Is It Time to Remodel Your Bathroom?
Are you considering a bathroom remodel? There are a number of factors to weigh when determining where and how to start the process. Below are some key questions to get you started from the Denver bathroom design experts at Striking Kitchen and Bath by Bell.
What are your remodel goals?
This might seem like an odd question. Your goal is to have a beautiful bathroom that functions, right? Well, yes but what is missing in your current bathroom? Is it too small? Does it have a tub that you don’t use? Is there a lack of storage? Start by writing down what you hope to accomplish with a bathroom remodel. Things like updating the plumbing fixtures and faucets, designing a luxurious soaking tub, adding a steam shower, gaining storage space, adding a heated floor, or making it wheelchair accessible.
What is the age of your bathroom?
Once a bathroom gets to a certain age, components become outdated and start to wear out. Finishes like vinyl flooring, laminate counters, tiled walls, and fiberglass surrounds might be showing wear from years of use. Maybe you want to update them with low-maintenance, fresh new products. Maybe, however, you want to keep the vintage look but replace the fixtures and finishes with new, working components.
How long do you plan to live in this home?
If you’re planning to sell your home in the next several years, you may want to make selections that are universally appreciated. Those selections would include easy-care finishes, durable materials, and trending colors. According to research firm Zonda, a bathroom that incorporates Universal Design tends to net the highest return on your investment. Universal Design incorporates construction practices that make the space accessible to people of all ages and disabilities. A mid-range budget of around $28,000 also ranks high in the return on investment.
What is your budget?
We’ve recently seen bathroom remodels ranging from a $5,500 powder room to a $75,000 master bathroom and everything in between. We suggest you arrive at a maximum budget you are comfortable with. From there, create a wish list and prioritize it. When you start to approach your budget threshold, your Designer can help you rule out extras that don’t show up on your “must-have” list.
