Master Bath Remodeling Tips

A bathroom may only account for a small percentage of your home’s square footage, but keep these simple master bath remodeling tips from CME Corp if you want a smooth remodel!


Plan the project: Before you jump straight into the project, plan. The best master bath remodeling tip we can give you is plan, plan, and plan! Write a detailed list of everything you want to get done and dictate the style of the bathroom you want to great. Things that are often overlooked include grout and baseboard trim. Make sure to review both with your contractor so that you fully understand the scope of work.

Set a schedule: One of the biggest pieces of advice we can give you, is to create a sense of accountability. Create a work-back schedule so that you can keep track of delivery dates, contractor work days, and even holidays or scheduled time off. By keeping a schedule you will ensure that you do not have any scheduling errors, and it gives you an expected time frame for when the project will be complete.


Don’t go at it alone: Did you know that most of our contracts come from failed DIY Master Bath Remodels? While we understand that most homeowners can replace a toilet or upgrade a light fixture, dealing with complex plumbing and electrical systems is a completely different ballgame. Take the time to use a licensed professional who will understand the state of your bathroom.

Design for efficiency: Pick appliances and fixtures that will save energy and conserve water. These items are good for the planet and your wallet! Make sure to include replacing older water fixtures with newer ones that will save you gallons of water and money each month.

Keep your resale value in mind: One of the hardest parts of a master bathroom remodel is thinking about your resale value down the line. Neutral colors are always a winner, and while we encourage you to put your mark on the bathroom, make sure that it can be easily staged.

Communicate to reduce confusion: The key to any good renovation is communication. Problems arise when there is a failure to communicate, so do so often and with authority. Clarify every part of the project, ask questions, and make sure you are not the source of miscommunication!
