If you don't like the shower head and shower area in your master bath and you are ready for an upgrade, there are a few things that you can do to impact the look of the space drastically. You can make a big impact and add a lot of value to your master bathroom if you make some changes, you just want to talk with the professionals and make sure that you do everything right. Consider the following things when you are imagining and designing your changes.
Talk with a Plumber
You want to have a licensed plumber come to your house so they can see if the plumbing can be moved above the shower. This can be a problem if there are ventilation ducts or vents above the shower, or if you can't get the plumbing up to that area. The plumber will evaluate the potential to move the shower head and then give you a cost estimate for the work.
Turn to Tile and Glass
The plastic shower shell that you have could actually be taking up a lot of space where you could expand the shower area. Talk with a tile professional if you don't think you can do the work about taking out the shell, and then using porcelain tile up the wall and as the flooring base for the shower. You can do a ledge so the water doesn't run out. After the shower is tiled, you can add glass doors for a modern look.
Don't Comprise Lighting
If you currently have an overhead light in the shower, you want to see if you can move it in one direction and you don't want to lose the light. If you don't have any lighting above the shower area, talk with an electrician about adding canned lighting to brighten up the space. The glass doors will also help bring in natural light.
If you don't want to invest more money into updating the entire bath, just some new hardware and lighting fixtures and be enough to make a big difference. You may even want to consider painting outdated cabinetry white, instead of replacing an entire set of cabinets. These changes will help you get a great new modern looking shower for your master bathroom space, and you can choose new a shower head that conserves water, improves pressure and looks great in your master bathroom space.
When was the last time you realized that you had a serious plumbing problem? About a month ago, I knew that I had to make some big changes, so I began talking with different plumbers about getting the job done. I told them that I wanted to replace the bathtub in the bathroom and the sink and faucet in the kitchen, and they took my requests in stride. Before I knew it, my entire home was updated and I felt great about the work. I wanted to start this blog to help other people to learn more about plumbing and repair.
