Bathroom Remodeling Tips Maryville Tennessee
There’s something special about a great bathroom. When we find ourselves in a beautiful bathroom, it’s easy to feel calm, happy, and a little bit fancy.
If you’re looking for bathroom remodeling ideas, you might be feeling overwhelmed by the choices. Bathroom renovation magazines and websites are full of stunning designs that each look as lovely as the last.
It can be subconscious, but we’re drawn to bathrooms that have been thoughtfully designed to meet our needs perfectly.
Many considerations go into creating a bathroom that makes you smile each time you look at it.
Create a Budget
When you get the chance to transform your home into the exact style you want, you’re making an investment in your property and yourself. Home and bathroom remodeling can cost as much as you let it, and without a solid budget, costs can spiral.
The solution is to research local custom building costs, set a realistic budget, and then try to stick to it. This can be easier if you choose a remodeling contractor or design-build firm that offers fixed pricing rather than estimates.
Bathroom remodels can get expensive quickly, due to labor costs and, to a lesser extent, materials. Top bathroom general contractors and the licensed subcontractors they work with are skilled professionals, and they are in demand. If you want to upgrade your existing bathroom to higher-end materials, you’ll need to factor in the cost of everything from tiles to a bathtub.
To create your budget, you’ll need to take into consideration a few things:
Are you looking to sell within a few years?
Do you want to change the location of plumbed-in items?
What parts of the new bathroom are absolutely essential?
What can you afford to invest?
Develop a Bathroom Layout
So you’ve settled on the type of bathroom you’re installing or redoing (half or full bath, wet bath or standard). Now it’s time to think about layout. Depending on the shape and size of the area you have to work with, there are countless variations in bathroom layout.
Important tip: Before you think about the aesthetics of your bathroom remodel, you have to nail down the layout.
Rearranging plumbing fixtures (and walls) can quickly drive up the cost of your bathroom remodel, and if you can leave well enough alone, then do.
Sometimes the existing layout simply doesn’t work.
You might need to change the layout for any number of reasons. And that’s when it can get tricky.
When you’re looking at your existing bathroom, that image gets stuck in your head. It can be a mental leap to re-imagine it as anything other than its original form.
In general, the smaller the space, the fewer layout choices you will be confronted with. There are only so many ways you can fit a tub, sink, and toilet into an 8′ x 8′ footprint. Obviously, more space opens up more possibilities and more opportunities for customization.
An experienced interior designer can help you make the best use of a small space. He or she can also help you customize a larger layout to fit your unique needs.
