A Beautiful, New Space

The flooring was crumbling, the wallpaper was peeling, and the appliances were malfunctioning. So I decided to begin an extensive renovation project. I installed hardwood floors, removed wallpaper, and invested in shiny stainless steel appliances for my kitchen. The results were stunning. Have you recently purchased a fixer-upper? Consider hiring a remodeling contractor to help you transform your new place into the home of your dreams. By working with a reputable remodeling contractor, your renovation will likely be less stressful and more successful.

3 Essential Updates For Your Bathroom

Your bathroom is an important part of your home, but also an important part of your family's needs. From bathing and showering to washing hands, dressing, and using the toilet, it is easy to see the importance of this space. Therefore, remodeling the bathroom to ensure it suits your style and family's needs is smart. Unfortunately, the process can be overwhelming because of all the updates you can make. Here are a few essentials to consider when updating your bathroom.

New Plumbing Fixtures

Replacing old plumbing fixtures with new models can be one of the most important updates to make during your bathroom remodel. New faucets, shower heads, and even toilets can be beneficial for a few reasons.

Available in a variety of designs and finishes, new faucets and shower heads can update an old-fashioned bathroom into a modern retreat. Of course, these new fixtures can also help the environment and your finances.

Low-flow faucets and shower heads use less water per minute, which will reduce your monthly water bills. Also, the installation of a low-flow toilet can conserve water use. Considering older toilets can use about 6 gallons of water per flush, replacing them with low-flow toilets that use between 1.2 and 1.6 gallons per flush will help conserve a great deal of water, too.

Frameless Glass Shower

Another update you should definitely consider is updating a shower to create a more open and airy look and feel in the bathroom. For example, if you have a tub and shower combination, consider removing the tub and enlarging the shower with a wraparound glass enclosure.

Tubs are not considered must-haves for homeowners today, but having a larger shower will ensure your bathroom is functional, attractive, and appealing. The large glass space will brighten up dark bathrooms and make smaller bathrooms appear larger.

Updated Mirrors

Your bathroom vanity most likely has a mirror, which may be a large piece of glass that runs the entire length of your vanity. Today, more and more homeowners and designers are replacing this large piece of glass with smaller, framed mirrors.

The framed mirrors should be installed directly over the sinks of your vanity, giving each person easy access to their own mirror. The frames add color and texture, providing your bathroom walls with a decorative, yet functional, accent.

Remodeling your bathroom does not have to be complicated. With these essentials, your bathroom remodel will be functional, appealing, and valuable for everyone in the family. Reach out to a company like BEST Kitchen and Baths to learn more.
