Bathroom Remodeling Tips

7 Tips for Renovating a Small Bathroom

by Columbus Bath Design |February 15, 2022 |0 Comments | Bathroom Remodeling Tips |

Did you leave the small downstairs bathroom holding a bruised elbow, again? It is time to stop avoiding that tiny space and renovate it with a design that actually works for you, your family, and your guests. Use these tips to get your project rolling while avoiding some common pitfalls. If you are still struggling with creating a vision, pick up the phone and come visit the Columbus Bath Design showroom for inspiration.

Beautifully Designed Dark Bathroom

1. Define the Purpose of Your Small Bathroom

Before you start ripping out the old and buy that gorgeous vanity with the vessel sink that you’ve always wanted, you need to make a plan for your newly renovated bathroom. Who will use the small powder room under the stairs or the cramped extra bath in the basement?

A small half-bath off the living room will get a lot of foot traffic, but it won’t need tons of storage. The tiny ensuite in the master bedroom will cater to your needs, so plan for a medicine chest and a spot for bath bombs. A tight bathroom in the upstairs hall faces a huge challenge. It needs to pack in a shower, toilet, and sink while providing room for towels, cleaning supplies, and hair dryers.

Make a list of must-have fixtures and then add some wishes to the side.

2. Create a Plan with Enough Elbow Room for Comfortable Use

Measure out the old bathroom. Don’t forget to take the tape all the way to the back wall of the shower. Include any closets, because that space might be used for a spa tub.

Use an online room design tool or graph paper and start to position the new fixtures. You will need at least 21 inches of space between the front of the toilet and the wall for your knees. The same applies to the sink. A spacious bath features an average of 30 inches between fixtures and walls. By placing the toilet next to the tub or shower without a door, you get extra inches for elbows.

The doors for most bathrooms open into the room. Recover valuable space by opening it into the hall or opt for a sliding door.

3. Select Bathroom Fixtures that Fit into the Space

While you may think that every toilet is created equal, there are design options that open up floor space without sacrificing function. Hidden cisterns can be built into the wall. Smaller bowls are a smart choice when renovating the kids’ bathroom.

Discover huge amounts of space when you skip the vanity and opt for a wall-mounted compact sink. Using a small corner-mount sink can leave a few extra inches for a more comfortable experience.

Some shower enclosures are just 32-inches square, instead of the standard 60-inch tub length. Use the extra square feet for a shelving unit.

4. Consider a Wet-Room Design for Compact Three-Piece Bathrooms

Does it seem like no matter what you do, there is no room left to move in the shower? A hot trend in bathroom design that addresses this challenge is the wet-room approach. The floors, walls, and fixtures are waterproofed. The floor is sloped to drain, and you skip a shower door or curtain. The whole small bathroom becomes your shower. Just leave the towel outside.

5. Include Vertical and Hidden Storage Solutions to Improve Function

You skipped the giant vanity in favor of fitting a shower into the small bathroom. However, you still need a spot for toiletries, towels, and the shaving kit. Look up! While medicine chest mirrors may seem like an old-school approach, they still give you convenient storage space. Plan on installing a combination of shelves and cabinets over the toilet. Explore shower and tub enclosures at our showroom and find examples with cubbies sized right for shampoo and body wash.

6. Opt for a Single-Color Design for a Roomier Look

If you have ever visited a tiny bathroom in a vintage home, you may have been distracted by the mosaic floor, mismatched wall tile, wallpaper, and even curtains. Every time that new material and color is introduced into the room, it grabs the eye and breaks the bathroom up into smaller sections, which makes it feel cramped.

While choosing your fixtures, flooring, paint, tile, and even the trashcan, stick to a single light color with minimal or no repeating pattern. Aim for a unified appearance. Visitors will comment on the smart open feel, even if they have to shuffle to get around the sink.

