You’re ready for a new bathroom, but not sure where to start—here are our best bathroom remodeling ideas. Whether you’re looking to upgrade a master bathroom or simply freshen up a powder room, these tips will set you on the right path.
Start With a Plan
You probably have a number of ideas floating throughout your head about what your ideal bathroom looks like. Our team will work with you to turn those ideas into a plan that fits into your budget and timeline. From there, all you need to do is set back and let our team do its work. And in eight weeks, you’ll have a new bathroom.
Keep Plumbing Where It Is
Using existing piping will save you significant money in a bathroom renovation. We’ll work with you to design a functional and beautiful bathroom space that utilizes the piping already there. By some estimates, it costs $5,000 to move each plumbing fixture. That’s a saving you can apply elsewhere in your renovation.
Consider Alternatives to Tile
The classic bathroom look includes tile—and we love it. But we also have worked on homes that incorporated reclaimed wood, board and batten, or beadboard as high-end tile replacements. And we love those looks, too. It’s a matter of what you prefer and what works with your home’s aesthetic.
Incorporate Open Shelving
Open shelving creates the illusion in a small space—something a bathroom usually is. Open shelving is functional and can also be used as a design piece to showcase colorful accents.
Let There Be Light
Updating light fixtures in a bathroom is one of the first things people want to undertake in their renovation. Upgrading your vanity lighting is an easy and cost-effective first step. If you have a standalone bath tub, perhaps a chandelier hanging over will provide that wow factor in your bathroom. Or if your bathroom has roof access, bring the outdoors ind with a skylight.
Don’t Skimp On Countertops
The vanity is often the first place your eyes focus on in a bathroom. Pay proper care to the countertops and ensure they meet the same design standards as the other upgrades in your new bathroom.
