When the bathroom gets crowded weird stuff can happen. Cell phones end up in the toilet, toothbrushes get knocked in the trash and things just get messy! This isn’t a problem that only applies to small bathrooms either. Even adequate space can be cumbersome when it’s not laid out properly. No matter what the issue is, too small, bad design or both we can help you.
When a bathroom remodel is done properly it can provide years of pleasure and comfort. If corners are cut and a more amateur approach is taken it will serve as a reminder every day. There are lots of moving parts in the bathroom and a large volume of water use with potential for leaks. Here are some good ideas for a bathroom remodel.
Plan for the unexpected:
Hidden water damage is common in bathrooms. Leaky showers or running toilets can leave your floor feeling spongy. That’s a good sign of serious water damage. We’ll make certain to do exploratory work to find any issues that exist, ahead of time.
What’s on the surface?
It’s more than just looks when it comes to bathroom surfaces. They’ll take a lot of abuse as well. Porcelain tile is a nice choice for durability. You might consider using larger tile sizes as well, to minimize grout lines.
Shower yourself with the best:
Baths are great for children but the trend is leaning toward big luxurious shower spaces with big glass doors. If you plan on selling your home at any time in the future, then make sure you don’t eliminate the tub if it’s the only one in the house.
Showerheads, toilets and faucets are much more water efficient. You’ll save on energy costs and help preserve a vital natural resource.
If you plan on staying in your home as you get older, as the new catch phrase calls it “aging in place”, then you may want to create a bathroom that can help with aging problems. Wet rooms – the entire bathroom can get wet, first floor baths, wheelchair access or walk-in tubs are a great idea that can be installed and used now and in the future.
