If you've ever renovated a bathroom, then you know there are so many details to take into consideration, like how to choose a shower head, how to measure a shower door, how to measure and choose the right toilet, how to choose the right bathtub, and how to hang that heavy mirror.  Since I have been helping my parents with some design choices for their bathroom renovation, the need for some expert advice on bathroom renovating has come to my attention.  So, I pulled together a few articles that will hopefully give you the basic information you need.

When picking out a shower head, I had no idea how many options there were.  You can choose between a fixed, adjustable, rain, handheld, dual or sliding shower head.  Each brand and type of shower head also have different options within them, like preset options, water flow and other personal adjustments.

Oh, how we underestimate the value of choosing the right toilet!  We often want to rush through this part of the bathroom renovation because it is not the most glamorous aspect of our renovation, but because of the practicality of your toilet, it is important not to rush past this one.  Make sure you know how to choose and measure the right throne for your space.  You won't regret it if you do.
