Well, we'd need to know what you have in mind.  For some around here "improving" the bathroom simply means flushing the toilet, while for others it's marble and gold fixtures.

As a remodeler trying to retire, bathrooms were the most unpleasant jobs with the exception of a few.  Those few had the room, the money to cover the budget, and the pleasant owners demeanor.

 Bathrooms per sq. ft can scare a homeowner when the bid is given.  The smallest sq ft space in the house times the most expensive per sq ft cost.......

In new construction, the space can be allocated, framed as such for the amenities and their supply and disposal.  In a remodel a simple toilet move can affect many ares besides the room itself.

Some try to use a shoehorn to get all the things they want in that space.

"Well remove the tub and replace with a walkin shower......."

" We'd like a nice counter with 2 sinks....."

 

Above all, the remodel really affects the occupants and tries the one or ones doing the work.

after that it's a pc of cake.

Hi, I'm thinking maybe adding bathtub or improving the tiles and what kind of tiles should I use. At the moment I have  ceramic tiles but I honestly don't like the design. I was wondering what tiles is best. You know? something like that?

"Ceramic tile" covers a vast (post #214660, reply #6 of 12)

"Ceramic tile" covers a vast array of options, from tiny mosaics to giant 8x12 chunks.  And there are variations off into glass and mirrored tile, which, while not literally "ceramic", are installed in the same way.

There is no doubt a tile shop somewhere near you with displays showing you many options.

As to adding a bathtub, that would usually be a major piece of work (and major expense).  You would need to get someone knowledgeable to examine your setup to see if it would be relatively easy or an incredible effort -- it depends in great measure on what's under the floor, etc.

lol, so asking a question in a forum is now considered as spam? or maybe you were just making your own assumption and jumping into conclusion?

asking a question is not spam.

in your case, I'd advise calling in a qualified remodeler and getting an estimate.  I've been doing this for 45 years and never once could I or would I answer this question over the phone.
