Bathroom Remodeling:Showers and Tubs
Bathroom remodeling could possibly be a daunting task, much so if you didn’t make a vivid plan ahead. 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 help in providing you with a more functional bathroom by freeing a good amount of space.
When it all boils down to choosing showers and tubs, there are a plethora of options the market has to offer besides the standard walk-in shower or your average step in tub. 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 self-enclosed shower systems that produces water mist which it then turns into steam by the use of its built in steam generator. Electronic temperature control can be commonly found in most modern steam showers, they also come in with fancier features such as foot massagers, jets, ceiling rain functionalities, radio, an mp3 player, and even a telephone. Amazingly, all these features can be installed in your bath and take up the same amount of space as your run of the mill walk-in shower.
Clawfoot tubs have existed for years already, but modern ones have great features that allows it to still be a good choice for your remodeled bath. Modern Clawfoot tubs are lighter and a lot more economical as they are made out of acrylic as opposed to the older ones being made out of cast iron. 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.
A walk-in tub is perfect for those who are concerned with the safety of stepping into traditional bathtubs. Walk-in tubs have a different means of entry by having a water-tight door that opens and closes, providing easy 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.
