2018 is definitely the year of the bathroom remodel. As home improvements go, upgrading the bathroom delivers a lot of bang for the buck: it’s the one room in the house that gets used multiple times a day by every member of the family. Any improvements you make are going to be noticed and appreciated. As a plumber in Queens, we’re seeing two types of bathroom remodels: the master bathroom upgrade and the family bathroom upgrade.
Master Bathroom Upgrades: Comfort, Safety & Style
As homeowners get older, two things happen. Aesthetic preferences change – our tastes in colors, styles, and fixtures evolve over time – and there tends to be a greater emphasis on safety and comfort. If you’re planning on your current home in Queens being your forever home throughout your retirement, it’s essential to have a bathroom set up you can use independently. That can include having walk-in showers installed, installing comfort height toilets, and fixtures with universal design. The other thing that happens as we get older is that we learn how to appreciate the finer things. Many master bathroom upgrades focus on creating a spa-like experience in the home. It’s nice to have a room you completely enjoy to relax in.
Family Bathroom Upgrades: As the Kids Grow Up You Need a Different Space
Queens is very family friendly. Many of the homeowners we work with have at least one kid and many have more. When you’re raising a big family in a small space, your bathroom really needs to work well for everyone. This means one thing when your children are young and need to be talked into getting clean and another when they’re teenagers and you think they’ll never get out of the shower. Your Queens plumber can help you replace sinks and vanities with more age appropriate designs, install fixtures durable enough to stand up to the demands of active teens, and even include features that will help you keep the water bill under control.
