Bathroom Remodel Tips & Tricks

These days, our bathroom is more than just a place to "do our business.” It’s really become an integral part of the home — providing some much needed relaxation and serenity to our often-crazy lives.

So for those of us with less than functional medicine cabinets, and pink shower tiles that have seen better days — maybe it’s time for an upgrade?

If you’re considering undergoing a bathroom renovation, here are a few tips to consider:

 

Understand Cost

As with any renovation project, it’s important to manage your expectations when it comes to cost. Even though bathrooms tend to be on the smaller side — all those tiles, knobs and light fixtures can really add up. Do your research, and plan out a thoughtful budget before you disconnect that ol' commode.

 

Light Right

A well-lit lighting scheme can really add to the overall serenity and practicality of your bathroom. Incorporate a mix of task, accent, ambient, and decorative lighting for the ultimate spa-like retreat.

 

Don’t Be Vain With Your Vanity

It may be tempting to go with the prettiest (and least practical) vanity, but this key feature is integral to your bathroom design. Ideally you should have a happy combination of storage, aesthetics and durability.

 

Splurge & Save

Even the most upscale interior designers will tell you that a bathroom is a great place to mix high and low. Splurging on a few higher-end materials in small quantities can make your more basic finishes seem a lot more luxurious.

 

Tastefully Transition

You might be planning on a tile floor for your new bathroom, but the hallway or room it’s connected to will likely have something totally different. To ensure the transition between these two spaces is seamless, be sure to plan ahead by testing a variety of combinations.
