Bathroom Remodeling Projects

If you are undertaking a bathroom remodeling project then it is first important to do adequate planning and preparation. Of all the rooms in the house the bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in the house yet is also a very personal space. It is the perfect room to express your own personality by making changes in the design and style. It is also a room that requires a number of special skills as there is a combination of electricity and water which does not make a pleasant mix and can potentially be very dangerous.

The first step is to initially find some bathroom remodel ideas to get an idea of the way you want the bathroom to look. I like to initially do some research by looking in magazines. They often show the latest designed bathrooms and all the contemporary fixtures and fittings although it is important to remember that usually magazines display top of the range, expensive items. Taking cuttings from the magazines and sticking them to a board is a good exercise to collect and display the features you like. Together with swatches of color and you’re well on your way to getting a good idea of what you like.

Attending show homes is a good way to get an idea of the latest bathroom fixturesBathroom Remodelingin their setting. It gives you a chance to see what they look like in a well designed bathroom and gives you a chance to touch and feel the quality of them.

Another approach is to think about what sort of things you like. For example, if you like taking long walks in the woods or on the beach then try and incorporate these ideas into the design. Items such as pebbles, dried leaves and driftwood are excellent bathroom remodeling ideas. They are simple, cheap yet can produce stunning effects. Pieces of driftwood placed on a shelf or used to make a picture or mirror frame can look great. If you like modern or contemporary designs or art then there is an abundance of fixtures and fittings to find. Items such as stainless steel faucets and glass can go a long way to producing a contemporary look. You’ll find examples of these in the bathroom remodel pictures you collected earlier from magazines.

Once you have all your ideas collected, the next step is to start looking online. Many manufacturers, wholesalers and stores advertise online. It is a great way to find out about all the fixtures available, along with the prices. It is the perfect way to compare prices from the comfort of your own armchair. Many companies you find online will also ship to your house, again, saving a lot of time allowing you to get your remodeling project underway in no time at all.

An important fact to consider is whether you want to install a bathtub or dedicated walk in shower or indeed both. Adding a shower gives you more options and can increase the value of your home as many people nowadays prefer to take showers. For even more luxury, but expense, steam showers are a fantastic addition. Giving you somewhere to relax and unwind after a hard day at work.

After taking all these points into consideration you are now prepared for your bathroom remodeling project and to start the next stage…… building it.
