Are you ready to spruce up your tired bathroom? Need some ideas to get your design started? Consider these 10 bathroom remodeling suggestions from Tucker Family Construction.

1. Choose a new, fresh paint color.

One of the cheapest and easiest fixes you can do in your bathroom is to apply a new paint color to your walls or even cabinetry. By choosing a modern color, you can instantly bring your bathroom into the current style.

2. Replace old cabinet hardware.

One tiny fix that can make a big impression is to change old, outdated cabinet hardware for more up-to-date styles that fit your design ideas. When it comes to cabinet hardware, you have many options. Plus, it’s a fix most homeowners can do on their own.

3. Upgrade your flooring.

Is your laminate looking a little worn? Do you have chipped bathroom floor tiles? Then you definitely want to consider changing your flooring during your bathroom remodeling project. And while you’re at it, you may want to ask your contractor about installing a heated flooring element, allowing your bathroom floor to keep your feet toasty during those cold Wisconsin months.

4. Install wainscoting for architectural and design detail.

Better Homes and Gardens recommends installing wainscoting on the lower portion of the wall, and then “paint the upper half of the walls a rich contrasting color.”

5. Trade in your tired tub for a luxurious, claw-foot soaker bath.

If you’re a fan of the bubble bath, then treat yourself to a soaker tub. You’ll feel like you stepped into a fancy hotel or spa every day!

6. Make a splash with decorative tiles.

Customize your bathroom remodeling project to your personal style! You can select decorative bathroom tiles that bring a pop of color or design interest to your bathroom.

7.  Choose a customized shower head.

You can find so many shower head options out there, depending on what type of shower experience you seek. Whether you want to save water or you’d like a dual shower head, your bathroom remodeling contractor can find the right one for you.

8. Create more natural lighting.

Whether you’re trying to apply makeup or relax in your bath, you cannot beat the ambience created by natural light. Discuss with your contractor ways you can increase the natural light, or, if a new window or skylight isn’t an option, other lighting solutions that can meet your needs.

9.  Maximize your storage space.

Nothing is more frustrating in a bathroom than a lack of storage. From medicines to fingernail polish to shaving cream, the bathroom holds many everyday items you need to have at your disposal. Find creative solutions (from baskets to adding built-in cabinetry) to increase bathroom storage.

10. Choose one “splurge item” to include in your bathroom remodel.

If your budget doesn’t allow you to accomplish everything on your bathroom wish list, choose at least one upgrade that is more of a “want” than a “need.” For example, if you love to take long showers at the end of an exhausting day, install a walk-in shower with a premium shower head and floor-to-ceiling tiles.
