What I Learned While Remodeling My Home

Me and my wife bought a fixer-upper a few years ago with every intention on converting it into our dream home. The problem was, we were not nearly as skilled in home construction and remodeling as we thought we were. After a few failed projects, we needed to really take a step back and reevaluate our plan. We knew there was no money in the budget to hire a contractor to do everything, so there were some skills we were going to have to learn on our own. After several months of actively seeking out the information we needed to get the job done, we were finally able to successfully remodel the kitchen in our new house. While the house is still a work in progress, we are successfully accomplishing new tasks every day. In this blog, I hope to bring together all of the information we learned along the way.

Live In An Icy Climate? Remodel Your Bathroom With Comfort As A Top Priority

Being a homeowner gives you a lot more control in what you do with the home compared to living in a rental, and you may be interested in utilizing such opportunities. If you live in an area with ice cold winters, you need a home with excellent insulation and a fully functional heating system to be comfortable. But, you may not want to spend a fortune on heating up the home, so you may keep the thermostat fairly low. This is fine, but you may not enjoy using the bathroom that much because it can get so cold. Remodeling this room through a place like Precision Builders with cold temperatures and comfort in mind will help you fix these bathroom problems.

Towel Warmer

The shower may be an enjoyable place because it can provide you with incredible warmth. But, as soon as you turn the water off, you will be exposed to the cold air that is in the bathroom. Reaching for a cold towel is not going to help alleviate the situation, so you need to find a solution. Devoting $500 to $2,000 of your budget to get a high-end towel warmer can yield incredible results. This will give you an easy transition for getting out of the shower, drying off, and putting on a warm and comfortable robe.

Heated Floors

Another reason that you may feel cold in the bathroom is because of cold floors. Carpet is warm, but it is the last type of flooring that you want to have in this room as it will get severely damaged. Tile and laminate flooring are popular choices, but they will be cold to the touch during the winter months. It is ideal to invest in heated floors that give you control of how your feet feel while using the bathroom. This will help you when you are going to the bathroom, stepping out of the shower, and getting ready.

Soaking Tub

Although it is nice when you have a bath and shower combination, there are several drawbacks. Some models do not give you much room for fully soaking in the tub, which can lead to uncomfortable baths. The best tub is one that allows you to fill the water high enough to completely submerge yourself. Being able to keep your shoulders under the hot water will maximize comfort when taking a bath.

Investing in these additions will have you loving the bathroom, even when the air is cold.
