Naples remodeling showroomLike it or not, the bathroom is one of the rooms of the house where we spend the most time. Between showering, getting ready for the day, and other bathroom duties it can get pretty stale looking at the same wall patterns, floor colors, and general layout. Therefore one of the most popular remodeling choices is in the bathroom but before settling on a design, take into consideration these 5 worthwhile tips.

1. How much will it cost

The first thing to take into account before planning the design of a bathroom remodeling is if the time is right. According to the 2015 Cost vs Value Report a bathroom remodel in Florida is a $15, 314 job on average. If you plan on adding a bathroom that’s going to set you back $36,445. The last thing you want to do is have to compromise on coveted bathroom features so make sure the funds are available or if you’d have a better plan of attack with waiting a year and saving more money for the project.


2. What to Expect

Another question to ask before designing the bathroom is “why are we doing this?” It’s a valid question that can be answered with

  1. Our bathroom is disgusting
  2. We want to increase the comfort of the room
  3. To increase the home’s resale


3. How to hide the toilet

One design tip to remember first off is to somehow hide the toilet when the door is open. Even though the toilet is a must-have in the bathroom, it shouldn’t be the focal point of the design. Start the design process by placing the toilet in the most discreet place or plan on creating privacy with a partition or half-wall.


4. Layer the Lighting

The effectiveness of any room’s lighting depends on layering and that’s crucial even in the bathroom. There is task lighting for getting ready or cleaning the room or accent lighting to add a peaceful ambiance. Sometimes even decorative lighting serves no purpose other than to give the bathroom some unique style.


5. Hire a Layout Professional

Perhaps the tip that offers the most convenience is to hire a remodeling professional like Palm Brothers to help plan the design.
