5 Things to Consider Before a Bathroom Renovation

5 Things to Consider Before a Bathroom Renovation

The bathroom is an essential part of a home. It is also one of the busiest areas of the home throughout the day. Just like any other room in the house, it is susceptible to wear and tear, hence, may need a repair or remodeling.

There are many different sizes of bathrooms. However, no matter the dimensions, the functionality should be the main focus of your bathroom renovation.

Here are the 5 things you may need to consider when planning a bathroom renovation:

#1 Plumbing

The right plumbing structure ensures that the water that goes through your faucets and drainage flows freely. Rusty water pipes and clogged drainage lines can be huge problems. Using the right pipe gauge and other fittings can help provide a proper plumbing structure.

Here are some tips that may help you with your bathroom plumbing:

  1. Avoid routing your plumbing structures through your exterior walls, if the design of your home will allow it.
  2. If acceptable, consider flexible tubing or pipes that do not crack at extremely low temperatures.
  3. Residential plumbing typically requires 11/2 inch pipes for drainage, however, 2-inch pipes are highly recommended for your plumbing structure if your framing allows for it.

#2 Lighting

The installation of lights may vary on the size and color of the bathroom. Mirrors inside the bathroom may also affect the lighting structure as mirrors tend to reflect and bounce light.

Here are some tips that may help you with your lighting needs:

  1. Try considering recessed light fixtures to brighten your bathroom.
  2. You may also want to install a light dimmer switch to adjust the brightness.
  3. Whether applying make-up or shaving, make sure that you install lights that are bright enough to help you see clearly.

#3 Niches for Toiletries

The bathroom should be a place where one can enjoy a relaxing shower after a long day. An organized bathroom can help wash away daily stress. Providing niches for your toiletries does not have to be luxurious or space-consuming. A recessed cubby is enough to give your soap and shampoo a permanent place and it does not have to take up a lot of space.

#4 Flooring

There is a wide variety of choices in terms of color, sizes and designs when it comes to bathroom floors. It is however, recommended to use smaller tiles as these offer more traction. Also make sure when using textures or smooth tiles to use those that are not slippery to ensure safety especially for kids.

#5 Fixtures

Bathroom fixtures include the toilet and the bathtub. Some homeowners also opt to place cabinets and shelves for a more organized bathroom.

Remember, the focus is functionality when renovating a bathroom. Fixtures need to fit perfectly.  It is also advisable to use fixtures and cabinetry that will allow you to move comfortably. Think: quality yet affordable fixtures.

These are just 5 things you may want to consider when renovating your bathroom. You may also need to consider repairing wall tiles or paint, ceiling replacements, sun roofing, bathroom plants, and other accessories.
