Remodeling your bathroom is a fantastic way to add value to your home and create a space where you can relax and unwind. In Vermont, where the seasons can be quite distinct, there are certain must-haves to consider for your bathroom remodel. Here are some ideas to create a bathroom that’s both functional and stylish.

1. Heated Floors

There’s nothing worse than stepping onto a cold floor on a chilly Vermont morning. Heated floors are a luxurious addition to any bathroom remodel. They provide warmth underfoot and can even help reduce overall heating costs in the winter.

2. Efficient Insulation

Proper insulation is crucial in Vermont, where winters can be harsh. Make sure your bathroom is well-insulated to keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This includes insulating walls, floors, and even pipes to prevent them from freezing.

3. Ample Storage

A clutter-free bathroom is a serene bathroom. Incorporate plenty of storage into your remodel. Consider adding a vanity with drawers, wall-mounted cabinets, or even built-in shelves. This will help keep your bathroom organized and make it easier to find what you need.

4. Natural Light

Vermont is known for its beautiful natural scenery. If possible, incorporate a window into your bathroom remodel to let in natural light and provide a view of the outdoors. If privacy is a concern, consider frosted glass or a window treatment that allows light in while maintaining privacy.

5. Walk-In Shower

A walk-in shower is a popular choice for bathroom remodels. It’s accessible, easy to clean, and can make your bathroom feel more spacious. Consider adding a bench and multiple showerheads for a spa-like experience.

6. Quality Fixtures

Invest in quality fixtures for your bathroom remodel. This includes faucets, showerheads, and lighting. Quality fixtures not only look better but also tend to last longer, saving you money in the long run.

7. Eco-Friendly Features

Vermonters are known for their love of nature and commitment to sustainability. Incorporate eco-friendly features into your bathroom remodel, such as low-flow faucets and showerheads, energy-efficient lighting, and sustainable materials.

8. Personal Touches

Add personal touches to your bathroom to make it uniquely yours. This could be in the form of a colorful backsplash, unique tiles, or even a piece of art. Personal touches add character and make your bathroom feel more like a retreat.
