Choose The Best – Choose
Executive Remodeling

A successful bathroom remodeling service for your Minnetonka home considers several factors, such as your budget, how you plan to use the space, designing with the future in mind, and other important considerations.

But as exciting as planning out your bathroom remodel can be, it’s important not to rush into it without thinking through all the considerations.

No matter how overwhelming your bathroom remodel may seem at the moment, let Executive Remodeling take the stress out of your remodel with our full-service, personalized approach.

1. Are You Doing A Small Bathroom
Remodel Or Something More?

Knowing which bathroom you want to remodel makes a world of difference in how you approach the project. After all, you’ll have a different approach to remodeling your master bath than a guest bathroom.

Understanding which bathroom you want to remodel can guide your decisions about your desired features. If you have young children and you’re remodeling the bathroom the kids mainly use, a walk-in shower may be impractical. You may opt for a more colorful palette and focus less on luxury and more on practicality as opposed to a master bath.

If you’re remodeling your master bathroom and live with your spouse, you may consider double sinks, a larger shower, or more square footage.

A half-bath for guests is the perfect opportunity to experiment with bold colors and designs, as such designs won’t be overwhelming in such a small space.

2. How Will You Use Your Remodeled Bathroom?

If you’re remodeling your guest bathroom, you may not spend much time in it, making your decisions for the remodel different than if you were remodeling your master bath, where you may like to take your time getting ready in the morning.

Understanding how you use your space influences your decisions on storage, decor, fixtures, etc.

3. Don’t Overlook Small But Important Features
During Your Bathroom Remodeling Project

It’s easy to think about the big things – such as whether you want a shower or tub and what kind of style you want – but small features can have a lot of impact on how comfortable your space ultimately is.


Bathrooms are generally well-lit, or getting ready in the morning would be tough. Consider what lighting your bathroom already has. Do you want to keep it the same or have more or less? How does natural light from windows come into play?


Poor ventilation is a hotbed for the buildup of mold and mildew, and no one wants to be cleaning their grout all the time! Not to mention, mold and mildew can affect your health and that of your household.

Make sure you have adequate ventilation for your bathroom remodel; that way, you’ll be able to relax in your bathroom without worrying about mold.


Creative storage solutions are what make the difference between a cluttered bathroom and a pristine oasis where everything has a place. Cabinets, shelves, bins, and other solutions ensure everything has its place, and you won’t have to deal with clutter.


Not every bathroom remodel has to include redoing the flooring. But if your current flooring is damaged or outdated, now’s the chance for something new.

If you’ve always wanted heated flooring – which is a must-have here in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Area – now’s the perfect chance to install it.

4. Understand Your Bathroom Remodeling Budget

The costs of a bathroom remodel are as important as the remodel itself. Know what you can afford, and provide a comfortable range for your design-build firm to work within.

Going over budget is a mistake many homeowners make, so it’s important to take the time to carefully consider the features you are looking for and how they fit into your budget.

At Executive Remodeling, we promise to work within your budget and present you with the best bathroom remodeling solutions you can afford.

5. Have The Future In Mind When Considering

Are you planning on selling your home in the future? Consider a neutral theme in your bathroom remodel that will appeal to a wider audience.

Do you plan on aging in place? Then, switch out that tub for an accessible soaker tub designed for seniors or a walk-in shower with the potential to install grab bars.

Are you just starting your family, or will your children be moving out of the house in the coming years? This will help you determine whether a bathtub is necessary in the kids’ bathroom.

Understanding both your short-term and long-term plans for your home is key to ensuring your bathroom remodel suits your needs for years to come.
