Planning A Bathroom Remodel

Planning A Bathroom Remodel

Planning a bathroom remodel? DBI would love to help. We offer free consultations; but, here are some tips to get you dreaming!


Vision Board

Start with a vision board. Whether you’re cutting photos from magazines and ads or using a digital version like Pinterest or just saving images from Instagram or other online sources… SAVE everything that speaks to you.

Set Goals

Define your priorities and set goals. A remodel can get overwhelming quickly, but rank every choice by priorities. Are you wanting to make your space family-friendly or user-friendly? Do you need more storage? Are you looking to mainly update colors? What DIY muscles are you prepared to flex? How much time do you want to spend on this makeover? Sometimes a makeover can be as simple as paint (even on tile and on cabinets), and sometimes you’re ready to truly go for it and fully demo a space first… this is something you should decide BEFORE you even begin, or you can find yourself in too deep, and quickly.

Measure

Measure, measure, and then measure again. From the size vanity, you need/want, to the amount of tile or paint you’ll need. From the door size to the shower opening, etc. For every part of the design that you’ll be updating and/or replacing, make sure you take detailed measurements. It’s much quicker to measure a couple of times and write those measurements down than it is to make a purchase or order only to find it won’t fit or work in your space.

Lay Out

Lay it out first. Once you have a good idea of what you want to happen in the space, find photos online or pictures of the items you want to use and lay them out so you can see how they all work together.

Pick the Right Flooring

Solid wood floors, while they do infuse bathrooms with great character, are not the best type of flooring material for bathrooms. Instead, pick flooring that is hardy enough to stand up against the rigors of daily bathroom use. Bathroom flooring favorites include ceramic and porcelain tile. Also, luxury vinyl plank, vinyl tiles, and sheet vinyl flooring.

Adjust Room Size With Color

To make a small bathroom look bigger, make sure that your color palette stays in the white-or-light color spectrum. Dark colors make the room feel smaller, claustrophobic. Use white or light-colored fixtures (i.e., toilet and bathtub). Always think twice about painting your bathroom ceiling any color but white or off-white, as this tends to shrink the room down even more.

Recess For Extra Room

When space is tight, built-ins such as recessed soap dishes, medicine cabinets, and even toilet roll holders pry out as much available room as possible from tiny bathrooms. You can flatten the ceiling light by converting your ceiling light into a recessed light.

Address Bathroom Ventilation

Bathrooms need some type of ventilation, by code, either in the form of a properly sized window or a bathroom exhaust fan. For bathroom fans, look at both their exhaust capacity (or how many cubic feet of air per minute they can move) in conjunction with their noise levels.

Add Plants for Living Color

Plants in the bathroom should not be an afterthought. Plants bring much-needed color into sterile bathrooms. Consider adding a floating shelf expressly for giving your trailing plants a cozy home.
