 7 Tips for Your Next Bathroom Remodel

1. Plan before you start

A little planning can go a long way when it comes to renovations. Even if you’re not working with a consultant, make sure you figure out a budget, a floor plan, and a schedule. Knowing what you want before you start will make the whole process a lot easier. Do the best you can to stick to your plan!

2. Light it right

The right lighting can make or break your bathroom. Besides overhead lights, you should also consider wall sconces, recessed lighting, and dimmers. These will add more appeal to the space without costing an arm and a leg.

3. Ventilation is key

Less exciting the lighting but very important: ventilation. A well-ventilated bathroom is a happy bathroom, but many home-renovators don’t give this enough attention. Not only will proper ventilation make your bathroom more comfortable, it will also make your renovation last longer.

4. Deceive with color and mirrors

Smaller bathroom? Don’t despair! There are ways around this. Make your space look bigger with large mirrors, glass shower doors, and pedestal sinks. Or stock your paint palette with lighter colors to make the room feel open and airy.

5. Floor it with style

Skip the hardwood floors when you remodel and go for something a little more water-resistant. Tile – from stone to ceramic – and vinyl both make great bathroom flooring when it comes to practicality, durability, and aesthetics.

6. Maximize space

Make your bathroom functional and fabulous by using all the space you can. Whether this means recessing or installing hooks, there are plenty of ways to make use of your space. Not a fan of cabinets? Open shelving works just as well and makes your space feel more spacious. Need more room? It might surprise you to know that you can recess everything from toilet paper holders to medicine cabinets to carve out a little more space.

7. Shop smart vintage, online deals, and salvage

You want your renovation to be unique but too often that means a higher price tag. Use a couple of our tricks to get the look you want at a price you can afford. Check online where other renovators may be selling leftover materials at a discount. Visit the local flea market or salvage yard to find unique décor on a budget.
