5 Things to Consider When Renovating Your Bathroom

If you’re considering a bathroom renovation, it’s important to consider all the details. There are many factors that go into choosing the right layout, color scheme, and materials for your new bathroom and some of them are more obvious than others. Here are five things to keep in mind when planning your next home improvement project:

  • Choose the Right Shower Drainage

When choosing your shower drainage, there are a few things to consider.

  • Choose a shower tray that is easy to clean: avoid grout as it can trap dirt and is difficult to keep clean. If you do want to use grout, choose one that’s easy to remove and replace with new tiles if necessary.
  • Consider the size of the shower tray: Shower trays come in all shapes and sizes so make sure you measure the space where your new shower will be installed before choosing one. Make sure there’s enough room for two people at once.
  • Consider the height of the shower tray: It can be difficult for shorter people such as children or elderly adults to step over this part of their bathroom installation so make sure it has enough clearance. Hinges may also be useful if they’re installed at an angle that makes opening/closing easier than having hinges directly above each other (like most doors).

Shower trays should have drain holes at both ends so water doesn’t accumulate inside which could cause mold growth in humid environments like bathrooms which would require more frequent cleaning processes than other areas around the home like kitchens where cooking odors don’t matter much because those rooms tend not to get used often enough for smells build up quickly anyway.

  • Pick the Colour Theme

When it comes to choosing a color scheme, there are many factors to consider. If you’re going with a bolder color (like red or yellow), so keep it simple and pair it with neutral tones like beige, sand, or white. This will ensure that the room feels comfortable and light.

On the other hand, if you want your space to feel more sophisticated and elegant, muted tones work well for this purpose. However, if you want your bathroom to look more lively then vibrant colors are definitely an option here too. There are so many choices out there, here are some ideas below:

  • The vibrant blue is calming while bright green gives off an energetic vibe; both work well in bathrooms because they reflect nature’s beauty as well as symbolize cleanliness. In addition, these shades add depth and dimension which make them ideal for small spaces where everything needs room to breathe.
  • Deep purple works great if paired with gray tones such as black or white; this combination creates a sophisticated atmosphere that can easily transition into other rooms of your house (such as bedrooms).
  • Light and Size

So you’ve decided it’s time to renovate your bathroom. But how do you determine what will work best for your space and needs?

When renovating a bathroom, there are a few things to consider:

  • Light and Size

The size of the room is important because it determines how much light can enter the space. You want enough light to make the room feel bright but not too much that it makes cleaning difficult. The same applies to size; if there isn’t enough room, then you may end up with less storage than desired or use bulky furniture instead of something more elegant. The shower should be large enough for two adults comfortably without being so big that water splashes out everywhere when someone oversteps their boundaries while bathing. A bathtub should also be spacious enough so that one person can lie down comfortably without feeling cramped in any direction, especially if they want to read while soaking in hot water after a long day at work or school. The window is another important factor since this allows natural lighting into your new home improvement project (not just artificial lights). Also remember that when determining window size: larger windows allow more light into rooms making them brighter; however smaller windows provide privacy which means less chance someone outside can see inside your house through their window.

  • Storage

Here are some things to keep in mind when planning your storage needs:

  • Storage is important. It’s an essential part of any bathroom, but it can be difficult to find the right amount of storage that suits you and your family.
  • You may need more space than you think. Seasonal clothing changes and daily-use items like makeup, toiletries, hair products, and other personal care products will add up quickly. It’s also not uncommon for people to have a large number of towels or linens stored within their bathrooms for easy access during their morning routine.
  • The expense can become an issue if you don’t do your research first. Many people don’t realize how much adding extra materials into their home repairs budget can end up costing them until after they’ve done all the work themselves (or paid someone else).
  • Hidden solutions are often better than open ones because they take up less room visually while maximizing available space behind cabinets/towel racks/sinks by utilizing vertical space instead of horizontal which would normally just look cluttered on its own with nothing else around it except possibly another cabinet door being opened regularly as well.

  • Function

When renovating your bathroom, the goal should be to make it function well. This can be achieved by ensuring that you have a well-designed bathroom.

To make your bathroom function better:

  • Add storage space for towels and toiletries in the shower/bath area. This will help keep unnecessary clutter out of sight and out of mind when you need to focus on other things like getting ready for work or spending time with friends and family
  • Install low-voltage lighting fixtures above each sink so that you can easily see what’s going on under the faucet at all times (and avoid those annoying moments when someone asks for help).


When renovating your bathroom, there are many things to consider. You want a bathroom that is practical and comfortable, but you also want it to look good. The key thing is to get everything right the first time around so that you don’t have to do it all over again in a few years’ time. It’s worth doing your research before buying any new products or making any changes; this will save you money and headaches down the line as well as make sure everything works together nicely.
