Remodeling a bathroom in your home can be an exciting endeavor. Your bathroom is one of the most frequently used spaces in your home, so why wouldn’t you be thrilled to make it just the way you want? However, you might also feel a little overwhelmed. After all, bathroom remodeling is a major investment, and you’ll have many decisions to make, from choosing the right contractor to selecting finishes that you’ll love for years to come. Don’t worry. Our ultimate guide to bathroom remodeling will show you that the process can be easier than you might expect.
Start Gathering Ideas
Your first step should be to get a general idea of what you’d like to accomplish with your bathroom remodel. Would you love to take a long, luxurious soak at the end of a long workday? Do you want to transform your bathroom into an oasis of modern design by having a sleek walk-in shower installed? Are you tired of dealing with clutter in your bathroom and looking for a way to keep your products better organized? Take some time to ask yourself these questions and do some research online and in your favorite home magazines to find inspiration.
Develop a Budget
The cost of bathroom remodeling varies widely and will depend on many different factors. Start by figuring out what’s most important to you. For example, do you want to redo the entire space, including having a new toilet, flooring, lighting, and vanity installed? Or, would you be satisfied with an updated bathtub or shower? From here, you can start getting a better idea of what, approximately, your project will cost.
Understand Your Material Options
The materials you choose will have a major impact on the cost, appearance, and functionality of your new bathroom—from acrylic tubs and tile showers to wall surrounds made from natural or synthetic materials and much more. Keep in mind that many homeowners are opting for high-performance synthetic shower and bath systems. For example, nonporous acrylic is increasingly popular thanks to its durability and ease of maintenance as well as the fact that it is available in many different colors, patterns, and styles.
Consider Safety Features
At-home accidents occur most frequently in the bathroom. Your remodel is the perfect opportunity to prevent slips and falls that can cause injury. Consider incorporating features, such as non-slip flooring, grab bars, and seating into your remodeled tub or shower.
Modern bathtubs and showers are available with many different accessories to make the space more appealing and functional. If, for instance, you struggle with clutter, you should consider adding built-in soap dishes, corner caddies, and other storage accessories. This is also the point at which you should think about the finishes, such as fixtures, doors, curtain rods, and more that you’d like incorporated into your remodel.
Find a Reliable Bathroom Remodeling Company
Armed with a budget and a basic understanding of what you’d like from your remodel, you should start searching for a bathroom remodeling company that can address your specific needs and preferences. At a bare minimum, the company you choose should be experienced with bathroom remodeling and have proper licensing and insurance. However, to make the most of your project, you should choose a company that offers comprehensive design services and custom solutions. They should be able to explain the benefits of the products they offer, establish a clear timeline of the project, and back their work with excellent warranties.
