3 Design Factors to Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom, Green, Ohio

When brainstorming design ideas for a new bathroom, it’s common to think of how you’ll want the interior fixtures, flooring, and accents to look. But according to Murphy Home Improvement—a leading exterior remodeling company in Cincinnati—renovating a bathroom often involves a change in the structural design of the actual room. If you’re planning on a bathroom remodel, these Cincinnati home improvement experts encourage homeowners to consider possible changes to the layout of the new space. These changes may simply mean moving fixtures around the room, or could extend to opening the bathroom through wall expansion or new window installation.  

Here are a few things to consider if you want to change up the layout of your bathroom during your remodel:

  • Bathing Options: Moving from a full tub to a shower is ideal if you’re trying to increase available space without making changes to the actual size of the room. If this is the case, opt for a three-quarter bathroom. However, if luxury and space-sharing is your goal, introducing a posh bath layout could be ideal. Posh baths contain a tub separate from a walk-in shower.
  • remodeling CSpacing Standards: In addition to local construction regulations, it’s important to consider the minimal standards for how things should be arranged in a bathroom. For instance, industry remodeling experts encourage at least 15 inches of clear space in front of a toilet for comfort. So while you may want to add many new things to your bathroom, make sure these additions don’t cramp the comfort of your new space.
  • Natural Lighting: In bathrooms not near the outside of a home, electrical fixtures may be the only way to improve the lighting design. However, if your bathroom remodeling takes place near the exterior of your home, you could opt to have new, larger windows placed by a professional. With treatments, you can achieve a whole new sense of natural lighting to brighten your bathroom’s design without sacrificing privacy.

If your bathroom remodeling project in Cincinnati involves new window installation, Murphy Home Improvement is happy to help. Offering a wide selection of windows, doors, roofing, and siding solutions, these professionals can assist with all the essential elements of exterior remodeling for bathrooms and beyond.
