Bathroom Remodeling:Showers and Tubs
Bathroom remodeling could possibly be a daunting task, much so if you didn’t make a vivid plan ahead. 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.
If you currently have a shower and tub combo installed and you find that you use the shower feature more often than the tub, you might want to opt replacing it entirely with a stand-alone walk in shower. This will free up a good amount of space which will make your bathroom a whole lot more functional.
When it all boils down to choosing showers and tubs, there are a plethora of options the market has to offer besides the standard walk-in shower or your average step in tub. Newer and more luxurious contenders in our modern age of tubs and showers are clawfoot bathtubs, walk-in tubs, and steam showers just to name a few.
A steam shower is a viable option for those who would like to have the luxury and comfort of a spa integrated into their bathrooms. 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. A staple feature found in most of today’s era of steam showers is electronic temperature control, as well as other luxuries such as foot massagers, jets, ceiling rain, MP3 players, radio, and even a telephone. Amazingly, all these features can be installed in your bath and take up the same amount of space as your run of the mill walk-in shower.
However, clawfoot tubs have existed for years, but with the addition of new features found in the newer models, the clawfoot tub is still a viable choice for your remodeled bathroom. Modern clawfoot tubs are made out of acrylic as opposed as the older ones being made from cast iron, this makes the modern tubs lighter and economical. Clawfoot tubs are a good choice in giving your remodeled bathroom that vintage look. There are many styles to choose from and also a plethora of fixtures that provide wider options for personalizing your bath.
A walk-in tub is perfect for those who are concerned with the safety of stepping into traditional bathtubs. Walk-in Tubs have a door with a water tight seal that opens and closes allowing a safer and easier 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.
