Most homeowners know to research their remodeling company and set a budget. However, if you’re looking for some bathroom remodeling tips from an experienced remodeler, keep reading. We have five we share with anyone looking to remodel.
Tip # 1 – Quality Matters
Most homeowners only ever want to remodel any space in their home once. That’s why choosing quality materials really matters. Cheap cabinetry won’t hold up to bathroom moisture. Inexpensive faucets will need replacing sooner. Spending a little more now will lead to many more years of a great looking bathroom.
Tip #2 – You Don’t Have to Include a Tub
We recommend that your home have at least one tub, however, if you are remodeling your master bathroom and can’t remember the last time you used your tub, consider removing it. If you could use that space for something you really want, like a large walk-in shower or second vanity. You’ll love your new space more when you eliminate the tub.
Tip # 3 – Proper Lighting & Ventilation Are Key
If you can, consider natural lighting in your bathroom. Adding a window or solar tube is one of the bathroom remodeling tips our clients often thank us for. Additional light makes the room feel bigger and natural light is a great way to do that. Because it’s already hot and humid in the Tampa area, proper ventilation will cut down on mold and mildew growth in your bathroom.
Tip #4 – Choose Color Carefully
Just like anywhere else in your home, darker colors will make the space feel smaller. Look at the size of your bathroom, if it’s always felt small in the current color, go lighter and brighter. If you want bold contrast, consider adding a dark element like a vanity or dark countertop while keeping the rest of the elements light.
Tip # 5 – Avoid Too Many Trends
What makes a trend work in any space is making it special. For example, if you’re loving the recent resurgence of gold faucets and fixtures, go for it. However, choosing that, a vessel sink, and the trend of a mosaic feature wall, may all be too much. Keep that special element special and make it a focal point.
