Giving your bathroom a makeover can be a freeing experience. Out with the old, in with the new, and you will enjoy spending time in the bathroom again! How do you know where to start? How do you know what to consider? Speaking with a contractor is a great first step to take so you can come up with the perfect design and figure out a budget. The following are a few aspects of bathroom remodeling that you can get started with.
Upgrading your cabinetry is a sure way to improve the overall look of the bathroom. Dark cabinets might make the space feel smaller, while a lighter color could really brighten up the room. Bathrooms aren’t typically the most spacious room in the house, but a well thought out cabinetry layout could make it feel a lot bigger.
Flooring is an important topic to discuss with your bathroom remodeling builder. Because it’s most likely going to be exposed to a great amount of water and moisture, you’ll want it to be made from a waterproof or water-resistant material. Tile is an obvious option and there are a lot of different styles and colors to choose from. Vinyl flooring is another choice that many homeowners consider, and with the advances of production, it can be made to look like hardwood and perform like tile.
You need a nice, relaxing place to soak after a long day, but sometimes you just need a quick shower. Of course there are combinations for a bathroom with little space to work with, but if you have the space, you might consider a separate shower and bathtub. With many styles and sizes to choose from, there’s sure to be something that suits your fancy.
While cabinetry, flooring and a shower/tub are important considerations, realize a bathroom remodeling project will have to include a whole lot more. Speak with a local contractor today to find out what more you’ll need and how to get started.
