Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
As the leaves begin to change color this fall, it’s time to remodel that old bathroom before the hubbub of the upcoming holiday season. Re-Bath®, America’s largest bathroom remodeler, has remodeled millions of bathrooms, and has some tips of how to make your project a success.
Consider your budget
Keep a realistic budget in mind when starting your remodeling project, and work around it. A great way to save money – sometimes up to 90% – is by resurfacing, rather than replacing, items like your bathtub, showers or walls. You won’t have to sacrifice looks or quality. Re-Bath® invented the bathtub liner in the 1970s. Today, the Re-Bath® DuraBath® SSP™ is a beautiful, easy-to-clean and durable option for refinishing your shower or bathtub. Its high-gloss finish will not dent, rust, peel, crack or fade, and is warm to the touch for a more comfortable bathing experience. Re-Bath® can even convert your bathtub to a shower at a fraction of the cost of replacing it.
Plan and design
Don’t begin your remodeling job without a plan and design in mind. Ask yourself what kind of bathroom setting you want. Classic, modern or elegant, design your bathroom to meet your style and family needs. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine what your finished bathroom will look like, but there is a free online tool that can help! Head over to http://www.rebath.com and use the interactive bathroom design tool to design your dream bathroom at a budget you can afford. Or, visit a showroom to see products in person. Re-Bath® has the country’s largest network of bathroom remodeling showrooms, so there is likely one near you. Call 1-800-BATHTUB to find a location today.
Be honest about your do-it-yourself skill level
Bathroom remodeling is not an easy job. If you’re not experienced with remodeling work, you could make costly and unsafe installation errors, and your family won’t be able to use your bathroom while it’s under construction for weeks. Forget the hassle; the professionals at Re-Bath® can finish some bathroom remodeling jobs in just one day. Call them for a free, in-home consultation to discuss your project.
Go green and lower utility bills
When you’re remodeling, consider lowering your utility bills and helping Mother Nature at the same time! A toilet uses more water than any other appliance in your home. The average person flushes 20 gallons of drinking water each day. Talk to your local Re-Bath® installer about stylish, eco-friendly toilets and faucets that use less water at a great price.
Add beauty and protection with wall coverings
A simple and relatively inexpensive way to add personality to your bathroom without tearing out walls is with wall surroundings. These come in a variety of colors and patterns to perfectly match the rest of your bathroom, and add protection against moisture. Re-Bath® has one of the largest selections of wall surrounds and wainscoting, all made with the same state-of-the-art DuraBath® SSP™ technology they use in their showers and bathtubs – not the acrylic materials used by other remodeling companies. Re-Bath’s wall surrounds are easy to clean and prevent mold and mildew, and, best of all, come with a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty against product defects.
Make your bathroom bigger – or smaller
If your bathroom is too small, use light or cream colors, add lighting to make it appear larger, and include a dimmer to set the mood. (Many people underestimate the importance of lighting in bathrooms; the right lighting can make a world of difference in the appearance and feel of the room.) A large mirror would also help make a cramped bathroom feel more spacey. Talk to an experienced Re-Bath® remodeler about these lighting and color options, or visit a showroom for ideas.
Some homes have the opposite problem: too much space! That could be a blessing in disguise, as it is a great opportunity to get creative. Add in bathroom vanities, cabinets, furniture or vanity sinks. Re-Bath® has a full line of vanities that would be a perfect fit for your home. Talk to your local Re-Bath® professionals for ideas.
Make your bathtub or shower a spa, and keep safety in mind
There are a world of bathtub and shower options out there that can improve your mood, health and state-of-mind. Had a long day at work? Come home to a soothing whirlpool or air bathtub to massage away stiff muscles, aches and pains. It's more affordable than you might think, and Re-Bath’s line can fit in the space of your existing bathtub.
If you need a bathtub that is safe and convenient, the Re-Bath® line of walk-in bathtubs is what you're looking for, especially as you get older. With amenities like an ADA compliant seat and multiple grab bars, Re-Bath’s walk-in bathtubs provide a safe, comfortable alternative to traditional bathtubs. The swing door allows for easy access for individuals while the available jetted system provides relief from arthritic pain and muscle aches.
These ideas should get you started in creating your dream bathroom this fall. Don’t go into a remodeling project alone! Talk to a professional who can help you from start to finish, design to installation, like your local Re-Bath® team.
