How to plan your bathroom renovation project

Bathrooms are among the smallest rooms in your house, but that doesn’t mean they’re easy to remodel. Bathrooms are the second most complex room in a house to renovate after kitchens.

That said, thinking about what you really want from your new bathroom project takes some time and effort, but considering how long between customizations can be (10-20 years+), you may as well plan your project out effectively!

There is no one-size-fits all approach when it comes to bathroom renovations as there’s so many factors at play. Below, you will find some of those factors to consider.

Things to consider for your bathroom reno project

Layout

With the right understanding of your bathroom needs, you can create an efficient layout. You should also plan out the dimensions and necessary fixtures to make up your bathroom space.

Fixtures & Plumbing

Every bathroom will have a toilet and sink, which are two of the most basic fixtures in a powder room. Most bathrooms also have walk-in showers, but not all- some only contain a bathtub. Four piece bathrooms consist of both tubs and walk-in showers. Faucets and shower-heads are other fixtures to consider.

Cabinets & Storage

Planning cabinets and shelving in a small, irregularly shaped room like the bathroom can be difficult. They must be functional and accommodate your belongings while keeping everything easily accessible; they need to fit into available space while maximizing it.

Countertops

Vanity tops must be durable and capable of withstanding water, soap and cosmetics while being an ample work surface. They also have to serve as a focal point in the room where it meets walls that are made of tile or wood cabinets below.

Floors

Not only does bathroom flooring need to be attractive, it also needs to be waterproof. This means that the first priority when picking your floor should always focus on how well it is able to repel water.

Lighting

With all the different types of lighting you can use in a bathroom, it's tough to make sure it all feels stylish and cohesive. You'll need lights for the vanity area, shower and tubs so they all look great, but always keep your overall design in mind!

Painting

Bathroom walls are often exposed to water and soap, which can lead to mildew. The best way to avoid paint problems is by using a bathroom-specific paint or one that is formulated for high humidity.

Ventilation

With all of the potential issues that come with bathroom humidity, like mold and mildew, a funky smell, chipping paint or wallpaper peeling off easily; proper bathroom ventilation is crucial to keep these issues in check.
