Do You Need Permits to Remodel a Bathroom?

Do You Need Permits to Remodel a Bathroom?

May 17, 2023

The idea of remodeling your bathroom is an exciting one! You get the opportunity to take your builder-grade space from a common appearance to a truly one-of-a-kind oasis. If only it were as easy as that, though. There are many steps that go into making this retreat your own, permitting being one of them. 

Without the proper permitting required for the job, homeowners face a whole host of issues ahead, ones that may not be so easily fixed. If you’re starting to plan your bathroom remodel and you’re not sure about the permitting process or the remodeling process in general, you’re in the right place. Let’s jump right into the main question! 

Do you need a permit to remodel a bathroom?

The short answer is yes; most of the time, you’ll need a permit. For small projects like a new coat of paint, you’re probably safe without one. Otherwise, it’s likely you’ll have to go through the permitting process.    

Even so, let’s start out by establishing the fact that not all permitting requirements are the same across the board, though. Your city and state likely carry different conditions than neighboring places, so it’s always a good idea to go straight to the source. Contact your local entities for their exact permitting specifications. 

That said, there are aspects of any bathroom remodel where you can safely assume you’ll need a permit. For example, if you plan to demolish and move any walls, change the piping, or move any of the main electrical components, you’ll need to obtain proper permitting. More on the specific types of permits later! 

The thing is, even changes that seem small will likely interfere with an element of work that would require a permit. For instance, if your goal is to lay tile, facets of your plumbing will probably need adjusting, which needs permitting. Likewise, installing a waterproof pan may not require removing a wall but still has to have a permit. 

If you’re still unclear on whether or not to pull a permit, Contractors State License Board makes things pretty clear when it states, “No building or structure may be erected, constructed, enlarged, altered, repaired, moved, improved, removed, converted or demolished unless a separate permit for each building or structure has first been obtained from the building official.”

What’s the point of permitting a bathroom remodel?

The permits to remodel a bathroom might seem insignificant at first glance. As if a simple piece of paper makes a difference in the grand scheme of things, but in reality, it makes a huge difference. The point of permitting a bathroom remodel is two-fold. First and foremost, it ensures that the work performed by whomever you’ve hired has been done up to code and that it was a job well done. 

Inspections from the permits allow homeowners to see areas in which the work was done incorrectly or even sloppily. Second, it gives homeowners and the city certainty that the work done within the structure is safe. Again, any hazards or missteps can be made known to the contractor via the permitting inspections and then rectified before the permit is closed. 

Types of Permits Your Job May Require

Depending on what your remodel entails, you’ll need different types of permits. Take a look at the most common types of permitting below required for a bathroom remodel.  

  • Mechanical: A permit that often goes forgotten, mechanical permits are required when you’re working on ventilation systems as well as heating and cooling systems. A common mechanical permit homeowners can expect is for their HVAC system; other scenarios include bathroom ventilation systems. 
  • Electrical: An electrical permit will be needed if you’re moving the placement of or installing new wiring. For example, moving or creating new electrical outlets, installing a fan for ventilation, moving light fixture placement, or adding a new place for a fixture. 
  • Structural: A structural permit is just as it sounds. If you’re making any serious changes to the structure of your bathroom, you’ll need a permit. It’s not unusual for homeowners to demolish or move walls during a bathroom remodel to open the space up. That’ll definitely require permitting in order to remain in code. 
  • Plumbing: As with the other permits, a plumbing permit is required for big changes like moving plumbing to another location within the bathroom. Other instances include re-piping, water heater replacements, drain pipe replacements, and the like. 

For some homeowners unfamiliar with the remodeling process, it may feel intimidating to pull permits; some may even worry they’ll miss a crucial permit required for the job. This is where an experienced contractor leads the way. They’ll pull all the proper permits, which is why it’s important to select a contractor well-versed in remodels. 

How to Apply For Permits to Remodel a Bathroom – 5 Easy Steps

If you end up choosing to pull permits yourself, no problem. Generally, there are just five simple steps to getting your permits pulled, and we’ll lay them all out right here. 

  1. Contact the City: Each city will have its own set of procedures, so start by calling or checking their website for more details. They’ll guide you to the resources you need to get started. 
  2. Complete the Application: Regardless of the differences each city may have, you’ll have to fill out some sort of permitting application. Whether this is by paper or online, be prepared to complete an application. 
  3. Submit the Application: Once you’ve filled in all pertinent information, it’s time to submit the application. If you’re doing this yourself, it may be helpful to have someone look over it for errors prior to submission. 
  4. Wait for Approval: Now the waiting game begins. Most cities will be able to give you a general timeframe for how long approval will take. If you hired a contractor, they’d likely be able to speak from experience about how long the wait times are. 
  5. Permit is Released: If your permit is approved, it will soon be released to you, and your bathroom remodel can begin once it’s in hand. Don’t forget to abide by whatever permit posting rules your city requires!

Why People Remodel Bathrooms Without Permitting

It’s not a great idea to do a complete bathroom remodel without permitting, but it does happen. These three reasons are the common culprits:

  • DIY Movement: As of late, homeowners forego the use of a contractor in favor of the DIY (do it yourself) movement. The thought process is it may take longer, but they’ll save money. While this is sufficient for simple projects, it’s not the way to go for a total bathroom overhaul. Even so, many homeowners will take the project on themselves with the help of friends and family. 
  • Permit Cost: Costs are usually deterrents of many things in a home improvement project, permits being no exception. Many homeowners try to save money by avoiding the permitting process altogether. While it has the potential to save some money, as permits are usually in the hundreds cost-wise, it’s nothing compared to the repercussions of doing the work without permitting. 
  • Project Timeline: Good things take time, but if homeowners aren’t willing to wait to have the job approved via the permitting process, they’ll often take matters into their own hands. Getting the right permits in hand can take a while between the time the paperwork is submitted and then actually approved. For those wanting to see their projects come to life now, they may ditch the permits. 

Risks of Completing a Bathroom Remodel Without a Permit

You may be able to get away with remodeling a bathroom without a permit, but the risks will most certainly catch up with you one way or another. Here are a few of the most common results of unpermitted remodeling. 

  • Penalties: Even after you file for a retroactive permit, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in the clear. Some cities may decide to impose a penalty. The cost of the penalty will depend on your city and what the work was that was done unpermitted. Some projects completed without permitting can cost homeowners hundreds of dollars, easily getting into the thousands if the penalty due is not paid within the timeframe the city puts forth. 

Certain states take unpermitted work more seriously than others, the state of California being one of them. For contractors who are caught working without permits, the consequences can be detrimental. The state licensing board can impose fines up to $5,000 or pull licensing depending on the level of infraction. 

  • Resale Issues: Say you do the work without a permit. Initially, you may think you’re in the clear, no harm done. That thought may quickly change when it comes time to sell your home. Home inspections will likely reveal that permits were not pulled for remodeling. This will affect the sale process in a few ways, the first being appraisal value. The appraiser will not give your home the value that includes the home’s bathroom remodel since it wasn’t done under a permit. 

The second issue this brings about in resale lands squarely on the homebuyer. Homeowners are required to report the unpermitted work in the sale process. Once the unpermitted work is disclosed to prospective buyers, it may scare some away. They’ll have to either buy the home knowing the work wasn’t permitted and apply for the retroactive permit themselves or negotiate for you to do that in the sales agreement prior to closing; either way, it’s a hassle on their end. 

  • Insurance Problems: Insuring your home is vital and, in nearly all cases, easy to do. That is if the home is up to code. Insurance companies are in the business of covering homes that were properly and legally constructed. If you’ve got unpermitted work in your home, you’ll struggle to find coverage. 

Even if you’re able to gain coverage without the insurance company knowing there’s unpermitted work, you’re in trouble if the time comes when you need to make a claim. Once a representative is sent out to assess the damage, they’ll uncover the unpermitted work fairly fast, and you’ll be left to pay the damages. 

