When I noticed a few chips in the windows of my home, I didn't worry too much about how it would affect anything. Instead, I mainly focused on how it made my home look, and I secretly cursed the unsightly damage. However, those small chips began to grow until there were large cracks. After having that experience, I decided to dedicate myself to spreading the word about the problems associated damaged glass. Read this blog to find out how damaged glass could affect you and your family members.
The bathroom is one area that many homeowners target when they choose to renovate their homes. And this is for a good reason; potential upgrades to your bathroom can make a huge impact. Here are some of the best ideas for a home renovation geared towards the bathroom.
Upgrading Your Faucet
The first thing to look at is your faucet. Many manufacturers have created beautiful faucets and sinks that create an artful centerpiece to the entire bathroom.
Using Low Flow Toilets
Low flow toilets are pretty standard in public restrooms these days, but they are also beginning to make their way to homes. There are many options. Some toilets simply reduce the amount of water used with each flush. Other ones allow you to deliver a big or small flush, depending on how much waste needs to be flushed. And some more complex sustainable systems even collect rainwater for use in flushing toilets.
Adding Subway Tiles
In general, taking a look at your bathroom's finishes is a good idea while you're renovating. It may be subway tiles, or it might be simply upgrading the paint and finishes so that they match better with your other upgrades.
Getting a Glass Shower Enclosure
A glass shower enclosure is important for many reasons. For one, it looks great. A shower glass installation is much more elegant than an old paisley shower curtain that's sitting there collecting mold. Another reason is that it helps spread natural light. If your glass shower doors allow light to get through to the whole space, you won't need to use as much electric lighting during the day, saving energy.
Upgrading Your Shower Head
One of the best things that you can do for your own comfort is upgrade your shower head. Newer shower heads have so much variety in terms of the water pressure and even the way that water is expelled from the shower head. Do you prefer a more forceful shower head that is almost like a massage? There's a setting for that. But the best shower heads are customizable, so that every person in your family can choose the water pressure and pattern that they prefer.
In short, there are plenty of things to look into for modernizing and renovating a bathroom to make it both more comfortable and more elegant. At the same time, you may be able to make improvements that save water and electricity.
