The decision to have a bathroom remodeling is often a good one. You get to turn your bathroom into a private oasis, or a part of the house you can retreat to by the end of the day. Secondly, you get the chance to turn your ordinary bathroom into one that fits your home’s design and overall theme.

Here Are 4 Things to Consider When Remodeling Your Master Bathroom
1. Choose Your Flooring Wisely
It’s best to weigh in all the pros and cons of all types of flooring before you make a decision. Wood, for example, works well as a general flooring material but it won’t fare well as bathroom flooring. The same goes for stone as it needs to be treated, sealed and maintained to keep its beauty. Ceramic and vinyl are standout choices as they are generally low maintenance and cost-effective. Think about what each type of flooring can offer you and whether or not you’ll be able to maintain it in the long run.
2. Consider Ventilation As Well
Part of a good bathroom remodeling project is thinking about proper ventilation. Poor ventilation or having none at all can lead to the presence of mold, mildew and moisture, which can prematurely age your other expensive upgrades such as new cabinetry, flooring and paint.
3. Invest In Your Bathroom Needs
You should invest where you need to and choose less expensive materials for the less important aspects of your new bathroom. If you’re looking to turn your bathroom into an R & R retreat, then it makes total sense to invest in a high-tech bathroom filled with modern features. If you don’t plan on spending too much time in this part of the home, then a comfortable one with standard features should do just fine.
The bottom line is that you should devote most of your budget on the aspects that matter most for you; toilet, shower/tub, vanity. Work that aspect out first before going on to the next point, i.e., flooring, walls, fixtures, etc.
4. Bath or Shower?
For decades, bathroom renovations had to have oversized tubs as part of the remodeling project. But today, it’s perfectly acceptable to forego the bath tub in favor of a more functional and modern shower. You can choose from many types- hand-held shower heads, rain bars, overhead mounted heads, body sprays and steam showers are just some of the many options to consider.
