While you take a shower, its patterns obscure your form from others while still allowing light to penetrate into the stall and more natural light into the room.
While it may be tempting, changing the location of the toilet can incur more expense than it’s worth since it would take a significant amount of time and effort to plumb new sewer drain lines. Wall lighting, effective for eliminating shadows by the mirror, is generally used in conjunction with overhead lights.
Wall lighting is particularly useful for illuminating areas that require extra light. Sconces installed on either side of the mirror provide additional light for grooming.
Strip lights installed over the mirror also ensure adequate, even light for grooming tasks. These lights are available in a number of modern designs.
You can place recessed lighting anywhere, and it’s especially useful for lower ceilings. Recessed lights can be bright or dim and angled to highlight wall decorations.
You bathroom’s wall coverings need to be durable because of moisture, heat and cleaning requirements. Many homeowners choose gloss and semigloss paint and vinyl wallpaper for their water-repelling qualities.
Wallpaper styles change quickly, and finding matching wallpaper down the road may be difficult.
Much like any other tile option, you can choose from an endless array of patterns, sizes and textures. You’ll need to clean these floors regularly and seal the grout to prevent mildew from forming.
Vinyl flooring and linoleum floors are also waterproof, durable and easy-to-clean. Although possible, some flooring choices that may be used in other parts of the home may not work well in the bathroom, such as carpeting and wood flooring. Talk to your neighbors, friends and family about their projects.
Get at least three written estimates that clearly define the project and what materials will be used.
Having an estimate in writing can help provide you recourse should something go wrong. Make sure you can get hold of a contractor when you need him or her. Be cautious of businesses that list only a post office box address but no street address or that use an answering service.
Don’t hire unsolicited, door-to-door contractors or those who can’t prove their qualifications.
Never hire a contractor that insists you pay cash up front. Some states or cities have no licensing requirements for contractors, which can make it difficult for homeowners to check up on contractors before they hire. Don’t rely on the contractor’s word to know whether his or her license is valid.
Ask your potential hire for proof of insurance or bonding. Contractors who operate aboveboard should be prepared to share this information.
Taking the extra step of calling the insurance or bond company to verify that a policy is active and paid up can offer you greater peace of mind. Know the details of the contract, as well as how any change orders will be handled. Check that your contract includes a lien waiver, covering payments to all subcontractors who worked on the project.
Before you sign off and make the final payment to a contractor, make sure you develop a punch list and ensure that the work is complete to your satisfaction. This is how the contractor will deal with the list of small items remaining to be completed at the end of the job.
