Preparing for a Bathroom Renovation

In my last two blogs, I suggested how you can start planning a kitchen renovation or a new home office while you’re self-isolating, or now being “safer-at-home.” This month, I will focus on bathrooms:

FLOORING & LAYOUT

Denver Bathroom Layout

  • Are you happy with your bathroom’s current layout, or are you in need of a full renovation (including demolishing)?
  • Do you want an additional source of natural light (if possible) in your updated bathroom?
  • Are you satisfied with the flooring in your bathroom? Or, would you prefer a different look, feel, or practicality?

The answers to the above questions will give you a good understanding of the basic layout and groundwork for your bathroom renovation.

Take a look at this video where I explain the process of designing a master bathroom:

Shower Benches Deisgn

  • Do you want a stand-alone tub and a walk-in shower in your bathroom? Or, do you prefer a shower-only or a shower/tub combo?
  • What kind of showerhead does your current bathroom have, and are you happy with it? Would you like to upgrade to a showerhead with multiple spray options, or one that comes with adjustable height? Do you prefer a narrow spray from the wall or a wider rainfall spray from above?
  • In the shower, do you want to add a bench or a bath stool?

The shower and tub are the most important features of your bathroom, so take time to think about these decisions and choose options that will make your bathing experience functional and fun.

VANITIES, SINKS, & TOILETS

Bathroom Pattern Renovation

Toilet locations impact traffic patterns

  • Are you happy with a single sink vanity, or do you prefer to have a couple’s double sink vanity in your master bathroom?
  • Have you given thought to what kind of sink(s) you want in your bathroom? Popular styles include pedestal, wall-mounted, vessel, etc.
  • Do you want to upgrade your standard toilet to one with a heated seat, water spray, and drying vacuum for year-round comfortable and cleanliness?

Your answers to these questions will determine how products are sourced to meet your needs.

STORAGE

  • Are you happy with how much storage you have in your bathroom?
  • Would a different style of storage better fit your needs?
