Whether you’re undergoing bathroom remodeling to improve your current shower space or you want to convert your tub to a shower area, knowing exactly how to go about the process of planning and designing is important in creating a shower area that you would enjoy everyday. If you’re not sure about where to start, then you may want to take note of the following tips before you start your remodel:
Measurements are Important
Dividing your existing bathroom space into separate spaces for various purposes should be the first step in bathroom remodeling. You should know how much space you can dedicate to a shower area, how much space for the toilet, and for the vanity. If you’re converting an existing tub to a shower, then make sure to measure how much space you can dedicate to enclosures, especially if you plan to add a shower door.
The Danger of Overcrowding
If you want a bathroom that is conducive to relaxation, you should be wary of overcrowding your space. Sure, a large shower area is great but if it means having to sacrifice your bathroom vanity and bathroom storage, then you might want to rethink the amount of space you are dedicating to showering alone. The best thing to do when it comes to allocating space is to list down your top priorities. For instance, if you use your vanity a lot, then you should have enough space to move around but if you have a separate vanity in your bedroom, then you can just allocate a small corner of your bathroom for a small vanity.
Tiles and Amenities
When undergoing bathroom remodeling, it is best to choose your tiles before starting any construction. This will allow you to create one cohesive design and style for your bathroom. You don’t have to match your shower tiles to the rest of your bathroom tiles but make sure they complement each other. You should also add lights in the shower itself and if space permits, a shower bench is a great addition. You’d appreciate a shower bench even more if you were giving up your tub for a shower.
Planning is crucial to any remodeling project, so make sure to always plan ahead no matter how big or small the project is.
