Bathroom Remodeling

One of the first rooms people tackle when they decide to remodel their home is the bathroom. It is a smaller - more tangible - area to cover than, for example, a kitchen or living room. A bathroom has the smallest square footage and overall should be a cheaper investment. Here are a few bathroom remodeling ideas if you are in the market for renovation...

walk-in showers are becoming more and more popular because of their easy use and comfort. They come with many customized option during installation. For example, the shower door, foot rest, shampoo and soap caddies, seat, and hand heal shower spout are all options you have with a walk-in shower. This type of shower is especially useful for the elderly or physically impaired because they are known for their safety, and often include a seat with a hand held shower spout.

Whirlpool baths are just an absolute luxury to have in any bathroom. Who wouldn't want to replace their old tub with a custom air bathtub or whirlpool tub? You can customize your new tub with the lights, jets, neck rests, and heaters of your choice. This upgrade is great for master bathrooms.

bathtub Liners are a different approach to remodeling your bathroom. A liner goes over your existing tub and can be easily removed or replaced later without damaging any walls or flooring. They are installed quickly and can have your bathroom looking different in just one day. However, this option is not the best choice for everyone. If you have water damage, a flimsy tub, or a one piece fiberglass tub, then your best option is to replace what you have with new.

Vanities are always a nice addition, no matter if it is the guest or master bathroom. There are many different custom options for vanities. Units may include custom drawers, cabinetry, counter tops, sinks, faucet and cabinet hardware, lighting, storage racks, rollout storage options, mirrors, and more. Some people may choose a to have a place to push a vanity chair under the vanity counter. The counter top alone has a full list of upgrade options. Granite and quarts are just two of the popular countertop choices.

Just like walk-in showers, walk-in bathtubs are another safe and easily accessible product. This remodeling upgrade is appreciated by those that want to take a bath, but have difficulty entering the tub itself. A walk-in bath has a door that opens so you can walk into the bath and sit down. They also have places to sit in the tub so that you can sit in a more comfortable, upright position.
