Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Homeowners tend to shy away from remodeling projects because they are a hassle. They’re messy, inconvenient, frustrating, difficult and most of all…expensive. Bathroom Remodeling can sometimes be the worst, but it doesn’t have to be…not if you do it right. The first thing you need to do is consider why you want to remodel your bathroom.

Reasons to Consider Remodeling Your Bath

  • It looks like it has seen better days: When your bathroom is old, dingy and dirty looking you just don’t feel good going in there. If it never seems clean, then you don’t feel clean when you use it. Plus an outdated, dingy bathroom and negatively affect your home’s value.
  • It’s difficult to clean: You scrub and scrub and it just never seems to get clean. Nothing is a frustrating as continuously scrubbing and struggling to clean the bathtub and bathroom without ever getting the feeling that it is truly clean.
  • Mold and mildew: It’s not only unsightly, but is can be a health hazard as well. Mold and mildew can aggravate allergies and cause other issues. It’s bad enough to try to deal with the mold and mildew you can see, but old bathrooms can develop mold and mildew behind the wall that is just as dangerous and impossible to clean.
  • It is not safe: Possibly the worst of all is the feeling of insecurity in the bathroom. Losing the ability to safely bath yourself can be unsettling, embarrassing and depressing. Shouldn’t you feel safe and secure maneuvering in your own bathroom?

Planning to the Outcome You Desire

Now that you ‘ve identified the issues with your current bathroom, and you have decided that it’s time to take care of them, you need to visualize what you want from your new bathroom. How do you want it to look and perform? Below are some features you may want to consider when planning your new bathroom:

  • Surface Conversion: Many bathtub and shower surfaces are slippery and dangerous, and the wall systems invite the growth of mold and mildew. Consider a surface that is non-porous and mold and mildew resistant. The will prevent many of the issues and a non-slip surface can be added for an extra degree of safety and confidence.
  • Tub-to-Shower Conversions: If you would rather to not have to deal with the high wall of a bathtub, you may consider a tub-to-shower conversion. Replace that old dangerous tub with a new easy to maneuver shower.
  • Shower Pedestals/Safety Grab Bars: If you need added stability in the shower, look into a shower pedestal, bench and safety grab bars. They can offer peace of mind in moving around the shower and allow you or your loved ones to keep their bathing independence.
  • Step-Through Inserts: For homeowners with stepping over a high-sided tub wall but don’t want to sacrifice their tub, step-through inserts are a viable solution. A portion of the wall is removed and replaced with an attractive insert that provides safe, convenient access.
  • Barrier-Free Showers: For those that struggle with stepping over even the lower thresholds, or for homeowners that require wheelchair accessibility in their shower, barrier-free showers might be the best answer.
  • Walk-in Tubs: Walk-in tubs are a highly sought after option because they offer a safe, relaxing, independent bathing experience. Many walk-in tubs also come with hydro-therapy jets that can aide in relaxing any aching muscles or pains due to arthritis and other ailments.
