What Is A “Luxury Bathroom Remodel” In
Sarasota FL And What You
Should Expect

Why Your Sarasota, FL Home NEEDS A
Luxury Bathroom

When you look at your current Sarasota, FL bathroom, what comes to mind immediately? Do you think outdated, boring, or small, or maybe you just sigh with an acceptance that it will never be the luxury bathroom you have always wanted?

A luxury bathroom remodel is a great improvement for your home. It not only will help your current bathroom look better…but it will definitely become one of your favorite places to relax.

What Is A Luxury Bathroom Remodel?

A luxury bathroom remodel takes your existing bathroom from bland and functional to beautiful and relaxing! You will find a luxury bathroom has all that you need plus a little something extra to easily make this a favorite room of your home.

It is not just master bedroom bathrooms that can be turned into luxury bathrooms, any bathroom in your home can be turned into a luxury bathroom!

What To Expect During A Luxury Bathroom Remodel

Remodeling any area of your home is going to be a process. However, when working with the right designer and construction crew, this does not have to be a project that you end up regretting

So, what should you expect during your luxury bathroom remodel?

Bathroom Will Be Out Of Commission 

When your remodel starts, chances are your bathroom will be out of commission during this process. Bathroom remodels can take anywhere from a couple of weeks or more to several weeks, depending upon the amount of work that is being done.

A luxury bathroom remodel may include changing out the showers, tubs, toilets, vanities, flooring, installing new lights, and much more. Thus, expect this to take some time.

For example, many of our clients want to remove the unused garden tub in their bathroom and convert this into something new such as expanding the shower or adding more storage space.

There Will Be Noise 

There will be noise in your home while this remodel is happening in the bathroom from time to time. This is to be expected. However, if you are someone who works from home, this may be an issue.

We recommend that you schedule your remodel during a time that you may not have many online meetings or when you can go to a location during the more noisy times of the remodel.

Expect A Mess 

While the old items are being removed from the bathroom, there will be a mess. There will be dust from moving in and out of the bathroom and hauling in new items.

However, do not start to panic just yet. While there may be a mess during the process, once your luxury bathroom is complete, the mess will be cleaned up.

We take steps to ensure the mess is contained in the bathroom we are updating and not scattered throughout your home. We wouldn’t want someone messing up our homes, so we give our customers the same courtesy.

Decisions Will Need To Be Made 

A luxury bathroom remodel is all about upgrading a bathroom to your specific tastes. Thus, there will be decisions that need to be made. This is a step that will take place before any remodeling happens.

Expect to spend some time designing your bathroom with our professional designers to ensure we are giving you the luxury bathroom you have always dreamed of having.

How To Make Your Bathroom Remodel Easier

There are several ways you can make the remodel of your bathroom a bit easier for you and your family. Here are a few ideas to remember:

  • Remove all your personal items from the bathroom before crews arrive to start the remodel.
  • Have a little flexibility with the remodel and remember your end goal.
  • Ensure there is a clear path from the front door to your bathroom to make it easier for the crew to come in and out of your home.
  • Pets and children should not be allowed into the remodel area, as this could be a danger to them.
  • Trust your designers and contractors. It can be easy to go into a partially finished bathroom and think it is not what you expected or it is a disaster. This takes time to complete!

Elements To Consider For Your Luxury Bathroom Remodel

Once you understand what to expect during your luxury bathroom remodel, the decision process starts. What are some of the luxury bathroom elements you may want to consider?

Increased Square Footage 

If you have the option to increase the actual size of your bathroom, why not take it? Just a few extra square feet can make all the difference in a bathroom!

Add More Storage Solutions 

Think about adding in more storage solutions, or even some hidden storage concepts. Every bathroom needs areas to store towels, products, and the like. And the more storage you have, the less clutter is seen on vanity tops.

Upgrade The Lighting 

Most people want to go for natural lighting in their bathroom, and with upgraded lighting, this dream can become reality. Think about using something that is high-end and luxurious to make this a focal point when you walk into the room.

Upgrade The Exhaust Fan 

Many people find their current exhaust fan makes a lot of noise, without really pulling moisture out of the room. Upgrade this exhaust fan to one that is quieter and pulls more moisture, actually doing the job you need it to do.

High-End Fixtures 

Using high-end fixtures is one of the main methods to end up with a luxury bathroom. High-end fixtures like:

  • Detachable shower heads
  • Rainfall shower heads
  • Modern and sleek faucets
  • Programmable showers
  • Soaker tubs or jacuzzis

New Sleek Flooring 

Upgrade the flooring to fit in with the rest of your luxury bathroom. Go with high-grade vinyl, marble, or tile throughout the bathroom and the walls to make this unique, yet also functional.

Go With One Of A Kind Elements 

While nothing is truly one of a kind, you will find that the way you integrate different components can make it feel like you have something that is one of a kind!

Custom vanities, custom marble for sinks, and other elements are those little extras that add a luxury feel to your bathroom.
