A wise man once told me “If at first you don’t succeed, keep flushing!” Now that’s the kind of advice that sticks with a man!
Okay okay, enough of the bathroom jokes…
Remodeling a bathroom in your home can be one of the most rewarding projects. An updated bathroom can increase the appeal of a home and easily add to it’s character. Why not make your bathroom the perfect retreat destination after a long hard day. Can you say “Whirlpool Tub”?!
Bathroom remodels can range from simple to complex – and anything in between. The reasons for this could involve plumbing modifications or additions, electrical work, wall removal, and more.
Handy homeowners may choose to perform a bathroom remodel on their own. While the average homeowner would be wise to hire a qualified bathroom remodeling contractor like Sears Home Services.
Bathroom Remodeling Ideas:
Lots of Bright Lights
Lighting is an essential component to any modern bathroom design. I mean, who doesn’t like a bright bathroom? Go for LED lighting for optimal energy savings and brightness. I recently switched all of my bathroom lights to LEDs and it just about doubled in brightness! Dedicated shower or bath lighting is also a great idea.
New Vanity Counter Top and Cabinets
Aside from the tub or shower, the vanity is the focal point of a bathroom. That’s why its wise to dedicate sufficient funding to buying the perfect vanity and counter top for your bathroom remodel job. If it’s a master bathroom, a double vanity is ideal if space permits. Vanities can be pricey, but right now you can save $500 on cabinets replacement of $1500 or more from Sears Home Services.
Another option is to replace the vanity top and keep the existing cabinet. This is what we did in our last home. This updated the look of our bathroom, but was less harsh on our budget. Now is a great time to act because you can save $250 on countertop only purchases of $1500 or more through Sears Home Services.
What’s a bathroom remodel without new flooring? Bathroom flooring choices are so many – ceramic tile, porcelain tile, and vinyl are all good choices. Large tile is trending right now. You can find various types of realistic wood and stone tiles that are 48 inches long. Flooring designs like these will add an eye catching “pop” to your bathroom. Sears Home Services is providing up to 12 month Special Financing available on installed Flooring.
Wall tile can add a sophisticated look to any small or large bathroom. If you have a small bathroom, consider tiling all walls. If you’re working with a larger bathroom, tiling around the 3 walls that contain shower or tub is a good strategy. Tiling the walls of a shower stall or bathtubs can add a high level of design to your space. What I like about tile is that your design is only limited by budget. There are so many tiles to choose from, you can customize to your heart’s content.
The shower or bathtub is the other main focal point of a bathroom. Everybody that walks into a bathroom for the first time wants to check out the shower or bath. The more space you have, the more options you have. I like whirlpool tubs or large showers with multiple shower heads.
Bathroom Remodel Contractor
As I mentioned above, bathroom remodels can be the most rewarding project you decide to take on in your home. A newly designed and remodeled bathroom will add character and appeal to your home for years to come. Don’t take on a project you can’t handle though. Plumbing, tiling, or electrical mistakes can be dangerous and costly, so it’s not worth doing it yourself unless you’ve done this type of work before.
Sears Home Services makes it super easy to remodel a bathroom. They’ll work with you from the beginning to choose the right design for your home and budget.
