Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Your bathroom might need a remodel if it reminds you of decades past, if plumbing parts are leaking, if the floor or walls are cracked and peeling, or if there are signs of mold.  Another good time to remodel a bathroom is when it’s time to put your house on the market.  Simple updates can go a long way like replacing the cabinet hardware, getting a new mirror, or swapping out the decorative light fixtures.  Very often a remodel is more involved and that’s when you know it’s time to call a professional.

Considering a bathroom remodel?  Get inspired by searching images on Pinterest, Instagram, magazines or blogs.  Hire an interior designer to help refine your ideas and create a space that is truly unique and reflects your personality.  You’ll be amazed at the ideas a good designer can come up with that you may never have thought of.  Even if you are a creative person, having a partner to brainstorm ideas with will always result in a more impressive end result.

Approach your remodeling project as a whole instead of looking at each part individually.  For example, if you find a floor tile you love and a vanity that makes you excited and later a faucet that piques your interest, they might not all look good together.  When you design the bathroom as one space the finished product will be much more balanced and cohesive.  Another example would be if you find a tile you’d love to use in your shower, it might make more of an impact to have it installed in a pattern or add a few other tiles to accentuate the original selection.

A few bathroom features worth noticing are freestanding tubs; wainscot, shiplap and other moldings; metal details on shower enclosures; colorful vanities; gold toned metal finishes; patterned tiles; crisp white walls or even vibrant wallpapers.
