Winter is the perfect time to focus on updating the inside of your home. And while a bathroom is a highly visible and essential part of any home, it is often overlooked. Remodeling your bathroom is a great way to breathe new life into your home and improve its value. In this month’s blog, the experts at Oxland Builders offer some tips on planning your bathroom remodel.
Factors to Consider in Remodeling Your Bathroom
Before speaking with your contractor, take some time to think about why you want to remodel your bathroom. Consider the following questions:
- Is your remodel about functionality, style and color, or both?
- Who is the bathroom designed for? Adults? Kids? Both? Males? Females? Both?
- What kind of style are you looking for? Classic? Contemporary? Mid-century? Modern? Bohemian chic?
- How do you plan to use your bathroom? A quick shower in the morning? Leisurely, relaxing soaks in a jacuzzi tub at night?
When planning your bathroom, it’s important to consider both your personal aesthetic taste and lifestyle, which will factor into the cost of your remodel.
As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” When planning your remodel, go online to gather inspiration for your dream bathroom. From flooring and tile, to fixtures and cabinetry, Pinterest can be a great resource. For additional ideas, visit Oxland’s custom bathroom remodeling page on Houzz.
Know Your Budget
Before you get started on any remodeling project, you need to know what you can afford to spend. “I always discuss our client’s budget and ways to design their remodel within their comfort zone,” explains Brad Sawler, owner of Oxland Builders. “It’s important for clients to have an upfront understanding of how their decisions affect the final costs of remodeling,” he adds.
