For the last 10 years, the third bedroom in my home has been serving dual purposes. I’ve been utilizing it as a home office. My husband uses it as a home gym. However, before long, this multipurpose room will need to be repurposed into a nursery. Because I can’t allow my future baby to sleep on a treadmill, my husband and I need the assistance of a remodeling contractor. This type of professional can improve this chaotic space and help turn it back into its intended purpose, a bedroom. If you need to remake one of the rooms in your home, consider hiring a remodeling contractor to complete the work for you. On this blog, you will learn the ways a remodeling contractor can transform a multipurpose room into the space you need.
If you've grown tired of your bathroom, then do something about it. There are plenty of areas to work on. These range from the inexpensive, such as changing fixtures and wall sconces, to major overhauls such as installing a new tub or even expanding the size of the room and installing a skylight.
This article will focus on modestly priced upgrades. This means that you won't read about tearing down walls, expanding the room, or installing a giant marble bathtub. You will read about some really simple changes that you can have a contractor come in and install over the course of a few days. Here they are.
New Floor and Wall Tile
If your tile is cracked or old looking, then have it torn up and have new tile set. Instead of trying to make do with re-grouting and cleaning the old tile, it's better to just start fresh. You can use this opportunity to change the style of tile. Spend some time looking at tile patterns. You might like a brick, subway or mosaic tile. Also think about color. If you currently have a classic black and white mosaic tile pattern, you might want to switch it up and choose a dark blue for the shower. Look at patterns online to get an idea and then hand these photos over to the contractor.
New Wall Sconces and Fixtures
This is a simple way to brighten up the look of the bathroom. If the faucets and showerheads are old, then get new bright chrome fixtures. You can even install these yourself if you are a bit handy and you have the proper tools (wrench, screwdriver, and plumbers tape).
Wall scones are also a great way to brighten up the look of the room. This is especially true if you have redone the tile. If you have redone the tiling, then you might want to get new sconces that will match the new tile.
Replace Your Shower Curtain With A Glass Enclosure
If you use a shower curtain, then you should have it replaced with a beautiful glass enclosure, like those from Express Baths. This will help to open up the room, which will make it look larger. This is done by opting for a frameless shower enclosure, which will eliminate any visual separation in the room, which creates the illusion of more space.
If you have a very wide space, you can have the shower door slide open and close on a hidden track. Or, if you have a narrow space, you can have the contractor install a regular door that swings open. If you prefer some privacy, you can choose to have frosted glass instead of transparent glass.
