Remodeling a bathroom can be a daunting task for any homeowner. This is because even though you may be sure that you require some form of bathroom renovation, shopping for the perfect enclosure is a time consuming and difficult undertaking: this is especially so if you don’t know what to look out for. Below are some of key considerations you need to take note of so as to make your shopping experience not only easy and simple but also an enjoyable experience. These include but are not limited to the following:
You should decide whether you want a frameless or framed bathtub enclosure. This is usually more of an aesthetic choice. A frameless enclosure is more versatile and can therefore go with almost anything. It also gives the bathroom a more minimalistic and simple look. A Frame bathtub on the other hand gives the bathroom an ornate look and is more pronounced. It also gives the homeowner a chance to put in some style in the bathroom. It can be a profound accent on any tub if chosen and fitted correctly and professionally.
It is also important to decide on how private you want the bathtub enclosure to be, you can achieve this by either choosing clear or obscure glass. A clear glass enclosure is usually very minimalistic but there is lack of privacy up to a certain extent. Obscure glass is more private and also allows you more choices for design and patterns.
The size of your bathtub enclosure is usually to a high degree predetermined by the space you have at home. If you have a large space then you can opt for a larger bathtub if you have a small space then go for a bathtub enclosure that is suitable. If you are daring though, you can take this opportunity to completely overhaul your bathroom and change the shape, especially so if you have enough space to do so. Make the necessary inquiries from professionals and get some help on the same.
A new enclosure does afford you as the homeowner with an opportunity to upgrade your accessories and fixtures. Take into consideration how your new walls and doors will look with your existing fixtures, this is more pronounced if your enclosure will have a frame since you need to have fixtures which match them. Plan ahead and see how your choices will look and then decide accordingly on the way forward and which accessories or fixtures to purchase.
Finally you need to decide on whether you want swinging or sliding doors. This is usually dictated by the space which you have. If you have a large space then a swinging door will look just fine but if your space is limited then you are well advised to opt for sliding doors.
