bathroom remodeling fort collins

Are you a homeowner thinking about a bathroom remodel in Fort Collins or Northern Colorado? A bathroom remodel is the most commonly renovated room in the home, and for good reason. It comes with a number of personal comfort benefits, and it’s an investment that pays. We’re going to look at some of biggest payoffs when choosing a bathroom remodel for your Fort Collins home.

 

Great Bathrooms Sell Homes

 

Whether you’re buying or selling the bathroom is often a deal maker or breaker. The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in a home, putting it on the top of a home buyer’s list for rooms to look at. Home shoppers check the sink, shower, and toilet. They look at cabinet space, mirrors, lighting, and overall space. Updating your fixtures and adding some natural lighting can be enough “Wow” factor to get your bathroom transformed into a home closing asset.

 

Do it For You

 

If you’re not planning to sell your home anytime soon, a bathroom remodel can still add a lot of value to your life. Your bathroom should be as comfortable as your master bedroom. It’s the room where you go to prepare for the day and go to rejuvenate at the end of a long day. If it’s your master bedroom bath you can make it as personal and creative as you like – not many people will be using it.

 

Increase Your Home Value

 

Very few home renovations will recoup a 100% return; however, bathroom remodels do recoup the highest percentage among remodels. You always want to maximize your return on investment, and no home renovation, aside from the kitchen, comes close to achieving a high return like the bathroom.

 

Decrease Clutter

 

When you update your bathroom you get more space. Adding extra cabinets and storage areas can help declutter other areas in your home. Some people even put their washer and dryer in a large bathroom. You can add a closet to store towels, linens and other toiletries that might have otherwise been stored away in inconvenient places.

 

Make Your Home Energy Efficient

 

The Environmental Protection Agency estimated that if 1% of homeowners upgraded their bathrooms with energy efficient fixtures, over 70 billion gallons of water and $1.5 Billion worth of energy costs would be saved in a one-year time span. If you’re thinking about going green or just wanting to save some green paper, updating your bathroom with energy efficient faucets, showerheads, or lighting is a great start.

1. Marble Everything

From walls to sinks to accent fixtures, marble is all the rage these days. This is great in accent pieces or complete walls.

The great thing about marble is the longevity of the material. Marble is easy to clean and can last for years. If you’re going to use marble in your bathroom remodel, it would be best to use solid colors throughout the rest of the design process.

2. Let the Tub Be Free

Freestanding tubs have a tendency to draw all attention. If you look on Pinterest at ‘bathrooms’, almost all pictures will feature a stand-alone tub.

Not only do these tubs offer the idea of complete relaxation, but placed in front of a statement wall are aesthetically pleasing to your eye and your guest’s eyes.

3. Create With Color

In the past, it has been completely normal and expected to design your bathroom with neutrals and earth tone colors.

The forefront of bathroom design trends is all about incorporating deep, rich hues of color. Think about accent fixtures, backsplashes or vanities and give them a pop of color. The color blue is especially trending and something to consider when remodeling your bathroom.

4. Say Goodbye to Subway Tile

Subway tile had its time in the sun but that era is over! When you’re deciding to add tile to your bathroom, go for texture and pattern rather than solid colors.

5. Industrial Inspiration

When you think about including an industrial theme into your bathroom, think minimalistic. The industrial trend is composed of exposed brick, exposed beams and raw materials.

The more natural the better. The industrial theme is a satisfying balance of different and varying materials that compliment each other. Think concrete, wood, brass, exposed pipes and brick.

6. The Metal Must-Have

Your shower door carries a lot of weight in the bathroom. It is typically the first thing you lay eyes on when walking into your bathroom. Why not make it stand out and speak for itself?

The rise of a metal shower door is on the rise in 2018. This window-esque look also works really well while incorporating an industrial theme into your bathroom. The look of metal against a lighter shower tile is dramatic and defined, giving your bathroom the illusion of controlled chaos.

7. Mixing materials

Mixing several different materials plays an effective role in designing a bathroom. The mixing of materials also gives you a lot of freedom to choose and design to your true liking.

With light fixtures, cabinets, storage, showers and tubs and all other things incorporated in a bathroom, you have endless options of things to use different materials on.

Bathroom Design Trends to Die For

There you have it! Just a few of the top trends you’ll be seeing in the 2018 bathroom remodel world.

So where do you start? Take time to do research on all different trends to see what best suits you and your personality. The bathroom is supposed to be a place of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Whatever design makes you feel relaxed is the design you should use in your bathroom. So find out what you like and get to it!

If you need a little help along the way, we’re only a call away.

Whether we realize it or not, our bathrooms are very important places. Just 30 years ago, it was fairly common to have a separate space for dressing and getting ready to go out. However, the idea of a “dressing room” in our homes went the way of the Dodo in the 70′s. Nowadays, our bathrooms are the primary area for preparing for the day, or night. Consequently, good bathroom remodeling design is now far more important than it used to be.

While remodeling your entire home may not be necessary, changing the look of your bathroom can have a profound effect on the overall feel of the house. To get the most out of a bath remodel in Fort Collins, think about how you want the bathroom to feel. If you want it to be a functional, modern space, look for general contractors in Fort Collins who specialize in that type of work. Or maybe you want to make your bathroom a softer, more calming space. Look for examples of that type of work when viewing potential contractor’s portfolios. Not to toot our own horn, but bathrooms tend to be one of our specialties. You can check out our portfolio by clicking here. Whatever design path you choose, your bathroom redesign could make that space your favorite room in the house.
