Bathroom remodeling has become a tremendous movement everywhere. It is a very lucrative enterprise these days for interior designers and enjoyable activity for anyone searching for a new look for powder rooms wherever you may happen to live in the world!
When remodeling your bathroom, be sure to attend to first things first. An important consideration of renovating a bathroom is the size and shape of the room. The way the plumbing runs through the room must be one of the first things taken into consideration for obvious reasons. It makes all the difference when deciding where to install your new bathtub and sink. But, you will find, there is always a way. Just as important, and a serious “must” to bathroom remodeling, is to employ a good contractor that offers you the best advice and help to direct you in the most cost efficient and beneficial direction.
The best way to go when you have made that all-important remodeling decision would be to choose your largest item, your stand alone bathtub, first. Every item you want for the room after your bathtub purchase is made can be selected according to the style of the tub you have decided upon. There is a style of the bathtub that will blend well with any design you have chosen for your room. No matter what your favorite genre, you will find a freestanding soaker tub to match. From there you can “dress up” the rest of the room to your heart’s content.
If you are going to demolish the bathroom from top to bottom, from “soup to nuts” so to speak, and your bathtub will be your first big purchase, think about this, it will help to give you some direction; consider making your new tub the focal point of the room, and use it as the item around which you make all your decorating decisions.
The soaker tub is a type of bathing equipment that has grown in popularity in recent times. It tends to run deeper than a traditional bathtub so that the bather can quickly immerse him or herself entirely in the water for a complete soaking experience. Hence the name “soaker tub”. Nowadays these are often freestanding bathtubs that will be installed in the center of the room, although they can be placed along a wall or in a corner as well. If you prefer a tub that can be installed along a wall in your bathroom or a corner of the room, you will most likely have your new faucets and piping initiated into the wall above the top of the bathtub. You can choose the option of including a shower feature with the hardware, or not.
If you have decided to rebuild your newly decorated bathroom into a haven of peace and comfort, you can pick a bathtub to reflect those perceptions. You can install a new, free standing soaker tub right into the center of your bathroom, a soaking bathtub if that is your preference. You can choose a tub with a pedestal bottom, claw-foot legs, or any number of different types of bases. Hardware is sold separately and comes in a wide variety of different styles. If you want your bathroom to reflect more contemporary flavor, there are any number of accessories to be utilized. A freestanding soaker tub with a flat base would work very well with brushed nickel faucets that are installed into the floor at the head of the tub itself. You can choose to have a hand shower head included with your hardware package as well. Pick out a pedestal sink of the same color and style as your new tub and you can even match the faucets and hardware. With a freestanding soaking tub, you can choose to install a shower rack and add accessories that will reflect the genre and colors you have chosen.
Many people have begun to adorn their powder rooms with flowers and candles. They go well with any bathtub of any color. Place shelving conveniently on the wall to hold towels and other bathroom paraphernalia. Soft lighting will also make a statement and serve to add a calmness to bath time. A bath time “must have” will be the option of purchasing a tub with jets along the walls that will emit warm air into the bath water, creating a whirl of bubbles that give off a massaging effect.
Bathtubs can be matched with many different varieties of faucets and hardware. There are various styles that can be purchased in whatever finish you choose. In addition, the equipment can be placed at the foot of the tub, at the head of the tub, even at the center of the container. It can be installed on the bathroom floor, into a bathroom wall above the tub, or even into the tub itself, which would involve a little bit of drilling.
Although the remodeling of a bathroom is a tremendous task to take on, it will reap great rewards when, upon completion, your bathroom has become a work of art.
