5 Features to Include in Your Bathroom Remodel, Rainy Lake, Minnesota

Are you looking for a home remodeling project that adds value? Consider a bathroom remodel. If you’re not sure where to start or which changes you can make to your existing bathroom, here’s a guide to some of the most popular upgrades.

Bathroom Upgrades to Include When Home Remodeling

1. Small Tiles

If you have an existing walk-in shower, installing new tile is an inexpensive home remodeling project. Use smaller tiles to add texture and prevent people from slipping and falling. They also allow you to get creative with the design and patterns, adding more aesthetic appeal to your shower.

2. Double Vanity

Single sinks are out, and dual vanities are in—especially in the master bathroom. These add more cabinet space below and can give you and your partner separate areas to brush your teeth or put on makeup. You can even take it a step further and put a tall cabinet storage unit in the middle on top of the counter, giving you even more space for bathroom essentials.


3. Walk-In Shower

Replace that standard tub and shower combo with something more modern and accessible: a walk-in shower. There are countless ways to include a new shower design and layout. You could install glass doors around the enclosure, or nix the doors altogether and build a tile wall, giving the open shower area privacy on the other side.

4. Window

The bathroom is the one room in the house where humidity tends to be a problem. A quick and easy solution is to install a glazed window in the shower area. This not only gives humidity a place to escape but also adds natural lighting and makes the bathroom feel open and airy.

5. Modern Toilet

A fantastic way to increase the value of your home and save space in a smaller bathroom is to install a low-flow, hidden-tank toilet. These toilets are energy-efficient and can save you money on your bill by using less water when you flush them. They’re also stylish and make the space look sleek and clean.
