Cedars Woodworking and Interior Painting, LLC. provides bathroom remodeling services in Lancaster PA and surrounding areas. Bathroom remodels require much thinking ahead, especially if you plan on staying in your home for a long time. When considering a bathroom remodel, ask yourself the following questions:
1.) Will I be keeping the existing layout? Keeping the tub/shower and toilet where they are can save you major plumbing expenses. If you need to change the layout of the bathroom to make more space or accommodate a lifestyle change, Cedars Woodworking strongly recommends hiring a professional to assist with design.
2.) Is my sub-floor in good condition? Bathrooms fluctuate in temperature and humidity. Before starting any bathroom remodel project, have a professional check your floor for weak areas, mold, and other potential problems.
3.) Do I have enough storage? To avoid disappointment and remorse when your bathroom remodel is done, be sure to evaluate your storage. Have you planned for enough areas to store clean towels? Can you accommodate several beauty tools such as hair dryers, curling irons, flat irons and more? Where will you store beauty supplies, medicines, lotions, extra toilet paper, and first aid items? Again, working with a professional bathroom designer can provide you with solutions to ensure enough storage space.
4.) What amount of counter space do I need on my vanity? A good professional bathroom designer will address and assess how much counter space you need, and the best way to achieve adequate space on your vanity.
5.) Do I have adequate ventilation and light? This is a factor that some tend to forget during the remodel process. Bathrooms are known for odors and humidity, so be sure you have a good ventilation system to prevent mold and odor buildup. Lighting is another key element to the bathroom. Are your lights positioned correctly for shaving, applying make-up and styling hair? A professional bathroom designer will help to position lighting correctly to avoid shadows and dark areas in your bathroom.
6.) Consider water usage. Many homeowners are now leaning toward shower areas that exclude a tub. Opting for multiple shower heads and body jets may be a dream come true, but they also require more water. Be sure to evaluate, or have a professional evaluate, what capacity your current water heater can handle. You may need to upgrade your water heater to accommodate your new shower.
