Renovating a bathroom is no small decision to make. It takes planning to come up with the design that suits your needs - both aestically and financially. Some design features to think about are;
A walk-in Shower - many homeowners shower today and dont require a bath tub.
A shower bench - sometimes its nice to be able to sit in the shower and enjoy the warmth and steam. It can also help if you need to add a level of safety while you shower.
Double Vanity - A great way to allow 2 people get ready for the day at the same time.
Stand Alone Bathtub - A beatiful stand alone bath tub can be a great feature for your msater ensuite. Relax in your spa like ensuite and let the troubles of the day melt away!
Heated Floor - one you experince it, you'll wonder how you ever survived without it! Getting out of the shower or tub and stepping onto a beatifulled warmed floor is heaven!
Mosaic Tiles or tile patterns - adding mosaic tile to your shower/tub walls is a great way to add visual interst to your bathroom.
Planning your renovation requires estimating and budgeting. Bathroom costs vary dramtically based upon design, scope of work, and quality of materials used. Getting 3 quotes is important. the quote should include a detailed list of all the work to be performed. if you arent sure of what some of your design features cost be sure to ask your contractor to itemize the costs for you. Then you can pick the scope of work that matches yoour budget.
Most basic 5x8 bathrooms will start at $10,000. This is for a complete renovation. Larger bathroms or master ensuites that have both a bath tub and a shower with a double vanity will start at $15,000
