Fun Facts to Know About Remodeling Your Bathroom

Renovating a bathroom is one of the more popular home improvement projects. One reason for this is that most bathrooms are small, so remodeling them doesn’t have to break the bank. Bathrooms have also evolved from being merely utilitarian to becoming showcases in the home. Here are some interesting things to know about a bathroom remodel.

Lighting Is Hugely Important

Though lots of bathrooms have windows, the windows tend to be smallish. Many bathrooms get no natural light at all. Because of this, the way you and your remodeling contractor design the lighting in the bathroom is crucial to make the space bright, cheerful and welcoming as opposed to gloomy and oppressive. You’ll need to take into account the size of the bathroom, its materials and how much or how little they reflect light, the color temperature of light bulbs, and the placement of mirrors, among other factors.

Grout Matters More Than You Might Think

No one thinks of grout while they’re using a bathroom, but grout can enhance your new bathroom or make it resemble a lavatory in a lockup. You’ll need to determine whether you want visitors to your bathroom to notice the grout in a good way or whether it should be all but invisible. There are also different types of grout to consider, depending on whether it’s going in a place that’s mostly dry or one where it will frequently get wet, such as a shower stall.

You Can Make a Tiny Bathroom Feel Much Larger

If your bathroom is especially small, you can make it feel bigger than it is. You can get rid of a space-hogging vanity and replace it with an elegant porcelain pedestal sink. You can paint the walls and ceilings bright lemon yellow, which actually makes a room seem larger and brighter than a shade of white. Another way to make a small bathroom look bigger is to install long and narrow elements on the walls. This can include beadboard, subway tile that’s longer than it is wide, and even narrow mirrors.

You Need an Attractive Focal Point

The first thing many people see when they enter a bathroom is the toilet bowl. Though absolutely needful, the toilet bowl shouldn’t be the focal point in a bathroom. Introduce an eye-catching focal point like a stylish mirror over a vanity, a glass-enclosed walk-in shower with a beautiful tile surround, or a unique clawfoot bathtub.
