Design Tricks That Can Make Your Bathroom Remodeling Project A Success
Any Ottawa homeowner who has had their bathroom remodeled will tell you what a big difference it makes. The bathroom is far too often written off as a room that is nothing more than a utilitarian room and not worth working on, unless something breaks. Yet savvy homeowners know that a renovated bathroom can provide you with plenty of amazing benefits.
Before actually getting started on this type of project, however, it is important to plan everything out. This will be the difference between a successful bathroom renovation and a failure. Learning from industry experts is one surefire way to ensure that your project turns out the way that you had hoped for.
Avoid the Mistakes
It's not just about what you should do to make your project a successful one, it is about learning all the pitfalls that you want to avoid. While there are plenty of things that you should learn about, here are a few of the important ones that will help keep your design working for you.
Avoid making the toilet the first detail you see once you open the door. The main reason for this is because the bathroom door tends to get left open. When this happens, your toilet is going to be the first thing anyone sees for that entire floor of your home. Also, avoid a design layout that makes the toilet the focal point of the room since there are so many other design elements that you could include that should steal the spotlight.Think about storage. Be realistic about your storage, too. Oftentimes, a homeowner will just consider the hallway closet the bathroom storage. That may save you space in your bathroom, but will prove to be a hassle when you step out of the shower and realize you have no towel. At least keep a small set of open shelves for the necessities like extra towels and toilet paper.
Another great storage solution is the vanity. While a sleek and modern sink without under compartment storage looks fancy, it often is not functional. If you have a smaller bathroom and need additional storage, your vanity can be the ideal way thing to provide this.
Do not overlook the importance of lighting in your bathroom. In fact, it is almost better to plan for too much lighting than to be left without enough. Natural light is best; creating a beautiful and warm setting. However, you also need to plan for functional lights to help with task like shaving and makeup application. Have plenty of functional lighting, that can also be dialed down for a softer mood when you switch to relaxing in the tub at the end of a long day mode.
Plan for the right height, or your bathroom will never be user-friendly for you and your family. Plan the vanity and sink height according to what will work best for your family. The idea is to be able to take care of tasks like washing your hands and brushing your teeth, and be able to do so comfortably.