  • Faulty Results: We touched on this a little before, but it’s worth detailing! A major risk homeowners face with unpermitted work is a poorly completed project. The permitting process allows the city to help identify faults in your plans you may not see yourself, whether that be structural issues, safety concerns, or the like. Without that safety net of a second pair of eyes, you can end up with a real mess on your hands. 

Homeowners shouldn’t risk ending up with bad results over something as silly as unpermitted work. In the end, the time and money invested in the permit will ensure the work lives up to the overall monetary investment. 

The Process to Remodel a Bathroom – 10 Steps for Look For

There are a lot of components to a bathroom remodel, which can be tough to keep track of when you start exploring the project. That said, when you have a birds-eye view of what goes into the remodeling, it can make the planning process much easier. Take a look at the basic list below for a snapshot of what you’re in for. 

  • Demo and cleanup work of old materials.
  • Electrical, plumbing, and mechanical work.
  • New fixtures, faucets, toilet, vanity, cabinetry, etc.
  • Basic interior finishing materials (drywall, millwork, paint, etc).
  • New tilework and grout in the shower area.
  • New flooring and flooring materials. 
  • Baseboards and trim.

If you’re taking on a full bathroom remodel, it’s likely that all of the elements above will be included in your project. If the scope of your project only involves the aesthetic side of things, much of it will be omitted. Still, knowing what needs to be done and the sequence of how to do it are two different things. Let’s review the key parts of the bathroom remodel process so there are no surprises!  

  1. Planning: Never underestimate the power of planning. The process needs to start with a solid plan for the result to be exactly as expected. Decide on all your wants and needs during this part of the process. 
  2. Hiring: Next, you need to select a contractor. Take your time on this step, giving yourself an opportunity to fully vet prospective companies. An inexperienced contractor will, without a doubt, lead to shoddy work. 
  3. Permitting: Onto the process we’ve been discussing this entire time, obtaining your permitting. If you choose to hire a contractor, they’ll take care of this part for you. If not, refer to the “How to Apply For Permits” section above. 
  4. Demolition: On day one, your contractor and their team will arrive ready to gut the bathroom from head to toe. They’ll remove all the old materials and refinish certain surfaces to prepare for the work ahead. 
  5. Plumbing: During this phase, you’ll see things like a new shower pan being installed and possibly rerouting of plumbing pipes if you’ve chosen to redesign the bathroom layout. 
  6. Electrical: Now, your team can move onto the electrical phase, relocating outlets for appliances and fixtures. They may also need to switch out or add in more circuits and rewire or move vent systems.
  7. Mechanical: All the mechanical work is next, for instance, installing a new exhaust fan. Projects like this need careful attention, as in states like California, these additions must be Energy Star Compliant.
  8. First Inspection: At this point, your project will require its first inspection to review all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. Only after passing this inspection can your project proceed with further renovations. 
  9. Shower Inspection: There’s an additional inspection required here for the shower. Entities will ensure that the installation of the shower pan is waterproofed and properly intact. 
  10. Drywall: When the “guts” of the work are done, you’ll start seeing drywall go up. Depending on the work left to do, you may even see your paint being put on the walls at this point. 
  11. Second Inspection: Things have really come together at this point, but again, before proceeding, your project will undergo its second inspection. Here, the nailing (drywall and tile lath) will be carefully inspected.
  12. Flooring and Tile: Flooring is next up after the walls, accompanied by the baseboards, of course. Any tilework present in shower areas or backsplash accents is now able to be installed. 
  13. Fixtures: Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for! All the fixtures you’ve picked out will now be put into place. This includes everything from bigger items like vanities and tubs to smaller details like towel hooks and cabinet pulls. 
  14.  Final Inspection: At this point, everything is in its rightful place, and you’ve got the bathroom of your dreams in front of you. Not so fast, though! All work needs to be inspected by the proper entities where the permits were issued before you can truly consider this process complete. 


Remodeling your bathroom gives you the unique opportunity to create a space that fits your family’s specific needs. From an array of designs to finishes and luxury additions, there are endless possibilities. The fact is though, not every contractor knows the ins and outs of a remodel, and you need someone you can trust with a project of this size.

How long does it take to get a permit, and how long will the permit last?

As mentioned above, some homeowners really hate the waiting process of securing the proper permitting. Unfortunately, the wait time will vary from state to state and city to city. You can count on it taking at least a few days, sometimes weeks, depending on the type of permit and hope backed up your local office is. 

As far as how long they last, the work usually needs to begin within six months of the date the permit was issued to remain active. After the work begins, your permit should be good for up to a year so long as there is continuous work occurring on the project. 

What if an honest mistake was made and I did not get a permit for my bathroom remodel?

If you’ve chosen to go the DIY route and weren’t aware that permitting was required to do certain aspects of your project, you’re not alone. While some permitting infractions may be harder to reconcile than others, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. You can actually get a permit issued to you after the remodeling work is completed if you forgot it on the front end. 

You’ll want to contact your local entities first and explain your situation. Your city will be able to direct you to the proper paperwork in order to file what’s called a retroactive permit. This permit can be issued once the initial paperwork and designs are approved by the city, and then you can go through inspections and other city requirements as needed to eventually close the permit. 

Can I finance my bathroom remodel?

Oftentimes, permits are avoided due to cost, so it’s natural for homeowners to wonder how they’re going to fund their entire remodel, much less the permitting. Luckily, financing doesn’t have to be a deterrent for your remodel, there are enough financing options available if cash isn’t an option. 

HELOCs, or home equity lines of credit, are a financing favorite for home remodels as they offer lower interest rates without closing costs. You could also utilize a renovation loan which is helpful for those who may have a lower credit score or need to apply for a smaller down payment. 

In some states, there are government programs and grants that may apply to your particular situation. They’re often harder to obtain but absolutely worth it if you can meet all of their requirements. 

What’s the average cost to remodel a bathroom?

Well, that’s a bit of a loaded question. The cost of a bathroom remodel hinges on the size and finish level, which means the costs will widely vary. Most homeowners find it easiest to base costs on their bathroom size; with that in mind, there are some general figures below that you can follow to get an idea of where your project may fall monetarily. 

Half baths, meaning 1 to 2 fixtures, toilet, sink, and vanity, run between $8,000 to $10,000. Full bathrooms, meaning 3 to 4 fixtures, toilet sink, small to midsize vanity, and a shower or tub run between $25000 to $30,000. Last, a primary bathroom, meaning 4 to 5 fixtures, toilet, dual sinks, dual vanities, tub and/or walk-in shower, will average between $50,000 to $80,000.

Signs Your Bathroom Needs Remodeling

Aesthetics aside, there’s some tell tale signs that your bathroom is probably in need of a remodel. Take a look at the list below and if your bathroom suffers from several of these issues, it’s time to start planning for updates. 

  • Cracked tilework: In the shower, on the floor, or the walls it can be dangerous. 
  • Stained or cracked tub: Could cause leaks or injury if its created sharp surfaces.
  • Peeling paint: Excess moisture can cause peeling and damage to walls. 
  • Leaking fixtures: Leaking may cause water damage to surrounding surfaces.
  • Rusty fixtures: A sign of serious wear and tear that’s not pleasing to the eye.
  • Mold stains: Mold spores are likely still present if stains won’t go away. 
  • Safety hazards: Poor lighting, high tub threshold, and no grab bars are red flags.
  • Plumbing issues: Corrosion of old piping could cause back ups or leaks. 
  • Electrical issues: New wiring decreases fire risk and offers more power. 
  • Uneven or damaged flooring: Slip and falls are common in bathrooms, even more so if you have ignored flooring issues. 

Benefits of a Bathroom Remodel in Your Los Angeles Home

The benefits of a bathroom remodel go far beyond the obvious of improved aesthetics. There’s plenty of benefits that’ll have you ready to get your remodel started ASAP!

