When homeowners decide to make a home improvement, they think of the bathroom. This is the place where one can get away from all the stresses in life. By redesigning your bathroom cabinets, sinks, bathtubs, or even the floor, you can turn your bathroom into a newly designed retreat where relaxation and unwinding is the ultimate experience.
The bathroom is the most used room in the house, so it should seem that it is the most remodeled room. After a certain period of time owning a home, the bathroom becomes the most boring, even if nothing has been done since you moved in. Most likely, your bathroom is the standard white sink, white tub, and white toilet. Now there are many bathroom renovation ideas to choose from, such as a spa bath, fog-free mirrors, a warming bathroom floor, to name a few. Install a new shower faucet with an anti-scald pressure regulator – remove the scenario where someone flushes the toilet and out comes scalding water from your shower faucet. Replace crumbling tile in the shower stall with a maintenance-free shower surround. Grab bars in the shower, a new water-saver toilet, and/or a new whirlpool tub. You can go from a small bathroom remodeling design project to a major bathroom renovation. The project’s size will depend on the size of your budget and the amount of inconvenience you want to have. Remodeling a bathroom can be expensive. The average cost of a full renovation of a bathroom when hiring a contractor is about the same as a small car’s cost. By doing part or all of the remodeling work yourself, you can save thousands of dollars. While deciding on bathroom remodeling, remember that homeowners could recoup approximately 85% of their costs upon the sale of their home in most recent years. This recovery is when a professional remodel the bathroom.
Some professionals consider small projects consisting of replacing the tub with a new tub or a shower unit. If you are considering for your bathroom, you will need to include the flooring in your plans. Most new tubs or shower units will not cover where the old flooring conformed to the old tub. This work will involve removing fixtures (toilet, etc.), which will cause labor costs to rise. A project like this is okay, but most homeowners usually consider a medium to large remodeling project for the bathroom. For these projects, you want to plan very carefully to be happy with what you end up with after the project is completed. You will want to make sure that you have extra facilities to use while the remodeling progresses. Your plans should include the fixture placement, i.e., do you keep the old layout or create a new one? What type of lighting do you want? Do you want task lighting at every functional area or general lighting throughout the bathroom? Do you want a bathroom heating system to keep you warm when you get out of the shower (i.e., floor warming system)? Do you want greenery, or how about a HiFi television for your bathroom? Fog-free mirrors? No more waiting for steam to clear before you can see yourself! Plan carefully and within your budget! When the project is completed, enjoy the new room you designed for you and your family!
