10 Ways to Upgrade the Look and Feel of Your Bathroom
You will need to take several steps to upgrade the look and feel of your bathroom, and you likely will need to work with a plumbing company for assistance with this type of project.
Plumbing fixtures are generally permanent or built into your home, and a professional plumber can help you to improve the space by assisting you with these permanent features. Consider some of these ideas for your bathroom as you get ready to update your space.
Change the Layout of Your Space
In many bathrooms, it can seem like you are stuck with the current configuration, but you may not have a functional configuration. For example, you may not like the location of the sinks or bathtub.
While it may seem as though you have no choice but to work with these features as they are, the fact is that a plumber can help you to change the layout by relocating the built-in features for you. The sky is the limit with regards to the placement of your features when you work with a plumber.
Move or Add Walls
Many homeowners would like to have an open, airy bathroom, but you also need privacy in certain areas. You may consider placing the sinks and counters toward the front of the bathroom.
You may move or add walls to create privacy around the bathtub and shower. After all, if someone walks in, you do not want them to see you. You can also relocate the toilet into a water closet for added privacy.
Upgrade Your Plumbing Fixtures
Your bathroom’s overall look and feel will be dictated largely by the look of the plumbing fixtures. Their style and finish are critical in this area, and you will want to pay extra attention to them.
Remove outdated features, such as the bathtub that came with the house. Select modern features that have the style that you prefer. For a truly comprehensive remodeling project, you may need to replace everything from the faucets and knobs to the toilet, sink and bathtub.
The effort required to remodel a bathroom typically will require you to work with various plumbing features, but you do not want to attempt to work on plumbing in your home on your own.
A smart idea is to speak with a plumber about your design ideas and to continue to work with that plumber until your remodeling project is complete.
