Bathroom Renovation Ideas
While the summer is the ideal time to renovate the exterior of your home, when autumn hits, those looking for a remodeling project are forced to turn inward, as the colder weather often prohibits any work that needs to be done on the outside of the house.
Whether you’re looking to work on the plumbing, or the countertops or the flooring, there’s always something you can work on to make your bathroom more inviting.
So, if you’re constantly looking for something to work on in your house, now is a great time to get started on those bathroom renovations you’ve been planning.
Below is a list of bathroom renovations you’ll want to get started on immediately.
Installing a Rain Shower
If you’re tall, chances are you’ve encountered a shower that doesn’t exactly work when you’re trying to wash your hair (there’s nothing more frustrating than trying to wash your hair with one hand, and hold the showerhead with the other one).
However, if that shower is in your own home, it might be time for an upgrade. A rain shower is a great option, because the chances are, unless your head literally hits your ceiling, you won’t be too tall for it.
However, it can be a tricky setup, as it requires a water supply in the ceiling. When installing a new bathroom it’s pretty simple, but when you’re remodeling an existing one it becomes trickier—however, it’s no impossible.
His and Her Sinks
For any married couples who sharing a bathroom, it can be difficult to get access to the sink, especially in the morning when both people are getting ready for work—sometimes a standoff ensues during which you both star setting alarms slightly earlier than the other person so you can rush to the bathroom first and get ready for work.
If you’re tired of dealing with the chaos of fighting for the sink (and you’d like to be able to sleep an extra few minutes instead of getting up early to fight for the sink), you can try your hand at installing his and her sinks.
While it won’t be the easiest DIY project—you’ll have to do some cutting and some plumbing—it’s not impossible, and you can do it yourself without hiring a contractor.
Depending on the type of countertop and plumbing you’re dealing with will determine how big of a task it will be.
Retile the Floors
Are you one of the few people who still has laminate floors on their bathroom? Are you tired of this fact and yearning to join the tile floored club?
Retiling your bathroom floor isn’t as big of a project as you may at first think. However, it will still be a big undertaking, as it will require a significant amount of measuring, and cutting to ensure everything ends up fitting properly.
Additionally, tiling isn’t the cheapest material out there, so you’ll have to be prepared to open the checkbook a little bit in order to ensure you’ll be able to finish the job.
