mini5An effective bathroom renovation should fit your needs, budget, timeline and be both functional and esthetically appealing. Here are 5 tips to help you in your bathroom renovation project:

1. Sit in a bathtub before buying it. Always.

Bathtubs can be deceiving. Sit in your bathtub before you buy it to get a feel for it. Is it the right depth? Length? Does it have enough elbow room? Did you want a bathtub that will fit two people? Make sure you know what you want before you buy it, returning a bathtub after you purchase it can be a huge task!

2. Select durable flooring.

Bathroom floors see a significant amount of foot traffic and wear and tear. Work with your contractor to find flooring that fits your budget, style and is durable. Ceramic, stone and marble tiles are all water-resistant and durable choices.

3. Maximize Space.

If you have a small bathroom, tell your contractor you want to maximize space. Often storage space can be maximized with a proper layout, and sometimes even a small closet located next to the bathroom can be turned into additional bathroom space! Your bathroom reno contractor will be able to come up with a design to maximize space to suit your needs.

4.Require Good Lighting.

Good lighting is essential to a beautiful bathroom. Your contractor can suggest different types of lighting to prevent shadows, make your room sparkle, or give it a sensual feel. Dimmers always go well with a nice, deep bathtub!

5.Buy a good toilet.

Most people forget about the toilet, or buy the cheapest one possible so they can spend the budget elsewhere. Make sure you get a toilet that will last a long time, so you don’t have leaks or issues later on. Consider a mid-range toilet: one that is not super expensive nor super cheap. Also make sure it comes with a warranty.