  • ROI: The ROI, or return on investment, is how much you’ll gain in profit from your bathroom remodel when it comes time to sell. Remodeled bathrooms are a highlight of any home on the market; If you’re smart with the re-design and materials used, you’ll stand to gain a pretty penny on the other end. 
  • Efficiency: Older toilets, shower heads, and faucets don’t just pose an aesthetic problem but also an efficient one. They have a tendency to use more water and energy which can take a toll on your wallet and the environment. Replacing all main facets of your bathroom in the remodeling process stands to fix this issue. 
  • Functionality: Many bathrooms suffer from a lack of functionality whether that’s in the form of wasted space, lack of storage, or poor design. An amazing advantage of bathroom remodels is the ability to create a layout that remedies all three of those problems while making it completely customized to your style. 
  • Safety: Bathrooms have their fair share of hazards, especially when outdated. Old flooring, toilets, or pipes can cause leaks which lead to dangerous mold. Outdated tubs with high siding to step over are known to cause terrible falls. Updating is a benefit that helps mitigate these common risks. 

6 Factors to Consider in Your Bathroom Remodel

Before you get started on your bathroom remodel, you’ll want to consider some factors that will greatly affect not only the finished product but the total cost. Keep these in mind throughout the planning process to ensure there’s no surprises in the end. 

  1. Materials: Choosing the materials for a remodel is arguably the most fun part of the project. Selecting each and every color, texture, and wood grain allows you to create a bathroom that meets even the most intricate of visions. Even so, the most budget friendly materials will add up. Not to mention, some materials come at a much higher cost than others. For example, marble looks great in any bathroom but it’s likely to eat up a lot of your material budget. Likewise, you’ll have to prioritize materials like tubs, cabinetry, vanities, fixtures and the like; Especially if your project is a budget remodel. 
  1. Scheduling: Start thinking about a timeframe when this project is actually feasible for you and your family. Picking a slower season will make the process a lot less stressful for all involved. Also, have in mind your expectations and timeline for the bathroom remodel and bring that to your contractor when you’re interviewing them. This gives them an idea of what you’re looking for and allows them to tell you what’s realistic based upon the scope of the work. 
  1. Scope: Speaking of the scope of the work, you’ll need to think in depth about all aspects of your bathroom renovation. Begin to contemplate the design and materials. Are you wanting to move any walls to create more square footage? Will you switch out the tub? What fixtures will you install? From top to bottom, make a to-do list. If you’re unsure where to start, it’s best to consult your contractor. They will likely have a checklist and 3D software to help you make your final decisions on everything from wall color to flooring. 
  1. Fee Structure: Fees pertaining to specific labor needs, the contractor, timeline overages and the like can send any well budgeted remodel into a tailspin. Structura Remodeling takes the guesswork out of the equation up front, utilizing a one lump sum contract price that puts others to shame. Unlike other contractors, they’re not looking to surprise you with fees or nickel and dime you when the moment presents itself. Their lump sum price includes the use of subcontractors, designers, project managers, labor, and rough materials with complete transparency on total costs. 

Other contractors may have fees built into their contractor for project delays as well; Not so with Structura! If a delay causes them to go over the approximate timeline given for the project, there’s no fee. In fact, they pride themselves on being proactive in the pre-construction phase to mitigate this possibility altogether. By prepping material lists, requesting the homeowners selections, and pre-purchasing materials they’re able to avoid unnecessary delays that many other contractors would try to turn into a pay day. 

  1. Budget: Finally, the budget is a key factor to consider, albeit not the most fun one. Your budget is going to be the driving force behind everything that happens in your bathroom remodel. What contractor you can afford, the type of materials, the scope of the project, literally everything! Know how much you can realistically spend on the project and from there, you can create a plan. 
  1. Los Angeles Trends: When you remodel, it’s important to know what’s going on in your neighborhood with regard to trends. If you plan to stay in your house for good, then using any style and material you like is probably a safe bet. However, if it’s not your forever home and you plan to sell within the next five to ten years, it’s crucial to think ahead. 

Find out what’s popular, what might attract most people, even aiming for materials that have always been timeless. That way, when you go sell your home your property has far more appeal. If you’re not sure what’s on trend in the Los Angeles area, your contractor can help! After all, they’re the ones involved in local building and remodeling. They can help direct you to the designs and styles that will stay on trend for years to come.

Mid-Range Bathroom Remodel – $25,000 to $30,000

With a more flexible renovation budget, you can really take things to the next level with a mid-range bathroom remodel. The average estimate for a mid-range bathroom remodel is approximately $25,000 to $30,000. Some of the differences you’ll see with a renovation at this price point are new, upgraded cabinetry, shower fixtures, and an expanded variety of counter and flooring materials.

For instance, the cost of certain tiles and stones for counters, flooring, and showers may now be well within reach.

These upgraded selections alone open up new design possibilities, especially when considering your bathroom’s overall flow and style.

You can increase the square footage of your bathroom, leaving behind the cramped space and impractical design. 

With this new square footage you’ll be able to include both a stand-up shower and a soaking tub. Aside from the obvious material upgrades in stones, marbles and the like, you’ll get to hone in on the luxuries of high end fixtures, plumbing, and technology. Customize your shower with light, sound, and temperature settings programmable by you. 

Add a rain shower with steam functions and mood lighting for a home spa experience.

Are permits needed to remodel a bathroom in the Los Angeles area?

Permits can be tricky seeing as they vary from city to city based on local requirements. Even so, if you’re doing a complete bathroom overhaul you can expect to need a permit. Especially if you’re moving walls or doing something to the structural integrity of the home. 

Some contractors like to say if you have to open up any part of the wall, you probably need a permit. Regardless, this is where your contractor comes in handy. They know all the ins and outs of permitting, so you can rest assured your project will be up to all appropriate standards. 

Can I finance my bathroom remodel?

Renovating a bathroom can be expensive but there’s plenty of financing options if you don’t have the cash on hand. Renovation loans are also fairly common; They offer fair requirements like low credit score and small down payments, so they’re a viable choice. 

HELOCs or a home equity line of credit are also a great financing option for several reasons, no closing costs and lower interest rates being among a few. Government programs are another option. Though a little harder to navigate, they’re worth the hassle if you meet the loan requirements. 

What’s the sequence for remodeling a bathroom?

After hiring your contractor and planning everything, you may be wondering how things progress from there. There’s a general sequence of events that happen during a bathroom remodel, the first being the demolition process. Your team will start gutting the bathroom, removing all old materials to make way for the new. 

Next up after that is the plumbing. During this phase you may see a new shower pan installed or rerouting of plumbing pipes if you’re changing the bathroom’s layout. From there your team will start on electrical needs. Switching out circuits, moving vent fans, relocation of outlets, things of that nature. 

Afterward, you’ll really start seeing things take shape as drywall and paint go up and tile can start being installed. Now it’s time to bring in the bigger pieces like fixtures, tubs, vanities and eventually the toilet. 

How can I prepare my bathroom for remodel?

First things first, brainstorm your goals. Have an idea of the style and overall outcomes you’re looking for. This will help out a lot when it comes time to start interviewing contractors. You’ll be prepared to give them a snapshot of what you’re looking for while also determining if their timeline, skill level, and fee fit your needs. 

Once you’ve decided on a contractor and agreed on a start date, it’s time for you to prep the space for work. Move everything out of the bathroom to avoid delays on the start date. Moveable furnishings, shower curtains, toiletries, bath mats, get it all out of the way. Don’t forget to clean out spaces inside of the cabinets or drawers as well.  

Is there part of a bathroom remodel that’s most expensive?

There’s many opinions on which part of a bathroom remodel ends up being most expensive. Most would say labor, but the cost of labor is just the cost of getting things done right, not really an aspect of the actual remodel process. That said, plumbing turns out to be one of the more expensive parts of a bathroom remodel. 

Fitting pipes and handling the main waste line or even moving it means a lot of work for the plumber and contractor alike. Rearranging the layout also comes at a high cost if you’re having to move water sources, walls, and other permanent fixtures.

8 Distinct Shower Ceiling Ideas for Your Bathroom That Won’t Go Unnoticed

8 Distinct Shower Ceiling Ideas for Your Bathroom That Won’t Go Unnoticed

November 29, 2022

Shower ceilings usually don’t make it on the shortlist of priorities when you’re renovating a bathroom. With so many different accents that draw focus from flooring to fixtures, it makes sense that most people wouldn’t give the ceiling a second thought. In the end though, it’d be a lost opportunity to ignore the power of this blank canvas. 

