Designing your new Virginia bathroom can seem to be a monumental task, but with the right planning, the process can be hassle free. Fore thought can save you a ton in time and money. The shower is often a focal point of the bathroom, so it should definitely have a distinct look. There are little details that go into choosing just the right tone that can really set off the wall colors or flooring.
Begin with the Finish
Hardware is the element that brings every element together in the bathroom. When you select your new shower enclosure, keep the finished look of the room in mind. The faucets and other fixtures should compliment the color of the shower doors, hinges and other hardware. The choice of finish should really set the tone of the colors you use everywhere else in the room.
Silver is a finish that blends in seamlessly with many of the older chrome fixtures, although modern designers are trending more towards brushed nickel and oil-rubbed bronze.
Looking Through the Glass Door
The metal look may be going the way of the 8-track, but new doors are a little more pricey because of it. In order to remain stable, the glass much is much thicker. The choices available in modern patterns are as numerous as the fish in the sea. If you prefer to have privacy without a bunch of geometric lines, obscured glass is the way to go. Of course, classic clear glass will let anyone who wanders into your bathroom see what great taste in fixtures you have.
Off with that Head!
The newest showerheads are not only stylish and elegant, but water efficient and able to deliver strong water pressure. Many people find the removable hand held sprayers very convenient. The vertical shower spa is also becoming very popular, and customers are raving about how luxurious they feel.
For the ultimate in luxurious showers, you need a combination system that has an overhead shower, vertical sprayers on the walls, and a hand held sprayer. There is a whole new level of clean feeling skin for anyone who has a water delivery system like that installed.
Don’t Forget to Accessorize
Once the main hardware finish has been chosen and all of the other big decisions have been made, it is time to settle on your choices for things like towel bars and shower door handles. Most manufacturers of water delivery systems for showers (i.e. showerheads) provide what they call “suites” of products that are supposed to match the showerhead for a very cohesive look.
A Virginia bathroom remodeling project is not complete without a new shower. A licensed contractor must be hired to do work as extensive as removing the older shower enclosure and creating the new one. Like any other home improvement, the outcome is what really matters, and the small amount of discomfort is worth it.
