What to Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Remodeling your home can be a huge deal. You may do it for personal reasons, to bring up the value in your home or to prepare for reselling. Whatever your decision is to tackle a bathroom remodeling consider these options for your new design.

Flooring is a great way to change the entire look of your bathroom. You can choose a tile, laminate, or even hardwood for your new bathroom flooring. Each style has its own ups and downs and price range so when deciding you should consider the durability of the style you choose, ease of installation, and what kind of maintenance it requires to keep it beautiful for years. Flooring is something you will need to live with for quite some time, so ensure you make the right choice and compare options before laying it down during your bathroom remodeling.

Bathtubs and showers are a very important part of your bathroom. If you have kids you want to have a tub for them to play in. Bath time is one of the best ways to calm your little ones and get them ready for bed. Living without a tub while having a family is doable, but it doesn’t seem to be the most comfortable option unless your kids are teens. Teens prefer to shower anyways so if this is the case you can nix the whole bathtub idea and just install a shower. Showers have been changing and evolving over the years, you can have dual shower heads, nozzles that have long hoses that come from the wall and you can even have seats installed for elderly or physically challenged people. If you choose to get a bathtub you could get a larger tub with jets, a walk in tub with a seat and sealed door, or just your basic bathtub.

Sinks are another bathroom remodeling item to consider. You may wish to install larger sinks for your family if they happen to be sloppy when washing hands and brushing teeth. You can install simple taps to turn on the water as well if you have those old pull up taps that are harder for young children to use. If you’re remodeling with a spouse in mind you can always install his and hers sinks in your bathroom. This helps give you more room for yourself when getting ready for bed at night or getting up in the morning. Along with your sinks, you can choose gorgeous countertops to match. There are many different options and styles of counters available.
