So you’ve decided to update your bathroom, now what? Where do you start and how do you start without redoing the entire room? Well, start with the basics—are there any functional issues in your bathroom? Address those first. Functional issues are anything from leaky faucets to tile cracks or grout problems. Fix all those little annoying things you’ve always hated about the space before you start the update. If you don’t do those things first, you’ll feel like you’ve wasted your time when your bathroom update is gorgeous but the toilet still doesn’t flush properly.


Now that the functional problems are solved you can start the update! Remember that we’re just UPDATING not remodeling so consider things like fixtures and paint. A little overhaul in the room will go a long way! Try painting the vanity instead of getting a whole new one. Then get some new fixtures to compliment the paint color. You could update wall color to compliment the new vanity and fixtures as well.


If you’re still not satisfied, it might just be time to contact the professionals for some more ideas. Here are a few things to consider when deciding whether or not to remodel:


Is your bathroom comfortable? The layout should be comfortable and practical. If the layout is wrong there’s not a whole lot you can update to fix the problem. It might need a full remodel. 


Is the style outdated? Sometimes it’s just time to switch it up. As trends fade in and out, the style of your bathroom is one of the quickest ways to determine whether you need to remodel.


Do you have enough storage? Rearranging and remodeling the bathroom can do more than just give the space an aesthetic facelift—you can also update the functionality!


Are you ready to sell? Remodeling your bathroom is a great way to entice buyers and get the quickest return on your investment!
