Take Advantage of your Space with a Bathroom Remodel

By | Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

Bathroom remodeling creates vibrant new decor and pleasant comfort within a home. Presently you may have a bathroom that was designed without the touch and insight a professional bathroom remodeler can provide. It could be that it was not constructed with materials that are easy to clean or designed to take advantage of the space available. When considering upgrading or remodeling your bathroom, contracting a professional  will give you much more desired results that will sustain the usage that is common with bathrooms in our homes.

When remodeling a bathroom with a limited amount of space, there are important considerations regarding both form and function.  Single handed fixtures versus separate hot and cold taps are a fantastic way to free up extra space, along with wall mounted toilets and faucets.  Wall mounted vanities can save space, however, the gap from the vanity to the floor often creates an underutilized empty space.  In some cases a vanity that stretches completely to the floor can actually help free up extra space for the entire bathroom by providing a more robust storage option.

A beautiful bathroom is a point of pride in our homes, whether it is for personal use or visitors. When your guests visit, be sure they are amazed by the accommodations that have been created in such a small space. Contact Luxury Bath Systems of Central Ohio today to begin discussing the bathroom transformation that you’ve been dreaming of.

Preventing Bathroom Mold with Acrylic Wall Systems

By | Bathroom Maintenance, Uncategorized | No Comments

Mold spores are most likely to develop in warm, damp areas. Unfortunately, the bathroom is often a high-temperature, high-humidity space, making it very susceptible to this issue. Routine use of vented ceiling fans or leaving bathroom doors and windows open after hot baths or showers will moderate temperature and humidity, however, this may not be sufficient for preventing all instances of mold and mildew growth. The good news is that the following tips will make it easy for you to maintain a pristine and mold-free bathroom.

Removing Mold:

Mold is best removed with a disinfecting solution of bleach and water. You can mix one-half cup of bleach in one gallon of water and use this to treat all affected surfaces. For stubborn areas, this solution can be sprayed on and allowed to sit for several minutes before wiping surfaces clean.

The best way to prevent mold and mildew is to remodel your bathroom with Acrylic Wall Systems.  Acrylic Wall Systems are a new innovation in bathroom designs that are easy to clean, relatively low in cost and aesthetically pleasing. Best of all, these surfaces are naturally resistant to mold. Installing Acrylic Wall Systems is a highly effective form of mold prevention, especially when paired with regular efforts to vent the bathroom and use cleaning solutions that include chlorine bleach.  Contact us today to learn about the many benefits of Acrylic Wall Systems, and explore your bathroom remodeling options!

Remodeling Your Master Bathroom

Your master bathroom is your retreat, your place of luxury.  Remodeling a master bathroom has its own unique challenges and also advantages, since it is a more personal area of your home.  Keep these tips in mind as you plan your design:

• Make sure that there’s a comfortable flow from your bedroom to your bathroom.
• Make sure to allocate spaces in your bathroom for different functions.
• The fixtures and materials you use in your bathroom remodel should match your tastes as well as the character of the rest of your house, but, remember that there is room for a little more creativity since it is one of the most personal spaces in your home.
• Your new, remodeled bathroom should have a pleasant view from multiple perspectives. If the bathroom door is open, make sure that the first thing you see from the bedroom is the beautiful bath you’ve installed. On the other hand, make sure that when you’re relaxing in your bath, that you can see the view outside your bedroom window, rather than the hamper overflowing with dirty laundry.                                                                                 • Consider what you want out of your new master bath, and how much time you will be using it.  Do you intend to spend a lot of time relaxing in it, or is it simply a place to shower and get ready for your day?  This is one of the most important aspects to consider as it will affect a lot of the different parts of the overall remodel.

Remember that you are not alone in the process!  Luxury Bath Systems of Ohio is here to help you determine the remodel that will best suit your taste, desire, and budget.  You are always welcome to stop by our showroom, or contact us to explore your bathroom remodeling options.

Shedding Light on Your Bathroom Remodel

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

During the process of bathroom remodeling, an often overlooked detail is lighting. Adequate illumination is something many home owners don’t think about, when planning for a new bath. But, the bathroom is one of the most functional and widely used spaces in the home. It should provide adequate lighting in key functional areas.

One of the places where adequate lighting is needed in the bath, is near the vanity or sink. Family members will use this area to shave, put on makeup, or style their hair. Poor illumination over the sink can make many of these tasks difficult. In many baths, a single, overhead fixture is simply not enough. The style of the new light fixtures should work with the vanity and the overall style of the bath.   Recessed ceiling lights just outside the shower area can be an effective and attractive option. Combining recessed lights with side or top vanity fixtures is a great way to add the layers of illumination needed for any task in the bathroom.

At Luxury Bath Systems of Central Ohio, we have many design options available to you.  Contact us today to get started on the bathroom of your dreams!

Considering Resale Value in Your Bathroom Remodel

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

When considering a design and theme for your bathroom remodel, it is often best to keep the look classic. Popular color schemes and trends change drastically over time, and picking features that are a little trendy today may not have mass appeal in the future. Sticking with a classic bathroom design can be key to resale value later on.

This is not to say your bathroom design has to be boring. Decorative mirrors, striking accent colors, and choosing your accessories with a theme in mind can all inject the personal touch that you desire.  It’s best to keep the color on items that can easily be changed, such as walls that can be repainted.  Remember that it’s a much more costly and labor intensive project to replace sinks, flooring, and tiling.  When selling your home, you can count on potential buyers paying close attention to your bathroom.  The design and look of the bathroom will not only affect their overall impression of your home, potential buyers will also be thinking about how much work they may have to put in to it on their own at some point.

Luxury Bath Systems of Central Ohio is here to help you consider the space you have to work with, and plan your design accordingly.  We’ve been in the business of bathroom remodeling for a long time, and we can help you design your dream bathroom for less, and help make it a timeless addition to your home.  Please contact our office today to explore bathroom remodeling options.

Select Eco-Friendly Fixtures For Your Bathroom Remodel

By | Bathroom Remodeling, Uncategorized | No Comments

When considering a green bathroom remodel, the most important facet in most homeowners’ minds these days is water conservation. With the number of green items on the market, that goal is easy to accomplish. By installing water-saving fixtures, you will not only reduce your bathroom’s footprint, but save money on your monthly water bills.

Products with a WaterSense label save up to 20 percent more water than average fixtures. There are many options to explore such as high-efficiency showerheads that won’t lessen water pressure and high-efficiency faucets with built-in aerators that reduce water flow. Low-flow and dual-flow toilets are much improved over those from just a few years ago. Dual-flow units let you choose water flow according to waste.

Energy efficient lighting fixtures are another way to update your bathroom and reduce your footprint simultaneously. Switch to compact fluorescent bulbs for vanity fixtures, while overhead, xenon lights produce less heat and save additional energy. Consider using as much natural light as possible to save even more energy.

With many energy efficient options available to you, your bathroom remodel can save you money in energy costs without sacrificing the look and feel that you desire. We invite you to visit our showroom in central Ohio, or contact us today to discuss the many options available to you for your bathroom remodel!
