10 Essential Things Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

Regardless of having a simple room or a master en-suite, the functionality should be at the heart of remodeling your bathroom. There are many things we need to know before remodeling a bathroom.




1.PLUMBING

House-plumbing normally uses the 11⁄2-inch drain pipes. You will be shocked at how much gunk and hair that goes down that drain. You might not know this but the difference in cost to upgrade to a 2-inch drain is significantly small, and unless your frame somehow disallows the improvement, you might want to consider increasing your shower drain to 2 inches. The larger the drain, the less likely it is to be clogged. Another important thing to note when you are working on the plumbing system is, if you live in an area where temperatures drop during the winter, it is important to build a water system line that avoids the exterior wall.

2. WALL-HUNG TOILETS

The above fixtures have lately gained popularity, and that is for a justifiable reason. They no longer cost a fortune, and they also help to save your bathroom space since the tank is hidden behind the wall, away from everyone’s sight. Wall-hung toilets also give out a modern and clean touch to your bathroom. However, if you are not comfortable with this fixture and thought of returning to a floor-mounted unit, you can solve your concern by not doing much, you only have to rework the supply.



3. WINDOW IN THE SHOWER

Windows in a shower can be a great feature if it is done properly. First, you can opt for a frosted-glass panel for better privacy. It is also preferable to install one that can be opened to let the fresh air come through. Consequently, ensure the sill is sloping down and away for excellent drainage. Finally, a tilting-and-turn window is also a great choice since it refutes the handles from rusting and it also offers greater privacy even though they are tilted open.




4. SHOWER SILL

Shower sill works as important as a window ledge. You need to ensure that everything that flows would slope into the shower properly. You might want to opt for solid materials, like stone or quartz.




5. SHOWER FLOORS

Bigger tiles often cause a poor flow and slippery surface in the shower. This is because they are mostly not textured and the groove lines are much further apart as compared to small tiles. In contrast, smaller tiles, whether textured or not, offer more traction and are generally the norm for shower floors.


6. SHOWER BASES

Gone were the days of those boring beige prefabricated shower bases. You can now choose from a variety of modern, clean bases made of acrylic or porcelain.



7. MEDICINE CABINETS

Have you reserved some space for a medicine cabinet in your bathroom? This is a fantastic hack for you to save a few inches of space over a shallow vanity, and the additional framing will not break the budget. If this was not an option, please ensure you spare some space on your vanity by 4 to 5 inches to organize your medicine.


8. LIGHTING

Take a look at the recessed light fixtures across your ceiling that brighten up the room. Include one or more correct shower trim in your shower. Install a dimmer switch that allows you to adjust the mood in your bathroom. You might want to consider the visual appeal and functional lighting before installing a mirror. Whether applying make-up or shaving, some bright light fixtures which are correctly placed can go a long way.


9. DRAWER STORAGE

Consider setting up a drawer storage vanity rather than just a door in your bathroom. A drawer is easier to reach and easier to organize as compared to a door. It also results in a neat-looking bathroom. Drawers can also be designed to cut across the plumbing which allows you to accommodate large items.

10. SHOWER OR TUB

If you consider a bathtub or a shower-only option, ask yourself how many baths did you take in a year. All you need to know is you are remodeling your house for yourself, not a future buyer. Therefore, you should consider what works best for you at the moment, and start thinking of how you shall make your bathroom a better place.

In conclusion, your bathroom will become as good as new if you know all the important things that need to renovate for your bathroom.
