To ensure that you are making the right decision regarding your basement bathroom renovation, you should take note of some interconnected aspects of homebuilding and/or renovation. First of which is the size of your bathroom. If it is a new bathroom that you are going to install, you have to make sure that the size will be proportional to your basement and to your house in general. The size of your desired new basement bathroom will also be the deciding factor of what stuff you are going to put in it – a shower unit, a vanity unit or some other stuff that can fit in there. Lastly, the size of your bathroom – whether a new one or a renovated one – will have a tremendous effect on your budget. The size of your bathroom will also affect the type or size of the materials or fixtures that you will put in it.
For example, you can have a very large bathtub and vanity sets if you are planning for an equally big bathroom. In the same manner that only small paraphernalia or fixtures will need to be installed in an average or small-sized basement bathroom. The second factor to consider is your intended design.
Do you have any color motif? Would you consider wood tiles? What about your window, what size of the window would you want to be installed in your basement bathroom? This is where your creativity will need to come in. Some things that may help you decide on your design are:
Pantone color guide – which can help you see the best color combination
Homebuilding magazines and/or browsing through the internet – which will help you achieve the theme that you want for your bathroom.
Are you the vintage or rustic type or you more inclined to have a modern look for your bathroom?
Or would you rather choose the more conventional look of your bathroom?
Discuss with your family and contractor – Each of your family members will surely have something to say.
In the same manner that surely, your contractor will be able to discuss and give you suggestions as to the most suited design for yourself and that will also fit the overall look or theme of your house. The last, but definitely not the least, factor to consider is your budget. This is strongly linked to the first two factors stated above because the size and your design will not be achieved if your budget will not be enough. In considering your budget, it will be helpful to check the current market trend in home and/or bathroom renovation. It will also be helpful if you do the canvassing of materials that you want to put in your bathroom.
