If you're looking for bathroom remodeling ideas, you might be feeling overwhelmed by the choices. Bathroom renovation magazines and websites are full of stunning designs that each look as lovely as the last. So which one is right for you? Many considerations go into creating a bathroom that makes you smile each time you look at it. We have narrowed it down to three of the most crucial ones.
1. Create a Budget
When you get the opportunity to transform your home into the exact style you want, you're making an investment in your property and yourself. Home and bathroom remodeling can cost as much as you let it, and without a solid budget, costs can spiral.
The solution is to research local custom building costs, set a realistic budget, and then try to stick to it. This is made easier if you choose a remodeling contractor or design-build firm that offers fixed pricing rather than estimates.
2. Choose the type of bathroom
Bathrooms come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and layouts. Chances are, you probably won't change the type of bathroom when you go to remodel. However, it's a good idea to look at all your options before you set your ideas in stone (or grout!). An experienced interior designer can help you see possibilities that you might have missed. For instance, a cramped half bath could be transformed into a luxurious master suite just by borrowing some space from a walk-in closet or bedroom.
3. Develop a bathroom layout
So you've settled on the type of bathroom you're installing or redoing (half or full bath, wet bath or standard). Now it's time to think about layout. Depending on the shape and size of the area you have to work with, there are countless variations in bathroom layout.
Important tip: Before you think about the aesthetics of your bathroom remodel, you have to nail down the layout.
Your designer can help by offering design consultations and creating a 3-D rendering of what your new bathroom will look like. In all, there is a lot that goes into a bathroom remodel and we encourage continuing the research. You want your home and living spaces to be the most comfortable!
