When starting a bathroom remodeling project think about utility as well as design. Bathrooms are often difficult jobs because multiple components must be arranged to fit–and function–in a small space. There’s also multiple water elements so doing the project correctly, from plumbing to ventilation, is imperative.
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, bathroom fixtures take up 20% of the renovation budget on average so when choosing fixtures and finishes consider who is using the space and how heavily it will be used. Is it a kid’s bathroom? Then plastic laminate flooring and countertops are a good option because they’re both durable and inexpensive (and high-end material is of less importance to children). You’ll thank yourself later for using finishes that are low maintenance and easy to keep clean. In that regard, choose quartz instead of marble and make sure glass shower doors are treated with anti-spotting agents

Focusing on a shower when upgrading your bathroom is vital; most adults 45 or older prefer a shower to a bathtub. According to a survey by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, the top universal design feature consumers want in their homes is a barrier-free shower — essentially one that is easy to access without having to climb in and out.
