Transforming Your Small Bathroom into a Master Bathroom


July 27, 2016

If you're living in a crowded home, chances are you've thought about ways to get more space. Rideline Remodeling in can help you design your bathroom remodel in Denver. After all, wouldn’t it be nice to have a master bathroom to replace the small one that you have to be using with all the other members of your family? If the answer is yes, then you must have already realized the difference it will make to the entire family to have your own personal space. You deserve it. A master suite is what will make you feel important and the head of your household.

Things to Consider
If you have decided to make the transformation, then you have to plan how you will want the end result. You could consider:

  • Adding two sinks
  • Steam shower
  • Whirlpool Jacuzzi
  • Bidet
  • New toilet
  • Tub

Or you could add a few features and revisit the idea of adding extra elements later. In any event, you must plan which item is the most important for your initial comfort.

Making Plans
Start your plans with a customized floor plan. You can hire an expert to assess the space and the needs of your family. Here are several things that you could discuss with the expert:

  • Do you want to install a bath or shower stall?
  • How contemporary should the bathroom be?
  • Is an open shower feasible?
  • What design will accommodate the space?

Customized Features
A master bathroom now has customizable features such as:

  • Overhead or wall mounted showerheads
  • Hand-held showerheads
  • Rain bars
  • Steam showers
  • Body sprays
  • Shower tiles

The Bathtub
If you opt for a bathtub instead of a shower, you could consider a whirlpool bathtub. If you want to play the part of a princess or prince, then you may want to take scheduled baths that are not like the ordinary. You can treat yourself like royalty with a whirlpool tub, probably your first experience. You will love to pamper yourself with a relaxing bath after a tired day at work. If you are going to make this choice, then consider an extra large bathtub to fit more than one person for that romantic evening.

Open Shower
If you cannot afford the whirlpool tub, then consider an open shower. While you make not be able to take hot baths, a warm shower is just as good after a long day at work. Choose several different showerheads so that you can massage your tired muscles on varying levels. Speak to an expert about getting an open shower that has more functionality.

Going Contemporary

A utilitarian bathroom is obviously the better choice, if you are looking for functionality as well. Contemporary toilets are now sold with automatic apparatus such as a button that puts the toilet seat down when finished using it. That way, there won’t be any quarrels about who left the toilet seat opened. Some toilet seats are even heated and a bidet, built in to keep the toilet clean.

Sinks
Decide on whether you want two sinks or one. If you can afford to, then two sinks gives you more flexibility, especially when you and your partner have the same morning schedules. However, one sink will do, if you are working with a tight budget.

Due to the personal nature of a bathroom, it will take careful thought on deciding how you want your master bathroom to be constructed. Get the help of an expert because two heads are better than one. For your Denver bathroom remodeling project, contact the specialists at Ridgeline Remodeling Inc.
