How to Prepare for a Bathroom Design and Remodeling Project-329759_10151058721269811_2132287485_o-300x198Thinking about remodeling your bathroom? Bathroom remodeling is an exciting home improvement project but can also feel overwhelming at first. Here are a few things to consider to get you started on the right path.

Budget

The first thing you should consider is your budget for a bathroom remodel. Do you have a specific budget you have to stick to? Is there a range you can work within? Make sure you know how much you can afford to spend on your project. And don’t worry, there is a bathroom design for every budget!

Goals

Next you should think about everything you would like to accomplish with the remodeling project. What kind of bathtub do you want? Are you converting your bathtub to a shower? Are you interested in a speciality tub? What sort of bathroom accessories would you like to add?

Other goals you want to consider are things like light fixtures, towel bars and windows. Are they being replaced? What about a dimmer switch? Is the window in your bathroom large enough?

If you need some inspiration, you can always visit your local bathroom design and remodeling showroom to explore complete bathroom setups in person. You will be able to see all the design colors and styles available and pick out what bathroom setup fits your taste, needs and budget.

Estimate

Once you know exactly what you want to accomplish in your bathroom remodel, schedule an in-home estimate with a professional bathroom remodeler. A bathroom remodeling company will let you know exactly what the job will cost and can also provide more details on additional options available to you.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to remodeling your bathroom! Take some time and design a new bathroom you will be happy with.

How a Tub to Shower Bathroom Conversion Works

By | Bathroom Remodeling, Bathtub Conversions, Uncategorized | No Comments

If you have a bathtub in your bathroom, then you have the space for a walk-in shower.

How a Tub to Shower Bathroom Conversion Works-Grand-16-225x300So many of us use our bathtubs to shower. Converting that tub to a shower just makes sense. A tub to shower conversion is a cost effective way to remodel your bathroom and maximize your space. A standard sized bathtub (5 feet) takes up more space than people realize and provides a nice space to install an amazing shower.

Plumbing

Good news! Your plumbing will not have to be replaced. Bathtubs typically have right or left drains and a shower pan can be installed with a right or left drain as well. Once the shower pan is installed and leveled, they are sloped so they drain properly.

Acrylic Shower Walls

There are 22 different options when it comes to acrylic shower wall systems. They are installed from floor to ceiling and have lots of options for plumbing fixtures – hand held and shower head. The acrylic we use is easy to clean. We use a 4-layer high-molecular acrylic that is the most durable, chemical resistant acrylic available. It also has the added benefit of Microban, which is the same ingredient that Colgate puts into their toothpaste to kill gingivitis. So, not only is it safe to ingest, but it also kills bacteria on contact between cleanings.

With tub to shower conversions, we are able to take out an old bathtub and install a new walk-in shower with plumbing, walls, fixtures and accessories in just one day.

Stop dreaming about the pictures in magazines with amazing showers with multiple shower heads, body sprays, and benches…now you know that you have the space in your  own bathroom to create a shower like this too!

You can learn more about tub to shower conversions by visiting our Shower Units page or by visiting our bathroom remodeling showroom in Columbus, Ohio.

Tips for Remodeling Your Bathroom on a Budget

By | Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Cost, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

A small budget shouldn’t stop you from having the bathroom of your dreams!

Here are some things to consider:

Buy Supplies Yourself

Tips for Remodeling Your Bathroom on a Budget-DSC_0561-300x198The cost of bathroom remodeling materials can definitely add up. These costs can easily be reduced though by doing the shopping yourself. Also look for special deals and closeouts on discontinued items. These will be much cheaper and can save you big time on budget!

Start With a Small Project 

Simply a new coat of paint can bring new life to your old bathroom. It can even make a cramped space feel bigger if you use the right colors. Make sure you spend some time thinking about what colors you like best because this could be a starting point to choosing a whole new color scheme for your bathroom and accessories!

Another option is a beadboard. This is easy to install, is inexpensive and can even offer extra protection to the lower half of your bathroom walls. A beadboard can also jazz up an empty bathroom wall. Remember to consider your color scheme here!

Look For Coupons or Special Deals

Tips for Remodeling Your Bathroom on a Budget-250offDon’t be shy about asking about special deals and looking around for coupons to save even more money. We offer a special coupon to our customers to save $250 off a bathroom remodeling project in Columbus, Ohio.

Accessories and Hardware 

Tired of your old towel bars or robe hooks? This bathroom hardware is easy and inexpensive to replace. You can even buy a whole matching set to pull your theme or color scheme together. Also, think of other ways to add functional accessories to your bathroom. A shelving unit or cabinet above the toilet looks nice and provides extra storage for towels. If you already have several cabinets and shelving units in your bathroom, consider refinishing them to add a fresh look to your bathroom.

