Three Easy Ways To Upgrade Your Bathroom


Remodeling your bathroom is often necessary because it is a room that receives the most foot traffic. Usually, certain components in a bathroom will wear down, deteriorate, or break before similar components in other rooms, simply because they get used more. No matter what your reason for investing in bathroom upgrades, there can be many potential benefits. You can make your bathroom more water efficient, bring the style up to date, increase the functionality, and repair broken components. Here are three simple things to upgrade in your bathroom. These are all jobs that you can do on your own:

Replace the Shower heads

Old shower heads, even if they are working great, aren't very water efficient. If you haven't updated your shower head for several years, not only will it waste water, it might also look outdated and out of style. When shopping for a new shower head, look for a product with the WaterSense label. This is a label that the EPA puts on shower heads that use less than 2 gallons of water per minute. With a WaterSense shower head, you can reduce your water usage and enjoy some great features, without sacrificing water pressure or comfort.

Update to a Glass Shower Door

If you have a traditional, fiberglass shower basin that currently has a shower rod and curtain, you can find glass door kits. These kits are a great way to make your shower look more permanent and classy. Glass doors look much more stylish than curtains and rods. The kits are relatively easy to install. All you really need is a power drill, stud finder, and level. The rest of the supplies should be included in the door kit. This mainly a cosmetic upgrade, but it is a good idea if you want to increase the style and value of your bathroom.

Install Matching Hardware and Faucets

You can find new hardware for the sink cabinets that match with and complement your faucets. Whether you want brushed steel, bronzed metal, copper, or any other popular style, you should be able to find both faucets and cabinet hardware in a similar style. This will require some patience when shopping around, but actually installing these new components is cheap and easy. You can make your bathroom look much more coordinated with new faucets and hardware.

You will be surprised how much these small, affordable components impact the overall look and functionality of your bathroom. Contact a company like Alleva Construction, Inc for more information and assistance.
