When renovating a bathroom, several components have the chance to be upgraded. Putting in a new, better quality shower can be a great idea. Getting a custom shower put in is a big project. Here are some things to consider before installing a custom shower, from Reliable Contracting Services in Edmonton.
Planning is key
Before doing anything to the current shower, or the rest of your bathroom, it’s important to plan. Making a plan for what the shower will look like, the dimensions, the materials used, and other features is important to ensure the project runs smoothly. Not only that but if problems are encountered along the way, you can be prepared. Starting with the plan and adding modifications throughout will keep the idea clear, and make the project a less stressful experience.
While making the plan, it’s important to remember that this isn’t a small job you can do on your own. Putting a custom piece into your home is a job for the pros, as several different things go into adding a custom shower. Working with plumbing, properly waterproofing, and other wall problems that may arise should be left to the professionals. That way, you’ll avoid future problems and save money on repairs later on.
Keep in mind resale value
Look at the current layout of your bathroom. If it has a tub and shower, or just a tub, it may be worth considering keeping the tub. Sure, if you were to sell your home, a custom walk-in shower would be a major selling point. However, in order for a bathroom to be considered a full bathroom, there has to be a tub. Keeping a tub in at least one bathroom in the home is important for this matter, otherwise, you may run into trouble in the future when it comes time to sell.
Maintenance is required
With any shower, it’s important to remember some degree of maintenance goes into taking care of it. Alongside regular cleaning, there are many other things you can do to keep the shower looking its best. Using an exhaust fan to reduce humidity, shower spray to avoid mildew buildup, and sealing grout lines every six months will keep the shower in good shape year-round.
Don’t shy away from creativity!
When designing the new shower, there are so many decisions to be made that are ultimately up to you. The first decision that might come to mind is the tiling or color decisions. However, there are so many other choices to be made that are ultimately up to you. You can choose the type of glass paneling, the shape of the tile, the fixtures, shelving, the inclusion of a bench, and so many other features. Let your imagination run wild!
