Your family and your life are not exactly like anybody else’s. When it’s time to remodel your bathroom, why should you settle for something that’s isn’t perfect for you? Have your remodel done in a way that works best for your family’s needs.
Bathrooms are most often the smallest room in the house, so being able to squeeze in even a little extra storage is valuable in the space.
- Forget about builder-grade cabinets from big-box stores. Instead, invest in good-quality custom cabinetry. A great place to start is visiting ChrisCustomCarpentry.com.
- Think about what kinds of things you will be storing and how much cabinetry you will need. Do you have a large family that uses a lot of towels and washcloths? Do you buy things like soap and shampoo in bulk and need a place for them?
Since you are working with a limited amount of space, consider your options when designing the layout out your new bathroom.
- If you have small children, a single-stall shower might not make as much sense as a bathtub-shower combination. Consider who will be using this bathroom and what its primary use will be. (Getting ready in the morning, a spare bathroom for guests, etc).
- Do you have enough room to install two sinks on the counter? Not only are double sinks handy for a busy family, but they are good for resale value too.
Pick a floor covering that is durable enough to withstand your busy life, but one that is also attractive and will age well.
- If the word laminate makes you cringe, retrain your brain. Laminate is made with much better quality than it used to be and is ideal if you’re on a budget.
- Tile is another good option for bathrooms. It is heavy-duty, has a wide variety to choose from and is easy to keep clean.
Your remodel should fit your life, not the other way around. Do what makes the most sense in your situation to make the bathroom uniquely yours.
