Top 9 Bathroom Renovation Tips

Tired of looking at the same old bathroom? If you are one of the countless homeowners considering a bathroom remodel, you’re in great company. We are passionate about bathroom renovations and are eager to share many bathrooms remodel ideas that are bound to make all the difference in your bathroom.

Two common misconceptions about bathroom renos – there’s only so much you can do with your bathroom space, and bathroom renovations are complicated. While there are some complexities involved in renovating a bathroom, there are bathroom experts like Black Pearl Custom Homes who take all the hard work out of bathroom renos. A little goes a long way toward revitalizing your bathroom space. Here are some creative bathroom renovation tips you should consider.


Location is Important

Where things are located in your bathroom can make all the difference in convenience and flow in your bathroom. You want your bathroom not only to look good but be functional as well. While there is plenty of room for creativity, we recommend keeping the faucet, toilet, and shower where they are located.

If you can avoid changing the plumbing, do so. Relocating these fixtures will increase the amount of reno work needed and increase the cost significantly.  Instead, swap out your old toilet or faucets for more stylish and eco-friendly options.

Mix and Match Materials

Anytime you’re doing a renovation is an opportunity to explore new styles and designs. Experiment with different materials from different vendors so you can determine which ones are feasible for your budget and give you the quality you need.

Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice quality or style.

Explore Lighting Fixtures

Lighting is critical to the overall look and feel of your bathroom. Most bathrooms do not get much natural lighting and require artificial lighting to brighten up the space. Sometimes additional lighting is just what your bathroom needs.

Consider switching your lighting options and installing some LED recessed lights strategically in your bathroom. Some awesome areas to consider installing these are in your shower, above cabinetry, counters, or mirrors.

Choose the Right Flooring

Your flooring option in your bathroom needs to be functional and safe. Since bathrooms are prone to moisture, you need to find the flooring that is suitable for such conditions. Consider flooring made from material that offers versatility and style like porcelain, ceramic, or vinyl.

Many of these options are waterproof which can reduce the possibility of injury in your bathroom.

Use Wainscoting
