For most people, bathroom remodels are quite the undertaking.  There are a lot of factors to consider – everything from functionality to style – and there are so many choices to make along the way. While it may seem like a costly and stressful thing to do, remember that updating your bathroom can add a great deal of value to your home, not to mention the awesome feeling of getting to enjoy fresh, new everything each time you’re in there.  Use these remodelling tips to help make the process easier and your bathroom everything you imagined it to be.


Tip #1 – Make a plan and stick to it…but remember to allow for unexpected circumstances to arise.  When planning, think about how you’ll transform and use the space, what types of fixtures and materials you want to use, and the overall style and design of the space.  You should also plan for something to go awry, because it usually does, and it often adds more time and expense to the project. However, it’s always better to expect something like this than be surprised by it, so plan, plan, plan.


Tip #2 – Don’t forget storage in your updated space.  Sometimes people get so excited about the main fixtures in the bathroom – toilet, tub/shower, and sink – that they forget they will also need storage in the space.  When remodeling, you have the opportunity to add storage like never before, so plan which storage solutions you’ll use, whether it’s shelving, cabinets or a combination, and where each piece will go.


Tip #3 – Indulge yourself where you can.  There are so many ways to easily and inexpensively incorporate elegance into your remodel.  For instance, something as simple as a thermostatic shower or as ornate as an Italian marble floor can be added to your design. Remember, your bathroom can be much more than a place to simply take care of business; it has the potential to be relaxing, spa-like haven – you just need to do it!
