Bathroom Remodeling | Designing Your Bathroom
Bathroom Remodeling | Looking to remodel, boost resale value, and improve the quality of life in your home? Your bathroom is a good place to start.
Remodeling a bathroom is a cost-effective way to increase the value of your house, with your average midrange bathroom remodel getting a more than 70 percent return on investment. After remodeling, you not only can create a more modern, luxurious, and attractive bathroom, but you may see a tremendous rise in the resale value of your whole home as well.
The best remodeled bathrooms blend function with luxury within the confines of a relatively compact space. Before beginning remodeling work, it’s important to plan carefully to address existing layouts, spacing constraints, and furniture, as well as your family’s own unique style, needs, and wants.
Below, we’ve listed some important tips to keep in mind when planning for a bathroom remodel.
Budget your time. Before beginning, you should first determine the amount of time you can spend on your project. Most homeowners are eager to complete this project as soon as possible so they can resume using their bathroom, but this is especially important if you are expecting a guest, hosting a special event, or making a change to your lifestyle in the near future.
Budget your money. How much money are you hoping to spend on your overall project? Remember when coming up with your budget that it’s very important to build in a 10 to 15 percent cushion to protect you from unexpected issues, such as water damage, unseen vent stacks, and black mold.
Brainstorm. To develop a design for your bathroom remodel, you should brainstorm a list of changes, fixes, and additions you want achieved. Think about how you use your bathroom—do you rush in and rush out, or do you like to linger in the bath with candles and a book? What does your dream bathroom look like, and what appliances and special features would it have? Use your personal preferences to determine what your existing space lacks and guide your dream bathroom design.
Choose the right materials. Your bathroom floor, walls, counters, and other surfaces will play a big role in the design scheme. It’s important to choose materials that suit your taste, but also ones that will be able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. Porcelain, stainless steel, granite, and quartz are all popular choices that are attractive, durable, and easy to clean.
Go for water-efficient appliances. Water-efficient appliances might cost a bit more upfront, but can end up saving you money in the long run. There are a variety of water-efficient showerheads, toilets, and faucets on the market today that are designed to be 20 percent more efficient than federal standards. – Cole Builders
