5 Smart Tips For Your CT Bathroom Remodel

By fiderioandsons Mar 20, 2013

It’s spring time, which means time to revamp and liven up your home! One of the best ways to add great curb appeal to your house is with a bathroom remodel. Whether you are trying to update your tired bathroom or do an entire remodel, CT bathroom contractors Fiderio & Sons is here to offer smart tips for your next bathroom project.

1) Be Prepared

Make sure that everything on your bathroom remodel list is pre-ordered weeks before the big project. It can take a long time for large objects, like bath tubs and sinks, to arrive at the construction zone. There are so many bits and pieces involved in a bathroom remodel that selecting products can be overwhelming. Our best recommendation is to be patient and let your contractor deal with ordering all of the fixtures, tiles, cabinets and more.

2) Use Accent Tiles

We love accent tires because they add a certain pizzazz to any style bathroom. The great thing about accent tiles is that you only need to buy a few to make a statement in your bathroom. Using the special tiles sporadically or as a fun border will give your bathroom character and save you some money!

3) Update Your Lighting

Lighting can make a huge difference in your bathroom remodel. Think of lighting early so that you can plan all of the cables and wiring. Designers use dimmers, chandeliers, wall sconces and recessed lighting to add low lights and high lights into the bathroom. Don’t forget to place the lighting in the right place, including over the tub area and along the mirrors. Plus, ambient lighting works best to create a soft and warm glow in the bathroom.

4) Include Storage

Nothing is worse than having a beautiful remodel and realizing that you have nowhere to hide all of you bathroom products! You will definitely want in-shower storage for all of your shower amenities. We recommend including ceramic tile shelving that is installed directly into the shower. Or, if your bathroom is getting a complete facelift, then ask your contractor to include shelving built into the wall. Recessed shelving doesn’t take up any extra space and fits great with any beautiful bathroom remodel.

5) Treat Yourself

Don’t forget, the bathroom is a place to relax and rejuvenate. Even though the bathroom is usually the smallest room in the house,  you still want it to be a place that you love. We recommend splurging on one feature that you love and that will truly define the space. Paying a little extra for that one piece will make your bathroom stand out to guests and make you smile every time you see it!

CountertopsFor your bathroom remodel you can choose a beautiful countertop for less than you would expect. Because the bathroom is generally the smallest room in the house, you don’t have to pay for large surface countertops. A single-sink countertop won’t require a lot of granite or marble, so you can splurge on your bathroom without feeling guilty.
