Bathroom remodels are some of the most exciting. There is just so much that you can do to your bathroom to transform it into a haven of peace where you can enjoy your private minutes in total relaxation. The choices you make with your remodeling project will determine the end results you enjoy hence the importance of paying attention to all key areas before you start with the project.

Bathroom hardware

They are some of the things that make your bathroom functional and they can determine the overall look of this space too. As you focus more attention on the floors and bathroom walls, do not forget to give some attention to the hardware you have in there. Sometime updating and refreshing the look of your bathroom is a simple and cheap as changing the smaller items like faucet handles, drawer pulls and also showerheads. To achieve elegant uniformity in the bathroom, let the hardware be in same finish; if you choose aged bronze, then let all these tiny valuable items be in that same finish, same should be the case if you prefer stainless steel for your bathroom. Such small changes can have huge impacts on your remodeling project, yet not many people remember to focus on them.


The bathroom is where you have those relaxing steam baths, but if your space does not manage to dry out properly after use, then you will start having issues with mold and mildew. Moisture is the last thing you want trapped in the bathroom so put in measures to ensure that it remains moisture free most of the times. You can think about high placed bathroom windows in the right sizes to aid natural drying out and proper air circulation, or you can also have a vent fan installed. If you decide to go for the fan, make site that you get the appropriate CFMs per square footage of the bathroom. You do not have to worry about noisy fans because modern new designs are very quiet and stylish, making them great additions to any bathroom.


Lighting remains to be one of the most important elements in a bathroom. Choose the right lighting fixtures and bulbs that are suitable for the bathroom settings to set the mood and at the same time eliminate damage. At the vanity, consider scone lighting that will fetch you even lighting for your face. To get rid of shadows that are not that flattering, consider having the lights installed at eye level. If it is possible to have some dim lights, then consider them too, so you can enjoy those log relaxing baths, but also have bright lights you can use when applying makeup or shaving. The overall lighting will give a large effect to small bathrooms so make sure you make all the right choices. Bathroom lighting is all about placement and correct intensity for the right places.
