If you’re tired of the overall look of your bathroom, one of the easiest ways to fix the design without a complete demolition is to beautify the bath with a shower makeover. There are several options for a shower remodel depending on your family’s needs and budget. As you get started, here are some considerations to make the plunge into the shower design process less stressful…
Are You Looking to Replace or Refinish?
For smaller budgets, a simple update of the shower stall, walls, and fixtures may be all you need to refresh the look of your bath. There are a variety of materials, colors, and shower systems available to bring your ideas to life. If your shower is old, moldy, and not enjoyable to use, then you may want to consider a full replacement. If this is the case, then look at the pros and cons of the current shower and make a list of things you would like to change. Would you like more shelving built into the shower walls? Do you have space to enlarge the shower stall? Is a combination tub and shower more in line with what your family needs? Depending on your budget and usage needs, there are also a variety of enclosures and door types for you to choose from: frameless or framed with chrome, brushed nickel, or oil rubbed bronze. The type of glass can also add to the overall beauty of the bath; textured glass, clear, and opaque are all options to consider.
Don’t Move the Plumbing
To keep costs down, look at how the pipes and plumbing are built-in to the space. It’s in your best interest to keep the plumbing in the same location, as moving it will drive up the cost considerably.
What Are Your Budget and Top Priorities for Your Project?
It’s key to present your budget range to your contractors before getting started. In terms of design features, prioritize your must-haves with your nice-to-haves. Being transparent will help drive important decisions on overall design, materials, and finishes.
Warning… Don’t Go It Alone!
To keep the remodeling process running smoothly, make sure to choose contractors who are trusted experts in both shower replacement and remodeling, and who are also known for excellent customer service, high quality products, and top-notch installation.
