Bathroom Remodeling & Design Tips Wednesday, May 09, 2018

If you are thinking about having your bathroom remodeled, it is important to keep some professional tips in mind. Bathrooms are one of the most commonly renovated spaces in a home, but if they are not approached cautiously, they can be costly and difficult to complete.

Follow these seven expert tips to make sure your bathroom remodeling project goes smoothly!

1. Know your budget upfront.

The size of your bathroom, the quality of the materials, and the contractor you choose will all make an impact on your remodeling budget. Knowing what your budget is upfront will help to make selecting materials easier and give your designer a clear course of action during the remodel.

2. Understand standard bathroom element dimensions.

Understanding the standard sizes for all basic bathroom components, such as bathtubs, sinks, toilets, and vanities will help effectively plan your new amenities.

3. Splurge on some high-end materials.

Most bathrooms are just a small portion of a household. While splurging on the entire space could quickly add up, putting your extra pennies into just a few, strategic upgrades could make a big difference in the final results. Search for wall coverings, floor coverings, or countertops more on the higher-end of quality, that will not break your budget, but will add a touch of luxury to your space.

4. Keep your color scheme in sync with your bathroom size.

Do not make a small bathroom appear smaller by adding a dark color scheme to the space. A smaller area should use a lighter color palette to keep it looking open. Choose colors that fall in the white or cream range to open the bathroom up.

5. Stay with neutral elements.

Colored elements get outdated fast. Within a few years, your trendy blue tub might not look so hot! Stick with toilets and tubs in whites or creams for a timeless, classic look. If you would like to add a touch of trendiness, choose sink and shower fixtures in a current metal. These days, in the Plant City, Lakeland, and Winter Haven areas, stainless steel, brushed nickel, and black are trendy options to upgrade your bathroom look.

6. Choose the right flooring.

Keep an eye on the size of the tiles you select for your bathroom. Knowing the difference between imperial sizes and metric sizes, and which measurement system should be used is important. Using the wrong sizing can cause some serious issues with the installation. Additionally, porcelain, ceramic, and stone tile are all classic options for your bathroom. Either one of those tile materials would make a great addition to your remodel.

7. Install multiple steam dissipation options in your bathroom.

Bathrooms that have no way to break down the steam of a shower can easily grow mold and mildew in the walls from the resulting moisture. Remove steam, before it becomes a problem, by installing multiple ways for it to escape. If possible, add both a fan and an operable window into the bathroom.

Stick to your budget and make the necessary changes during your bathroom remodel that will improve functionality, offer a luxurious space, and add value to your home. Call (863) 647-1800 and use the professional team members at True Builders to make sure that your project is done right.
