Peoples idea of what the bathroom should be, has changed over the years. What used to be a pretty basic concept of sink, tub and toilet has grown into more of a spa environment. A much larger space with more natural light, steam showers, whirlpool tubs and custom makeup areas are becoming the norm.
With the huge amount of current offerings in cabinets, sinks, showers, tubs and hardware it can be quite a challenge to decide what you want in a bathroom. No matter what you decide include, the basic function of the bathroom has not changed. Many people look at the bathroom as a form of relaxation. A long soak in a whirlpool tub or a steam bath after a long day at work for example. In the past, these kinds of treatments were only available at the spa or athletic club.
In most homes the location of a bathroom is fixed between bedrooms or at the end of the hall. Enlarging the bathroom area can be expensive. In some cases, portions of bedroom closets can be reclaimed for the bathroom. In other cases the master bathroom may share a wall with the guest bathroom. In this case the two baths can be combined to make one large bathroom. This typically happens when the kids have moved out and the parents remodel the home to suit their new needs.
Due to the amount of variables involved in a bathroom remodel the costs can vary dramatically. Simply changing out an old tub, adding new cabinets and painting can give an older bath a more modern look at a lower cost. Other people may decide they want the home spa experience complete with more space, windows, tiled floors and walls. These types of improvements command a much higher price.
