Planning for the updates and remodeling of your bathroom can add curb appeal and value to your home. There are hundreds of ways of sprucing your outdated shower and bath without breaking a bank.
Today, Mega Kitchen and Bath are sharing some of our innovative and smart updates that will save you much budget for your bathroom remodel. Nevertheless, if you have saved already for your bathroom remodeling, then it is still best to hire a local contractor.
Install A Window in Your Shower
This small update is both functional and aesthetically beneficial for your bathroom comfort. Why? Excess moisture and humidity inside your toilet and shower area are responsible for the growth of molds and mildews.
These microbes completely disrupt the whiteness of your tiles and grouts. When you install a window in your shower, you are placing an exhaust for the excess moisture inside.
To maintain privacy, you can choose a frosted glass panel so it is not 100% visible inside out. Likewise, make sure your window is tilted downward for seamless drainage.
Consider Smaller Textured Bathroom Floor Tiles
Choosing a larger tile for your bathroom floor is dangerous because it poses a higher risk of slipping. Larger tiles mean lesser grouts that provide better traction to your feet. Nonetheless, a larger tile is feasible if it has a textured surface.
For this matter, we firmly encourage you to use smaller tiles with a textured surface. Its overall impact is an increase in traction and friction between your feet and the bathroom floor, so lesser risk of slippage.
Water-Efficient Toilet with Hidden Tank
When you plan to renovate your bathroom, you will inevitably be upgrading your old toilet. This is an added cost to your bathroom remodeling. Mega Kitchen and Bath will be your best partner in sprucing your outdated toilet for a reasonable price tag.
However, to make that worthwhile, it is best if we make that water-efficient and space-saving. In that case, we can install a low-flow toilet where its tank is hidden inside the wall.
A low-flow design helps you save water in flushing your toilet. Whereas, a hidden water tank allows you to save more space, which is greatly useful for those with smaller bathrooms.
Go For A 2-inch Drain Pipe
Most drain pipes installed in your small and master bathroom are around 1.5” or 1.25” diameter. The main setback, it gets easily clogged up. To avoid the hassle of a clogged drain pipe, we recommend that you update your pipe size to 2 inches.
Increasing your pipe’s diameter does not increase your average bathroom remodel cost while improving the efficiency of your plumbing system.
Install Recessed Vanity Cabinets
Your stylish and elegant vanity cabinets add curb appeal while providing storage space for your medicine, cosmetics, and toiletries. The material and design of your vanity cabinets also influence your master bathroom remodeling.
If you have a smaller bathroom, then it is best to go for a lighter palette. To save more space, we can install recessed vanity cabinets a few inches from your vanity tops. Exudes a sleeker and modern appearance for your small bathroom remodeling.
Opt for Modern Recessed Lighting
The natural light coming in from your shower window adds vibrancy in your shower and toilet. However, it may not be enough to light up your entire master bathroom. A cost-efficient way to resolve this is by installing recessed modern lights.
We can install those modern LED lighting behind your vanity mirror and in the corners of your ceilings. Likewise, adding a dimmer switch is also excellent in creating a dramatic feel inside your shower and toilet area.
