In our previous blog, The Home People gave you tips on making your Hollywood bathroom remodel go smoothly. We’ll stay in the bathroom for this blog, giving you more important tips for your bathroom remodel.
Use skylights to your advantage.
If space for windows is limited in your bathroom, skylights could be the solution you’re looking for. Skylights provide much-needed natural light in your space, and can help you save money on energy bills by keeping your lights off during the daylight hours. Plus, you’ll be able to take advantage of otherwise useless ceiling space, allowing you to maximize your wall space with storage, more windows, or mirrors.
Keep in mind—skylight installation is a job for the professionals, and can come at a hefty price. However, it’s a virtual guarantee that you’ll thoroughly enjoy your skylights.
Swap your tub for a shower.
The art of home renovation is creating a space that looks more luxurious than it costs. So when you have a chance to give part of your bathroom some sumptuous flair without breaking the bank, you should take that chance.
When it comes to the bathtub or shower area, you have plenty of opportunities to increase the luxury of your space—that is, if you don’t take baths. Instead of spending $500+ on a simple ceramic bathtub alone, you could spend a similar amount of money creating a full-size tiled shower area with a fancy rainfall showerhead—and you wouldn’t even have to reroute any plumbing. This kind of strategy doesn’t just allow to you to live lavishly in your home—it can dramatically increase your ROI when it comes time to sell your home.
Buy a quality toilet.
Not all toilets are created equal—take it from these toilets. But that doesn’t mean you need to spend your life savings on a bluetooth-ready, seat-heating super-toilet. Ultimately, you need a toilet that flushes the goods efficiently—no more, no less.
Buying a fancy toilet isn’t necessarily going to increase the ROI on your bathroom remodel, but neither is a bargain bin toilet. If your toilet is defeated by everyday business and needs frequent repairs, you’ll be wishing you spent a few extra bucks on a more power porcelain throne.
The solution to this problem is to check independent toilet research to see which toilets have the best energy efficiency and flush power for the price. This will help you find the perfect toilet for your budget, without any problems down the road.
