Remodeling Your Bathroom

Even small bathrooms can require expensive materials for a perfect remodeling. But you really don’t need to spend more than you should for this project. You can remodel your bathroom for about $2000.

Here are few tips that you might need during the remodeling project:

Have everything on hand

Some items like special-order tile and vanity top can take weeks before they arrive. So you need some patience: Before taking a hammer to your bathroom, you should make sure all necessary items are on hand — including the plumbing fixtures, vanity, the tile, the tub, and any new lighting.

Plan for shower storage

You’ll need an in-shower storage for your soap, shampoo, body wash, razor, and so on. The point of remodeling is to make your bathroom look classy, so don’t settle for those basic plastic units that hang from the showerhead; they can ruin the whole new design. Instead, you can install ceramic tile shelving in the corner of your shower. These shelves cost about $10 in tile stores. You can as well construct in-the-wall shelves. A finished shelf, a tiled one especially, looks totally attractive and doesn’t extend beyond the surface of the shower.

Tear up the underlayment

Removal of old flooring tile can be difficult and time-consuming, in fact, some pieces won’t even come off. A faster and simpler way to do this is to tear up the underlayment together with the floor covering. Dividing the underlayment into smaller sections allows for an easier removal.

Use accent tiles

Mosaic or glass tiles are quite expensive, but you actually don’t need so much to add some style to your bathroom. A dozen sheets can make a big impact in your bathroom.

Get yourself a curved shower rod

A curved shower rod surprisingly adds more space to your shower. Although, you’ll have to pay more for a curved rod which is about $28, as opposed to paying $6 which is the starting price for a conventional straight rod. In addition to the extra space in your shower, the curved shower rods look really attractive and they are attached to the wall using screws instead of tension, therefore, you don’t have to worry about them being pulled down.

Aside from these tips mentioned above, there are also more remodeling ideas like updating the lighting, adding a spacer to the flange, and don’t be afraid to hire a pro.
