The bathroom is more than just a place to get clean. After all, there’s nothing quite like the luxury of a steaming hot bath or a steamy shower in a beautifully remodeled bathroom after a long, stressful day. The bathroom is the one place in the home where you can be sure to be left alone—as your own private spa retreat inside the comfort of your own home, and your go-to place to regenerate and unwind at any moment of the day or night.
At Bath Planet of Denver, we know just how important it is to have a lovely, gleaming bathroom to come home to each day. We’ve remodeled countless bathrooms in Denver, Nebraska, and the surrounding areas, and are proud to offer top-quality bathroom renovation,and bathroom remodel services that can give you optimum comfort and add value to your home.
The best part about bathroom renovations is that a little goes a long way. If you’re not quite ready for a full bathroom remodel just yet, there are ways to give your bathroom a boost without worrying about the stress and hassle of a traditional renovation overhaul. If you’re interested in a quick bathroom makeover for your space, take a look at some of our favorite ideas for upgrading from our team at Bath Planet of Nebraska and Denver.
Upgrade Your Shower heads and Faucets
A very fast and economical way to upgrade your bathroom shower or tub is by switching out the shower heads and faucets. Deteriorating shower heads and faucet products don’t just look terrible; they tend to function poorly as well—affecting the quality of your bath or shower experience. In particular, handheld shower heads and faucets are not only elegant but are also highly functional. These products offer great flexibility for people of all heights, from very tall adults to small children, and even for washing the family pet, too.
Maximize Your Existing Space
Small bathrooms can feel claustrophobic and stuffy, especially after someone’s showered or bathed recently. While it’s not always a possibility to maximize the space without a full bathroom demolition and bathroom renovation, it is important to take advantage of whatever space you do have.
A way to create the illusion of more space is to add a bigger mirror in the vanity area of your bathroom. You can also create more space by switching out your old shower stall with a brand new glass-walled replacement shower enclosure. A good bathroom contractor will customize a stall that fits more conveniently within the existing blueprint of your bathroom area—an upgrade that’s surprisingly affordable and easy to complete.
Replace Your Toilet
Another bathroom remodel tip is to replace your toilet bowl with a brand-new one. Normally, the seat of the standard toilet stands 14 to 15 inches off the ground. However, superior-height toilets are 17 to 19 inches above the floor, which can make quite a difference in comfort. Needless to say, if your toilet is getting old, or looks a bit worn-out and deteriorating, replacing it with a brand-new model will make a huge difference.
Keep Your Bathroom Well-Lighted
Your bathroom should be bright enough for you to shave, take a bath, and even to read labels. If the lighting in your space is low, dim, or inefficient, adding in new lighting or switching out old light bulbs for stronger, brighter ones can make a big difference in how you enjoy your bathroom area. For optimal lighting, choose a recessed light and light bulbs which are specially designed to be used in wet areas.
For better lighting and greater savings, choose LED lights for your bathroom. CFLs are less expensive than LEDs. However, the frequent on/off cycling can shorten its lifespan—which could mean you’ll need to replace them much more often than with LEDs and might spend more in the long run.