A pattern, color, or texture can add character to your bathroom ceiling that once seen, can’t go unnoticed. With no shortage of materials and designs to choose from, there’s something to match every personal aesthetic. If you’re still not convinced, the shower ceiling ideas below are likely to change your mind! Take a look and see how a simple ceiling change can transform your shower into something truly special.

1. Wood Panels

It’s no secret that the modern farmhouse style has taken over the interior design world in recent years. With that, it’s brought back wood paneling throughout homes, ceilings being no exception. Offering a natural and warm feel, wood is one of the best shower ceiling ideas for a rustic style. The fact that you can choose from a plethora of wood species also makes way for color and texture choices; Along with a range of pricing to fit different project budgets. 

It’s important to remember that natural wood is susceptible to certain risks, water damage being one of them. Rot and warping are key damages to look out for. Proper sealing of materials will mitigate long term damage but upkeep is something to consider. Damaged pieces of natural wood are also harder to repair, unlike other options that allow you to trade out a piece that will have the exact same color and texture. 

2. Stone

Stone shower ceilings are where beauty and durability collide! Stone comes in plenty of colors and textures, each with an ease of cleaning that’s a major draw to many. Coming in larger sheets and cuts, the amount of grouting is generally much less than that of a tile job. If all of that wasn’t enough, the increase in home value puts stone over the top. Due to its value alone, a stone shower ceiling stands to hike up that resale price. 

Unfortunately for some, this level of durability comes at a cost. Stone isn’t cheap and while it does come in different grades of cost, it’s not in everyone’s price range. Even though its daily maintenance is easy, the same can’t be said for overall maintenance. Depending upon your stone selection, you’ll have to be on top of resealing it as well. 

3. Styrofoam

A cheaper alternative on the rise, styrofoam shower ceilings (tiles in specific) have some surprisingly enticing qualities. They act as a great insulator which is particularly helpful in the hottest and coldest months. Not only do they look authentic, they come in any style you could imagine, colors too. They’re also very easy to replace should one become damaged. Even though it’s not made to be waterproof, you can waterproof it via a sealant or resin for long lasting protection.

The number one issue you’ll find with this material is its fragility. Styrofoam isn’t known to be durable but this may not be as much of a concern as the shower ceiling isn’t a surface that’s physically used. It does also tend to stain more easily than other materials available. Again, it might not be as much of a concern since it’s on the ceiling but it’s a consideration nonetheless. 

4. Paint

If you’re on a tight budget but still looking for that wow factor for your shower ceiling, paint is the best choice for you. Bold color selections like that above create an unmatched contrast for a designer look at a price anyone can afford. Paint doesn’t just limit you to color though; You can also have patterns via stencils that produce the illusion of other materials. 

Paint is also a low maintenance option that’s extremely easy to touch up when need be. Your main concern with paint is going to be building up enough of a barrier to keep moisture out. It never hurts to start with a primer as it stops the peeling process and helps the paint to bond to the surface. A higher sheen will also prevent water intrusion, though it may be a shinier finish than many prefer. 

5. Beams

Shower ceiling beams are an excellent addition to your bathroom’s architecture, often used to put a spotlight on high ceilings; They can also make a smaller room appear larger. You’re not bound by style or price with beam ceiling accents either! They come in different materials like wood, metal, faux wood and more, offering limitless style options. It’s because of this that the price ranges, sometimes at a lower cost than many think.

Depending on the material chosen, you can run into some issues. As with wood panels, genuine wood beams can become damaged if they’re not sealed and maintained correctly. For wood and metal beams, weight is also a concern, especially as it relates to installation. Since these beams are usually decorative, they offer little to no support to the home’s structure; This makes that extra weight something to consider. 

6. Tile

Lately, it’s become far more common to see tile used on the shower ceiling. It makes sense when the rest of the shower is tile too, creating a cohesive end result like the one pictured above. Tile does a great job at repelling moisture and its overall durability is one of its most desirable characteristics. It’s available in many colors and is often used to construct a custom appearance with patterns like herringbone, chevron, and the like.

The main complaint with tile is keeping the grout clean. Depending on the design, you could end up with lots of grout lines that are known to harbor mildew. Also, while tile isn’t the most expensive option on this list, it’s also not the cheapest. Tiling materials add up quickly when you’re covering the entire shower top to bottom. It can also be hard to install tile at the angle required of a shower ceiling project. 

7. Metal

Naturally impervious to water intrusion and mold, the use of metal for shower ceilings is an extremely functional option. They’re also fire and warp resistant, needing very little maintenance, perfect for the busy homeowner. You can use corrugated metal sheets as pictured above or even decorative metal ceiling tiles that come in different patterns and types like tin, copper and more. From rustic to modern, metal can fit the bill!

You’d be hard pressed to find many cons when it comes to metal shower ceilings. There are a few to note though. First, while they’re very durable, if you happen to dent certain types of metals it may not be an easy replacement; Especially for materials used in sheet form like the picture seen above. Metal can also be a pricey choice depending on which variety you like. 

8. Skylight

Hands down the most luxurious of shower ceiling ideas, a shower skylight ceiling. There’s nothing quite like taking in the blue sky and sunlight directly from above in your very own shower. Not to mention, it takes care of the ventilation issue many bathrooms have. A functional shower skylight allows its user to open the hatch before, during or after; Properly ventilating the space and mitigating excess moisture causing damage. 

All good things have their drawbacks though, roof leaks being a main one for shower skylights. With so many gaps and crevices in the mechanism itself, it’s easy to see why. Heat loss in the cooler months can also make the shower space too brisk. Plastic encasements may become more brittle over time as well, also taking on more sun damage than that of a metal framed one.  


While unique shower ceiling ideas might not be the first thing you think of when you remodel, it’d be an amazing focal point to polish off any bathroom. From more simple shower ceiling ideas like a bold color to a detailed install like tile, there’s a range of options each with their own eye-catching attributes.

For shower ceiling ideas, what about using peel and stick materials?

Peel and stick materials have become more common lately due to their ease of use and affordability. It’s easy to imagine how they’d hold up on other surfaces but what about shower ceilings? Believe it or not, they’re reported to do just fine! Backed with a sticky adhesion that meshes with many surfaces, this material does need time to cure. 

Many recommend allowing a 24 to 48 hour cure time before using the shower; This keeps any moisture from setting in, allowing for a rock solid grip. Peel and stick materials also come in endless textures, colors, and styles. Whatever your style, peel and stick materials make the shortlist of bathroom ceiling ideas where you’re sure to find a fit. 

If the material used needs painting, what paint is best?

Whether you go for a bold color or an unfinished material in need of paint, it’s important to know not all paints are created equal. For starters, you’ll want to use a latex based paint on your shower ceiling. Its durable and water-resistant properties will help prevent mold and mildew growth. 

It’s also best to use a paint with a satin or semi-gloss finish. Some may argue that these finishes appear too shiny, preferring an eggshell finish instead. Even so, it’s crucial to keep in mind that the shinier finishes are easier to clean and ward off moisture. 

Is every material listed for shower ceiling ideas made waterproof?

They’re all waterproof in their own respect. Certain materials like metal and glass are naturally waterproof as they’re non-porous materials. While other materials like PVC and fiberglass based tiles, paneling, and the like aren’t innately waterproof, they’re made to be; Using waterproof components in the manufacturing process, they become a reliable, waterproof material for shower ceiling use. 

Despite the fact that all of these come with waterproof properties, there’s a vital component that cannot go forgotten and that’s ventilation. No matter how waterproof your materials are, it won’t matter without proper ventilation. Key components to this include practices as simple as utilizing an exhaust fan or keeping the bathroom door open. 

Does a ceiling shower head affect which shower ceiling materials can be used?

