Imagine having a large walk-in shower and once you get inside there is a magnificent bathtub. As strange as this sounds and as difficult as it might be to picture, it is growing in popularity. Walk-in showers and all of the technology that comes along with them are getting more and more innovative. Having this kind of space allows you to have dual-sided sprayers and waterfall shower heads. You also get the benefits of having a beautiful bathtub. You can take a bath and then hop out and rinse off right afterwards. This is a great option if you are bathing kids and/or pets. Everything is all enclosed, preventing messes and any sort of damage.
A built-in tub is very easy to install and maintain. It can also be very customizable – for example, putting unique tiles up the sides of the shower wall or on the floor and choosing the shape of your tub, etc.
An outdated bathroom is not the right way to wake up in the morning. If you’re thinking of doing some renovating in your home, your shower is the first place to start. If you don’t already have a walk-in shower, you need one. Walk-in showers are popular upgrades for a couple of reasons: they are desirable for all ages, even the elderly, adults with mobility issues, as well as large families with pets.
Next, you need to install a sit down bench. Shower seating can be useful for the older population, but shower seating can also be extremely relaxing and handy as a foot rest for shaving.
An easy switch you can make is to install glass shower doors instead of a shower curtain. This will help let the natural light into your bathroom. Glass will also make your bathroom feel larger than it actually is without a distracting shower curtain to block the view.
Lastly, incorporate accessories such as built-in shelving, a new shower head(s), and speakers for music. All of these installations are budget-friendly and will increase the resale value of your home by a generous amount.

Floor heating is a luxury in a home; something potential buyers will love. You won’t have to worry about getting cold as soon as you get out of your hot shower in the chilly winter mornings. Floor heating in the bathroom heats both the floor and the entire bathroom. You have the control to set the temperature and set the timer. Floor heating is great because it’s easy to install. It’s the perfect remodel project!
For a bigger project, you can install hydronic floor heating, which is the use of hot water pipes that run throughout the house, therefore, heating the entire house rather than just the bathroom. The initial investment is higher, however, hot water comes from a water heater so the hydronic floor heating could lower monthly costs over time. Heated bathroom floors are 25% more energy efficient than traditional HVAC systems. An added benefit is that there is no maintenance. Once they’re installed, there’s no need to worry about checking up on them annually.
