Thinking about remodeling your bathroom?


Updating a bathroom in a home is a common renovation project. This project typically requires the assistance of a plumber and even a contractor. There are many things to consider before starting any type of remodeling project in a bathroom. Here are five things a homeowner should consider before a remodel

Type: There are many types of bathrooms that can be found in a home. A master bath is a bathroom accessed from the master bedroom. A guest bathroom is a secondary bathroom added on the other side of a house. This bathroom will be smaller than a master bath, but have the same fixtures. Another type of bathroom found in a home called a half bath. This is a small bathroom that only has a toilet and a sink.

Fixtures: The fixtures are the faucets and handles on a sink and in the shower or the tub. These will need to look the same to create a cohesive look. This means making sure the same styles are used on the sink, the tub, or a shower.

Efficiency: Efficient use of water is a great way to save money on a utility bill. One of the biggest features in a bathroom that uses the most water is the toilet. Newer toilets will use about 1.6 gallons of water per flush. Another option is to install a low-flow showerhead. These have the same pressure as many older models, but use much less water.

Flooring: The most common type of flooring to use in a bathroom is tile. Tiles come in many types and needs to be installed following specific instructions. A homeowner can choose ceramic tile, slate, or use a vinyl tile. The number of tiles can be calculated by determining the square footage of the floor in the bathroom.

Floor Plan: This is where cabinets, vanities, the toilet, a tub, or shower will be located. Most bathroom remodels in a home will use the same floor plan. Moving fixtures, such as a toiler or vanity, will give a bathroom a brand new look and can increase the floor space.
