A Room to Remodel: Your Bathroom
It’s the room that you and your guests freshen up in, so why not freshen the room up? Your bathroom is just one of the many important rooms in your home that could use some TLC. Maybe some tiling has popped out over the years or the light fixtures are outdated. Regardless of the condition of your bathroom, now is a great time to get started on your bathroom remodel. To help you, we’ve put together a list of a few features to consider updating.
Bathrooms, although cozy and sometimes elegant, serve a very basic and necessary function. Check in on your pipes to make sure that nothing is rusting, clogged or damaged in any other way. If your pipes aren’t in good condition, now would be a good time to have those replaced before you have a mess on your hands.
Next to a shower or tub, the toilet is your bathroom’s main feature. Although the functionality of a toilet hasn’t changed much over the years, there are many features to consider that could improve the look and efficiency of your bathroom. If your current toilet seems a bit too small or too large for the space, consider installing a toilet that better suits your bathroom. In the era of technology, we now have smart toilets that feature self-cleaning functions, temperature heated seats and dual flushing that permits a “lighter flush” for liquid contents. Do some research to find the one that fits your needs.
If you have a growing family, you may find yourself strapped for storage at the most inconvenient times. It may be time to reconsider your current cabinet situation to better fit your storage needs. Instead of having an open cabinet under your single sink vanity, put in drawers. This way you can store everything neatly, creating more space and ease for your busy morning routines. Have some extra wall space? Recess some shelving into the wall to create an area for easy access to your toiletries.
If your current vanity isn’t cutting it for your family’s lifestyle, it may be time for an upgrade. Perhaps you need a bigger sink, or you want to install a counter top to allow more room for your morning routine. Regardless of what you need, updating your vanity can enhance your bathroom’s overall look and utility.
Shower and/or Bathtub
Second to the toilet, a shower and/or bathtub are essential bathroom features. If you’ve noticed the floor of your shower has seen better days, it may be time to replace the tiling or consider new floor material altogether. If your bathtub is looking outdated, you can either have it refitted with a bathtub liner or have it replaced with a sleeker model.
Remodeling your bathroom is just one room to improve in your home, but it’s a great start. With today’s options, you no longer have to choose between functionality and style.
