PLANNING BATHROOM REMODELING TOGETHER


This article will help you create a functional, aesthetically pleasing and comfortable space in the bathroom. Novukit specialists have selected for you a number of useful tips for bathroom remodeling!




Define Your Needs


First of all, think carefully about what features you want to have in your bathroom. For example, do you need a shower or bathtub, single or double sink? Where do you apply your makeup: in front of the bathroom mirror or behind the dressing table in the bedroom? Where should the washing machine be? Do you need an electric water heater?


If you like to take a bath or have small children, then you probably prefer a bath instead of a shower. If 4 or more people will live in the apartment, it is better to have a separate bathroom or two bathrooms.


What and where do you plan to store? Hygiene products, washing and cleaning products, cosmetics, dirty laundry and clothes, hair dryer, appliances...



Make A Detailed Plan Of The Bathroom


Carefully measure your bathroom and, based on the available space, determine which sanitary ware and furniture you can place. 


You can increase the size of your bathroom due to the corridor.


Place the elements of the bathroom so that they are convenient to use. Consider how the shower door will open, where towels and bathrobes will hang. Where will the sockets and switches be located? It is important that the bathroom is not only beautiful, but also comfortable.



Take Care Of Safety


Bathroom safety is extremely important, especially if you have children, the elderly, or people with disabilities living in your home.


A damp bathroom environment can promote the growth of mold and mildew. Make sure your project has good ventilation to allow air to circulate and avoid mold problems. A good solution would be to place the exhaust fan in the shower area, where the most steam and moisture is generated.


A warm floor in the bathroom and in the shower platform, in addition to tactile pleasure, will accelerate the drying of moisture and prevent the formation of mold and fungus.


Use a non-slip mat on the bathroom floor. It will help prevent a fall, especially on a wet floor.


Install grab bars and handrails near the shower, tub, and toilet. This will provide extra support and help prevent falls.



General Recommendations


When choosing materials for walls, floors and offices, pay attention to their strength, moisture resistance and ease of maintenance. Quartz, quartzite, granite slabs, painted cabinets made of solid wood, boxes made of high-quality plywood are popular options for the bathroom. Experience shows that they will be most reliable in wet rooms.


Consider three lighting scenarios in the bathroom: general lighting, decorative and functional lighting, night lighting. General lighting should illuminate the entire room evenly without dark corners. 

Decorative lighting should provide soft lighting to create a relaxing atmosphere. Functional lighting can illuminate the area where you take care of yourself.

A night light is necessary for using the bathroom at night to make your sleep comfortable. Decorative lighting can perform the function of night light.


Add decorative elements that can give your bathroom personality and style. It can be beautiful towels, plants, paintings or other interior details.


Provide enough cabinets, shelves or drawers to store towels, cosmetics, detergents and other items to keep the bathroom tidy.


Place a large mirror on one of the walls in the bathroom to visually increase the space. This will create a feeling of space and light.


The style of the bathroom and interior solutions should usually match the general style of the apartment.
