Before and after bathroom


There are many reasons why people to renovate their bathroom; people renovate to improve the overall appearance, and function to any space and these renovations add value to the house before they sell it. If you are able to effectively renovate your bathroom, you will be amazed how this little improvement can enormously increase the value of the house to possible buyers. Of course, then you can sell the house easily and for the best price. Bathrooms are one of the most important functions that buyers will pay attention to, followed by kitchen and bedroom.

  • Choose elegant fixtures.
    A pedestal sink with graceful lines is more attractive than a blocky cabinet vanity. A classic claw-foot tub is like bathroom sculpture. Even enclosed in a deck, the simple lines of the lip have an inherent beauty that surpasses most acrylic versions. Be careful of your design choices: think about the buyers - their choices are what you should be shopping for.
  • Sit in a bathtub before buying it.
    Bigger isn't always better. A 60-inch tub is fine for most people. It offers enough room to stretch out and provides a secure foothold, so you don't float into oblivion when the tub is full. Assess the angled back and lip for comfort and neck support –- a tub for two people slants at either end and has taps in the middle. If you only have enough space for a small tub, consider buying an extra-deep one.
  • Select durable flooring.
    Ceramic, marble and stone tiles are all excellent durable and water-resistant choices for a bathroom. Subfloor heating coils will make these hard surfaces warm. Well-sealed hardwood floors offer natural warmth and act as a foil for the other hard, cold surfaces in a bathroom. If budget is a consideration (and it always should be when selling your home) consider other floor surfaces like a good-quality laminate or vinyl flooring.
  • Hang a stylish mirror.
    One beautifully framed mirror over a sink is more attractive than many surfaces covered with mirrors. Supplement it with a wall-mounted adjustable makeup mirror, and consider installing a lighted, mirrored shaving niche in your shower stall.
  • Use found space.
    Take advantage of space between wall studs by recessing a tall storage cabinet into the wall to maximize vertical storage while saving floor space. The cabinet should have an interior depth of at least three inches and a door flush with the wall.
  • Build a shower area.
    Consider building an open-concept shower area that doesn't need a curtain or door and is less confining than a standard shower stall. In addition to well-designed drainage, a ceiling-mounted rain shower head and/or a high wall-mounted shower head that splashes less water will keep the area outside the shower drier.
  • Design lighting that works.
    Good lighting is imperative. Combine halogen pot lights with wall sconces beside or over the mirror for lighting with no shadows. Always install dimmers.
  • Buy a quality toilet.
    When buying a toilet, it's not necessary for you to spend big bucks, but you don't want to scrimp too much, either. You can get a good-quality one-piece toilet for about $400. Models with elongated bowls and seats are usually most comfortable.
  • Incorporate luxury into your room.
    If you're fortunate enough to have lots of space to work with, indulge yourself with an expanded spa-like bathroom that includes a dressing room –- a haven for privacy and relaxation. Outfit it with a television, fireplace, exercise equipment, makeup vanity and even a large comfortable occasional chair upholstered in thick white terry-cloth.

In this example, the focal point of the room is the beautiful stained glass windows which were incorporated into a single frame. The rest of the room is completely transformed into a spa-like retreat with this elegant tub.

Sometimes all that is needed is a sliding glass door, some tiles and a paint job to completely transform an ugly bathroom into a thing of beauty. It's not how much you spend on a room that's important, but how you spend on the room.

Part 1 of 2 for this bathroom transformation:
Here a bathroom was extended by almost 50% to go from a bathtub, vanity/sink and toilet, to a shower wet zone, free standing tub, and beautiful granite topped vanity and elegant sink. Lots of tiling and attention to detail turned this so-so bathroom into a luxury retreat.
In this picture, you see the wet zone with glass wall, as well as the granite topped vanity.

Part 2 of the bathroom transformation.
Here you see the other side of the vanity and the free standing tub. The black tiles used on the floors were used in the lower portion of the walls, with the shower wet/zone tiles capping them off.

This is the wall that was pushed back to create an additional 40% room, and more than double the floor space for walking.
