Six Ways to Remodel Your New Home’s Bathroom
Monday, 23 November 2015, 09:20:00 AM

If you are moving into a home, then it is essential to update the bathroom to make it look its best. The best way to remodel a bathroom is to make all of the upgrades at once because it is less inconvenient. While contractors remodel a bathroom, they must turn off water to the area, and by having all of the fixtures replaced at the same time, you will only need to stay in a hotel for a few days. Here are a few of the changes that are necessary to make a bathroom look up-to-date. 

One: Replacing the Plumbing Located Behind Walls

An older home needs to have its bathroom plumbing fixtures replaced to prevent leaks that damage materials such as drywall, insulation and electrical wiring. Small drips of moisture inside wall spaces can lead to mold growth that is a health hazard. If you suspect that water pipes and connectors are leaking, then contractors must tear away the walls to replace these devices. This means removing tiles from the bathroom’s walls along with tearing out sink cabinets and toilets. To replace all of the plumbing fixtures, the contractors must gut the bathroom first.

Two: Installing New Toilets

Toilets are probably the most used fixture inside a home but is often the device that homeowners replace last because it is not considered glamorous. If your bathroomolder home has an ancient toilet without any special features, then consider upgrading to a device that is attractive and more functional. To save water, choose a low-flow model, and select from features such as automatic flushing, warmed seats or toilets with gripping bars on the sides that are helpful for infirm individuals. 

Three: Top-Of-The-Line Bathtubs

There is nothing more relaxing in a home than a comfortable bathtub, and today, there are many designs available. You can choose from freestanding models that are perfect for large bathrooms or a home with a rustic bathroom decor. Homeowners may want a huge soaking bathtub that makes it easy for more than one person to recline in the fixture. Alternatively, there are new bathtub designs that feature chairs on the inside or grab bars to prevent falling on slippery surfaces. 

Four: New Bathroom Sink Designs

No matter whether you need a tiny sink for a powder room located underneath a stairway or a huge sink in a master bedroom’s bathroom, there are numerous beautiful designs to choose from for a home. There are an assortment of colors and shapes available including, round, square and oval to complement the other decor inside a bathroom. You can also choose specialized faucets that are low-flow or that have handles designed for individuals with mobility issues. 

Five: Attractive Bathroom Storage Space

Old-fashioned bathrooms were not designed with enough storage space for all of the items needed for health, beauty and cleaning purposes, but a contractor can create a design with more closets, cabinets and shelves. It is possible to have shelves installed near bathtubs, toilets or sinks. Homeowners might prefer having under the sink cabinets that have drawers instead of doors. 

Six: Extra Features to Make a Bathroom Safer

When you are planning a bathroom remodel, make sure to request a ceiling exhaust fan to remove humidity to prevent mold on surfaces. Choose materials, including paint and wallpaper that are resistant to growing mold and creating mildew odors. Select floor tile that is slip proof to prevent falls on wet surfaces. This is a good time to install safety features such as grab bars on walls that are located near bathtubs and toilets to help senior citizens remain independent.
