Remodeling your bathroom is a common home project that comes with some myths about what is needed during a remodel. There is lots of misinformation that is circulating the internet about bathroom must haves and other misconceptions that homeowners have to sift through.
Here are some common myths about bathroom remodels that you should know when you start to consider a remodel. Keeping in mind all of your options is important before taking advice about home remodel and working with a professional home remodeler.
You Have To Have A Big Budget
The first big myth is that bathroom remodels have to be expensive. While there is a grain of truth to this, not all remodels have to be expensive. How much you spend on any project is up to you. Cost depends on what projects you complete yourself or what remodeling company you go through.
Moving toilets, bathtubs or expanding the bathroom will add to the cost, but a good remodel does not need to change the entire layout of your bathroom.
Your Remodel Needs To Add Luxury
This myth also has to do with price and product. Some will say that a bathroom remodel needs to be the next sanctuary of your home. While that can certainly be true, there is no need to splurge on luxury fixtures or flooring if you do not need them. There are options that are budget friendly that will add beauty and tranquility to your bathroom. Jetted bathtubs, marble floors and walk-in showers are high end and are not necessary. Good bathroom remodels update what is necessary and can look just as beautiful without high end.
Extra Features Lead To A Higher Utility Bill
The impact of adding bathroom features depends on what is included. Eco-friendly lighting and appliances can actually lower your utility bill. Don’t let this myth make you settle. If you have questions about how to keep costs low while adding eco-friendly fixtures, you can talk to us at Cole Val.
Overhead Lighting Is The Only Option
Overhead lighting is seen as one of the only options for homeowners which is not true. Recessed lights are also a good option for bathrooms. These options are unobtrusive and are creative fixtures that come in many shades and sizes.
Tile Is The Only Way To Go
Having tile flooring or even walls in your bathroom can be the obvious option, but it isn’t the end all be all. There are other flooring types that are more water resistant and durable. Concrete, glass, wood or even rubber can be options for your picture perfect bathroom. Whatever flooring you choose, the color, texture and vibe of the flooring need to match the rest of your bathroom. Not only should you consider design when choosing a flooring but also the functionality of it.
There may be other bathroom remodel myths that can stop you in your tracks. Bathroom remodels can be as extensive or light as you want. Remodels don’t have to be an overwhelming experience.