7. Large Mirrors Create the Illusion of Open Space

Contemporary home design often features open-concept rooms. In small bathrooms, installing a large mirror that covers an entire wall instantly doubles the visual space. It captures the beautiful marble wall tiles and makes it look like the surface goes for miles. You also eliminate the need to fight over the mirror while putting on makeup or touching up your beard.

Planning & Budgeting for Your Bathroom Remodel

by Columbus Bath Design |July 15, 2021 |0 Comments | Bathroom Remodeling Cost, Bathroom Remodeling Tips | , ,

A bathroom remodel can be one of the bigger projects in the home. You’ll want to make sure that you spend your time and money wisely. A good plan is key to a good remodeling experience. Here’s what you need to know:

Create a Floor Plan

Your first step is to measure the space and sketch out a rough floor plan. Remember to note where plumbing fixtures and electrical outlets are. These can be moved, but it will increase the remodel’s time and expense.

While we’re at it, don’t just assume that everything is square. Verify with your tape measure. If you have an oddly shaped space, you may need to budget for custom built cabinets or a custom cut vanity.

If you want a big item like a jacuzzi bathtub, measure if it will fit through the doorway. Otherwise, your renovation may require creating a new doorway.

Now is a good time to pick out paint chips, tile samples, and the like. Hold the paint chips up to the wall in the bathroom. The colors you picked may look different in the light there instead of under the store’s unforgiving fluorescent bulbs.

Need inspiration? You can browse online galleries, visit showrooms, and search on social media. Share the images you like with your bath design service. They can help bring your vision to life.

Budget for Money and Time

Unexpected expenses can strike during any remodel. However, starting out with a budget can help keep things on the rails. You’ll want to consider both time and money expenses during this project.

Do some research or get quotes for common remodel expenses like:

  • removing old flooring
  • purchasing and installing new flooring
  • painting
  • installing new cabinets
  • changing out the fixtures and hardware
  • installing bathroom vanities
  • purchasing towels, shower curtains, etc.
  • installing lighting
  • removal of debris and hazardous materials
  • certain luxury items like radiant flooring involve multiple additional expenses, from wiring to sealing

Be sure to factor in ‘hidden’ expenses. These include sales taxes, delivery fees, and costs for a home inspection if required in your area.

One final trick is to take your budget and add ten percent. This gives you a nice cushion toward any unexpected expenses that may pop up.

Next, get an idea of your time budget for this remodel. These projects can take anywhere from one day to several weeks. The exact timeline depends on the scale of the project, the condition of the house, and the experience levels of the people you hire.

Keep in mind that if you do a full bathroom remodel, you or your contractor needs to coordinate the schedules of many different professionals. For instance, the electrician can only come in after the old walls are torn down, but before new walls get put up. You’ll need to factor this into your timeline.

Installation isn’t the only significant item in your time plan. If you’re having an exotic stone countertop cut to a custom size, this takes time to be crafted and transported. The same holds true for items like radiant floors and custom cabinetry.

You may also need to budget a few days before the bathroom’s fully usable. For instance, it can take a while during colder months for paint and sealants to fully dry.

Creative Ways to Save

There are a number of ways for a creative homeowner to trim their budget and stretch their dollars.

First, think about what needs to be replaced in the bathroom and what can stay if it’s refreshed. If your cabinetry’s in good condition, just getting a new vanity top put in can transport the look of the room. Meanwhile, shabby or out-of-fashion cabinets can get new life when you repaint them, replace the hardware, or put in new doors.

Depending on your personal style, you may be able to buy some unique and budget-friendly pieces in estate sales, antique stores, and so on. Extended families who are decluttering might pass on functional staples like shelving that tucks into the corner. Also, keep a sharp eye out for sales at local furniture or building supply stores.

If you’re planning a bigger job, get several quotes. If one number is significantly higher or lower than anyone else’s, there may be a good reason why. Investigate now to save down the line.

Plan of Attack

You’ve got a floor plan and a budget. Now it’s time to put those pieces together.

What’s your contingency plan while the bathroom’s out of operation?

Will you stay somewhere else during the renovations?

