Cleaning Up Your Bathroom

The Biggest Bang for Your Bathroom Buck!


Even though the bathroom is where we get clean, it can be one of the dirtiest rooms in the home. Bathroom floors are exposed to dirty feet and dripping towels, while shower walls can be a trap for soap scum, mildew, and bacteria. If your tile looks a little worse for the wear – or if your grout is dark and grimy, DogGoneHandy is here to help! Especially if you’ve just purchased a new home (or a new-to-you older home), it might be time for some tile repairs and re-grouting!


While a full bath remodel is tempting, costs can add up quickly. One of the most high-impact and savvy ways to transform your bathroom is to do a tile overhaul. Replace that drab shower wall with something more modern and easy to clean! Or, replace your outdated or cheap-looking floors with a stylish design. Here are a few of our favorite tile trends to try. A DogGoneHandy professional can help determine which style and what color grout would fit your family’s needs and look best in your home.


  • Wood Tile: Wood tile has all the warmth and charm of wood floors –with the strength, durability, and water resistance of tile! Wood tiles are just what they sound like: tiles that are shaped, designed, and colored to look like wood flooring planks.  
  • Travertine: Used for thousands of years in Mediterranean countries, travertine inspires an antiquated, spa-like feeling. In shades of cream, beige, and other natural hues, travertine is easy replaceable if it gets damaged, because the stone color has natural variation. It’s easy to cut, which makes travertine great for for complex bathroom projects and odd spaces. While it requires a little extra daily care, it’s a classic choice that remains popular in modern homes. 
  • Subway Tile: First first used in early 1900’s New York subway stations, subway tile has been a bathroom mainstay for decades. It has been re-popularized – and for good reason! This sleek tile imparts a fresh, minimalist look. It’s easy to clean and resists stains well. While white is a popular choice, subway tile comes in just about any shade, helping it fit your home’s personality with ease. 
  • Heated Floors: Especially on chilly winter mornings, a heated flooring system can transform your cold tile, and your morning routine. These heated solutions go underneath the tile to deliver heat from below your tile floor’s surface, keeping your bathroom –and your family – warm. 


DogGoneHandy can handle all types of “ruff” bathroom repair projects, and you won’t find local contractors more devoted to their craft! No matter which style you choose, our local handyman services will help make sure that your bathroom feels clean, welcoming, and up-to-date.
