Do: Start with a Design Plan

Have you seen any inspiring bathroom design that you’d like to mimic? Start from there. It’s really important to get a proper understanding of what you want the final product to look like. There are websites that offer free design ideas for modern bathrooms.

If you weren’t sure of your personal style, online research would be a good place to start. Remember you don’t have to copy one type of design exactly the way it is. Pick something you like and then select the elements that are most appealing to you. You can create a mood board that contains every style you’d like to incorporate in your new bathroom and then work with an expert to put it all together.

Don’t: Under Budget

It’s quite important to know how much you can spend on your new bathroom remodel. Having a realistic budget from the beginning will ensure the project doesn’t come to a stop because of financial hurdles. Look at your finances then work with an expert to advise on the kind of renovation that will be most feasible for you.

While you may not be able to pull off a bathroom remodel exactly the way you wanted, a contractor can advise on what to skimp on so you spend the budget wisely on things that matter most. Also, you need to speak to different contractors and compare their quotes before you decide whom to hire. If your budget is really tight, there are some aspects of the project that you can consider doing yourself to save on labour costs. Shopping around the stores in your community for cheaper materials can also help you to cut back on costs further.

Do: Opt for Neutral Elements

One mistake that many people make when remodeling the bathroom is choosing high-end elements with dramatic finishes only to regret later. Some design features run out of style very quickly. It’s best to choose neutral finishes for those high-end elements in your bathroom like the tile flowing and shower design. Bathroom design trends come and go so it’s important to choose something that doesn’t need to be altered after a few hours especially if you’ll be spending so much money having it installed in the first place.

Incorporating neutral elements in your bathroom doesn’t have to mean that your overall design will be boring. There are ways to bring out your personality into the space without having to change critical fixtures or going for unusual finishes on high-end elements. You can play around with accessories that are easier to replace over time. Adding a visually striking element like bold paint, a mirror or floor coverings would be a better approach to bring out your personality.

Don’t: Forget About the Bathroom Vanity

The bathroom vanity is one key feature that you can use to make a big statement. This is one element everyone will notice immediately they walk into your bathroom. There are lots of options to choose from when it comes to vanity designs. From vanities that come with double sinks, large mirrors and lots of storage, you’ll need to make a good decision based on the space available as well as your budget. A good vanity should add visual interest to the space. Go for neutral designs that you can quickly change up whenever you feel to freshen up the look of the bathroom.

Bathroom renovations can be a daunting experience but there’s nothing more satisfying to know that you did your best before and during the process. To avoid the remodel from getting too pricey, work with an experienced contractor who understands how to keep costs low. Your remodel can be a success without the hassles of unexpected expenses or design elements that run out of style quickly. You just need to do proper planning before the job begins.

Do: Invest in a Good Shower

One popular bathroom feature that today’s homebuyers are keen on is the shower. Investing in a luxurious shower is going to be a worthwhile endeavor in your next renovation. A good shower can transform the bathing experience in ways you never imagined possible. Think of multiple showerheads, heated flows, and more features. Bathtubs aren’t used as often as showers because of all the effort it takes to clean. You may want to skip this expense and go for a good shower instead. It all depends on what your personal preference is.

Don’t: Skip Storage

Storage is key in the bathroom. Whether you’re looking to store some extra toiletries or guest towels, this storage will come in handy when you need to have these items on hand. If you have adequate space in your bathroom, consider investing in proper in-built shelving or an extra closet. If your space is smaller, there are so many other storage alternatives to consider. Just make sure storage is not an afterthought in your remodeling project. Think it through early in the process because it’s going to be worth the effort and expense.


What Our Clients Are Saying

Highly Recommended!

We would give MKB a first class rating. From initial pricing and proposal thru to all of the finishing touches, MKB was professional and did everything with an impeccable attention to detail. Having Domenic in charge made the entire process seamless, even though our home was gutted and rebuilt during COVID. Domenic’s ideas and suggestions gave our entire kitchen a uniqueness that is not generally found in many remodels. At the same time, we never felt we were being “upsold”. When we made a major change, they were fair with pricing. We would not hesitate for a moment if we had to do it all over again.

Very Professional

Thank you to the whole team at Manotick Kitchen and Bath! Mike and Bailey helped put my vision into a plan for a total bathroom gut and makeover and a complete kitchen facelift. Dom’s crew expertly executed the renos, they were professional, pleasant, creative and tidy. Thank you also to Paul for the extra hands (over the weekend!!) and for correcting a “fix”, one year later. This is exactly the type of excellent service you can expect and receive from this team. Absolutely no regrets!

If there are only small changes being made such as the installation of new fixtures, give the fixture a few hundred dollars (such as around $300 for a toilet) and then add the number of hours needed multiplied by the going rate (between $50-$75 per hour) to get an estimate.
