Renovating your bathroom can feel like an overwhelming task. There is so much to think about and consider, and since you’re investing a chunk of money into it, you want to get everything right. The most important thing you can do before you start anything is to make a plan. In this article, we’ll break down the crucial points and frequently asked questions like, “Can I customize my frameless shower doors?” and “What’s the best lighting to get?”
The VERY first thing you want to figure out is the style and feel you’re going for. All of your other decisions will be easier if you know the answer to this first question. Do you want it to be a bright and cheery bathroom, majestic and formal feeling, or spa-like and relaxing? A good place to go to for ideas is the rest of your home! Perhaps you want it to flow with the farmhouse theme you have going, or maybe you want it to be an escape from other areas in your home. Thinking about how you really want it to feel will make decisions about the details, like whether you should get frameless glass shower doors and what type of wallpaper would be best, a little bit easier to make.
A big part of how you want to renovate your bathroom depends on the answer to the question, “who will be using the bathroom?” If it’s a master bathroom, you may want to make plans for a jetted tub, a double shower, an easy to clean frameless glass shower panel, and his and hers vanities. If it’s a kid’s bathroom, on the other hand, think about fun color schemes, water-proof tile, and easy to reach towel hangers. The people using the bathroom affect almost every decision about how you want your bathroom to function.
Now that you have an idea of the look, feel, and function of your bathroom, you can start to design it. Color schemes and materials are the next things you need to specify. The type of shower or tub door you choose will have the next biggest impact on your space. Frameless shower doors are gaining popularity because they are easy to clean and maintain while looking seamless and modern. There is more than one type of frameless glass door, and we’ve listed the pros and cons of each below.
There are other framed door options as well, but the very best benefits of any type of frameless door in your bathroom include less risk of mildew and mold buildup around the frame, easier to clean and a more updated look compared to a traditional shower curtain. Additionally, with all the customization techniques available today, you can truly design your bathroom door exactly the way you want it.
Once you’ve selected your door, you can move on to tile and lighting design. Make sure to choose something both practical and aesthetically pleasing. For example, non-slip, waterproof tile that looks great and beautiful lighting that you can do your makeup in. For more information, you can research how to properly light a bathroom or ask a professional at your local home improvement store for advice on how to achieve the look you are going for.
All you have to do now is pick out the finishing touches. Hardware, mirrors, storage, and accessories are just as important as the first few steps in renovating your bathroom.
