Bathroom Renovation Ideas in Solon and Twinsburg
A bathroom renovation is no easy task, especially if you’re planning to gut your existing bathroom down to the studs. But if done right, a bathroom remodel can give you the spa-like retreat you’ve been dreaming of and even up the value of your home for resale purposes.
On the flip side, a bathroom remodeling job gone awry not only will leave you frustrated, but out a significant chunk of change without seeing a tangible benefit in return.
So before you rip up the tile and order that custom vanity, here are a few things to consider.
Just because the toilet was placed next to the sink and opposite the bathtub 50 years ago doesn’t mean that’s how it has to stay for the next 50 years. Yes, changing the footprint of a bathroom will up the price tag, but it could pay off in the long run if the end result is a more spacious, functional room.
Back in the day, your typical bathroom vanity was about 30 inches high. While that was great for washing little faces and hands, it wasn’t so comfortable for most adults. Today’s standard vanities are 36-inch high; if that’s too high, consider a floating vanity that can be placed at a height that best works for you and your family. The same goes for mirrors, shower heads, and other accessories like towel racks and toilet paper holders.
If you want an easy-care bathroom floor, avoid porous materials that can absorb stains over time and consider larger, smooth tile substances like glazed porcelain with a tighter grout line. However, for a safer, anti-slip option, take a closer look smaller tiles with lots of grout for improved traction. Other non-slip surfaces include cork and rubber.
From cascading-rain shower heads and body jets to zero-threshold entries and built-in niches, today’s shower options are limitless. Also, by removing the tub, you can make room for that luxurious shower experience you’ve been thirsting for. For resale purposes, however, it’s a good idea not to remove the ONLY bathtub in your home.
