Top Pro Tips for Redoing a Bathroom

Is a bathroom remodel on your to-do list for 2017? There are lots of common
mistakes homeowners make that leave them with regret once the project
is finished. So, before you get to work on that outdated room, check out
these top tips from the ones who dedicate most of their time to decorating
and reconstructing:

No-Hassle Floors

Looking to spend less time scrubbing and more time enjoying? If you want
easy-care flooring your best bet is either porcelain or glazed tiles.
Skip right over porous natural stone options because they’re more
likely to absorb drips and spills and can easily stain over time.

Working With Tight Quarters

Do you know how much space you actually need for a toilet and a sink? In
theory, you can place them into an 11-square-foot space and meet the rules
and regulations put forth by national building codes. However, you’ll
likely feel cramped and uncomfortable so we recommend an area of at least
3 to 4 feet wide by 6 to 10 feet long.

Get Rid Of Clutter

Do you have shampoo bottles and soap dispensers thrown about the shower
or tub in your current bathroom? Please, do yourself a favor and think
about recessed cubbies or in-shower shelving options for the new space.

Cheapest Isn’t Always Best

Especially when it comes to the toilet. We highly recommend spending a
few more dollars on higher quality materials. Not only will the toilet
last longer, you’ll deal with less headaches throughout its lifespan.
