Long Lasting Luxury in Your Bathroom
Posted on Monday, October 13, 2014

Luxury is a look, certainly, but it is also a commitment to quality and longevity. This is why bathroom fixtures that produce a luxurious look are often on the higher-end of the price scale. However, turning away from luxury items because they seem expensive misses the larger point: these items are made of better materials and expertly crafted to last, often years longer than discount or knock-off alternatives.

If you are going for a luxurious feel in your bathroom but a complete redesign seems too expensive, there are a number of small steps you can take. Consider replacing just one or two fixtures at a time or complementing existing fixtures with more elegant and well-crafted accessories. These small changes can make a large aesthetic difference while laying the foundation for your eventual upgrade to spa-like luxury.

As you are ready, begin to add fixtures that are most attractive to you. This can include upgrades to the shower such as steam features, shower-bars and waterfall heads, along with tub improvements including whirlpool, light, and chromotherapy features. And, don’t forget the details. Vanities, linen cabinets, even upholstered furniture can all serve to create a luxurious experience and complete the look and feel you are trying to achieve.

Taking time to plan out your bathroom and making small changes over a period of time will allow you to create a space that is built to provide an inviting escape for years to come.

Deep Bathroom Cleaning without Harsh Chemicals
Posted on Thursday, October 9, 2014

Bathroom cleaning products can be harsh both on your skin and the environment. The corrosive ingredients in many bathroom cleaners can actually work to destroy tile, grout, and countertops. Green cleaning products offer a fantastic alternative to heavy-chemicals, but those are often better for maintenance and, unless you clean every few days, may not completely remove things such as mold and hard-water stains.

If you have become frustrated with the option of having a bathroom that only looks semi-clean or using a harsh and dangerous chemical cleaner, it may be time to consider high pressure water vapor. With this option, you can safely and effectively restore every surface area of your bathroom to its brightest and most beautiful no matter how much buildup is in place.

Steam Cleaners

There are several steam cleaners available online and in stores that work very well in bathrooms. Be sure to select a unit based on its cleaning capacity and not on price alone. Remember, once purchased, your steam cleaner can replace a majority of your cleaning products for a lifetime, making this one-time purchase well worth it.

A good steam cleaner will not only remove stains, dirt, and visible imperfections, it will also kill bacteria and viruses, destroy allergens, kill fleas, mites and other tiny insects and their eggs, and produce a completely sterile environment. This option in ideal for people with asthma, families with small children, and anyone who desires a clean environment without the personal and environmental hazards and irritations of chemicals.

Adding Audio to Your Bathroom
Posted on Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Music is an important part of our lives – and from MP3 players to tablets to in-home stereos, we love to have it with us wherever we go. Now, thanks to technological innovations, you can even have music in your bathroom, allowing you to enhance your mood or create a specific feel at any time of the day.

Built-In Options

There are several modern fixtures infused with audio features. Showerheads with wireless speakers, vanities with built-in radios and AUX inputs, and similar upgrades allow you to add audio to your bathroom in next to no time at all. 

For more advanced audio-technology, consider a hydrotherapy tub. These tubs combine pre-programed sounds with water features to create a luxurious and relaxing get-away. Of course, you can always connect your own music via wireless technology to further personalize your hydrotherapy experience.

Wireless Solutions

If you are not equipped to undergo a remodel or if you’re simply looking for a quick and easy audio solution, consider wireless speakers. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be mounted or discretely placed throughout the bathroom, giving you the power to stream music from your phone, tablet, or computer. Be sure to look for varieties made for the bathroom as some speakers can become damaged by moisture.

Adding audio to your bathroom is a wonderful way to enhance your everyday experience. What’s more, most of these option take very little time to install – often enabling you to go from concept to completion in just a few hours.

Transitional design represents the marriage of modern and traditional and, like all marriages, this can result in an even blending or one that leans slightly more to one side. While traditional design favors intricate details, ornate hardware, and a more luxurious aesthetic, modern design is sleek, minimalist, and hip. Transitional vanities take elements of each of these styles to produce something classical yet cool, impressive yet simple, ornate yet efficient, and entirely individualized for each space.

The beauty of transitional design is that it doesn’t limit a theme to one specific style. Choosing a transitional vanity opens possibilities that would be eliminated by sticking with a traditional or modern theme, allowing for complete personalization of your bathroom. These vanities can be more modern or more traditional depending on your specific desires, and make the ideal starting point for a bathroom redesign that incorporates your varied and unique sense of style.

Transitional vanities continue to evolve as styles change, but maintain their ability to fit seamlessly into nearly any existing theme. There are a number of transitional designs – some leaning to one side, others to another – giving you the selection you need to choose the vanity best suited to complement and enhance your space.

Many parts of bathroom renovation can be completed with little to no previous experience. Even things that seem complex like tile work, grouting, and fixture installation can often be completed on your own, but some portions of a renovation project should not be done without the assistance of a trained and licensed professional.

If you are inexperienced, you may want to consult a professional before working with:

  •        Plumbing
  •         Electricity
  •        Heat or fan installation
  •       Instant water heaters
  •        The removal of walls
  •       Replacement or installation of windows
  •       Working with fragile materials such as granite

These aspects of restoration can be, by turns, dangerous, disastrous, and fragile. Consequences resulting from incorrect installation can be far reaching and financially devastating. Working with a professional can save you time and money, help ensure your project is done right the first time, and ultimately protect your investment in your home.

It is important to remember that seeking professional assistance is not a betrayal of DIY sensibilities. It is an intelligent decision based on recognizing your own limitations and acknowledging that, in the end, a safe and well-constructed space is what matters most.
