Checklist for a Full Bathroom Remodel in Ann Arbor

Don’t overlook any item on this list as you plan your bathroom remodeling project!

  • Think About Your GoalsDecide on your goals for your checklist for a full bathroom remodel in Ann Arbor

The first step is to sit down and think about your primary goals for your bathroom remodel. What is the most important thing for you to get out of this project? For some homeowners, it’s creating a safer bathroom as they plan to age in place. For others, it’s about replacing outdated features with a more modern design. Whatever your goals are, have them clearly defined before moving forward. 

  • Decide on a Design

Next, think about what you want your upgraded bathroom to look like. Consider different bathroom design styles and figure out what appeals to you most. Do you want to create a rustic farmhouse vibe? Or is a sleek and modern design more your style? As you figure out what kind of design you want to create in your updated space, you can also use this time to decide which materials will best fit the aesthetic you want in your bathroom. 

  • Figure Out What Will Stay and What Will GoDecide what will stay and what will go in your checklist for a full bathroom remodel in Ann Arbor

This is also a good time to look around your existing bathroom and identify the things you do like and the things you don’t. Are there any things that you definitely want to keep or remove? If you want to make your bathroom feel safer, adding grab bars might be an item that you consider a must-have in your renovated space. On the other hand, you might have a vintage pedestal sink that you want to integrate into the new look. Either way, make sure you have a solid idea of what you do and don’t want in your upgraded bathroom. 

  • Vanities and Vanity Tops

Choosing the right vanity starts with thinking about how much cabinet space you need. From there, you can choose the right top that will complement the rest of your design. We proudly offer natural granite, quartz, and composite vanity tops so there is something that will appeal to every homeowner. 

  • FlooringChoose your flooring as part of your checklist for a full bathroom remodel in Ann Arbor

When planning a full bathroom remodel, you’ll also want to choose a durable flooring option. Our installers usually recommend 100% waterproof vinyl plank flooring, which won’t warp or buckle when exposed to water. Our vinyl plank flooring comes in a number of patterns, colors, and textures to perfectly match the rest of your design. 

  • Toilets

An often-overlooked area during a bathroom remodel is the toilet. Before you choose a replacement toilet, put some thought into how long you plan to stay in your home. If you want to age in place, consider installing a “comfort height” toilet, which is a few inches higher than a standard toilet and easier to use for those with limited mobility. 

  • Shower vs TubPick between a shower or walk-in-tub for your checklist for a full bathroom remodel in Ann Arbor

The area you’ll most often use in your new bathroom is your tub or shower area, so take some time to think about how to get the most enjoyment out of the space. To create a modern bathroom, consider installing a chic Jacuzzi shower customized to your liking. If safety is a concern, then a Rane walk-in tub might be a better option for your needs. Our bathroom remodeling experts can help you decide which tub or shower will work best for your family. 

  • Finishing Touches

Finally, don’t forget the small finishing touches to complete your refreshed look. Find the perfect mirror to hang over your sink, pick out non-slip bath mats that match the rest of the design, and choose stylish lighting to help give your updated bathroom a more complete look.

"This was our second experience with Atlas. The shower in our last home was truly a primary selling feature. We returned to Atlas because of the quality of the job and the professionalism of the install. We were happy to see the same installers we had at our other house three years ago arrive here today. Chad and Bill did an excellent job. We received the same professionalism and quality we expected. They arrived with all the materials they would need, no hidden surprises, quality materials. They truly live up to everything they promise!"

"Recently, Atlas Home Improvement finished the second phase of my bathroom remodel. Matt and Chad were here every morning on time, stated in their morning phone call. They were friendly, efficient, knew their job and the job site was always in order and clean. They even went out of their way to make sure I was aware of all aspects of the job. They were GREAT!!! This is a great company!!! Very clean and considerate while putting in my new shower. Time the sales consultant was wonderful and really listened to what I want and was never pushy or tried to sell me something I didn't want. David did a wonderful job installing my shower. Great product they sell. I recommend this company highly!"

"Dave put in a stair lift for me and I was very, very pleased with the whole experience. He assessed the situation with an eye on my safety and recommended changing the side of the staircase the lift was to be installed on. He did the installation quietly and quickly and without creating any mess. And he made sure I understood how the equipment worked and watched me test ride it. I could not have been more satisfied with the whole process. I would highly recommend Atlas to any senior looking to modify their home so that they can age in place."

"We were experiencing temperature problems with our brand new walk-in tub, in that the temperature would not get very hot. After a call to Atlas we were scheduled by the office staff for an appointment within 2 days, which we very much appreciated. Dave arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the problem - and he quickly fixed it. Dave was very professional, pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our problem has now been fixed! Thank you Atlas for having such a great installation, office, and repair staff."

"We had our shower completely re-done by Dave. It was a custom job that involved replacing a sub floor and some plumbing issues. They were friendly, hard workers, our shower turned out perfect! I strongly recommend Atlas Home Improvement they stand by their work!"

– Sherry G.

"Our dealings with Atlas Home Improvement have been nothing but a delight. We had booked them through Home Depot Home Services which had a salesman come out and was easy to deal with and took his time to explain all of the steps to the process. Atlas delivered the exact way they had promised we were in the loop knowing when our materials were ordered when they came in and to finally setting up the appointment. The workmanship was 5 star excellent and we could not have been happier with our new shower enclosure it really made a difference!"
