I love when a bathroom remodel project call comes in. Changing my customers home from what they have to what they want is very rewarding. I thought writing a blog post with common bathroom upgrades would assist in getting the design juices flowing. If you’re considering a bathroom remodel project, I hope you’ll consider giving us the opportunity work for you.
Keep the Bathtub or Replace with Tile Shower
Most realtors agree that you need a bathtub in the home. I’m of the opinion that as long as there’s a tub in the guest bath, you don’t need another one. I think it’s important to keep a tub in the home, many home buyers want a bathtub. I think a quality bathtub is still a great addition versus the old one piece fiberglass unit. Jetted tubs with a tile surround are great for many bathrooms. The great thing about tile is that it’s so easy to personalize to your space. Because tile is so personal, it is easy to compliment your decor.
Custom Tile Showers Best Bang for your Buck
A custom tile shower will give you the best return on your bathroom remodel project. When I bid on bathroom remodel work in Columbia, MO, I encourage my customers to consider tiled showers. I know every tiled shower is unique, no two showers are ever exactly the same. Tiled showers are so unique because they have to be assembled in your home. I think the best feature of a tiled shower is the way you can customize them. Even a small 3×5 shower is big enough for two people. My customers like recessed niches, custom benches and curbless showers. If a true spa experience is what you want, I would suggest looking into a steam generator. I can’t stress enough the importance of a proper shower build, read more about proper shower construction here.
Other Bathroom Remodel Ideas
I know I have spent a lot of time talking about tub surrounds and custom tile showers. One other topic I think we should look at is the rest of the bathroom. A major upgrade that is virtually invisible is a heated floor. A heated floor is a luxury, but one none of my customers has regretted purchasing. Key design elements to look for are consistency. Whatever design you choose, be sure to use that design everywhere possible. What I mean by that is your shower faucet and sink faucet should match. Most plumbing manufacturers even match the flush handle on your stool (a touch that won’t go unnoticed). All the metal trim in your bathroom should also be the same color and sheen. When I bid on a bathroom remodel consistency is something I focus on with you.
