Remodeling one’s bathroom may seem to be a pretty major job, especially if you don’t haven’t made a comprehensive plan ahead of time. But before making any plans for remodeling your bathroom, it is a good idea for you to explore the various options the market has to offer and pinpoint the things that you want your bathroom to have.
If you currently have a tub and shower combination but you find that you are not using your tub as often, you might want to consider switching it for a stand-alone walk in shower setup instead. This will free up a good amount of space which will make your bathroom a whole lot more functional.
In terms of showers and tubs, the market is flooded with various options that offer you more than just your standard step in tub or your run of the mill walk in shower. Newer and more luxurious contenders in our modern age of tubs and showers are clawfoot bathtubs, walk-in tubs, and steam showers just to name a few.
If you want the luxury and comfort of a spa right inside your very home a steam shower is a good option for you. Steam showers are an enclosed shower system that makes use of a built in steam generator that produces water mist which then turns into steam. Electronic temperature is a staple in modern era steam showers, one can even find a steam shower with other fancy features such as foot massagers, jets, ceiling rain options, radio, an mp3 player, and you can even find one with a telephone. Surprisingly enough these can easily be installed in your bath and still take up as little space as a regular shower.
Although clawfoot tubs are not a new thing for they’ve been around for years already, newer models come with new features that makes them a great option for your remodeled bath. Modern clawfoot tubs are made out of acrylic as opposed as the older ones being made from cast iron, this makes the modern tubs lighter and economical. Clawfoot tubs are a perfect option for those whou would like to give their bathroom a more vintage look. There are many designs for you to pick from and a variety of fixtures for you to mix and match with giving you a good range of personalization options.
Walk-in tubs are great for individuals who question the safety of stepping into traditional bathtubs. Walk-in Tubs have a door with a water tight seal that opens and closes allowing a safer and easier entry.
So even if a full bathroom remodeling is out of your budget, a shower or tub remodeling can provide a pretty dramatic change in your bathroom especially when your current shower or tub doesn’t quite suit your needs.
