Are you planning a bathroom remodel in the Fort Worth, Texas area? Remodeling the bathroom is one of the best investments a homeowner can provide that increases home value.
In the market today, there are so many choices available in plumbing fixtures that just making a choice may be slightly daunting. Especially when you realize you must consider if your choice will fit. Drain and faucets may be in a different location and plumbing may have to be relocated. Then you must consider that power will have to be provided to the new hot tub or to the television within the mirror. Perhaps existing plumbing is outdated and requires being brought to current codes. There are a multitude of problems that can be encountered with remodeling and plumbing is not excluded.

Current trends for bathroom installations and remodels are reflecting that more people are moving into customized luxury and personal indulgence. Many homeowners today want a personal and relaxing spa like bathroom retreat to relax in after a hard day’s work.
More than likely you already have some bathroom remodeling ideas of what you want in your relaxing new bathroom retreat. But if you haven’t reached that point just yet, visit bathroom and plumbing showrooms, annual bath expos and designer show houses. Look through magazines and brand name websites, and you can check out books from your library. Keep a folder of photos cut out from magazines, and if you find elements of design that you like in borrowed books print a color copy of the photos and list brand and product names of features that you like. If water conservation is a goal for your household, the bathroom is a great place to install low flow fixtures and there is no better time to install them than during a remodel.
Once you have a picture in your mind of what you want you will next choose your materials. Do you want to save money with fiberglass sinks, showers and tubs? Or alternately do you plan to buy the very best with granite or marble countertops, automated toilets and stone or glass tiles? Today the options are almost limitless and you are limited only by a budget and your imagination.
If you can afford it consider hiring a well recommended designer for the knowledge and ideas they can bring to the table. If you have your doubts consider that a designer can make suggestions to maximize space and resale value. Did you know that luxurious showers are more popular than huge tubs? Wider doorways as well as shower doors with no lip at the bottom are preferred and will open your home to a wider market of potential buyers as these features will enable access for handicapped persons and the elderly. Grab bars are often used and blend seamlessly with today’s innovative designs. A designer can guide you on what’s hot and what’s not, what’s available and what brings the best resale price. So while you must budget for extra, in the long run, they can save you money and increase the resale value of your home.
If great style, looks and luxury are your goal, consider a cozy pass through bathroom fireplace that will provide both warmth and beauty. Towel warming drawers, and luxurious lighting over a hot tub are a big bonus for potential buyers as well as super pleasers for your own enjoyment. Heat strips under cold ceramic tile or stone floors are a wonderful bonus and will be very much appreciated, especially in the cold of winter when tile is colder on the feet.
Sound systems and televisions are really hot in the bath, and televisions that double up as mirrors are increasingly popular in today’s luxurious bathroom retreat. These televisions are only visible when it is on, at other times it is a mirror.
If your bath shares space with a washer and dryer consider moving them for the most attractive bathroom possible. In a luxurious bathroom they are a design killer regardless to how high tech and attractive they are.
You will want to add some acoustical softening materials if you are having a television or sound system installed in the bathroom. Rugs, curtains, even plush towels on an open shelf can provide this.
If you envision a luxurious bath you want it to be a calm and relaxing retreat that soothes mind and weary muscles. In today’s workplace it isn’t uncommon for workers to be filling the positions once occupied by several workers. When you work hard you deserve a little luxury and relaxation in your life.
