Powder Room Remodel Ideas
While small, half bathrooms serve an important purpose and can be very elegant spaces in a home. Also known as powder rooms, half bathrooms are typically used by both residents and guests alike due to their (often) central location. Remodeling your powder room is a great opportunity to showcase your personal style, whether its through detailed lighting fixtures or ornate tiling.
Designing Your Powder Room Remodel
While the small size of your powder room may seem like it hinders your ability to be creative, it actually does the opposite. Since the space is so small, this is a great chance to splurge on more luxurious materials, as you'll need very little of them. If you're looking to add marble countertops or rich wood cabinets to your house, this is the space to do so.
As your powder room will often be used by guests, go big to make a strong impression. Don't hesitate to install a stunning glass vessel sink or hang an eye-catching work of art. In this small space, every fixture matters.
The following are some other design suggestions to consider:

About Basement Bathrooms
An additional bathroom is a great way to add value to your home, especially if you are adding one on a floor that does not already have an existing bathroom. A basement bathroom is generally a less expensive project than a new ground level bathroom that requires adding square footage to the home. This is because the basement is “found space,” as opposed to an addition that would require additional flooring and roofing as well.
Designing a Basement Bathroom
Determine scope with design first. Knowing what kind of layout you want and what kind of fixtures are included in your new bathroom will help you constrain your budget and give your general contractor or subcontractors a cohesive vision to work with. For example, if space is tight, opt for a comfortable half bath or three quarter bath with a standing shower rather than trying to make a tub work in an uncomfortable space. Small bathrooms still add a lot of value to your home.
Part of this process will be working with a professional to understand what drainage options are compatible with your upper level sewage system and local building codes. These factors will influence the types of toilets and other plumbing aspects that you can include in your design. Some types of toilets that may work better in basement level bathrooms are pressure-assisted, composting, sewage-ejector, or up-flushing toilets, rather than traditional plumbing systems that rely on gravity to flush waste and are sometimes incompatible with basement bathroom additions.

If you’re looking to add a new bathroom to your house, but are working with a small amount of space, it’s important to design your project intentionally to maximize the space you do have. Planning out your project is key, so to help you with your remodel, we’ve compiled this guide to small bathrooms.
About Small Bathrooms
Small bathrooms are preferable over larger ones if you’re looking for a simpler and speedier renovation project. The installation itself is usually fairly quick, but the planning process requires a lot of attention to detail and making sure the space is utilized well. You must first decide whether you’re going to create a powder room or a full bath with the space you have.
Small Bathroom Remodel Design
The first step in the design process is to consider who will be using the bathroom. For example, a guest bath, even a full one, doesn’t require much storage space as compared to a bathroom experiencing daily use, such as a master bathroom. Additionally, a kids bathroom would be better equipped with a tub than a standing shower.
The following are some design tips to help make the space feel bigger:
Small Bathroom Remodel Cost
The average cost for a small bathroom remodel is around $8,000, but the price could vary from as low as $2,000 to as expensive as $15,000, depending on the products and customizations. A general rule of thumb, which is not always accurate, but serves as a good guide, is that labor will cost twice as much as materials. Additionally, big layout changes, such as turning a tub space into a large walk in shower, can drastically increase price.Make sure to factor into the budget having the rough-in wiring and plumbing inspected before closing up the walls and floor, as this could save repair costs in the long run.

Designing a Master Bathroom Remodel
There are a few important aspects to consider when it comes to designing your bathroom remodel: materials, style, and layout. In terms of material, your only real limit is your imagination and your budget. Homeowners are incorporating increasingly luxurious materials into their bathrooms, from granite countertops to marble showers. In terms of style, it's important to get a sense for your personal style before starting your project. Get inspired by looking at project examples online or visit a design showroom in person. Both of these options can help you get a sense for your many options, so that you can pick out your favorite materials and fixtures. Lastly, it's extremely important to consider the layout of your space when designing your project. Given the space that you're working with, you must decide whether a bath or shower is a better fit for the space. In recent years, baths have become less popular, as showers are typically more economical uses of space, and can also be customized with a variety of water features. Other design decisions, such as number of sinks or shower size, will vary greatly given the dimensions of your space.
We recommend picking out your materials, fixtures, and other design features before beginning your project so that you have a realistic sense of your projected costs.
