Giving construction estimates on a whim is a tough job. A contractor may run into a potential client on the street and they ask a very broad, “how much to to put up a garage” question even though there are dozens of variables that would affect that answer.
Bathroom contracting specialists deal with the same thing, specifically in questions about the timeline of a renovation. Homeowners have every right to know these details (along with cost, starting date, scope of work, etc.) but there are also a number of factors that go into this answer. Here are the steps of a bathroom renovation and how long you can expect each to take:
Home renovations that require structural, electrical, or plumbing alterations will more often than not require a permit depending on your jurisdiction. If you just plan on changing the visual appearance of the bathroom (paint, new lighting or trim) then work can commence immediately. Also the good news about a bathroom renovation is that it is interior which means a permit can usually be granted within a week. Exterior remodeling in historical districts requires a board meeting and can take up to 6 weeks.
Once the scope of work is approved by the proper authorities, it’s time to start the ‘out with the old in with the new’ process. Many homeowners consider the demolition process a very doable DIY project, but just know that do-it-yourself jobs almost always stretch out the timeline.
Instead of a multi-person crew working 8 hour days, you’re likely having untrained friends and family volunteering their time on nights and weekends. Professional contractors can usually have bathroom demo done in a day, but DIY depends on how aggressive a person is with their time.
Framing and Rebuilding
You’re not dealing with the biggest square footage even in spacious, luxury, master bathrooms so the work involved with re-framing the room isn’t that time consuming. Replacing rotted subflooring is a one-day project, as is framing new walls for layout changes.
With interior work, the good news is that contractors can stick to deadlines regardless of weather. The only thing that would push the re-framing aspect into a second week would be a material shortage. It’s incredibly important that all of this work is done on time because services trades cannot start their work until the ‘bare bones’ are back in place.
Plumbing and Electrical
What many homeowners find is that the plumbing and electrical required for a bathroom renovation usually isn’t all that time consuming – but getting the tradespeople on site is. Construction contractors often get blamed for project delays when the truth is they are playing the waiting game on the often swamped service techs.
Don’t be surprised if your bathroom sits torn apart and idle for a week or two while waiting for a plumber and/or electrician to get to the job site. That’s why it’s important to have prompt demo done, and also have a general contractor with specific timelines and who stays on top of the service trades promises.
Whether it’s flooring or a shower wall, it’s not a stretch to assume that tile installation will be the most time consuming aspect of your bathroom renovation. This is definitely a job that you don’t want rushed though, so give the installer plenty of time before scheduling the next service.
There’s just a lot that goes into the tile application process. For one, an installer can only work in sections since the adhesive mastic will dry up if they get too far ahead of themselves. Each individual tile needs to be placed meticulously so that it is straight and spaced out properly. Then, once the mastic and tiles are down, at least 24 hours should pass before applying grout.
The good news is that other types of flooring besides tile can be applied in a much quicker manner. Laying a laminate floor for example is usually a one-day job, but at the same time it doesn’t provide the same durability (or often the same aesthetics) as tile.
Fixtures, Paint, Trim
Installing new fixtures as well as painting and applying base, window, and door trim aren’t especially time consuming either. The thing is, you want to dedicate a day (two on the safe side) to each. Painters can do their job a lot faster before the vanity and trim is installed. The vanity should be installed before the base trim so it can be flush against the wall as well.
It’s not fair to ask multiple contractors to try and work at the same time in a space as small as a bathroom. Not to mention, each of them waiting to get in and out of a room is going to drive labor costs through the roof.
How Long Does a Bathroom Renovation Take Summary
There are little nuances during each step of a bathroom renovation that could really stretch out this project. You’ve got the design and permit phase before any work can even be done, then the demo, then giving plumbers and electricians enough time to install the ‘guts’ before the actual rebuild can begin.
Tile mastic and grout needs time to dry, as does paint. Fixtures, vanity, and trim all needs to be applied in a certain order as well. If you’ve got a contractor that is well-versed in all of these services, that’s going to significantly cut down on your timeline, but this is still a 2-week job at minimum.
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.
We’d love to tell you about how you can get $250 of your bathroom remodeling project!
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 614-721-3883.
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 614-721-3883, 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.
To get the ball rolling on your bathroom remodeling project, call us at 614-721-3883, or get in touch via email or through our online contact page.
