Here are some tips to keep in mind when planning a new bathroom or remodeling a bathroom:
This may seem like a pretty obvious thing to bear in mind, but when we talk about location, we aren?t just talking about close proximity to rooms ? we are also talking about close proximity to your water pipes, especially the hot water pipes. The closer you can get to established plumbing the less money you?ll have to spend on the plumbing for your new bathroom.
Size of the Room
Today?s trends for bathrooms have some pretty great ? but also fairly large ? fixtures. For instance, if you want a soaking tub and a shower in your bathroom, it?s imperative that you have the room for it. We suggest measuring the room as well as getting the measurements of the fixtures you would like, and then seeing if they will actually fit. Another item to pay attention to is which way your bathroom door swings. You don?t want to put a fixture behind a door, which can make it difficult for the door to open and close.
How Many People Are Using the Bathroom?
The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in your home; as such, you want to make sure it can handle the needs of all the occupants in your home. Things to think about are whether or not you need a double sink, does the bathroom need to be child-friendly, etc.
