Whether you’re looking for better accessibility features for your bathroom or want to transform your master bath into an oasis, you’re likely to have a list of questions a mile long. You’ve come to the right place! All States Home Improvement has compiled answers to some of the most common questions our customers ask us each day. 

Are bathroom renovations a good investment? 

An updated bathroom is an attractive selling point when reselling your home. Depending on the size of your project, you can expect to see a return of 50-100% or more for your investment in a bathroom remodel. Contributing factors include the housing market in your area as well as the upgrades you choose. Plus, who can put a price on your safety with an accessible walk-in shower or the satisfaction of spending time in a newly updated bathroom? 

What should I consider for a bathroom remodel? 

Planning for a new bathroom remodel requires careful consideration to ensure a successful and stress-free project. You should assess your needs and preferences, create a budget that aligns with your financial capabilities and the scope of the project, research and gather inspiration from various sources to define your style and desired features, and consult with All States Home Improvement to get expert advice on the feasibility of your ideas and to develop a realistic timeline. 

How can I improve the accessibility of my bathroom? 

Bathrooms can be one of the most dangerous rooms in a home for those with limited mobility. The first step in improving the accessibility of your bathroom is to convert a shower tub combo to a walk-in shower that you can easily walk or roll into without having to raise your leg to step into. Additionally, adding a no-slip chair or bench and grab bars in the shower will put your mind at ease in the event you lose your balance or need to rest during bathing. The toilet is also a great place to add grab bars to improve accessibility. 

What bathroom projects make the biggest impact? 

One of the most impactful upgrades for a master bath is converting a standard bath and shower combo to a custom walk-in shower. This remodel can provide: 

  • Style – The streamlined design of a walk-in shower modernizes the space. 
  • Accessibility – This transformation often leads to increased accessibility for individuals with mobility concerns.  
  • Reduced maintenance – A walk-in shower is easier to clean and maintain, saving homeowners time and effort.  
  • Space – Removing a cumbersome bathtub can free up valuable floor space, allowing for a more spacious and versatile bathroom layout.  

How can I make a small bathroom feel bigger? 

With the right design elements, a small bathroom can feel bigger. You should consider using: 

  • Glass shower doors – This will allow you to see further into your bathroom, which will help open the space.
  • Light colors – Opt for light colors on the walls and accessories, creating an airy and open atmosphere.
  • Mirrors – The strategic placement of mirrors can work wonders, reflecting light and giving the illusion of additional space.
  • Floating shelves – Consider installing floating shelves or cabinets to free up floor space and maintain a clutter-free environment.
  • Compact fixtures – Choose compact and multifunctional pieces that save and add a touch of modern elegance. 

How much will a bathroom remodel cost? 

The price of your project will vary greatly depending on what your objective is. Investing in a walk-in tub carries a different price tag than converting your shower and tub combo to a modern walk-in shower. The best way to answer this question is to contact us for a consultation. Our team will go over your options and offer solutions to fit your budget. We also offer financing options. 

What to expect from the new bath consultation with All States Home Improvement? 

Our team will set up a time that is convenient for you and all decision makers to meet at your home. You will want to allow up to 90 minutes for the appointment to have time to look at options and get all your questions or concerns answered. Together you will look at the best selections for your new bath. There are many color and design choices for the shower walls including the look of stone, tile, and even concrete. In addition to selecting your shower wall design, you will be assisted in selecting the shower floor base color and fixtures as well as many add-on options of shelving, grab bars, bench, shaving ledge, and shower doors. You should receive a quote within 24 hours and often at the end of the appointment. 

If you decide to move forward on your new shower, your bath consultant will confirm your selections and give you a timeline for scheduling. You will be notified along the way to finalize your exact installation date. 

How can I prepare for a new bathroom remodel? 

You will want to clear your bathroom for the installation team and remove any items from the floor, wall, and vanity. The main thing to remember when planning for a new bath installation is that you will be down a bathroom during the remodel. So, if your home only has one toilet, you will need to find an alternative option for the duration of the job. Keep in mind, although our team will work as quickly as possible and clean up at the end of each day, there will be some expected noise and mess with a bathroom remodel. 

How long will a new bath installation take? 

As with the price of your project, the amount of time it will take relies heavily on the unique specifications of the job. Generally, our team can install a new shower or bath in only two days.
