RCRG Lifestyle - Upscaling your Bathroom into an In-Home Spa

As our busy lives continue with work, family and obligations you might eye your master bathroom as your next home improvement project to fuel a space in your home for de-stressing. When it comes to upgrading spaces in your home, you should always keep in mind how it could affect your capability to sell your home in the future.

If you have a small outdated master bath with limited space - this could affect the resale value of your home. When planning out your 2020 Home Improvement Projects - you can justify updating your master bath as a personal and future financial investment.

When it comes to the remodel, the biggest question is - Where do I start?

1. Preparation 

Figure out what you want to upgrade and change. Go through your master bath and make a list. This will help you visualize what you want and have a list ready for professionals to take on.  

Main things to keep in mind are color scheme, which fixtures you want to upgrade, storage spaces to change/upgrade and where your utilities are located. 

Do some research and save different bathroom designs that you like. There are so many trends and directions you can take your bathroom. Choose what works best for you! 

2. Professional vs. DIY

Master Bathroom remodeling can be a heavy project to take on for those with no experience; especially when it involves plumbing, tiling, electrical work nd even demolition in some cases. Even serious DIYers might find there are some challenges they might need to seek further expertise. 

When planning out the scope of work of your project, keep in mind that there could be setbacks in the process, as well. With the master bathroom being an essential space for your daily living you don't want a long delayed process. If you are interested in looking for professionals to help you with your space, please reach out to us to give you some of our local recommendations. For resale, we always recommend connecting with a professional to work on large-scale, invasive projects in your home. Down the road, if you decide to sell your home, during the home inspection these completed projects will be reviewed and measured to local building code and a professional standard. Utilizing a professional ensures this standard will be met - helping ensure no surprises down the road.

3. A Deeper Look into Color Schemes 

Picking out your color schemes can be a fun process, helping bring the room altogether. You have to think about paint color, mirrors, tiling, tile grout, accessories and any main features of your master bathroom. Lay it all out in front of you and test it out in different lighting within the room.

4. Higher Scale Upgrades - In-Home Spa

You can also look into some higher scale upgrades to input into your master bathroom to create an in-home spa experience. 

Look into your shower experience and check out the latest improvements you can get installed. A steam shower has been the most popular addition, giving you all the perks to a steam room without it majorly affecting your water bill. A body sprayer or a rain shower head, can also give you that extra water pressure you have been looking for. If you are a fan of bubble baths, a Jacuzzi Bathtub can give you that spa experience in your home, as well. A simple and life-changing addition can be a hand held sprayer that makes it easier to clean your shower or assist in washing your hair after leaving in a hair mask.

5. First Steps to Demolition & Installation

Make sure to have your to-do list together and in the correct order. If you have professional help, match their services to your timeline and discuss the plan with them. Be ready to start utilizing another bathroom in your home and have a "work in progress" in your home for a bit, depending on the scope of your remodel. This can be a stressful process, but as long as you have done your research and discussed it with a professional, it will bring you closer to the final product of enjoying an in-home spa. 

6. Paint & Final Touches 

If you've invested in new tile, new sink and shower (the entire package) make sure to discuss with a professional or do research when it is the best time to paint. Although, if you were looking for a small upgrade of new paint, accessories, and possibly a shower head make sure to tape before painting. You can find mirrors/art and accessories online or at many local stores. Be sure to get measurements and compare it to your space. We always find some great accessories at Home Goods/Marshalls, Lowes/Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond and more.

Home upgrades are such an exciting venture to freshen up a home. Whether you decided to tackle your master bathroom in a larger or small scale project it will definitely add to your home and life.
