Four Tips to Happy Bathroom Remodeling Choices

Bathroom remodeling dreams often start out extravagantly big and end with very practical realities and compromises. If there turns out to be no way you can have that luxurious in-floor bathtub, that doesn’t mean you can’t be completely happy with what your upcoming bathroom remodeling project ultimately yields for you. Here’s how to get the bathroom you want with the space and budget you have.

Found your bathroom remodeler yet?

Of course, it goes without saying that you need to partner with a bathroom builder who can get the job done quickly and efficiently. Ask friends, neighbors and relatives for recommendations, research these recommendations online and read their online reviews, then meet with them to show your ideas and ask for a quote. Ideally, you should meet with three or four different builders.

Come prepared

When you first meet with your bathroom remodeler, be sure to bring a collection of photos to clearly convey what you want to achieve. With the photos, your builder can more easily grasp your desired style and provide recommendations for plumbing features.

Consider the faucet as the ‘center of attention’

The faucet is more than just a plumbing fixture—it’s the main feature of the bath. Of all the items in your bathroom remodel that you can scrimp on, the faucet should never be one of them as it is the item that will be seen and used every time the bathroom is used.

Go for uniformity

Let the rest of your plumbing features match the style of your faucet. For a more traditional look, oil-rubbed bronze and polished nickel are excellent choices. Angular fixtures are highly preferred for a more contemporary appeal. For those with tight budgets, chrome fixtures should allow a little more financial wiggle room with your remodeling project.

Once you have your choices, visit a home improvement showroom and evaluate your selections in person. Don’t forget to ask about warranties to make sure you get years of use out of your choices.
