Are you thinking of redesigning your Bathroom?

Here are a few tips to consider A - Z

Begin with a budget and unifying theme and colors, think about the rest of your home.  Check out some ideas on Pinterest, start a board of all the ideas you like.  Then narrow it down and be ready to commit to one idea.  Also ask a professional Realtor for their opinion, I'm happy to assist you.

Accessories: Accessories include decoration, wall hangings, art and sink essentials. .

Clearances: All fixtures should be at least 30 inches apart. There should be 30 by 48 inches in front of the sink, 24 inches around the toilet and 45 by 30 inches in front of the tub.

Colors: Bright colors add light to a room. Pastels make the room appear larger. When in doubt, use white.

Countertops: Choose from tile, solid surfacing (like Corian), Formica and Polyester resin.

Flooring: Most important: a non-skid surface.

Floor plan: The toilet should not be visible from outside the bathroom, nor be the first thing you see upon entering.

Lighting: Halogen or fiber optic lighting help to brighten up the bathroom.

Safety: Protect all electrical outlets with a ground-fault circuit interrupter; place switches at least 60 inches from water sources.

Showers: Install swinging doors to swing outward to avoid trapping the user.

Storage: Storage doors should swing clear of fixtures.

Tubs: Platform-mounted tubs should be no more than one step off the floor. Ventilation: Install an inexpensive fan.


Do you need more ideas and want to discuss further? I would be happy to show you some homes with updated bathrooms.  Give me a call and we can make arrangements.

If you are doing any updates to improve the value of your home, its always best to first review with a Professional Realtor for their opinion and insight.   Too many times homeowners make costly mistakes when doing upgrades or remodeling and then get disappointed and frustrated.   We don't want that to happen!

Let me know if I can assist you or any friends with any real estate questions including the current value of your home and key steps to take 'prior' to selling your home for the highest, best offer.