Bathtub Liners

Installing a bathtub liner is a great, inexpensive alternative to purchasing and installing a whole new tub. Remember, it is best to work with a professional to install a bathtub liner to get the best installation and warranty. Bathtub liners are custom fit to your bathtub and look and feel like a brand new tub!

See, bathroom remodeling doesn’t have to cost a small fortune! We hope these tips will help you create a brand new bathroom in 2014.

For our readers in Columbus, Ohio, we invite you to visit our bathroom remodeling showroom for more ideas and inspiration on planning your new bathroom.

Bathroom Remodeling: Building a Better Bathroom With the Onyx Collection

By | Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

Bathroom Remodeling: Building a Better Bathroom With the Onyx Collection-IMGP1105-300x225Beautiful. Elegant. A touch of class. A sense of style. These are the words you want to hear from friends and family when they see your newly remodeled bathroom. But there’s one other word that will bring you peace of mind as you prepare to remodel – durable. A beautiful bathroom is a sight to behold, but what good is it if it’s not built to last? That’s why we want to introduce you to a long-lasting option you’ll want to consider when you are planning your bathroom remodeling project – the Onyx Collection.

The Onyx Difference

The big deal in bathrooms these days is tile. And why not? Tile adds the right touch of elegance to an area. Our Onyx Collection goes the extra mile because Onyx has the look of tile combined with the ease of installation and cleanup of an overlay. Onyx products have very few pieces, so installation is a breeze. And by eliminating grout lines, the possibilities of leaking and cracking are reduced. And even better, The Onyx Collection is made in the USA!

Onyx Can Make Your Bathroom Beautiful

One of the best aspects of bathroom remodeling is the fact that the only limits are your imagination and budget. We’ll help you work within your budget, and the Onyx Collection allows you to let your imagination run wild. Grab some remodeling magazines, picture yourself in one of those luxurious bathrooms you see on TV, go online and print out some pictures of stunning bathroom spaces. Then, head on in to our bathroom remodeling showroom in Columbus, OH and see how the Onyx Collection can bring your imagination to life!

Want a sparkling, polished, shiny look? Go for the gloss finish. Need something softer and more natural-looking? Make it a matte finish. Color your world with a choice of hues from Snowswirl to Storm. Shower bases, wall panels, window sills, table tops, bowls, sinks…you name it, we’ve got it. We can even custom fit our products to meet your specific spacing needs.

Onyx Goes On and On and…

Bathroom Remodeling: Building a Better Bathroom With the Onyx Collection-onyx3-206x300Forever. That’s a mighty long time. And it’s a word we take seriously. Every product manufactured in the Onyx Collection carries with it the following guarantee: “Yes!  Guaranteed Forever”. How can we make that claim? Simple. It’s all in the science.

Our Onyx bathroom remodeling products have a composition of two-thirds alumina trihydrate and one-third polyester resin. Basically, the same stuff that makes up the roofing material and electrical wire coating on your house and the plastics in your car are at work to bond your bathroom materials together.  It’s tough stuff…but it’s also easy to clean. Non-abrasive household cleaners will do the trick. You can even use kitchen dishwashing soap to keep your new Onyx bathroom sparkling.

If you’d like, we can get started right away. Give us a call here at Luxury Bath of Columbus, OH to schedule a free in-house estimate or stop by our bathroom remodel showroom to see how the Onyx Collection can bring a touch of elegance and style into your bathroom space.

Columbus Bathroom Remodeling: Pick Acrylic to Do the Trick!

By | Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Materials, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

Options. That’s what we’re all about here at Luxury Bath of Columbus, OH. When it comes time to remodel your bathroom, we want you to know that there are a number of choices you can make to build the perfect bathroom. One of those choices can be made right at the foundation – what material will you choose to beautify your bathroom space? In this article, we want to highlight a choice that is proving to be fast, cost-effective and long-lasting…acrylic.

The Science of Acrylic

Columbus Bathroom Remodeling: Pick Acrylic to Do the Trick!-luxsan3000-300x266

Here at Luxury Bath, we are the area’s exclusive provider of Luxsan multilayer and single layer acrylic bathroom remodeling products. These are the finest acrylic surfaces you can find and their composition is nothing short of amazing.

The Luxsan 3000 series features a four-layer construction. The adhesion layer is topped with a layer of ABS plastic which is impact-resistant and extremely durable. On top of that is a high-molecular acrylic layer pigmented with your choice of color. A clear high-molecular weight acrylic layer tops it all off. With the Luxsan 4000, you have an added layer of granite particulates. For the single layer Luxsan 5000, your choice of color runs all the way through the durable 150 gauge layer.

What Can You Do With All of This Acrylic?

Just about anything you can dream up! Instead of tearing out an old tub, save money and time by having an acrylic tub liner custom fit right over top of the old tub. Feel like having a luxury shower installed? You can easily convert your current tub space to an acrylic shower or have a separate tub and shower space installed to accommodate whatever mood you’re in. You can even opt for a walk-in tub in order to meet the special needs of a loved one.

