So You Decided To Remodel Your Bathroom

Written by Judi Singleton

Bathroom remodeling ranks up there with kitchen remodeling inrepparttar U.S. I thought when I thought I should remodel my bathroom that a simple spruce up would do costing maybe tops $1000. I had a new toliet and vanity. I badly needed a new tub. I didn't count a wall having to come out to accomodate a new tub. Also that meant thatrepparttar 100130 new tub surround I had installed just two years before had to be taken out. The bids I got were closer to $10,000. Too much we would just have to put up withrepparttar 100131 old bath. My new toliet did not work very well. Whilerepparttar 100132 toliet itself looked just fine it did not flush well. The federal government outlawedrepparttar 100133 standard toilet homeowners have used for decades, so they are no longer being produced. Now, you must install a toilet that only uses 1.5 gallons of water per flush. So if you have an older toliet you may just want to replacerepparttar 100134 inards toliets don't wear out. Some higher-end toilets also come with pressure-assisted flush mechanisms. Available for years inrepparttar 100135 commercial market, these toilets use compressed air to assist in flushing. However, these toliets can cost from $150. to $500. So think about whether it is worthrepparttar 100136 new look orrepparttar 100137 toliet flushing well before you buy a toliet.

While you are thinking about remodelingrepparttar 100138 bath you might think about your needs changing in a few years and safety factors.

Bathrooms should be designed with floors that do not become slick when wet. Avoiding things like sharp corners, hard edges, and scalding hot water. This can make everyone using them safe.
