Bathroom Remodeling Ideas
If you are considering a remodel for your bathroom but don’t have a clear idea of exactly what you would like to do, then you are in luck. You see, many homeowners have been in your exact position before. They would love a nice change in their home, to aid in the overall aesthetic appearance of the house or to increase the resale value.
There are numerous options when remodeling the bathroom, including an entire remodel of everything. Many take the project in steps, however. They start by removing the old toilet and installing a brand new model – something that matches the overall theme or style of the room. Then, many will move on to the shower/bath. Many different models and styles of baths and showers are available, so the options are nearly limitless.

Small Bathroom Remodeling
Remodeling a small bathroom in your home may be a challenge when compared to a large bathroom due to the size restrictions. You may not have the same opportunities to install a brand new tub or shower you want due to its size. The remodel of a small bathroom can make a major impact on the comfort level in your home,as well as the resale value, should that time ever come.
When considering a remodel project, always remember to jot down ideas you have or to save some pictures of ideas you stumble across online. You can then show these to the contractor to get a clear plan of what you would like implemented within the bathroom.
Some potential remodeling ideas include a new corner shower sans the bathtub or a new toilet that matches the style of the rest of the room. Many homeowners choose to install new flooring and a sink to match. The material is completely up to you.
Along with the bathroom, one of the most popular rooms for a homeowner to remodel is the kitchen. Most people spend quite a bit of time in their kitchen either cooking for the family or simply entertaining guests. Whatever the reason, most people want their kitchen to really pop and please the eye.
When it comes to remodeling the kitchen, options include installing a brand new range or a center island that makes cooking preparation easier. You could replace the floor or install a new set of drawers and overhead cabinets. Whatever you would like to accomplish with your remodeling project, a contractor from Pratt Plumbing can tackle the job with ease.
With your kitchen remodeling project completed, you will notice how much more inviting and comforting the space is. Your resale value will also increase exponentially.
How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?
When it comes to remodeling an entire bathroom, homeowners have quite a few choices to select from in order to match their preferred style or theme for the rest of the house or room. The total cost will depend on the style and your specific budget for remodeling the entire bathroom, of course. On average, most homeowners spend around $9,300 to remodel their bathroom – though you can spend way less on the project, too. Some have managed to get away with paying between $3,500 and $7,000 to complete the entire job.
This is generally the price for small to medium-sized fixes or remodeling, however, such as new flooring or an updated sink. If you plan on remodeling the entirety of the bathroom, you are looking at spending more. Just remember, this is an investment in your home’s future and resale value, should that time ever come.
How big is a half bath?
Adding a half bath to your home is generally one of the most common requests a contractor receives in their career. Many people are looking to increase the overall value of their house, and most buyers are looking for bathroom space for their family. Depending on the layout of your home, a half bath is generally carved out using space that already exists on the floor plan, such as a large closet or a portion of a spare bedroom.
The actual size of the half bath will depend on the amount of space you are working with. Most homeowners simply want to include a working toilet and a sink to wash up with. These items do not take up too much room, thankfully. For the most part, a half bath is generally about 3 to 4 feet wide and 6 to 8 feet in length. Any smaller is too uncomfortable for people to use easily.
How high do you hang robe hooks?
When it comes to hanging a brand new robe hook in your bathroom, most contractors will install it about 70 inches above the floor. If you are installing two robe hooks within close proximity, it is best to separate them by at least 9 inches to allow a comfortable amount of room for robes and other clothing to hang loosely over the hooks. Of course, 70 inches is an estimate. If you happen to have a longer robe, then you should install the hooks a bit higher. It depends on your personal preference as much as anything else.
Robe hooks are also great for towel storage, should a towel bar not be possible within current space limitations of your bathroom. Most people hang their robe hooks just behind the bathroom door, which means they are out of the way but readily accessible when someone needs them.
How many square feet do you need for a toilet?
When installing a brand new toilet in your bathroom or in a half bath, you require a minimum of 15 inches from the center of the toilet to any wall or obstruction on each side of the unit. In total, you need about 30 inches of clearance when installing a toilet. For the entire bathroom, however, the room should be at least 15 square feet from side to side. This is the smallest amount of space needed in order to successfully accommodate the distance between your floor, ceiling, toilet, and sink. In total, the room should be around 52 inches in length, while the ceiling has to be at least 80 inches above your toilet.
These requirements seem quite confusing to many homeowners, especially those working with a budget. However, these requirements are in place for a reason; they allow the most amount of comfort and accessibility for those using the bathroom.
