By | Bathroom Accessories | No Comments

When it comes to Halloween, you want to pull out all of the stops and make your home as spooky and festive as possible. When hosting for the holiday, don’t forget to decorate your bathroom! Here are our favorite tips to make your bathroom extra scary this October:

Change up the LightingMaking Your Bathroom Spooky For Halloween-pexels-photo-1480861-1024x683

Swapping your old lightbulb for a creepy orange or green one can change the entire vibe of the room. Dimming your lights or adding strands of lights shaped like leaves and pumpkins can also add to the ambiance. Adding creepy candles can also give your space a “haunted mansion” type feel.

Switch out Your Accessories

Add decorations wherever you can. Swap out the soap dispenser, add a blood-spattered bath mat and throw plastic spiders all over the place. Invest in Halloween themed linens and signs to hang around. The more festive you can be, the better.

Don’t Forget a Spooky Scent

Investing in a pumpkin scented candle or bathroom spray can make your space feel incredibly festive. Find a scent that screams “fall”. Pumpkin, pine, and apple all help contribute to the ambiance.

Make it Gord-geous

Another fun way to bring Halloween decor into your bathroom is by adding pumpkins and gourds. Placing these around your sink, on your window sills, and on the back of your toilet brings a fresh new look to your space. Buy varying sizes to mix things up and arrange them into fun patterns to give your space some easy flair.

Spiders and Webs

One of the easiest (and creepiest) decorations that you can add are fake spider webs and plastic spiders. These are easy to place and to clean up and can be used again and again year after year. Add fake webs to the corners of your room and all around the windows and then sprinkle fake spiders all around.

There are plenty of fun ways to make your bathroom spooky this Halloween season. Get creative and find some DIY crafts to spruce up your space. Your guests will love the festive feel of your home and you’ll go down as the hostess with the mostest.

 

How to Find the Right Accessories for Your New Bathroom

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

You’ve done the planning, you’ve decided on your bathroom fixtures, the sink, the toilet, and the shower. Now it’s time to accessorize! If you search bathroom accessories on Google you will see a wide range of shopping options from thousands of online stores. Stop a headache, save time, energy, and maybe even some money by following these five tips for finding the right accessories for your new bathroom.

Know What You’re Looking For

When the time comes to furnish your bathroom you will be faced with more accessory options than you’ll know what to do with. It is important to know what you are looking for before you begin the search. With a wide variety of different accessories to fill your space, it is best to be prepared with a list of items you are going to want and need. Think of the three major areas of the bathroom; the shower/bath, the sink area, and the toilet and create a list of accessories needed for each area.

For example, take a look at the sink. In this section of the room, you may need several accessories such as a soap dish for bar soap or a pump for liquid soap, a place to store your toothbrush, hand towels and a towel rack, a tissue dispenser, a makeup mirror, and a floor mat. Make an extensive list like this for every part of your bathroom so you know exactly what you need to find for each space. 

Identify Your StyleHow to Find the Right Accessories for Your New Bathroom-18k-1024x768

Before diving into the task of shopping, it is best to decide what the style of the room should be.  Whatever style you want there are accessories to match. Some examples of style options would include modern, rustic, beach-themed, minimalistic, among many other styles. When discussing your bathroom’s style you should also reference the look and feel of the rest of your house. Do you want the bathroom to match the rest of your house or are you okay with it being different? The last thing you want is to take the time to search for and buy your accessories only to find that what you have picked is not cohesive.

Think About Functionality

There are two things you need to ask yourself when thinking about function, what functions does my bathroom have and what functions does my bathroom need?  There are a number of different accessories which can add functionality to your bathroom, for example, you may need a trash can or a toilet paper holder.

As mentioned before, one decision you may need to make is what type of soap you and your family use. If you use bar soap, do you need to buy a soap tray? Or if you use liquid soap, do you need a dispenser? Or maybe your new bathroom already has a tray or dispenser built in and you do not need to buy either. Knowing what function your bathroom needs to serve will help you find the right accessories.

Establish a Budget

It’s best to know your budget before you go off to buy your accessories. Bathroom accessories can vary greatly in price, so it is important to know how much you can spend total. This will give you a better idea of what to pay for each item. Having a budget will keep your design goals realistic and help you to stay on track during the shopping process. 

Make a List 

Who doesn’t love checking off a list? After you have taken the time to know what you’re looking for, know your style, know their function, and know your budget it’s time to put together a shopping list of exactly what you need. While shopping you can easily check off an item you buy, make sure you don’t forget anything, and stay away from items you don’t need. Once you have your shopping list, it’s time to head to the store to accessorize the bathroom of your dreams!

