I like to consider myself a bit of a home remodeling expert because of all of the DIY projects I have taken on over the years in the multiple houses we have owned. My wife and I love flipping houses -- she likes to design and I like tinkering around with projects -- so we consider ourselves a dynamic duo when it comes to these things. One of the projects that always comes up with we purchase a home with the intention of revamping it and selling it for profit, is a bath remodel. Obviously, you are generally not doing to get a huge deal on a house that is already perfect. Most diamonds in the rough requite at minimum a bathroom remodel, if not an entire gut job.
I'm curious as to what people think of our current master suite -- I feel like it is outdated and in need of a facelift (much like myself) but we are intimidated by the bathroom remodel cost. I would love to be able to bring some new contemporary touches to the room to give it a more modern and trendy feel, but I am not quite sure what areas I should focus the budget on and what types of features would give us the most bang for our buck. I'm thinking that I should steer clear of any bathroom ideas that involve tearing out major elements like tile, tubs, showers etc. Our existing pieces are quite neutral so I am pretty sure that I can work them into a new design.
We love sharing recent jobs so that home owners can get ideas for designs or project they can take on on their own or with help from us. This recent small bathroom remodel is one of our favorite examples of how you can bring great style to a space no matter the size. Most interior designers say to avoid dark colors in small spaces, but rather to keep things light and area to give the illusion of a larger area. We threw all of those rules out of the window, and instead used dark grey bathroom shower ideas as our inspiration in order to create a cool modern look. The walls of the entire bathroom were covered in this cool hexagon shaped tile, and we used a coordinating mosaic marble on the shower floor and ceiling for a nice contrast.
My team and I have a final update regarding the bathroom overhaul we finished up for a client last week. We were able to exceed expectations and came in under the average bathroom remodel cost for a project of this size. The two significant features, the shower, and the bathtub were the toughest. Though we had to rip out the previous piece, the shower remodel was a complete success. We added two new shower heads with many customization, a marble interior, and benches along the side. A new piece we incorporated into the room to give it some variety was the curved tub, an ideal option for every family member.
One of the top jobs we get at our contracting firm is a master bathroom remodel, particularly in older homes that do not already have a spacious suite. As you probably know, bathrooms (especially in the master) are one of the main things that buyers look at and remember when they are viewing homes for sale. For this reason, we are often asked to do bathroom makeovers right before homeowners get ready to list their home. If you are thinking of undertaking a similar project, I would suggest keeping a few things in mind. First and foremost, stay away from any crazy or "out there" trends that may not last for more than a year or two.
Bathroom renovations are one of those home improvement projects that I absolutely dread taking on because they are always so involved and require a ton of decor decisions (more than I think are involved in a bedroom for example). For this reason, when we began our master bath update, I knew I wanted to go into the project with some clear style decisions made and several inspiration pictures to base them on. This beautiful modern design is the space that I used as the primary source of our bathroom remodel ideas this time around. I love the use of traditional marble tile alongside very modern floating vanities and a lovely soaking tub.
