Favorite bathroom upgrades
A glass shower door lends a luxurious look to any bathroom, but the reason for installing one might just be about more than looks. A curbless shower has no ledge or lip to step over to enter the shower, making it a great choice for any mobility impaired family member.
It’s not just for the elderly . . . remember the time you broke your leg snowboarding off a jump? A curbless shower with a built-in bench is just the thing for everyone. While you are having this done, be sure to have some sturdy grab bars installed. They look great and provide a big measure of security.
Radiant-heat flooring is a must for bathroom floors made of ceramic tile or stone. No shocking cold on exiting the shower ever again!
Most bathrooms have a mirrored medicine cabinet; this gets items off the countertop and who can’t use another mirror?
To keep that bathroom smelling great and reduce the moisture, be sure your contractor installs a properly sized exhaust fan. A quality fan will be quiet as well, with a timer so you don’t have to remember to come back and turn it off!
