If the kitchen is the “heart” of the home, what does that make your bathroom? Well, it’s a very important room for your family – after all, who doesn’t want a spa-like bathroom? And your guest bathroom is also very important because, let’s face it, your guests will “judge” your home based on their “bathroom experience”. So if your bathroom is outdated and old-fashioned we can undertake Arlington, Virginia, bathroom remodeling for you and bring it into the 21st century.
There are just so many possibilities for remodeling a bathroom. Today, many people use the bathroom as a place in which to relax after a hard day at the office and an hour long commute back home, or perhaps after being out in the yard gardening all day on a Sunday. There is nothing nicer than relaxing in a nice hot bath, perhaps listening to some music, or even watching the television. Yes, why not? You can simply install an extra TV in there and do just that.
Maybe you only have one vanity, yet both husband and wife need to get ready for work at the same time so it would be easier to have two – both with mirrors above, one for putting on makeup and one for shaving.
Of course, many bathrooms are on the small side and there are ways in which to make them seem larger when undertaking an Arlington, Virginia, bathroom remodeling job. One way is with the use of colors. Using lighter colors will make the room appear bigger while at the same time oozing cleanliness and tidiness which are ideal attributes for a bathroom.
Mirrors and Your Bathroom Remodel
Mirrors, too, are another way to make the room appear bigger than it is. The larger they are, the better, as they will reflect more light. Some people even go as far as to have a whole wall covered with mirror! Of course, a mirror doesn’t have to be just plain glass: you can have a pattern etched into the side or corner of a mirror, still leaving enough space for makeup and shaving. You can also have a heated mirror so that it doesn’t get steamed up.
While we are on the subject of heating, what about a heated floor? These are not cheap to install, but if you are going to reposition things you will have to take up the floor anyway so it would be simple to add heating at the same time. This will warm up a tiled floor and also help to prevent mirrors from misting.
You could also install one of the latest automatic toilets. The last word in luxury, these do away with the need for toilet paper because they will wash you with warm water and then dry you with warm air. Most of them come with controls so that you can set the temperatures etc., to your own liking. An automatic toilet will make your Arlington Virginia bathroom the talk of the neighborhood.
Certainly, there are many things that you can do when undertaking Arlington, Virginia, bathroom remodeling. You may have ideas of your own, but talk to us about it as well because we may be able to make suggestions that you had not though about.
