A great bathroom can transform your experience at home, offering a spa atmosphere or making your guests more comfortable. Redesigning or constructing a bathroom offers the chance to upgrade your major components, but even smaller projects can make the room wholly new.
From full-scale demo projects to face-lifts and more, we can help with guiding you along the way as you make decisions about your bathrooms. Here are 24 tips to get the ball rolling:
- Make a list of your favorite and least favorite elements of your current bathroom before beginning a new project.
- Set a comfortable budget after researching some approximate costs.
- Keep a balance of form and function in mind when imagining a bathroom makeover or redesign.
- Costs aren’t just about materials and labor; ingenious design can help make a new bathroom even more affordable.
- Remember that it’s hard to ever have too much bathroom storage.
- Consider open shelving instead of fixed storage solutions, both for style and space versatility.
- Custom fixtures and installations may cost more, but can be more than worth it to achieve both design standards and efficient use of space.
- For style help, try beginning with a theme or color scheme, but also consider choosing a major appliance first and designing around it.
- Have fun with themes! Perhaps a superhero theme to a playful children bathroom, or a modern theme for a classic mid-century feel.
- If you might sell the home soon, consider achieving a unique theme with smaller, replaceable fixtures and accessories.
- When smaller changes won’t suffice, a full bathroom demo offers a clean slate.
- Interesting bathroom flooring transforms the room and sets a tone
- Depending on the plumbing, full makeovers can include moving sinks, tubs, and toilets.
- Create a relaxing atmosphere with a freestanding or claw-foot tub.
- Tub-shower combos can provide easy function for daily use as well as creating a spa effect.
- Find inspiration for wow-factor shower designs that make a statement.
- Pedestal sinks are beautiful, but if you want extra storage space look into console and counter-top options.
- Decorative sink bowls can offer style and personality; remember there are many options besides enamel.
- Many toilet options exist; unique shapes and styles add to the room’s personality and offer various space-saving and water-usage characteristics.
- A colored toilet lid helps add style and personality without committing to a non-white toilet.
