At Accent Interiors, we’re here to help you get the perfect bathroom remodel for your home. We have a number of fantastic toolsto help you organize everything from custom cabinets to granite or quartz countertops.

Apart from our fantastic services in terms of cabinet and countertop products, we can also help with a wide range of planning areas. Here are several elements of a bathroom remodel we recommend you start planning well in advance to ensure you get a great result without overspending.

Budget

Before you start with anything else, you have to sit down and lay out your precise budget for the remodeling project. A bathroom remodel planned properly will come without too many possible interruptions or hiccups, so you’ll be in good shape if you lay out your major expenses to begin with and leave just a bit of wiggle room.

Setting a solid budget helps us out as professionals, as well. It gives us a specific target number to stay below, allowing us to more accurately source materials and give you quotes. Being accurate and honest here is very important.

Amenities and Desires

Tied directly to budget will be the various amenities you’re looking for in the bathroom, plus the qualities you want for these amenities. All bathrooms will have basics like toilets, sinks and water features, but there’s a great deal of variability in terms of materials and what you’ll spend on these essentials.

Beyond this, your budget could vary greatly depending on your tastes and desires. This is also an important area when it comes to space, which can be at a premium in many bathrooms. You might want additional cabinet space for storage, for instance, making custom cabinets a consideration.

Use and Function

Even within the same house, different bathrooms may have widely different purposes. A large master bathroom, for instance, will come with large floor spaces and plenty of countertop area, plus a high number of amenities. Those who are regularly in the bathroom may even prioritize comfort or entertainment items.

On the flip side, the powder room downstairs will have very different needs and future uses. There won’t be as much countertop or cabinet space available, and you can usually get by with minimal amenities.

Energy Efficiency

It’s 2018, and that means you should be considering energy efficient appliances wherever possible. Think of things like low-flow toilets and efficient sink options – not only will these benefit your environment, they’ll actually save you money in the long run. They help increase home value exponentially, plus can reduce waste and utility bills quickly. Even if this slightly stretches your budget temporarily, it will be worth it down the line.
