The bathroom is a space in your house that should have some of your attention when it comes to remodeling and renovating. It is a space you are going to spend a portion of your day in. Many people want to spend time in their bathroom as a way to unwind and relax after a long day. That is one of the reasons that it is on the top of the list when it comes to remodeling projects. It is also a space you can do a lot with even if the space is not very large. The other benefit is that the money that you put into your bathroom remodel wil reflect in the value of the home. There are aspects of the bathroom that you want to consider when planning out your remodel. ANE Glass & Mirror outlines some considerations for your new bathroom remodel.
Choose a Bathtub or Glass Shower Enclosure
One of the areas of a bathroom remodel that some people fret over is what to do about the shower or bathtub space. This is part of the room that you want to make some considerations about. There are pros and cons to showers versus a bathtub so you need to decide what is best. You need to look at the ages of the people that will be using the bathroom. Some are too old or too young to shower only meaning you will want a tub. Some people don’t find a tub relaxing or necessary so it would be a waste to put in. The other consideration is how much water each of the units will use. You can save on water consumption if you have a shower rather than a bathtub. Once you know if you want a shower or bathtub you can look at which style is best for you. Glass shower enclosures give the illusion of a more spacious space.
Bathroom Sink & Vanity Layout
The bathroom will have a sink and counter space that you can make some decisions about. Some people choose to have a double sink so that the counter is anchored by a sink on each end. This lets more than one person get ready at the same time. You also want to decide what you want the sink and counter set on. Do you want to have a standard wood cabinet that has storage space? Do you want to use a pedestal sink that has no coverage underneath? The sink layout should be decided on so that the rest of the room can be set.
One of the other areas of the bathroom that is important to think about is the toilet. Do you have a toilet that is in a room separate or is the toilet out in the open? You want to decide on the height of the toilet and of course the width as well. You can also choose a toilet that is more energy efficient and saves on water when you use it. Be sure you take time to choose the best toilet to fit your space.
