Some home renovations need nothing more than a fresh coat of paint and some new fixtures to make an impact, but there are times when a complete remodel is required. Replacing old, worn out cabinets and vanities with beautiful top quality bathroom cabinets and solid maple bathroom vanities is a great place to start. Upgrade chipped and faded bathroom tiles with brand new flooring, add some modern lighting, put on that fresh coat of paint, and replace fixtures to coordinate with your new look, and you’ve got a brand new bathroom before you know it.
Major replacements and upgrades of items such as toilets, showers, and tubs, are not always necessary. In most cases, these items can be cleaned, detailed and new fixtures can be added to increase their life and improve their looks. Whether you make these major replacements or not, you can get all of your other materials, including beautiful New Bedford bathroom vanities, at the Cabinet Outlet in Southeastern Massachusetts. Come see our wide range of options at affordable prices on Grand Army of the Republic Highway in Swansea, MA.
Tip #1 – Create a Budget
Before you go shopping for materials, take the time to create a budget. Know how much you have to spend, including savings, cash on hand, credit cards, and any home loans or equity lines of credit that are available. Depending on how much you want to upgrade and replace, your bathroom remodel could range anywhere between $5,000 and upwards of $25,000 to get the job done. You can save big on solid maple bathroom vanities and cabinets at the Cabinet Factory Outlet. The savings can then be applied to other features that you want to include in your project. Include installation and service costs in your budget, as many of the elements commonly replaced in bathrooms can require professional assistance.
Tip #2 – Improve Function
When it comes time to start making plans for your bathroom remodeling project, consider elements that will improve function. Most people just think about the colors used in the top quality bathroom cabinets, flooring, countertops, and fixtures, but your goal should also include improvements to the way that you use the space. Add a private area for the toilet, either behind a wall, a piece of furniture or create a room within a room type feature. Modernized fixtures, better lighting, more storage – these are all ways to improve function.
BONUS TIP – Think about how you will clean the space, making sure to pick materials at our cabinet outlet in Southeastern Massachusetts that will be easy to keep clean and protect throughout the years. Many modern surfaces are porous and difficult to truly sanitize. That can be a big problem for many homeowners once they start to use and clean the new bathroom for the first time.
Tip #3 – Choose One Amazing Feature
Not too long ago, whirlpool and soaking tubs were all the rage. Today, people are more into steam showers, multi-head showers, body spray features and even waterfall showers. Go over your options and choose one amazing feature that will have you looking forward to using your new bathroom the moment that the work is done. Your big gain might be something else, such as improved storage in New Bedford bathroom vanities or cabinets. Or maybe you might have been frustrated with poor lighting for putting on make-up. You can easily add an area with dimmer lighting that will provide you with the function you need built-in to your new bathroom.
Tip #4 – Energy Efficiency
While you are upgrading your bathroom with materials from the cabinet outlet in Southeastern Massachusetts, you might as well upgrade with energy efficiency in mind. Brand new LED lighting can be a great selling point, as well as Energy Star rated vents and fixtures, that will not only help you to reduce energy and water consumption but will also increase the value of your home. Should you put it on the market one day in the future, not only will prospective buyers be impressed by your new solid maple bathroom vanities and top quality bathroom cabinets, but also your energy efficient toilet, shower, lighting, and ventilation system.
