Next to the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the most commonly renovated rooms in the house. Whether you’re remodelling your master bathroom into a personal oasis or upgrading the main bath for the family, there are things to consider.
Specializing in high-quality home renovations in Edmonton, Four Elements Construction can assist with your bathroom addition or remodel. Consider these bathroom renovation improvements:
Low-flow fixtures and faucets
Water-efficient technology has vastly improved over the years. Nowadays, there is no reason not to include low-flow plumbing fixtures in your bathroom renovation. Low-flow toilets save gallons of water per day, especially in family homes. Low-flow faucets and showerheads also result in significant water savings without sacrificing water pressure. You’ll see these savings on your monthly water bill.
Tiled shower conversions are the trend for bathroom renovations in Edmonton. Instead of a standard tub and shower combo, homeowners can opt for a walk-in shower with glass doors instead. They are attractive, more accessible, and practical for many people who rarely take baths. You can choose from a range of tiles, designs, and special features like shower seats and spray jets.
If you are planning on moving in the next few years, you might want to make sure you still have at least one bathtub in the home. When you decide to sell, a home without a tub might deter families with children. If you’re not planning on selling in the future, renovate your home in a way that best meets your needs.
Soaker tub for the ensuite, if it’s your preference
If you’re creating a personal oasis in your master bathroom, treat yourself to a large soaker tub. Again, you should only do this if you are a person who enjoys taking a bath. For some people, having a large shower might still be the best choice. If you’re a person who loves to unwind with a hot bath, really treat yourself to a luxurious tub. You’ll be glad you did!
Add more natural light
Natural lighting in a bathroom can make the space feel airy and open. Plus, it helps cut down on electricity consumption. There are a couple of ways you can add more natural light to the bathroom. You can install a new, larger window in the bathroom or shower. If your bathroom wall faces other homes or the street, you might consider privacy glass. If it faces the private backyard, you might enjoy looking out the window while in the shower or bath.
Another option is installing a skylight. You can install a traditional skylight or consider a solar tube or sun tunnel-type skylight. They are like a skylight but are a tube that reflects the sun through what looks like a recessed light fixture. They’re energy-efficient and can bring in functional natural light.
