What is the best flooring for bathrooms?
Ceramic tile is almost always an excellent choice for floors in bathrooms and other wet areas. The grout lines can be sealed with a sealant that will help prevent mold growth and water damage. Marble is another good flooring option for bathrooms. If the marble is treated, it can be used outdoors as well. With a polished surface and nice sheen, it requires less maintenance than other stone types. Stone slabs or pavers will last basically forever but are not always very comfortable on bare feet (because of their jagged edges).
What can you do with a poorly placed bathtub?
Many factors go into determining the best bathroom layout, including the dimensions of the room and whether you want to install a shower in addition to your tub or vice versa. You may be able to make it work by repositioning your toilet, refinishing the tub or by choosing a different floor plan.
Can you put a shower in a room with no window?
A basement bathroom with no outside walls is an option. You will need to install adequate lighting and ventilation or choose steam fixtures that can also function as exhaust fans.
What is best to put on bathroom walls?
You can install wallpaper, but it’s not easy to change later. Paint and vinyl-coated wallpaper are less difficult to remove if you decide to sell your home in a few years.
How do you create more storage in a bathroom?
Install cabinets and shelving. Use your walls, the ceiling, or a corner of the room for storage if you can’t add a cabinet. A fabric shower basket hung from hooks is another idea and it provides an easy way to remove excess clutter while adding décor at the same time.
Is there anything I should avoid when remodeling a bathroom?
Don’t try to do everything at once. It’s better to have a bathroom that works well rather than doing something you may regret later. For example, if the plumbing and wiring cannot handle an extra shower head, don’t add it until they are upgraded.
