The effects of remodeling your bathroom go far beyond simply making it look more appealing.
Research from the National Association of Realtors confirms that more than 75 percent of homeowners who remodel their bathrooms want to be in their homes more. More than 65 percent say they actually have more fun after a bathroom remodeling project.
But, wait…there’s more!
The data also shows that, if done properly, at least 50 percent of your investment is recouped with the increase in your home’s value.
One of the beauties of deciding on a bathroom remodeling project is that it can be as little or expansive as you wish. You can gut the entire room and start again, or merely add a few updated features.
Here are some of the most popular bathroom remodeling projects that pack the most punch.
Here at Columbus Bath Design, we recommend using tile, vinyl or wood. Another good contemporary option is to include a radiant-heat mat beneath the flooring for a more comfortable feeling year-round.
This is where the decision to hire Columbus Bath Design really pays off. In most cases, we’re able to have your bathroom remodeling project completed in just one day. If the project is extensive, the workload may spill over into a second day, but that’s not the norm.
Here’s how we like to work:
Keep in mind that at any point in the project you can make adjustments. We’re prepared for this and can usually make changes on the fly.
The first step is to have a clear understanding of what you want in your newly designed bathroom. For inspirational ideas, check out our online video gallery. There, you’ll find a host of short videos that guide you on the starting process.

In spite of all the knocks against it, spring cleaning is a fantastic way to shake off the winter chills, freshen up your home and get a head start on the often frantic warmer months ahead. With the first day of spring (Thursday, March 19) rapidly approaching, it’s time to get moving.
While cleaning decks, patios and other outdoor living areas are important, your bathroom definitely needs attention.
When you think about it, it’s easy to recognize the bathroom as being the most important room in your home.
When you get down to it, the bathroom is far more than a personal maintenance room. It’s your own fortress of solitude, and well worth the effort and elbow grease associated with spring cleaning.
You probably already have a basic cleaning kit containing spray bottles, baking soda and all-purpose cleaners. That’s a good start.
Other essential items for specifically cleaning your bathroom include:
It’s important to make sure you have all these items before you begin cleaning. Each time you have to leave the room to buy another product is an opportunity to lose track or become distracted.
Before you get started, open the window to let in the fresh air. Even though it’s still a bit chilly outside, you’ll need the open window for air circulation and to keep you comfortable while cleaning.
As for cabinets, you should be able to use your water/vinegar mixture.
You can do both! In fact, through the process of decluttering and cleaning, you’ll have a much better understanding of the amount of room you have in your bathroom.
Use this time to think about what your ideal bathroom would look like. For inspirational ideas, you’re always welcome to visit our online gallery that shows some of our most recent work. You can also visit our Columbus showroom for in-person inspiration.
Here at Columbus Bath Design, we realize the thought of a remodeling project can be daunting – but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Our personable and friendly designers will be happy to work with you, listen to your ideas, and find the perfect solution for you and your budget.

Fashions change with the times – even for bathrooms. While you may not see them on a paparazzi-lined runway, the trends for a modern, functional and vibrant bathroom are essential components for homeowners wanting a bathroom upgrade.
In this article, we’ll give you the inside scoop on the latest in bathroom remodeling trends for 2020.
It sure does! Even though your bathroom is one of the most functional rooms in your home, it often gets lost in the shuffle when it’s time for a re-do.
For proof, consider the classic speckled granite counters, cabinetry and trim. They definitely rocked the 90s, but they look hopelessly stale in 2020.
As Bob Dylan so famously said, “The times, they are a changin.’”
Even though they’re usually among the smallest rooms in homes, a bit of forethought and planning is required before remodeling. In most cases, plumbing, electrical and carpentry work all come into play during bathroom renovations.
Wall-mounted sinks and vanities: From freeing up much-needed space to making cleanups easier, a sink or vanity mounted on the wall is a stylish solution for small bathrooms.
Smart technology in the bathroom: As technology continues to advance, just about every aspect of our lives are made easier. We’re seeing a noticeable jump in smart technology for bathrooms. This includes voice-activated lighting, toilets with seat warmers, lids that open automatically, built-in deodorizers, electronically controlled showers, and more. Who knew “going” could be so stylish?
Electric towel warmers: Doesn’t a warm, fluffy towel sound incredibly cozy when you step out of the shower?
New tiling shape options: Say “buh-bye” to the basic subway or large format tile of yesteryear. Now, bathroom tiles are far more customizable in terms of shape and colors.
Clear shower doors: Even though these minimalist shower doors began growing in popularity several years ago, they’re still very much in style. The even better news is that manufacturers are hip to the trend, and have responded with providing a host of design options.
As you look at the trends above, one thing becomes obvious: massive furnishing is out, and console-like vanities and minimalism is in.
We do one thing, and we do it very well: bathroom remodeling. Throughout our more than 20 years of service, our team has been at the forefront of knowing the current trends and those on the horizon.
