When looking for bathroom renovation ideas, it’s easy to find advice about floor plans and fixtures. It’s much harder to find advice about the little touches that make the bathroom more livable. When you think of them after the remodel is done, it may be too expensive or difficult to add them later.
One good way to get bathroom renovation ideas is to visualize how you will be using the room. For example, will there be multiple people trying to use the sink or the mirror at the same time? Can you fit in 2 sinks and 2 mirrors so you won’t be bumping into each other?
What appliances will you be using? You most likely have a blow dryer, and possibly a curling iron or straightening iron, and maybe an electric razor and an electric toothbrush. Consider whether there will be enough outlets conveniently located to have everything you need running at the same time.
There never seems to be enough storage in a bathroom, so consider installing a mirrored medicine cabinet over the sink instead of just a mirror. Don’t skimp on the size of the cabinet. Get the largest one you can afford that fits in the available space. Not only will you have a larger mirror that 2 people can possibly share at the same time, but you’ll also have plenty of storage space for cosmetics and medicines.
Consider asking your bathroom remodeler to install electrical outlets inside your new cabinet. You can store your electric toothbrushes inside the cabinet to charge. This will reduce clutter on the vanity and help make your bathroom appear more spacious.
