Is it time to upgrade your bathroom?

This simple remodel can add money to your house and help it sell. Designing a good bathroom does require planning, good information and careful thought. A bathroom is one of the hardest-working spaces in the home. If it’s not functional, everybody suffers. Follow these tips to help you create the perfect bathroom:

  • Functionality and Space- plan enough room for each fixture and function
  • Daily routine – think about daily use when making a floor plan
  • Color and Motif – mix soft with hard, soften with natural elements
  • Know your surfaces – learn about the inherent qualities and drawbacks of each material
  • Add drama with fixtures – think of plumbing fixtures as the jewelry of the bathroom
  • Be careful with lighting – consider appropriate lighting for sink and shower areas
  • Plan for daylight and privacy – getting natural light into your bathroom while maintaining privacy requires good planning
  • Consider your mechanical and electrical needs – don’t place shower valves on exterior walls as they are susceptible to freezing and harder to repair if they ever leak
  • Plan for future needs – yes, we do all grow older; make sure it’s still ideal when you’re less mobile, susceptible to falling and need more light for good vision
  • Consider cleaning and maintenance – make sure you know all the characteristics of each of your selections before finalizing your choices

Remember to provide good ventilation for odors and humidity. It’s also a good idea to design in the lighting from the beginning. Light for the vanity should come from two directions if possible. This will allow one light to fill in shadows cast by the other.

Here are Ten Top Tips to a Perfect Bathroom:

  • Use a fog-free mirror
  • Entertainment (radio, television)
  • Under floor heating
  • Large shower head
  • Good storage
  • Two basins
  • Taps in the middle of the bath for a spa feeling
  • Skylights if possible for more light and feeling of space
  • Walk in shower suggests more space
  • Good quality towels

It’s always a wise idea to hire a qualified, licensed plumber to fit your bathroom if you’re planning a big job. Remember to call Carter’s My Plumber at (317) 859-9999 to help with all your needs!
