If you are planning to do some upgrades to your bathroom, direct your attention to the frequently used wet areas. The wet areas of your bathroom, take the brunt of the wear as they are used multiple times throughout the day and they are exposed to oil, dirt, and water. There are several ways to remodel the wet area of your bathroom. These can include anything from small makeovers and simple replacements to a complete overhaul. The most common upgrades are walk-in-showers, converting bathtubs to showers, and replacing tubs. These remodels often require assistance from professionals like our team at American Bath. This will ensure the best results and return on your investment and a quicker turnaround time.
What’s the Wet Area?
As with any remodel, there are a few areas in the bathroom people tend to focus on. The wet areas are the ones that are exposed to water like your shower and/or bathtub. Both are exposed to varying temperatures of water daily which makes them more susceptible to become damaged over time. Upgrading these areas with higher quality, waterproof materials like porcelain, stone, premium acrylic, you can create a more functional space that will last for years to come.
Benefits of a Wet Area Remodel
There are many ways a bathroom remodel can benefit everyone in your home. Walk-in-showers can make your home safer and more accessible especially for those with limited mobility who are more prone to slipping and falling. Not worried about safety? The look of your bathroom and how it functions can decrease the value of your home. Old, dirty bathrooms are not appealing and can even put off a bad odor. Quick bathtub replacements or conversions can increase the value of your home while creating a more functional space that looks better.
Types of Wet Area Remodels
At American Bath, we offer many wet area upgrades that can accommodate your budget and the look you’re hoping to achieve. Some of the most popular upgrades include…
- Installing a Walk-in Shower – Upgrading your high-walled, step-in shower to a walk-in shower that has waterproof, non-slip flooring without a barrier entry can make it easy for yourself or guests who need something that’s more accessible. These also have a clean look that can be customized to fit any style. Ask your remodeling company how a walk-in shower can benefit you and which customization options are available.
- Converting Your Tub to a Shower – Homeowners today are favoring showers overs baths so when given the opportunity, they’ll swap their tub for a shower. Tub-to-shower conversions can help you make the most of your space and create a more sleek, upscale look. You can choose which upgrades you want to accommodate your look and lifestyle.
- Replace Your Bathtub – If you feel your bathtub needs replaced, whether it’s outdated or worn, a quick and easy bathtub replacement can spruce up your bathroom without breaking the bank. Older homes are no stranger to bathtub replacements as porcelain tubs can become damaged or begin to rust. This option is not only affordable but it will also make your bathroom look and feel cleaner.
