Find Your Inspiration and Focus on the Details of Bathroom Remodeling

Congratulations on finally taking the time to remodel your bathroom! This is such a fun space to design and plan, although it will take a lot of work to get it to become the room of your dreams. We recommend beginning by determining what inspires you and how you want to utilize this space to its fullest potential. Once you have that figured out, the real fun begins with all the little details.

Here are 5 tips that will help you as you are getting inspired and focusing on the details of your bathroom remodel:

Splurge on Your Shower or Bathtub

The item that is within the middle of every bathroom remodel is the shower and/or the bathtub. Therefore, these features should have your complete attention and the budget that they deserve. We recommend at least replacing the fixtures during your bathroom remodel, but a tub or shower replacement can really make the room look luxurious and elegant.

Determine the Dimensions of Standard Bathrooms

You may have grand plans for your bathroom remodel, but without the knowledge of the dimensions of standard bathrooms you may end up a little deflated. You should know that toilets require between thirty and thirty-six inches of space, while standard bathtubs normally measure sixty inches in length and thirty inches in width. A sink only needs thirty inches, but that is one with a very tiny countertop. Once you know these measurements, you will be able to plan your bathroom design better with the space that you have.

Find Inspiration Everywhere You Look!

Inspiration for your bathroom remodel can come from anywhere, but you can start by researching remodeling blogs, magazines, and showrooms. However, do not be surprised if the color that you choose comes from the ocean or your décor comes from items that you found on recent travels.

Plan and then Plan Some More

You can never plan enough for your bathroom remodel, which is why we suggest continuing the planning process until every detail is figured out and you are ready to start the work. This can take a long time, but you won’t have as many surprises or issues popping up during the remodeling process.

Keep Even the Smallest Details in Mind

It is easy to forget about those small details like towel rods, rugs, and even the outlet covers when you are working on a remodel. Make sure that these items and many more are included within your plan, so you do not run out of time or money before everything is completed.

These five tips will ensure that you have a successful bathroom remodel, even though it is going to take a little longer than you want it to. A professional will be able to assist you with all the planning, designing, and work, so that you end up with the bathroom of your dreams!
