Is your bathroom an inviting place that is cosmetically appealing and functional as well? Or, do you dread going into your old, outdated, functionally-frustrating bathroom?
Many people who have never had their bathroom remodeled, or at least recently remodeled, absolutely hate their bathroom and dread the time they spend there each day.
If that sounds like you—it's time to change all that with a bathroom remodel that will have you loving your bathroom again. And don't worry if you don't know where to start. We are here to give you some advice, as well as the most frequently requested bathroom remodel features that will make your new bathroom look and feel like a dream.
But before we get started, let's cover a few thought processes first.
How Do You Use Your Bathroom?
Before you begin your remodel, think about how you use your bathroom. Where do you keep your toiletries, towels, how much storage do you need, and how easily it is for you to function in your bathroom. Your design team will help you think through how you use your bathroom to make sure everything is conveniently placed and nothing you need or would like to have is left out.
Thinking Outside of the Box
When people think about features like grab bars and shower seating, they usually think those things are something only seniors use. But don't you have days when you are so tired, you'd rather sit in the shower rather than stand? And how many times have you bent over to wash your feet and wish you had something to hold on to...right?
So before you begin your Corvallis bathroom remodel, why not consider adding some of those convenience features that will make showering a whole lot easier?
Nine Features That Will Transform Your Bathroom Into a Spa-Like Oasis
1. Delta ADA Grab Bars with Slide Bar Hand Shower Fixtures
This product is ADA-compliant. The grab bar has a slide bar hand shower head with a hose. This will allow you to slide it up and down so it's easier to use from any angle while sitting or standing. Of course, that doesn't replace the fixed showerhead. You can have one of those installed too if you'd like.
2. Expanded Shower Space, Portable Shower Seat, Long Shower Bench
You could choose to expand the size of your shower to create more floor space with a curbless base. Doing so will enable your new shower to accommodate a portable shower seat with plenty of room left over to move around it or perhaps a long shower bench instead. And, having a larger shower space will make it much easier to clean as well.
3. Lane Marble
Lane marble is similar to Corian. This will give you a seamless surface without grout lines which makes it easier to clean and maintain. You can also have an anti-slip texture added to the shower pan for an added layer of safety.
4. MTI Bathtub
MTI bathtubs come in a variety of options that will make bathing like relaxing in an upscale spa. These are freestanding bathtubs that come in all shapes and sizes. They are also customizable and have many different options from which you can choose. An MTI bathtub comes either handcrafted in SculptureStone or handmade in cast acrylic.
5. Toe Kick Lighting
Toe kick lighting is a must for those nighttime trips to the bathroom. The toe kick lighting option has a built-in motion sensor so you don't have to worry about fumbling around trying to find the light switch in the dark.
Toe kick lighting is also great for mood-setting, relaxing in a bubble bath, or any other quiet time you spend in your new bathroom oasis.
6. Customized Bathroom Heating Options
There are plenty of customized bathroom heating options you can choose to have installed in your new Corvallis bathroom remodel.
Heated tile flooring throughout your entire bathroom is a must for those cold winter days and nights. Never again will you have to walk across the cold ice-like tile floor to get to and from the shower or bathtub. You could also opt for a heat lamp with a fan or some towel warmers to add a few more layers of luxury to your bathroom.
7. Livex Lighting
If you want sleek modern lines to finish off your bathroom design, then Livex Lighting is something to consider. Livex Lighting has a variety of options such as wall sconces, chandeliers, pendant fixtures, and other exceptionally inviting bathroom lighting choices as well.
8. Silestone Pulsar Surfaces
The surfaces you use for your bathroom are extremely important. If you are going to spend the money on a remodel, you want something that's durable and is going to last. That's why opting for Silestone Pulsar countertops, benchtops, and windowsills are a great choice not only for durability, but also for how visually appealing they are as well.
9. Double Vanity with Seating Area
If you share a bathroom, a double vanity is a must. A double vanity will enable each person to have their own space and the seating area is perfect for putting on makeup or styling your hair.
What Is a 3D Color Rendering and Why Is It So Important?
The method your bathroom remodel design team uses will generally determine whether you end up loving your new bathroom or being disappointed in it. It all comes down to 3D color rendering.
Don't you agree that you would be better able to decide what you like and don't like if you could see the finished product first? With a 3D color rendering, you can. The design team will enter your ideas into the computer software which will then give you a visual of the finished product before any of the work takes place.
This will allow you to see your choices and make changes to anything you don't like. Unlike a remodel that has been completed in which you then you have to pay to have the things you don't like changed.
