Bathroom Remodel in Greensboro for Any Budget

The average American spends 1.5 years of their lifespan in the bathroom. That is entirely too long to spend in a room you don’t like. Maybe your bathroom is not aesthetically pleasing to you or maybe it feels too small and crowded. Maybe some parts aren’t even functioning properly. Whatever the problems are with your bathroom, Distinctive Designs can fix them and turn it into the bathroom of your dreams.

Small Improvements Go a Long Way

You may find that your bathroom functions quite well, but you don’t care for the look. Maybe you moved into a home and don’t share the previous owner’s tastes. Perhaps you haven’t made any changes to your bathroom in years and it looks outdated. Even on a low budget you can give your bathroom a facelift. Consider replacing the cabinetry, sink, and countertops. You can even replace just the countertops to make a big difference in the overall appearance and add visual interest to your bathroom. Consider new flooring as well to compliment the countertops. New paint and a new color pallet will also make an old bathroom look fresh and new.

Another way to improve the look of your bathroom is to improve the lighting. The goal is to produce different layers of illumination in the room. A ceiling fixture is suitable for overall lighting, but it may cast shadows on your face. Adding sconces or other vertical lighting fixtures around the vanity area will add the soft illumination you need and help create a soft ambiance to your bathroom. Better lighting can improve the look and function of the bathroom. Consider installing both high and low lighting. Sometimes you may need bright light at the sink, but you may want to dim the lights for a relaxing bath or shower.

Bigger Improvements

Do you feel your bathroom is too small? Is the layout less than efficient? These are problems that can be solved with a bit more work and a higher budget. In some cases, bathrooms can be expanded into other rooms or closets to create more actual square footage. If there is no additional space for expansion, rearranging the layout of the room can maximize space and create a better overall flow in the room.

Depending on how much you rearrange, it may require changes in the actual plumbing. If you’re moving the sink, tub, or toilet, there will be a bit of plumbing to reroute, but it is certainly doable. Simply switching from a tub with shower to a shower stall can save a lot of space in the room and may not require any rerouting of pipes. A shower with glass doors instead of a shower curtain can make the room look bigger.

New bathroom cabinetry can improve the look and create more space as well. Distinctive Designs offers custom and semi-custom bathroom cabinetry. If you need more storage space, it can be added without taking up any additional floor space. The layout of the room makes all the difference.

Bathroom Improvements Are Smart Investments

Any improvements made to the bathrooms in your home will add value to your home. With some types of home improvements, you pay more up front than you get back in the value of your home. With bathroom improvements, you stand to get back as much as you put into it, if not more when it comes to the resale value of your home.
