How to Make the Most of Your Bathroom Renovations

Thinking about a bathroom remodel? There are a lot of things to think about when planning your new bathroom. If you’re pulling everything out and starting from scratch, the possibilities are nearly unlimited. Only your imagination and creativity can put a damper on your renovation plans and outcome.

So how do you get the most out of your bathroom remodel? Think outside the box, and consider what you might need in your bathroom in the future. Here are some examples:

Grab Bars

You might not really need them right now, but grab bars can be wonderful things. If you’re ill and feeling dizzy or lightheaded, a grab bar can help you safely use the toilet. Grab bars in a tub/shower combo can make it a lot easier to get in and out of the bath.

Toilet Paper Storage

Admit it, where to put your toilet paper is one of the hardest decisions to make about your household. If you store it in a closet outside the bathroom, you could be stranded. If you store it in a decorative container for the purpose, it takes away from your floor space and gives you one more thing to clean and disinfect. Keep this frustration in mind during planning and think hard about adding some recessed shelving.


Did you know that almost everything in your bathroom could have bacteria, germs, and even fecal matter? If you flush your toilet with the lid up, the plume can extend several feet. If you leave your toiletries in the bathroom in the open, its going to be covered in nastiness. Again, recessed shelves with a curtain or door works great.


It’s really tempting after a long day to leave your dirty clothes in the floor of the bathroom. If that’s something you know you do a lot, plan for it in advance. Put in a built in hamper, a laundry chute, or a small load studio washer/dryer.
