Are you a homeowner considering a renovation of your bathroom? Choosing a bathroom shower design is often a daunting decision for those wanting to redesign their bathrooms. If you’ve done any research thus far, obviously you’re aware that the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house in terms of overall home values. Generally speaking, the more you invest in your bathrooms and kitchen, the more you will receive during the sale of your house. With this in mind, it is recommended that you replace any broken or worn out materials inside the bathroom during your renovation.
Given the above, your shower is definitely the most important aspect of your bathroom for new home buyers. If your bathroom has a limited amount of space, shower enclosures are a deal for shower designs. This means you will utilize an existing structure to give you options when bathing such as the use of a shower or a bathtub. Of course if you have more room in your bathroom, such as that of a master bath, you may want an isolated shower and bathtub or even a hot tub. Hot tubs with jets on the side are especially relaxing after a hard days work.
If you are bathroom vanity is in close proximity to your shower and bathtub, exhaust fans along with shower lighting is very important. During your shower the steam will fog up your mirror considerably if you don’t have an ample exhaust system to reduce steam. We suggest a lighting and exhaust unit either centrally placed on the ceiling or above the shower so the steam rises directly into the exhaust and avoid your bathroom mirror as much as possible.
If your bathroom is smaller and can only accommodate a shower and bathtub combo, a shower curtain and rod is also an important consideration. Will this be a bathroom used by a woman or a man for the most part? Many women prefer floral and feminine printed curtains, however a man will obviously prefer something a bit more neutral. The inner lining of the shower curtain should be smooth and firm so water can be shed easily. Many times if the lining is somewhat rough or has a grainy feel to it mold and mildew can build up easily in the life of the shower curtain will be minimal.
