Remodeling your bathroom is an exciting undertaking that has the potential to significantly improve your home???s beauty and comfort. To ensure a stress-free and successful project, take some time to carefully consider what you want to achieve with this remodel before you begin.
In today???s post, Highland Design + Build, formerly known as CASE Design/Remodeling, your local home interior remodeling expert, shares three key questions to ask yourself before beginning the project:
What Are My Needs?
What are your biggest priorities? Are you looking to increase storage space in the bathroom, to make the space more accessible for aging family members, or do you want to give the room a complete aesthetic makeover? Figure out what???s most important to you, and go from there; this will help you avoid wasting money on upgrades you don???t really need.
What Will the Bathroom???s Main Function Be?
Do you want your bathroom to be an efficient space where you can quickly get ready in the morning, or a soothing oasis where you can take long, luxurious soaks in the tub???or both? Is this a master bathroom renovation or a guest bathroom?
To help you determine your bathroom???s main function, consider the age of the people in your family. If the bathroom will be used primarily by young children, you may want to invest in multi-layered countertops, while seniors will appreciate the addition of grab bars and wider doorways. Talk to us about your plans for bathroom remodeling and we???ll provide you with expert solutions to help make your bathroom more comfortable and functional for whomever is using it.
Do I Need More Ventilation?
Proper ventilation is the most effective way to prevent mold and mildew growth in the bathroom. For bathrooms a hundred square feet or smaller, you need to install a fan with at least one CFM per square foot. In addition to mold and mildew prevention, this ventilation system prevents the bathroom mirror from fogging up during hot showers.
