Bathroom Remodeling and Renovations
Bathroom remodeling and bathroom renovations are a beautiful way to update your home and increase its value. One of the smallest rooms in your house, the bathroom handles some of the most sensitive activities. For that reason, it is important to carefully consider the bathroom as your next home improvement project. It offers a great return on your investment and your updates can be enjoyed by family and guests alike for years to come. Bathroom remodeling and bathroom renovations may increase the value of your home, but more importantly, they will increase the efficiency and quality of your lifestyle.
Your bathroom is the one room in your home that everyone will use. You want it to appear clean and up to date, but it is also important that it is laid out in a way that maximizes the use of such a small space. A larger scale project, bathroom remodeling is the most custom option for redesigning your home, compared to bathroom renovations, however, both bathroom remodeling and bathroom renovations will provide you with opportunities to personalize your bathroom.
Bathroom remodeling allows you, as the homeowner, the freedom to restructure your bathroom in a way that fits your family’s needs, all while matching your personal style. The level of construction involved can vary, but there is always some reworking of the use of your space. If the current layout of your bathroom does not offer the flow and functionality that you desire, you may want to take on a bathroom remodeling project.
It is important to consider what factors are of top priority in your bathroom. If you are remodeling the hall bathroom that all the kids use, do you need space for your youngest children to store all of their bath toys? Or do your teenage daughters each need their own vanity mirror to make morning easier on the whole family? If your bathroom remodeling is happening in the master bathroom, do you want to create a serene, spa-like getaway? You may need to remove the shower stall to make room for a claw foot soaker tub. If you are focusing on the space-saving practicality of your bathroom, you might move the toilet to the other side of the sink to accommodate a larger linen closet.
Whatever the intentions of your bathroom remodeling, you will be faced with many options for personalization along the way. When you take your room back to its bones, you give yourself a blank slate to create a piece of architectural art in your home. It is an exciting time to focus on everything from the larger footprint of your bathroom to the smallest of details in your design choices. Bathroom remodeling is the most custom way to transform your high-traffic room into an efficient, updated space that adds to the beauty of your home. If you are not in need of full scale bathroom remodeling, you can still achieve that polished, fresh look through bathroom renovations. The same possibilities for personalization exist, without the level of construction involved in bathroom remodeling.
When you are already pleased with the layout of your home’s bathrooms, bathroom renovations allow you to update the fixtures and make style changes to reflect your current tastes and preferences. Bathroom renovations involve making the features of your bathroom new again. If your tub has seen lots of use from kids who love the outdoors and a dog who always finds a mess, you might want to replace it with a brand new clean tub. While you are at it, why not install new faucets and a light fixture to freshen up the place? Heard about those heated toilet seats and towel warmers? Or are you intrigued by the rainfall shower heads and waterfall sink faucets? Bathroom renovations are a fun way to spruce up the necessities and splurge on the luxuries you have always been interested in trying.
Bathroom renovations can also lean toward more a construction project. If you still have the original flooring or cabinetry, you might consider laying some new tile and purchasing a new vanity. Being a source of lots of moisture, and the occasional splashing, you will want to replace any drywall that is showing signs of water damage or mold during your bathroom renovations. Again, the options are endless and the potential is unlimited. You have the opportunity in bathroom renovations to blend your unique style with the function you desire in your bathrooms.
As different as each individual family, your needs are just as unique as your lifestyle and activities. Every room in your home should reflect your personality and promote your well-being. Whether you are considering bathroom remodeling or bathroom renovations, you know what you want and you know you can turn to a trusted professional to turn your dreams into your dream home.
