Tips for Renovating Your Hatteras Bathroom

Jan 14th, 2011No Comments

A bathroom renovation sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it?  But where should you start?

Today we will be helping you get started on your bathroom makeover by giving you some tips on renovation planning:

  • Layout – First of all, you need to plan your new bathroom layout.  By layout, we mean which walls will be hosting the pipes and drains.  Having your sink, toilet and bathtub faucet along the same wall is the easiest option, but can be a little bit limiting.  Having pipes in two or even three walls opens up some great possibilities, but will likely include expensive plumbing work that can increase the price of your renovation.
  • Sink – Choosing the right sink can set the tone for your whole bathroom.  Since it is the first thing people see when they enter, you want to choose your sink wisely.  Take a look at this previous article for tips on bathroom sinks.
  • Bathtub – Your bathtub can enhance the overall effect of your bathroom renovation to a remarkable degree.  Make your bathtub the focal point of the room with decking and walls of tile, stone, or marble.  Another great option is a whirlpool tub for maximum relaxation.
  • Spa – If you have the room, you should consider a spa shower.  Multiple water streams massaging every part of your body are the perfect complement to a whirlpool tub.
  • Cabinets – Your new bathroom will certainly need some storage, and cabinets are the key.  The variety is almost endless, but you can get some ideas for great bathroom cabinets here.
  • Floors and Walls – Once you have the major design decisions squared away, you need to decide what to surround them with.  The best choices for your beautiful new bathroom are stone or tile flooring.  These are the classic choices for good reason.
  • Lighting – You want to see the beauty of your new bathroom, so lighting is an important part of the renovation.  The lighting scheme will depend heavily on your other bathroom choices, so we recommend sitting down with your renovation professional to discuss your options.

Use these tips to turn your bathroom renovation into an exciting project.  If you do it right, your bathroom renovation will give you pleasure for years to come.
