Things to Know About Bathroom Remodeling in NYC Within Budget

Here are a few things that you should know about bathroom remodeling in NYC, all while staying within budget.

1. Create a Detailed Plan Before Starting Remodeling:

Before you begin bathroom remodeling, it’s important to put your expectations into perspective when it comes to how much money you’re willing to invest. You need to find out what size you want your bathroom and the quality of materials you want to use. Perfection is in the planning, and without knowing these details, the cost of your remodel could be affected drastically.

2. Picking the Wrong Grout is a Disaster:

Unknown to many, grout can actually make or break the look of your bathroom! Picking the wrong color of grout can devastate the entire look. Green Apple Construction recommends never opting for bright white grout because although it will look gleamingly clean for a while, the color will quickly change, creating a completely different atmosphere. Color choice is of utter importance!

3. Functionality Before Beauty:

Functionality must come before beauty when remodeling your bathroom! Being the most used room in your house, having a bathroom that is inconvenient to use will annoy you to no ends. Here are some tips that our team at Green Apple Construction recommend! Add more storage spaces. Keep your towels, toiletries, and other daily essentials tucked away. Think of the areas in your bathroom that bug you the most, and determine how you can solve the problem in your remodel. Toilet handles need to be jiggled every once in a while to flush correctly? Stub your toe every time you go into the bathtub? Cabinet drawer slams shut whenever closing? Write it down for your next bathroom remodel!

4. Lighting Matters:

You can’t just install a few light fixtures in your small bathroom. Even the most gorgeous bathroom will look incomplete without proper lighting in place. Layered lighting can enhance the beauty of your bathroom and will distribute the light evenly for you. Make sure you think twice before choosing the lights for your bathroom.

5. Proper Bath Ventilation:

Bathroom ventilation is important due to the extra humidity bathrooms tend to have. Taking showers, flushing the toilet, and washing your hands are all activities which add unwanted moisture to your bathroom’s air. Ventilation removes the trapped moisture from your bathroom, which provides great benefits, ranging from your own personal health to your bathroom’s lifespan.

6. Design With the Future in Mind:

Does your bathroom look like a fossil from the 1980s? Dinosaurs are cool and all, but maybe it’s time to add a few modern touches. From new cabinetry, flooring, counters, or even just a fresh coat of paint, there are plenty of ways to bring your bathroom back from the dead.

7. Don’t Make the Toilet the First Thing You See after opening the Door:

Oftentimes our bathroom doors get left open, meaning that you or any guest in your home walking by will see the toilet. At Green Apple Construction, we never judge based on looks, but no one’s perfect, and we tend to make an exception to that rule for toilets. Toilet’s aren’t especially great to look at and when they’re staring straight into your eyes, it makes it even worse. So, try not to make that toilet the first thing you see in your bathroom!
