Before you remodel your bathroom ... ask yourself if you're going to achieve better FUNCTION as well as a better LOOK. Sure, it's may seem nice to have pretty tile & counter tops, but will you achieve better storage solutions? A more comfortable shower? Better lighting?
Next - ask yourself how long will I live here? Many changes such as tile or counter tops might be your taste, but they may not be what the new buyer wants when it's time to sell. Perhaps you like wood stained cabinets but they prefer white cabinets..... perhaps you'd like a large shower, but they prefer a big garden tub....or vice-versa.
Here's 5 upgrades that are easy and effective to make.
|1) Recessed niches in shower stalls and jacuzzi tub areas in the bathroom|
allow you to store towels, shampoos, soap, etc.
|2) A recessed bathroom cabinet (as above, flushed with the sheet rock) will provide lots of storage|
|3) Drawers may be more expensive than drawers - but it's easier to find things in drawers! |
And if you're on a budget, never underestimate the impact that paint can achieve!!
|4) A ceiling mount shower head, and/or a hand held shower head|
