All of your home’s residents use its bathrooms, and your guests also need a loo. That’s why you want each one to look its best. When doing a renovation, excellent results come from excellent planning.
Count on Valley Design Center to superbly carry out your kitchen or bathroom improvement project. Our team of professionals offers a wide range of customizable services that are handled with expertise and care. We also have in-house designers who would be happy to help you create the new blueprint.
If you’re an enthusiastic do-it-yourselfer who wants to map out your bathroom reno yourself and then have Valley Design Center take over from there, here are some points to keep in mind.
Incorrect measurements—major and minor—can spell disaster. Here are just a few possible unwanted results: water fixtures that are too big or little; a wrong-size door; not enough room between the toilet and the vanity; a piece of storage furniture’s drawers hinder movement in the room when they’re open.
Consider proper placements
For example, rather than the toilet and/or shower being visible when the door is open, place them out of eyesight. A bathroom with a window but no exhaust fan might affect where you put the shower.
Shine the right lights
Down-facing bulbs over the vanity are harsh and visually unpleasant. Install several light sources that offer a variety of wattages, ambiances and styles. Have the electrician wire the lights so they can be turned on individually.
Size things up
Create separate zones
If the bathroom is large, don’t jam everything against the walls and leave a void in the middle. Zones make a bathroom more welcoming and functional. Up the luxe factor by giving each component—the vanity, shower, bathtub, shower, storage cabinets—its own area.
Consider the current infrastructure
This is a crucial one. Before mapping everything out, know where the studs, plumbing and electrical structures are behind each wall. If you want or need to move the existing locations, the changes will add time and money to the project.
