5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Bathroom Design

Are you planning some bathroom renovations for your Pittsburgh home? Well, the options are almost endless. Some find it difficult to make the final decision because they don’t want to miss out on the perfect bathroom. As a bathroom remodeling company, West Shore understands how hard it can be to choose from all of the available fixtures, layouts, and decor in our selection. To make your part in planning a little less stressful, we’ve put together five tips to help you pick out a bathroom design.

#1 Consider the Size of the Space

Some bathrooms aren’t large enough for the grand plans that homeowners have in mind. A hallway bath isn’t suited to a big corner tub or a separate tub and shower. Yet, a master bath can look empty with small fixtures. If you want a balanced, functional room, keep the space available in mind when picking out those fixtures.

#2 Go for Low Maintenance Bathroom Ideas

When you are going for a bathroom makeover, you might as well pick out low maintenance options that are easy to keep clean and last a long time. This isn’t a problem when you work with West Shore. Most of our bathroom fixtures feature a microbe-resistant non-porous acrylic coating. We also provide a lifetime warranty on all of our bathroom remodeling services.

#3 Consider Accessibility Needs

While you may not have a problem using the tub or shower now, there could be a time in the future when accessibility is a concern. Now is the perfect time to install a barrier-free shower, bench seating, or even handle bars around the tub. Plus, it’s a great feature for when older guests stay over.

#4 Look at a Variety of Designs

Take the time to explore all of the options when planning your bathroom remodel. You’ll have to live with the new decor and layout for a long time. Consider all of your options in fixtures, such as walk-in tub, alcove tub, corner tub, or a tub to shower conversion. Pick out the wall surround, tiles, and flooring you like best. Be sure that the toilet is comfortable and durable, and sinks are easy to clean and use. This way you’ll be completely happy with the finished look of your bathroom.

#5 Account for Every Fixture & Accessory

When planning out your bathroom renovations make sure to account for every piece of hardware, fixture, and decor used in the space. This includes everything from the wall tiles to the glass doors on your shower enclosure. With a completed item list, you’ll be able to create an accurate budget for the purchase and installation of your fixtures.

Save yourself the hassle of having to account for everything with an easy, free price estimate for a bathroom makeover from West Shore! We’ll be happy to set up an in-home consultation to go over your bathroom ideas too. Fill out the online form or give us a phone call to chat right away!

We love our new master bath shower. Looks fantastic. Matches the other colors of our bath so well. Jerry and Eric did an outstanding job. When they arrived, they quickly set up and went to work, not wasting time. It was obvious they knew what to do. And the results indicate it. They cleaned up afterwards. Most professional in all they did.

- Wes E.

We had our new shower installed yesterday by Sam and Jose who were extremely professional and explained each step of the install as they completed it. We were very impressed by their attitude and work ethic. And the finished product looks great.

- Bob G.

Damon, John & Elliot did a great job installing my new front door. Showed up on time, professional and courteous. Very meticulous and made sure I was happy with the finished product. Explained what they were doing and why. I would highly recommend this company to my friends.

James and Alex removed and installed a new front door May 2020; Jim the finisher. All 3 men are professional/knowledge and are great ambassadors for West Shore. We are very happy with the finished project and would highly recommend. Thanks for a job Well Done!

Rick, Adrian, Jeff and Tony installed 4 windows for me. They did an excellent job. They were meticulous about their workmanship and carefully installed the windows and they made sure to clean up after the job. Would definitely recommend them to anybody.

It's been 2 years now and I still LOVE my gorgeous shower!!! AND they got the old shower removed, fixed a severe leak and installed the new shower all in one day!!!Fantastic job!! I really cannot say enough nice things about this project. Oh, and they hooked us up with a lender who charged no interest as long as we paid it off in time (which we did). I highly recommend Westshore!!!

- Bonnie H.

Highly recommend West Shore! Our old “new” home can be quite difficult when it comes to renovations. Craig D and Bill R were very professional and did a great job!

I was very well pleased with Neil Parker; he wasn't pushy. Danny and Trevor were spot-on, and I was very well pleased when they left. I didn't have to clean or do anything, that really made my day!

This was my second project by West Shore. Both projects were very professional, efficient, and wonderful. I have never had a work crew at my house like West Shore.

- Dawn S.

Lennie S. from West Shore Homes was an absolute professional when giving us our initial appointment. He did a phenomenal job at walking us through the process and making sure we got the design we needed. Really appreciated his acumen and friendly attitude.
