3 things to keep in mind when remodeling a bathroom

The bathroom is one of the most-used spaces in any home. Depending on the size of your family, it can see action from yours frequently, between getting ready for school or work in the morning or relaxing with a nice warm bath at the end of a stressful day.

Take a look around your bathroom the next time you are in there - are there aspects that can be renovated and upgraded? If it has been a few years since its last upgrade, chances are the answer is a resounding yes. Hiring an Alexandria contractor is a good first step, but there is a lot you will have to keep in mind.

Here are a few tips for having your bathroom renovated:

  • Corner sink: If you have hired a contractor, you will want to make major changes. A great one to consider is having the sink placed in the corner of the room, as it will save major floor space, especially if the bathroom is on the smaller side. Shelving above it will also be a convenient way to access what you need.
  • Flooring: The material of the floor can be what separates a comfortable experience on those cold winter mornings and one that is more unpleasant. Rubber, linoleum or vinyl are all warmer materials that are worth investing in.
  • Good lighting: One of the most important aspects of the bathroom is the lighting, as it will be helping you as you get ready to head off for the day. It is likely worth thinking about having some additional softer lighting installed in the space, whether you want it in the ceiling or beside the mirror.
