When you think about hiring a bathroom remodeling company to redo your bathroom there are a few key points to keep in mind.  Firstly, you need to remember that unless it is a private ensuite bathroom, it will be seen by all your guests and that means that it is one of the most commonly used rooms in the home.  Whether you are remodeling an ensuite bathroom or a publicly accessible bathroom, these tips will help you make the right decisions.

Theme

When you remodel your bathroom, there are many different themes and motifs to choose from, especially with the Internet at your fingertips.  It is important to consider a theme or style that will match the rest of your home or that will at least complement the rest of the home.  Think about the space you have available for the bathroom and the intended use of the bathroom to make the right choice.

Lighting

While lighting is not the most important factor when creating a bathroom, women will appreciate if the lighting is suitable for putting on makeup, while men may appreciate the functionality of the lights.   If possible, always leave room for the possibility of natural light.  Installing a window can also help with ventilation for half baths and will help with steam removal for full bathrooms.

Tiling and Color

If you have a small space for your bathroom, your bathroom remodeling contractors will probably recommend that you use diagonal floor accents since it will help to give the room a longer and more spacious look.  Choosing light airy colors will also help to boost the illusion of space when coupled with the right tiles and lighting.  Rather than using a carpet or rug in the bathroom, you should emphasize the space by using tiles on the floor with a central floor tile pattern to make the most use of space and to avoid clutter.

Storage Space

One of the largest problems that people face when renovating bathrooms, especially half baths for public use, is the storage space.  It is important to think about the purpose of the bathroom and then decide whether to have wall closets built in or if you will make more use of counter and under-sink storage space.  If you are pressed for room, then the best choice to make is to keep only the basics for cleaning and toiletries.  Using wall mounted storage space may negatively affect the feel of the room unless it is done above the toilet to make use of the “lost space.”

Remember that the best thing you can do when remodeling or renovating a small bathroom is to consult with your professional bathroom remodeling contractors to choose the right designs and styles.
