Bathroom Remodel: The Details Are In The Fixtures
If you’re looking to transform your bathroom from dreadful to delightful, there are a few details to consider when planning a bathroom remodel. There are numerous options to choose from when deciding to redo your bathroom, so it is always best to understand the finer details of the remodeling fixtures that are on offer.
A bathroom remodel can be as simple as replacing a faucet, or as complicated as deciding to add a new claw tub, so let’s discuss what these different options mean for you and your bathroom needs.
Choosing the right shower head is important as the various types can serve a very different purpose. Let’s evaluate the different types of shower heads you can choose from:
- Hand-Held Shower Head
This type of shower head allows you to remove the nozzle from its base and gives the ability to control where the spray goes.
- Rain Shower Head
This will provide full coverage as it is directly above your head and aims to create a waterfall effect.
- Body Sprays
These are exactly as they sound, and are placed throughout your shower giving you the feeling of a full body massage.
- Low-Flow Shower Head
This type of shower head is water-saving and will not only provide you with a satisfying spray but save both water and money in the process.
Although these days people are finding it increasingly difficult to find time to take baths, it is often something you should still consider adding to at least one bathroom in the house. This is especially true if you are Thinking of reselling your home or if you have kids. Let’s look at the different tub styles when considering your bathroom remodel:
- Claw Tub
This type of tub is a vintage style that stands on “feet” and usually requires a fair amount of open space around it. Since the feet add an extra height, this tub can be very deep and long which allows for maximum relaxation. The depth of this tub, however, can often be inconvenient for bathing small children.
- Corner Tub
This type of tub optimizes the space in your bathroom and is great for combining both a shower and bathtub into one. This tub is often considered to be more practical than aesthetically pleasing.
This type of tub is the ultimate luxury addition to your bathroom remodel and is made to be deep, wide and with plenty of air jets for the best bathing experience. This tub choice can be great for those long days but is the least cost-effective.
Sinks & Faucets
The most important factors to consider when choosing which type of sink and faucet combination to install, are: water efficiency, space saving, and aesthetic. With this in mind, you will need to decide which is more important to you: how your sink looks, or how it works?
- Vessel Sinks
This type of sink can be both aesthetically pleasing and a big space-saver, as the bowls come in various shapes and sizes. Vessel sinks can often be paired with a wall-mounted faucet to provide an even higher aesthetic appeal to your bathroom remodel. This leaves plenty of room for a cabinet addition underneath the sink for storage and to hide any pipes.
- Pedestal Sink
This type of sink is easily installed and takes up little space. It is often paired with an arching water faucet with a single handle, which conserves water and is easy to use.
- Under-Mounted Sink
This type of sink serves to be very functional in that it is less of a focal point in the bathroom and more practical. It is often lower to the ground which can be useful for small kids.
So, whether you are choosing to switch from a big bathtub to a water-saving shower, or adding an extra sink for you and your partner, these decisions can quickly turn your bathroom dreams into a nightmare if not given proper thought. When deciding on the direction you want to take to remodel your bathroom, it is important to consider the different options that are available to you. You should weigh up the pros and cons of what you think looks appealing, is a practical addition to your home, as well as what best meets your current needs.
