The subject in mind for this bathroom remodeling los angeles job is a typical house with a “not as big as we’d like” bathroom. It might be in need of a better layout, an update, or greater energy savings. All of these can be incorporated without breaking the bank, although if you’re inclined to spend money, bathrooms usually recoup their cost.
Before starting the remodeling process, it’s important to ask a few questions: Who uses the bathroom most often? What is wrong with its current configuration (if anything)? How does it feel – its vibe? What’s my budget?
Who uses the bathroom most? What for? The answer to these two questions will make the scope of the remodeling job clearer. A high volume, all-purpose kid’s bathroom might mean more emphasis on the toilet and tub. A granite countertop would be the obvious choice for durability. Conversely, a seldom used guest bathroom might call for beautifully crafted floor tiles that will impress.
Small changes to a bathroom’s configuration can make it flow better. Easy-to-open cabinets make for less time getting ready in the morning (and less crowding). Well designed cabinets also conserve space and reduce clutter. A larger vanity allows more people to share the sink and mirror. If the bathtub is rarely used, consider replacing it with a standing shower and free up valuable floor space. Luxury shower heads once found only in spas are now mainstream; their prices are no longer exorbitant.
Painting the bathroom can change the tone (pun intended) instantly. A high quality paint made with environmentally sensitive materials will last for years. You can change the bathroom’s mood simply by altering its light – with a new fixture or by with new bulbs. Another easy way to reinvent the bathroom is by making small additions; a new towel rack, a decorative light switch plate, or a different colored shower curtain.
You can replace an old toilet with a newer model and save money and water. Ditto for the sink, shower, and tub. Environmentally friendly models are now as comfortable as standard, classic models.