Be sure you make the most out of your new bathroom and add all the right accessories to get the most out of your space. Taking a little time to research your bathroom accessories needs will help make your shopping trip go much smoother. As always, do not forget to contact your bathroom experts here at Luxury Bath for all of your designing needs. We are here to make the process as smooth as possible.

Fixtures such as shower heads and faucets no longer have to be dull and boring. Our customers can choose our oil rubbed bronze shower heads, towel rings, faucets and shower doors. Our faucets can even be single or double handled. 

If you and your family are wary of reaching for that bar of soap you’ve put on the rim of the tub only to have it slip out of your grasp, our dishes, shelves, and corner caddies hold soaps and shampoos securely until you’re ready for them. Our shelves also come in different sizes and shapes.

You can also choose from our rainfall showerheads, hand-held showerheads, and showers with body jets that turn to shower into a truly thrilling experience.

Tile

Tile is a staple part of many bathrooms. It is not only beautiful, but it is extremely strong and durable. If it does crack or chip, it is easy to replace. All that’s needed is the batch number to replace a tile with one the exact color and pattern. Tile is also easy to keep clean, especially if it’s glazed. We are pleased to offer and install just the right type of tile to perfect your bathroom.

Bathtubs

Few things are better than a good, long soak in a tub. We offer a wide variety of gorgeous tubs- after all, we aren’t called “Luxury Bath” for nothing! Check out our assortment of slipper tubs, soaking tubs and tubs installed on platforms faced with beautiful tile. We even offer updated tub/shower combinations and walk-in-tubs for our older customers.

Showers

Some of our customers want both a tub and a shower. Others don’t like baths, and the tub just takes up space in their bathroom. At Luxury Bath, we can accommodate any of these wants. Check out our gallery for the wide variety of showers that we offer for your bathroom remodel. They not only have luxurious tiles, but shelves, special shower heads and jets and transparent or translucent frameless doors.

Vanities

Vanities also don’t need to be utilitarian anymore. Indeed, a beautiful vanity with a gleaming marble top, cut crystal knobs, and paneled doors and drawers can be the focal point of the bathroom.

How to Decorate Your Bathroom for Fall

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

There’s no better way to get into the festive fall spirit than by surrounding yourself with fall decorations. Incorporating pumpkin scents and autumn colors will give your home a feeling of warmth and comfort for the entire fall season. Follow our favorite decorating tips to spice up your bathroom for the fall season.

Linens and CurtainsHow to Decorate Your Bathroom for Fall-shutterstock_750019069-1024x683

One quick and easy way to transition your bathroom décor is to change your linens and curtains for the new season. When you begin to make your shift to the fall season, start with your curtains, linens, and bath rugs. After summer, trade those bright, beach colored towels, and curtains for more subdued tones. Popular colors for fall tend towards neutrals, but if you’d like to add splashes of color consider burnt orange, mustard yellow, medium to dark greens, and a deep purple. The new colors will instantly give your space a whole new feel.

Seasonal Fragrances

The ambiance of a room isn’t complete without a nice, seasonal scent. Stock up on pumpkin spice everything. Candles, soaps, incense, and air fresheners are all great ways to incorporate smell into your space. Scents like wood fire, oak, cedar, and sandalwood are all great places to start. For a sweeter smell, try pumpkin, chai, apple pie, and cinnamon.

Updated Fixtures

As you update your bathroom’s scents and linens, you might also realize it is a good time to update the room’s fixtures. You may want to install new faucets, sinks, or shower heads. Bronzed fixtures are not only perfect for the fall season but remain a timeless and classic look all year round.

Add Accessories

With the larger items now in place and the scent of fall in the air, you can take the final step and add the finishing touch of accessories to your bathroom. These are the minor details that really pull a room together. Perhaps you might like a basket on the back of the toilet. Craft pinecones or greenery add additional seasonal elements to unify the space.

Giving your bathroom a fall makeover will put you in the mood for the season and is a great way to make your home feel welcoming and festive. For decorating, remodeling, and all of your other bathroom needs call the experts at Luxury Bath.

