Vessel sinks often come prepackaged with their own integrated faucet system or vanity.
The type of sink you choose will directly influence the type of material you pick for your new sink.
For instance, vessel sinks often appear in a more unique variety of materials such as glass, hammered bronze, marble, copper and even wood. You should choose styles and finish carefully because of the strong impact faucets make to overall decor.
You certainly have many choices of material As your first decision, you’ll likely pick a natural material such as granite or marble, or a synthetic one like manufactured quartz or Formica.
Granite and marble countertops are popular choices and can provide an upscale look to a new bathroom, but they come with some drawbacks. Because they’re porous, natural stone countertops can also be susceptible to stains if they’re not sealed on a regular basis. The most cost-friendly options include laminate countertops and ceramic tile countertops.
However, changing the look of a bathtub by changing a few key features can dramatically alter its appearance. Refinishing an existing bathtub can achieve the look of a brand-new tub and will consume much less time and money than replacing one. If you do decide to replace or renovate an existing bathtub or bathtub surround, plan to budget accordingly.
Depending on the style, size and material you choose, a bathtub itself can range from a few hundred dollars to many thousands of dollars.
When purchasing a new bathtub unit, don’t forget the additional costs of hardware, fixtures and installation, which is a job best left to a professional because faulty installation can result in water damage and mold or mildew growth.
Conventional bathtubs come in a range of materials including enamel-on-steel, cast iron, acrylic and fiberglass gel coat. More exotic options include composite materials, wood and cultured marble. Installation options include freestanding bathtubs, bathtubs installed into alcoves and those installed on platforms.
Soaking or garden tubs are deeper than conventional bathtubs, allowing the bather to immerse almost completely in the water. Whirlpool or Jacuzzi-style tubs feature multiple nozzles throughout the tub, which can provide a massaging effect. If you’re planning to renovate or alter your home’s shower, don’t forget that hiring a plumber may be necessary for any drain or water supply pipe alterations.
One-piece shower units consist of almost every necessary shower component — drain pan , shower walls, glass door, plumbing and fixtures — all in a prepackaged, self-contained unit.
These may be good product options if you’re seeking to install a new shower in an area such as a basement, as the one-piece configuration may cut down on time spent preparing the installation site or replumbing existing drain or supply lines. But if the unit begins to leak water or deteriorate overall, you may need to replace the entire system rather than just one component.
You can add glass shower doors and frames to an existing shower enclosure or bathtub/shower unit to give it new appeal while limiting the need for a whole-shower renovation. Be sure to think about all your options, including the metal frame materials, as they may corrode over time due to the constant exposure to water and steam.
You may also need to clean glass shower walls and doors more often to prevent soap scum and mineral buildups.
Synthetic shower surrounds offer many of the same easy installation benefits of one-piece shower units and maintenance is very easy. Generally made of vinyl, plastic, acrylic or PVC, the panels can be applied over existing flat walls and are available in many patterns and colors.
Tile offers you the most in terms of decorative choices when building a new shower area. Tiles can be made of porcelain, granite and other stones, ceramic materials or even glass. Glass block can wall off a shower area for privacy.
While you take a shower, its patterns obscure your form from others while still allowing light to penetrate into the stall and more natural light into the room. While it may be tempting, changing the location of the toilet can incur more expense than it’s worth since it would take a significant amount of time and effort to plumb new sewer drain lines. Wall lighting, effective for eliminating shadows by the mirror, is generally used in conjunction with overhead lights.
Wall lighting is particularly useful for illuminating areas that require extra light. Sconces installed on either side of the mirror provide additional light for grooming. Strip lights installed over the mirror also ensure adequate, even light for grooming tasks.
