Planning A Home Redesign? It Demands Custom Bathroom Features!
Make Bathroom Remodeling an Integral Part of Your Home Renovation
You may have heard many home improvement contractors say that a home redesign demands custom bathroom features. One of the main reasons for investing in a bathroom remodel is that it yields an average return of 62%. Which means, if you spend $10,000 on a bathroom renovation, the value of your home will likely increase by $6,200. This figure will be even higher for a bathroom with custom features.
At Flegel’s Construction, we believe that including a master bathroom upgrade is a smart way of maximizing your home remodeling budget. It is especially effective if you can achieve a good mix of timeless features and current trends. Our design experts share their top bathroom renovation ideas for creating stylish, relaxing, and distinctive bath spaces.
Custom Features for an Exceptional Bathroom Remodel
Upgrading or refreshing an old bathroom is as much about creating a rejuvenating, spa-like space as increasing the value of your home. Whether it is a powder room, guest bathroom, or ensuite bath, a few custom upgrades can make a big style statement. In fact, you can add a personal touch to one or more elements within your bathroom. It could be the sink, tub, shower, walls, floors, or even the light fixtures. For example:
- Creative paneling: Using interesting and unusual materials for the flooring or wall paneling will give your bathroom a luxurious look. In one of our Palo Alto Eichler home renovations, we used the premium mirrored Duchateau wood on the flooring, back wall, and tub skirt for a plush, enhanced appearance.
- Stylish sinks: Despite being one of the smallest elements in your bathroom, a bold, unique sink can make a big visual impact. Explore some of these options:
- A self-rimming copper vessel sink with iron bracket mounts for a timeless, old-world charm
- A clear glass pedestal sink to create visual interest in a compact bathroom or powder room
- A handcrafted hardwood sink in a one-of-a-kind shape with natural resistance to mold or rot
- An elegant floating washplane sink with no visible drains for a contemporary look
In our Greenmeadow Palo Alto home redesign, which also featured on the Dwell Magazine Silicon Valley Home Tour, we incorporated a pair of gorgeous stainless-steel vessel sinks in the ensuite bath. These sinks tied in beautifully with the rest of the home’s custom stainless-steel cladding on the fireplace and in the kitchen.
- Statement tubs: As one of the largest fixtures in your bathroom, a stylish tub can be the highlight of your space. Explore options that are new and unique. For example, a classic, claw-foot tub, a Japanese-style wooden soaking tub, a modern freestanding one, or a whirlpool tub with water or air jets. In one of our recent home remodeling projects in Sunnyvale, we installed a chic white, free standing tub with sleek lines and a slippered rim. Paired with other custom bathroom features, such as a floating sink, a curbless shower, elegant lighting, and soothing white floor tiles, this bathroom epitomizes the modern minimalist style.
From sensor-based ventilation and heating and hidden drains, to smart toilets, or bold accent walls, we have incorporated various other features for making bathrooms as understated or elaborate as the homeowners prefer.
