Tips for a Successful Bathroom Remodel

Starting plans for a bathroom remodeling project? Feeling stressed about how to take the first step? Fear not! With a few simple considerations before you start your project, you’ll set yourself up for success (and a beautiful new bathroom). Here are some tips that Design Builder Las Vegas has found to be tried and true when remodeling a bathroom space:

1) Know Your Budget

Most homeowners go to their contractor with a budget in mind. Just make sure you’ve considered all angles when coming up with an amount. Don’t forget to include things like lighting, faucets and paint—everything you’ll need in a finished bathroom. You’ll save yourself from going over your budget or compromising on essential components of your dream bathroom.

2) Mix Old with New

Are you in love with the gorgeous 50’s tile? Love the antique brass fixtures? Keep them! Nothing says you have to replace every single thing during your remodel. Mixing original components of your bathroom with new design preserves the integrity of your home and ensures a one-of-a-kind look. Design Builder Las Vegas knows a great design element when they see one—don’t be afraid to ask if you can keep some of your original home features. As a bonus, you’ll save money to use elsewhere.

3) Know Your Layout

There are a few things to consider when modifying the layout of your bathroom. First, you don’t want the toilet to be the first thing you see when you walk in. Secondly, you don’t want your bathroom to seem cramped because you chose a vanity or tub that is too big for your dimensions. Be creative—look for ways to save space, like a corner tub or sink. You’ll also want to pay attention to tile size. An oversized tile pattern will overwhelm a tiny bathroom. Likewise, a microscopic tile pattern might get lost in a huge bathroom space.

As you plan your dream bathroom remodel, Design Builder Las Vegas can help you make the right decisions throughout the building process, including lighting, ventilation and how your design elements will flow with the rest of your home. Remodeling doesn’t have to be a daunting task with the right plan in place.
