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!

Bathroom Remodeling: Keep It Looking New

Bathroom Remodeling:  Keep It Looking New-016pm-225x300

We certainly hope you’re enjoying a newly remodeled bathroom thanks to our team here at Luxury Bath of Columbus, OH.  If you are, or even if you’ve seen the dazzling examples of dream bathrooms in our showroom, you’ll notice that one of the reasons our bathrooms are so stunning is that they are immaculately clean.  You’d be surprised how many people neglect this one simple step in maintaining a beautiful bathroom space.  In this article, we’d like to present some helpful hints to keep your bathroom in tip top shape.

Cleaning – Make it a Habit

How often do you find yourself scrubbing and spritzing right before friends and family stop by?  Don’t worry – we’ve all been guilty of that.  Unfortunately, by letting the bathroom cleaning go unattended for a while, you’re just making the work that much more difficult.  Bathrooms should be cleaned weekly at a minimum.  We also recommend taking a few minutes each and every day to do some minor cleaning (wipe down the counter and products, pick up clutter, put towels in a laundry hamper or basket) so your weekly cleaning doesn’t become overwhelming.

Keep Your Supplies Close

It’s easier to clean a bathroom when the cleaning products are handy.  Each bathroom should have a scrub brush for the toilet.  They’re inexpensive and you are much more likely to clean the commode often if the brush is on site.  Organize your rags, scrub brushes, glass cleaner, soap and tub cleaning products so that they’re not cluttered.  Be sure to keep them out of the reach of children and make sure the cleaning products have child-proof caps.

Luxury Bath Products Make Cleaning Easy!

If you’ve remodeled using Luxury Bath products, you already know how easy it is to clean the bathroom.  For normal everyday cleaning, we suggest using a mild soap, such as dish detergent and water with a soft wash cloth.  Avoid using scouring pads or abrasive cleansers as they will dull the surface over the years.

Other recommended cleaning products are Formula 409 and X-IT.  Vinegar and water may also be used to soften water minerals.  If you need to use a disinfectant, try Clorox Bleach diluted with water to sanitize the enclosure.

We do NOT recommend using the following:  Original Clean Shower, Clean Shower for Plastic Showers and Glass, Soft Scrub, Dow disinfectant cleaner, Lysol disinfectant cleaner, acetone, Lestoil, ammonia, fingernail polish remover, aerosol cleaners, or scouring pads.  Again, these products can dull the surface and could even void your bath product warranty.

Should you have any questions about cleaning products, feel free to contact us here at Luxury Bath of Columbus, OH.  Our friendly, knowledgeable team can provide some further assistance about the best ways to keep your Luxury Bath products sparkling. By following these guidelines, you’ll never have to be embarrassed when friends or family decide to make an unannounced visit.  When that doorbell rings…you’ll always be ready to show off your beautiful bathroom!

Making the Decision to Remodel Your Bathroom: Bathroom Updating Tips

By | Making the Decision to Remodel Your Bathroom, Uncategorized | No Comments

As a homeowner, you’re faced with decisions on a frequent basis. One of those decisions could be whether or not to remodel. If you choose to give your home an updated look, the next question is, “Where should I start?” Here at Luxury Bath of Columbus, OH, we naturally suggest you start with the room where you get each and every day off to a great start – your bathroom. Before you begin the bathroom remodel, however, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.

See the Big Picture

First, determine how the bathroom is being used. If this is a space where you’ll taking a nice, long soak after a tough day at work, you’ll probably want to increase the usable area to accommodate a spacious tub. If the primary use is to grab a quick shower, brush those pearly whites and hit the road in the morning, then a tub-to-shower conversion might do the trick. Will you and your significant other be sharing the space at the same time? You might consider dropping from a double sink to a single and maximize the counter space. Since we handle everything from floor to ceiling including cabinets, floor tile and commodes, be sure to check out our showroom. Our design team can even help you come up with a few ideas.

Count the Cost

Once you have an idea of what you want, it’s time to work up a budget. You can work on the project in phases, but you might be surprised at how affordable an entire bathroom remodel can be. At Luxury Bath, we can work with your budget to ensure you’re getting the most for your money. We have a wide variety of fixtures, accessories and materials…and, we even offer a “90 days same as cash” program.

One other note on budgeting – be sure to factor in some of the unexpected costs such as hidden water damage to walls and the floor. Again, our team can help you in spotting those ahead of time.

Finding the Perfect Fit

It’s one thing to see a picture of a stunning bathroom in a magazine and it’s quite another to use that bathroom on a daily basis. For example, a shower bench that looks amazing in print, might not be the most comfortable seat for you. That’s why you’ll want to get a feel for all of the elements that will be placed in your remodeled bathroom. Walk through our showroom, have a seat, stand at the sink, take hold of the grab bars. It’s your room…customize it to your needs.

As with any remodeling project, you want to see the big picture. At Luxury Bath of Columbus, Ohio, we can help you bring that picture into focus.

Making the Decision to Remodel Your Bathroom: Return on Investment (ROI)

By | Bathroom Remodeling Cost, Making the Decision to Remodel Your Bathroom, Uncategorized | No Comments

You’re always looking for the best value. Whether it’s a refusal to pay the sticker price on a new car…or watching your grocery bill go down by clipping coupons, you never want to pay more than should. Why should your home be any different? It doesn’t matter if you’re flipping the house, planning to sell in the near future or hoping to live out your golden years in it, making your home more valuable is always a good idea. At Luxury Bath of Columbus, OH, we’ve got a few ideas on how you can do just that.

Is a Bathroom Remodel Worth the Cost?

If the cost of a full remodel (average or upscale) is a bit more than you can afford right now, there are always some low-cost ways of giving your bathroom a fresh, updated look. Give us a call and our team can give you some answers to match your budget.

Do Your Homework

Making the Decision to Remodel Your Bathroom: Return on Investment (ROI)-before-after-1-300x200With the number of houses we’re seeing on the market today, you want to make sure yours stands out from the rest. Talk to a real estate agent to see what buyers are looking for in a bathroom. Go online to check out some houses that have sold recently. How many full or half-baths do they have? That kind of information can prove to be invaluable if you’re considering putting your house on the market.

It’s also a good idea to look through a few magazines, or better yet…stop by our showroom, to discover what type of neutral color schemes are available for your bathroom remodel. Going with timeless colors that are easy to match with the accessories of potential buyers can really set your bathroom apart.

In the end, only you can answer the question of whether or not a bathroom remodel will result in the best value for you and your family. But our team at Luxury Bath of Columbus, OH is here to help you answer that question. Invest a small amount of time with us today…and we’ll help you with an investment that can last in the years to come.

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.
