Is this your first time tackling a bathroom project for your home? Maybe it's not but you want to make sure you are planning this bathroom renovation with all things considered. Here are some handy tips for your bathroom remodeling that will get you on the right track. Keep on reading to prepare for the bathroom of your dreams, and the bathroom that you are looking for with the help of your friends from American Bath located in South Florida.

1.Plan a Budget

Remodeling your bathroom can be a pricey home project to tackle, and can be a big investment in which time may also be a factor. You’ll want to make sure you have enough saved for this project, or that are currently able to spend on this investment. If you don’t have a solid budget plan in place, nor are financially prepared, you will be left to deal with hefty bills and purchases. Make sure that when you plan a budget for your bathroom renovation, you include the cost of every fixture, from tiles and lightbulbs to windows and vanities. Set up what it is that you can realistically afford and handle at the time and decide whether it's worth making the changes now, or continue saving until you can have a complete renovation.

Consider the following things while creating a budget:

  • Do you want to change the plumbing?
  • Half bath
  • Standard bathroom
  • Wet bathroom

2.Choose the Bathroom Type

Shape, size, style… bathrooms can have a completely different look by the way you style them, and that can change the type of bathroom it is. Make sure to speak to a professional about any ideas you may be considering in terms of the design, which can transform a bathroom to a completely different one. They can advise you on what is best and what you may want to reconsider. Here are a few different bathroom types to consider:

  • Half bath
  • Standard bathroom
  • Wet bathroom

3.Create a Layout

The next thing to keep in mind is the layout of the bathroom. The layout will depend on the size and shape of the existing bathroom. There can be numerous variations, and choosing a layout is imperative even before you think about the aesthetics. It is advisable to work with the existing layout as moving things around will require you to shift the plumbing, which can be a costly process. Ideally, if you have a small space, the choices for bathroom layouts will also be limited. At our showroom, we have many bathroom fixtures for a variety of bathroom styles, located in in South Florida.

4.Choosing a Bathtub

Adding a bathtub to your bathroom can be a pro both in terms of comfort, and home value increase. A bathtub can be a good idea if you plan to sell your home anytime soon, but if your plan is to stay and enjoy your home for as long as possible, comfort is still another reason worth considering it. At American Bath, we have a wide selection to choose from at our showroom in Miami. We are located near Palmetto Bay in South Florida, and carry the best brands at affordable prices.

5.Think about the Lighting

Lighting is another important aspect to think about for your bathroom. You can opt for more natural lighting, warm lighting, cool lighting, or LED lighting. The light fixtures are also something you may want to consider. Lighting fixtures can add character to your space, or stay minimal to let other parts of the bathroom speak and create a different tone.

... Ta-Da!

While remodeling your bathroom can be a big responsibility to take on, which may cost time and money, it can be so rewarding afterwards, and even fun in the process. Just make sure to plan ahead and with consideration of certain points such as the ones listed above, you should be on the right track to bathroom better suited for you and your home.
