The Top Things To Know Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

A bathroom makeover is a big task, and to do it right you’ll want to be prepared. A good remodel can turn your once date bathroom into your spa, but it will take planning to do so. Before you head into your next home repair project, here’s what you should know.

Decide Your Budget

The first part of starting a bathroom remodel is to understand what you are looking to spend. Once you have a clear idea of your budget, you’ll want to be sure you have a little wiggle room too. Have a range will allow you to be prepared for any issues that could come your way.

Consider Positioning

A bathroom remodel does not mean your fixtures must stay where they were. Consider moving your fixtures around to optimize space — and try to keep your toilet bowl far from the door if you can!

Decide Your Style

The next thing you to consider is your overall bathroom style. Why type of decor are you looking to display? Once you have an idea of the style you are looking for, you’ll want to start pricing out fixtures to go along with it!

Consider Height

When it comes to purchasing and installing your shower heads and toilets bowl and sink — height can vary! Be sure to double check that everything is at an appropriate height to leave you and your family comfortable. Too low or too high, and you could be dealing with a lifetime of hunched over showers.

Light it Up

Finally, you’ll want to provide enough light throughout. Lighting makes and breaks a room — and the right lighting will be layered adding dimension!
