How Should I Plan The Layout In The First Place?

This might not be an easy call, but you need to keep a few factors in mind. First, make a list of all the things that you like and you don’t like about your bathroom. Take a clear note of the pipework, where it comes from, where does it go, etc. Also, you need to look at the electric work as well. When you have a clear picture, it will be easy for you to plan things out.

What Is The Best Flooring Type?

This is another very important concern that troubles the house owners. While selecting floors, the safety should always be the first priority. Forget about the stylish images of marble floors. This is a sure-fire way for disaster. Walking on a marble floor with wet feet is never a sensible decision.

Also, you need to avoid wooden or laminate floors, those are also not a suitable option. The best option is to go with tile or vinyl flooring.

What Is The Right Size Of A Bathroom?

There is no specific guideline to it. This largely depends on the overall area of your house. If you have the space, you can always go with a large bathroom. But if there is space constraint, you can have a bathroom that is 76 cm in width.

But, if you ask for our opinion, we would always prefer a spacious bathroom. This not only looks good; this is a lot more advantageous. With the space, you can maintain the required distance between the fixtures, bathtub or shower, passage etc. Have a look at these images from our Angieslist profile and decide yourself.

Should I Go With A Shower Or Tub?

We face this question a lot whenever we take up any bathroom remodeling project. And to be very honest with you, a bathtub is for spacious bathrooms and for compact bathrooms, a shower will do the job. This is more about the space you have in the bathroom. However, if you have another bathroom in the house with a shower, you can always go with a tub in the other one.

But getting in and getting out of the tub might not be a very convenient option for the elderly people. This offers a little risk. On the other hand, shower offers no such risks.

What Is The Role Of Ventilation?

Well, when house owners ask us how to maintain their bathroom, at MDM Custom Remodeling Inc, it is our responsibility to tell them the truth. We tell them to have proper ventilation in the bathroom. This alone can deal with a lot of issues. The humidity levels in the bathroom are very high, which is the perfect breeding condition for mold and mildew.
A ventilation fan and a window can mitigate the problems to a large extent. When the bathroom is engaged use the fan and when it is not open the window.