Are you going to remodel another room at the same time? For instance, do you want the bedroom re-done to coordinate with the bathroom?

When’s the right time for this remodel to happen?

Consider the weather and season. Remember that paint may dry slower when it’s cold. Big jobs may not be possible at all during the winter. If you’re short on time, see if your remodeling service offers accelerated or one-day schedules.

Reasons for a Tub to Shower Conversion

by Columbus Bath Design |November 24, 2020 |0 Comments | Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Tips

For many years, the most common, standard bathroom design was composed of a combination shower/tub. More recently, a new trend has emerged where the combo unit is replaced by modern, large showers that offer many benefits when compared to bathtubs.

Ranging from convenience to style to safety, showers not only add value to your home but can be better for you and your daily use. It’s a perfect combination – a more useful space that increases your home’s value, a win all around!

When considering a bathroom renovation, it’s important to consult with an expert designer, like those at the Columbus Bath Design. There are so many different styles and choices out there that expert guidance can mean the difference between a fantastic project and a ho-hum result.

What are the primary reasons to convert my bathtub into a shower?

Three of the most important reasons to convert your bathtub into a shower are safety and accessibility, style and design, and increased space and convenience.

Bathrooms are proven to be the place in your home where someone is likely to get hurt. Moisture on slick surfaces creates a hazard, and having a shower prevents the need for climbing in and out of your tub. While more likely to be a hazard to older people, even younger family members could be at risk.

Converting your bathtub into a shower is one way to significantly reduce this risk, particularly if you choose to go with a walk-in shower or curbless shower. Adding grab bars could also be a good idea if you anticipate older people using the shower.

It’s also important to keep in mind that home remodeling is not just about function, but should also include elements of style. The decision to convert your bathtub into a shower allows you to re-envision how you’d like your bathroom to look. You can choose from tile styles, colors, shapes, and patterns, and pick fixtures that change the design themes of your space. Adding shelves or shower niches can give you space to tuck your bath products away, getting them off counters and the floor.

Plus, converting your old bathtub into a shower has the added benefit of creating more space, giving you room to create a more comfortable shower. Having that extra space will help you relax more and enjoy your shower. And if you have a furry friend, washing your dog in a shower is far easier than picking them up to put in the tub.

What about health, cleanliness, and maintenance?

Three critical reasons to consider converting your bathtub into a shower are stress relief and health, increased cleanliness, and far less maintenance.

Converting to a larger shower will certainly increase your comfort level. But there’s no reason to rest on your laurels there! With a few design choices, you could reduce your stress level by turning your shower into your home spa.

Changes in technology have made this easier than you may think. Some easy choices are things like built-in Bluetooth speakers, multiple shower heads, or even a shower bench. More advanced design features include things like a steam shower – minor investments that can make a big difference.

When it comes to cleanliness, there is no way around the fact that bathtubs require a lot of cleaning. Grime and mineral deposits create an unhealthy appearance and need to be regularly scrubbed. Not only are showers easier to clean, but they are also easier to maintain. Tile surfaces are easy to regularly rinse, and when designed properly, you can reduce your regular maintenance needs to almost nothing at all. Imagine the savings in time and hassle!

While showers generally cause more humidity than a bathtub, they are less likely to cause mold or mildew growth because their vertical surfaces drain more quickly and dry faster than horizontal rims around a bathtub. Fewer nooks and crannies coupled with better drainage means that your shower has less of a chance at accumulating mold, soap scum, and hard water minerals, reducing the need for regular scrubbing.

Does a bathtub to shower conversion increase my home’s value?

Experts agree that a well-designed, modernized bathroom that offers a spa-like experience will significantly increase your home’s value. By making the right choices when you renovate your bathroom, you could see a big bump if you sell your home in the coming years.

It’s important to make sure that your design is in keeping with current trends. That’s where experts like the designers at Columbus Bath Design can help. They have their finger on the pulse of modern design and understand how to create a renovation plan that fits any budget. With all of the choices out there, it’s important to have a pro help guide you through the process.

