Bathroom Remodel Raleigh

If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then the bathroom is the sanctuary. The master bathroom, guest bathroom, and even the downstairs half-bath should all feel comfortable and clean. Our REALTORS® know that a little renovating in these important spaces can go a long way. Here are six bathroom remodeling ideas that will inspire you to refresh the room where your family and guests freshen up.

  1. Bathe Yourself in Beauty
    Aside from larger master bathrooms that may feature a tub and a shower, most bathrooms contain one or the other. A great way to refresh this space is to swap out a tub for a shower or vice versa. You can remove your tub to create a walk-in shower with dual showerheads or a waterfall shower head. Alternatively, you could scrub the shower from the plans and instead install a lovely stand-alone tub for maximum relaxation.

  2. Give Each Other Space
    If you have a single sink built into a long countertop with significant underneath cabinetry space available, you may have the opportunity to trade this excess storage space for a more practical solution. Measure your countertops, and if you have adequate space, you can install his and her sinks to give you and your partner able space to get ready without investing in a large remodeling budget.

  3. Talk About Tile
    If you're looking for a hands-on project, look to the floors and walls for an opportunity. Bathrooms are excellent spaces to let your creativity flow freely, which is why many homeowners choose to replace their flooring and wall paint with gorgeous tiles. From large limestone or marble slabs to smaller subway tiles or a mosaic of mini shapes, your opportunities are nearly endless.

  4. Save Space
    For those with small bathrooms, you need all the space you can get. Make the bathroom seem larger without adding on square-footage by discovering space-savers. For instance, you can replace your sink and cabinet with a floating sink or vanity with a thin base. You can also install a larger mirror to make the space seem visually larger.

  5. Let Light In
    Light plays a vital role in the appeal of a bathroom, which is why you should never settle for harsh or yellow lighting. Replace old fluorescent bulbs with tunable bulbs that can be temperature adjusted to control the brightness and color of the light. Let natural light in by enlarging your window or adding a skylight. To control the heat, glare, and light streaming through the space throughout the day, install motorized window shades that can eliminate intrusive exterior light with the flip of a switch.

  6. Improve By Improvising
    When we think about remodeling, the first thought that comes to mind is to take on a large-scale home improvement project. However, there are plenty of ways that you can affordably refresh this space with minimal effort. Replacing fixtures like the lights, cabinetry hardware, faucets, and even towel racks can make a big difference. Cleaning dirty grout and recaulking around the bathroom fixtures can also breathe new life into the space without the need for serious renovations. Even a new paint color on the walls with new complementary-colored décor will make your bathroom feel brand new.
