When starting any home renovation, there really is no end of things to think about. It seems as though when a decision is made on one thing, it opens up another set of decisions to make.  Home improvement can easily start to feel like a never-ending process.  We’d like to share with you our three top tips to set you on the right track.


Yes, pretty much everyone that starts a bathroom remodel wants a new look to better suit their tastes.  However, when thinking about your specific bathroom, where are your greatest struggles; what creates the most problems?  Is there enough room to store towels, toiletries, etc?  Do you have enough light to put on make-up, shave, etc?  Have you ever actually used that tub?  Sit down with your family and make a list of these “needs” vs. “wants”. You’ll start to see your new bathroom take shape.


Nobody likes to talk about money, but according to Remodeling Magazine, the average bathroom remodel in 2016 cost $18,000.  That’s not chump change for most folks.  First, take a look at your “needs vs wants” list. Do some research and start putting actual numbers next to those “need items.”  Even if you’re a dedicated DIYer, you’ll likely have some labor costs to tackle any intricate plumbing or electrical work. Don’t forget about these costs!  Finally, add at least 10 percent padding for unexpected costs. Consider increasing this budget if your home is older, since you never know what could be hiding behind that drywall!  Finally, look at your “wants” and see if they’re still within your reach!

Professional Design

You’re all but guaranteed a better result with just about everything when you engage with a trained and experienced professional.  Bathroom design is no exception.  Many homeowner’s main complaint about their bathrooms is the small size.  An experienced bathroom designer can do wonders with a small space, and will offer suggestions that you may not have considered.

    Hello. I’ve been browsing online until I have seen this post of yours. As my own experience, bathroom remodel really did make a tremendous difference in your mood, especially on dreary mornings! So we have hired a contractor to fullfil my dream bathroom and we found Tom and his crew! We wanted to thank you for your time and patience with helping us finalize the details for our bathroom! Watching and consulting with them, i do realized their knowledge, reputation and passion for just two months, Big Yes for our Master Bath and two guest bathrooms!

    Thanks for the tips for renovating a bathroom! My husband and I really want a new Bathroom Designs so we can have an updated look. I like that you mentioned engaging with a trained and experienced professional. Our bathroom is pretty small, so anything that can serve more than one purpose could be a big help.
