From the floorplan to the lighting, and everything in between; the options for your bathroom remodel or renovation are endless! While creating your dream bathroom is exciting, there are some important things to consider.  

Continue reading as we discuss a few key things to think about before a bathroom remodel or renovation. 

Your budget

Your budget is the main factor in how extensive your bathroom remodel or renovation can be. If you’re looking for a less involved, cost-effective way to remodel your bathroom, you may consider a simple, budget friendly update such as painting or cabinet resurfacing.

If you’re looking to reconfigure your bathroom or do an extensive remodel or renovation, the project will likely be more involved.

What materials to choose

While the materials in your bathroom serve a purpose, the type of materials you choose can also be used to reflect your style! 

Some materials you should consider include:

There are many different options of flooring out there, but the key is finding the type of flooring that is best for your home. In a bathroom, you should definitely choose a durable, slip- and water-resistant material. 

From the shower, to the sink, to the door handles, and more––you can customize which type of fixtures are the best fit for your needs. If you are looking to make your home handicap accessible, choosing lever-style handles may be the way to go.

The purpose of a backsplash is to protect your walls from water damage, however, they can also add a decorative element! Backsplashes typically come in tile, glass, stone, and more and are available in many different designs, colors, and styles to best suit your preferences.

Whether it be drawers, cabinets, shelving, etc., making sure you have enough storage space in your bathroom is key. However, you also want to be sure it’s designed efficiently so that you can maximize your square footage.

Lighting is a necessity, but it doesn’t have to be boring! If you love natural light, a sky light could be a great option. You can also choose from many different kinds of artificial lighting such as ceiling lights, wall sconces, vanity lighting and more––the options are endless.

Who to hire 

When doing any home improvement project, it’s important to remember that choosing a lower price point over quality workmanship could end up costing you more time, money, and energy in the long run. 

Working with an accredited, licensed, and insured contractor is key to ensuring that the job is done correctly, safely, and up to standard.
