Things to Consider Before Remodeling a Bathroom

If you’ve already made the decision to remodel, then good for you! Remodeling your Erie CO bathroom can be exciting, scary and nerve-wracking at the same time. A lot of people find the idea of undertaking a bathroom remodel a bit intimidating, but it’s all worth it in the end. Not only will it help boost the value of your Erie CO home, it will also go a long way in improving your satisfaction in your home.

Here are 4 things to consider before remodeling a bathroom.

Timeframe

A lot of people think that it will only take a few days to remodel a small bathroom. Yes, you’ll only be working on a limited amount of space, but please keep in mind that the more things you want to change, the longer it would take to complete the renovation.

If you only have one or two bathrooms in your Erie CO home, then you need to make certain adjustments regarding your shower routine.

Know your budget

Before you start looking at tiles, fixtures, and others, you first need to determine how much can spend for this project. This will help guide you as you make decisions about what to include in the remodel.

Choose flooring wisely

Most people assume that they can install any type of flooring material. But choosing flooring for the bathroom is far different than choosing flooring for other rooms in your home. Given that the bathroom is prone to moisture and is always wet, you want flooring that is water resistant and durable. We also recommend choosing a flooring material that is slip-resistant. This is important so as to avoid slip and fall accidents in the bathroom.

Lighting

Proper lighting is crucial to how good your bathroom looks, as well as how well it functions. It doesn’t matter if you have a small bathroom. If your bathroom has proper lighting, it will feel bright and comfortable.

For good lighting, your bathroom needs 4 types of light – task light, accent light, ambient light and decorative light.
