Proper Planning For The Bathroom Of Your Dreams

By: teahupoo
Remodeling a bathroom is a very trendy project in the home improvement world for homeowners of all ages. It can range from simply painting and replacing countertops to doing a complete bathroom makeover project like you would see on HGTV tearing out the floors, cabinets, tubs, and sinks and starting over new. Here are some things you should consider before you take on a bathroom remodeling project.

Proper planning is essential for helping to achieve the design for the bathroom of your dreams. One of the first major decisions is whether you will take the project on yourself or hire an interior designer, bathroom remodeling contractor or some other home improvement expert. One of the major factors to consider at this stage is your budget and also prioritizing the things you want to remodel. Before you start planning you have to decide whether you just want to make minor repairs or give your bathroom a whole new look.

The next thing on the agenda is to measure the bathroom for proportions and to get an idea of how you can make the best use of the space you have available. Deciding on how to properly arrange everything and whether you want to enlarge the bathroom are some of the factors you will want to consider here. You should now consider a workable design that you really like and will be happy with for years to come because remodeling a bathroom is not something you want to do very often!

You can decide on whether to paint your walls or to tile with ceramic or granite tiles to go along with the design concept of your dream bathroom. You also need to decide on what type of flooring you want with options including ceramic tiles, linoleum and baseboards. I prefer tile myself because it is easy to clean as well as being durable and long lasting.
The net issue to consider especially if you are doing a bathroom makeover will be the appliances and fixtures that need remodeling or replacing with to go along with the design of the room. You may find that you will want to replace the lighting, bathtubs, sinks, showers, faucets and toilets so that everything is new and has the same character.

Remodeling a bathroom can be a fun and exciting project but it can also be overwhelming because of all the different things that have to be considered just to plan it out. It can be especially problematic if you only have one bathroom!
