Things To Know In Doing Bathroom Renovations

By Amy Long

Moving on a new house sometimes require you to update the current bathroom. Or you just want to put a breath of fresh air to the one you have right now and add items that you like that requires remodeling the room a bit. Maybe there are some things that are not functioning anymore and needs repair or replacing.

Whatever the reason may be, you have to think of a few important things before starting this project. There are things to consider and prepare as well so you can do it smoothly and finish it as soon as possible. And if you lack skills or confidence in doing it yourself, there are companies that do bathroom renovations in Manitoba that can help you with it.

Calculate the potential cost of the project and determine your budget. You can save some money by being creative so that you could use it on other much needed items instead. Then you can also look for options on which to buy so you could select which is cheaper but quality products.

You must also have a list of must haves and optional items so you can fit the things you need first within the budget and if there are extra money remaining that can be spent, then you can also check the optional items that you can buy. Before starting your project, make sure to buy all the items and fixtures you will put and have them on hand first.

Make a small bathroom look spacious by using all the available room wisely. Have a plan on where to store your toiletries and where all items will be located to avoid in making the room look messy. Using a recessed shelf to store shampoos, soaps, toothpastes and other products will help maximize the space available.

Have proper and various sources of lights and illumination. This can be achieved through natural light provided by a window or by using light bulbs. Applying make up or shaving facial hair will be easier and faster if enough illumination is provided and available. Different levels of intensity of the lights will give you different ambiance depending on what you want.

Having the room ventilated properly is very important as well. It helps in keeping the bathroom dry and in removing the moisture that causes mildew and molds. A fan that vents towards the outside of the house can be used and a window as well.

Sometimes a new paint job is all you need to make your bathroom look new. Do not be afraid to experiment on what colors you will primarily paint it but if you have a small bathroom, it is advisable to use a neutral color like white. Putting accents will make the area appealing as well. Use accessories and items such as rugs, towels, shower curtains and other accessories which gives a fresh new look every time they are replaced.

When hiring professionals to do the work for you, make sure to ask for their references and sample work. If possible, ask opinions from people who previously hired them. Do not forget to include the labor cost in the budget as well.
