Many homeowners begin to contemplate remodeling their homes to accommodate out-of-town guests, growing families, and social celebrations. In this three-part series, Parker Design Build Remodel shares our experience, tips, and insight to help you maximize your space and make your home more inviting and the bathroom is a great place to start. But, don’t delay! Time is ticking and now is the right time to get your holiday remodeling project underway so it will be completed before your guests arrive! These bathroom remodeling ideas will give you the inspiration you need to get started.
If your home will be entertaining more guests, chances are the bathroom will see a fair share of that traffic. Does your powder room need a face-lift? Do you need an extra bathroom to accommodate a houseful of overnight guests? Is your current bathroom dated and ready for a bathroom remodel? Here are some ideas to help make your bathroom more inviting and comfortable for guests.
Bathroom Remodeling Layouts
The layout is the first step to consider in bathroom remodeling. If your home or bathroom is 20+ years or older, you may have a layout that needs an update. There are plenty of ways to update your bathroom to make it feel larger. If you have several bathrooms in your home, you may not need to have bathtubs in all of them. Often, a tub can be converted into a shower and you can pick up 12-15 square feet of additional space. Adding a skylight or window to a bathroom will bring in additional light to brighten the space.
Consider updating old powder rooms by tearing out the old builder-grade built-in cabinets and dressing it up with a new vanity that looks more like furniture. This can make the space feel comfy and inviting. Don’t forget to include the powder room in your holiday decorating. Adding a touch of holiday cheer to the powder room is another way to create a warm space. Adding a basket filled with small ornaments or a little evergreen can make the space warm and cozy.
Adding More Bathrooms
One of the best home improvements you can make, for a good return on investment, is the addition or update of a bathroom. Bathroom remodeling is a good investment! Your guests will appreciate the added privacy and convenience of having their own bathroom, and you’ll get a nice return on your investment whenever you decide to sell! Many of our clients are able to reallocate space with our design build approach to the process, but a home addition may be a better way to add more space to add another bathroom for convenience.
If you’re thinking about remodeling or adding a bathroom to your home for the holidays, don’t delay! Now is the time to get started so your bathroom can be ready when your guests arrive! Check out our latest projects and contact us today for a free design consultation!
Bathroom Lighting & Fixtures
Good lighting is essential in a bathroom. It can create a warm and inviting atmosphere and also make the space more functional. Consider upgrading your lighting by adding recessed lighting, pendant lights, or a chandelier. You can also add dimmer switches to control the brightness of your lights. Gold is also making a big comeback when it comes to fixtures. The hardware on your cabinets, mirrors and accessories adds just the right finishing touch to any bathroom remodel.
Bathroom Vanity Cabinets
A new vanity can transform the look and feel of your bathroom. There are many different styles and sizes of vanities to choose from, so consider your needs and the overall style of your bathroom. You can choose a vanity with a single sink or one with two sinks, depending on the size of your bathroom and your family’s needs.
Storage is a crucial element in any bathroom. Consider adding more storage space by installing cabinets or shelves. At Parker Design Build Remodel, our custom wood shop can create any type of storage you need, for the small nook or larger closet organization. You can also use baskets or decorative boxes to store your bathroom essentials. Consider adding a built-in shelf or cabinet next to your bathtub or shower for added convenience.
