a newly remodeled bathroom with bright lights and oak cabinetsAny designer or architect will tell you that the space you occupy has a great impact on your daily life. A room you love or a house that speaks to you is likely to improve your mood, state of mind, and even your productivity. Being a custom home builder, we know all about how a particular design speaks to the individual.  And part of the fun of being a homeowner is the ability to alter the space you live in as your lifestyle, tastes, or family changes.

A bathroom remodel is one of the most sought after remodeling projects for any homeowner. One of the big reasons often cited is the boost in home value after a bathroom remodel, but many homeowners embark on this adventure because they seek to enhance the space they inhabit. Villa Custom Homes has been remodeling bathrooms for many years. Throughout our time, we’ve worked with many designs, styles, and materials. Every project is different, however, since every project speaks to a different vision. So, for today, we’d like to take a look at some bathroom remodeling tips and common remodel choices popular in the Southwest. 

From Glass to Sliding Door to Bathtub 

Depending on your particular tastes and the current setup you have right now, changing the state of your shower is one of the main transformations that people look for when remodeling their bathroom. Today, deluxe showers and body sprays, water jets, and showerheads are some of the sought after features of a modern bathroom. The classic built-in tubs are falling out of favor for many homeowners looking to spice up their design, although they are still used.  The choices and styles here are endless. Installing full glass doors add elegance and style and seem to make space look bigger and more inviting.

A classic bathtub can look great in certain spaces and with certain remodels. Whether it is a built-in bathtub or a stand-alone tub with a more contemporary design, this is one-way homeowners can change the feel of their bathroom. Another option is doing a combination of a stand-alone bathtub and a shower in a combined wet room.

Floating Vanities & Other Creative Sink Options 

A little creativity and style can go a long way when it comes to bathroom vanities. Today, it’s almost its own craft. Coming up with unique bathroom vanity options and ideas provides home designers and architects a lot of fun possibilities. People can alter anything from a long living room buffet or desk, add a stylish sink, and voila, you have an attractive sink vanity with a unique look, functionality, and befitting of the space and style you’re looking for. 

Popular Materials for Traditional Countertops 

One thing that never goes out of style, however, are materials that have been used for countertops for many years. Some of these include laminate, ceramic/porcelain tile, solid-surface, and more. 

  • Laminate materials have evolved and can look great when applied correctly and used with good design. 
  • Ceramic/porcelain tile is used in traditional decor but can be used in contemporary and more trendy styles
  • Solid-surface is a blend of acrylic and polyester. These can be formulated to resemble stone and can be versatile in shape.
