Whenever people decide to undertake a remodeling project, the first things to be renovated are usually the bath and/or the shower. Most people decide to do so because remodeling the bath and shower will provide the most impact on their washroom’s aesthetics. While it may be tempting to simply get a new bathtub and tear down your shower to expand it, you actually need to take it easy and plan everything out ahead.
The first thing you’ll need to do is to take down the exact dimensions of your shower. You should try and keep your new design within the existing pipe structure so as to avoid any type of expensive plumbing work. If you’re looking to expand your showering space, then you should try and do so within the immediate space available in the washroom itself. If however you’re simply looking to spruce it up a little, then your work will be limited to mostly repainting and a new showerhead.
There are many showerheads that you can acquire for your bathroom; some of the more expensive models even offer multi-jet options and are available in practically any home improvement store, large and small alike. You might also want to invest in a new shower curtain or even some type of sliding doors.
One of the most important features when remodeling your shower is the tiling. There’s a vast selection of those out there, going from the cheap and sturdy white tiles to the extravagant and ornate ones, which of course come at a much more expensive rate. You should also invest in an acrylic wall which will help cover up the materials from any harm they could withstand in the shower.
Before you delve into your project, you should always consult a construction professional and make sure that the plan you came up with is realistic and worth the investment.
