Want A New Bathroom To Go With The New Year? Tips To Get You Started

Now that the new year is here, you may want to make some changes in your home. If you are starting out with your bathroom, there are many things you can do. Below are two of these things to help get you started creating your perfect bathroom.

Walk-In Shower

If you currently have a bathtub/shower, installing a walk-in shower to replace it can save you a lot of room and make the bathroom look great. There are different types of showers to choose from. For example, you can choose a shower that has multiple shower heads so that no matter how tall someone is, they can easily reach one. There are showers that have built-in steam generators so you can feel like you are at a spa when taking a shower.

Once you choose the walk-in shower that you want, you have to choose a shower enclosure. Some types that you can choose from include:

  1. Swinging doors: Swinging doors are also known as pivot doors. They swing outward on hinges that are located on top of the door. They offer a modern and clean look for your bathroom.
  2. Hinged doors: This type of shower enclosure is generally used if your shower is at an angle, such as in a corner. You can choose hinged doors that swing out or in. They also have hinges, but make sure the hinges are sealed to prevent leaks. 

Talk with a contractor about installing a walk-in shower for you, and they can give you more information to help you choose what would work best for you.

New Flooring

If you have had your current bathroom flooring in some time, you should consider installing new flooring to give your bathroom an updated look. It is important, however, that you choose the right type of flooring, as it needs to be resistant to water and durable.

Ceramic tile would be a good choice, as it is waterproof and cost-effective. There are a variety of colors and designs to choose from, so you can make a unique floor and make it look exactly like you want.

Vinyl is another option you have, and it is popular with many people. This is because it is inexpensive, and, in many cases, you can install vinyl tiles on your own. You also have thousands of color and style options to choose from.

If you think you will have a large amount of water falling on your floor, such as if children use your bathroom, sheet vinyl flooring is a good choice because there are no seams.

Once you decide on the type of shower and the flooring you want, consider other design options, such as the type of vanity and faucets, the toilet, and mirrors.
