Of the major home remodeling projects you can take on, bathroom remodeling has the second highest return on investment of any renovation you can do in your home. It is right below kitchen remodeling in terms of ROI.
A bathroom remodel project can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars, to tens of thousands. It all depends on your budget, your home and your goals. No matter what your budget, your new bathroom has to satisfy two goals; increase its beauty and increase its function.
Here are 8 areas you need to consider when it comes time to add on or upgrade your master bath or any bathroom in your home for that matter.
The first thing you are going to notice when you walk into your new bathroom are cabinets. New cabinets improve your bathroom almost instantly by not only adding a new design element to the room, but the added benefit of utility by increasing storage area and overall functionality.
Even the most expensive cabinet upgrades can look terrible if you don’t take some time selecting the right hardware. New hardware will make a huge difference, and with thousands of style options available, you can truly create a custom look that you love! In fact, it is amazing how a nice set of hardware will make even a mediocre cabinet look high end.
New bathroom fixtures, including faucets and sinks etc should be chosen to fit in with the style of the cabinetry and the overall look. You don’t want to put modern fixtures in with elegant old fashioned cabinetry and hardware. And make sure you are choosing your fixtures with the idea of usage. Nothing makes a fantastic bathroom remodeling project go bad than poorly chosen fixtures that don’t function well.
Flooring / Tile
There is no better flooring solution for a bathroom other than tile. Usually bathrooms aren’t that large, so the cost difference over other options will not even be that significant. Tile, like paint, accent items and trim, have the ability to make or break your remodel, so make sure you pick the flooring solution that looks great and fits with the rest of the room.
Creating storage options in your remodeling plan is always a great investment. Bathrooms never seem to have enough storage, but by making sure your project plans for it and your budget allows, you can get small items out of your way, and create an attractive display in your new space.
Adding a big mirror to your bathroom will accomplishes a few things; Firstly, it has a utilitarian use by allowing you to get ready with ease, and secondly, it will make your bathroom, no matter what size it is, look larger.
If your bathroom is bright, it doesn’t matter if it is small. It will feel bright and comfortable. There are many choices of different bathroom lights available that can make your new bathroom shine while keeping your budget in mind.
Tub or Shower
Ever dream of ending your day in a whirlpool tub? Since Jacuzzis and whirlpool tubs come in many different sizes and shapes, they will fit into any spot where an existing tub fits, but with much more enjoyment over a standard tub or shower stall.
These are just the main items to consider when starting a bathroom remodeling project. What you wind up with will depend on your budget and goals.
