Building or remodeling a new bathroom is one of today’s most popular remodeling projects. The modern bathroom has become stylish, efficient, comfortable and luxurious. A bathroom remodel can add immeasurably to your comfort and enjoyment, as well as raise the value of your home.
At Lincorp / Borchert, we will reconfigure floor plans, move walls, fixtures and utilities to increase floor area and storage space. A bathroom remodeling project is also the perfect chance to upgrade the plumbing systems, fix weak water pressure or replace leaky faucets. Heat, moisture and heavy use make the bathroom especially vulnerable to deterioration and structural damage. High-quality materials and exacting craftsmanship are imperative.
Bathroom Flooring and Tiles
Tile ideas for bathroom floors can help you know what options to consider for your bathroom remodeling project. Bathroom tile comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, patterns and textures and they are the basis for any bathroom design.
Bathroom flooring should also be considered with the plans of the homeowner in mind. If the family plans to stay in the home for many years, they might want to choose flooring that will last for years. If they will only be in the house for a short time, their choice of flooring should reflect these goals. Marble flooring is more expensive than other materials for bathroom flooring, but this will last for many years.
The maintenance of the flooring is another consideration that occupants will consider when choosing bathroom flooring. Some bathroom flooring is easier to care for than other types.
Ceramic tile is often used because of its durability, resistance to dampness, safety to walk on when wet and ease of cleaning. If you select ceramic tiles, consider using a tile that has a slip-resistant surface for bathroom safety. Unglazed tiles will need to be washed frequently because they absorb stains quite easily. Tile shapes can be squares, rectangles, hexagons and octagons while accent pieces can be narrow and small diamond-shaped.
Choosing a shower enclosure sure seems easy enough. But make the wrong choice and your bathroom remodeling project will be marked for life. The type of shower enclosure you choose will greatly depend on how spacious your bathroom is.
If you have a bigger bathroom space, then choose a ‘quadrant’ shower enclosure. Such a design can be placed in any spacious shower corner. These types typically feature curved pivot doors and attractive aluminum frames. Quadrant shower enclosures are very stylish and chic. They can add instant elegance to big bathrooms.
This is why you should take your time when deciding which shower enclosure to install. Your bathroom remodeling consultant at Lincorp / Borchert will help you with your selection.
