WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Bathroom renovation projects can be as simple as swapping sinks or as complicated as a complete renovation. Experts at Best Plumbing Tile & Stone say the first step in the process is always the same though: evaluate the space and project you will be working on beforehand and move forward from there.
Best Plumbing Tile & Stone, which has locations in Scarsdale, Somers, Yorktown and Stamford in New York and Stamford in Connecticut, provided these tips for homeowners considering their next project:
Tip No. 1: When the current layout doesn’t work well in the existing space, taking the room down to the studs can help improve the bathroom design and flow. This step also makes it possible for any outdated pipes to be replaced or fixtures to be relocated.
Tip No. 2: Take a fresh look at the way the bathroom is currently arranged and try to create a more efficient flow. In renovation, simply moving a tub from the side of the room to the back wall can make a significant improvement, as pictured above.
Tip No. 3: Decide on the style and the features that you prefer and work best with your vision. For example, in the renovation pictured above, the new tub that was installed (Kohler's Bancroft) fits the look and feel of the re-imagined bathroom. The addition of Kohler’s VibrAcoustic technology can help take your oasis vision even further by creating a personalized soothing spa experience. Not only can you connect your smartphone via Bluetooth to surround yourself with your favorite music or catch up on news or podcasts, but built-in hidden speakers emit sound waves that envelop and gently massage the body. For the ultimate in spa-like relaxation, the tub also includes Bask, Kohler’s heated backrest that adds warmth to the back and neck.
For space constraints, a Kohler bidet seat is a great option. It has all the functionality of a bidet, but it's right in the toilet seat.
Tip No. 4: Choose your finishing touches for a customized final flourish. Kohler’s Damask vanity makes customizing a breeze with so many clever options, including electrical outlets, pullout shelves, makeup drawer, appliance tray, stackable storage and drawer dividers. In this renovation, the vanity is topped with the Kohler Ceramic/Impressions countertop .
Tip No. 5: Finally, remember every detail counts when transforming your bathroom. The timeless and classic Artifacts line allows you to choose a spout and handles separately for the sink, further customizing your style.
