When Is the Best Time to Remodel?

While there are no restrictions on when a homeowner can begin a remodel, you can save yourself time and money if you plan your project strategically and consider the following:

  • Fall is the busiest time of year for renovations and remodels, as homeowners take time to prepare for the holiday season.
  • Fixtures, hardware, and tile typically drop in price after the holiday season, so even if you don’t plan on beginning your master bathroom upgrade until the spring, consider purchasing your materials early to save time and money.
  • Some materials can take longer to order; by planning ahead, you can avoid delays and frustration.

Master Bathroom Design Considerations

As the room where you begin and end each day, consider the following when planning your master bathroom upgrade:


In a room like the master bath where you may be waking up, winding down, or getting ready for the day, it’s important to have a variety of lighting types and fixtures to accommodate your needs, including:

  • Task – Adequate lighting beside the mirror is crucial for tasks such as shaving, makeup application, and more. Consider placing wall sconces at eye level on each side of the mirror as opposed to lighting from above, which can cause unwelcome shadows.
  • Accent – Perfect for highlighting architectural features or items such as artwork.
  • Ambient – Overall lighting can be supplied by multiple recessed fixtures around the perimeter of the room. Be sure to include a dimmer switch to adjust the level according to your needs.
  • Decorative –  Consider adding a central fixture or chandelier for added character.
  • Natural – Windows or skylights add a touch of nature and can help with ventilation.


Deep drawers, cabinetry, recessed shelving or medicine cabinets, open shelving, and more can house all your medicines, toiletries, and linens. With Meridian, you can customize your storage options as much as desired!


Whether you opt for porcelain tile, ceramic tile, or a natural stone, make sure the flooring you choose is non-slip, water resistant, durable, and easy to clean. Radiant in-floor heating is a must for those cold Pennsylvania winter mornings.


With so many available options, you’ll need to ask yourself some important questions before you choose:

  • Do you need a bathtub?
  • Would you prefer individual vanities or a single vanity with dual sinks?
  • Would you like a separate water closet?
  • Is your master bathroom large enough to accommodate your fixtures, or do you need to add or borrow more space?


Save energy and natural resources by choosing low-flow water fixtures such as toilets and faucets.
