Bathroom Remodel / January 30, 2019 / Amie Thibault.
Whether it's a facelift or a total gut, that one room can make or break the deal - If you're working with a very limited budget you can decide which particular parts of your bathroom that you would like remodeled, such as the tub or the toilet or the sink. If money is not an issue, you may make the decision to remodel your whole bathroom. In addition to deciding what parts of your bathroom you would like remodeled, you will also have complete control over the products and materials used.
Cumbersome to Practical - Before. Baby blue tile lined a shower that leaked. After. Bright white wall tiles and a glass tub-shower enclosure update the room and brighten up the once-dark space. Kate Dickson, principal of Kate Dickson Design, started the redesign by introducing the floor tile to the clients. They loved it right away.
Checkered to Elegant - Before. Busy checkered tile surrounds the built-in bathtub and covers the floor. The homeowners wanted to remodel their space with materials that would better reflect the home’s original Victorian charm. After. Amy Storm and Lisa Abeln of Designstorms removed the half wall at the foot of the old tub, opening up the space. A new classic-style pedestal tub floats on the right side of the room. The changes created room for a larger makeup vanity across from a matching double-sink vanity. The team selected a cement floor tile with a light pattern to replace the old checkerboard design.
Market trends - Compared to the last decade, average bathroom has tripled in size. Current trends in remodeling bathroom include cabinet holding sinks, which are taking on the look of furniture. Radius cabinets are increasing by the day. They add a subtle finish to the room. Wall hung cabinets are common. Shallow drawers are more useful for storage.
