Bathroom remodeling is an exciting process when you have the right professionals on your team. Get the most out of your bathroom by considering where you can add comfort, function, and style. Maximizing the room’s space to suit your needs will make your master bathroom one of your favorite spots in the house. Read on to learn about some of our favorite ways to upgrade a bathroom.
Add Comfort and Utility
Your first step during your bathroom remodeling is to consider your comfort and the room’s utility. Where are the best places to add convenience? What feature does your bathroom lack that you’d love to have? Whether it’s expanding your sink or adding technological upgrades, we will help you achieve every comfort your current bathroom lacks.
One of the best ways to upgrade your master bathroom vanity is to stretch the counter and add a second sink to it. Sharing a sink with someone can be inconvenient, especially if you’re both getting ready for work at the same time. A double vanity also offers both of you separate counter space, mirror space, and drawers.
Fan Timer Switches
Automate your fans with timer switches. Instead of manually needing to turn the fan off, set the timer and the fan switches itself off after the designated amount of time. You can get switches with different time increments, from five minutes to 60 minutes.
Change your master bathroom layout and add some space by incorporating a separate changing area. Many modern master bathrooms now have a changing area and closet attached for your convenience. A soft carpet, a chair or bench, and an organized area for your clothing can be just the thing to make each morning more pleasant.
While it may not get as cold in Texas as it does in the northern states, we get our fair share of temperature dips in the winter. Nobody enjoys stepping into the bathroom onto a cold floor. Treat yourself to heated bathroom floors, which incorporate a heating mat beneath your flooring to keep your feet warm. They’re also a luxury in the summer when the air conditioning is blowing just as you get out of the shower.
Upgrade the Bathing Experience
Narrow showers, poor storage space, and shallow tubs make the task of bathing less than ideal. When thinking about how to redo your shower and tub, consider some extra luxuries you can add. Good water pressure and enough room to maneuver are only the beginning of the equation.
When you want a good soak, a freestanding tub is the best choice. These tubs are popular for good reason: they offer you more room to relax at the end of a long day. They also add style along with substance to your bathroom. A freestanding tub acts as a beautiful accent in a large master bath and fits well with both modern and traditional styling.
The steam shower is at the center of a luxurious showering experience. An electric heater boils water within the wall of your shower and releases steam into the air. This gives you the benefits of a spa steam room in your own home. The steam can help relax your muscles and clear your sinuses. If you have a large walk-in shower, it’ll help keep the temperature consistent, too.
Recessed Shower Niches
When you’re remodeling your shower, we highly recommend you add recessed shower niches. These niches give you handy places to store your toiletries so they aren’t sitting on the edge of the tub. Niches also remove the need for suction-cup storage solutions that clutter the sleek look of your shower. We can help you plan the location of the niches so they’re in the most convenient spot.
Update the Style
The difference between a good and a great master bath is the styling. You’re not doing a master bathroom remodel only to give yourself more space and utility in the bathroom. You also want the new bathroom to look elegant. The colors and textures you bring into your bathroom will make it feel both comfortable and luxurious. You spend time in the bathroom every morning while you get ready for your day, and every evening before bed. Give yourself something appealing to look at and transform this room into one you enjoy being in.
You don’t need to limit your bathroom lighting to traditional overhead and vanity lights. A trend we love involves adding unique fixtures like chandeliers and wall sconces to the master bath. Multiple light sources will help soften the bathroom lighting, enhancing your appearance in the mirror and making it easier to use every corner of the bathroom. Chandeliers and sconces can evoke old luxury or modern charm depending on what you select.
Nothing is as timeless as marble. It elevates bathrooms from usable to chic. Install marble atop your vanity or on your floors. Marble can also be used to surround a built-in bathtub or Jacuzzi. Some daring remodels feature marble on the bathroom walls around the shower as well, to create a wet-room look and feel.
New Color Scheme
Many options exist for attractive bathroom color schemes. White is a traditional choice, but we encourage you to consider other color combinations. Ocean colors bring calm to the bathroom space, while soft yellows add cheer and brightness. Textures, like wood paneling or stone, add extra depth.
