The Bathroom Remodel Basics
The basics are probably what prompted you to choose to remodel your bathroom in the first place. Make a list of the main features you’ll need for your remodel. For example:
- Are you remodeling to enhance accessibility? A walk-in shower or safety tub is a good choice.
- Tired of your tub taking up too much space? Add a tub to shower conversion to the list.
- Is an old bathtub running up your utility bills? A replacement tub is a necessary fix.
Budgets are a big deal, and the team at Tundraland wants to help you stick to the budget you’re comfortable with. Deciding on your bathroom remodel’s budget is important, to get started, ask yourself the following questions:
- What needs to be replaced?
- Which elements are worth the splurge and which should be kept modest to cut costs?
- Are there certain things to keep in mind for resale?
- Are there any expenses my remodeling team suggests adding to be safe?
Working with Tundraland’s home improvement designers and craftsmen will give you the best guidance on creating a realistic budget that works for your family. Tundraland even offers free, in-home consultations that include a budget assessment. Check to see if you’re included in our service area.
Perhaps you’re hoping for a Zen spa atmosphere to help you relax from the hustle and bustle in Appleton or Oshkosh. Maybe green and gold is on your mind to complement your Packer-themed lifestyle in Green Bay. Or you may want to update the look and feel of your bathroom, to better fit in with your rustic Northwoods-style escape in Wausau. Whatever the case, identifying your style early on will keep you focused and consistent as you select features and décor.
When selecting a style, think about details like:
- Color scheme
- Natural lighting
Fixtures and Extras
Aside from big items like bathtubs, showers and sinks, there are many important “extras” that go into creating the bathroom of your dreams. During the remodeling preparation period, you’ll need to choose which components work best with your budget and style. Work with your designer to choose the perfect finishing touches, like:
Think about items in your current bathroom that you’d like to transfer over. Is your towel warmer an important part of your morning routine? What about that favorite large potted plant? Plan ahead to make sure there’s a spot to put extras like these after the remodel.
One of the most important features of any bathroom is storage. Don’t forget to plan spaces to keep your towel supplies and toiletries accessible and organized. If you’re working with a tight space, check out clever bathroom storage ideas as a solution.
