Tips for Building Beautiful, Functional Bathrooms that Last

Like the kitchen and bedroom, your bathroom is one of the most highly trafficked areas of your home, which is why keeping it up to date is essential. Doing so can not only improve your comfort, but it can also help boost your home’s resale value, especially if you update it with new fixtures and appliances.

As one of Brockville’s leading bathroom renovation contractors, the team from Custom Decor wants to share some tips to help inspire your next project. Take a look below!

Consider Your Family’s Needs

One of the foremost considerations you should make while planning for your bathroom renovation is the needs of your family. Larger families will require more storage space. It’s also a good idea to keep accessibility in mind during a bathroom renovation, installing a walk-in shower instead of a tub, or support bars in the shower and toilet area for increased safety.

Create a Detailed & Itemized Budget

You may have a good idea of the budget you’ll have to work with from the outset, but breaking it down into an itemized list can be incredibly helpful. When settling on a budget, be sure to include items such as:

  • Flooring
  • Accessories
  • Paint, trim & detailing
  • Fixtures
  • Storage areas, cabinets & bathroom countertops
  • Electricity
  • Plumbing
  • Lighting
  • Etc.

Anticipating Your Changing Needs

If you plan on staying in your home for a while, there are a host of things you can do to anticipate your changing needs as you get older. Consider installing things that will make it easier to access storage spaces, such as drawers rather than cabinets, since they’re easier to use. Leaving ample space between bathroom fixtures will also make it easier to navigate as you get older.

Ample lighting is important, especially for those who don’t have 20/20 vision. Consider installing both mood lighting, as well as bright overhead lighting to ensure you can easily see what you’re doing while in the bathroom.

Choosing Materials

When it comes to bathroom renovations, the choices of materials are almost endless, depending on what you want to do. A full overhaul will often include replacing the bathtub, sink, shower, and toilet, as well as all the cabinetry and storage space. Some may even opt to replace their bathroom countertops and flooring, as well as their faucets and ventilation systems. Ultimately, the extent of your renovation will depend on your needs and budget.