The Benefits of Tub to Shower Conversions

By | Bathroom Maintenance | No Comments

One popular bathroom remodeling project is the bathtub to shower conversion. While some people enjoy baths, renovating your tub can be a wise investment.  A shower not only improves efficiency and saves time and money, but modern shower construction materials and accessories also increase a home’s overall value. There are other benefits to think about when considering a conversion:

Mobility and SafetyThe Benefits of Tub to Shower Conversions-shutterstock_450308977-1024x683

Many people make the decision to replace their tubs with showers as they get older. Physically getting in and out of a tub can become strenuous if not dangerous with old age. You can also design your shower to have fixed seating and other accommodations. Seating options, including folding-style fixed seating are also a possibility. Showers greatly reduce the risk of falling that bathtubs present. If you are getting older, or live with an older family member, a shower is an overall safer option and will put you and your family members’ minds at ease.

Fewer Maintenance Hassles

Overall, bathtubs involve more time in cleaning and maintenance. As water splashes out of a tub onto the floor, moisture can seep under the flooring and into walls spaces. This often results in expensive repairs and mold remediation efforts.

Showers can cause higher humidity in a bathroom, but they are less likely to cause this type of damage. A strong bathroom fan or dehumidifying system also dry any moisture left over from a shower. More importantly, modern shower stalls are made with materials and designs that make cleaning simple. No matter how frequently the tub is cleaned, many homeowners have difficulty with accumulations of mold along caulk lines, soap scum, and hard water minerals along rounded interior surfaces. A shower decreases the chance of these types of accumulations happening with normal cleaning.

Relaxation

If you’re hoping to take back some physical space and reduce water usage, a tub to shower conversion is the perfect choice for you. With a handheld or dual showerhead, you can direct the water flow at one particular area where you need the water the most to soothe painful muscles or joints. Custom shower options also include body jets positioned in the walls of the shower that provide the exact same style of comfort and relief as tub jets.

A tub to shower conversion will add value to your home and save you time, money, and water in the long run. Our expert team can usually replace a tub with an easy-to-use and aesthetically pleasing shower in a single day. Luxury Bath has been proudly helping homeowners in the Greater Columbus region achieve their bathroom design and functionality goals for 20 years.

Tips for Planning Your Dream Bathroom Remodel

By | Bathroom Remodeling Tips | No Comments

Remodeling any part of your home can be fun to dream about. To actually get the results you want, however, takes a lot of planning. Here are some of our best tips for planning the remodel of your dreams:

Consider Your NeedsTips for Planning Your Dream Bathroom Remodel-shutterstock_797709472-1024x683

Are you sharing a master bath? Are you remodeling your own private bathroom? Or maybe you’re designing a bathroom space for a family of five?

Whatever your needs may be, it is important to narrow them down before beginning the remodeling process so that you can choose accessories for your space accordingly. For instance, a couple may want a large double vanity to efficiently get ready in the morning. However, for a large family, storage space may be a higher priority when redesigning.

Narrowing down your needs is the first step in crafting a plan for efficient use of your space and resources.

Do Your Homework

Getting ideas for your remodel can be as simple as reading reviews online or chatting with your neighbors who have already gone through the remodeling process. Visiting an in-person showroom is a perfect opportunity to get an idea of what remodeling options are available to you and talking to other homeowners can give you an idea of what’s possible.

Get Inspired

The sky is the limit when it comes to remodeling.  Even if you can’t make an in-person visit to a showroom, online searches can turn up hundreds of ideas for bathroom looks and styles – modern, traditional, or contemporary. Click through the Luxury Bath photo gallery to explore the unique bathrooms other Ohio homeowners have created.

Set Your Budget

Bathroom remodels can be done to fit budgets of any size, but nevertheless, it’s important to know what you can afford ahead of time. Create a realistic budget and begin to plan your remodeling fantasies around what you can comfortably afford.

What you have to work with will impact how much of your inspiration can be achieved, but don’t be discouraged—often, costs can be minimized by modifying your ideas. Our team will do everything we can to help you get all of your wants while not breaking the bank.  

Treat Yourself!

What makes this space a “dream” bathroom for you? Do you dream of marble- or stone-look showers and whirlpool tubs? Or maybe you want to focus on installing easy-to-clean glass showers and opening up the space. Make sure to throw in some design elements that you’ll love forever.

Explore tiled backsplashes or beadboard wainscoting. Play with dark wood cabinets and modern, unexpected sinks or open space and sleek, white counters. Get creative with lighting, flooring, and use of space. Whatever change you want to achieve, a Luxury Bath design specialist can help you make it happen every step of the way.

