5 Top Bathroom Remodel Tips and Advice

Bathrooms are the number one place that homeowners love to remodel, even more than kitchens. The space is smaller, making the job that little bit easier. Plus, this reduced space means reduced cost: less flooring and paint, fewer cabinets and countertop. Follow these tips to make your bathroom remodel more attractive while keeping the process smooth, efficient, and cost-effective.

Recess For Extra Room

Struggling with space in your bathroom? Recessed cabinets, toilet roll holders and shower shelves are a great way to introduce smart storage without compromising on space. Recessed storage is the perfect way to ensure everything has a place in your bathroom without introducing unsightly storage that takes up space.

Choose the Right Flooring

As beautiful as solid wooden floors are, they are not the best type of flooring material to use in your bathroom. Choose something that will withstand the test of time and daily bathroom use. At Bassetts we suggest ceramic and porcelain tiles and luxury vinyl planks.

Make the Tub Optional

Ask yourself how often you use the bath when deciding on dedicating a significant amount of space.  Real estate professionals would argue that a bathroom with a bathtub offers a greater appeal to prospective buyers than one with just a shower, however large baths are becoming less sought after for today’s buyers than it once was.

If you do decide to install a bathtub in your remodel, ensure there is adequate space for all those other bathroom essentials. Remember, bigger is not always better and today’s bathroom trends feature sleek design tubs that won’t break your budget. smaller baths take up considerably less floor space in the bathroom, allowing for more storage, larger basin and so much more!

Add More Opportunities to Hang Items

Wall hooks are one of the easiest ways to add surface area to a bathroom without needing countertop space. Hooks can be used for everything from bathrobes and towels. Place them on the back of a door, the side of a cabinet or an unused section of your wall to fully utilise your space.

Include More Mirrors in the Bathroom

Not only is a mirror an essential item in your bathroom, but placed correctly mirrors can be a great element to make a room feel bigger. Why not add a full-length mirror on a free wall or a mirrored effect towel rail or radiator to bounce light around the room.
