Ten Ideas for Renovating Your Bathroom with South Texas Style

Friday, January 19, 2024


Renovating your bathroom can really pay off when it comes time to sell your house. Some reports conclude that an upscale bathroom renovation can increase the sales price of your home 60 percent more than you spend on remodeling. For simpler, less expensive bathroom remodels, the return on investment is over 70 percent.

And, even if you are not planning to sell your home, you can join the 45 percent of homeowners who eventually make their bathrooms more age-friendly, the 32 percent of homeowners identified by Houzz who upgrade the technology in their bathrooms, or the 48 percent of homeowners who renovate their bathrooms just because they want a different look.

Nationally, the average bathroom renovation costs about $10,000, with some projects costing $35,000 or more. But homeowners in Corpus Christi can get a new look for a lot less with these 10 great bathroom renovation ideas.

Add a Vanity

Most bathroom renovations include adding a vanity. The most popular color for bathroom vanities in Corpus Christi is white, but many homeowners look for vanities in wood tones. Wood and wood laminates are easy to clean and keep looking great, especially for families with children.

Replace Dark Paint with Bright Wallpaper

Dark bathroom walls are depressing. Bright wallpaper can beautify your bathroom and give you a more cheerful start to your day.

Paint Your Cabinets

Another easy fix for dull bathroom is repainting white or gray bathroom cabinets in color. This bathroom renovation costs very little but adds a great deal to the appeal of your bathroom.

Install a Touchless Faucet

Sometimes you just don't want to touch the faucet when you wash your hands in the bathroom. Some faucets can be operated with a tap from your toe, and sensor faucets come on when you wave your hands beneath the tap.

Replace the Commode

High-tech commodes still aren't common, but Houzz tells us that more and more homeowners are going for modern toilet technology:

  • 24 percent of commodes come with a built-in bidet.
  • 17 percent of new toilets are self-cleaning.
  • 15 percent of new commodes are heated.
  • 13 percent have a night light.
  • 9 percent have overflow protection.
  • 9 percent deodorize themselves.

Install a Free-Standing Flat-Bottom Tub

Freestanding tubs are a popular bathroom renovation option for bathroom renovation in Corpus Christi. They are the tub of choice for adults who want the perfect tub for a relaxing soak. Consider a tub made of cast polymer, which uses natural stone.

If you just want a tub for giving the kids a bath, consider a smaller alcove tub.

Add a Walk-In Shower

A lot of the work of bathroom remodelers in Corpus Christi is replacing shower-tub combinations with walk-in showers. Some more mature homeowners choose them because they are easier for getting in and out, but families of any age can appreciate the fact that a walk-in shower gives you more room and a chance to make sure your design is consistent throughout the bathroom.

Replace Wall Art with Wall Treatments

Elevate the feel of your bathroom by removing art you are tired of and cabinets you don't use and installing a wall treatment to give the whole bathroom a new look.

Replace a Single Sink with a Double Vanity

Make it easier for your family to get going in the morning.

Make Your Bathroom Feel Cooler

Homeowners in Corpus Christi spend a lot of the year fighting heat and humidity. Replace retro cream, brown, and pink tones with modern mint and white shades to make your bathroom feel cooler.