 

Preparing Your Bathroom for Back-to-School Success

By | Bathroom Accessories | No Comments

Preparing your family for back to school can be a stressful endeavor. Getting everyone back on a regular schedule is a daunting task. This can be particularly challenging when everyone needs to get ready to leave at the same time- especially when there is limited bathroom space. Here are several tips on how to prepare your bathroom to keep the back-to-school transition smooth and easy.

Create StoragePreparing Your Bathroom for Back-to-School Success-shutterstock_109952588-1024x745

Creating dedicated space in the bathroom for each family member minimizes clutter and helps cut down on time used to get ready in the morning. Mornings are crazy enough as it is, but knowing where everything is can help things run efficiently. Utilize extra space in linen closets or under counters to create a cubby for each family member. The use of bins keeps everything in one easily accessible place and clears counters for a neater appearance and easier cleaning.

Make it Shine

To make cleaning a breeze, daily maintenance is the key. Use a suction cup to hang a squeegee in the shower for quick and easy cleanup after each use. This saves time scrubbing mineral deposits and soap scum later. Keep a small bin of cleaning supplies in a cabinet under the vanity for a super fast daily wipe down of counters, sinks, and mirrors. Quick, daily maintenance efforts will save you from time-consuming weekly deep cleans.  

Privacy, Please

To accommodate multiple family members sharing one bathroom, adding a water closet for privacy can be a real game changer. Enclosing the toilet assures privacy while multiple family members need to be in the bathroom at once. A vanity area just outside of the bathroom is a great option to clear space for older kids who don’t want to share the bathroom with siblings or parents.

Declutter!

It can be easy to let old products pile up in your bathroom, but taking time to declutter will give you more storage and a better piece of mind. Take everything out of your medicine closet and evaluate. Can some things be thrown away? Can you combine things to save space? Dispose of old razors, shampoo bottles, and lotions that haven’t been used in a while.

Proper storage and organization are key to streamlining the back-to-school routine this fall. Following these tips will help you have the clean, clutter-free, and stylish bathroom of your dreams. And as always, contact us at Luxury Bath for any and all of your bathroom needs!

Quick Upkeep Tips After A Remodel

By | Bathroom Maintenance | No Comments

A bathroom remodel is one of the best investments that you can make for your home. With proper care and upkeep, you can keep your new bathroom functioning and looking great for years to come. Here are several upkeep tips to help you maintain the results of the bathroom remodel:

Stop MoistureQuick Upkeep Tips After A Remodel-shutterstock_347983049-1024x684

Water can cause mold and mildew to build up in your bathroom. Because of this, it is important to clean up moisture as soon as possible You should have everyone in your home wipe down the walls with a squeegee after they shower. Using water repellant on walls to help prevent soap scum and mineral buildup is also a good idea. This will save you lots of time and effort spent scrubbing and deep cleaning.

Keeping a window open in your bathroom is also a great way to reduce moisture. The more air that is circulated throughout your bathroom, the dryer the area will be.

Alternative Cleaning Methods

Many store-bought cleaners can leave behind toxic remnants. Because of this, it is always a good idea to use homemade cleaners when possible. Vinegar and baking soda create a powerful combination that can be used to clean faucets, pipes, and showerheads. This homemade alternative both better for the longevity of your bathroom and also environmentally friendly.

In addition to making your own cleaners, add baby oil to your cleaning routine. By adding a little bit of baby oil to a cloth and cleaning off appliances, you’ll keep your remodel bright, shiny, and looking as good as new.

Switch to Liquid Soap

Using liquid soap when possible will help to keep your bathroom neat and clean. Bar soap produces scum and leaves behind streaks and build up. It also harbors bacteria and creates a mess over time. Liquid soap is a neat, efficient way to keep things clean.

Keep Your Bathroom Clutter-Free

Over time, it is easy for your bathroom to become cluttered with deodorants, soaps, gels, and shampoos. A clutter-free bathroom not only looks better, but is cleaner and easier to maintain. Go through and get rid of any bathroom products that you don’t use or need.

If you still have trouble keeping your bathroom clutter-free, then you may need extra storage space. Purchasing storage cubbies or decorative baskets are a cute way to make extra storage space.

Clean Your Grout

Grout can be found in the crevices of your shower tile. Many people neglect cleaning this part of their bathroom, which can lead to growth and build up of mold and mildew. To effectively get rid of grout, mix bleach and warm water. This will remove any growth and get rid of bacteria. For optimal results, plan on cleaning your grout every month or so.

These upkeep tips will ensure that your remodel stays beautiful and clean for years to come. If you have any questions about remodel upkeeping, or you are considering a bathroom remodel, give us a call at Luxury Bath today!
