Bathroom Additions That Make Dollars and Sense

It has been shown that upgrading your bathroom is one of the best investments you can make in your home. Besides that, it will make your early morning personal chores so much easier and more enjoyable with an updated bathroom. There are so many new and wonderful designs for bathrooms that are available today, that you will have no problem finding the right look and design for your taste. Here are some of the features that can make your bathroom a pleasure for you and the envy of your friends.

New construction and design combined with old fashioned aesthetics make pedestal sinks an attractive addition to modern bathrooms. Many people love the clean look of a sink resting on a pedestal instead of on top of a vanity cabinet. The pipes of the sink are hidden in the pedestal and all you see is a graceful column under the sink. Of course, all that great storage space in the cabinet is sacrificed, so you have to decide which is more important, looks or storage. You can always add a shelf unit for additional storage.

Tubs have also changed recently, with the strict lines of the rectangular tub giving way to longer, deeper and other types of over sized tubs. Perhaps you have never been a “bath” person, preferring showers, but if you had a big comfortable tub to soak in, it might change your outlook.

A new shower will also add immensely to your bathroom area. If you replace a tub with a shower, you will gain space, and the new showers have great features such as multiple shower heads from different angles, flexible hose shower heads, massaging shower heads and built in seats.

One of the easiest ways to add a new look to the bath is to replace the flooring. If you have older flooring, this may be a great idea anyway since the new floor materials are so much better at repelling water. Stone and ceramic floor tiles have become very popular for this reason. You can also add some additional luxury by installing a heated floor so your tootsies won’t be cold when you come out of the tub or shower.

There are so many new innovations when it comes to bathroom design, and because they are becoming more and more popular, they are reasonably available to most people today. The stress of everyday life can disappear when you have a comfortable, modern bathroom.
