Go Neutral

Ensure that your bathroom remodeling in Chicago is a hit by going with neutral colors. You can always add some style and interest with your linens and accessories, but the walls, floor, and fixtures should have nice, soothing, neutral shades that most people will like.

Bathroom Remodeling: Design and Plumbing

Bathroom remodeling projects can be a huge boon in your household, whether you’re looking to boost up the selling price of your house, or you simply want to make it more efficient and convenient for your family. However, when remodeling anything in your bathroom, be it something as simple as replacing the bathtub, aesthetics isn’t the only thing you should be worried about.

For instance, bathroom renovations need to prioritize privacy as much as possible. Regardless if the owner wishes to replace the tub with a shower or not, the contractor must ensure that the bathing area has sufficient cover. The toilet also deserves the same treatment, which means that it needs to be positioned well away from the door. Alternatively, a separate toilet room can be built to provide more privacy.

Brighten Up a Bathroom Remodel by Using Glass Tile

Good Bathroom Remodel Ideas and Habits

In a home remodeling project, it’s wise to keep in mind that the results shouldn’t only be pleasing to the eye and kinder to your energy budget, but should also have added value to your home at resale. Here are several bathroom remodeling ideas (and habits) that will help through the process without having to regret a thing.

Setting up a contingency

Hidden water damage is a common problem in bathrooms—whether from a running toilet or leaking shower pipe. Visible leaks are fairly easy to fix; hidden problems are more troublesome as they often require reserve funds, given that such problems have already gotten worse over time.

Hiding the toilet

A truly stylish master bath can also be discreet. It’s still much nicer to hide this fixture away; say, behind a half wall or in its own “room-within-the-room” space. Pieces of furniture like armoires or dressers can also do the trick.

Being precise with dimension measurements

Never just estimate the measurements of the fixtures you need to replace, especially when it comes to sections that involve plumbing. There’s nothing worse than pre-buying all the pieces for your bathroom renovation project only to find out that the pieces don’t fit. Even a few centimeters can spell the difference between the right and wrong fit.

Creating and sticking to a plan

Making up your design as you go will likely get you ending up with something like the Winchester Mystery House—full of pseudo-rooms, staircases, and doors which are merely aesthetic, and not functional at all.

Plan with a Bathroom Remodeling Pro

A bathroom renovation is one of the most significant investments you can make. According to real estate experts, you can easily recoup as much as 80-90% of the remodeling cost when you sell your home. The added comfort and enjoyment from its use however, is priceless.

However, before you embark on the actual remodel, careful planning must be done. Poor preparation and rushing through the process is the leading cause of cost overruns on any home improvement project, and is more likely to happen when you choose to skimp on skilled labor. A do-it-yourself approach may also seem like an affordable way to get the job done, but eventually having the project re-done due to shoddy workmanship will be more costly down the line.

By working with trained and experienced Chicago bathroom remodeling contractors, you are assured that your bathroom looks and functions exactly the way you envisioned it to. Professional contractors can also provide great value on the materials that will be used, as they know where to source materials that are aesthetically pleasing, long lasting, yet reasonably priced. Their expertise is also beneficial in finding fixtures that are cost-effective, ensuring that you save more on water and energy utility bills. Contact your local contractor to find out more about how they can help you get the most out of your bathroom remodeling project.
