Bathrooms are one of the most vital rooms in a home and renovating them correctly is essential to providing optimal homeowner experience and ROI. In this episode, Frances outlines why internal elevations are an integral component of a thoughtfully planned design, helping prevent costly mistakes before construction begins.

An optimal bathroom lighting situation can do wonders for your mental wellbeing. Task lighting for tasks and cleaning should always be available; however, most homeowners would appreciate soft light setting the scene for relaxing soaks in the tub or soft morning showers.
An effective lighting plan begins with recessed lights to provide ambient (general) illumination, with their number determined by ceiling height and distributed evenly around the room.
Choose dimmable bulbs to easily adjust the brightness in your bathroom. Low color temperature bulbs (warmer and yellower hue) provide ideal ambient lighting; brighter, more blue-tinged options provide task and accent lighting respectively.
Decorational lights like sconces and pendants add the perfect finishing touches to your lighting scheme. Make sure they are waterproofed before having them installed by an electrician to ensure safety and compliance with code.