Tips for Planning Your Dream Bathroom Remodel

by Columbus Bath Design |September 7, 2018 |1 Comments | Bathroom Remodeling Tips | , , , ,

Remodeling any part of your home can be fun to dream about. To actually get the results you want, however, takes a lot of planning. Here are some of our best tips for planning the remodel of your dreams:

Consider Your Needs

Are you sharing a master bath? Are you remodeling your own private bathroom? Or maybe you’re designing a bathroom space for a family of five?

Whatever your needs may be, it is important to narrow them down before beginning the remodeling process so that you can choose accessories for your space accordingly. For instance, a couple may want a large double vanity to efficiently get ready in the morning. However, for a large family, storage space may be a higher priority when redesigning.

Narrowing down your needs is the first step in crafting a plan for efficient use of your space and resources.

Do Your Homework

Getting ideas for your remodel can be as simple as reading reviews online or chatting with your neighbors who have already gone through the remodeling process. Visiting an in-person showroom is a perfect opportunity to get an idea of what remodeling options are available to you and talking to other homeowners can give you an idea of what’s possible.

Get Inspired

The sky is the limit when it comes to remodeling.  Even if you can’t make an in-person visit to a showroom, online searches can turn up hundreds of ideas for bathroom looks and styles – modern, traditional, or contemporary. Click through the Columbus Bath Design photo gallery to explore the unique bathrooms other Ohio homeowners have created.

Set Your Budget

Bathroom remodels can be done to fit budgets of any size, but nevertheless, it’s important to know what you can afford ahead of time. Create a realistic budget and begin to plan your remodeling fantasies around what you can comfortably afford.

What you have to work with will impact how much of your inspiration can be achieved, but don’t be discouraged—often, costs can be minimized by modifying your ideas. Our team will do everything we can to help you get all of your wants while not breaking the bank.  

Treat Yourself!

What makes this space a “dream” bathroom for you? Do you dream of marble- or stone-look showers and whirlpool tubs? Or maybe you want to focus on installing easy-to-clean glass showers and opening up the space. Make sure to throw in some design elements that you’ll love forever.

Explore tiled backsplashes or beadboard wainscoting. Play with dark wood cabinets and modern, unexpected sinks or open space and sleek, white counters. Get creative with lighting, flooring, and use of space. Whatever change you want to achieve, a Columbus Bath Design design specialist can help you make it happen every step of the way.

Choosing the Right Bathroom Flooring

by Columbus Bath Design |July 13, 2018 |5 Comments | Bathroom Accessories, Bathroom Design, Bathroom Maintenance, Bathroom Remodeling Materials, Bathroom Remodeling Tips | , , , , , ,

A large part of any bathroom remodel is the flooring. New flooring can be the cherry on top of a perfect decorating scheme. With selecting new bathroom flooring, however, comes some big decisions. It is important to choose the right flooring material for you and your space.

Tile

Tile is the most durable and customizable material that you can use in your bathroom. One of the biggest advantages of tile is that it offers a wide range of colors and textures. Tile is also a front-runner in regards to longevity and overall investment value. It is easy to clean, durable, and can even be heated to offset cold temperatures in the winter.

It is important to note that tile needs upkeep and maintenance to keep its appearance. Without proper cleaning, both tile and grout can grow discolored.

Vinyl

The vinyl materials available today look and perform much better than the brittle sheets or loosening sticky tiles that past vinyl options offered. A sheet vinyl is a cheap alternative that can maintain the appearance of wood or tile. Vinyl also has minimal seaming, which makes it a good choice for bathroom areas. It is more durable than wood and other flooring alternatives. Overall, vinyl is a cost-effective and accident proof flooring alternative.

Wood

While wood or high-quality laminates look warm and inviting in an otherwise cold room, there are a few things to be wary of. Wood does not react well with water, making it a risky choice for a bathroom setting. Although organic wood offers a unique and beautiful look, it can be more trouble than it is worth. Should you choose wood flooring, be ready for regular and prompt maintenance.

