During a bathroom remodel when things are already in disarray is the time to make changes in electrical wiring and any upgrades to plumbing, bathroom lighting, etc. The addition of a large soaking tub, or a whirlpool bathtub may require a larger source of hot water, or special sized piping. In a much older bath electrical may need updating to supply additional outlets, or to handle the load of updated fixtures. The following checklist will give you a few suggestion of things to consider while changes are being made.

Checklist-features to consider:

 

  • Shower and/or bathtub
  • Water saving toilet
  • Larger hot water tank/Tankless water heater
  • Updated wiring and outlets
  • Ventilation
  • Better more diverse lighting
  • larger vanity/two basin vanity
  • Additional storage for linens and bath supplies
  • larger/Updated medicine cabinet or mirror
  • Under-floor heating grids
  • New updated flooring
  • Towel warmer
  • Steam shower
  • Sauna
  • Jet or whirlpool bath
  • Temperature ontrolled faucets and shower heads
  • New more functional floor plan
  • Expanding bath into available unused space


A few suggestions to get you started with your planning:

When you begin planning your new bathroom, consider who uses it and the many functions that will take place in your newly remodeled bathroom carefully. Who primarily uses this bath will determine most of it's needs. A bathroom that serves a household with children or seniors will have different needs than in a household of younger adults.

 

  • Young adults/no children-consider future changes
  • Young Children with reach/height restrictions
  • Guests
  • Seniors who may have special needs
  • Number of people using the bath at the same time-getting ready for the day in a busy household
  • Bathing Children-small Children may be more easily managed in a tub
  • Showering-for basic hygeine-or for relaxation with jets and/or massage
  • Basic grooming in vanity area
  • Applying makeup
  • Relaxing in Whirlpool/Sauna/Steam
