Bathroom renovation is one of the biggest home improvements homeowners can take on. But, at the same time, they can make some of the best improvements and raise home value at the same time. Here are a few ideas to help you get the most from your project.
Put Functionality First
Everyone wants their bathroom to look nice and perhaps even have an elegant, luxurious feel to it. But that appearance won’t do you much good if the bathroom isn’t functioning properly. Think about usage and flow. How much counter space do you need? Where would storage be the most useful? Once you get the practical things into place, you can think further about aesthetics.
Consider Natural Light
Older bathrooms tend to be completely closed off from the rest of the house and the outside world. This is because you need the utmost privacy in that space. However, when you are running bathroom renovations, you might consider adding natural light in some way to brighten the room and make it feel larger and more open. Put in a skylight, or perhaps a gliding window high up on the wall. You don’t sacrifice privacy, but you get natural light the space could really use.
Keep Plumbing In Place And Save
If at all possible, it’s best to keep your plumbing fixtures in place if you are on a budget. If the only way to get the bathroom renovation you want is to move the shower or other things, so be it. But if you want to keep things in a reasonable range, try to keep fixtures in place and move items around them to ensure that you get functionality without too high of a price.
Paint Makes A Huge Difference in a Bathroom Renovation
Painting the bathroom is likely going to be a part of the bathroom renovation. The color you choose will make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of the space. Consider something light to make the most of the lighting within the room.
