When it comes to updating your bathroom, there are usually three main terms that you hear: bathroom remodeling, bathroom renovation, and bathroom refurbishment While you may think that these terms are interchangeable, there are differences between them—so it’s important to know which of these services is the right choice for you before moving into the design and build process!

The Difference Between Bathroom Remodeling, Renovation & Refurbishment

Let’s talk about the difference between the work that is done for bathroom remodels, renovations, and refurbishments to update the appearance and functionality of your Central PA bathrooom.

Bathroom Refurbishment

When it comes to bathroom refurbishment, you’re looking at simply “refreshing” your bathroom. These will be minor updates to the features that already exist in your bathroom, thus making this one of the least expensive ways to transform your space.

Refurbishing your bathroom includes things like painting your walls or cabinets a different color, adding new hardware to your existing vanity, or putting a frame around your bathroom mirror. These may seem like minor changes, but they can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your bathroom!

Bathroom Renovation

In the case of bathroom renovations, we’re talking about restoring your bathroom to make it both more visually appealing and functional. This could include somewhat minor services like updating the flooring, installing new countertops, or adding tiling or a wall-surround to your shower or bathtub.

However, a bathroom renovation could also include some major changes, like replacing your vanity, sink, toilet, or bathtub with a newer model that better suits your taste and needs. These sorts of installations enhance the functionality of your space, but they still work within the confines of your existing bathroom structure. You’re not tearing everything out and replacing it with a totally new room—you’re simply replacing a few items to make the room work better for your needs.

During a renovation, the things you replace or renovate tend to stay in the same spot. You put in a new vanity where your old vanity used to be, or replace your old toilet with a new toilet in the same location within your bathroom. That’s the major difference between a remodel and a renovation: renovations basically come down to updating what you already have to make it work better for you!
