A bathroom remodel does not have to be an all-or-nothing proposition. It can be simple or very complex. You can give a bathroom a fresh new look on any budget. Here are some common questions and answers to jump-start thinking about remodeling your bathroom.
We would like to update our bathroom, but don’t have the money for a full-scale renovation. What updates will give me the biggest bang for the buck?
You can update your bath just by changing out a sink and faucet. A vessel sink for a new look would be a good choice. You can change a standard-height toilet to a comfort-height toilet. You could change a countertop for a whole new look. For people “aging in place” you can take out a bathtub and replace it with a walk-in shower. More people are staying in their existing homes, rather than moving into an assisted-living facility. Showers are much more accessible than tubs, whether you are feeling the effects of getting older or if you have some type of injury or disability which prevents you from getting in and out of a tub.
How do I know which fixtures to choose?
I can help you narrow your options by asking you a few questions: Do you want everything to match? Are you changing everything or just a faucet? What is your budget? I’ll encourage you to take a look around the showroom and tell me what you are drawn to; I can help once I get a feel for your preferences and your budget.
What are some of the hottest trends in bathroom updates?
I see things going back to simple, clean lines. Low maintenance is a big concern today. The cleaner lines are easier to maintain. Chrome fixtures are coming back—chrome will be around forever and will not lock you into a finish that will be out of style in a couple of years.
What is one mistake you would like your customers to avoid?
Thinking that they can’t afford to update a bathroom. It can be done with any budget. Just talk to me about what you want to spend and we can find something of good quality to fit your needs.