Deciding on a ceiling shower head doesn’t necessarily knock out certain shower ceiling materials in an existing shower, but it’s likely to make certain choices harder to install. For instance, an install coupled with a bold paint is simple. Any potential damages made to existing pigment can be fixed with the stroke of a brush; Or paint can easily be applied around the shower head flange after installation if it’s a new project.  

It’s not so easy with materials like tile though. When you cut the proper holes for existing tile you run the risk of cracking surrounding tiles. With a new project, several small, precise cuts will need to be made for a perfect fit. Plumbing is also a serious consideration when choosing a ceiling shower head. It’s likely piping will have to be moved or replaced in order to achieve the ceiling shower head look.

In short, a ceiling shower head doesn’t prevent certain shower ceiling materials from being used, but some materials will be far easier than others to work with.

Bathtub to Shower Conversion: 5 Inspired Ideas for Your Bathroom Remodel

Bathtub to Shower Conversion: 5 Inspired Ideas for Your Bathroom Remodel

October 7, 2022

A bathtub to shower conversion has the power to transform your bathroom. Offering a space-saving aspect, both real and perceived, it can open up even the smallest of bathrooms. Not to mention a seamless look with safety and maintenance features to boot, it’s a game changer. So if you’re thinking of making the switch and need some inspiration for the final product, you’re in the right place!

Why make the bathtub to shower conversion?

You may be wondering if a bathtub to shower conversion is worth it. After all, it’s no small undertaking, especially when most homeowners opt to do a complete renovation alongside a tub to shower conversion. Even so, more than enough reasons make this project a worthy investment. Check out the five significant advantages below that are sure to prove that bath to shower conversions are worthwhile.

  • Safety: For starters, showers are generally safer than bathtubs. They’re also easier to get in and out of, especially for the elderly. The ability to make a short step in and out causes fewer accidental falls than stepping over the lip of a tub. Also, the addition of safety bars, shower seats, and wheelchair accessibility make them an option that grows with you. 
  • Conservation: It’s no secret that tubs take a large amount of water to fill. Along with the amount is the fill time. Between the water, energy, and time to fill the tub, you’ve left quite a footprint. That quickly makes the bathtub to shower conversion the more environmentally friendly choice. 
  • Space: Tubs take up more of the bathroom while offering less usable bathing space. Showers can create more expansive walking space, a more open feel, and a far larger bathing area. You’ll be shocked at how much more space a conversion provides, even with a bigger shower install. 
  • Health: While it’s true baths have some excellent health benefits, and it’s not the best option for overall skin health. Baths can strip your skin of the natural, protective oils it produces. With light pressure, showers provide necessary hygiene without soaking off essential skin nutrients. 
  • Style: Last but not least, removing a tub gives a bathroom an attractive, modern feel. Gone are the days of garden tubs and shower, tub combinations. A sizable shower is most desirable and stylish. 

All things considered, showers have some serious advantages over the traditional bathtub. Still not convinced? Maybe these tub to shower conversion before and after photos will do the trick! Ready to take your builder-grade bathroom to a customized oasis? Check out our finished projects to help get you started with tub to shower conversion ideas. Let’s jump right in!

  1. Tub to Rolling Frameless Shower

A rolling frameless door is an excellent solution for making an update in a small space. The door’s ability to roll on a mounted track above means no swinging door taking up valuable space. Not only is it functional, but it’s also a modern touch with plenty of styles. For example, in the bathtub to shower conversion above, the elimination of the tub created more space around the commode and a larger bathing area altogether. 

This bathroom remodel to shower shows the beauty of a frameless door system. The beautiful patterned tile work can shine without a curtain or frame getting in its way. A rich, earthy color scheme incorporated throughout makes for a warm and cohesive finished product.

  1. Tub to Hinged Frameless Shower 

Though the hinged system forces the door to swing into the bathroom, it’s well worth the conversion. While a frameless transformation is featured in the bathroom above, there’s also a framed option for hinged systems. Likewise, hinged doors can function as a single door, as seen in the bathtub to shower conversion above, or a dual system with hinges on both sides. No matter your choice, hinged systems are far easier to move in and out than a tub setup. 

In this bathtub converted to walk in shower, the black fixtures bring the bathroom up to speed, flowing with the other dark touches in the shower’s tile work. An even split of light and dark, the walls, countertops, and wood additions even out the palette leaving a fresh and sleek design.

  1. Tub to Semi-Frameless Shower 

Semi-frameless enclosures are the best of both worlds. You can rest assured of its integrity by providing extra stability on the framed edges. Simultaneously, leaving other edges with the much-desired clean glass corners gives your shower a seamless finish. The semi-frameless shower stall above makes use of the space more efficiently, offering double the bathing space without the clunky tub.

In terms of style, this bathtub remodel to shower takes a significant turn from basic to luxurious. Dark neutrals are traded for cool tones coupled with varied wood grains that, combined, make for an unbelievable overhaul. 

  1. Tub to Pivot Frameless Shower 

Often confused with hinged doors, pivot doors have their unique advantage. Pivot doors can swing both in and out, providing options based on your bathroom configuration. In addition, the replacement of the tub with a step-up shower creates a much safer bathing environment as well. Given that the tub above posed even more dangers as it included an enclosure, this bathtub to shower conversion has dramatically reduced the risk of accidents. 

Proof that you don’t have to sacrifice style for safety, this bathtub converted to walk in shower boasts beautiful marble shower walls and flooring. Accompanied by upgraded fixtures like the rainshower head and built-in storage, it’s a significant step up from the tub it once was. 

  1. Tub Enclosure to Swinging Frameless Tub

While this bathtub to shower remodel above doesn’t eliminate the tub completely, it converts it into a much more user-friendly space. This is a viable option if you’re not ready to part ways with your tub but still want a modern, updated look. The frameless hinged door eliminates the hazards of an old enclosure while still giving its users whichever bathing method they prefer. 

Though this wasn’t a complete bathtub to shower conversion as the tub wasn’t fully converted, it was swapped out for a deeper, more contemporary model. Adding a colorful, full wall tile paired with solid neutrals offers a welcomed contrast with a balanced simplicity.


Is a bathtub to shower conversion bad for resale value?

Contrary to what you may hear, a bathtub to shower conversion does not affect a home’s resale value. If anything, it’s quite the opposite! A well-thought-out tub remodel can increase the value of a home, creating an irresistible appeal to potential buyers. There’s only one rule to keep in mind regarding the resale value and tub conversions, and that’s the number of tubs in the home. Removing the only tub in a home might decrease home value, so it’s best to consider this before beginning a bathroom remodel. 

How long does a bathtub to shower conversion take?

The timeline for a bath to shower conversions varies. Each project requires a different scope of work depending on the scale of the client’s remodel. Even a simple tub conversion involves demo work, tiling, plumbing, and the like. That said, the tub to shower conversion alone averages 12 to 16 days. 

Why aren’t framed shower doors as popular as they used to be?

Framed shower doors used to be the updated option; however, they’re not a first (or even second) choice nowadays. With modern styles leaning toward more sleek and minimal designs, homeowners don’t want the extra trimming and metal pieces a framed system requires. Clean lines are in, meaning frameless showers take the top spot.

After the conversion, how do I maintain my shower? 

After a bathtub to shower conversion, proper maintenance is crucial to keeping your shower looking good as new. Weekly cleaning will protect against grime, mold, and hard water stains. Depending on your design, the grout may also play a significant role in your shower’s maintenance. Ensuring your grout is re-sealed correctly every 6 months will prevent major repairs in the future. Also, don’t forget your fixtures. Shower heads often need cleaning to function properly, as do handles, bars, and the like. They should also be checked for leaks or dripping.


A bathtub to shower conversion will take your bathroom to the next level. Offering many advantages that go beyond just the aesthetics, it makes the switch an easy choice. No matter your style, there’s a bathtub to shower remodel to meet your needs. Likewise, endless opportunities for customization ensure your finished product will be exactly what you envisioned.

