Remodeling your bathroom is a great way to add value to your home. Homeowners are upgrading bathrooms and installing heated floors, soaker tubs and large airy showers to create a comfortable spa like setting that they can enjoy after a long hard day. Optic fiber lighted tiles are a great way to add a unique touch to showers. All of this must start with a well planned design.
Before you begin on your remodeling project, pre-planning is a must. Your material selections can make or break a good design. Have an overall vision of what you want, our job is to take your vision and help you create a design that you can enjoy for the years to come.
Choose fixtures that are pleasing to look at but are also energy efficient, for instance toilets and shower heads can save you up to 70% on water usage. Low flow units may have a higher price then the standard units but you will save in the long run.
Choosing appropriate surfaces do more than just contribute to the overall aesthetic. They also take lots of abuse. Natural stone like Travertine have a soft feel but take more maintenance to keep up. Porcelain tile is a great choice for use on the floors and walls alike. You can find some variations of porcelain in the $5 per square foot range that look like natural stone. Larger tile help minimize grout lines and is easier to upkeep.
Low or no threshold showers are becoming more popular. Incorporating a linear drain system recessed shampoo niches and built in bench are just a few ways to upgrade your shower.
