A Bathroom Remodel For Your Home
Choosing the best general contractor for your bathroom remodel
TURNING YOUR BATHROOM INTO SOMETHING AMAZING
A Bathroom Remodel Requires an Experienced general Contractor
The bathroom remodel is an exciting project. It is the smallest area in most houses and, along with the kitchen, one of the two rooms most often remodeled.
When space is typically limited, this can be the biggest hurdle in a bathroom remodel. That’s because the usual floor plan is only about 8 feet by 5 feet, and once the essentials are in place, there’s not a lot of room for anything else.

If the typical bathroom is all the space that’s available, you’re going to be restricted in what you can do. You have to get creative and choose things that might make it more functional. Maybe a walk-in shower instead of a bathtub.
One way to overcome the hurdle is to make the bathroom bigger. That can be done by adding a closet, hallway, part of a bedroom or merging two back-to-back bathrooms together. Some clients convert unused child’s bedrooms into a master bath. With that much space, it’s possible to include a separate tub and shower, Roman or Jacuzzi tub. Dual showers, double large-bowl sinks, or even multiple big fixtures are exciting features to add.
The shower, tub or combo question is crucial because any configuration will take up a big chunk of floor space in a bathroom remodel.
Big showers are in and always a beautiful addition. A shower big enough for two is an especially hot item in a bathroom remodel project. It doesn’t have to be unattractive, but it can be beautiful and unique.
Two other high priorities are lighting and storage space.
Good lighting is especially important in a larger bathroom where dark areas or shadows might be a problem. A light fixture above a vanity that creates shadows on a mirror used to apply makeup might not be the best solution. There are other ways to create a nice ambiance.
Cabinets are important because many people want a place to keep medications in the bathroom. That means nice cabinetry on one or both sides of the mirror over the vanity or, if it’s a double sink, a cabinet that goes to the ceiling between the two vanities.
Aging in place
Homeowners of any age should consider adding aging-in-place or so-called universal design features when planning a bathroom remodel. Examples of universal design include grab bars in the shower, a comfort-height toilet, a walk-in or curbless shower, and power outlets and light switches that are low enough to be reached from a wheelchair.
It’s often easier and less costly to make provisions for these accommodations while other work is being done, rather than wait and retrofit later when the accommodations are needed.
A Bathroom Remodel Adds Value To Your Home
Whether you choose to stay or sell your home, a bathroom remodel adds value. Adding value to your lifestyle or for financial gain when selling, a bathroom remodel is a win win.
