Top 3 Things to Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom


How to Plan Your Bathroom Remodel 

Bathroom remodeling can be an exciting process, but it also comes with its own unique set of challenges – especially when it comes to your design scheme. Discover the top 3 things to consider when you’re planning your next bathroom remodel in Cheltenham with Reliable Plumbing.

1. Who will be using the bathroom?

Of course, you’ll be using your bathroom, but you should consider who else may be in the space after your remodel. If you only have one bathroom, the other members of your household will be needing it, as well as any guests you may entertain. That could mean you need a functional layout that accommodates more than one person at a time. Live alone? You’ll have more freedom to take up floor real estate with that clawfoot bathtub you’ve been eyeing at the antique store. Other users to consider include in-laws, children, and friends or relatives with disabilities. 

2. How long will you be living in your home?

It’s tempting to design your bathroom for your current needs, but it may be beneficial to estimate how long you’ll be living in your current home. As you age, you’ll need your space to become more accessible, making features like extra grab rails a good idea. You may also wish to consider a tub without a curb, or a larger floor plan for mobility devices. If you’re not planning on aging into your space, or you don’t anticipate an elderly person needing to use your bathroom, you may not have to worry about these additions. 

3. What is your bathroom remodeling budget?

In addition to your design preferences, you’ll also need to take your budget into account. The amount of money you plan to spend will have a direct impact on your new bathroom’s finishes, features, and appliances. Countertop materials like marble and pure granite tend to be more expensive, while laminate and engineered stone are on the lower end of the financial spectrum. 

Be sure to keep the complexity of your remodel in mind as well. The more work your project takes, the more costly it will be. Intricate, detailed tilework in your shower will run much higher than a classic subway tile design. If you’re on a limited budget, you can choose one or two special features to spend more money on and keep the rest of your furnishings on the affordable side.
