Four Options for Remodeling Your Bathroom

Four Options for Remodeling Your Bathroom

The bathroom is a very important room in your home. Making it luxurious and comfortable is something you should always do. Not only does it allow you to literally wash the stresses of the day away, it also adds tremendous value to your home. However, when you start looking for the best bathroom remodeling Scottsdale has to offer, you will quickly find that there are so many options that you can choose from. Let’s take a look at four popular options.

  1. Surface Level Remodeling Only

This is generally the cheapest form of remodeling and one that you can do yourself in the main as well. All you will really do here is replace the parts that are starting to look shabby, and not in the chic type of way. Essentially, you could change just your taps, knobs and faucets, or go slightly further and put a new shower stall, sink or toilet in place.


  1. Changing the Layout

Sometimes, all that is needed is a bit of a layout change. With a bathroom, that is a little bit more complicated than just rearranging a few cupboards, mainly because of the plumbing. However, this doesn’t mean it isn’t possible. Make sure you get a good plumber on board and try to move your bath where the toilet is, the sink where your bath is and the toilet where your sink is, for instance. If you then also change a few of your cupboards, rearrange your decoration items and more, you will have a completely new bathroom without having to purchase anything new.


  1. Bigger Is Better

Sometimes, you just really want something completely different. If this is the case, why not go bigger and better? This isn’t possible for everybody, as most of us are quite limited on space. However, if you have a bedroom spare, for instance, or there is a particularly large room that could work just as well if it was slightly smaller, you could consider extending your bathroom. Once you have all that extra space, however, you will need to fill it as well. So you could consider installing a two person’s corner Jacuzzi, a free standing bath on a platform, a sunken bath or even a sauna room, for instance. Going bigger only means going better if it’s done properly, however, and since this may involve structural work, you will need to make sure that you hire some really good professionals to get the job done.

  1. Overhaul the Lot

Finally, you could just gut it and start again. Take everything in your bathroom out, from the flooring and wall tiles to your sink, shower and toilet and simply start over with a blank canvas. This is generally the most expensive option of all, but it does give you the greatest amount of freedom as well. Not just that, while this is a very expensive option, it also adds a lot of value to your home, if done properly. Indeed, if you do some of the jobs yourself, such as the flooring and tiling, you could even see a 100% return on investment.

    I would love to do my bathroom but am still trying to save the funds to do it, but I really enjoyed your post

  2. Elizabeth H. says:

    One of our bathrooms is in bad need of being remodeled! Just don’t have the money to do it with!

  3. Our bathroom is very small. It wouldn’t make sense to redo it. Where it’s situated if we gutted it and made it larger we’d cut into a bedroom.


    I really need to re do my bathroom!

  5. I would so love to have a bigger bathroom. We just don’t have the room to do anything spectacular like making it bigger.

  6. Tamra Phelps says:

    I would love to redo my bathroom to be more useful for a disabled person. A walk-in tub you can sit down in would be great!

  7. patrick jones says:

    the main one here, we have 3, one in the still has pink tile on the walls yes from back when…and it’s kinda not laid out real great, i think too small as well…plus we have a door that goes up to an attic right there near a toilet that you can’t open fully… in the basement, the shower is real small one you can almost turn around in a circle…

  8. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    We have three bathrooms that need to be upgraded and remodeled a bit. We need new cabinets, counter tops and tile. I really appreciated this article at this time in my life. Thank you so much for sharing

  9. Loved reading your post and really like the blue and green bathroom. Ours is an odd shape and only have a shower stall but would love to expand and put in a tub.

  10. If I could change anything about this house, well, no I’d change a lot of things. But, the bathroom would be much larger. We bought an older home and our bath is about the size of a large walk in closet.

    We have a small bathroom. We need our bathroom remodeled

  12. Karen Beckett says:

    My bathroom is small, so there isn’t a whole lot I can do with it on the cheap side. However, it definately needs re-doing. Thanks for some ideas!

  13. For me, I’d love a large bath with a heated towel rack .A large tub would be nice too.

  14. The bathroom and kitchen are always nice to redo. The only problem is going with the newest trends. I like to keep colors neutral. Ideals change and if you add the colors popular now, when selling may be another persons headache.

  15. vickie couturier says:

    good ideal,we will be doing some remodeling soon

  16. Yes, I would redo that bathroom. The colors are really dated. I like neutral colors. If you want a splash of color, paint. That can be changed easily.

  17. Redoing any room can be expensive. It helps when your husband can do the work himself.

  18. Lori Pouncey says:

    The bathroom is a very important room in our house as well. We remodeled ours about 8 years ago and it was a huge chore lol much more than we imagined lol It took a lot out of us physically but more so mentally! Thanks for sharing your experience!

  19. I think unless you have a home built, the kitchen and bathroom are the two rooms that people would most like to renovate.

  20. After the kitchen, the bathroom is the room I’d most like to redo. We bought an older home that was renovated and the people that had it before us were cheap. They just wanted a quick sale.

  21. Lynda Del says:

    I am really looking to makeover my small bathroom into a mini oasis.

  22. Karen Beckett says:

    We definately have to get started on our bathroom soon.

  23. When you own a home there is so much daily maintenance that needs to be done. Redoing a room would be nice. That’s a big step, not only for you, but the next owner. It takes quite a bit of planning.

  24. Tramond Roper says:

    Thanks. I’m planning on get some work done soon. Great ideas.

  25. Betsy Barnes says:
