The bathroom is an essential part of the household. This is a place of comfort and relaxation, and for busy mums with small children, it is a space for a little peace and quiet. It goes without saying that you would decide to renovate the bathroom a few times in this lifetime and there is nothing wrong with that. You would want your bathroom space to continue to spark joy and when it doesn’t, it is probably time for a much-needed renovation.
Here are top 5 things you might want to consider when you start planning to renovate your bathroom space:
Make a budget
As bathroom remodelling would entail a considerable expense, it is best that you create a budget for this project to determine the scope of your renovation. Consider the fixture that you might have to add to improve your bathroom, the things you might be able to re-use from your existing set-up, and the numbers of the actual repair and remodelling work that you want to get done.
It would prove helpful if you would also include in your budget calculation a provision for an extra lavatory if there are multiple people who will need to use the bathroom at the same time, or a provision for extra storage to help keep the space spic and span.
Add a bathtub
An important part of bathroom remodelling is deciding to add features to help improve the space or make bathtime even more relaxing. A new bathtub will be a perfect addition to a bathroom remodel. You must decided if you prefer a stand-alone bathtub or you would rather have a bathtub-shower combo, a rather old idea which will work perfectly in tight and smaller bathrooms.
Improved ventilation is an important factor to consider during bathroom renovation. A well ventilated bathroom allows you to be more comfortable while taking a shower or doing your business in there. Proper ventilation also prevents the growth of bacteria in the space, as well as thwart the proliferation of molds and mildews in your bathroom.
If your bathroom space will not allow the addition of more windows, you may consider adding a ventilation fan to help improve the over-all circulation in the room.
Install lighting fixtures
Proper lighting is also an important thing to consider when remodelling your bathroom. A well-lit space will allow you to more freely and safely around your bathroom. It will also improve your experience, as well as allow you to do other bathroom-related activities, like grooming and shaving. Decide between a side-mounted scones, or pendant lighting, or whether you would opt for layers of lights, instead.
Adding plants indoors is all the rage and it is a trend that is bound to stay. Your bathroom is a good spot to consider adding in more greens. It will not only improve its over-all aesthetics and bring an element of the outdoors in but plants will also help purify the air you breathe of impurities, like dusts and germs.
Consider adding in pothos, snake plant, or spider plant into your bathroom, as these plants thrive well on low light and are easy to care for especially for beginners.
