One of the rooms in our homes that often goes neglected is the bathroom. Most of the time, we just think of the bathroom as a functional space, and worry less about form. As long as we have the necessities – toilet, tub and sink – our bathroom pretty much serves its purpose. But did you know that an old bathroom could be costing you in efficiency? Not only that, remodeling your bathroom can increase your home’s value and can help you create a peaceful oasis in your home.
Let’s face it – in today’s world, it’s often difficult to find a few moments to ourselves. When we use the bathroom, it gives us a snippet of alone time. Why not make your bathroom a place where you can escape, relax and enjoy a few moments of peace and quiet.
Bathroom remodeling projects done right will help your house become more comfortable for you to live in.
More and more people are accomplishing this by remodeling their bathroom so that it provides a spa experience right in their own home. Today, there are many different types of bath and shower systems available, such as whirlpool bathtubs and showers with multiple wall-mounted body sprays. Add to that rich, new tile designs, lighting and flooring options and water-efficient toilets and bath fixtures, and it might seem like a pretty good time for a bathroom remodeling project.
When you choose to remodel your bathroom, you’ll want to consider hiring a general contractor. They have access to all the people and provisions you’ll need throughout the project. You certainly will require a plumber, but you may also need the services of a carpenter, HVAC professional, flooring installer and interior designer, depending on the scope of your project. Not to mention, a general contractor will help you manage deadlines and will be the person doing the day-to-day legwork, so you can relax while your bathroom remodel is taking place.
Please note – if you don’t have more than one bathroom in your home, you might want to consider staying over at a friend’s or relative’s for a couple of days while the rest facilities are being installed. Generally speaking, bathroom contractors understand the need for your restroom, but unexpected situations arise at times that make projects veer off schedule. Be on the safe side, and have a back up plan for toileting and bathing.
