Upgrades to Consider Before Planning Your Bathroom Remodel

Bathrooms aren?t at the center of homes the way kitchens and living rooms are, but remodeling a bathroom can make a great difference in your daily life. But when you?re planning a bathroom remodel in Lakewood, CO, there are a number of factors to consider beyond the cosmetic design. Here are some upgrades to consider before you launch into the full planning and design of your new bathroom; these will make the remodel an even bigger enhancement to your home life.

You will want remodeling professionals working with you from the beginning of the design. You will eventually need to rely on the remodelers to do the work, so get in touch with a contractor like Striking Remodels by Bell to work with you from the start. Our remodelers will have many additional ideas for upgrades.

New bathtubs/showers

Although you can certainly do a basic facelift for your bathroom that leaves your standard bathtub and shower in place, we find that one of the best ways to freshen up the room is to get rid of the old fixtures and bring in a new one that will match the redesign features. You can also get advanced shower heads and whirlpools and air tubs that will improve your life with their relaxing, massaging features. Feel free to come and check out our plumbing remodeling showroom in Aurora, CO for ideas on your bathroom remodel.

Replace the plumbing

During a remodel, your bathroom?s piping will be exposed; this is the perfect time to have the former plumbing taken out and replaced. If you have an older home, the pipes may be made of outdated material prone to corrosion, like galvanized steel. You should definitely have that swapped out for copper or PEX piping. Replacing your plumbing also gives you more design freedom, since the new fixtures won?t need to work around the old piping.

Disability and Special Needs Accommodations

If you have people living in your home who have special needs because of disabilities or aging, remodelers can install a number of safety features into your bathroom: widened shower doors, grip bars, transfer chairs, ADA height toilets. In fact, Striking Remodels by Bell has specialists in place to help accommodate our customers with disabilities and special needs.
