There’s no time like the present to tackle that bathroom remodel you’ve been wanting to do seemingly forever in your Waterford, MI home. Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can partner with you to make sure your project is done on time and one budget.
Determining the scope of the project
The very first step should be a decision about what you wish to accomplish. Is your bathroom so dated and ugly you just can’t stand it? Then the only answer may be a total change in home decor. This likely means a down to the wall studs bathroom remodel. If you don’t have the budget for a project this size, you don’t have to give up. There are other options to consider.
- Change accessories: Consider just fixtures to give the room a new look. New faucets and lighting sconces can make a huge difference in home decor without lengthy and expensive construction.
- Paint the tile: This could be an option if you have a really dated color scheme. It’s not as dramatic as replacing bathroom tile, but it’s a cost-effective option worth considering. Plan on first applying an oil-based primer. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice from professional painters before tackling the job yourself.
- Let your hair down: Don’t be afraid to be daring. Add some fun wallpaper, a new ceiling light fixture, or paint the doors of the vanity.
- Work with what you have: Don’t be afraid to take advantage of the current color scheme even if it feels dated. Consider bold color patterns in window treatments and shower curtains. The boldness takes attention away from the dated color scheme.
We don’t want to discourage you from a complete bathroom remodel. If that’s what you want and the project fits into your budget, then you should go for it.
