Tubs And Showers: Considerations For A Better Bathroom

Tub and shower remodeling is something many homeowners do to update their bathroom. Updating your bathroom adds value and can also make it more comfortable and useful. Adding a new tub and shower can update the appearance of your home and increase your bathroom’s functionality. A well-placed tub and shower fixture can create the feel of a larger bathroom, making the space more inviting and practical.

A tub and shower can be a focal point of the bathroom. You can add features that add depth and definition to the room, such as mosaic tiles that you can place over the tub or surround. Tiles that match your countertops are the perfect look for any room, but you might want to go even further in matching your tub and shower fixtures. With a custom tub and shower faucet, you can add elegance to your bathroom with touches that make a lasting impression.

Remodeling your tub and shower will also add an extra element of safety to the bathroom. Installing a tub that has sliding shower doors can make the bathroom much safer than traditional shower curtains. Having sliding doors increases the chance of a fall since there is no barrier between the two sides when they are closed. A well-made tub and shower curtain can be designed to meet ADA (American with Disabilities Act) requirements by incorporating accessible features. Choosing ADA compliant shower heads, tub fixtures and other accessories can add to the safety factor of your remodeled tub and shower.

Customizing your tub and shower can add a level of comfort and style. Choosing fixtures and accessories that add a luxurious touch will make your bath and shower experience even more enjoyable. Fixtures like soap dishes and heated towel racks can be custom made to fit into small or difficult spaces and come in a variety of styles and materials.

Tubs and showers can also be made to accommodate a handicap tub, which adds a safety feature to the bathroom. By installing grab bars, hand rails, and other barriers in your tub and shower, you can provide a more accessible and safer experience for a person with physical disabilities. Making these handicap tubs accessible can also help you feel more comfortable about your bathroom, knowing it contains elements that were designed just for you.

When considering tub and shower remodeling, it is important to talk to your plumber and other contractors to see what they would recommend for your home. It may be that they have years of experience in this type of remodeling. Be sure and listen to their advice.