Accessories

With any of these options, you can add softness, color, and water absorption to the room by including strategically placed small rugs. For a spa-like feel, you can incorporate teak or river-rock mats to complement your vision. A rug also offers the peace of mind of a slip resistant surface while toweling off.

The right flooring varies from person to person and bathroom to bathroom. Budget, functionality, and look are all things to consider when it comes to remodeling. As always, if you have any questions or bathroom needs, come visit us at Columbus Bath Design. Our experts will help you explore and select the perfect flooring options for you!

Best Paints and Colors For Your Bathroom

by Columbus Bath Design |June 29, 2018 |2 Comments | Bathroom Accessories, Bathroom Design, Bathroom Maintenance, Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Bathroom tips | , , , , , ,

Bathrooms can make a huge impact on the overall aesthetic of your home. Many people have outdated bathrooms because of the common misconceptions surrounding the ease and cost of remodeling a bathroom. One quick way to spruce your bathroom up without a full remodel is to reconsider your color scheme.

Looking at Paint Samples

It can be hard to determine a good color because typically the bathroom receives the least amount of natural light in the home. It is important to get samples and paint cards to test the color before applying it to the walls. The exact colors you see in photos or magazines can be a good option to use as samples because this is generally how they will actually look under the hue of artificial light. Even colors that seem neutral can have vibrant undertones, so it’s important to test your paint cards and look at it them different times of the day before deciding.

Picking a Color Scheme

You can pick your colors based on a variety of factors. Think about what look you are going for- is it tranquil and serene? Bold and colorful? Trendy and stylish? You want to pick something that will last over a long period of time as you don’t want to have to repaint any time soon. Soft and neutral colors like light gray and sage greens will provide a relaxing and spa-like feel, and you can also pair neutrals with pops of other colors through accessories and decorations. With neutrals, you can change these accent colors out whenever you want as opposed to repainting the whole powder room. Whites and creams give bathrooms a very clean, high-end feel and pair well with marbles and white trim. Bright colors like blues, greens, and oranges, provide a punch of color and personality to a smaller space and can be toned down with white and neutral accents.

Finding a Flow

You also want to choose samples that match things in the room that you will not be remodeling, for instance, the flooring. For a cohesive feel throughout the whole powder room, it’s important to make sure all of the colors flow and there’s consistency throughout the theme of the powder room, with the colors, the flooring, the tub, the vanity, and countertops. Your powder room will look more complete and high end if it all flows together, and paints can be a great way to tie it all together.

Paint Type

Although when you walk into a home improvement store there are always a variety of wall colors to choose from, another important decision you need to make is type is what type of paint to use. One of the best paint options is semi-gloss. The texture gives it a shiny and sealed finish. This is ideal for bathrooms as it repels moisture and will prevent mold and mildew from developing. Typically all paints at the glossier end of the spectrum will resist mold and mildew well. 

Repainting your bathroom is a great way to get a fresh new look. It’s an inexpensive way to update your space if you’re not ready for a full remodel. If you have questions about paint colors or remodeling your bathroom in general, give Columbus Bath Design a call today.

 

Ways to Brighten Up A Dark Bathroom

by Columbus Bath Design |June 22, 2018 |0 Comments | Bathroom Design, Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Bathroom tips | , , , , , , , ,

Your bathroom can be a source of comfort in your home. It is a great place to sit down for a long, hot soak at the end of a long day. To keep the calming and inviting vibe of your bathroom, it is important to find the perfect lighting scheme. Fortunately, today’s homeowners have more options than ever before when it comes to turning any bathroom into a light-filled retreat. A few simple steps are all it takes to create an elegant and modern space:

Painting the Room

One of the best ways to brighten up the bath is by painting it. Paint is easy to use and easy to apply. Think about warm and sunny colors. Shades of yellow and peach are a good choice in a room with less light. Neutral shades like white and grey are always a good choice as well. White is easy to keep clean and exudes light. Make sure to choose paint that is easy to wipe clean. Good choices are high gloss and flat types of paint as they will add additional light.