Our process is a simple one: we listen to your ideas and needs, offer a bit of honest feedback and advice, then get to work on making the bathroom of your dreams a reality.
We realize that a remodeling project of any kind can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we invite you to visit our showroom at 8596 Cotter Street in Lewis Center on the north side of Columbus. It’s a great way to discover inspirational ideas and to see what’s available.
Our team members are happy to guide you through all the design options so that you can get a look and feel for the best possible options.
After agreeing on a final plan, we’ll then visit your home to see if there are any unique situations that need to be identified.
Finally, we’ll schedule a day and time for the installation that works best for you.
Each project has its own peculiarities, but we are able to complete most projects within a single day.
If we think it’ll take a second day, based upon our experience we’ll be able to tell you well before the work actually begins. We assure you that the same two installers who begin work on your bathroom remodeling project will stay with it until the job is completed.
Because we believe money should never be an obstacle to having the bathroom of your dreams, Columbus Bath Design is proud to offer financing options that will fit any budget.
So, whether you simply need a new tub, vanity or a complete remodeling of your bathroom, we’re ready to get working for you.
Whether you call it a lavatory, washroom, the office or the loo, the odds are good your day begins and ends in the bathroom. Because you spend so much time in that one room, remodeling it to suit your tastes and comfort makes perfect sense.
Here at Columbus Bath Design, we do one thing: bathroom remodeling…and we do it very well. We have the expertise, training and materials to transform your bathroom wishes into reality.
The short process of getting the bathroom you want begins with our completely free, no-obligation estimate.
In this post, we’ll give insight on what you can expect during our free in-home estimates, our overall bathroom remodeling process, and the compelling reasons for why a bathroom renovation is a smart investment.
Many of our customers get inspirational ideas by visiting our showroom at 8596 Cotter Street in Lewis Center on the North Side of Columbus.
If you already have an idea of what you want, call us at 614-907-4558.
During our conversation, we’ll listen and talk about your bathroom remodeling needs. Because we value transparency, our feedback and advice will be completely honest.
Once everyone is on the same page with the goal, we’ll then schedule an in-home visit so that our installers can size-up the project in person. We pride ourselves on being as non-intrusive as possible.
During this stage, our designers will also work with you to hone your selection of fixtures, including:
Keep in mind that our estimates are completely itemized for your convenience, so you can adjust the plan on the fly.
We’ll be happy to take your reservation via phone (614-907-4558), email or online.
Because we know you’re busy, we welcome appointments throughout the week and during the evenings.
We’ve been remodeling bathrooms for more than 20 years, and we have everything down to a streamlined process. Once your in-home estimate is completed, we’re usually ready to get to work.
Finalization of plans: We’re accustomed to last-minute changes, so if you have any final touches before the project begins in earnest, our flexibility makes it easy for them to be added.
Scheduling of the installation: Once all the materials and plans are locked down, we’ll schedule a specific time and day for the actual installation that suits your timetable. Remember, we do not hire subcontractors. Instead, Columbus Bath Design team members carry out all of the work.
Before the actual installation, our designers and installers will huddle to discuss any unique challenges and solutions on your project. This step enables us to hit the ground running once our installers arrive at your home.
Day of installation: Two installers will arrive on-site and stay until the job is complete. While most of our bathroom remodeling projects take only one day, some take two days to complete. During the consultation stage, we’ll give you our best estimate on how long the project should take. If it does take longer than one day, the same two installers who worked on your project the first day will return on the second.
Whether you merely need a new vanity, new tiling or a complete bathroom makeover, the decision to invest in the remodeling of your bathroom is a wise one.
You increase your home’s value: Throughout its life, your home will experience wear and tear. Because of the moisture created by hot water, it’s likely your bathroom will appear older than the rest of the house. Improving the condition of your bathroom is a proven way to boost the overall value of your home.
You save money with new, energy-efficient upgrades: Did you know that nearly half of all daily water use for the average home comes from toilet and shower use? New showerheads, toilets and other fixtures are designed to save you money in water and energy costs.
Any plumbing issues are addressed: Plumbing problems in the bathroom can easily lead to more intrusive – and expensive – repairs on down the road. During your bathroom renovation, any plumbing issues will be taken care of during the installation.
A cozy getaway is created: We all need a place to “get away from it all.” By remodeling your bathroom, an easily accessible and relaxing escape is always within your reach.
Mold issues are eliminated: The environment created by a steady flow of water creates the perfect breeding ground for mold. With new tile and grout, your mold issues are removed.
We understand that a remodeling project in your home can be an intimidating thought. Using our more than two decades of professional experience, our bathroom remodeling projects are smooth, affordable and usually completed in just one day.
Since everyone has their own style, our designers will work with you to find the perfect bathroom solution that fits your flair and budget.
