When considering renovating a home it is important to think about bathrooms. Bathrooms and kitchens have traditionally been important features when it comes to real estate and should not be overlooked when remodeling a home. From green fixtures like energy efficient shower-heads and low flow toilets, to environmental flooring options like bamboo, updating a bathroom can become an environmental issue as well as a design issue.
When remodeling a bathroom it is important to consider what is current in trends and design, especially if selling your property is in the future. That said, here are some features that can make a great bathroom.
Light. Of course light is important in every room of a house, a bathroom should not be overlooked. From adding a skylight to a large picture window, the ability to shed natural light in a bathroom is key.
Cabinets. When choosing cabinet space or a vanity for your bathroom consider what kind of storage the room has or needs. For example, a powder room needs storage for what? Toilet paper, soap, hand towels. A pedestal sink can work in a powder room if you have a shelf or basket for toilet paper and a rod for hand towels. If a master bathroom has a linen closet in it then a simple, sleek vanity is possible if lots of storage isnâ€™t necessary in the vanity. If storage is need the choose a vanity with a lot of space.
Design. Is your home modern in feel? Classic? Choose fixtures, shelving, vanities and other items that fit in with the feel of your home. If your home has an old-time Victorian feel, donâ€™t add a trendy, modern vessel sink that doesnâ€™t fit the style of your home.
Bathrooms are fun to design and remodel. The best part of a new bathroom is a fresh, clean start, and considering the ease of cleaning it should be at the forefront of your decisions.
