Bathrooms are very important rooms in your home that can look great and add value to your home. One that is modernly designed can add joy to your lifestyle, offering functional and comfortable interior design and pleasant room decorating. Here are a few tips before you start your project.
Before you start shopping for vanities and light fixtures, make sure you have a well thought out plan for the renovation. Having an idea on the type of tub, toilet, faucets, walls, cabinets, flooring is good to start out with because then you will know what you need to buy and make a good estimate on costs. But the key is to blend the bathroom style with the rest of the house, but not too much or it might end up looking plain. If you are having trouble on the type of colors or color palette to choose from, here is a good website that provides color pallets that are inspired by everyday scenes. http://www.design-seeds.com
Space planning depends on yourself and the way you use the space. But always keep in mind when planning, that if you have to move internal plumbing or ventilation to accommodate your new design then the price of your project will rise. Have these in check when you are planning and make sure they go well together in design; vanity, shower/tub combo, tub, shower, toilet, faucets, backsplash, tiles, countertops, mirrors and light fixtures. When choosing these, make sure you make the appropriate space for each zone, the last thing someone would want would be to use shower that is to small or a toilet that is too big.
Attractive, comfortable and modern bathrooms sell homes. The return on your investment will be good if you budget correctly, because bathrooms are incredibly important rooms in your home and need to be maintained properly and decorated in style. So when you are remodeling a bathroom, make sure you plan out what you will be doing and how. Vanities are also important in your bathroom, in the time that you are choosing the vanity it will help to make sure you get the correct size. For example, if the slot width is 47 inches wide, I would recommend getting a vanity that is a couple of inches less, like 44 inches. The reason for that is if you get the exact width it might be a tight slide when you install the vanity and you might even have to sand it down or go back to the store to get a new one. With a couple of inches off you can easily slide it in and at the end cover the sides with a small tablet of wood, painted the same color of the cabinets.
These are quick thoughts to consider when you decide to start the project, and if you are not sure on how much it will cost or how long it will take then you should ask for a few contractor estimates. Get a few inputs and ideas and once decided then begin. Good luck!
