7 Golden Rules of Bath Remodeling
With a little guidance and design know-how, it's easy to create a bathroom that meets your every need.
5. Choose Timeless Materials
Keep an eye toward longevity when remodeling a bath. "The bathroom should last a long time," says Ingram. "I love natural materials -- nothing too decorative that can come back to haunt you."
Avoid trendy colors and design fads when selecting tiles, faucets, and fixtures. Classic elements, such as subway tiles, vintage-type nickel fixtures, and claw-footed tubs often make better investments.
"We have so many clients who live in 1920s houses who love their original bathrooms and old tiles. I like to think the bathrooms I design will be around at least 80 years," Ingram says.
