There are so many things that can be upgraded when it comes to remodeling your bathroom. From the ceiling to the floor there are plenty of improvements to consider. Many people stick to minimal upgrades and will replace the flooring or paint the walls, but there are many more upgrades available. Replacing tubs or installing vanities are two improvements that really enhance a bathroom. Here are some products and services to consider during the makeover process…
Whirlpool and air bathtubs are luxurious upgrades that are actually beneficial to your health. Many older people enjoy them for their health benefits as they reduce stress, relieve pains associated with arthritis, improve blood circulation and digestion, and relax muscles. Whirlpool tubs can be adjusted by temperature and speed. The number of jets and where they are located can all be custom installed by a contractor. Air bathtubs differ from whirlpools because the water is rising from the bottom, there is less pressure, the pressure is not targeted by jets, and the tub does not need to be full for the air bath to operate. The option to have a combination of air and jets is always available.
Many people crave a spacious standup shower in their bathroom, but instead have a traditional bathtub. Not to mention as you get older or if you have limited mobility, getting in and out of a bathtub can be dangerous. Matter of fact, over 200,000 people a year are sent to the hospital from slipping in the bathtub. Stand up showers are a safe and attractive choice. You can customize a stand up shower with jets, shower heads, seats, shower caddies, handrails and more. There are even tile and flooring options now that are grout free and therefore are guaranteed not to leak. This is great because they require far less maintenance as you do not have to deal with cleaning moldy grouts.
Vanities are always a nice upgrade with many different product options. You can have your vanity custom installed based on your height. There are different wood shades to choose from and countertop materials like granite or quartz. During this installation you will also have to consider what kind of sink you want along with cabinetry hardware and sink nozzle and spout hardware.
Not only are there tons of different services to consider when remodeling a bathroom, but there are even more products and styles to choose from. There are upgrades available in a full range of prices and free estimates can always be given by a contractor. You should be able to easily locate one locally online.
