When planning to remodel your bathroom, there are a number of things to take into consideration. Not the least of these is asking yourself where or how you will spend the time that the bathroom is out of action.

If you have a second or third bathroom in the home, this will not be a problem. However, if you only have one bathroom you will need to be able to stay with family or friends for a couple of weeks. Alternatively, you might consider having the work done while you are on holiday.

How You Use Your Bathroom

Next up is to think about how you use your bathroom. Apart from the obvious functions, different people use their...

It is very easy to make mistakes when thinking about remodeling your bathroom, but if you do so they can cost you a lot of money. As somebody once said, there is nothing that is more expensive than doing something twice. It follows that you need to put thought into the planning process, and do not rush it. Poor planning is the chief reason for cost over-run. You should spend several weeks in the planning stage, especially since you will want to consider lots of different designs of bathroom furniture, showers, bathtubs, sink vanities, tiles, perhaps a linen cupboard or a medicine cabinet.

For example, take the Wyndham Collection of...

If you have an older style bathroom, there are plenty of ways that you can spruce it up without doing a complete remodel. Completely remodeling it is going to be a costly affair. Furthermore, if you do it yourself and only have weekends available, you won’t be able to use it for two months, which is tricky if you only have one bathroom.

Even if you use professional contractors, it will still be out of action for a couple of weeks. You might want to consider doing a makeover, rather than remodeling.

Many older bathrooms have insufficient storage space and suffer from tired floors and walls, surfaces that are difficult to clean, and...

If you are considering remodeling your bathroom and you have consideration for the environment, there are some options which can help you go green.

One idea is to install a larger window, or install an additional window. Many bathrooms have very small windows, but by adding additional natural light, you will cut down on your lighting bill and use less energy. You could also install overhead lighting in the form of a skylight. When replacing lighting it is best to use fluorescent lighting coupled with electronic ballasts to minimize energy use. However, if you are not keen on fluorescent lighting, try and use energy-efficient halogen...

When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, there are many possibilities. If you have unlimited money, then you can do anything that you want to do; for example, gold plated faucets may be no problem.

Unfortunately, the fact is that the vast majority of us do not have unlimited money, so we have to work with a set a budget. The first thing to do is to decide what that budget should be. This will depend on your savings and income, so nobody can tell you how much you should or should not spend.

However, you really do need to sit down and work out a budget. If you do not, you could finish up spending far more than you thought. There are...

Remodeling your bathroom is a major project, and not one that is to be undertaken lightly. You really need to think things through before you start ripping out the shower and tearing tiles off the wall. Think of it in these terms: you only have one chance to get it right!
 
Here are some tips which should help you on your way. 


 
One of the major considerations is the plumbing. Unless you are prepared to spend a considerable amount of money ripping up the floor and having plumbing professionally altered, you are stuck with the system the way it is now. That means that you have to have the toilet where it is at present, and the tub...

Bathrooms today have become not just places in which to wash and shower, but rooms in which to relax. Many people take a book to read while in the bath, install a TV, or go online to Facebook and Twitter on their mobile phones.
 
It follows that, when considering remodelling your bathroom, you take into account the fact that you will probably spend quite a bit of time in there. You therefore want it to be comfortable and appealing.


 
One thing to think about is underfloor heating. Yes, it does mean that you will have to rip up the floor, and it is not cheap to install. However, it adds that touch of utter luxury to the bathroom...

As is so often the case, if you ask the question “Which is better – a vanity sink or a pedestal sink?” the answer is “It depends”.
 
There is absolutely no doubt that a pedestal sink takes up less room than a vanity sink, so if you have a very small bathroom that you are going to remodel, that may well be the deciding factor.


 
However, what you need to remember is that a pedestal sink – while taking up less space – offers you nothing else in return. It occupies the space that it occupies, but it does not give you any storage space of any description. In that sense, a pedestal sink is wasting space, which can be a...
