Nowadays people want their bathrooms to be comfortable, inviting, stylish, even luxurious, in addition to being efficient and highly functional.
Choosing to remodel your bathroom can be a very exciting prospect. Modifying all of the inefficient details you notice every day as you go about your daily routine can make a big difference. Whether you are more concerned with form or function, choosing a custom bathroom remodel as your next project means that you will finally get to see your ideas come together.
Bathrooms used to be far more utilitarian than they are today. Nowadays people want their bathrooms to be comfortable, inviting, stylish, even luxurious, in addition to being efficient and highly functional. This can mean overhauling the whole room and redesigning the floor plan entirely, upgrading plumbing, replacing old fixtures, cabinets, toilets, new tiles and paint, adding a deluxe bathtub or shower, and making sure that there is enough ventilation so that your bathroom is not susceptible to deterioration and mold due to the heat and moisture.
Not only can a bathroom remodel make your everyday life more comfortable and enjoyable but it can also increase the value of your home.
For some homeowners, the current way that the bathroom is designed is not particularly easy to navigate or use. Changes can drastically improve your quality of life. For instance, you may have been dealing with a toilet that is too low, a bathtub or shower that is difficult to climb into and out of, or a vanity or sink that is not at the right height. Making these changes can make your life a whole lot easier. The very prospect of a custom bathroom is extremely exciting.
Some elements that you may want to consider including in your design plan:
Lighting is crucial. What is the point in revamping your bathroom if the lighting is not superb? You want to be able to see your beautiful new bathroom. There are a plethora of lighting options. You will want to choose lighting that is both useful and functional but also adds a decorative element to your deluxe new bathroom. Consider lighting for inside the shower, ceiling, inside cupboards, above the vanity, or recessed lighting. Some homeowners prefer to have as much natural light as possible and minimize the use of artificial light.
Showers and bathtub
The shower and/or bathtub will be one of the most important components of your custom bathroom. You can choose the size and shape of your shower, choose from materials like granite, porcelain, marble for tiling. Shower fixtures can be installed wherever you would like them and you can even customize your shower door. Walk-in showers can be just as relaxing as a bath if you customize them to suit your needs.
If you are thinking about a deluxe bathtub like a whirlpool or soaking tub, you have even more choices.
Many homeowners are choosing to add more safety features to their bathrooms, especially in the tub and shower, in order to minimize hazards. Bathrooms are one of the most important rooms in a house, but they can also present the most hazards. Adding grab bars that can double as towel racks are a great idea. And walk in showers that have no steps to get into can help minimize the risk of falls.
Again, there are many options when it comes to flooring. Ceramic, marble, granite, and travertine are all good options. A popular way to customize your flooring is to add a heating element to the flooring, doing away with cold tile entirely.
Scrubbing away at dirty grout lines may be what had got you thinking about needing a bathroom remodel in the first place. Many homeowners choose to improve the appeal of their bathrooms and make them more functional by forgoing tile and using stone, quartz composite, or Corrigan panels.
These are just some ideas to get you started. Undoubtedly you have plenty of your own ideas to add to the mix. A custom bathroom remodel can bring new life to your home and it is a great place to begin if you are planning other remodeling projects.