1) Bathroom Remodel in Beverly Hills, CA

Another example of bathroom renovations took place in a Beverly Hills apartment. Sticking to a $22K budget, a gray, visually coarse porcelain tile along the floor and vanity wall was installed. Replacing the sink with a new vanity for a raised basin sink, the team was able to achieve a much more modern look.As a last touch, the team installed a larger mirrored medicine cabinet, glass shower door, slim toilet, brushed nickel fixtures, and a light above the vanity.

2) Bathroom Remodel Los Angeles, CA

To modernize a master bath, the budget was $19k. To open up the space, the standing shower was removed and an open shower stall fitted with a glass door was installed. The beige vanity was removed and replaced it with a customized wooden table fitted with a marble countertop. To provide more storage, two medicine cabinets were installed side by side. The bathroom renovations were finished with the installation of a new toilet and fixtures for functionality and black hexagon tile floor with white floor-to-ceiling subway tile.

3) Bathroom Remodel in Santa Monica, CA

A bathroom remodel using stained limestone for a budget of $32k. To create more storage space, a custom vanity with unique drawer configurations was installed. This decrease visual clutter by hiding a small trash can. A marble tile was picked with a cube effect for the floor and beveled subway tile lined the walls. Without replacing the tub or sink, the renovation was completed with a new sink, countertop and lighting fixture. Working within the budget, the team was able to maximize the space and accomplish a neat, uncluttered bathroom style.

4) Bathroom Remodel in Westminster, CA

Within a 20k budget, a new bathroom renovation in Westminster started with removing theold tile and carpet. The cramped shower with a leaky door was removed. The team put a door in to separate the bathroom and bedroom where there wasn’t one before. A larger shower with a glass door, subway tile, and bench were installed. The team then replaced the countertops with marble and finished off the details of the bathroom with gold accents and a white, gray, slate, and blue color palette.

Here are Some Tips for Inexpensive Ways to Upgrade your Bathroom:

1) Paint Your Bathroom

A new coat of paint can do wonders in making a visual difference in your bathroom remodel. Whether you are redoing the current paint in a similar shade, or picking an accent color to tie in details of your bathroom, make sure to use a mildew-resistant formula to protect your walls from the humidity of the bath or shower.

2) Update Hardware

Does your bathroom have outdated hardware that doesn’t match the aesthetic you’re going for? A great way to update the look of your bathroom is to swap out your drawer pulls to bar pulls, metal knobs, or even colorful ceramic knobs to match your decor.

3) Install Updated Lighting

Improve the look of your bathroom by swapping out old lighting fixtures with ones that better light up the room, and maybe even line the vanity mirror.

4) Update the Tub Deck

The top 5 Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for 2022

The top 5 Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for 2022

Are you planning for a bathroom remodel in 2022? Look for the most up-to-date, on-point, and upscale bathroom remodeling ideas.  Reaching out to the top design teams in Los Angeles, browsing the magazines, spending time on the popular home remodel and design websites, and watching the home remodeling shows are fun ways to collect creative and innovative bathroom remodeling ideas.

Before you start working with your contractor, it is essential to understand what design ideas are “must-haves” for you and how they will impact your budget.  Some of the design choices we share with you add great contemporary style and functionality and will not blow up your budget. Choosing innovative technology and green products may cost more upfront but save you money in the long run.

By 2022 we continue to see even more diversity in materials.  Reclaimed wood, stone, and natural features are even more popular this year.  You can create that outdoor spa feeling by bringing more nature and light into the bathroom. Some designers are creating a Japanese contemporary hybrid design focusing on nature and simplicity.

The contemporary industrial metal design esthetic focuses on updated bathroom technology while offering a high-end design and a simplified uncluttered space.

Have you thought of using a “wet room” approach?   In a wet room, you do not have to compartmentalize the wet areas. The tub, sink, and shower can all be within the same space, so you don’t have to build a separate shower area.  This style of the bathroom has a very open feel and is very easy to keep clean.

Another trend for 2022 is intricate tile designs.  They can be nostalgic and bring back the past’s color palette like baby blue and pink or all white. White is always in style. Using a variety of textures and tile designs can level up the wow factor.  If you get bored, then change your accessories and have an entirely new look.


  • Oversized tiles- Oversized tiles have overtaken the tiny mosaic tile frenzy this season. The selection of colors, textures, and designs is phenomenal. There are tile selections that even look like wood.  You can also go with a monochromatic look, creating a very edgy and modern feel for your bathroom remodel—the bonus of using larger tiles and less grout to keep clean.
  • Smart toilets– When the Covid Pandemic hit, there was a run on toilet paper. When people couldn’t find toilet paper, they started buying up all the bidets in stock.  This winter, the forecast is the same. Stores are already limiting the amount of toilet paper you can purchase.As part of your bathroom remodeling ideas, skip the bidet and go right to the Smart Toilet. Have all the benefits in one unit. Besides the  bidet feature, your smart toilets can have a self-closing lid, touch-free flushing, heated seat, and be self-cleaning. Now that is a smart idea!!!!
  • Dramatic stone countertops- most people, when undergoing a bathroom remodel, choose quartz for their countertops. And there are several great reasons why. Quartz is very durable, scratchproof, and creates an elegant finish .If you are looking for high drama and a unique finish, there are several other options. For high-end bathrooms, you can’t go wrong with Carrera Marble.  Just stunning, If you don’t mind a bit more maintenance, then Onyx is another attractive choice.  Elegant and timeless. Soapstone is also a popular choice that requires regular maintenance.
  • Modern Sinks and Taps– We have been seeing them in restaurants for years. More and more, they are showing up in home bathroom remodeling ideas. These basins, with their unique shapes, can be made from a variety of materials. Created from Metals, Ceramics, Stone, or Glass, many look like works of art.   The taps are part of the sink design.  You can choose wall-mounted faucets or traditional ones. Now there are automatic faucets for home use as well.
  • Floating vanities- To go along with the contemporary design of your new Floating vanities are fixtures that appear to “float” because they are mounted to the wall and do not sit on the floor at all. This modern design will make any bathroom feel more open and lighter.   Floating vanities come in various lengths and materials, including wood finishes or a modern gloss design. The design provides maximum counter space in either single or double sink options.  If you are considering a floating vanity, remember to find out the weight limit and be sure to get it professionally installed.

As you continue to explore your options, spend some time investigating the bathroom fixture showrooms for inspiration. Also, speak to neighbors and local realtors about what’s hot in bathroom remodeling ideas and what’s selling in your area. A bathroom renovation is also an investment in your home.  When it’s time to sell, your bathroom renovation will be a key selling feature and make your home highly desirable. Buyers expect an updated bathroom and  you will appreciate the return on investment.

White, ebony, and grey are the most popular bathroom vanity colors. If you want to make your bathroom look more spacious, choose a bright white vanity. Open bottom vanities are trending now. They give the bathroom a spa-like look, great towel storage, or space for individual baskets of toiletries.

Bring Back the Dressing Table/Vanity

Problem-You have a house full of teens all trying to get dressed and out at the same time. Are they lined up at the mirror fighting over the hairdryer and trying to get their make-up done?

Solution – Take that traffic out of the bathroom and back into their rooms. Build a make-up station into a closet or buy a separate vanity with mirror and storage draws so your teens can get ready while freeing up necessary bathroom time. An added bonus is that they have additional storage space and hopefully can keep their rooms tidy.

Enclose Your Toilet

One of the simplest ways to increase the workability of your bathroom is by building an enclosure for your toilet. By closing off the toilet, other people can come and go as needed. Separating the toilet will double your bathroom efficiency schedule when trying to move your crew out in the morning.

If you are remodeling your toilet area, consider a wall-mounted toilet. A standard toilet is 14 to 15 inches high from the finished floor to the top of the bowl (excluding the fold-down seat). Consider a higher measurement of 16 to 18 inches for your wall-mounted toilet if you plan on aging into your golden years.

Shower Privacy.

Glass-enclosed shower stalls continue to be a prevalent trend. They give the bathroom a very spacious and spa-like look. They may not be efficient for big families. The see-through glass offers no privacy and limits the use of the bathroom when someone is showering. It may not be as sexy, but in terms of functionality, you would be better off choosing a traditional shower/tub combo with an opaque curtain instead.

