If you’re thinking of a bathroom remodel for your home, there are a number of factors to consider. Bathroom remodeling projects can add major value to the home, and it’s best to have professionals working with you who can help you identify the most important areas to prioritize.
At Falk Construction Inc., we’re the experts you need. We’ve assisted with many bathroom remodels over the years, and we know exactly how to assist you in getting the perfect bathroom space. We’ve also seen examples of the bathroom remodeling process gone wrong – here are some tips to avoid major mistakes when remodeling your bathroom.
Chances are, you store more items in the bathroom than you may have previously considered. We’re not just talking about smaller items like medicine bottles or cologne containers – also bulkier items like towels, sheets, cleaning bottles and other similar materials.
Most homeowners use at least some bathroom space for these items, and you want this ability without sacrificing any of your aesthetic appeal. We’ll work with you from the start to ensure there’s enough storage space in the bathroom after the remodel.
The remodeling world is full of trends, just like any other area where design is heavily involved. Our Falk Construction remodeling pros are always abreast of these trends, and we’re happy to style your bathroom after one of the latest, but we also offer a word of caution here: Don’t get too wrapped up in chasing the trends. Too much focus on a popular design might detract from the practical elements of the bathroom, leaving you with a space that becomes frustrating once the initial excitement of your trendy design wears off.
Lighting and Ventilation
Some homeowners get a bit of tunnel vision during the bathroom remodeling process, focusing primarily on the “shiny” aspects of the remodel: Fixtures like plumbing, cabinets, floors and sinks.
These are all important choices but be sure not to overlook the less shiny considerations like the ventilation of the room. Without proper ventilation and air flow, moisture can build up and cause mildew and mold. In addition, ensure all areas of the bathroom have proper lighting, both for safety and convenience.
We all want a huge shower space, but don’t prioritize this at the expense of the shower entry itself. In particular, consider the way the shower door opens and closes. Will it be easy for people to get in and out of it, or will they have to tip-toe around the door every time because you wanted to make the shower a few feet larger? Rather than worrying about tripping or knocking things over, sacrifice that extra few inches and make shower entry more convenient.
