If you’re considering hiring Chevy Chase Exteriors or another contractor to do your bathroom remodel, here are some things to consider for your planning process.
Ventilation may not be the funniest part of a bathroom remodel, but it is one of the most important. According to code, ventilation for a bathroom is required, but how much and how noisy it is is up to you. I recommend a powerful fan, that operates with minimal noise.
Mirrors will make your bathroom look bigger, and serve a functional purpose. Strategic placement of mirrors will allow you to see the back of your head for help with hair-dos and make a room brighter.
Do you want a shower, a bath, both, or a combination of the two? To some extent this is decided by the amount of space you have.
A glass door will make a walk in shower seem bigger, or if you waterproof the surrounding area you can even go doorless. A shower curtain is easy to change as you want to change the look of the bathroom though, and is easy to use if you are bathing kids.
To protect the bottom of your wall, you’ll want either wainscoting or beadboard. Either will help keep moisture out of the walls of your home, and thus protect them.
Hang hooks where you can for things like bathrobes, towels, and even folding makeup kits. Is there room in your bathroom remodel to put a linen closet? What about toilet paper storage?