Consider Your Lighting Options

Natural light is ideal whenever possible. If you have a window in the room, consider the use of frosted glass for privacy that still allows in light. As the sun goes down, artificial lighting is essential. Look for lighting that has a soft and warm feel. A single overhead feature is a good choice. This can be supplemented with other forms of lighting. A lit vanity is a useful thing to help occupants with morning rituals such as putting on makeup and attending to their hair.

The Right Accessories

Another area to think about are the right kind of accessories. Accessories offer yet more opportunity to bring in light. Use mirrors to add additional color and make the room seem bigger. Other surfaces can also be mirrored as well. Think about using a garbage pail in the room along with large metal cabinet fixtures. A set of shiny metal shelving is an ideal option that allows for practical storage. Keep stored linens and shower curtains to lighter colors such as white or pastel shades for an even brighter feel.

Flooring Possibilities

Flooring is another area that can be used bring in more light. Marble flooring is easy to clean and comes in shades of warm white and brown. Marble can also be used for the sink and the shower and bath area. Tiles are another excellent bath flooring choice. Tiles will not be harmed by water or humidity. Consider using tiles in shades of white or lighter colors along the floor and along the walls. Add personality with the use of a custom-made mosaic.

Overall, careful consideration of your bath decor scheme can yield pleasingly warm results. The experts at Columbus Bath Design can help perfect your lighting scheme and more. Contact us today to make your dream bathroom a reality.

 

Organization And Storage Ideas for Small Bathrooms

by Columbus Bath Design |June 8, 2018 |2 Comments | Bathroom Accessories, Bathroom Design, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Bathroom tips, homeowners | , , , , , , , ,

A small bathroom presents special challenges when it comes to storage. You need to find a place for small things like toilet paper, makeup, and razors while offering enough room for towels and other bulky items. Fortunately, with a few simple organizational tricks, you can find ways to fit those items into even the smallest bathrooms.

Shelving

Place a shelf right above the sink. You have a few items that you use at least once a day. Things like toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair brushes, razors, tweezers, etc. A small shelf above the sink and below the mirror is a perfect place to store these commonly used items.

Add a cabinet or shelves above the toilet. If there is one space that you need to use in a bathroom, it is the area above the toilet. Half the wall from the top of the toilet to the ceiling is available for a cabinet, open shelves, or towel racks.

Replace a mirror with one that has shelves included. A few decades ago, medicine cabinets were standard in most homes. These sturdy mirrors had shelves behind a mirrored door. Now, many homes have flat mirrors. The good news is that you can replace these flat mirrors with modern stylish ones that include the shelving.

Get Creative!

Use spice racks and hanging baskets. The wall space around your sink and tub is ideal for storing smaller items, so they are handy to find, but not cluttering the sink or tub surround. Spice racks and hanging baskets allow you to maximize your vertical storage and keep your space organized.

Put hooks on the wall. Another way to maximize your vertical storage is with hooks. Towels, brushes, robes, and bags are just a few things you can hang off a hook. With removable plastic hooks available, no surface is off limits for these handy items.

Utilize All Of Your Space

Don’t forget the back of the door. Walk into your bathroom and close the door. Look at the back of the door. There is a major blank slate available there. Hooks, racks and hanging baskets will give you the stockpile space you need.

Use the area above the door. If you look up above your bathroom door, you will see a dead space, perfect for storing extra towels and toilet paper. A simple open shelf is easy to install and will get things up and out of the way. You can go as plain or as fancy as you want with the shelf and hardware choice.

Maximize your under sink cache. If you have a sink cabinet, you need to ensure you are using all the space available. Plastic drawers and adjustable shelves can give you precious space for seldom-used items that you still need to access on occasion.

These simple organization ideas will help you maximize your bathroom potential. If your small bathroom just still isn’t doing the trick, the experts at Columbus Bath Design can help you remodel a brand new bathroom. Give us a call today!
