Important Things to Know About Bath Remodeling

  1. Lighting. Why not start with one of the most important elements in your bathroom? If you don’t have enough windows, consider adding them or installing a skylight. Natural light allows your bath space to look brighter and feel warmer and more comfortable. Given how natural light is essential to good health, more windows can be a huge plus. Another benefit: when opened, windows can get rid of lingering odors and excess moisture in the bathroom, resulting in a fresher, airier space.

  1. Counter Space. If you require extra counter space, make sure the new bathroom layout can accommodate it. DreamMaker’s bath remodeling experts can help you with this. We’ll work with you to create a design that allows for the counter space you need while still allowing for smooth flow of movement.

  1. Safety & Mobility. If there are older family members living with you or if you plan to age in place in your home, it’s a good idea to invest in upgrades that contribute to better mobility and safety in the bathroom. Walk-in showers instead of the conventional bathtub, grab bars, wall-mounted sinks and wider doorways are just a few options.

  1. Storage. You might be interested in smarter storage solutions to better accommodate your bath essentials. Instead of more cabinets, open shelves can be added so the room doesn’t feel cramped. You can also install storage in more underutilized spots in the bathroom, including the space above the door and over the toilet.

  1. Style. Is your bath looking a bit outdated? DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Elizabethtown, your full bathroom remodel expert, offers many creative design ideas for bathrooms. Our highly skilled team can plan ways to incorporate stylish features, overcome any space limitations and accomplish virtually any goal you have in mind.

  1. Bathtub/Shower. This is the focal point of any bath space. Depending on your needs, you can choose one or the other, or both. Homeowners without small children typically go for showers, while others are content to while away the time in a bathtub.