A bathroom remodel is sure to be a delight for you and your family once the revamp is complete. Guests who visit your home will enjoy the upgrade too, as there’s nothing like a fresh new look to make the time in there a bit better. After all, we do spend a significant portion of our waking hours in the bathroom, so fixing it up is always appreciated.
Not only will a bathroom remodel or upgrade make the room more livable for you and yours, but it will add value to your home in the event you choose to put it on the market sometime in the future. This may not be top of mind at the moment, but it is a consideration to be aware of, no matter your selling plans at the present time. As one of the most used rooms in the home, a clean, crisp, well-coordinated, and upkept bathroom makes an immediate impression, proving that your home is well taken care of and maintained to the max.
Size is not an issue when it comes to making an impact. Even the smallest bathrooms have plenty of potential, so don’t dismiss an upgrade when there is a lot that can be accomplished. For instance, if you currently have a tub, consider converting it into a more streamlined shower. This will add more space and make the bathroom look modern. You can add attractive mirrors to create an illusion of a larger room, as well as lighting techniques that will add a degree of dimension. Less clutter on the countertop, a sleek vanity space, and even the color of the tiles will change everything. Small does not mean you’re stuck. We will reinvent your bathroom room so the area appears more spacious.
Depending on your budget, redo options are all over the board. We will work with you to get the most bang for your buck, be it in just one of your bathrooms or all of them. First and foremost, function is top priority. Let’s be sure your faucets aren’t dripping or leaking, cracks and crumbles are dealt with, and there’s nothing falling apart or especially unsightly. It is always smart to focus on the bathroom(s) that buyers care about the most – perhaps the one in the master bedroom or one in your main foyer that gets lots of foot traffic. It all depends on the layout of your home and the current status of your space. If all you require is a few touch-ups, consider giving each bathroom an upgrade to some degree. Little changes go a long way, be it adding a double sink for that “fancy” factor, or removing your clunky vanity for something slimmer and more stylish. Glass shower doors look far more flattering than ratty old plastic shower curtains, and nice shiny new faucets add a touch of flair.
Tiles can last a long time if they are made from high-quality materials and have been installed properly. They may do the trick for the time being, but as for reselling, you may want to swap them out. An old-fashioned look – no matter how well the tiles may have tolerated time – may make people think your bathroom isn’t up to par. We’ve got tons of tiles to choose from, in a wide range of colors, shapes, and sizes, and at a variety of price points. Peruse our sizeable showroom for samples, and see the drastic difference new tiles can make. They are durable and easy to clean, so the upgrade will last you just as long as the ones you’ve got now…if not longer. If your bathroom is not currently tiled, consider making a swap to this style. The luxurious look of tile adds pizazz and provides a nice selling point when buyers are looking at your bathroom.
A bathroom remodel of any size is a smart move for your money. Whether your budget is small, large, or somewhere in the middle, our friendly and focused team is trained to take your bathroom to the next level. No matter your taste, we will together work out a style that speaks to you. And when you one day sell your home, you will get what you deserve, thanks, in part, to a Columbus Bath Design upgrade. Give us a call when you’re ready to remodel at (614) 907-4558 for an estimate, or stop into our vast showroom to see some of the set-ups we’ve designed. Let’s plan a redo start date. We can’t wait to deliver your dream bathroom!

It is all about your space, budget, and ultimate remodeling goals. A shiny new vanity is a nice addition, spicing up the main focal point of your bathroom. Mirrors and lighting may not seem like much, but they have a wonderful way of reworking the area for added allure and appeal.

Forget about making lists and loading up your sleigh with things they don’t really need (or want!). Christmas is just around the corner, so why not up your game this year and give your family something they really want… a gorgeous new luxury bath with all the bells and whistles!
This may be your best idea, ever — a brand new family bathroom (or two!) fully loaded with the niceties and necessities that check all the boxes on your wishlist. Now’s the time to do things up right… enlarge the shower, update the tile, change out the vanity, and/or add much-needed storage and style.
Think about the last time you were in a luxury bath. What did you enjoy most there? How did it make you feel? Then look through magazines and online sites like Houzz and Pinterest for the look you love and the features you long for. Be sure to consider who’ll be using the space – spouse, kids, in-laws, guests — and what might jingle their bells, as well. There’s nothing like a tricked-out bathroom to encourage family unity, comfort and joy! Here’s some food for thought just to get the ball rolling:
Now’s the time to add the custom touches that will make your life easier, more organized or more fun. Have a problem you need to solve? We can help you with that, too.

