Reading about a one-day bath remodel or articles about dream bathroom upgrades can certainly inspire homeowners to renovate their own bathrooms. The pictures you see in remodeling magazines are designed to entice you to consider certain colors, designs, or finishes for your own project. However, you don’t have to copy them to the letter if you want to have a successful bathroom remodel.
While it’s good to draw inspiration from these model bathrooms, it’s even more important to see the aspects that make them successful. Palettes, tiles, and styles can differ from one home to another, but techniques, concepts, and ideas are pretty much the same across the board. Here are a few tips from our experts at South Shore Dream Bath on how to plan for a successful bathroom remodel.
While the bathrooms you see may have different shower enclosures, bathtubs, or toilet areas, they all adhere to the most important hallmark of bathroom design: privacy. Take careful consideration when deciding on placement. For example, you don’t want to put the toilet in a place where it’s the first thing you see when you open the door. Instead, hide it behind a discreet corner for a little privacy.
Another good hallmark of bathroom design is ample storage. There’s nothing more frustrating than having dozens of products strewn across your counter space with no shelf or storage to put them in. Talk to your bathroom contractor about adding extra drawers, cabinets, and organizational solutions for all your linens, items, and other bathroom essentials.
Focusing on bathroom safety upgrades is also an important aspect of a successful remodel. Consider who the final user of your bathroom will be? Are there elderly people or people with mobility issues who will also use the space? Will there be children or teenagers who will share this bathroom? Safety features should always be tailored to the needs of the user.
