When the time comes for you to update a bathroom, you've got some of the basics down. Below are five bathroom remodeling tips for beginners:
1. Plumbing Is Expensive to Move.
Yes, there are times when it makes sense to change the layout of the plumbing in a bathroom. However, if given the option not to, don't. Doing so can add to both the duration and cost of your project. This is one area where change doesn't need to be made for the sake of making change.
2. You Are on the Supplier's Time frame, Not the Other Way Around.
When ordering custom items such as tiles, vanities, light fixtures and bathtubs, the supplier, not the homeowner, dictates the time frame the items will be available. To keep your project moving as quickly as possible, select these items at the very start of the project and do not start the demo process until the arrival date (or thereafter) in order to avoid having a bathroom that's a construction zone for several weeks.
3. Now Is the Time to Amplify Natural Light.
Many bathrooms are in areas of the home that do not have windows, which means poor lighting and air circulation. Remedy this situation by adding a sun tunnel or skylights to your bathroom.
As an added bonus, the federal government is currently offering tax credits of up to 30 percent on skylights. There are even companies that offer battery powered skylights that have rain sensors that automatically close the unit upon detection of rain.
4. Consider a Walk-In Shower.
If you're looking to replace your current shower, a walk-in shower may be worth considering. Eliminating the step up can make the room appear larger. It's also worth considering for homeowners who plan to retire in their current home.
5. Beware of Trends.
Ever been in a bathroom that still has an avocado green toilet? Looks out of place, doesn't it? Opt for trendy items that can be swapped out easily such as rugs, shower curtains and toothbrush holders and keep your toilet and bathtub in traditional hues.
