Tax season is here. It's time to start thinking of ways to spend your tax refund. If you're tired of looking at your old bathroom, you can use the extra money to change things up a bit. You can do more than just change the paint and the flooring. In fact, you can hire a remodeling contractor to give your bathroom an entirely new look. Now that you're ready to give yourself the gift of a new bathroom, here are four projects you should include in the remodeling plans.
1. Step Into a New Frameless Glass Shower
If you've still got the same old fiberglass bathtub and frosted tub enclosure, it's time for a change. It's time to install a frameless glass shower. Go ahead and get rid of the outdated bathtub that has you soaking in germs and dirty water. Frameless glass showers will open up your bathroom, and give you plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy a relaxing shower. Best of all, since the shower enclosure is frameless, you won't be left to deal with soap scum buildup in the tracks.
2. Upgrade to a State-of-the-Art Toilet
You spend a lot of time in the bathroom, especially on the toilet. When you're using the toilet, you'd like it to be comfortable. That's why you need to upgrade to a state-of-the-art toilet. Don't settle for standard, when you could have one that opens and closes automatically, has push-button flush capabilities, and can even rinse you off with a stream of warm water when you're done. On top of that, your new state-of-the-art toilet will save you water too.
3. Bring Some Natural Light Into the Room
If you're tired of those dirty, frosted windows you have in your bathroom, that doesn't let any natural light get through, it's time to get them replaced. If you're in the process of having your bathroom remodeled, you can have your windows replaced at the same time. Adding a garden window to your bathroom will allow plenty of natural light to filter into your bathroom. Not only that, but your new windows will help make your bathroom look bigger.
4. Keep Your Feet Warm
Bathroom floors can get pretty cold during the winter. There's nothing worse than freezing your feet when you try to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. That's where a new floor heater comes in handy. Floor heaters can be installed right underneath your ceramic tile. When the heater is on, your floor will stay nice and warm, and so will your feet.
