Showers and Tubs Choices In Bathroom Remodeling
Remodeling one’s bathroom may seem to be a pretty major job, especially if you don’t haven’t made a comprehensive plan ahead of time. But before you can even begin making plans for bathroom remodeling, you must first come acquainted with the various options available and what it is that you want to have in the bathroom.
If you currently have a tub and shower combination but you find that you are not using your tub as often, you might want to consider switching it for a stand-alone walk in shower setup instead. This will free up a good amount of space which will make your bathroom a whole lot more functional.
In terms of showers and tubs, the market is flooded with various options that offer you more than just your standard step in tub or your run of the mill walk in shower. Some of the newer and luxurious entries in our modern era of showers and tubs include clawfoot bathtubs, walk-in tubs, and steam showers.
A steam shower is a viable option for those who would like to have the luxury and comfort of a spa integrated into their bathrooms. Steam showers are self-enclosed shower units that uses steam made from water mist by the use of the steam generators built into its system. A staple feature found in most of today’s era of steam showers is electronic temperature control, as well as other luxuries such as foot massagers, jets, ceiling rain, MP3 players, radio, and even a telephone. Amazingly, all these features can be installed in your bath and take up the same amount of space as your run of the mill walk-in shower.
However, clawfoot tubs have existed for years, but with the addition of new features found in the newer models, the clawfoot tub is still a viable choice for your remodeled bathroom. Clawfoot tubs of our age are no longer made of cast iron and are now made out of acrylic which makes the modern tubs lighter and cost effective. Clawfoot tubs are a good choice in giving your remodeled bathroom that vintage look. There are many styles to choose from and also a plethora of fixtures that provide wider options for personalizing your bath.
Walk-in tubs are great for individuals who question the safety of stepping into traditional bathtubs. Walk-in tubs eliminate the potential risk that comes from stepping into doors by having a water-tight door as means of entry.
So even if a full bathroom remodeling is out of your budget, a shower or tub remodeling can provide a pretty dramatic change in your bathroom especially when your current shower or tub doesn’t quite suit your needs.
