Whether you’re starting to plan your bathroom remodeling or you’ve been thinking about it for the last few months, there are a few things you need to keep in mind before it’s time to do it.
Read on the following checklist to discover the keys to optimizing your bathroom remodeling and ensure great results!
The Ultimate Bathroom Remodel Checklist You Needed!
Upgrading your pipes and drains to 2-inch larger ones practically costs the same as unclogging your old pipes, and unless your framing doesn’t allow for it, you should also consider increasing the drain in your shower to 2 inches.
Something else to keep in mind is that if you live in regions where temperatures drop below freezing during the winter, it’s important that your water supply lines don’t get routed through an exterior wall.
Recessed light fixtures throughout your ceiling are an excellent and practical way to brighten up the room. Include one (or two) in your shower with the proper shower trim.
Also, installing a dimmer switch can help you adjust the mood in your bathroom.
3. Wall-hung toilets
These fixtures have grown in popularity lately and for a good reason. They no longer break the bank, and they also save space since the tank is hidden behind the wall.
4. A window in the shower
Done properly, this is a great and different feature to add up to your bathroom.
Be careful about the materials you choose considering the window will be at the shower where water and visibility for people outside are important things to keep in mind.
5. Shower floors
Larger tiles are typically harder to slope properly, and unless they’re textured, they’ll be slippier because the grout lines are further apart.
Smaller tiles, whether textured or not, offer more traction and are typically the norm for shower floors — though the options are nearly limitless.
