Bathroom Remodel To Ring in the New Year
After a while, the same old bathroom starts to be an eyesore. Fixtures discolor due to hard water minerals, and paint fades. Maybe a tile pops loose, or a faucet starts to drip. No matter the circumstance, it’s time for a bathroom update.
A remodeled bathroom gives the homeowner peace of mind and adds value to the home. By updating the sink, toilet, shower, or tub, the bathroom is being brought up to par with the time. In this article, plumbing experts cover three main areas homeowners should focus on to make the most of a bathroom remodeling project.
Upgraded Sinks Make a Big Difference
There are a variety of sinks now available on the market. Most bathroom sinks sit on top of a vanity. A vanity is the lower cabinet usually accommodated with drawers, doors, and other storage space. For small bathrooms, pedestal sinks help save room by only having a single column or pedestal that the sink sets on. The drain and water lines are normally hidden behind the pedestal for a clean finish.
Stand-alone sinks are also available, providing complete clearance under the sink. These mount directly to the wall. A major disadvantage to the latter two, although homeowners save space, they lose storage. A stand-alone sink also leaves most plumbing exposed.
Additionally, homeowners can install more than one sink in a bathroom as well. Two sinks are common in master bathrooms, known as \”his\” and \”her\” sinks. This is sure to not only give homeowners a more luxurious feel but also added functionality.
Add Toilet Features
When a homeowner chooses a different toilet for a bathroom remodel, they now have more features to decide from.
Some added perks homeowners can look for include:
- Heated seats
- Dual flushing modes
- Self-flushing sensors
There will always be the standard toilets available coming in standard heights and efficiencies. However, by adding a more modern commode, homeowners can add value and comfort to their bathroom more easily than ever.
Don\’t Forget Showers and Tubs
When choosing a new shower or tub, the possibilities are endless. From standard tubs to garden tubs and corner showers to custom tile showers, the sky’s the limit. There are even some showers that feature seating for the disabled. When a homeowner chooses what works best for their new shower or tub, the location of where it goes is key.
The more room homeowners have to work with, the better, but a slim-designed corner shower can fit almost any bathroom, even in tight quarters. If space isn’t a factor, custom tile showers can be exquisite. This also gives a homeowner complete control over the design and features. They can choose the overall size, benches, recessed storage areas, and shower heads. A professional can help design and build the perfect shower for any homeowners\’ bathroom remodel.
