Many homeowners shy away from bathroom remodeling due to a number of factors. They may be hesitant because of budget limitations, time limitations, or both. In addition to this, some people just don’t want to deal with all of the little hassles that remodeling a bathroom can bring about. However, with a bit of smart planning and budget stretching, anyone can have their bathroom remodeled without using too much time, money and effort. Here are a few simple tips that you can use to help you turn the bathroom of your dreams into reality.
In order to make things easier for you later on, proper planning is in order. This will also help you stretch your budget later since you will know beforehand what you can afford to put inside your bathroom. The planning phase can be divided into three sub-phases; namely, functional planning, layout planning, and design planning.
When it comes to functional planning for bathroom remodeling, you will need to decide on how you intend to use your bathroom. Will you use it to take showers? Do you want a tub in your bathroom? Do you need a vanity that two people can use at the same time? These are a few questions that will affect the functionality of your bathroom. You may opt to put in a shower enclosure or a tub. In fact, you may also opt to install both. For your vanity, you may opt for one sink or two depending on your needs. Once you know how you will be using your bathroom, you can start planning the layout.
When you have listed down all of the elements that you want in your bathroom, you will have to lay out everything so that they will fit inside your bathroom. Make sure that you don’t cram to many things into your bathroom since space is often at a premium in small rooms like this.
After the layout has been decided upon, you can now move on to the aesthetics of your bathroom. Pick a theme that you are comfortable with. Once you’ve decided on a theme, you can now pick the main colors that you will use in your bathroom remodeling project. After this, you can start choosing fixtures that will complement both the theme and the color scheme of your new bathroom.
Doing things in an organized and well-planned manner can make even the most complicated project a whole lot easier to accomplish. With enough planning, you are now a lot closer to achieving the bathroom of your dreams.
