A Bathroom Renovation Can Be Life Changing

Renovating the bathroom in your apartment or house isn’t just about increasing the value of your property, it’s about improving your atmosphere, mood and yes! – The quality of your life. With thoughtful consideration about how you actually live in your home, we can help you redesign your bathroom so that one of the most important rooms in your home gives you space, functionality and an uplifting atmosphere.

Bathroom design is often overlooked. Considering that most people are rushing around trying to get ready to start their day, a bathroom that makes life easier instead of more challenging can set the entire tone of your day. A typical person spends a good deal of time grooming with various products for teeth, hair, nails, body and face, so ample bathroom storage, electricity, lighting and bathroom fixtures are important factors. The bathroom is usually the first room you enter in the morning and the last before you go to bed at night. Problems with space and stationary elements can sometimes present challenges for a home remodeling project, but we can typically find a solution to most any problem and design the bathroom around your lifestyle.

Attending to design details means keeping up with evolving home trends each year. We’ll help you consider new and fresh colors, materials, shapes and patterns for durability and functionality as well as style. Whether you’re looking for a Manhattan renovation that’s contemporary, feminine or masculine themed, globally inspired, traditional or casual – with sustainable materials – we can work with you through every step.

Bathroom Renovation 2018 Trends: 8 Topics to Consider

Bathroom Remodeling in New York City

Bathroom Renovating

 

If you are getting ready for a bathroom remodel in your house or New York City apartment, remember that there are many traditional and non-traditional approaches ranging from a full renovation to simply upgrading existing items. These upgrades include changing hardware such as replacing fixtures, or even changing tile, wallpaper and paint. If changing the existing hardware and appliances isn’t enough to breathe new life into your bathroom, a popular option for homeowners is to remodel existing elements. If you are looking for a simple visual improvement and impact, a remodel of the flooring can do the job and change the entire theme. If you are looking for a more functional change, replacing an old toilet, dated hardware and dysfunctional cabinets may be in order. These changes can improved utility and add a lot of serviceable space – a big consideration for apartment dwellers. Above Remodeling has put together 8 topics for your to think about so you to get the most out of your bathroom remodel.

1. Shower & Bathtub

Replace an older bathtub with a new model, or by remove the bathtub all together and opt for a walk in shower. Walk in showers are an excellent way to change the entire look of your bathroom. Bath tubs are a staple for most bathrooms and are usually the centerpiece. Replacing bathtubs entirely for newer and better looking models is generally a good idea but in recent years home owners have started to simply replace old hardware on tubs. Changing knobs and fixtures is a great way to improve the look of any tub. If you are in the market for a new bath, consider models that can be upgraded to include sliding doors or other elements that you may want later. When upgrading your bathroom, homeowners should always make sure that their new bath choices meet their space requirements and will mate with existing plumbing.

2. Counter Tops

New counter tops can drastically change the look of your bathroom since they are usually the first thing people notice when first entering. Impressive counters can draw attention away from some of the less beautiful parts of your bathroom. Replacing an old synthetic plastic counter with stone, or stone veneered, tops will give a more earthy appearance. Replacing the counter with colored tops will allow you to match colors elsewhere in the bathroom.

3. Mirror

Mirrors are one of the most used but yet overlooked items in a bathroom. Upgrading your existing mirror can be an easy change. While the mirror itself can be replaced, simply adding a trim frame around it can be enough to make an old piece look new.

4. Bathroom Lighting

Of all places in any home, bathroom lighting needs to be multi-operational and among the most well-lit considering that the bathroom is where most people start their day. Bright LED day light fixtures flanking a bathroom mirror are ideal for grooming and makeup tasks. Additional lighting where density can be controlled with dimmer switches can create a soft ambience for relaxed bathing.

