A bathroom is probably the most important room of a house, especially when it comes to the resale value of a home. Remodeled bathrooms affect the price of a home so much that an average bathroom remodel will yield a 75 percent return on the remodel investment. Remodeling contractors offer services in bathroom remodeling and will get necessary permits and draw up plans for a remodel. Whether considering a complete remodel or addition of a whole new bathroom, there are many factors involved with a bathroom remodel.
One aspect of bathroom remodeling is choosing a vanity. Vanities are the fixtures that have a sink fixed into a countertop that sits on top of cabinets. Vanities can set the theme of a bathroom or match the existing design of a bathroom. They can also transform the use of space within a bathroom by creating more space with the cabinets. The cabinets in a vanity provide storage space to prevent a bathroom from becoming cluttered.
The cabinets of a vanity can be built from many types of materials, making them customizable right down to the hardware and handles. Bathroom cabinets can be any color or style and can have more cabinets added on for more storage. Remodeling contractors can help choose and install bathroom vanities that work best with the space and allotted budget.
Another major aspect of bathroom remodeling is shower and tub remodeling and installation. Shower and tub installation is best handled by professional contractors because of the building codes and permits involved. Contracting companies can custom build showers and typically draw up shower plans to match the opinions and desires of the client.
Shower areas can be showers only or be enclosed within a tub. Tub enclosures come in many styles and colors and do not necessarily have to include shower heads or full standing showers. Whether a bathroom is remodeled to have a shower, bath, or a shower within a bath depends on the client’s preference.
Sometimes a home can benefit from the addition of a whole new bathroom. Adding a bathroom to a home is a major project which is why this job is also best handled by a remodeling contractor. Contractors draw up blueprints for a new bathroom based on the requests of the client.
Once the plans are drawn up, the contractor will obtain the building permits and complete the project. A good contractor also follows up all projects, additions and remodels, with final inspections to make sure the remodel is up to code. Talk to a remodeling contractor about remodeling your bathroom.
