Things to consider while renovating your bathroom
Planning bathroom renovations in Winnipeg? Make sure you take the time to consider your own unique needs, pick the right materials, and build a bathroom that will look great and function perfectly for years to come. Here are a few things you should consider when you’re planning your bathroom renovation.
The biggest changes to consider while planning your bathroom renovation
First, you need to think about the changes you want to make. You can change or replace all of these items for a full renovation – or just focus on a few, like bathroom fixtures, bathroom lighting, or flooring if you’re doing a smaller-scale project.
Layout changes while renovating your bathroom
Reconfiguring bathroom layouts is expensive but can be worth it. For example, you may want to move your vanity and your tub to provide your bathroom with more space and replace your tub with a new shower enclosure.
Cabinetry & countertops
Replacing bathroom cabinets is a great way to add more storage and refresh the look of your bathroom. Make sure to consider your storage needs both now and in the future to pick the right layout and products.
Replacing bathroom lighting is a great option if you are on a budget. New light fixtures can brighten the room and make it feel more spacious – this is particularly important for bathrooms with no or small windows.
Tile and flooring
A new tile floor can dramatically change how your bathroom looks. Or, if you’re on a budget, a shower insert or other flooring materials can be suggested for your renovation project.
Common upgrades for bathroom vanities include double sink vanities for master baths or replacing vanities with pedestal sinks in smaller bathrooms for more space. Think about your own unique needs when choosing a vanity.
Replacing bathroom fixtures like bathtub taps, sink faucets and knobs, showerheads, and other such fixtures can help you completely transform the look of your bathroom for a relatively low price.
Do you want a towel warmer? In-floor heating? Under-cabinet lighting? A make-up station? Recessed, in-wall storage? The list can go on! These kinds of special features can make your bathroom a more pleasant place and ensure you enjoy your daily routine to its fullest.
Think about family size and bathroom use when planning
One of the most important things you can think about when renovating a bathroom is the current – and future – size of your family, and your unique needs.
For example, if you have a young child and plan on having more children, you may want a bathtub to help bathe them as they grow, rather than a shower enclosure.
Or, if you are the parent to several grown teens, you may need to build in more storage space for their various bathroom and hair care products. Make sure to think about the size of your family and how you use the bathroom before building your renovation plan.
