One of the most cost effective home remodels is in the bathroom. There is a lot to consider when to take on this type of remodel. At Mihalkos, we can help you decide what would be the best option for your home.
Going “Green” in the Bathroom
Going “green” is a trend in bathroom remodels. Replacing a toilet with a multi flush system can do this. Sometimes green products cost more but in the long run could save you a lot of money. Refinishing bathtubs, sinks, and tiles in your bathroom has become a growing trend in the green remodeling world.
Updating or Rearranging Lighting
Instead of overhead lighting, consider moving the lights down to sconces. This will help with diminishing shadows. Energy efficient lights are replacing old fluorescent lights rapidly. LED (light emitting diode) lights are very popular in remodels because they last longer and are brighter.
One of the most important upgrades or additions is ventilation. If your bathroom doesn’t have a ventilation system, this is something you should consider adding first. Ventilation is important because bathrooms are full of moisture. Moisture can grow into mildew and mold, which can be a hazard to you and your family’s health. If left untreated, mildew and other bacterial growth may occur. Water can pose a serious threat to furnishings, walls, floors, and ceilings.
Update the Little Things
Keeping a coherent metal will do wonders to your bathroom. Keep the drawer pulls, handles, faucets, and showerheads in the same finish. You could also change the color to give your walls an easy facelift.
