Bathroom remodeling tips & suggestions

You will find that your bathroom remodeling project will be an excellent investment. First, most experts will tell you that these rooms set the tone for the entire house and that they will increase your home value by over 60%. They’ll also tell you that if you’re planning to sell, you should know that nothing makes a potential buyer run faster than a dingy, cluttered bath with broken tile, a floor badly in need of repair, and an odd layout.

The average cost of this renovation is $9,000 to $11,000, but it can be as little as much as is needed to make your dreams a reality. It doesn’t need to be a complete top-to-bottom renovation where walls are broken and plumbing moved. Just by installing a new tub and shower surround and adding a well-designed lighting scheme, you can enhance the room considerably.

Tip #1: Gorgeous tile for a breathtaking bathroom

Tile is both aesthetic and functional, the latter because it protects walls from water and toothpaste smudges. Tiles come in all colors, shapes, and sizes, and you can mix and match them to add your unique design, spots of color, texture, and various price points. Some great, affordable looks include: Combining metallic colors and ribbed subway tiles; installing a glass tile shower with marble tile floors for a serene spa atmosphere; or installing a straight edge subway tile on your tub surround with a coordinating chevron floor.

Tip # 2: Make sure the bathroom countertop and sink are in proportion

The average bathroom countertop is between 32-inches and 34-inches off the floor. If you choose, say, an above-the-counter vessel, it’s going to be uncomfortable and hard to reach. You may need to lower the counter a little, so you’re not straining to wash your face.

Tip #3: Have a well-designed lighting scheme

Every area needs different lighting, including the shower and tub areas. The room still needs to feel well designed and cohesive, however. To ensure that light is distributed evenly, select a combination of ambient light, task, and accent, which is solely decorative, highlighting the bathroom's architectural features and decor.
