Prioritizing during a bathroom remodel can be a difficult thing. You might want to gut the entire room and redo every inch. But often, budgets will not allow for such a big job. If you find yourself needing to decide between luxuries and necessary upgrades, Indy Renovation recommends starting with these 5 bathroom features that are typically considered to be top priority.
1. Walk-In Shower
Walk-in showers are as beautiful and trendy as they are functional. Most homeowners would consider a shower to be a necessity and a free-standing tub to be a luxury. If you can’t afford both, we recommend that you go with a custom walk-in shower that will fit your space perfectly and look great for years to come.
2. Dual Vanity
If you’re going to upgrade your existing vanity, don’t skimp on size and space. A dual vanity is essential to give you plenty of storage and room for getting ready. It’s not only a matter of function; if you plan on selling your home at some point, most buyers prefer a dual vanity in the master bath.
3. Tile Flooring
You have a number of flooring options, but we think tile is one of the best choices for a master bathroom. Tile is durable, handles water well, and can even include radiant floor heating for those cold Indiana winter days. You can also coordinate tile with your shower surround for a seamless look and touch of luxury.
Storage might not be the fanciest bathroom feature, but it should not be overlooked. Ample storage makes for a clean and organized bathroom that gives you peace instead of headaches. Most of the time, the vanity alone doesn’t do the trick, so you may want to consider additional closet space or cabinetry. If you are working with a small space, our design team can help you find some creative options that maximize what you already have.
Natural light is essential to making your space feel bigger and more serene while also adding the light needed for everyday tasks like putting on makeup. We recommend that you do everything you can to increase the natural light in your master bath. If your master bath is completely buried in the interior of your home, then our team can help you choose lighting that best mimics natural light.
