When a homeowner is in the enviable position of being able to do a bathroom remodel, it can be difficult to know where to start. The options are limited only by the homeowner’s imagination and, of course, their budget. Be sure to surf the Internet and make a list of the amenities, features and designs that suit you best. Here are a few bathroom remodel ideas:
1. Install a Skylight
A skylight will flood an upstairs or attic bathroom with an abundance of natural light. Though a dedicated DIYer can put in a simple skylight, installation is best left to our professionals at Copper Creek Construction. That way, a customer knows that the skylight has been installed according to code and in a way that keeps out precipitation. Only light and air get through our skylights!
2. Benefit from the Effects of Different Types of Glass
Even the glass in the bathroom doesn’t need to be plain or boring. Sanded glass doors can be installed in cabinets, giving just a hint of what’s on the cabinet shelves. Glass block windows in a roomy shower give the area a touch of elegance. The customer can even opt for colorful glass tiles for backsplashes or for tub or shower surrounds.
3. Add Radiant Heat
Heated floors can spare the members of the family mornings of bare feet on chilly floors. The best type of radiant heat is provided by heated water that flows through channels installed beneath the floor. Customers who have radiant heat installed describe it as a singularly decadent sensation that they can no longer live without!
4. Install Cantilevered Sinks
This is a good solution if the bathroom to be remodeled is small and the vanity is shallow. Cantilevered sinks are a type of hybrid between an apron sink and a vessel sink. These types of sinks are partly recessed into the top of the vanity with half of their bowls projecting out over the floor. Unlike vessel sinks, the faucets don’t need to be rearranged in the wall because the top of the bowl is too high for a traditional faucet.
5. Get Some Entertainment in There
There’s nothing that says a customer can’t watch the morning news or listen to his or her favorite radio station while they’re in the bathroom. There are waterproof TVs and radios that are built to be operated safely and not damaged by the bathroom’s high humidity.
6. Purchase Some Vintage Furniture
A remodel doesn’t always need to make the bathroom look new; some individuals deliberately make the bathroom look as if it were in a different time. A customer shouldn’t be afraid to search around salvage places for wooden cabinets that are a bit distressed, antique mirror frames and old kitchen tables that can be converted into vanities.
7. Have Fun With Concrete During Your Bathroom Remodel
Concrete is an amazingly versatile material that can be stained, dyed, polished and stamped. Concrete can be used for flooring, but it doesn’t have to be dull and gray. It can be made to mimic just about everything from classic marble to wood.
