Are you ready for a better bathroom? It’s home renovation season, and for Massachusetts families who have been spending a lot of time in the house, the need to upgrade and improve the bathroom is more pressing than ever.
When you’re planning your bathroom renovation, there are four areas to consider: flooring, vanity/cabinetry/storage, plumbing fixtures – this is your toilet, sink, shower, and tub – and lighting. You’ll need to make decisions relevant to each one of these areas whether you’re renovating your existing bathroom, having a bathroom addition built, or are converting a room into a bathroom or powder room.
Have you ever wondered about the difference between a bathroom and a powder room? Powder rooms don’t have a bath or shower. That’s the only difference. You can have a powder room that’s spacious and luxurious: they don’t have to be tiny, minimal spaces.
Of course, part of planning involves figuring out your budget. It may be helpful to know that in Massachusetts, typical major bathroom renovations average between $18,500 and $25,000.
If you want to make changes while containing costs, a smart idea is working with a professional bathroom designer. They will help you achieve the look you want in the most cost-effective manner, while helping you choose flooring, cabinetry, plumbing and lighting that meets your aesthetic goals and lifestyle needs.
Working with a design/build firm for your bathroom renovation further streamlines the process. This is because you’re dealing with a single entity to handle everything, from the initial design sketches right through to the final walk through to ensure you’re thrilled with your new bathroom. If you’ve done any home remodeling before, you know that sometimes problems happen when things get ‘lost in translation’ between the architect and the contractor. Working with a design/build firm eliminates that issue.
