Expert Advice for Your Next Bathroom Remodel

Written by Hanna Plumbing & Heating / June 23, 2022

Aside from your kitchen or bedroom, your bathroom is one of the most used spaces in your home. It’s easy to write it off, but it could be one of the most beneficial remodels you do. Of course, there’s the obvious purpose of a bathroom, but it’s also the space where you apply that new skincare product you’ve been excited about, add finishing touches before you head out to meet friends, teach your kiddo best handwashing practices, and so much more.

A lot of crucial, routine things occur in a bathroom, which is exactly why it is a space you should love. Whether it’s the entire design or just an old leaky toilet standing in your way—we can help!

Benefits of Remodeling Your Bathroom

In addition to aesthetics, remodeling your bathroom comes with financial, quality of living, and environmental benefits, too.

Financially, a bathroom remodel can increase the value of your home. Not only will you reap the benefits while you live there, but also if you decide to sell later. Replacing old, leaky toilets or bath fixtures can save you money on your water bill right away while also being better for the environment!

Quality of living can also be improved, especially if your current bathroom tends to have a lot of disorganization and clutter, which can be a frustrating way to start and end your day. The good news is that remodels are the perfect time to maximize space and incorporate better storage and organization. Moving things around or adding containers and labels can make a huge difference in the day-to-day functionality of a bathroom.

In addition to fixing issues, remodels can add peaceful, relaxing elements to a previously bland bathroom. This can range from updating fixtures, colors, and décor to adding trendy options like digital or walk-in showers. You can also add unique designs, accessories, and light elements to create the perfect space for you.

Another thing to consider when remodeling is whether you want to make your space more accessible. Remodeling with ADA standards can allow you to live in your home longer or add value for future homebuyers if you choose to sell.

Tips for Your Bathroom Remodel

As you begin preparing for your remodel, it’s important to have a plan.

Doing research and considering your goals and budget are great places to start. If you are operating on a smaller budget, consider remodeling in phases. You don’t have to do everything at once.

Explore your options for the features you plan to remodel and update. This might be cabinets, sinks, showers, floors, faucets, mirrors, drywall, or lighting. Additionally, look at pricing for the smaller details, like knobs, light fixtures, paint, and so on. This will help you formulate your budget, identify your timeline, and set the project up for success.

You should also take time to analyze the logistics. What will be moved, replaced, or refreshed? What areas should be remodeled together? What additional materials will be needed? What do you plan to contract versus do on your own? Communicate this with any professionals you hire, we may have insights and thoughts you hadn’t yet considered.

While we appreciate a good DIY project, plumbing is not an area where you want to cut corners. Give us a call today and get started with a professional.

Google Review from Cindy Leeson:
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

“Had some work done by Hanna (replaced toilet, added a laundry sink and replaced kitchen faucet) and they did great work. From the very beginning we were impressed. They came early to the scheduled estimate. They were professional, explained things as he was looking at what we wanted done and answered all of our questions. When it came to the actual work, again it was great. They had an opening, so they came a week early and got the job done that day. They were friendly and did a nice job of cleaning up after they were finished. I plan to use Hanna again for future plumbing needs.”
