One of the most important rooms in a home, besides the kitchen, is the bathroom. It is used multiple times throughout the day and night and in many cases, by more than one person. Showers are an all important feature in most homes and condominiums and having one that works well and looks good is important and if it’s not, you may find you are in need of bathroom shower remodeling to address any concerns.
Older homes, especially frame houses, can have a multitude of problems requiring bathroom shower remodeling. Problems can range from old plumbing, old style bathtubs with no shower, vinyl bathtubs and shower units that have deteriorating caulk and stains to leaky shower heads and fixtures. Upgrading and remodeling this type of bathroom can be an extensive and time consuming undertaking and will most likely require the services of a good contractor. The benefit of bathroom shower remodeling in an older home is that it will bring the bathroom up-to-date which adds an increased value to its worth.
Newer homes may already have current and up-to-date features but may be in need of additional bathroom shower remodeling. In some instances, an existing bathtub that is not used can be removed and the additional space can be used to provide a larger shower area. To give a bland shower a more elegant look, consider replacing the existing tile with more decorative ceramic tile. Redesigning the showers overall look is also an option and can be accomplished with new tile, adding a ceramic seat or shelves, adding frosted shower doors for privacy and purchasing high-end fixtures for the shower. For a more open looking bathroom, add sliding doors to a bathtub/shower combination versus using a shower curtain. Additional bathrooms, with a shower only, can be added to the home which also increases its selling value. Homes that have swimming pools may also have a bathroom area that is in need of bathroom shower remodeling.
Most bathroom shower interior design remodeling projects need a professional contractor who specializes in plumbing and tile work while other smaller, less involved projects, such as changing shower faucets and fixtures or installing shower doors, can be considered as diy bathroom remodeling. Unless you are experienced in and have the proper tools and equipment for installing new or replacing old piping, have the means to remove and dispose of large fixtures such as bathtubs and have the resources for cutting tile, it is best to hire a bonded and licensed contractor to do the work.
Overall, quality bathroom shower remodeling will serve to enhance the look of your home, provide up-to-date and efficient equipment, modernize older homes and upgrade and increase the value of the home.
