Crockett Home Improvement

Remodeling your bathroom is a big task but can end with big rewards. Like any remodeling job, you have to ask yourself at the outset what it is that you are looking for with this refurbishment. Are you looking to gain more space or perhaps more light — and how much work are you willing to put up with? These are just a few sample questions, but in this article, we’re going to look at the most important things that you should be asking yourself when starting a bathroom remodeling job.

How much space do you have to work with?

This is probably the easiest question to ask. You simply need to take a tape measure, find out the measurements and then match the features you want to your space. At this point, we recommend that you take a pen, ruler, and paper and start sketching up approximations of where you want things to go. Get a feel for the possibilities. Start thinking in terms of “If I get this sink, I’ll have room for this shower, but not that toilet” for example. Think about the windows and the light and how they factor into your use of space. These are the special considerations that you should take into account when thinking about your bathroom remodel.

How much storage do you need?

This is another important question because storage space ultimately is space that could be used for other features. The reason it’s important to think about at this stage is that many people forget to factor this into their bathroom remodel ideas and end up with a beautiful, but perhaps unergonomic bathroom. The solution is to plan in advance — pay attention to your current bathing habits, what are the inconveniences that you sense now in terms of storage and how can you allay them with your refurbishment.

Do you want a shower, tub, or both?

These three options of course depend on the amount of space that you have in your bathroom. Seeing as these will be the largest objects in your bathroom it’s important that you get this right since all of the other fixtures will exist in relation. Having a tub with a hose nozzle for a shower can be a great solution for people with less space, but if you have the room and resources, it’s worth considering having both installed as separate units.

What features are most important to you?

Specific, smaller features should be one of the last questions that you ask but it’s an important consideration nonetheless. Shelving, tiling, perhaps even a skylight — these are all potential additions that can change your bathroom from a musty old room, into a pleasant place to bathe and wash. Having discussions with your contractor can provide you with bathroom ideas and solutions that perhaps you hadn’t thought of before. Our advice is to take advantage of the wisdom of your workman and discover what features you may never have even thought of.
