One of the most exciting rooms in your house to remodel is the bathroom. The bathroom has so much potential for extended enjoyment depending on how you decide to outfit it.
Los Angeles Bathroom Remodeling
There has been a huge push recently in the home market of Los Angeles to make the master bathroom the central focus for the homeowner. It stands to reason that you should take the time to really plan out this awesome opportunity for remodeling your bathroom.
The worst thing a homeowner can do is choose to build out a new room and decide after it’s finished that you wanted something else to fill the space.
Advice on Remodeling your Bathroom
My first piece of advice is to research all of the options for outfitting the space before you hire a contractor. Once you know the options that can be done to outfit your space, make a list of the pieces you really want to take advantage of. By knowing what you want from the beginning it makes the building process much smoother and it helps to keep the costs down.
One piece of new bathroom equipment that you have to look at installing is a steam shower. The steam shower doesn’t take up any more room than your existing shower but you can use the same space for dual purposes, a shower and a steam room.
The space where your existing shower was can be sealed from floor to sealing with a new glass enclosure to serve multiple purposes, both to keep the steam trapped in the shower and to add a great new look for the space already in use.
Luxury Bathroom Remodeling
Anytime you can add more glass to your bathroom it gives the appearance of luxury and the open look your bathroom needs to appear larger in size.
The best way to maximize your already existing bathroom space is to see what can be replaced without forfeiting any floor space. If at all possible it’s a great idea to contact your contractor before you plan to shop for new upgrades so you can see if it’s cost effective to knock out an existing wall to make room for larger bathroom pieces like a Jacuzzi tub or a “his and hers” sink combination.
An enclosed toilet is always a great idea as well, it keeps the rest of the bathroom separate from the toilet and it adds a bit of much needed privacy for its users.
