Miami Bathroom Ideas: Should I Replace or Refinish?

When your bathroom needs a makeover you have two main options: save or splurge. The pick between the two can be more difficult than you think and relying on your contractor might backfire as well: even experts have difficulties when it comes to deciding what stays and what goes. We here at America Bathtub and Tile Refinishing pride ourselves on helping to empower our clients make the best educated decision possible. To help you decide, here is a small guide on how to go through the process.

Which items are the most valuable?

The first thing you have to decide before starting a makeover project is which are the elements you are fond of. For example, you may have an amazing mirror which sits on the backsplash. For a simple project of tile refinishing in Miami you won't have any problems preserving the mirror; if you want to change the countertop, the mirror is also going to suffer. In our case, your makeover is going to evolve around the mirror, which means other elements in the bathroom can go, but the mirror stays. The value of an item can be financial or emotional.

Decorate or design in Miami?

One of the key factors in deciding what to keep and what to throw away is knowing what you want from the new project. Decorating or re-decorating means adding new strokes of color, for example. Tweaking the room, if you want to put it like that. On the other hand, refinishing is a matter of all or nothing. After you are sure which one you want, instruct your contractor for tile refinishing in Miami, so you don't find yourself in the middle of a huge misunderstanding.

Watch out for the floors

One of the overlooked features of a room is the floor and this can lead to problems during a refinishing project. If you want to keep the floor intact, make sure you get vocal about it and discuss the options you have when it comes to redesigning the room without breaking the floor tiles. Most people find this after the first tile cracks during a tub replacement.
