Plan for a Bath Remodel
We’ll show you everything you need to make it happen
Your bathroom is one of the busiest rooms in the house. Of course, the bathroom has a few main uses. But it’s more than just a place to shower and shave. Your bathroom can also be your own personal oasis – that private place you go to relax at the end of a long day, to soak away life’s stresses or maybe just to get away from the kids. Because bathrooms are such an important part of the home, it’s no surprise a bathroom remodel is a priority for many homeowners. Whether you’re doing a full bath remodel or making minor updates, we can help you make your bath remodel a success. From bathtubs to toilets and bathroom accessories, The Home Depot has everything you need.
Getting Started on Your Bathroom Remodel A bathroom remodel might seem a bit overwhelming, but proper planning can help you get the look and feel you want for your home. You’ve heard the saying: If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail. That’s also true with bath remodels. Our How to Remodel a Bathroom guide offers important bath remodel steps that should begin well before you ever pick up a hammer. In addition to making decisions on design, tile, bathroom paint colors, lighting fixtures and accessories, establishing a budget for both money and time sets the groundwork for a successful remodel. Get a better idea of what you can expect to spend and what factors may affect your cost, in the Bathroom Remodel Cost Guide.
Certain parts of the bathroom remodel may be DIY. If you plan to work on the bathroom remodel steps yourself, be careful to not over-estimate your own skill level and under-estimate the amount of time and money it will take to complete your bath project. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from friends and family or to call in a professional.
Bathroom Remodeling Ideas When it comes to how to plan a bathroom remodel you can do a little or you can do a lot. Remember, even small updates can have an impact. Don’t underestimate the impact of a fresh coat of paint. It’s an easy and affordable way to invigorate your bathroom’s interior design. Instantly add charm and style to your space with a new, updated vanity mirror and vanity. There are a wide range of sizes, finishes and styles of bathroom vanities from which to choose. The bathroom sink itself can even be part of the design, from vessel sinks resting on top of the counter or a free-standing pedestal sink. The possibilities are endless.
Improve the overall look and feel of your bathroom by paying attention to the details. Consider adding in new, energy efficient LED lighting. New light fixtures can be installed quickly to brighten a dim room and add an element of design. Upgrade your bath experience to a spa experience, with an updated shower head and the addition of a bidet. Add in a few accents, like bath rugs, hampers, towels, candles, house plants and other accessories to tie the room together. Don’t forget about small accents and bathroom hardware like towel bars, toilet paper holders and cabinet handles. Check out our Bathroom Remodel Ideas guide for more design inspiration.
If you want to refresh your bathroom from head to toe, consider new flooring, a new backsplash or new wall tiles. Tile on the floors or on the walls can be a beautiful addition to any bathroom. Before you begin your bathroom tile remodel, determine how much tile you need. Don't guesstimate, calculate with our project calculators.
Full bath remodels may include the installation of a new walk-in shower or bathtub. The convenience of a walk-in shower is hard to beat, especially in a small space. Replacing an old tub with a freestanding tub can help bring your bathroom style up to date. If installing a bathtub is too big an undertaking right now, change out your bathroom faucets instead. Even something as simple as a different shower curtain can spruce up a bathroom space. Tackle your bathroom DIY project with help from our Bathroom Ideas and Projects. It’s loaded with do-it-yourself tips on everything from how to install a toilet to how to remove and replace a bathtub and more.
