As a homeowner, you’re faced with decisions on a frequent basis. One of those decisions could be whether or not to remodel. If you choose to give your home an updated look, the next question is, “Where should I start?” Here at Columbus Bath Design of Columbus, OH, we naturally suggest you start with the room where you get each and every day off to a great start – your bathroom. Before you begin the bathroom remodel, however, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.
See the Big Picture
First, determine how the bathroom is being used. If this is a space where you’ll taking a nice, long soak after a tough day at work, you’ll probably want to increase the usable area to accommodate a spacious tub. If the primary use is to grab a quick shower, brush those pearly whites and hit the road in the morning, then a tub-to-shower conversion might do the trick. Will you and your significant other be sharing the space at the same time? You might consider dropping from a double sink to a single and maximize the counter space. Since we handle everything from floor to ceiling including cabinets, floor tile and commodes, be sure to check out our showroom. Our design team can even help you come up with a few ideas.
Count the Cost
Once you have an idea of what you want, it’s time to work up a budget. You can work on the project in phases, but you might be surprised at how affordable an entire bathroom remodel can be. At Columbus Bath Design, we can work with your budget to ensure you’re getting the most for your money. We have a wide variety of fixtures, accessories and materials…and, we even offer a “90 days same as cash” program.
One other note on budgeting – be sure to factor in some of the unexpected costs such as hidden water damage to walls and the floor. Again, our team can help you in spotting those ahead of time.
Finding the Perfect Fit
It’s one thing to see a picture of a stunning bathroom in a magazine and it’s quite another to use that bathroom on a daily basis. For example, a shower bench that looks amazing in print, might not be the most comfortable seat for you. That’s why you’ll want to get a feel for all of the elements that will be placed in your remodeled bathroom. Walk through our showroom, have a seat, stand at the sink, take hold of the grab bars. It’s your room…customize it to your needs.
As with any remodeling project, you want to see the big picture. At Columbus Bath Design of Columbus, Ohio, we can help you bring that picture into focus.
