Bathrooms have for centuries been neglected, since they are some of the smallest and most hidden rooms in the home. Their size and location were to promote the privacy and to meet the basic functions of the rooms. However, people are paying a lot of attention to the bathroom, since they are becoming one of the key selling points of the home. If you want to sell your home and it has a spacious and luxurious bathroom, then you are sure to get a better price. Here is what to have in mind when renovating the bathroom:
One of the major considerations of the bathroom ought to be comfort. People no longer want to spend just a few minutes and get on with other business, they want to spend time here and relax. The bathroom should be ideal for relaxation and you should go for decorations that will help to meet this need.
Carpets are not the way to go when it comes to bathroom renovations. Carpets are ideal in the living room and the bedroom, where there is no water falling on them. Carpets absorb water, and since the bathroom has a lot of that, with time the carpets will become a health hazard, since it will provide the ideal conditions for mould and vermin.
Anyone using the bathroom should be able to reach the washing area without any form of strain. In addition, the mirrors in the bathroom must make it easy for ‘her’ to apply make-up, and ideal for styling ‘her’ hair. Everything ranging from the cabinets, and any furniture in there should be within reach for you and beyond reach for the little ones who might interfere with the contents of the cabinets.
Going cheap is one of the worst renovations decisions you can ever make. Cheap products will look good but only for a short period. If you decide to go cheap, you will end up paying so much more in the future, since you are assured of repairing or even replacing the renovations within a short period.
There are people who prefer to have the bathroom and all its contents to be white; this is a very attractive way to go about it. White gives an impression of cleanliness, and if there is a section that is not clean, you are sure to notice it. Other colors can be chosen but they should go along with the design of the home.
