Is Your Home Ready for a Fresh Start?

Three Easy Upgrades to Transform Your Bathroom

Could your home use something new? Now is the perfect time to refresh and start planning your home improvement projects for the 2019 year. Remodeling spending is expected to grow to more than $350 billion in the third quarter of this year, according to an October report from the Remodeling Futures Program at the Join Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, which is why getting a head start and planning your projects now is a good idea. Whether you’re looking to take on small or large improvements, bathrooms are a great place to start. Even the littlest updates can make a big difference, and the larger ones have the potential to turn your bathroom into a deluxe spa retreat that you’ll never want to leave. No matter what you’re looking for or the size of your budget, here are a few easy ways to give your bathroom some new major flair.


Bold and colorful are two trends we’ll continue to see in 2019. Don’t be afraid to do something different with your bathroom floor and give it an extra pop of color or pattern you may not normally go for in a larger space. This is a great focal point and can dramatically change the appearance of your bathroom. Another effective option is hardwood or laminate floors. They freshen up the room and make any space look clean and sharp. Since you’re working with a smaller area, you won’t need to buy as much flooring, allowing you to save and still make a big impact.



If you have a little more to spend, new cabinets and countertops can make a world of difference in your bathroom. From ample storage space to your choice of colors and new sink designs, you have full reign to renew your bathroom with custom cabinetry that fits your specific taste and style. And, depending on the size of space, your investment in quality materials is often fairly low compared to what you’d spend on kitchen counters. Updating your cabinets, countertops or sinks are effective ways to add value and give your bathroom a completely different feel.



Nothing screams new like swapping out your old tub or shower. Today, the possibilities are endless when it comes to the size and details of the look you want. If your space is limited, Bontrager Custom Homes has experienced custom home remodelers and can renovate your bathroom to expand the areas you want, like a larger shower or tub, which is always a good option if you’re in the market for a bigger project. Or, if you’re looking for a simpler transformation that’s still highly effective, you can experiment with different types of tile, shower heads, doors and more to spruce up your space quickly.
