Every room in a house is essential, yet a bathroom has the most significance. Why? It’s because you do things in there you can’t do anywhere else in the home. And, it’s private, personal stuff. The last thing anyone wants when they are brushing their teeth is to find mould on the sink. Ewwww! A bathroom should shine and sparkle and be a place you love spending time. But, before you bathe in its majesty, you need inspiration. Only then can you be sure the end product is everything you ever wanted in a bathroom.
The following are the details to consider.
Define The Goal
What is the overall target you are trying to hit? Do you want a modern bathroom with all the trimmings? Or, do you prefer something old and retro? These questions are essential to answer because the fittings are the foundation of the style. If you want a brand spanking new bathroom, there is no need for a bath and ornate accessories. Modern bathrooms have showers and tiles for ease of access and cleaning purposes. Also, think about the people who will use the room. Whether it’s you, your partner or the kids, there should be elements which suit their needs. Although, a feature such as a mirror is a generic element everyone will love.
Create A Book
The idea of a scrapbook will not appeal to lots of homeowners for a simple reason: the internet. It isn’t difficult to go online and peruse a website which has a variety of different bathrooms and bathroom accessories. However, only visiting one site is a waste because there are thousands of potential features on the market. And, it’s almost impossible to keep them all in your head. The trick is to make a copy or tear out a page in a magazine of your most loved features. Then, you can consult the scrapbook and pick out your favourites. It’s a walk in the park.
Not the interruptions to the renovation, although there will be one or two. No, this refers to the disruptions in your life as a result of the remodel. Unlike a bedroom or a kitchen, it’s not possible to relocate to another area of the house. For example, you can sleep elsewhere or buy portable cooking utensils. No one is going to move the toilet into another room for two to three months. With this in mind, try and keep the major changes to a minimum. That way, the contractor will finish quickly and you can DIY the rest.
Build A Budget
A remodel costs money. Sadly, you may not have the correct amount at this time. Don’t fret because you can build up a budget. However, it’s vital that you understand the nuances of a home renovation. The main thing to keep in mind is the fluctuation in price. A contractor will quote one price and end up quoting another further down the line. So, the more money you have the less hassle it will cause. As a rule, try and save an extra ten percent on top.
Follow these tips and the bathroom should be the most stunning room in the house.