5. Flooring

Upgrading your flooring is always a great way to change the look and feel of your bathroom. If you are currently using a linoleum floor, consider moving to a tile or hard wood floor. Tile is a great option due to its water resistant nature, and can give a more regal feel to your bathroom. While hard wood flooring is not traditionally considered for this type of renovation, in recent years composite materials that mimic the appearance of wood have become popular options. These composite materials are water resistant, and can give a unique and more natural look to your room.

6. Cabinets

Cabinet upgrades are a great way to re-imagine any bathroom. Most bathroom cabinets are built from ply or particle board and then coated with a wood grain veneer. This veneer is not always water resistant, and condensation buildup can cause the veneer to slowly degrade. A great remedy to avoid this problem is to install well-built models made from a solid wood which will last longer and potentially avoid water damage.

7. Bathroom Tile

Tile backsplashes and walls can add a lot of drama and style to a bathroom, but also will add quite a bit to overall renovation costs. Unique shapes, colors and materials like glass and organic stone can substantially change the mood.

8. Color

If you’re looking to freshen your bathroom with a new paint job, today’s overwhelming amount of color choices can be daunting. Neutral tones with organic undertones, while very popular, can also be the most satisfying not only for the mood but for longevity. A bold accent color can be introduced on one wall that can be easily be “swapped out” for a later refresh.

Modern Designs in Small Spaces: Bathrooms

384129_322390607789322_1260610747_n386628_320914624603587_1476773780_n

 

While there is no formula for renovating and designing small spaces, contractors, interior designers and homeowners alike agree that modern designs work best in small areas. Reliant on clean lines, paired down elements and simplicity, modern designs can make typically small apartment rooms feel much larger. By choosing elements carefully, integrating built-in, carefully hidden storage solutions and working with light and textures, style never needs to be sacrificed to gain more space.

With careful planning and ingenious solutions,
a small bathroom can be designed to
maximize space but not sacrifice comfort and luxury.

While the bathroom is probably the smallest space in any home – aside from closets – a lot of activity goes on there and room for supplies is usually high on a homeowner’s wish list. That said, most people want to make the most out of every square inch of space. With careful planning and ingenious solutions, a small bathroom can be designed to maximize space but not sacrifice comfort and luxury. Modern bathroom designs can create a sophisticated ambience with upscale amenities that includes granite countertops, modular storage, stylish lavatories, vanities and speciality features.

Simple neutral color scheme paired with warm materials, minimal detailing and textures can make a major impact in any bathroom. Today, there is an abundant selection of “green” sustainable bathroom products to choose from. Following are some remodeling aspects that we recommend to maximize bathroom space.

 

Lighting
The choices available for bathroom lighting fixtures seems endless, but recessed lighting can create a soft glow and seemingly help the space to appear bigger.

Mirrors
Wall-mounted, flat mirrors can reflect room lighting – a detail particularly useful in bathrooms without a window.

Modern Fixtures
The sleek modern designs of many modern fixtures can open up the space and compliment the overall atmosphere. Bronze and polished chrome finishes are the most desired today.

Sinks
Typical sink cabinets, while seemingly functional for storage can in reality, chip away at bathroom space. Pedistal sinks, counter-top vessel sinks and artisan sinks can, in fact, make the bathroom appear bigger.

Storage Space
When space is at a premium, and it usually is in New York City apartments, reply on using vertical space. Shelving positioned above doorways and cabinetry that extends from floor to ceiling can claim a surprising amount of storage space.

Bathtubs & Showers
While showers curtains can make a bathroom appear to be smaller by separating the space, glass enclosures can create the opposite effects and seemingly double to room size. If privacy is an issue, patterns and etchings can still be used and not defeat the purpose.

Use of Color
Monochromatic, soft, neutral color schemes can create the illusion of more space. Repeating wall color on the ceiling can give the illusion of height.

Flooring
Large floor tiles and subtle patterns will create less of a visual break that busy patterns and small tiles. Herringbone patterns in wood or bamboo flooring can bring just the right amount of warmth for those who feel modern designs can be cold.