If you consider replacing your shower with a shower/ tub combo, investigate the biggest tub option for your bathroom space. If you can install an oversized tub, you can bathe multiple children simultaneously and then enjoy some grown-up bath time later on. Maybe you can reclaim some of that spa experience!

Create a Storage Strategy

Storage is the key to staying organized. It is so important when you are planning a bathroom remodel to have a storage strategy. Add as much storage as possible. Here are some tips from the pros on adding additional storage for your brood and being creative in the process. Consult with your bathroom remodeling contractor in Los Angeles for some great suggestions.

  • Add wall-mounted cabinets- don’t sacrifice floor space and double your storage.
  • Use awkward spaces – If you have unused nooks, open the wall and add floating shelves. Consult with your bathroom remodeling contractor to find creative ways to use the space.
  • Assign specific color storage boxes for each member of the family. Make the bathroom easy to organize, and there will be no excuses for the kids not picking up after themselves.
  • Use a ladder rack for towel storage. Ladders don’t take up much room and add an architectural look to the bathroom.
  • Hanging bar- Hang a combination of storage baskets, towels, and your hairdryer for a quirky and practical look.
  • Install a medicine cabinet- they are convenient and much more modern these days.
  • Tall, narrow cabinets for practical storage that doesn’t take up necessary space

Choose the Right Surfaces for Maximum Wear

It is crucial to choose suitable materials for a high traffic area and rate high for durability. You want surfaces that are easy to maintain and that are easy to wipe clean. If you are on a budget, the best choice is a one-piece laminate surround shower tub combo. To create a more upscale look, choose a tile with epoxy grout.

Flooring should be vinyl or laminate for minimal wear and tear. There are so many beautiful choices with vinyl these days. For a higher-end finish, choose a tile that doesn’t have a high gloss finish. Bathroom safety is important to consider.

Create a Better Bathroom Traffic Flow.

Sometimes the bathroom floor plan is to blame for functionality issues. Speak with your bathroom remodeling contractor in Los Angeles about redesigning the traffic flow in your bathroom. Sometimes repositioning the toilet, sink, and shower can give you much more needed floor space.

Save Time and Go Low Maintenance

The time we have with our families is precious. Who wants to spend valuable time cleaning the bathroom? If time, functionality, and durability are important to you, choose top-end acrylic bathroom furnishings. Acrylic s resist mold, prevent mildew, and don’t need grout. Simple to clean and maintain. Will stand up to your extensive family needs.

The final strategy is patience. Your children will eventually grow up, leave home, and leave the bathroom to you 😊!!!

How to choose between a walk-in shower vs. tub

How to choose between a walk-in shower vs. tub


It’s finally time to start planning your bathroom remodel. The number one question people have is how do I choose between a new walk-in shower vs. tub? There are many ways to answer this question.

Let’s get into the issues between a walk-in shower vs. tub:

  • Is this your forever home? – If you are planning to age in place, then you need to consider your safety first. Safety is your number one priority. Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall. According to the National Council on Aging, one in four Americans over 65 falls each year. Up to 80 % of falls of people sixty-five or older occur in the bathroom.
  • Most caregivers and facilities agree that a walk-in shower with a non-slip mat, a shower seat, safety bars, and a handheld shower is key to preventing falls. They are also more accessible for people in wheelchairs.
  • If you have a young family, you will probably want one bathroom with a tub. If your second bathroom has a tub, you can preserve that tub for the kids. Then you are free to create the master bathroom of your dreams. If you always wanted a luxurious walk-in shower, then go for it. When you go to sell, all your bases are covered.

How Much Space Do You Have?

The average bathroom is 40 square feet, and a standard tub takes up 13- 15 square feet. That doesn’t leave a generous amount of open floor space. If you want to create a relaxing, spa-like environment, then preserve as much space as possible for amenities such as a double sink and extra storage space.

If you have a smaller bathroom, around 32 square feet, you may want to stick with a shower. The footprint of a shower is approximately 9 square feet. The extra percentage of open floor space will make a big difference in the functionality and overall experience of your renovated bathroom.

Walk-in showers and tubs come with many types of amenities these days. It doesn’t have to feel like a sacrifice to give up a tub when you can have a walk-in show with a rainforest shower experience, multiple showerheads or jets, a steam function, and smart technology to play your favorite music or listen to your morning news programs.

Who Is Using This Bathroom?

It pays to think about practical issues when planning your bathroom remodel. Who is using this bathroom? Do you have young children or teens? Children grow up quickly. If you don’t want to spend time arguing with your smelly teens about cleanliness, make it easy for them to jump in and out of the walk-in shower after their soccer games or skateboarding sessions. Also, what is going to be easiest for you to keep clean?

Is this bathroom for guests, aging parents, or in a spare room that you Airbnb? If so, you probably want a walk-in shower to suit most people and be equipped with safety features and handicap-accessible. If you have the luxury of space to consider both a walk-in shower and a stand-alone tub, well, that is the best of both worlds.

If it’s just you and your partner to consider, then start with your needs and desires. Do you have room for both a stand-alone bath and a walk-in shower? Are your shower people or bath people? Check out the design magazines and a few bathroom showrooms to get familiar with all the fantastic options.

What’s Your Budget?

An average price for a lower-end bathroom remodeling works out to be between $12,000 and $15,000. Also, remember that costs equate to square footage for both labor and materials. That’s why there is a price difference between remodeling your master bath vs. your half bath.

If your renovation budget is more flexible, there are some things that you can achieve within the mid-range bathroom remodel. The average estimate for a mid-range bathroom remodel is approximately $22,000 to $30,000. Some of the differences you’ll see with a renovation at this price point are wood cabinetry, up-leveled shower fixtures, and the opportunity to play with more variety of titles and stones for counters, flooring, and showers.

If you’re ready to invest in creating the bathroom of your dreams, you may find yourself in the higher-end budget for the cost of your bathroom remodel. The average estimate for a high-end bathroom renovation is between $55,000 and $75,000.


According to the industry standards, the average cost of a tub plus installation is $400 to $8,000, compared to an average of $400 to $10,000 to build a walk-in shower.

The wide range in pricing is dependent on your choice of either a simple basic prefab shower or, on the higher end, a custom walk-in shower with all the bells and whistles, the same with the bath pricing. The starting price is for a simple basic bath. The higher pricing is for a spa tub with lots of options and technology.

While it may seem that the walk-in show is prohibitively more expensive, there are a few things to consider before making your selection.

A water-saving showerhead will save you money on your water bill. The average shower only uses 17 gallons compared to the average bath’s 24. Over time the cost savings of the shower will add up. Keep more money in your pocket and conserve precious water.


Check with the realtors in your neighborhood. Upgraded bathrooms with walk-in showers are very on-trend for 2021. According to a National Association of Home Builders survey, 51 percent of home buyers expect a full bathroom to mean one with a tub.

Remodeling Magazine estimated that bathroom remodels that included a porcelain tub yielded an ROI of 70.1 percent, whereas a remodel that featured a curbless walk-in shower produced a 70.6 percent ROI.

When it comes to adding value to your home, the number to focus on is that bathroom remodel can increase resale value by 20 percent. Potential buyers do demand an updated bathroom.

How to Choose the Best Paint for Your Bathrooms

How to Choose the Best Paint for Your Bathrooms

Maybe you are not quite ready to remodel the bathroom in your Los Angeles home but are thinking a nice new coat of paint would make all the difference. That sounds like a great weekend DYI project. A new paint color, some updated bathroom accessories, and fresh towels will give you just the pick-me-up you are looking for.


  • What are the 2021 trends for bathroom colors?
  • What do you need to do to prepare the walls before starting with a new coat of paint?
  • How do you prevent mold and peeling paint?
  • Can you paint on tile walls?

2021 Wall Color Trends

According to Martha Stuart, the bathroom trends we can expect to see for 2021 are:

  • Varied shades of pale blues
  • Deep saturated greens to create some real drama.
  • Warm neutrals for a spa-like atmosphere
  • Soft yellow tones accessorized with natural materials
  • All white bathroom to create that clean and relaxed feel. She recommends lite grey grout if you want a more updated look.

