5 Tips For Your Ideal Bathroom Remodel

bathroom remodeling peoriaBathroom remodels are quite popular, given the utility of the space combined with providing a good return on investment. They increase your home’s overall value and bring in a “fresh new coat” to your living space as well.

Bathroom Remodeling Peoria

Before you begin your next Peoria bathroom remodel, consider these five tips from our experts at Kelley Construction for creating your ideal space with your visionary dream.

Create a Space for Toiletries

While aesthetic features are certainly important, the function will truly make your bathroom remodel stand out and function even more properly and efficiently. This is particularly the case when it comes to the shower, where you can create a recessed spot for shampoos and conditioners. Consider a bathroom vanity with adequate storage, too, to decrease the countertop clutter. 

Design Lighting to Please

You want your bathroom to be well-lit but not overpowering. Relying on recessed overhead lights can create problems, particularly when looking in the mirror and trying to get ready for the day. Instead, place two attractive light fixtures at eye level on either side of a mirror to provide more suitable lighting for doing hair and makeup. If you have a vast mirror, opt instead for a long lighting fixture above it. 

Go With Wainscoting Over Wallpaper

If you are tempted to choose the wallpaper for your bathroom, take a deep breath and say no. Wallpaper is known to not stand up to the humidity in your bathroom. If you’d prefer something other than painted walls or tile, go with wainscoting, which will stand the test of time while also adding a bit of a vintage look to your bathroom remodel. 

Consider a Corner Sink

Some of us have bathrooms that are much smaller than we wish. However, there are things that you can do to help maximize space. A corner sink is one way to add some extra space to your bathroom remodel. This can also be used to give your bathroom remodel more of a trendy, modern look. Have trouble squeezing by one another in the bathroom? This might be a good solution. 

Splurge on a Few High-End Things

You don’t need to break the budget to get an elegant bathroom to remodel. Simply investing in a few high-end things can make these become a focal point of the space. Whether you want to invest in a higher-end bathtub, faucet, or lighting fixtures, just one or two small touches can really elevate the feel of a bathroom, allowing you to opt for affordable materials for the remainder of the remodel.
