5 Design Tips Every Homeowner Should Know Before Remodeling a Bathroom

If you are remodeling the bathroom, there are definitely some things homeowners should know about before they get started. By looking over the design tips below, you can save yourself a lot of time, money and headaches!

  1. Understand lighting.
    It’s important to understand what kind of lighting will suit your needs, as in whether you’d like hard or soft lighting. If the bathroom doesn’t have a lot of natural light, you might consider using halogen bulbs to recreate the sun’s rays. Also, consider how the lighting will be placed and what its light will shine on.
  1. Embrace the vintage.
    A bathroom remodel doesn’t necessarily mean “out with the old, and in with the new” – you are giving the space an updated look. If you have wall tiles in the room, for example, they can be complemented by added color splashes from curtains or appliances.
  1. Save space with a corner sink.
    A corner sink can be a great help if you have a tight space that you are working with. Since it’s a smaller area, you can likely splurge on higher-end countertops or accents that would not be as cost-effective if it was for a bigger countertop.
  1. Double and triple check tile sizes.
    Sometimes there can be errors in measuring tile. Some retailers consider grout joint when they provide the measurements and others don’t. Also, if the tile comes from Europe, there may be an error in converting the sizes from millimeters to inches.
  1. Watch wood to tile transitions.
    If you have hardwood flooring outside the door of the bathroom and you are planning to use tile in your bathroom remodel, make sure that the transition between these two different materials makes sense. It can be difficult to do, so you might want to consult with a professional remodeling company like Progressive Builders to figure out the best plan.
