One of the most important parts of the house is the bathroom. It is not only important that the bathroom is always clean and fresh-smelling. It is also important to make sure that its design meets your tastes and preferences and its layout is suitable for your lifestyle and bathroom habits.
Below is a list of bathroom remodeling ideas and tips that you need to consider if you are planning to have a major bathroom renovation.
Add storage units
You can find hundreds of different things in a bathroom especially if it’s a woman’s bathroom. There are towels, makeup supplies, hygiene products, cleaning supplies, first aid and medicine supplies, aroma therapy products, and so on. You have to make sure that you have enough storage for all these things to avoid cluttering your bathroom. You can install a medicine cabinet for your medicines and first aid kits and drawer in your bathroom counter for all your beauty products and supplies. You can also install a cabinet under the sink or counter where you can keep all your cleaning supplies.
Have enough ventilation
When remodeling a bathroom, it is important to consider the ventilation or the air that circulates inside the bathroom. Poor ventilation causes mold and mildew to develop in your bathroom walls and fixtures. It is important that air enters freely in your bathroom to keep everything fresh and dry. This also keeps your bathroom from smelling bad. When renovating your bathroom, you should consider installing a vent fan that is appropriate for the size of your bathroom.
Choose appropriate lighting
It is important to keep your bathroom well-lit. Bathrooms have different parts that require different types of lighting. For example, you can install sconces near your bathroom vanity where you apply makeup or shave to make it easier for you to see what you are doing. You can install dim lights near your bathtub for a more relaxing ambience. For general lighting in your bathroom, just install overhead lights that can brighten up the whole space.
Pick elegant and classic fixtures
You should choose elegant and classic fixtures for your bathroom that will not go out of style. This applies when choosing faucets, sink designs, bathtubs, lighting fixtures, cabinets, and so on. By choosing something that never goes out of style, you do not have to replace your fixtures every time a new trend comes out just to keep your bathroom from looking outdated. It is also important to choose something that can stand the test of time to also save money. They may be more expensive when you initially buy them but at least they will last for a very long time.
A bathroom will not be complete without a mirror. You can install a mirror over the vanity area where you apply makeup and shave. You can also install a full-length mirror in the shower area if you want to see how your body looks like without clothes and a mirror near the bathtub. Adding a large mirror in a small bathroom also gives the illusion of space, which makes your tiny bathroom appear bigger.
