Any type of bathroom remodeling project is a big deal and can quickly snowball out of control if you’re not careful. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have a solid plan in place before you start with your remodeling project. Many times, it’s a wise idea to reach out to professionals to help you come up with a solid plan of action as well. This helps to ensure that your bathroom remodel is a smooth process that won’t hinder your daily routine. We find that one of the simplest and most elegant ways to update your bathroom is with a replacement bathtub. However, before jumping into such an undertaking, it’s best to consider a few things first.
Tips for a Bath Remodel
- Do You Need a New Bath: Many times, a homeowner can get by with a simple reglazing or relining of their existing bathtub, each of which are both more affordable alternatives. However, if you’re looking to reinvent the way your bathroom looks or if your bathtub is constantly leaking, then a full replacement is the better option.
- What Material to Choose: We explored the different replacement bathtub materials in a previous article. As a quick refresher, some of the more popular materials include: acrylic, cast iron, fiberglass, and wood. For a full rundown on the pros and cons of these materials, please refer back to the previous article of “Choosing the Right Bathtub Type”. In short, we have found that acrylic is a favorite among modern homeowners due to its affordability and ability to be custom formed to fit virtually any space in your bathroom.
- Coordination with the Bathroom: Style is not something to be sacrificed during a bath remodel. It’s best to make sure that any adjustments you make during the bath remodeling process fits with the cosmetic style you’re trying to achieve. This can be made easy since each of our custom-made baths are available in multiple shapes, colors, and patterns that can accentuate your bathroom or give a fresh, new look!
- Accessibility Needs: Before beginning the remodeling process, assess what your accessibility needs are. If you or any other household member has mobility issues, then investing in an accessible bathing apparatus may be the way to go. If you don’t want to fully invest in a walk-in tub, then you should look into accessorizing your new replacement bath with safety grab bars.
Turn to Professionalism You can Trust
A final consideration is to make sure that you research bathroom remodelers before investing your resources. Some homeowners may even want to try their hand at DIY installations, which isn’t inherently bad, but we would suggest against it if you’re replacing a major apparatus like your bathtub. The reason we advise against it is because an inadequate job can lead to a myriad of problems, including water damage.
