Bathrooms can play a lot of different roles for a lot of different people. Whether it’s your favorite place to take a soak after a long day, play rubber ducky with the kids in the bathtub before bedtime, or start your morning off right with a shower and a shave, everybody needs a space they’re comfortable in. We all have to spend time in the bathroom each day whether we want to or not, so making it as pleasant an experience as possible can have a very positive mental effect. Additionally, if you’re thinking of moving soon, remodeling your bathroom can significantly raise the resell value of your home.
When considering a bathroom remodel there are some important factors to think about. If you’re planning on staying in your home permanently, then you have much more freedom to more or less do whatever will make you happiest in the long run. But if there’s a possibility that you may be moving at some point in the future, be sure to think about what type of people will most likely be moving into the house after you and tailor your remodel to suit a wide variety of needs, rather than just your own, immediate personal desires. For example, if you live in a very family-friendly residential area, make sure there is at least one bathroom in the house that has a large bathtub and a lot of cabinet space. People with children will want a comfortable space to bathe their children or family pet, and will need a lot of room for toys, towels, and other supplies.
There are lots of great resources on the internet and in magazines that can help you start thinking about your remodel and give you some ideas about what style you’d like to go for. HGTV is a great site that has a ton of bathroom remodeling articles, pictures, and tips. So if you’re having trouble getting started, it’s a great site to check out.
