Kid-Safe Design

If you have very young children running around the home, you always want to ensure their safety. Home accidents are preventable with an updated flooring and child-proof bathroom design.

Bathmats can only prevent slippage in specific areas. Install slip-resistant flooring to protect your children anywhere in the space. Textured stone tile and ceramic flooring are also great for preventing slips.

Small children often have a tough time seeing above the counter or stepping into a bathtub. Small plastic stools may not stay in place very well, but installing steps is a simple solution. A lift-out step attached to a drawer or cabinet under the sink is more durable and reliable for preventing falls. A mounted step into the basin, as well as a rail to hold on to can also make it easier for them to climb in and out. Other things to consider include:

  • Choosing faucets and handles that are easy to use and rounded with no sharp corners or edges.
  • Adding more storage with locking cabinets to keep dangerous items out of reach.
  • Using wainscoting to protect your drywall from excessive splashing.
  • A simple shower remodel or installing a kid-friendly shower door that allows your kids to easily step in and out without hassle.

Bathroom Ventilation Tips

Maintain a clean and healthy space by keeping mold and mildew from flourishing in your space. Proper ventilation is a necessary part of the bath remodeling process. The size and type of shower you’re installing affects the number of fans needed.

If your space is 100 sq. feet or less, one fan placed above or near the shower is suffice. The fan would need to be capable of 100 CFM (cubic feet of air moved) per minute.

If your space is larger than 100 sq. feet, it’s recommended to install additional ones. The fan size the shower needs depends on the type. if it’s a walk-in stall, then 50 CFM would work. If it’s a shower and bathtub, you’ll need one that approaches 100 CFM, especially if the space is large. A window, if possible, would also help with air ventilation.

Bathroom Plumbing

The most difficult part of a bathroom renovation is configuring the plumbing. Sinks, showers, and toilets all need it. There are the typical hot and cold lines that they use as well. However, whirlpool tubs need different sets of pipes and plumbing structure. Discuss what options are best for you with your custom bathroom contractor! You want to pick lines that are durable and won’t need repairs for years to come.

Most contractors are moving away from copper lines and transitioning to cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipes. These types of lines are much more flexible with similar durability. PEX pipes come with a 25-year warranty and allow you to maximize your budget.

Pros and Cons of Low Flow Toilets

Low flow toilets are a big focus in bath remodels to ensure energy efficiency. On average, low-flow toilets use about half the gallons per flush as normal toilets. But are they a better alternative?

The big problem with low flow toilets is that one flush may not always be enough. Having to flush twice defeats the purpose. We recommend using a dual-flush toilet. These have two options for flush capacity, depending on how much you need to flush. These will allow you to use about a half-gallon more per flush when necessary.

Space-Saving Design

As much as a large bathroom would be nice, sometimes space is limited. Extra towels, toiletries and cleaning products all need a storage spot. Wall-mounted cabinets or shelving can help in this regard.

Mounting holders inside cabinets save space and keep your things organized. Toothbrushes, cosmetics, and razors can all hang on the wall. This allows the actual shelves and drawers to have space for larger items. A well-organized room makes all the difference, especially for smaller ones, like powder rooms.

Common Mistakes In A Bath Remodel

There are many common pitfalls when remodeling your bathroom. For example, if plumbing or ventilation are done incorrectly, you will need to make expensive repairs later. 

Here are a few mistakes new remodelers make:

  • More does not mean better – A bathroom remodel should simplify the room and make life easier. We’ve mentioned the importance of saving space. It’s important not to add too much clutter.
  • Poor lighting – Improper placement or inadequate lighting make preparing for the day difficult.
  • No natural light — Natural light is very important for creating a spa-like atmosphere. If a window isn’t an option, get creative and put in a skylight. The space is one of the first places you go to in the morning. Bringing in natural light allows you to wake up to a more peaceful ambience.
  • Toilet as the main focus – The toilet shouldn’t be the first thing you see in the room. Small spaces make this less avoidable, but there are plenty of designs that highlight other sections.
  • Bad sealing – Leaks are the last thing you’ll want to deal with after investing so much time and money into the remodel. Make sure all tiles, appliances, drains, and pipes are sealed shut and properly in place.

Frequently Asked Questions

What determines the cost of your new bathroom?

Remodeling a bathroom can be a complex process. There are many different things to consider when determining the price. The materials you want for your bathroom, the cost of installing new floors or putting on a fresh coat of paint, etc. Cabinets usually take up half of the cost of a bathroom remodeling project. What you want altered and what you need re-done will help us find out the total cost of your remodeling project. 

How long does it take to remodel a bathroom?

Under ideal circumstances, a bathroom remodel can take around 3-4 weeks. The exact time, though, depends on the scope of the project. If your bathroom needs new piping or wiring, the timeline will look different than more superficial updates to the room’s look. Kaminskiy makes sure that your remodel will be finished within the timeframe agreed upon prior to start of the project. 

Do you need permits to remodel your bathroom?

You need the proper permits if your remodeling project requires changes to the structure of your home, installation of new wiring, or redoing piping. For smaller aesthetic changes, such as fresh paint and changing out sinks, you do not need permits. 

Can you remodel your own bathroom?

While it is possible to remodel your own bathroom, it is not recommended beyond small superficial changes to the paint and fixtures. Re-doing piping and electrical requires training and experience, and proper permits to complete. In many cases doing remodeling projects will take longer to complete without the experience of professionals.
