Are you thinking of renovating your bathroom? Here are some things to keep in mind before the work even begins! Do the job now and spare yourself a headache later.

The first thing to keep in mind is cost. You can’t begin the project without knowing how much you’ll need, and then add a bit of a financial buffer in case something goes wrong. Budgeting will involve a process of figuring out the size, the extent of the remodel, and even what tiles you want.

Know all the measurements. We cannot stress this enough.

One of the worst ways to design a bathroom is to make the toilet the first thing people see. Most often, the bathroom door is left open and seeing the toilet right away isn’t very pleasing. If you want the room to be as pleasant as the rest of the house, use something else as a focal point.

Do you have vintage finishes? If they’re not gaudy, why not leave them there? Those vintage finishes can be hard to replace and may be timeless.

Take a moment to think about the lighting. A well-lit space can give the room the feel of being bigger than it is, as well as accentuate numerous elements that you want to be highlighted. Decorative lighting is good too if that’s your thing.

Check the height of the sink. If you place it too low, you have a problem. If you set it too high, you have a different problem.

Consider a corner sink or smaller tub. If you don’t need the space that much, why go with something big when something smaller will serve the same purpose?

Pick the right vanity. One that’s too big could ruin your traffic route inside it. Too small and you’re going to need more space and storage. Pick the wrong material, and the maintenance can become a headache.

Double check the tile size. Most tiles are sold in European sizes, so you’ll want to double check the measurements. The small differences can make all the difference when the remodel begins.

Include a second way to dry out the bathroom. This can be useful in case of a leak, or if the room just gets more moisture than expected.#e you thinking of renovating your bathroom? Here are some things to keep in mind before the work even begins! Do the job now and spare yourself a headache later.
