If the room allows for both, it is a smart move to keep an eye out for any sales at the local hardware store.

If space if of a premium in the bathroom that your are renovating, then storage may become a problem. A recessed cabinet on the wall for storage of shaving gear and deodorants etc is an easy option and most affordable.

Ensure the drains for plumbing are in the correct place before the lining is installed. Have all electrical wiring hidden behind the lining. Install an exhaust fan with the light, as this will allow the dampness to be extracted from the room, limiting the build up of mode. Ensure the bath shower and the vanity is all fitted properly before any tiling of the walls is done and the flooring is laid. Correct and careful bathroom remodelling offers elegance to any type of house. It is an important project that helps give a great return on your investment.

It is an excellent idea to install a ceiling exhaust fan. This draws moisture out of a small room and eliminates the chance of mould appearing. Correct lighting is important. If there is a large mirror over the vanity then a few LED lights are reasonably affordable and relatively easy to install and would look classy. It is essential that all electrical wiring is behind a wall to eliminate any moisture creeping into it. Bathroom remodeling offers elegance and enjoyment to any type of house and raises the value of your residence if you thinking of selling your home in the future.

If the budget allows expanding the bathroom space and separating the toilet from the bathing area is another alternative if you already have a toilet installed in the existing bathroom.. If you do not have any idea how to go about this there are any amount of ideas in home decorating magazines.
