Bathroom Talk: How To Make Your Tiles Remarkable
If you are planning a bathroom remodel, then you may be overwhelmed with the multitude of choices that you are going to have to make. What height do you want your mirrors at? What kind of hardware do you want on your cabinets? Do you want your floors heated? The list of questions can go on and on. There are upgrades that you may choose to forego, but there are upgrades to your bathroom that you may definitely want to consider. The following upgrades discussed are perhaps the most important ones to consider, when creating your bathroom remodel plan.
One oftentimes overlooked upgrade, but a very simple one to make is to actually anchor the towel bar to the wall. Many times, the towel bar is just screwed into the dry wall and over time the weight of wet towels on the bar can cause the bar to pull away from the wall, thus causing damage. An easy solution is to actually use specialized anchoring hardware to anchor the bar to the wall in a more sturdier fashion. This installation technique will keep the towel bar more secure and will prevent wall damage down the road. A really cheap upgrade for your remodeling project.
Make sure that you include the installation of a vent fan in your bathroom upgrade. A vent fan works to shift all of that warm, moist air out of your bathroom after a steamy hot shower is taken. This move not only prevents you from having a foggy bathroom mirror, but over time that warm, moist environment can actually allow mold to grow. A vent plan is an absolutely necessary bathroom upgrade to keep your bathroom mold free.
Caulk, caulk, caulk. Caulking may seem like a tedious process and if you are not a professional contractor then it can be, but by utilizing the correct tools and having just a bit of patience, you can complete the job. Caulking is a necessary step in sealing the area around your shower, bathtub, and sinks from damage that will occur if water slips into cracks and crevices. So, take the time and caulk or make sure that your remodeling contractor is doing it for you.
Another simple upgrade, that can actually really change the look of your bathroom and not break the budget is to upgrade all of your faucets. One trip into a home improvement store will allow you to see the hundreds of choices that you now have for bathroom fixtures, including faucets. Choose the ones that fit your taste and your budget and you will be surprised at just how much it changes the overall look of your bathroom remodel.
Renovating your bathroom can be an exciting process. You may finally be getting that new look that you have literally waited years for or maybe you are actually making the changes to increase the resell value of your home. Take your time in the process and choose to complete the upgrades that you think will give you the overall look that you want for your bathroom remodel.
