Bathroom Showers and Bathtubs-The Focal Point for Bathroom Remodeling
you consider a bathroom
remodel, one of the first places people start is the bathroom tub
or shower. Whether you're getting rid of that 80's pink-and-brass look,
or the tub or shower is just beyond help, bathroom
showers and tubs make a huge impact on any bathroom remodel.
From whirlpools and soaking baths to the timeless beauty of a claw foot
tub, or creating a walk-in shower, the bathtubs
section of your remodel takes a lot of planning. As you form a mental
picture of your bath or shower
remodel, one of the biggest cost savings is found where the plumbing
currently exists. Naturally, using existing plumbing vs. relocating it
will keep costs down.
far as product selection goes, the world's your oyster. Bathtubs now come
in all shapes, sizes and colors. Coming in composite, fiber glass, cast
iron, acrylic and steel and ranging from $300 to over $2,000, this is
a part of your bathroom remodel well worth ample time and consideration.
Think about the space you're occupying and rely heavily on the input from
your contractor. Do walls need to be moved to fit that corner Jacuzzi
tub? Will there be any issues with drainage and ventilation for the new
bathroom showers? Can we just go with inset pre-made bathroom showers?
Can the bathtub fit through the front door? These are questions best left
to the professionals. As always, ImproveNet is here to help. Click here
