Are you ready to start a bathroom remodel? The first thing you need to do is hire a design build remodeling company. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over 1 million employed construction laborers in the United States, but not all of them are design build contractors. When you work with a reputable design build firm like ours at Wenger Contracting, there will be some decisions you’ll need to make about the look of your bathroom remodel.
Decision #1: The Style
The first decision to make for your bathroom remodel is the style you’re going for. If the rest of your home is contemporary, do you want the bathroom to match? You could also opt for a bold design that is unique to the bathroom.
Decision #2: The Flooring and Walls
For the floors, you have the option of luxury vinyl, engineered wood planks, linoleum, or tile options, such as stone, ceramic, porcelain, and more. Next, you have some wall options. You could choose to use drywall painted to match your style in the majority of the bathroom, keeping all the tiles in the shower, or you can use various tile materials to create texture on your bathroom walls.
Decision #3: The Sink, Tub, and Shower
When thinking about the sink, tub, and shower, consider your needs. If you have a single-basin sink, then a double-basin sink where you and your partner both have your own space could be a great idea. If you’re not a bath person, then perhaps eliminating the bath and installing a luxurious, spacious shower is what you need. Don’t forget about the fixtures, too. You can choose from stainless steel, brass, brushed nickel, and more!
Decision #4: The Countertops and Cabinets
Your countertops and cabinets can make or break your bathroom style, so be sure to consider these carefully. You’ll want to choose cabinets that are durable but also match your style, whether that be slab doors, raised, or Shaker designs. For the countertops, you can go with granite, marble, quartz, and more. This can be a difficult decision, so know that our design build remodeling firm is here to help with the details.
Decision #5: The Lighting
Most people underestimate just how important the lighting is in a bathroom. Aside from natural light, you’ll need to decide if you’d like ceiling or wall lighting fixtures, recessed or pendant lighting fixtures, or something else. Some lighting options may work better in your bathroom remodel than others, and our design build bathroom remodeling company will be happy to go over this with you.
