Bathrooms don’t have to be basic. A lot of times, people don’t know what’s involved in renovating the bathroom. Since plumbing is obviously involved, they get scared. How much does a bathroom upgrade cost? How long does a bathroom renovation take? How do I get rid of an old toilet, shower and sink in Manhattan? Questions like this run through their mind – and since they don’t know the answers, they put off upgrading the bathroom.
Don’t settle for a blah bathroom. You don’t wear the same style of clothing day after day after day, year after year after year! Your home should evolve and grow as you do, reflecting your tastes and preferences. For example, one thing we’ve seen as Manhattan plumbers is families swapping out the shower stall for a walk-in tub. Walk-in tubs generally have a slightly larger footprint than shower units, but they deliver so much in terms of accessibility, safety, and comfort for anyone with mobility or balance concerns that the trade off is more than worth it.
People want to save water. Water conservation is important for our planet, and using less water means reduced household expenses as well. The bathroom is the main place in the home where you can save water. Having a new toilet installed makes a real difference. There are also water saving faucets and higher end shower controls often have an ECO mode.
The use of natural materials in the bathroom continues to be a top design trend. This has been popular in Manhattan for a while already, albeit often with an upscale twist or high-tech touches. Smart showers and bamboo benches can turn even the smallest bathrooms into a spa like space: imagine how nice it is to have a restful retreat right in your own home at the end of a long, tough day!
