About Bathroom Remodeling


If you're here, you likely already know that remodeling your bathroom offers a number of benefits. You're most likely aware that it can add value to your home. You already know that it adds usefulness, especially for older homes that may only have one bathroom, or if it has multiple bathrooms, they're outdated. 


These are the obvious benefits. We detail more below, and we also detail reasons not to remodel your kitchen -- or rather, how to tell if it's not the time just yet. 


Reasons To Remodel Your Bathroom:



Benefits Of Remodeling Your Bathroom:


In addition to updating and modernizing your bathroom, which will inevitably add utility and usefulness, a bathroom remodel project might increase morale and satisfaction with the house. It might make your house feel more like home. In addition to that, a bathroom remodel project might give you a feeling of accomplishment. It's something that you and your spouse can do together, and maybe doing so will help you two grow closer in the process.

Reasons Not to Remodel:


As many benefits as there are to remodeling your bathroom, you do want to be careful that you don't embark on such a project for the wrong reasons. Below, we've detailed a few reasons that should not be factors in your decision.


What we want to do is be smart about what improvements we make, to invest our money wisely in the things that really matter, to create bathrooms that are wonderful retreats without looking like a room in Versailles.


Things To Know Before Doing So:



Materials Needed For A Bathroom Remodel:

For the DIY elements of a remodel, you'll likely need standard construction tools, such as drills, hammers, screws, nails, measuring tape, table saws and sandpaper. For cutting tiles, you will need a wet saw and a razor knife. For demolition, you will need a sledgehammer, chisel and even a jackhammer for cemented items that are too difficult to break apart with a mallet.


Furnishings and fixtures needed in a bathroom are a toilet, vanity with sink, light source, bathtub or shower. You will also need pipes to connect these items to plumbing and make them functional. Storage space, such as medicine cabinets, shelving or built-in storage will also be needed for this space. Towel racks, soap dishes and shower curtains are staples in any bathroom.


Don't forget about safety items, including eye protection and thick work gloves. These materials are especially important during demolition where debris can be a big nuisance. Always wear closed-toe comfortable work shoes as well. 


We love and encourage a DIY project, but we don't want you to get in over your head. To make sure your project is finished and done right, let's work together. Contact us to get started.

Tips for Bathroom Remodel:


For those who want to take on a bit of DIY, we thought we'd provide a few tips we've acquired in our years of experience as a bathroom remodeler in Bloomington and Champaign.


Vanity height: In years past, 30 inches the standard vanity height. Nowadays, a number of homes feature a 36-inch vanity, which is comfortable for many adults. However, if a 36-inch vanity is too high for you, and you don’t want to invest in a custom vanity, consider a floating one. These can be placed at just about any height you’d like.


Other things to Consider:


Cost Of Bathroom Remodeling:

Your average entry-level bathroom remodeling project will run anywhere from $3000 on the low side to $12000 on the higher side. You could, of course, spend less or more on each end depending on how in-depth you wanted your remodel to be. An intermediate project may run from $12000 to $30,000, and a deluxe remodel will likely come with a price tag of over $30,000.
