Here are some great affordable bathroom remodeling ideas whether you want to gut your bathroom and start over or simply upgrade and enhance small parts of it on a budget!

Let’s start with your large existing Jacuzzi bath tub. These have grown less popular with the aging population as they are difficult to get in and out of and take up a lot of space in the bathroom itself. People are more often than not opting to have the Jacuzzi tub removed and either purchase a soaking tub that is free standing or simply enlarge the shower and not have a tub in the master bathroom at all!

Bathroom flooring is an often debated area. Traditionally, you will find people upgrading their floors to larger tiles with thin grout lines for less maintenance. You can find some wonderful design ideas that people have submitted to an on-line home remodeling gallery called Houzz and then go to a local bathroom remodeling web site for more design ideas like ours, Value Remodelers and Handyman Services. While many people are on a budget, there are very attractive linoleum products and even synthetic hardwoods that are available.

Showers have undergone the most dramatic changes these days. People want more space, more shower heads, more body sprays, benches, lighting, sound, and niches for storage. The old days of the plastic shower floors and gone and people have gone to decorative smaller tiles for the flooring. They are integrating small glass tiles in rows between the larger shower wall tiles. It is now common to find “pony walls” to break up the amount of glass being uses on the enclosures. Finally, we are seeing frameless glass the most popular shower enclosure being selected. To get great visual ideas, go to valueremodelers.com

What goes into a bathroom remodel and what should it cost?

Bathroom remodeling is much hotter than kitchen remodeling and it should be. When a consumer hires a professional remodeler to update their home, on average they have a minimum of 3-4 bathrooms and only one kitchen!

Bathroom remodeling can mean something as simple as updating the flooring, changing out the counter top, or simply all of the bathroom fixtures. Most of the time, we are seeing people replace the commode, the vanity, totally renovate the shower, add new framed mirrors, and add brushed nickel or oil-rubbed bronze fixtures.

The complete shower renovations begins with a new mud pan,  installing tile on the floor and walls, plumbing for multiple shower heads and body sprays, and benches.

What should all of this cost? Obviously it depends on the scope of work and the materials selected. Another factor is whether you are remodeling your master bath or simple powder room. What you can expect in the Charlotte, NC market for a total master bath remodel is to invest between $25,000 – $40,000!