Everybody deserves their own little slice of heaven. For many people, there’s nothing quite like having a beautifully revamped dream bathroom where they can relax, unwind, and leave their worries behind. If you’re interested in updating or totally remodeling your bathroom, then you’ve come to the right place. Whether your style is modern and chic or comfortable and cozy—Columbus Bath Design can help you design the bathroom you’ve always wanted.
There are a few key areas you should focus on if you’re interested in a bathroom update or remodel. We understand the process can feel complex. That’s why we’re here to help you every step of the way. Let’s kick this off by starting with some of the key considerations you should keep in mind as you move throughout the design process.
First, consider what your dream bathroom looks like to you. This part of the process requires a little creativity. You’ll want to start by considering the ambiance you would like to create. Perhaps you want a spa-like feel, or you prefer something simpler that is more geared toward functionality. Even if you aren’t sure of the proper design terms, you can start by looking at pictures and discussing what you like or don’t like about each design aspect. As you make these decisions, you’ll quickly realize that you have a design concept that you prefer.
Starting a bathroom remodel can feel overwhelming. After all, there are so many choices! However, it’s best to start with the basics. You can narrow in on your design by simply beginning with the color scheme. While the color of the space may feel like a fundamental decision (and it is!), it can go a long way in helping you narrow down which fixtures and décor will enhance the space. Perhaps you prefer something bright and welcoming, or maybe you like something calm and tranquil—that one decision about color will get you on the path toward designing your perfect bathroom!
While it’s certainly essential to understand that trends come and go, you also want to be aware of the hottest designs in the market. Right now, we see a lot of combinational bathrooms with soaker tubs and walk-in showers. People want the best of both worlds, so often, if there is enough space for both, then that is what we do!
There are primarily two broad design choices that people lean towards: minimal or functional. Of course, there is a lot of room for customization in each category. Minimal designs focus more on keeping the space open and modern. Functional designs tend to be more focused on how space can be easily used and comfortable.
Products and accessories can go a long way towards bringing a design scheme to life. The fun part of the design process is when we bring together tile choice, lighting fixtures, faucets, and all the other finer details. The best part about it? You can take things you like from different designs and bring them together in a way that makes sense for you and your space.
The critical thing to remember is that this space should be designed for the people who live in it. While trends can certainly be a great point of inspiration, the process is all about personalizing the space so that you feel the most comfortable in it.
The hottest trend in any kind of design project these days is just how much it focuses on the personality of the customer. Your preferences should be apparent through every step of the process. While we can help you hone in on colors and products that will make the most of the space, your style should be at the forefront of the design. We will help you get there!
No matter the design you choose, make sure that functionality is part of it. You’ll want to be sure that your space has plenty of usable storage and that the flow of the room makes sense. Using different types of baskets, totes, or bins can really bring the space together.
Everything from tub size to faucet design can play a critical role in how you use your bathroom. Giving some thought to the finer details can go a long way in ensuring that the space is the most comfortable and useful space possible.

Some folks love to take simple showers, others look forward to a long and relaxing soak in the tub. While both “getting clean” styles have their benefits, most of us are either “shower people” or “bath people.” Naturally, there are always those who like to switch it up every so often, but generally speaking, you are either on “team shower” or “team bath.” Hmmm…do they make a T-shirt for that?
In any event, some people just do not have room for a tub or the time in the day to take a bath even if they did have more space for one to be installed. Showering is surely quicker and more convenient, but what about those with kids? There are many important factors that go into the choice to either go with a shower or a tub, so weighing all the options for what you can do with your bathroom is advisable, and with Columbus Bath Design, also affordable.
Here are some benefits of both the shower and the tub, and perhaps seeing them in print will help you make a well-informed decision as to your next step in your bathroom redesign. And the good thing is, Columbus Bath Design offers tub-to-shower and shower-to-tub conversions. So you do not necessarily have to stick with what you’ve already got. Flexibility is fun, so think about a redo if it feels right and your bathroom size and style would suit the switch-up.
