Have you thought about redesigning your bathroom? Have you ever gotten to the planning stage?
One of the first bathroom issues people look at is their bathtub or shower. This is your chance to get rid of that old rectangle bath or rejuvenate your tub…maybe turn it into a whirlpool. Occasionally people do hire “bathroom designers” who specialize in bathroom styles and take time to plan out the bathroom that fits in the space provided. After that, homeowners turn to us to do the actual work.
Once you have effectively determined your new design, the challenging decisions start to crop up – cabinets, counters, single or double restroom sinks, bath tubs, selecting color scheme, vanities, and every added element that helps set the style of your bathroom. In the bath remodeling business, we are seeing larger tiles become more popular possibly in an effort to make the tiny space appear to be larger. We have also seen bathrooms with an entire wall behind the sink as a mirror adding the visual effect of a larger space. But, when you start looking at all these elements, the cost starts to scare people off.
Even before getting into the planning stage, consider this – a bathroom upgrade can help with two things: your sense of comfort in your own home and increasing the value of your home when you are ready to sell it. Of course, there is also the “you have no options” scenario when you are dealing with an older home.