Benefits of Your New Bathroom

If you’re considering a bathroom remodel, you are more than likely experiencing some issues such as cracking, leaking, mold and mildew. With acrylic, those problems are a thing of the past. Acrylic is a non-porous material, the products are custom-fit and they feature Microban, which helps prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. No caulking, leaking or cracking. And clean up is a snap! Just try some simple dish soap and water to bring sparkle and shine to your space.

Once your dream bathroom is a reality, you’ll find the time you spent worrying about maintenance is now spent admiring the beauty of your new acrylic products…and relaxing in your beautiful tub or shower.

Be sure to schedule an in-home estimate or drop by our Columbus, Ohio bathroom showroom to check out the wide variety of styles, colors, textures and products available in our acrylic line. We’re sure that once you see what we have to offer at Luxury Bath, you’ll be ready for a stunning new look for your bathroom!

Creating a Wall of Wonder

Tired of swinging that shower curtain to the side and staring at that plain wall lining?  Do you feel like you’re stepping into a closet when you step into your shower?  Let us transform it for you!  There are a couple of different ways in which we can do this.  Let’s take a look at each:

Acrylic

  Acrylic wall systems offer customers a low-maintenance, cost-effective way of bringing luxury to the bathroom.  At Luxury Bath, we are the exclusive supplier of 4 and 5 layer acrylics making it the most durable, chemical resistant acrylic available. 

All of our acrylic wall systems, accessories, and silicone feature the anti-microbial protection of Microban.

  There are dozens of acrylic options available to design the look of your wall system including solid acrylics, or acrylics that have the appearance of tile, marble, travertine or granite.

  Our acrylic wall systems are installed floor to ceiling and cut on site to accommodate your space.

Onyx

A specialized wall system that adds an extra touch of elegance to your décor.

A true solid surface in which the color goes all the way through the material.

Over a dozen different color options are available in glass, matte or tile finish which can mimic the look of stone…without the added maintenance.

Like acrylic, Onyx is a non-porous material which reduces cracking, will not stain and allows for easy clean up.  Try something as simple as dish soap…it works!

Beautify your entire bathroom with Onyx by incorporating matching accessories including vanity tops, corner shelves, shower seats/benches, waste baskets and toilet seats.

Why Choose?

At Luxury Bath, you even have the option of doing a little mixing and matching to build your dream bathroom space.  You can choose to go with an acrylic wall system accented with Onyx accessories.  These amazing systems truly compliment each other and will fit any style.

 Bathroom Remodeling Made Easy: Walk-in Tubs-DSC_0172-198x300

After a long, hard day, there’s nothing quite like a soak in a relaxing bathtub.  If you happen to have the added challenge of advanced age, or health issues such as chronic pain, arthritis or injury, the advantage of having a walk-in tub is sure to eliminate some of your stress and anxiety.  But as you think about your bathroom remodel, you might be asking yourself if you can you still have the luxurious bathroom of your dreams while addressing your personal therapeutic needs.  You can, and we here at Luxury Bath in Columbus, OH can show you how.

Which Tub is Right for You?

You know what your body needs and what it can take.  Perhaps you’ve tried grab bars or handles on your current tub, but those options might not fit the bill and you’re now considering a walk-in tub.  A walk-in tub can be a different experience for folks and until you can take one for a “test drive”, so to speak, you won’t know which tub is right for you.  We invite you to walk in to our Luxury Bath showroom and walk in to one of our walk-in tubs!  Try it out.  Which tub is the right fit for your space?  Will it accommodate your physical limitations?  Will it beautify your bathroom?  Our master plumber and expert remodelers will answer all of your questions.

Safe, Efficient and Long-lasting

It’s difficult to relax in a tub if you’re worried about the tub itself.  At Luxury Bath, we address those concerns.  All of our Luxury Bath walk-in tubs are ADA compliant.  They feature a low 6-inch step for safe and easy entry, a grab bar and a 17-inch high seat. 

We offer a no-leak door lock with a handle that’s a cinch to maneuver, a secondary drain to catch water runoff and seal the deal with a specialized circular seal which forms an even tighter bond as the tub fills with water.

Our walk-in tubs are made of Gel-Coat fiberglass or acrylic and feature a stainless steel frame that will not rust or corrode.

Options?  We’ve Got ‘Em!

A glance through our marvelous showroom will illustrate the options available to you.  There are walk-in tubs designed for soaking and ones designed for therapy.  These feature air jets, hydrotherapy, or you can try out a dual system of water and air jets.  Shampoos and soaps can be positioned just about anywhere with our wide assortment of shelving areas.  And there’s never a need to worry about your shower-loving guests as optional shower nozzles or handheld shower sprayers can be easily installed.