Showers are sleeker. You will have more room overall in the bathroom when you opt for a stand-up, space-saving shower instead of a bigger bath. When you have a bathroom that is on the smaller size, going for a shower will open up the space, giving the illusion of a larger bathroom. And when you opt for one of our luxury glass shower doors, the clear component is not only classy, but adds even more openness.
Showers are much more energy efficient. You will use less water while showering than by filling a bath…unless you take super long, fingertip-pruning showers. If saving energy is something that is important to you and your family, then going for a shower is the eco-friendly choice you will feel more comfortable with.
Showers lend themselves to easy access, in and out. Some people have issues with getting into and out of a bathtub, be it the elderly or those with physical limitations. You can always install a safety seat in the shower for those who need it for support.
Showers are more convenient. You do not have to wait around like you do for the tub to fill, something that can be a real time-sucker when you need to get ready for work or school in a snap. When you are ready to get clean, pop in and pop out.
Baths are super relaxing. Imagine sitting and soaking after a long day at work or first thing on Sunday morning before brunch. You can listen to soft music, fill the tub with bubbles, and ease your tension and stress, all while getting clean. Sounds pretty nice, huh?
Baths are helpful for those with small children. When you are still at the stage where you are cleaning your kids, doing so in the shower means you are getting in too…and getting wet. You can put your little one in the bath without the bother of trying to get the shampoo out of their eyes…and yours, for that matter. Not to mention, rubber duckies don’t have nearly as much fun in the shower.
Baths can have a shower head installed in the wall too. You can have the option of bathing or showering in one spot. This is perfect for the person who loves the idea of both options and a smart solution for families with varied needs.
Baths are something buyers seek out. Your home has more value when there is a bathtub in at least one of the bathrooms. If you think you may sell your place at some point down the road, installing a bathtub is a smart investment you will be glad you made.
So, what’ll it be? A shower or a bathtub? Still can’t decide? That’s what the Columbus Bath Design team is here for. To help you figure out what option would work best for you as well as the space you are working with. We have so many options to choose from, perfect for bathrooms of all sizes and shapes, as well as your personal style. Give us a call at 614-721-3884 or come visit our spectacular showroom and we’ll give you a taste of what’s possible.
Spring is here and the warmer temperatures are bringing new life. As flowers are blooming and trees are turning green again, you might feel like the inside of your home needs some refreshing as well. Spring cleaning can freshen up any home, but sometimes you have to make a big change to really start anew. Think about a space that gets a lot of use by everyone that enters your home. That’s right, the bathroom. The bathrooms in your home could probably use some love this spring, and what better way to brighten them up than to give them a new look? Below, I’ll answer some questions you may have about remodeling your bathroom.
Bringing a fresh look to any space can change your attitudes and feelings toward the space itself. Adding new shelving to a cramped closet, changing the color of your bedroom walls, or simply buying a new welcome mat for outside your door can give you a new lease on life in your home. So how about your bathrooms? The bathroom is a space you, your family, and your guests use all the time. From getting ready in the morning all the way to preparing for bed, your bathroom is a constant throughout your day. Remodeling a bathroom, even if you simply paint the walls, can freshen up the entire house. Everyone knows that a fresh coat of paint can make rooms seem brighter, cleaner, and more modern. As a centerpiece in your home, the bathroom has a lot of sway in how your home is seen and how it functions. Tackling a full bathroom remodel can seem like an unconquerable beast. There’s so much to do! New tubs, new sinks, new faucets, the list goes on! However, at Columbus Bath Design, we take all the hard work off your shoulders and deliver the bathroom you’ve always wished for. Let us handle the nitty gritty details of remodeling your bathroom while you sit back and relax through the process! At the end, you’ll have a stunning bathroom that you’ll be excited to put to use.
A remodel could seem like a drastic step if you’re simply looking to freshen up your home. However, in addition to adding new energy to your home, a remodel can add multiple benefits and value to your home as well. With updated tiles, tubs, sinks, cabinets, and toilets, a remodel of your bathroom can make your home more valuable overall. In the future, if you choose to move from your current home to somewhere new, an updated bathroom will be a huge selling point. As for day to day benefits, the list is long! Is there something in your bathroom that just doesn’t work quite right or causes you to be annoyed often? May it be a sticky drawer, a leaky faucet, or a toilet that runs day and night, small issues like this will be resolved during your remodel. However, the huge benefit of a remodel is that you’re redoing everything from top to bottom. This means that bigger issues can be handled as well. Say the space in your bathroom isn’t used efficiently: the counter juts out too much and you always hit your hip bone on it or the toilet feels just a little too close to the tub. With a remodel, these structural annoyances or issues can be resolved. Investing in a remodel of you bathroom is never a bad idea. You can get rid of issues that have plagued you each and everyday!
