At Absolute Glassworks, we have helped many homeowners in the Houston area with their shower glass, bath enclosures and other bathroom remodeling solutions.
In the past few weeks, we have been talking about things to consider and do when renovating your bathroom. However, we're going to change it up a bit and talk about what you should avoid doing when it comes time to remodeling your bathroom. These tips can save you a lot of time, money, and possible headaches during your remodel.
Forgetting About the View and Natural Light
Don't forget about the beautiful view outside! Sometimes people overlook this simple step and end up with a bathroom that is dark and gloomy inside. Always be sure there is adequate lighting, especially if you do not already have, or are unable to put a window in the bathroom. Also, consider there are some great skylight options that will allow natural light to come into your bathroom space. A skylight provides light without requiring an outside wall and maintains a higher level of privacy. Quality shower glass will also keep your privacy while allowing a skylight or other overhead light source to brighten the room.
Avoid Creating a Clear View of another Area
We have seen it all. People put their bathroom door in an area where there is a clear view looking right into their dining room (and vise versa)! This can create awkward situations and make guests and family members feel quite uncomfortable. Be sure to install or "remodel" a new bathroom in a location that is not visible from other more public areas of your home.
You will definitely want to explore your options when it comes to installing a new door and shower glass. For example, many people opt for a "curbless" shower that will give your bathroom a much larger feel. An open approach also keeps your bathroom looking sophisticated and unique. This is a great look, so don't just stay with the norm - let us show you some really creative ideas that don't break your budget.
Bigger Does Not Equal Better
Everyone has heard the saying that sometimes less is more. Well, in the case of a bathroom, this is often true! Sure, having a spacious restroom is great when possible. But many homes have limited space in the bathrooms. Here at Absolute Glassworks, we can help you maximize your space with a unique vanity, or by using an indented curve in the shower to provide a place to put your toiletries. There are many options that are not big, yet still accomplish the look and feel you want.
Don't Forget the Power!
With most remodeling, there are electrical and plumbing needs to consider. Be sure the layout you create will allow for efficient plumbing, and that the electrical plugs and switches can be placed in safe, easily accessible locations. When it comes to electrical, we always recommend you contact a professional to come out and give you an estimate. Whoever you select for these needs, be sure to check out their reviews online and their credentials before making your final selection.
We hope you keep these things in mind to avoid unwanted issues, so that your project gives you all of the enjoyment that you want for many years to come. Also, keep in mind that at the end of the day, it all comes down to your personal preferences. So always prioritize and select those options that give you the best look and experience!
