If you’re considering bathroom remodeling in Charleston, you’ve got a lot of things to think about, and organizing your thoughts and priorities can be tough — especially if you’ve got a lot of opinions coming from various members of your family. To aid you in creating a priorities list for key areas to focus on in your bathroom remodel, make sure to consider the following:
- Toilets, Bidets, Sinks, and Tubs
First thing’s first: what kind of bathroom fixtures will you choose? Most people want at least their toilet and bidet to match, and it’s generally considered a given that these two fixtures and the sink and tub or shower will match as well. To help you choose a style, flip through home magazines or go online and save pictures of what attracts you.
- Flooring and Vanity Tops
Although wood and sometimes carpet can do well in bathrooms, most of the time tile is the way to go. There are so many materials, glazes, colors, sizes, and shapes to choose from that it shouldn’t be too difficult to choose something that catches your eye.
- Walls and Molding
The walls in your bathroom won’t usually be a focal point as they are in the rest of your home. For many homeowners, a decent paint job in a coordinating color is best. But you might also consider tiling, paneling, or certain types of bathroom-friendly wallpaper.
- Lighting and Fans
Lighting in your bathroom is key. It’s often where you’ll be getting ready for work and events, so you’ll want to have a lot of light when you need it. Other times, you may want to create a dim and relaxing vibe (for example, when you’re relaxing in the tub). Additionally, don’t forget to attach a fan to your lighting to filter out humid air and leave you with a fresh-smelling, non-mildew-ridden bathroom.
- Vanity Mirrors and Other Decor
Lastly, consider what type of overall style you’d like. This will make itself evident in the mirror that you choose for over your vanity and other decorations in the room. Often, homeowners will choose to have plants and flowers in their bathrooms as many varieties do well in the humid climate.
Hiring Professionals to Get the Job Done Right
To some, it may be tempting to do your own bathroom remodeling in Charleston, but it’s always much better to hire professionals. In the end, the cost is worth it as going with the pros will save you time, frustration, and money. After all, if things go wrong in the DIY process, expensive materials may be wasted, and project re-dos may be inevitable.
Good luck on your bathroom remodeling in Charleston, and be sure to consider all of the points above before you hire a quality contractor in your area.
