At Refresh, we’ve helped thousands of homeowners through renovations. Some were challenging, some were a breeze. But what did every project have in common? The homeowners had questions! We know remodeling a master bathroom is equal parts exciting and overwhelming, so we put this article together to help get you started.
The average master bathroom size is between 75ft2 and 200ft2, with larger measurements being more common in new builds. That gives you plenty of square footage to work with and create a fantastic master bathroom of your dreams. But why bother renovating your master bath?
The convenience and privacy that a master bath provides is unmatched. But if it’s cramped, dark, or poorly laid out, it’s a waste of valuable space that ends up causing more harm than good. Stressful mornings and rushed bedtime routines are no way to start or end the day.
Peak functionality is different for everyone. For some, it could look like a built-in washer and dryer with concealed laundry storage; for others, the solution to toothbrush battles is a master bathroom double vanity. With an efficient layout that can accommodate what’s needed and provide an organized space, the clutter reduction and improved day-to-day use of your master bath will be worth the investment.
Some homeowners even opt to include a walk-in wardrobe within their master suite layout to further streamline their routine and centralize their tasks, making the space that much more effective.
Functionality in a bathroom is critical, but the design is what people dream of. Who wouldn’t love coming home to a spa-like experience? A relaxing ambience with beautiful tile flooring that’s heated from beneath or a peaceful soak in a modern bathtub. Regardless of what your dream design looks like, odds are it’s not the original 1970s-style bathroom that came with your home. People renovate their master bathrooms to create a place they can look forward to using.
The best master bathroom layouts and styles are open to interpretation, but there are a few design components that aren’t up for debate: mirrors, vanities, and lighting. Without these, you just have a boring bathroom.
Master bathroom vanities and mirrors typically go hand in hand, but for a more bespoke look, find pieces that are complementary rather than a set. Pulling items off the showroom floor will quickly make your master bath look dated and cookie-cutter. Sourcing individual fixtures and furniture gives off a designer feel that you won’t find anywhere else.
In this master bathroom renovation, the homeowners combined different colors, textures, and shapes to give this coastal-themed bathroom an elevated and unique look that wouldn’t be achievable with a basic stock room vanity.
Strategic lighting decisions are just as important. LED front and backlit mirrors are functional space-savers for a sleek, modern aesthetic. If you’re going for something more rustic like a farmhouse master bathroom, you may want to discuss other options with your designer; pendant lighting is a good alternative.
Whatever your style, the selection of mirrors, vanities, and lighting is key to a successful and functional master bathroom design.
There’s no real difference between the cost to renovate a master bathroom vs. a traditional bathroom. However, where you’ll incur significant costs is if you’re adding a master bathroom to a layout that didn’t have one before. Structural work, plumbing, and electrical modifications are more expensive than cosmetic upgrades and often require permits which cost more time and money.
Depending on where you are in the US, you can expect to spend anywhere between $25,000-$75,000* on your master bathroom remodel. We know that’s a big range and doesn’t apply to every situation, but at Refresh, we always give homeowners a fixed quote before any work begins. It’s part of our proven 5-step process. This way, everyone is well-informed and can make changes to the scope to fit your budget or vice versa.
Modern gray master bathroom ideas have long been a staple starting point for many homeowners looking for inspiration. Gray is a soothing tone and symbolizes relaxation and calmness, but there are plenty of other options on the color spectrum to evoke the same feelings. If you’re after a serene vibe but want to move past the neutral color, consider a palette of soft earthy greens, powdery blues, or shades of lilac.
Remember, color isn’t only for walls! Whether bold or muted, master bathroom cabinets are an alternative way to bring color into your design without painting the entire room. And, if you can’t find the right piece for your space, investing in a custom design is a great option. Our Renovation Consultants work with extensive networks of industry professionals and can help you find a specialist or artisan to bring your custom pieces to life.
