Tips for Starting Your Bathroom Remodel

Remodeling a bathroom is one of the top home improvement projects to boost your home’s value while giving you a place to relax and luxuriate after a long day at work. But because there are so many components of a dream bathroom remodel, knowing where to start can be a challenge.

That’s why we’re here to help—read on to learn a few things to focus on during your remodeling project:

  • Improve the lighting: The first thing to consider during your remodeling project is updating your lighting. A bathroom that’s dark and dim can make the space feel cramped and not someplace you want to spend your time. Soft, filtered lighting gives your bathroom an elegant feel that everyone will appreciate. To really step it up, talk to your remodeling contractor about adding a skylight!
  • Freshen up the walls: Your walls are often the first thing people notice when walking into your bathroom, so don’t forget to update them. Something as simple as changing the color of your walls can go a long way in making your bathroom seem bigger and more luxurious. You can add a fresh coat of white paint by yourself or further elevate your bathroom by installing light-colored marble on the walls.
  • Fix the flooring: Ditch that old vinyl, and upgrade your flooring to a high-end material like marble or a unique ceramic tile. You’ll be amazed at how changing your floors can instantly transform your bathroom. While upgrading your floors can be a DIY project, we always recommend bringing in a professional.
  • Don’t forget storage: One of the worst mistakes you can make is upgrading your bathroom without expanding your storage space. Add built-in cabinetry and shelving under your new vanity to ensure your luxury bathroom will never look cluttered or be difficult to navigate in.
  • Review the focal point: Just like in any home improvement project, bathroom remodeling should include adding a focal point. A component of the room that attracts the eye makes your bathroom visually stunning while enhancing its functionality. A freestanding tub or an oversized double vanity can do just that.
  • Rethink your fixtures: Don’t spend your hard-earned money updating the flooring and walls without touching the fixtures. Cheap, outdated fixtures hold your bathroom back from being all that it can be. Consider adding a rainwater showerhead or designer faucets to take your bathroom to the next level.
  • It’s all about the details: Many customers get hung up on the big-ticket items like showers and tubs during their dream bathroom remodel and forget about the finer details. Adding things like heated towel racks, heated floors and built-in speakers can turn an ordinary bathroom into a luxury spa that you’ll love spending time in.
