Learning About Remodeling Contractors

Hi there. My name is Mark. I am here to talk to you about hiring remodeling contractors. When we had our third daughter, the home immediately felt way too small for our growing family. Since we planned on having more kids later in life, we decided to expand our current home. The choice made sense since selling would eliminate the equity we had built. On this site, I want to explore the services offered by remodeling contractors. I will talk about the different tools, techniques and materials used throughout the process of renovating homes. Thank you for visiting my site.

Modern Must-Have Features For Your Bathroom Remodel

If you are thinking of remodeling your bathroom, then you need to start thinking about the features you want to include. The saying "go big or go home" might even come to mind here. You want to make sure that the remodel avails you of all the convenience possible. 

There is such a wide variety of features in the current market that you could be easily spoilt for choice. Here are a few suggestions that could get you started on your hunt for modern features in your bathroom remodeling.

Spa Designs

The bathroom is the one place you get to be completely alone, for as long as you want. Make spending time with yourself fun by adding spa designs to your new bathroom. Designers like Young Huh suggest that people no longer want a utilitarian bathroom, but an "experiential space."

To get the spa effect, you can add a feature like mood-lighting that can be controlled remotely, or music of your choosing. You can also choose to add ultimate spa experience features like heated floor and towel racks, so there is never a chill moment in the bathroom. A steam shower would also do wonders for the spa experience.

Customized Tiles

One great modern feature that you should make use of in your bathroom remodeling is customized tiles. As the name suggests, customized tiles are tiles made to a specified design, color and can contain a specified image. Forget matching colors, you can now order the type, shape, texture, and print of tilling you want!

Experts use whatever images you provide or suggest to come up with a tile design that is specific to you. Of course, each project is specially priced, depending on the square footage you want to cover and the detail you need on the tiles.

Better Lighting

Most bathrooms are designed to be dark with the only light source being a couple of dull bulbs. This kills the spa experience you might be looking for. You should include lighting as part of the process in your bathroom remodeling.

The best way to improve lighting in your bathroom is to let natural light in. If your bathroom is at the edge of the house, you can add an extra window that is big enough to light up the room. Another modern trend you can adopt is installing a skylight. If the architecture allows, a skylight would work best as it lets in natural light during the day, and moonlight at night.
