That’s what brings us to today’s blog post – and it quickly turned into a two-part post, so make sure to keep an eye out for part two.
Five Dos of Bathroom Remodeling
Prepare for the Unexpected
There are so many things that can go wrong during a bathroom renovation and even more problems that can be uncovered. As you tear everything apart, you may find that there is water damage or mold growing from the continuous moisture in the space. We always recommend that people set aside at least ten percent of their budget for all these unknown issues.
Splurge on Your Shower
Not too many people have the time to soak in the tub in today’s world and if that is the case with you, really pay attention to this do. Showers are becoming bigger and better and you have the option to incorporate his and her shower heads, body sprays, and steam rooms into this space. Everyone has time for a five minute shower and these extras can turn those five minutes into a dream-like fantasy filled with relaxation.
Choose Water Efficiency
You may have a hard time finding a shower head, faucet, and toilet that isn’t water-efficient, but we know that there are still some out there. The reason we recommend that you choose water-efficient items is that you will save money on your water bill, since you will not be using as much water. In turn, that decreased water usage will help the environment. Many of the shower heads that are low flow still deliver an amazing pulse of water while you are in the shower, so you will not need to sacrifice your relaxation time at all.
Add Counter Space
We all have a lot of stuff in the bathroom and there is never enough space to put it all. In the past, people were more concerned about having two sinks for getting ready in the morning, but now everyone seems to want more counter space. People are in more of a rush in the morning, and no one wants to dig something out from under the vanity when they need it. Instead, they want everything at their fingertips and within reach.
There is no point in renovating the bathroom if you are not going to ventilate the space properly. Moisture can buildup in a bathroom quickly and it will not take long for mold and mildew to grow in yours if you do not take the proper precautions. We recommend that you take the extra step and install a humidity sensing unit that will turn on when the moisture in the air becomes too high.
