Bathroom renovations are always a popular project to add value to your home while refreshing its appearance and functionality. This is a great time to make changes and improvements that contribute to a more enjoyable space.
Here are some ideas that you might want to consider for your bathroom renovation:
Hidden Tank/ Low Flow Toilet
Toilets with a tank hidden in the wall can be a great option if you are trying to maximize space in a smaller bathroom. They also have a very sleek look that pairs well with modern design. Just beware of the fact that maintenance and repairs can be difficult due to a lack of easy access.
A low-flow toilet is another excellent option, saving you water with every flush.
Another way to reduce water usage is to install a low-flow showerhead. In some households, they can save hundreds or even thousands of litres of water each year. In the past, they sometimes resulted in low water pressure, but today’s models can be hard to distinguish from regular showerheads and are comparable in price.
Install a 2-Inch Drainpipe
While not exactly a glamorous change to your bathroom, a 2-inch drainpipe can make a significant difference in functionality. This is because most bathroom plumbing includes PVC pipe that is 1.5 inches, or even 1.25 inches. This can result in clogged drains, particularly for larger families using the same shower or bath.
While a 2-inch drain costs almost the same as a standard pipe, you will surely notice the difference in performance after your bathroom renovations.
Include a Window in the Shower
Humidity is a common problem in bathrooms. Even with a bathroom fan, taking long, hot showers can result in the growth of mould and mildew. The best way to provide the necessary ventilation is with a window.
Even having the window open a crack during or after your shower will prove beneficial and having a source of natural light reduces the need for electricity during the day.
If part of your remodel includes replacing the floor, heated flooring might be worth considering. Less expensive to install than you might think, they are another way to add value to your home, but more than that, they can greatly increase your comfort, especially if you live in a cold climate. They heat small spaces more efficiently, and you need only run them for a short time to have them retain heat.
Most homeowners are always happy to include extra storage space. A bathroom remodel is a good opportunity to move some of your bathroom items out of the hallway closet and into the bathroom where they belong.
Find an Appropriate-Sized Tub
Some people love to relax in the bathtub by candlelight, with soft music playing. Others seldom use their tub, opting for a quick shower instead.
Depending on your personal preferences, here is your chance to include a large soaker tub, a space-saving sitting tub, or even no tub at all, giving you a more open space or a larger shower.
