Tips for Planning Your Bathroom Remodel

July 1, 2019

There are a number of reasons to remodel your bathroom. Maybe you’re planning on selling and are looking to make your home more appealing, or maybe you just want to change things up a bit. No matter why you want to do it, remodeling a bathroom can be both frustrating and costly.

Here at Bath Doctor we’ve provided bathroom remodeling services to Maryland for years now and have learned a few things along the way. We wanted to take some time today to share a little bit of what we’ve learned.

Keep Your Plumbing Where It Is

Nothing can add to the cost of a bathroom remodel like having to shift around the plumbing. Any kind of sizable plumbing project would also add a considerable amount of time to the remodel. You’re better off planning and building around your existing plumbing.

Don’t Replace Your Toilet

You may want to replace your toilet, but this is something else that will only serve to greatly increase the cost of the remodel. But you do want a new toilet, don’t you? One easy and cost-effective solution to this problem is to replace just the seat and lid, rather than the whole thing. You’d be amazed by what adding a new seat and lid can do, it’ll be just like a whole new commode!

Try Out Open Shelves

We hear customers giving lots of reasons for wanting to remodel their bathroom, but one of the most common is that it’s too small. Expanding the square footage is expensive, but there are other things you can do to give off the illusion of more space. Open shelves, for instance, can really help open up a room. The openness makes it seem like there’s more space than there actually is, any private items that you don’t want displayed can be placed in a basket.

What Color Do You Want?

If you’d like to completely change the design of your bathroom, then you should definitely consider repainting it. Going from white to blue or yellow is a big change, one big enough to make you forget all about your old bathroom. You don’t necessarily need to go for anything bold, just the simple fact that it’s a different color is enough to make the bathroom feel completely different.

Work With A Maryland Bathroom Remodeling Expert

Over the years we’ve heard some horror stories. Many customers have called us to fix the “remodel” performed by a previous contractor. Trust us, there’s nothing worse than having your bathroom botched by an inexperienced contractor. You might think you’re saving some money, but in the long run it will end up costing you more. Even if you don’t notice it at first, some problems can linger, like when you find out years down the road that your tub was never properly sealed and mold has been growing underneath of it.

Don’t settle for anything less than the best. Make sure you hire a trained and licensed Maryland bathroom remodeler for your next renovation. Contact the professionals at Bath Doctor today – we’d be more than happy to help in any way we can.
