Easy Bathroom Remodeling Tips for 2012 - Things to Consider w/ Your Remodel
Choose soothing colors when redecorating. Updating the accessories, such as towels and the shower curtain, and repainting the walls is an inexpensive way to bring color into the bath. Although stay away from dark green, as it can give your appearance in the mirror a sickly tone.
Take a shower instead. The trend for large automated baths has cooled, mostly because homeowners realized they rarely used them. Large showers are becoming more popular, especially because they provide easy access and universal use regardless of mobility, vs. bathtubs.
Conceal the toilet. Setting the toilet apart from the rest of the bathroom with a partial wall or door of its own provides privacy and also makes for a more attractive bathroom.
Layer your light. Overhead fixtures can cast shadows on your face when you're trying to shave or apply makeup. Instead, create different layers of light, including wall-mounted sconces or other vertical fixtures on either side of your sink.
Building or remodeling a new bathroom is one of today's most popular home projects. The modern bathroom has become stylish, efficient, comfortable, and beautiful. A bathroom re-design can add to your comfort and enjoyment, as well as raise the value of your new home.
Paint: As long as a painted wall is sound and not made of an unsuitable material such as sheet paneling, it can be tiled over. Before we tile a painted wall, we remove all loose painting and roughen the surface with abrasive paper. Then the wall is cleaned to remove dust with a damp rag. Do not use chemical paint removers because they may have an adverse effect on the adhesive.
Bathroom plumbing advice: A horizontal run of hubless cast iron pipe should be supported at every joint with the special clam. A long run of pipe between joints should be supported every 4 feet on average. Often, two shapped pieces of strap steel that are held together at the ends with bolts are attached at floor level on vertical runs.
