Bathroom remodeling is a big project. Whether you’re doing the whole bathroom or just replacing some worn flooring, you want to make sure that you spend your budget and time wisely. One thing that you can do is look into getting an accessible tub and shower. These are great features that will make your bathroom safer and more convenient for everyone in your household.
The most common element to remodeling any room in the house is lighting. The right lighting will enhance the space and can really draw the eyes away from the grime and dirt of your sink and toilet. If you want to add some extra lighting to your bathroom, you can use a few special effects lights, such as sconces over your toilet and tub, floating chandeliers over the tub and shower head, or track lighting over the vanity area. However, if you have limited lighting in the bathroom, you may be limited to non-traditional bathroom lights like compact lamps, halogen, or low wattage bulbs.
Adding some lighting to your bathroom can also add value to your home. If you remodel your bathroom and include new fixtures, such as a vanity with a skylight or frosted glass doors, it will add value to your home. This is especially true if you replace worn and faded fixtures, add a new fixture, or add a floor to wall light or medicine cabinet. You can also add value to your home by changing your bathtub and adding a showerhead to it.
Another way that you can add value to your home is to add additional bathroom features, like a new tile backsplash, new fixtures around the shower area, new toilets with a roll-out shower or walk-in tub, or a built-in, glass-enclosed toilet. These are all simple to do, but can take a while to put in, as they involve cutting holes in walls, putting in floorboards, installing toilet and shower fixtures, replacing the plumbing, and adding lighting to the shower area. For many homeowners, these are all tasks that they do well with their handyman.
When you’re planning a bathroom remodel, it might be helpful to look at existing bathrooms for ideas. There may be rooms in your home that just need a fresh coat of paint, an updating of a design or a few new features. Even if you don’t do a full bathroom remodel, just changing a few things like adding some new lighting, installing a new faucet or a vanity sink, can make a big difference in the look of your bathroom and give it a more updated look.
Remodeling bathrooms isn’t just about painting the walls, installing new flooring, installing new faucets, and sinks, adding new mirrors, or changing the toilet. Many times, homeowners can remodel their bathrooms without spending a lot of money by simply adding a few new items. Bathroom remodels can be a great way for homeowners to add value to their home. There’s no reason that anyone should have to spend thousands of dollars to remodel their bathrooms and it can be done with simple ideas and items that most people already have laying around the house.
