The first course of action when planning a bathroom remodel is to look realistically at the existing space. Is this to be your retirement home or will you be moving a few years down the road? If the answer is the former, you may want to pursue what has become known as universal design, no matter what your current capabilities are at present. The idea has become so mainstream that the fear of ending up with an institutional look is not an issue. The concept combines large shower stalls that have zero-thresholds and built-in benches. The toilets are elevated, comfort-height models and are as common as standard height models.
Bathrooms are similar to kitchens in that many trades get involved with the remodeling process including plumbers, tile layers, electricians, and carpenters. Bathroom renovations are best accomplished by the experts because this is one room of the house where if the work is sub-par you will be reminded of it every day. Your bathroom renovation is in good hands with a Bathroom Remodeling Company such as American Bath Inc. A contractor dedicated to bathroom remodels ensures your renovation is in the best hands.
A remodeling company that encourages homeowners to choose their lighting and plumbing fixtures, sinks, cabinets, tub, and even hardware, from an outside source, saves the homeowner money in the long haul. Because of this, the contractor does not maintain an inventory, a warehouse, or a showroom all of which results in overhead which is typically passed on to the client.
One way to keep renovation costs at a minimum is to keep the plumbing fixtures in the same location when possible to save costs on rerouting plumbing. Interior designers and real estate professionals say the feature to splurge on with a bathroom remodel is the shower. A luxurious shower is at least, 4-by-6-feet and even better is one that is 5-by-7-feet. Consider incorporating water-efficient shower heads, with many models producing exhilarating rain shower settings. For the ultimate bathroom retreat, consider having the Bathroom Remodeling Company install a programmable shower system that has easy-to-use digital controls so that everyone in the household can pre-set their personal water temperature, pressure, and even the choice of spray. A waterproof digital control panel mounts on the shower wall for easy access.
