Here are just a few features to focus on when remodeling that old bathroom.

Bathroom remodeling is one of the top projects on homeowners' lists of things that they'd like to do to their houses. And if you're a homeowner, you might be interested in learning more about some projects that you can do to make your bathroom more updated, functional, and beautiful. There are many projects out there, but here are some of the best ones that can make the biggest difference.

Frosting the Windows

If you have a window in your bathroom, you're actually very fortunate. Not all bathrooms have windows, but they add wonderful sunlight. But they can create privacy issues. One of the biggest benefits to frosting or tinting your glass windows is that it creates privacy without sacrificing sunlight. Frosted or tinted glass can also reduce how hot your bathroom gets from sunlight. Frosted or tinted glass looks especially nice if the window is over the shower or tub area.

Upgrading the Cabinetry

If you choose to upgrade the cabinetry, there are many styles and finishes that you can choose from. One of the most important aspects of cabinetry design is making the most of the space that you have. According to this expert on bathroom cabinetry, “custom bathroom cabinets (also known as bathroom vanities) can be just the solution to creating unique and functional bathrooms that stand out. Bathroom cabinetry is a functional piece that is often overlooked. Yet it plays a major part of making the most of the space in your bathroom. It can also be a major centerpiece if properly designed. With the right kind of planning, your cabinetry can make your bathroom remodeling project a success.” Functional drawers and design will make storing your bathroom items easier.

Tile the Shower/Bath

The tile that you choose for your bathtub or shower area can play a major role in the aesthetics of a bathroom. Neutral tiles are in, and they won't go out of style quickly. But there are also many colors of glass tiles that can make a bathroom look sleek and updated. To get ideas, you can look at home decorating websites for ideas.

Heated Floors

Heated floors in the bathroom are one of the biggest trends in luxury bathroom design today. Instead of stepping onto cold tile after you leave your bathroom shower, you can experience the warmth of radiant floor heating. According to this floor heating specialist, “one of the most appealing features of floor heating is that it is invisible: No trace of its existence! At first glance, there are no heating units visible along baseboards of walls and no air vents to be seen anywhere in the room. It therefore offers greater flexibility in placing furniture and curtains and other decorative items.” So you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics or design for functionality.

There are many projects that you can choose, and you don't have to do them all at the same time. Make a plan, though, so that you can pick the projects that you will most enjoy, and do them in an order that will work with your budget and other projects.
