Everything You Should Add in a Bathroom Remodel
Remodeling your bathroom is one of the best ways to revamp your space and add value to your home. Although the bathroom is typically the smallest room in the house, its impact on the overall feel of a home is undeniable. A luxury home simply isn’t complete without a luxury bathroom, and it’s often a great place to start if you’re planning on remodeling your entire house over time.
Updating, redesigning, and/or reconfiguring your bathroom can breathe new life into your space and add significant value to your home. Continue reading to learn about the features you should consider including in any bathroom remodel.
Plenty of Storage
Because people tend to focus on the aesthetics of their new space, storage is often overlooked during bathroom remodels. But it’s one of the most important things to consider when designing the bathroom of your dreams.
The last thing you want to do is design a gorgeous space with beautiful granite or marble countertops only to cover them up with bathroom products and clutter. Having plenty of built in drawers, custom bathroom cabinets, and even linen closets inside or just outside the room is essential for keeping your beautiful new space clean and uncluttered.
Installing a heat system beneath your bathroom floor – especially if you choose sleek, yet notoriously cold flooring materials like stone or ceramic tile – adds instant luxury to your space. Getting up on chilly winter mornings is much more enjoyable when you have a warm bathroom floor to stand on while you get ready for the day.
Heated bathroom floors don’t just keep your feet warm, though. They actually heat the entire bathroom from the ground up, and are increasingly being used in other areas of the home due to how quiet, low maintenance, and energy efficient they are.
A Shower Window
Bathrooms, and especially showers, are exposed to a lot of moisture and humidity. While a good bathroom fan can help, the natural ventilation a window or skylight provides can make all the difference when it comes to combating mold and mildew.
Not only does a shower window help with ventilation – it also adds natural light, which can make the space feel bigger and more welcoming. Just make sure to use frosted glass and strategic placement of the window to ensure sufficient privacy.
Incorporating custom bathroom tiling into your remodel, whether it’s in the shower or on the floor, is a great way to take your project to the next level. Custom tiling allows you to express your own personal design tastes and truly make your new bathroom your own.
Custom tiling can also add value to your home, since unique design features are often a selling point for potential homebuyers. Just make sure you choose your tile size, shape, and colors carefully and consider how they will impact the overall feel and aesthetic of your new space.
A Double Vanity
Double vanities offer a variety of benefits, including added convenience and flexibility. Having two sinks and two mirrors (or one large mirror) makes sharing a bathroom much simpler for couples, since each person has their own space to work with.
Though traditionally found in master bathrooms, double vanities can be useful in other bathrooms as well, especially in households with lots of family members. Just keep in mind that adding a second sink may mean giving up valuable counter space, so it’s important to make sure you have enough space to make a double vanity worth it.
