Bathroom remodels can be an exciting journey to venture out on. Whether it’s wanting to improve functionality or design, or even increasing the value of your home, bathroom remodels are an opportunity to liven up such a vital piece of your home. But you might be curious…what should you know before you start? Today, we’ll be going through some of the most important tips to consider before you begin a bathroom remodel. 

Design for Accessibility: Many people will say that no two homes are alike and when it comes to a bathroom remodel, it's no different! As a homeowner, take a moment to think broadly about what you want out of this experience: what are my needs and preferences…what will check all my boxes…how do I make this space work for me? At the end of the day, you shouldn’t consider designing a bathroom around a current trend, but instead what will make your life easier. Consider the importance of accessibility and functionality. Are there any elements you can include in your design that will bring this space to the next level? 

Make niches for toiletries: And while we talk about designing for your personalized accessibility, this next tip is a great segway. Consider making niches for toiletries in your shower. Among the functional benefits like having a dedicated space to keep your assorted and, oftentimes, long forgotten shampoos, conditioners, and facial cleansers, speaking in terms of design, niches offer an opportunity to create depth in your shower, break up tile designs, and create a functional, modern look and feel.

Plan Your Layout: This next tip is a consideration towards function and design: planning your layout. If you’re a homeowner thinking about remodeling your kitchen, think about the space that’s afforded to you. Remodels don’t have to be one-dimensional, meaning if you can dream up a space, chances are there’s a contractor that can completely reimagine it in your new image. 

While we’ve covered some general tips here for your next bathroom remodel, let’s start talking about perhaps the most important part: the shower. There are many opportunities to really personalize this space, especially when we start to consider the tile options you have at your disposal. So, let’s dig in!

Consider texture and finish: This is where the fun begins. Bath design, similar to designing any other space in your home, comes down to a handful of components: materials, textures, finishes, and how these characteristics work together to compliment a multitude of elements. But bathrooms can be a bit different than, say, a kitchen that has so many different elements, from the cabinetry to the countertops to the hardware to the backsplash and on and on. Bathrooms are smaller and, because of this, leave a quicker impression on the eyes. So, when making the most of less space, choosing something like the texture and finish of your shower can leave a lasting impact, especially for a space that will see a lot of use. When shopping for your shower wall finishes, you’ll run into a multitude of options, from acrylic to fiberglass to ceramic, porcelain, solid surface, and beyond. While each finish comes with its own benefits, it will ultimately come down to your personal preference. Make sure to do your research and find the right texture and finish that best aligns with your project’s goals!

Consider Grout Color: Perhaps going hand in hand with your shower tile is grout color. What could potentially be an overlooked aspect of the bathroom remodel can actually leave a lasting impact. Grout color can significantly elevate your shower wall tile selection. A white grout color could pop against darker tile while darker colored grout could help seamlessly blend your wall together. 

Install Quality Fixtures: Lastly, it’s important to consider the fixtures you’re including with your remodel. A bathroom could be masterfully remodeled, but if it’s not complimented with fixtures that match the design goals, your project could fall flat. Investing here as well will ensure that your project achieves cohesion on all levels. 

Above all, though, it’s important to find a trusted contractor that can handle your project’s needs with efficiency and unmatched craftsmanship. Interested in learning how Kitchen Magic, Kitchen and Bath Solutions can elevate your bathroom space? Let’s get connected today!