Choose Wall Colors that don’t affect mirror reflections.

The one thing to keep in mind when choosing the paint for your bathrooms update is how it will interact with the lighting in the bathroom. If you are painting your powder room, this might not be a concern and you can go for a dramatic effect. If this is the main bathroom where you get ready, do your makeup, and require lighting that reflects how you will look in natural light, it is essential to remember that natural walls may be the right choice, simply because they make you look your look best. A darker color may cast shadows or reflect an unflattering hue on your skin. Whites, grays, and pastels are popular bathroom colors because they flatter your skin and create a relaxing space. Flattering colors are critical for a room that gets so much use.

The best paint for your bathrooms should offer mold and mildew resistance.

Let’s face it; bathrooms are a wet space and ripe for mold and mildew. Often bathrooms do not have sufficient ventilation. Most do not have windows, so our bathrooms are steeped in moisture most of the time. In Los Angeles, California, the state takes mold very seriously. Mold can cause severe health issues, with long-term health effects if not recognized and treaded.

To protect you and your family and the future value of your home, keeping it mold-free is a top priority.

Fortunately, there are many options of paint with anti-microbial additives that resist mold. Check out  Benjamin Moore’s Aura Bath And Spa Matte Finish (Benjamin Moore) and Zinsser’s Perma-White
( Amazon)
 Once on the wall, these paints will kill existing mold and prevent new mold from growing.

Use a moisture-resistant primer to prevent peeling.

Peeling paint occurs when moisture seeps between the paint and its surface. The most suspectable areas are the unventilated areas, like the shower or bath, where steam rises and gets trapped. If you have the option of a bathroom window to provide additional ventilation, it can make a big difference in lowering the bathroom’s humidity. Also, if you have an older home, you might want to replace the bathroom fan with a more modern and energy-efficient ventilation system. To prevent peeling, apply a coat of moisture-resistant primer to the ceiling or walls before you add your mildew-resistant paint color. The reduction in moisture will extend the life of your paint job.

Another option is to select a semi-gloss or high-gloss paint.

Using a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish is another way to get the job done. Glossy paints cannot prevent mold, but they’re easier to clean and maintain than paint with flat and eggshell finishes. If you find traces of mold, it will be easier to remediate with a semi-gloss vs. a flat paint. Homeowners who don’t like the sheen of glossy paints can opt for satin instead; it’s slightly less reflective yet still not difficult to clean.

How to Paint on Tiles or Glossy Surfaces

You can paint over ceramic tile walls in a bathroom. Remember, you will lose some of the textural look because the grout will be the same color as the tiles. For best results, paint tile walls that have limited exposure to water. Skip the shower tiles and stick to the decorative walls.

To prepare tile for painting:

  • Clean Tile: Clean the tile to remove any dirt, mildew, or soap scum using an abrasive bathroom cleaner. After cleaning, wipe the surface down with a clean, wet sponge to remove any residue, then allow the surface to dry thoroughly.
  • Sand Tile:  Lightly sand the tile with fine (180-220 grit) synthetic grit sandpaper, such as silicon carbide or aluminum oxide, to take the gloss off the glazed surface. An orbital sander will do a faster and better job than hand sanding.
  • Remove Dust:  Wipe down the surface with a damp cloth to remove any dust and allow it to dry before painting.

There are two painting options for tile:

  • Latex Paint: Apply one to two coats of a bonding primer made to adhere to surfaces such as tile. Allow the primer to dry for the recommended time, followed by two topcoats of acrylic latex wall paint.
  • Epoxy Paint: Apply two coats of a two-part epoxy paint made for tile and other hard to paint surfaces, such as Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile. Follow the directions carefully, and allow the recommended drying time before using. The colors available for epoxy paint may be limited.

Now that you have chosen the best paint for your bathrooms let’s get started

Take care to prep before painting.

  • Step One – Before applying mold-resistant paint or your primer, clean the bathroom walls thoroughly and remove any mildew with a DIY solution of three parts water to one part bleach.
  • Step Two- Tape off your corners, doorways, floorboards, and any other spots you want to protect from excess paint using painter tape.
  • Step Three- Get out your drop cloths or old sheets to cover the sinks, floors, countertops, and toilet.
  • Step Four- Begin painting in the corners and work your way out and across the walls. Let the paint dry for at least two days or more, if possible, to give the paint time to set before taking a shower. Ventilate the bathroom well while painting and throughout the drying process. Then stand back and admire your work. Wait a few days, then bring in your new accessories and enjoy your refurbished bathroom!!!

Now, if choosing the best paint for your bathrooms, prepping the walls, and painting seems too much to get done, then leave it to the professionals.

Bathroom Remodel Ideas 2021

Bathroom Remodel Ideas 2021

The longer we stay home, the more things we find to fix in our homes. Have you been browsing through Instagram and the house remodel magazines looking for ideas for a bathroom remodel?
There is nothing sadder than a bathroom that needs updating. Since this is one of the most well-used rooms in the house, it’s hard to ignore all the things that do not bring your joy.

Before you start your Los Angeles Bathroom Remodel, let’s discuss the trends and bathroom  remodel ideas for 2021.


Flooring – Let’s start from the ground up if you want the supreme luxury of a spa bathroom splurge for heated flooring. Heated towel racks, heated toilet seats, and heated flooring are the ultimate comfort options for your spa experience.

Ceramic and porcelain tile flooring have been the go-to for bathroom flooring forever. An exciting new design idea includes ceramic tile that looks like wood flooring. It brings the warmth and style of a more contemporary organic look while maintaining the ceramic materials’ practicality for the bathroom space.

Old World Charm- Go decadent. If you want to remodel your bathroom in 2021 but have the experience of stepping into a bath that has the old-world charm of a five-star European Hotel, remodel your bathroom entirely in marble. A fabulous stand-alone marble tub can be the focal point of the room. Use deeply veined, contrasting marble flooring, walls, sinks, and vanity tops. Find rich deep colors that are relaxing and refined. This showstopper bathroom will be fit for a king and queen, or maybe even a James Bond movie.

The Natural- A great bathroom remodel ideas for 2021 is bringing the outdoors inside. Open your bathroom up to the outdoors. Bring in plants, natural lighting, natural materials. Wood, stone, and reclaimed materials are now becoming part of a Los Angeles bathroom renovation trend. Go for a rustic look or boho sheik. We all need more nature and green in our lives. What better place to add it than in your bathroom?

Light the way- Statement lighting is an easy way to bring some drama to the bathroom and update your look. We are no longer restricted to “bathroom fixtures” when it comes to lighting. Choose a dramatic chandelier to set the mood and create a new motif for your bathroom renovation. Whether you go modern metal and chrome or old-world crystals and sparkle for the” movie star” look, if you love it, yes, it does belong in the bathroom!!!

Smart Technology bathroom remodel ideas 2021- The year of the intelligent toilet.

A must-have bathroom remodel ideas for 2021 is the Smart Toilet. Since the Covid Pandemic hit, we have all become super vigilant about cleanliness. Keeping the bathroom surfaces clean is a job by itself. Wouldn’t you love a toilet that is: self-cleaning, self-flushing, and with an automatic lid closing function? It saves you time and spares you the dirtiest cleaning job in the house.

It’s all in the details- how about back-lit mirrors and medicine cabinets, floating vanities, and vintage full-size rugs.

Some Final Los Angeles Bathroom Remodel Trends in 20201

  • Subway tiles are always in style. Use a pop of color or keep a to the traditional black and white motif.
  • Quartz countertops are the top choice for a clean bathroom. The surface is non-porous, so easy to keep bacteria-free and will stand up well to all the cleanings.
  • Large-format tiles are a simple way to bring a bold look to your bathroom design.

Find your style, and then visit some of the Los Angles Showrooms to explore materials and fixtures. Once you have a vision for your bathroom renovation, it’s time to call in the professional design and remodel team to take your ideas and make them a reality.
