Remodeling the primary bathroom in your home is one of the best things you can do for resale value. Homeowners spend a lot of time in the bathroom, so most would prefer a pleasing space.
If you are planning an upcoming bathroom remodeling project, then here are some tips to consider and speak with your remodeling contractor about:
Tip: Replace the Old Toilet with an Elongated, Extra-Tall Toilet
As long as your home has a second bathroom with a standard toilet for use by children, installing an elongated, extra-tall toilet is a must when remodeling. These taller and larger toilets are much more usable and comfortable for the elderly, people living with disabilities, and larger folks. Elongated toilet bowls are also easier to use when caregiving for others.
Tip: Change One Sink Vanities to Two Sinks
Thanks to an overabundance of home and garden remodeling programs on television, having two sinks in a primary bathroom has become the standard. When remodeling your primary bathroom, it is always advisable to install two sinks if there is enough room. This can be challenging in older or smaller homes, but when the space is available, this is a great way to use it. If you don't, when it comes time to sell, buyers will likely comment about the lack of a second sink.
Tip: Install Bright Lights
One absolute must when remodeling a primary bathroom is installing ample, bright lighting. If the space is too dark, you can't see well enough to do a good job. Personal care tasks such as plucking eyebrows, shaving, and applying makeup require a lot of light.
Most bathrooms have small windows, so you can't count on them bringing in enough light. The light must come from the lights you choose to install. In addition, bathrooms look larger and nicer when they are light and bright instead of dark caves.
Tip: Build a Niche, Soap Holder, and Shaving Bench in the Shower
No one likes hanging a shower basket caddy over their shower head for shampoo and conditioner. The caddies are bulky, don't want to stay in place, and look horrible.
A remodel is the perfect time to solve this annoying problem. When the shower tile surround is built, have the remodeling contractor make a niche to hold the shampoo and conditioner bottles.
In addition, have them build in a soap holder and shaving bench. Shaving benches are great for their intended purpose and for washing children and pets in the shower.
