Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Everyone wants a bathroom that brings comfort, and it’s always even better when it reflects our personal style. The right fixtures and amenities that provide us with both function and value are going to be desirable, as well. Today we are going to share some bathroom remodeling tips that will help you to create the bathroom of your dreams. 

The Plan

  • After you talk to everyone who will be using the space to get their feedback, contact your general contractor and let him or her know what has been decided. Fixtures, finishes, budget, colors – these are all important parts of your bathroom renovation, so make sure you have taken notes that are easy to reference so that you can communicate your vision properly to your remodeling company. Be clear about your budget needs, and make sure you add extra for surprises, cause they are going to happen. Keep in mind that you are looking at anywhere from 60 to 90 days for completion, and plan accordingly. 

The Design

  • Make sure that your design plan matches the rest of your home’s design. It doesn’t have to match in every detail, but there should be a flow of color and pattern. If you are remodeling a master bath, that aspect may need a bit more attention so that you can attain a cohesive look. 

Some Fun

  • A customized bathroom can be a fun addition to any home. Filled with a number of suite fixtures, this type of remodel can bring you a much higher level of comfort and class. Personalized vanities, cabinets, and facilities will ensure that your bath area doesn’t look just like the neighbors, while you can give free rein to your creativity here, as well. Your opportunity to expand on your custom bathroom will depend on your budget, of course, but you can choose natural products, imported specialty items, and you can even do some of the work yourself to add that personal touch. 

Some Trends

  • You might consider a “wet room,” for example, which is a bathroom that has a shower with no enclosure. The water runs away through a floor drain, a style that is common in Europe. You will need to make sure that everything here is waterproof. Also, a wet room can add a lot of value to your home. The uniqueness of wet rooms really shows itself when it comes time to choose the flooring, as the flooring is one of the key features that distinguish a wet room from other types of bathrooms.
