Bathroom Renovation Essentials for the New Year

As another year closes, and a list of 2022 projects begins, remember to choose around-the-house improvements that will not only improve functionality, but also increase the enjoyment of the home. Renovations are the best time to make changes that will serve you and your family for years to come. 

Investing in your home and creating spaces that will ultimately improve quality of life, is a resolution everyone should make this new year. Simple fixes can rejuvenate a room without breaking a budget.

So, what is one of the most overlooked rooms in a house? The bathroom. 

A bathroom is actually one of the most important rooms in a house and should be an oasis to turn to at the end of a long day. Modifying a bathroom with practical fixes like a fresh coat of paint, new fixtures and updated countertops can add significant value to a house. 

Consider these three helpful tips for your new year renovation projects.

Keep it simple – Sometimes avoiding overly individualized designs is the best way to go. Remember, in a small space, little design changes can make a big impact. Upgrading decorative accessories like faucets, shower heads, towel racks and cabinet handles can make a world of a difference and are generally inexpensive. Don’t forget to enhance the most important bathroom accessory: the toilet. Stylish, highly functional and good quality toilet seats are the only way to ensure a best-in-class bathroom experience. Consider a durable seat like our Executive Toilet Seat for extra stability and comfort.

Improve functionality - There’s no need for a huge bathroom overhaul to majorly impact the functionality or aesthetic of a space. If limited on square footage, consider a mounted wall shelf to help declutter countertops and keep things tidy. Ensure the ventilation system is up-to-date to avoid mold and mildew, many new ones have built-in humidity sensors that activate a fan automatically. Find a durable toilet seat that’s built to last. Consider a brand like Bath Royale that offers slow close and quick release for easy cleaning. Unlike painted wood seats, Bath Royale seats are a solid color throughout and will not chip, peel or fade.

Prioritize convenience - Sometimes the easiest budget upgrades are also the most practical. If you’re looking to save money, consider accessories that double in duty and add some clever convenience. Think dual-purpose medicine cabinets that add beauty and extra storage. If you’ll be replacing a showerhead during your remodel, consider a low-flow option that can save thousands of gallons of water per year depending on use. For families with young children, consider a Premium Family Toilet Seat with Built-In Child Seat. The built-in child seat eliminates bathroom clutter and converts to a regular adult seat when potty training is over.
