A bathroom remodel is a worthwhile investment for homeowners everywhere. No matter the current condition of your bathroom, a bathroom makeover will make washing and spending time in this room much more enjoyable for your family. Keep reading as we share our top tips for a bathroom renovation and how to get the most value out of this project.
1. Create a Budget for Your Bathroom Remodel
Before you start to get in touch with bathroom remodeling companies, it’s worth taking the time to do some research about how much you need to spend on this type of project. Bathroom renovations can be as expensive as you would like, based on the fixtures you want to add and how ambitious your project will be. Of course, there are ways in which you can cut costs, and our team will be here to help you get the best value for money possible for this project. Think about the long-term value that this project will add to your home and decide how much you are willing to invest in the work.
2. Create a New Bathroom Layout
Once you have an idea about how much you’d like to spend on bathroom remodeling contractors, then it’s time to start making your ideas for your dream bathroom come to be a reality. The first thing to consider is whether you want a shower, bath, or both of these in your bathroom, as this will impact the layout of the room. You can then work with our team to create a bathroom layout which makes as few or as many changes as you’d like to your existing setup.
3. Lighting Options
Bathroom lighting comes with many different options. Some people prefer natural lighting, whereas others want to add artificial lighting into their bathroom. Think about the amount of natural light that your room already has from your windows. However, if your bathroom has only limited natural light, then consider adding some artificial lights to improve the aesthetic of the room
4. Luxury Additions to Your Bathroom Makeover
Bathroom remodeling contractors have the ability to make your bathroom as simple or as luxurious as you would like. By adding a few simple touches such as heated floors or a heated towel rail, you’ll find this is a room that your family enjoy spending time in more than ever before. Some of these additions won’t set you back a fortune, so they are well worth investing that little bit of extra money in to completely transform the atmosphere of your room.

5. Choose Long-Lasting Bathroom Materials
When taking the time to invest in a bathroom renovation, we encourage you to think about choosing durable materials. While you might think cutting corners will help to make the initial cost of the project lower, in the long run, you are better off choosing long-lasting materials and fixtures that will save you from needing to renovate the room again in the near future. We’ll help to recommend the best options for you, such as porcelain for tiles and cast-iron for bathtubs.
6. Bathroom Accessibility
While you may be in good health now, when planning a bathroom remodel, you’ll want to keep in mind your future needs. It’s never too early to think about making rooms in your home more accessible, especially if you may have loved ones or visitors who could have different access needs to you. A bathtub might be the perfect option for you today, but in the future, you may find that a walk-in shower is more practical. There are so many accessible bathroom design options today, many of which will still provide you with the modern aesthetic you are looking for. The best bathroom remodeling companies will work with you to understand your needs and ensure that your bathroom will be suitable for you and your family to use for years to come.
7. Tricks to Make Your Bathroom Feel Larger
For most of us, the bathroom is by far the smallest room in our homes. If you find that your bathroom feels small and dingy, the good news is that you can play with light and materials to make the room feel more welcoming and somewhere you’ll enjoy spending time. Focus on adding extra light fixtures to the room if you feel it seems too dark, as this will give it a more airy feel. From there, look at adding lightly-painted fixtures and mirrors to the bathroom, which will help to reflect this natural light and make the room seem bigger. We recommend taking the less is more approach to your bathroom, so don’t clutter up the surfaces with too many toiletries or accessories that will make the room feel smaller and overwhelming.
8. Add a Pop of Color
While we typically recommend that you use neutral colors for your bathroom makeover, a pop of color can add more character and charm to the room. Once you’ve finished tiling the room or painting the walls, it’s time to choose a few fun accessories that will brighten up the space. Adding a small pop of color to the sink area or your shower can be a fun way to show off your personality to visitors. Even something as simple as brightly-colored towels on the towel rack will help to bring your bathroom to life in a whole new way and add the perfect finishing touch to your new bathroom.
