Showers and Tubs Choices In Bathroom Remodeling
Remodeling one’s bathroom may seem to be a pretty major job, especially if you don’t haven’t made a comprehensive plan ahead of time. But before making any plans for remodeling your bathroom, it is a good idea for you to explore the various options the market has to offer and pinpoint the things that you want your bathroom to have.
For when you currently have a shower/tub combination setup in your bathroom but you find that you rarely use the tub, so you might want to consider having a walk-in shower installed instead. This will free up a good amount of space which will make your bathroom a whole lot more functional.
In terms of your showers and tubs, the market is filled with options that makes your walk in shower or step in tub look like child’s play. Some of the newer and luxurious entries in our modern era of showers and tubs include clawfoot bathtubs, walk-in tubs, and steam showers.
Steam showers will provide you with the luxury of having a personal spa inside your very own home. Steam showers are self-enclosed shower systems that produces water mist which it then turns into steam by the use of its built in steam generator. Electronic temperature control can be commonly found in most modern steam showers, they also come in with fancier features such as foot massagers, jets, ceiling rain functionalities, radio, an mp3 player, and even a telephone. What’s even more amazing is that you can have all these installed and still consume the same amount of space as your regular shower.
Clawfoot tubs have existed for years already, but modern ones have great features that allows it to still be a good choice for your remodeled bath. Clawfoot tubs of our age are no longer made of cast iron and are now made out of acrylic which makes the modern tubs lighter and cost effective. Clawfoot tubs are a good choice in giving your remodeled bathroom that vintage look. There is an abundance of designs for you to choose from and also a number of fixtures for you to mix and match with, giving you with a wide range of personalization options for your bath.
A walk-in tub is perfect for those who are concerned with the safety of stepping into traditional bathtubs. Walk-in tubs eliminate the potential risk that comes from stepping into doors by having a water-tight door as means of entry.
So even if a full bathroom remodeling is out of your budget, a shower or tub remodeling can provide a pretty dramatic change in your bathroom especially when your current shower or tub doesn’t quite suit your needs.
