Are you finding your bathroom lacking that extra something and want to renovate it? If so, there are a few things that you might want to consider. Bathrooms are typically one of the first things on people’s renovation lists, but they can also be a project that is overlooked. If you’re thinking about renovating your bathroom soon or in the future, read this post to find out seven ways you can take your renovation to the next level!
1. Replace Old Showerhead
Many people don’t think about the importance of their showerhead, but it’s an essential part of maintaining your health. The water coming out of a standard showerhead is not filtered and can contain traces of heavy metals such as lead and other contaminants that are bad for your skin and hair. Replacing your old showerhead with one that filters the water will help you maintain healthier skin and minimize scum buildup in your shower.
2. Add a Glass Shower Door
Though it may seem like a small change, a glass shower door is a great way to add value and style to your bathroom renovation. They are easy to install, come in many finishes, and offer the best of both worlds: privacy and an open feel! Additionally, glass shower doors also give your bathroom a sleek look without sacrificing any light that comes through.
3. Upgrade Shower Floor
There are plenty of benefits to giving your shower floor a well-deserved upgrade. There are a variety of bathroom floor tiles to choose from for your project. Small, textured tiles can make your bathroom easier to clean after use as they tend to be mold-, humidity-, and stain-resistant. After you’re done enjoying this upgrade, you’ll be happy to learn that new shower floor tiles can also increase the value of your home if and when you’re ready to sell.
4. Install a Window
With your bathroom being one of the most used rooms in your home, wouldn’t it be nice to let in as much natural light as possible to brighten it up? Adding natural light can be done by simply installing a window. This addition will let in a reasonable amount of natural sunlight, making your bathroom appear more spacious.
5. Switch to LED Lighting
Did you know that LED lights use up to 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs? If you’re planning on remodeling your bathroom or simply looking for a way to make it more eco-friendly, installing LED lighting is one of the best things you can do. Not only will this save money on your energy bills, but it also helps reduce our carbon footprint, saves natural resources, and lasts longer — all while providing brilliant bright lighting.
6. Optimize for Storage
Another part of bathroom renovations that can be overlooked is accounting for storage! We’re talking cabinets, drawers, and shelves to fit all your bathroom necessities effectively. Ample storage will prevent unsightly cluttering and minimize hazards that could result from that clutter.
7. Replace Your Tub with a Stand-In Shower
When most people think of a bathroom, they may envision a tub as being an inherent part of it, but that doesn’t have to be the case for your bathroom. If baths aren’t really your thing and you don’t anticipate getting much use out of one, you can opt to go without one. If you have more than one bathroom in your home and the other already has a tub, there’s not much need to have another. A stand-in shower can be just as luxurious while making it less likely to cause a watery mess the way traditional bathtubs do.
