New Year's Resolutions for Your Bathroom Renovation
Baths, especially master baths, can be costly and challenging rooms to design. They touch on your home’s pipes, ventilation and electrical systems, and frequently entail adherence to new water- or energy-saving local building codes.
Below are some New Year’s resolutions to think about if you’re arranging a master bathroom remodel this season. These timely ideas may make your space more water-efficient, safe, comfortable and fashionable.

Bathroom Resolution No. 1: I will offer myself enough leg room
Separate toilet rooms are highly sought after in new houses, as they add an element of privacy to a shared bath. The problem is, some builders don’t factor in enough room in front of the toilet. You don’t need to move your knees to close the door, or bump your feet into another fixture when you sit on your water cupboard.

Bathroom Resolution No. 2: I will upgrade my floors wisely
There was a time when a polished marble flooring in a toilet was a hot luxury look. In my view, they’re a busted hip waiting to occur. Slip-resistant tiles really are a far better solution for a flooring you frequently step on with wet feet.

Bathroom Resolution No. 3: I will kick my heavy-metal habit
In case you’re upgrading your toilet, go frameless. It’s a cleaner, crisper look that lets your shower tile become the star.
Bathroom Resolution No. 4: I will bench myself following season
One of those things you lose if you replace a bathtub with a standalone shower is somewhere to sit. A shower seat replaces the bathtub ledge for cushioned leg or washing shaving. Make sure you design into your own shower programs, even if it’s just a small corner seat.

Bathroom Resolution No. 5: I will take things into my own hands
A handshower is a real boon to any shower, however especiallly for accident-prone sports fans and seniors. It’s best positioned within reach of your own shower bench for total accessibility.

Bathroom Resolution No. 6: I’ll give me sufficient elbow room.
Toilet storage systems are a excellent way to add storage to a toilet, as these do. If, however, you’re cramped for space, bypass this option. Use the additional space to set a soap dispenser or dish and have room left for your own contact lens holders.
Bathroom Resolution No. 7: I will begin thinking”straight” next year.
This is not a slam on anyone’s tastes or thought processes! However, straight-style linear drains are the very best shower innovation to come along in years, and it is crazy not to think about including one when updating your shower.
They’re available in numerous metal finishes, as shown here, or from tile-ready format (you barely see these at all). In addition to enhancing the style of your own shower, they’re also able to boost its safety and add versatility in drain positioning.

Bathroom Resolution No. 8: I am getting off the stair master following year
For a number of years, tubs in master suites have been treated like royalty and installed on high with imperial stairs leading up to them… sometimes marble stairs to enhance the regal effect.
I can not think of a worse idea for exiting a bathtub with wet feet. Ditch the stairs on your bathroom remodel in favor of a bathtub edge where you could sit and swivel. It’s far safer, and better-looking, also.

Bathroom Resolution No. 9: I resolve to be a market player next year
Niches are perfect ways to increase your own bathroom storage. Shower markets likely come to mind first, and I urge one per shower usage, but also think about the space behind a swinging toilet door or on an a blank wall for additional storage enhancement.
Nutone Humidity Sensing Fan
Bathroom Resolution No. 10: I will use my vent fan whenever
If your vent fan is noisy, so many are, you probably bypass using it. This can create an unhealthy mold problem in your toilet.
To prevent that matter and return calmness into your toilet, think about a humidity-sensing, ultra-quiet vent fan to replace the one that you presently have.
