When it comes to remodelling your bathroom finding inspiration is easy on renovations plus, however after seeing the bathroom of our dreams, many of us ask the big question, how much will that cost?
In today’s post, we will be exploring precisely that question and some bathroom options to consider. Locally in the Naples area more and more people are looking to refresh their bathrooms, in short, the answer is there isn’t a one-hat fits all solution. There are several factors entailed with accurately pricing up a bathroom makeover.
Food for thought
Before we look at the numbers, why not consider these excellent bathroom ideas to create a stylistic refresh?
We are seeing a trend in the Naples area of more and more home enthusiasts creating a walk-in closet. While this might not be your first priority for a bathroom remodel, it’s a rapidly become a favoured choice for those who enjoy its easy access and practicality. A small fitted closet can store all your trinkets, not to mention fresh towels and spare toiletries.
Dividing areas and partitions
For bathrooms with plenty of space, divided areas are a great idea. For example, a separate closed toilet with a lockable door is ideal for larger families or for adding extra privacy. It’s a fabulous way of adding extra space and depth to any bathroom, not to mention more than one person can utilize the bathroom at once.
Sink and surrounds
If you can part with the countertop space surrounding a standard sink, why not consider a vessel sink? These perch nicely on top of your counter and instantly add an aesthetically pleasing stylish feel and are a quite the centre point in remodelled bathrooms.
For those that love to soak and while away a tough day, a luxury tub is an excellent edition. Depending on your style, you could add a freestanding bath with ornate legs, or a jet spa corner tub. Either option makes for an elegant bathroom addition.
For areas with a larger footprint, why not consider a sperate tub and a walk-in shower. The surrounding walls can be developed to create a focal point with patterned mosaics, or a sleek, smooth marble finish. Both are popular trends we have noted in the Naples area.
