Lake Norman Bathroom Remodeling

We normally live in houses for years and like the way things are. We would often have a particular arrangement of furniture, or keep the walls painted the same color. Sometimes though, change is good. Renovating breathes new life into a house, even if it is just one room that was given a makeover. One of the more difficult to renovate rooms is the bathroom.

When dealing with renovations for bathrooms, there are many more things to consider compared to renovating other rooms, say bedrooms and the like. Bathrooms have to have the property of being able to keep water in and also resist the effects of water on construction materials. Most bathrooms are tiled with porcelain or marble, which rest on a bed of concrete within which pipes are installed. This means that it is heavier than rooms with wooden floors, so there are limits to what you can do to it if it is on an upper floor. If you need to break open the concrete to change pipes, make sure to figure sand, gravel, and cement into your budget.

Water proofing means using tiles, as previously mentioned. Marble tiles are of course more expensive, but they have an incomparable style that is all their own. Whether you choose marble of the more conventional ceramic tiles, make sure to budget for more than you actually need, just in case some break during reconstruction. If you will need 40 tiles, buy 45 or something like that.

Using tiles means using tile grout. Grout is what sticks tiles to the walls and floor, as well as filling up the gaps between tiles. Not all grout is made equal, so it pays to get the good stuff. Upon setting, grout has a rough surface which may absorb water. Some waterproofing solutions may also be needed to seal the grout lines. Doing so will prevent the formation of unsightly mildew, which can also be improved by the use of solutions with pre-mixed fungicide.

Your fixtures will need some serious consideration. There are so many different styles of taps, dials, and showerheads that choosing one can be pretty hard. Just remember that these can be replaced more easily later on since they’re outside the concrete. Maximize quality for pipes and tiling, and if you absolutely have to skimp somewhere, do it on fixtures. After all, it is not very useful to have a fancy tap with no running water due to a broken pipe, right?

You could have a shower area separated by a simple shower curtain or maybe something fancier, like a glass enclosure. Either way, you will need to buy materials like stainless steel, sturdy glass, waterproofed fabrics or plastic for these applications. If you have a tub that you want to replace, that’s one more on the budget. Sinks may also need to be replaced. If you have a combination toilet and bath, you may also want to get one of those water-saving toilets.

In the end, budgeting for bathroom renovation comes down to how much you want to change. The short list items are of course, tiles, grout, fixtures, and pipes. Visit Los Angeles Community Guide blog [] and Los Angeles Area Property for more ideas about homes.
