Why 1 Day Bathroom Remodels Are Not a Good Thing

Serving Bastrop county and other surrounding areas in TX since 2015 and helping homeowners get closer to the perfect vision for their home.

A bathroom remodel usually costs more per square foot than any other room in the house. It’s understandable why you would want to try and save time and money with a great-sounding 1 day bathroom remodel. Convenient and cheap, it’s hard to beat that! However, these 1 day bathroom remodels usually leave much to be desired and can leave you back where you started – in need of a full update or custom bathroom remodel.

Typically, a 1 day bathroom remodel only updates an existing bathtub or shower. This update is not a complete replacement of the old fixtures, but refinished with an acrylic liner that is placed over the original shower/tub. The liner locks in moisture and over time becomes a home for mildew and mold, causing compromised air quality in your bathroom. Modifying your existing shower or tub isn’t going to be covered by the installation warranty either.  What was meant to be an improvement can result in an even greater need for a remodel not too far down the road.

What A 1 Day Bathroom Remodel Leaves Out

1 day bathroom remodels do not include anything that would require plumbing or electrical work and rearranging or expanding a space cannot be done in a single day. These quick turnaround projects also don’t include new flooring, vanities, cabinets, sinks, toilets, lighting fixtures or ventilation modifications. The variety of customization will be limited with a 1 day project and you will have to stick with the options presented to you.

A Bathroom Remodel Done Right

A remodeled bathroom is a very certain way of increasing the overall value of your home, but more than just a property investment, it can be a place of comfort and rest. To create your own personal spa it needs to be carefully planned and there are some guidelines to follow that will give you a beautiful bathroom that you will be thrilled to have in your home!


  • The remodelers should also be the designers
  • Coordinate the aesthetic of all fixtures and flooring
  • Planning all of the details from start to finish
  • Hire a company that gets all of the necessary permits
  • Make sure high quality products are being installed
  • Have a clear understanding of the workmanship warranty and what it covers
  • No cover up work!

If you’re going to make the investment, make sure that the end result will be a place that you want to spend your time and that it will stay that way for many years to come!
