Tips To Update And Remodel Your Bathroom Space


Your home's bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in your home. The bathroom gets used on a daily basis, where moisture and humidity are a factor that can damage and deteriorate the fixtures, finishes, and appliances within the room. All this extra use and wear will leave your bathroom needing some updating and repairs, which can open a window of opportunity to make some changes that are custom to your home. Here are some recommendations to help you and a contractor update and maintain your home's bathroom and make it a smart and useful space.

Update Lighting

The lighting in your bathroom is an important feature, especially if you need good lighting to get yourself ready in the morning. Good lighting that is energy efficient, such as LED lighting, and does not heat up your space unnecessarily, is a way you can improve your bathroom. Consider installing a front lighted LED vanity mirror for your bathroom. This creates bright and even lighting to illuminate yourself.

Install New Fixtures

The fixtures in your bathroom can equally become worn and outdated. Updating the fixtures and shower head in your shower can improve the space's appearance and give you a better bathing experience. Items such as an overhead rain shower head will provide a generous amount of spray for showering. 

Also, look at removing your old vinyl shower insert and replacing it with a more durable decorative tile to match your floors. You can ask your contractor to build recessed shower niches for your shower supplies within the tile shower walls.

Replace Flooring 

The old vinyl or laminate flooring in your bathroom is not built to withstand years of wear and tear and will need to be replaced. However, when you tear out your old vinyl flooring, you can install a heated flooring to help keep your feet warm and make bathing more comfortable, especially since tile is a great waterproof option though can be a cold surface. 

By installing a floor heating system you can make the bathroom more inviting to your bare feet. Talk to your contractor about adding this feature to your bathroom. You can have an adjustable thermostat that you can control with your smartphone or a wall unit to make warming the space more convenient. Then, your layer of durable tile will make the bathroom look attractive and will be water-resistant and long-lasting.
