Tips And Tricks For Common Bathroom Design In Long Grove: An Expert Note

When it comes time to renovate your bathroom, we thought it would be useful if we shared some of our expert opinions with you. This blog will help you decide how you want to move forward with your Common Bathroom Design in Long Grove.

Bathroom construction or renovation requires careful planning because there are many factors to take into account such as choosing fixtures, surface materials, cabinetry, and electrical and plumbing requirements.

When designing your bathroom, it is important that each functioning space has enough room.   A vanity or freestanding tub should be the first item you see when you enter the bathroom.  The toilet should not be its main feature.

Bathtub, Shower, Or Both?

Trends in bathroom design have changed and there is no need to install an unused bathtub.  The majority of renovations favor a big, roomy shower over a huge tub, but some worry that if their home lacks a bathtub, it won’t be as valuable when they sell.  If you’re having trouble deciding, think about how many people in your home regularly take baths and whether installing a bathtub would make your shower less comfortable.  Perhaps one tub in your home is enough.  If you are a person who loves a relaxing bath at the end of the day there are many bath options available such air injection or soaking tubs.  If this is the case, you may prefer a smaller shower.

Adequate Lighting Is Essential

For a bathroom to be functional, there must be adequate lighting.  To prevent casting shadows, mirror lighting should be properly positioned.  Some renovations favor creating a more tranquil environment by installing mood lighting.  This is created using toe-kick lighting, dimmable LED medicine cabinets, and proper-sized recessed down-lighting.

Low-Maintenance Materials Are Always The Best Choice

Because of the high usage of your bathroom, your best bet for bathroom surfaces is to use long-lasting and simple-to-maintain materials like porcelain ceramics and engineered stone.  The porous nature of the natural stone makes it more difficult to maintain over time and requires more sealing than other types of stone.

Consider The Texture Of The Tiles

Do not choose glossy tiles for the shower base because they are slippery.  Tiles with coarser surfaces tend to collect dirt and are more difficult to clean.  If you choose natural stone tiles, make sure they are sealed so that they are more water-resistant.   Picking a tile that is semi-smooth will serve you better in the long run.  It is important that the bathroom is grouted, caulked, and waterproofed to avoid bathtub or shower leaks.  If not done properly, expensive repairs will occur over time.
