Best Home Remodeling And Bathroom Remodeling in Denver

by Cedric W. President of CRJ Remodeling

In many parts of the home remodel, choosing flooring mainly comes down to appearance. You want your living room, dining room, bedroom, or office flooring to look great; performance, while important, is second. With bathrooms, the  playbook changes.

When choosing bathroom remodelers, consider how it will perform under stress. And the stress event in this case involves water, lots of it. Water is so prevalent in bathrooms that it is an expectation, not an anomaly. Water is everywhere: on the walls, ceiling, and the floor. Moisture will quickly ruin the wrong flooring. To make matters even more difficult, you eventually have to pull those other factors into the dialogue. If moisture were the only factor, sheet vinyl or ceramic tile would likely win every time. But these additional factors, like durability, appearance, cost, and ease of installation, need to be considered, as well..

1. A Low-Flow, Hidden-Tank Toilet

Toilets with hidden tanks—in which the water storage vessel is mounted inside the wall—have several benefits. They are worth considering if you are remodeling a bathroom, especially a smaller bathroom, where the design can save space.

Hidden-tank toilets (sometimes called hidden cistern toilets) save you precious space, and low-flow models help save water every time you flush. It's a smart choice that increases the value of your home after the remodel. These are appropriate for all bathrooms styles, but they fit especially well in modern and contemporary decors. But be aware that routine maintenance can be difficult since there is usually no easy access to the tank if the inner workings need attention.

Another style of tankless toilet uses a pressure valve, such as those often found in commercial settings or public bathrooms. These are also options, although such toilets are noisy and tend to give a bathroom a somewhat industrial feel.

 

2.Small, Textured Tile Shower Floor

You'll have tons of flooring, wall and tile choices to make during your bathroom remodel. The most important for safety will be the floor tiling of your shower.

Choose a small, textured shower tile. The texture and the extra grouting will keep your feet from slipping once the floor gets soapy and wet. Most modern bathroom tiles are easy to clean and they use grouts that resist mold, humidity, and stains.

Ceramic and porcelain tiles give you many style and decor possibilities. Mix and match different patterns and colors for maximum visual impact, or do something more understated for a harmonious look. 

3.Install a Tub Only if You Actually Take Baths

Too many people add a tub to their bathrooms just because they feel like they "should." But a bathtub is not always a necessity, especially if you never take baths. While there are still real estate professionals who argue that a bathroom with a tub offers greater appeal to prospective buyers than one with just a shower, this is much less true for today's buyers than it once was.

And your major concern should be with how  are going to use the room for the next few years. If you love baths, then, by all means, include it in your remodel. But if you rarely, if ever, take baths, you may be much better off installing just a large shower. A bathtub is indeed more appealing to future buyers who may have children. But if your house includes another family bathroom that does have a tub or tub/shower combination, there is no reason why your master bath can't omit the bathtub in favor of a luxurious shower. Of course, if you have a large bathroom, you get probably include both without worrying too much about space. But if you have to choose, you should always go with what is most functional for you at this time. And that may mean leaving the bathtub out of your plans.

4.Include a Window in the Shower

One of the biggest enemies of a clean bathroom is the humidity that stays trapped in the space because of bad or insufficient ventilation. Although a good bathroom fan will make a big difference, the best ventilation is always natural ventilation.Adding a window in your shower is going to help keep your bathroom clean and free of mold and mildew.

 The natural ventilation is effective, especially if you leave the bathroom door open after using it. A window also benefits a shower by letting in natural light, which both an aesthetic and safety consideration.Discuss the appropriate type of window with your architect or contractor, but remember to slope the sill downwards so that water doesn't get stuck, and use frosted glass for privacy.

5.Add a Recessed Medicine Cabinet

Get more storage space and a sleeker look with a recessed medicine cabinet above the vanity. By installing it a few inches inside the wall, you save yourself some needed space and make your bathroom look sleeker and more modern. The extra wall framing job doesn't usually cost much in the grand scheme of a full bathroom renovation.This is especially useful when your vanity is on the shallower side: You give yourself extra space to bend over and use the sink by using a recess in the wall. There are fewer worries about banging your head on the edge of the mirror.

6.Improve the Lighting

Bathrooms tend to have little access to natural light, hence the need for excellent lighting. As you plan your bathroom remodel, consider changing or adding to your current lighting to improve the functionality and mood of the space.Add recessed fixtures around the mirror to give you the best lighting possible when doing your hair, applying make-up, or,shaving—or any other task that requires lots of light.
