Refresh Your Home with a Remodel

by Columbus Bath Design |March 27, 2020 |1 Comments | Bathroom Remodeling | , , , ,

bathroom remodelThe 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. 

How extensive are bathroom remodels?

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.

  • Replacing the vanity: Many homeowners underestimate the value of a vanity. In addition to housing the sink, your vanity provides storage space and sets the stage for the rest of your bathroom. When not installed properly, it can be easy for mold to attach itself to your vanity, which can lead to cabinet damage as well.

    You’ve got a host of options for vanity replacements. For example, open vanities give your bathroom an uncluttered appeal. If you’re more into the antique look, we can help you use repurposed furniture that gives a fun take on a traditional look. If your budget allows, we can also help you with a custom-designed vanity.

  • New flooring: In the bathroom, what’s underneath your feet is definitely important. Choosing to replace the flooring is often one of the least expensive – yet most impactful – remodeling options for your bathroom. 

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.

  • Replacing your tub or shower: Whether you want a deep tub for a soaking bubble bath or a walk-in shower (which is very trendy these days), there are benefits to both. Some people decide to ditch their tub altogether because they use it so sparingly. Others wouldn’t dream of doing such a thing.

    We’ve also noticed a growing need for walk-in tubs. Even though many independent seniors prefer this, it can be a good choice for practically anyone. Walk-in tubs are ideal for homeowners with mobility problems.

  • Improved lighting: This is an often-overlooked detail for most bathrooms in general. With today’s technology, though, the lighting scheme in your bathroom can be customized to your tastes. In addition to selecting the light color, newer features give the ability to adjust the level of the light intensity. 

How disruptive is the bathroom remodeling process?

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.

Making Your Dream Bathroom a Reality

Regardless of whether your bathroom is old and outdated or you simply want to change the decor and make it more luxurious, your dream bathroom can be a reality.

Choosing a Theme

There are several factors to consider when planning your bathroom remodel project. The first is whether you want a traditional look or prefer another style, such as a contemporary or a “green” bathroom.

Traditional bathrooms typically feature calm colors, sophisticated cabinets, and standard lighting, while contemporary styles use contrasting bold colors, unique lights, and crisp simple lines.

Green bathrooms are highly popular among today’s homeowners as well, and often feature eco-friendly characteristics, such as cabinets and fixtures made from bamboo, and soft, earthy colors, such as various shades of green and brown.

Planning Your Project

The practical aspects of the project depend on things such as the shape and size of your bathroom, and the desired features. Vent stacks, water lines, and plumbing drains must be considered when you remodel. Therefore, when you or your bathroom designer are evaluating space guidelines, make sure everything is figured into the design.

You may also simply choose to make minor changes that can create a dream bathroom without a high price tag. For example, tiling the floors and walls add a sense of grandness and luxury. You can choose from a variety of patterns and designs to create a dramatic and luxurious look.

Another great tip for a dream bathroom remodels project is to install smoked glass shower doors instead of traditional transparent glass. This definitely creates a luxurious atmosphere in this much-used room. The smoked glass also offers a sense of refinement and privacy, which can add to the overall ambiance of your bathroom.

With a bit of planning and a little creativity, it is entirely possible to make your dream bathroom a reality.

Tips on Planning A Bathroom Remodeling Project

Many homeowners choose springtime to complete renovations. If you are planning a bathroom remodeling project and are looking around for some professional tips, consider the suggestions outlined below to help ensure a successful project:

Design Details. Whether your goal is a complete remodeling project or merely a facelift, focusing on design detail allows you to have a smooth, hassle-free remodeling project. Decide in advance which outdated features you want to change and shop for fixtures, lights, cabinets and color schemes to help give the room a whole new look. Browse current bathroom trends to discover the themes and styles you find most appealing, remembering that even simple things, such as mirrors, wall décor, handles and faucets can have a significant impact on the overall outcome of the renovations.

Lighting. According to tips offered by home improvement experts, lighting should always be considered part of any remodeling project. You do not want to end up with outdated light fixtures in a brand-new bathroom, as these two characteristics will clash. Plan lighting early on in the project so that you will realize if new cables must be run or if you want a complete change, such as recessed lighting.

Curved Shower Rods. Simply replacing a straight shower rod with a curved rod adds a substantial amount of space to your shower. This option also looks more luxurious than its conventional counterpart. Additionally, it attaches with screws as opposed to a tension system and therefore does not become dislodged.

Accent Tiles. Glass or mosaic can be used as accent tiles in a bathroom if you want to add a designer touch to the walls or floor. Using special tiles as borders, or even sporadically placing them on that wall to give a dull pattern a blast of character or color, are great ways to create a new look without doing extensive bathroom remodeling. Whichever tips you decide to use, it is almost certain that your newly renovated bathroom will make you happy for many years to come.
