Completing a bathroom remodel is a great way to add beauty and value to your home. Fortunately, easy tips are available to ensure a successful renovation project.

Finding Inspiration. There are multiple avenues through which to find ideas you love: you can leaf through home interior magazines, search social media sites such as Pinterest, or visit home-improvement stores to view various displays.

Choosing Fixtures and Tiles. Keeping the picture in mind of what you found appealing when searching for inspiration, decide which tiles, colors and fixtures best match your ideal for a remodeling project. For example, if you prefer a modern theme, colored fixtures may breathe new life into your old bathroom. If a traditional or Victorian bathroom is desired, brushed nickel or gold tone fixtures are ideal. When choosing tiles, remember that smaller tiles feature more grout, which means a less slippery floor.

Ventilation. Ventilation should also be updated when you remodel. Moisture is your bathroom’s biggest enemy, and mildew and mold will quickly devalue any renovation project you have completed. Therefore, be sure to consider the installation of a new ventilation fan or any other hardware necessary to ensure that the bathroom is properly vented for many future years.

Hire a Contractor. Only hire a contractor with a good reputation and plenty of experience. Because your home is a large investment, you should take your time with the selection process in order to ensure the best possible choice is made.

Details. When planning your renovations, give appropriate thought to the location of lights and fixtures and how they will be used. Walk through your old bathroom and decide if you want one or two mirrors, single or multiple wall sconces, and where you want cabinet hardware, towel bars and shelves. Such details are important, and communicating such information to your contractor in advance is very helpful. Regardless of the style you prefer, completing a bathroom remodel is a great way to add value to your home and the aforementioned tips will help you enjoy a successful renovation project.
