Considerations Before remodeling a bathroom
home remodelingincludes renovations of the bathroom. Whether you have a master en suite or a simple powder room, functionality has to be at the heart of your bathroom remodeling. The following are some of the tricks to consider before you embark on the process.
• Plumbing: When doing residential plumbing, you will typically use 1 ½ inch pipe for the drains. It will consume a lot of it and the larger the drain, the lesser likely it is going to clog. The cost to upgrade the piping is negligible and unless the framing will not allow for it, you need to consider the shower drainage to be at least 2 inches
If you stay in a region where there is a drop below the freezing point during winter time, the water supply lines mustn’t do get routed in an exterior wall.
• Lighting: Throughout the ceiling, you need to consider recessed light fixtures to brighten up the room. The shower should have at least two and ensure that they have a proper shower trim. A dimmer switch has to be installed so that you can adjust your bathroom mood.
You will need to consider how you will be using your mirror in the bathroom and whether you want functional or aesthetic lighting. Whether you will be shaving or applying make up, having brightly fixed lights that are placed in the bathroom will help you to see what you are doing.
• Medicine cabinets: Does your bathroom have space for recessing your medicine cabinet? It is a great way of saving space instead of having a shallow space, and having an additional framing will not impact negatively on your budget. If that is not what you want, then ensure that there is enough room in your vanity cabinet for the medicine cabinet.
