Bathroom Makeover: A Step-by-Step Guide

Bathroom Makeover: A Step-by-Step Guide

Nowadays, everyone is spending more and more time at home, making the demand for a relaxing place to wind down with a bath or freshen up in front of the mirror greater than ever before.

But let’s say you don’t have a washroom worthy of meditation and you want to build one.

 The million dollar question is: where do you even start? With so much involved in a bathroom remodeling project, the answer is not always obvious. That’s why Linea Studio created this guide, which if coupled with the support of Linea’s expert team, will make your dream bathroom a reality in no time. 

Start With The Right Questions

Any good life coach will tell you that self-improvement begins by knowing what to ask yourself. In the case of improving your bathroom, this rule is equally true. You need a clear picture in your mind of what you hope for. Asking the right questions will help to clarify a vision that can be a beacon throughout the renovation process. It may seem more philosophical than practical to start here, but ultimately your sense of pragmatics are informed by your needs, wants and desires, which are best illuminated through good self-interrogation. You might consider some of the following questions:

  • Who will be using the bathroom?
  • How many people will be using the bathroom
  • Are you looking to dramatically shift its look and feel or just touch up the style it already has? 
  • Would you like to create a more spa-like experience or increase efficiency for your morning routine?
  • Do you prefer modern, traditional, or a novel fusion of the two?
  • Are you looking to outfit it to better handle Miami weather?
  • Are you in need of additional storage or square footage?  

 

These kinds of questions will help to ground your vision and provide you an idea of what makes the most sense, given constraints of timeline, spatial orientation, and of course, finances.

Outline a Budget

Once you’ve curated a coherent design vision, the next step is to square that vision with budgetary restrictions. According to studies done by the National Kitchen and Bath Association, you can expect to pay roughly 5-10% of your home’s actual value for a full and functional bathroom remodel. Regardless of what that percentage is in figures, this phase is a good time to set your priorities. 

If you know you need a new bath, new tiling, or a new vanity, set those at the top of your list and begin to work your way down. By the time you reach the bottom, you’ll have a good sense of what’s purely functional, what’s purely aesthetic, and what toes the line between the two.
