In a newer home, or on a tighter budget, families may decide that a less extensive renovation is needed. Updating fixtures is another way to freshen the overall look of the room. If the fixtures are still rose pink or olive green, colors that were popular decades ago, it may be time to consider investing the bulk of the budget in updates.
Bathroom remodels are some of the most exciting. There is just so much that you can do to your bathroom to transform it into a haven of peace where you can enjoy your private minutes in total relaxation. The choices you make with your remodeling project will determine the end results you enjoy hence the importance of paying attention to all key areas before you start with the project.
Often people are too inclined on accessorising the bathroom with too many unnecessary fixtures. Chalk out a list of essential items and eliminate the ones that are not often useful. This will benefit you in many ways. You can cut down on the costs, keep the bathroom look clean and organised and reduce the labor cost on the fixtures.
If the bathroom looks very old because of stained bathtub and sink, do not replace them. You can opt for the economical process of refinishing. It will remove the stains that mar the beauty of the bathroom. If you are interested in changing the color of countertops and bathtub, a refinishing job can achieve the goal with a limited budget.
It is essential to sustain a clean and fresh shower and especially to keep your shower mats fresh. The mats are intended to prevent people from slipping around in the shower. The more unclean the mats become the more slippery your shower will be. Showering is a daily process for people so clean your shower and mat regularly, not only to be safe from slipping but to have a pleasantly fresh environment for your shower.
The bathroom is where you have those relaxing steam baths, but if your space does not manage to dry out properly after use, then you will start having issues with mold and mildew. Moisture is the last thing you want trapped in the bathroom so put in measures to ensure that it remains moisture free most of the times. You can think about high placed bathroom windows in the right sizes to aid natural drying out and proper air circulation, or you can also have a vent fan installed. If you decide to go for the fan, make site that you get the appropriate CFMs per square footage of the bathroom. You do not have to worry about noisy fans because modern new designs are very quiet and stylish, making them great additions to any bathroom.
Accessibility: Not all walk-in tubs are wheelchair-accessible. You should see the tub before purchasing and installing it to get a clear picture of where and how it would be installed. If you are particularly immobile and need as much aid in seat-to-seat transfer as possible, a tub that supports lateral access is the ideal pick. The method of accessibility influences the method of installation to some degree. There are corner-installed tubs that are wheelchair-accessible, but those do not support direct lateral access.
