While kitchens may be the most popular room in the home to remodel these days, bathrooms typically run a close second, and with good reason. Bathrooms are in need of being extremely functional, but the aesthetic value of a bathroom has also become an important factor of bathroom remodeling in Carlsbad today.
The Standard Update
The first approach to bathroom renovations is leaving the layout of the bathroom intact and addressing the updating and upgrading of bathroom features. These renovation projects can still be quite significant, but they are much less complicated than the other alternative.
The Gut Job
The other alternative is gutting the bathroom and reworking the layout. Many times, older homes have smaller bathrooms that don’t function for larger families. Removing the bathroom and expanding it is an excellent way to make the bathroom look good and work better. Moving or the addition of plumbing lines, the new electrical features, bathroom fixtures and furniture that will need to be added will need to be handled by a pro. In addition, with these new features, this particular bathroom remodeling in Carlsbad can be quite extensive, lengthy and expensive.
The Customers Patience Level
To determine which type of remodeling approach is going to be right for a homeowner, two things will need to be taken into account. The first is the homeowner’s patience for having to go through an extensive renovation. If the home has multiple bathrooms, this may not be as significant of an issue as it is if a home only has one bathroom, which is common with older homes. Only having one bathroom means alternative bathroom facilities will need to be created, sometimes for an extended period of time while the remodeling project is being carried out.
The other consideration is budget. Gutting out and reworking a bathroom is expensive and a homeowner has to determine if this type of remodeling project will fall within their budget. If it doesn’t, a new approach will have to be taken.
