Freshen Up Your Bathroom With A Springtime RemodelBathrooms9


Every sink has advantages and disadvantages based on the type of bathroom you’re creating. Pedestal sinks are great for small powder rooms, but offer no storage or deck space. Vessel sinks sit above the counter so you have more room for drawers, but it can be tougher to keep clean. A vanity with a sink takes up the most room in a bathroom, but it has a lot of storage and deck space.


Porcelain or glazed tiles make an easy floor to care for. Porous natural stone tiles are usually more expensive but can really help beautify a space. If you want a non-slip floor, choose tiles with textured surfaces, matte finishes or sand-containing glazes.


A fan is a must. For a master bath, splurge on a very quiet fan which won’t wake up your partner at night. For a family or guest bathroom, consider a mid-range model, possibly with a timer so you don’t have to rely on kids or guests to turn it on or off. For small powder rooms install a loud fan for maximum sound privacy near public areas.


Certain features like a hand-held shower can be added at any time, but you should plan permanent features from the start. Grab-bars should be secured to wall studs, and you may want to consider a shower which is level with the rest of the bathroom so no one has to step up into it.

Master Bath Musts

If you’re designing a master bath, you’ll definitely want to consider creating a private area for the toilet. You might also like to have a separate shower and bathtub so two people can clean-up at once. Creating a double-sink vanity is on the top of many people’s wish lists, just be sure to leave enough space between the two sinks, drain to drain.


A recessed niche in a tub or shower gives your soaps and shampoo a permanent home, rather than using a shower caddy which takes up valuable shower space.
