Remodeling should be a joy, not an inconvenience.
Remodeling your bathroom can be a great way to give life to a room that helps you relax and refresh. It’s a room you’ll use daily, so an update not only increases the appearance but gives you an incredible return on investment.
Aspects to Consider
Layout – Keeping the existing layout of a bathroom is often the most cost-effective to go about a remodel but analyze the way you use your current bathroom, and how the layout fits your lifestyle.
Maintenance & Cleaning– The bathroom is notorious for moisture, which can bring along mold and mildew growth. Look to choose low maintenance surfaces that don’t show water spots easily and are non-porous, which does not allow water to be absorbed or get trapped.
Design – Implementing an interior designer is great for ensuring you get the most out of your space. With the many materials and finishes that will go into the final product, it is comforting to know an expert is there to have your back who is knowledgeable on what looks great and functions well together.
Wall-mounted Fixtures – Small bathroom you’d like to feel larger? Floating vanities and toilets are great ways to free up floor space and make a compact space feel a little bit bigger.
Storage – Aside from vanities and closets, wall niches and shelving are great ways to add storage space for towels or toiletries.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Will our daily routine be dramatically impacted during the renovation?
Answer: During your remodel, we try our best to be the least intrusive as possible to your lifestyle and daily routine. If the bathroom being redone is the only one in your house, we’ll do what we can to keep it functioning as long as possible and schedule with that in mind.
We will set up dust barriers and air scrubbers to help minimize the disturbance on other parts of the home. We will seek to use alternate entrances where possible and protect any floors as needed. (Check out our blog on Home Protection & Cleanliness).
Question: How can I prevent moisture problems in my bathroom?
Answer: We suggest installing a high-powered bath fan that exhausts to the exterior. If you tend to take steamy showers, leave the bath fan running after your shower for at least 30-60 minutes.
Another suggestion would be to get your water tested. Sediment and contaminants in your water can cause discoloration to your shower or fixtures, leaving a hard to clean maintenance problem. See our blog on Getting Your Water Tested. Choose non-porous materials where possible, which do not trap moisture and prevent bacteria from building up.
Question: Should we hire a designer for our bathroom?
Answer: We highly suggest involving an interior designer for your project. They not only help with the overall aesthetic of the bathroom, but they maximize the functionality to fit your lifestyle.
Homeowners are often overwhelmed with the many decisions and details involved with transforming just a small space. Having a team to guide you makes the process a lot more
relaxing and enjoyable.
During the design stage of your project, we’ll pair you with an architect or designer that best fits your needs. You will be able to meet at various design showrooms to see selections in
person for tile, vanities, fixtures and more. Designers are experts in pairing materials that look natural together and choosing ones that will pair well with your lifestyle.
