It’s no surprise that bathroom remodels are the second-most popular home renovation after outdoor space upgrades, according to a LightStream survey. Whether you and your partner have just moved into a new home or you’ve been living in the same house for years, you’re probably familiar with the challenges that come with sharing a bathroom. From countertop clutter to not having enough space, the bathroom can easily become a crowded warzone.
The good news is, with the help of professional Louisville remodelers, there are a few ways you can make coexisting in any bathroom that much easier. Here are four bathroom renovation ideas to consider to maximize your space, minimize clutter, and keep your bathroom battles at bay.
Give yourself double the counter space
One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make when renovating their bathroom is incorporating a double sink without doubling the counter space. Make sure your Louisville remodelers know your storage needs so everyone is happy when the project is finished.
Incorporate more cabinetry
Additional cabinetry can do wonders for your bathroom organization, especially if you don’t have room in your hallway closets for bathroom items such as toilet paper and towels. Consider using vertical space alongside the cabinets beneath your bathroom sink.
Change out your plumbing drain pipes
This is a small change during your bathroom renovation that can make a big difference. Typical bathroom drain plumbing is 1.5 inches in diameter and made from PVC plastic. Because these pipes aren’t very wide they can become clogged easily, especially by hair.
By switching out your 1.5-inch pipes for pipes that are two inches in diameter, you can make it easier to drain water in your bathroom. That means fewer sink clogs when you’re trying to get ready in the morning.
Consider removing the tub
If you have another bathroom in your house that has a bathtub, it might be a good idea to remove the tub in your master bathroom if you and your partner don’t use it. Bathtubs can take up valuable space you could be using for cabinetry and organization.
