Modern bathrooms are beautiful and can add an elegant feature to any home. If you’re remodeling and not sure what style to choose for your bathroom, look at what others have done to get some ideas. You can find pictures of various styles of decor online at decorating websites. Even though the bathroom isn’t the center of most people’s homes, having a beautifully styled design can get you noticed by guests and family because it stands out — most people have a boring, plain bathroom that doesn’t stick in your memory.
One important consideration when remodeling your bathroom is what fixtures to include. You don’t want to go overboard but it’s nice to have some features that allow you to relax and unwind after a long day. Whirlpool shower baths are one way to add a practical feature that you are sure to use every day. There are various options for bathroom sink vanity units, walk in baths, and water saving toilets that you might want to think of including. If you’re overwhelmed with the prospect of completely redoing your bathroom, keep reading to get some ideas on the best, most useful, and budget-friendly fixtures to install in your new bathroom.
- Walk in bathtubs
This is a great option for anyone who loves taking baths but has a problem accessing the bath, which can be difficult physically. This option includes doors that open inward or outward and form a watertight seal that allows the person to take a relaxing bath. A corner walk in tub is an upgrade that gives more space to enjoy some time soaking in the tub.
- Whirlpool shower baths
This option is a fusion between showers, bathtubs, and hot tubs. They are a combo between a shower and a bath, like many bathrooms have, but they have the added benefit of water jets that make a regular bath feel like a spa experience. This is a great way to add a special feature to any bathroom without spending too much money and going outside of your budget.
- High efficiency (HE) toilets
HE toilets combine the least water usage with maximum flushing power, which can serve to save money in the long term. The small increase in price compared to traditional toilets will be more than paid for by future savings on water bills. It’s also a great way to do your part to help the environment, because excessive water usage is a concern in today’s world.
- A “Jack and Jill” bathroom
This requires a little more planning and possible more construction than other options, but depending on your needs for the bathroom, it can work well with certain floor plans. It involves two entryways from separate rooms that go into one bathroom. It’s especially useful if you have an inconvenient floorplan that you’re looking to improve upon in your next renovation.
- Double sinks
If there are several people competing for use of the bathrooms and this makes mornings hectic, this design works well because it allows two people to get ready at the same time.
