Is there a bathroom in your home that is in desperate need of a remodel? Is it dated or not functional for you and your family? Do you need a little direction and inspiration to get started with renovating your master bathroom, guest bathroom or powder bathroom? Then you’ve come to the right place. Here is how to get started.
Probably one of the most important parts of remodeling your bathroom is the planning stage. Start with your budget. How much do you have to spend? Meet with an experienced bathroom remodeler to see what options you have, what recommendations they make, develop a floorplan, etc.
Taking the correct measurements is another important part of the process. A professional needs to measure for the size of your bathroom (existing or renovated size), location of existing electrical wiring and plumbing pipes and knowing the typical standard dimensions of bathroom fixtures. The average homeowner will probably not know how to perfect this step.
Asking your remodeler about time estimates is helpful too. You’ll want to know how long the construction will take and what arrangements to make during the process. What is the timeline so you know if they are on schedule or not.
Function and Design
How do you want your bathroom to function better? What style is the rest of your home that you want to carry over to your bathroom? Do you want a walk-in shower or a luxurious claw foot tub as the showcase? What paint color or tile do you prefer? A bathroom designer can help you navigate these decisions easily to design your perfect bathroom. Design and function should go hand and hand for the best result to occur. Don’t forget to concentrate on the ventilation in the bathroom. Choices in this area will support good health and extending the life of wood trim and fixtures, etc.
Fixtures, Furnishings and Features
This is the fun part that you’ve been dreaming about! The sky is the limit with choices of:
Flooring and Walls
Think about durability, slip-resistance, cost and aesthetics when making decisions about your flooring. You can look at ceramic, marble, granite, etc. It is really a personal choice. You’ll want to select wall surfaces (paint, wallpaper, etc.) that will be waterproof to handle the moisture in the room.
In the construction industry, there are so many variables and possible unknowns. Finding a bathroom remodeler that you can trust and communicates with you is crucial. Opening up a wall, or removing a tub in an older home can open up a can of worms and possibly extend the budget and time. It is completely out of the remodeler’s hands what they find but having someone you can trust to be honest about the prices and timeline will make the entire process a little easier to deal with.
A bathroom is a necessity for everyone in the home. You can turn it into a beautiful sanctuary to be enjoyed and pamper you while you shut out the world. It also adds major value for resale when done properly. Go enjoy the process!