First things first, you must decide if a remodel seems right for you. If it does, begin brainstorming about the look and feel that you want to achieve with your bathroom. Then, head on over to www.columbusbathdesign.com or call us at 614.721.3883 to begin the process. Our staff can help you pick out the perfect design for your bathroom. You can choose everything for your new bathroom, down to the tiny details! Our staff is receptive to your ideas and knowledgeable about the functional needs of a bathroom. We’ll provide you with a free in-home estimate so you know exactly what you’ll be getting into with this remodel. Following the estimate, you’ll finalize your design with our team.

If you’re looking for a way to add value to your home, a bathroom remodel is a great place to start. Not only will you and your family enjoy your new space, but if you decide to sell your home in the future, a brand-new bathroom is a great selling feature. Columbus Bath Design Design, located in Columbus, Ohio specializes in bathroom remodeling and makes the process efficient, cost-effective and seamless for you.
According to builders and contractors, a bathroom is a place that potential buyers view as either finished or as a project they’ve got to do. A project, or update, will require more money and can sometimes turn a potential buyer away from the purchase. However, a well-structured renovation can recoup up to one hundred percent of the investment. People are not only searching for style and design but also energy efficient and environmentally sound products, which Columbus Bath Design can offer in large supply.
An outdated bathroom gives the impression that other things in the house may be outdated as well. When remodeling, it is a good time to also upgrade the plumbing and electrical features. Building codes may have changed since your home was built and potential buyers may have a concern when seeing an older bathroom. If you find a problem and then repair it, you can increase the value of your home as well.
The average cost of remodeling a new bathroom varies greatly from area to area. The age of the house and the general condition also play a role. You must decide how much of an investment you are willing to budget. Do you just need new fixtures and a backsplash or are you looking at a gut job?
Keep in mind the style of your existing home. When adding value to your home, you shouldn’t “go overboard” on modern high-end furnishings if your home has a rustic design. Likewise, consider if the buyers will think that a tub is a waste of space and better suited for a high-end shower. Also, if your home has only one bath, maybe think about adding a second bath to accommodate a larger family. Even though people like the charm of an older home, today’s busy schedules tend to see the need for a second bathroom. You can check other homes in the area to see if adding a second bathroom will help you compete in the market.
Where do you get the most return on your investment in remodeling a bathroom? Updated fixtures and lighting appeal to most buyers. Functionality and usability are also among the must-haves. Storage is another premium for most families. A well-planned design will make the most from unused and awkward spaces. Luxury touches, such as separate shower areas and heated floors, are also worth considering, depending on your home and location. Lighting, and plenty of it, can make a bathroom feel larger, warm and inviting. Columbus Bath Design has design experts and master plumbers who do only bathroom remodels which makes them an ideal company to work with on your bathroom updates.
If you are not planning to sell your home any time soon, make your bathroom remodel to suit your family’s needs, but keep in mind that everyone might not have the same taste as you do. Choosing a color scheme can be stressful, but always remember that neutral colors will allow the next homeowner to add their own pops of color with linens and accessories. The same can be said for adding lighting and fixtures.
Most older homes have only a single sink, whereas, today’s homebuyers typically require a second sink, especially in a master bathroom. If room permits, adding a second sink will appeal to a buyer, but also will make your bathroom more functional for your family.
Also, consider changing the shower head. This can make a world of difference cosmetically and efficiency wise. You can upgrade the shower fixture and shower head for a luxurious feel with the right components. Today’s homebuyers are looking for features that are aesthetically pleasing and functionally appealing.
According to the National Board of Realtors, on a scale of 1–10 a bathroom remodel, done right, is about a 9.6 for potential buyers. Additionally, families will enjoy this newly renovated space as well.
Most people do not live in the magazine picture perfect bathrooms. They want clean lines and usable space. Don’t overdo the space with ornate fixtures if the rest of your house is styled in rustic features. Keep in mind that you will be living there until which time you decide to put it on the market. Consider what works for you and your family will probably work for potential buyers.
