Make the Bathroom Your Top Remodeling Priority
April 18, 2014
All over the world, the toilet is a valuable appliance. Modern Toilet is a bathroom-themed restaurant chain based in Taiwan; diners sit on non-working toilets, and food and drinks are served in miniature toilets, bathtubs and urinals. In America, water saving toilets play a key role in the bathroom remodeling processing. If you want to give your bathroom a new look, consider water saving toilets and walk-in bathtubs.
Walk-in bathtubs can allow users who have previously been unable to bathe on their own, without assistance, to do so comfortably and safely. Most walk-in bathtubs have a chair-height seat but some do not have any seat. Walk in tubs take up a similar amount of space in a bathroom as a traditional bathtub. This allows for quicker installation and simpler alignment of water drains. A walk-in bathtub is not your only option during the remodel process. A corner bathtub has a different shape than, and is typically deeper than, a conventional bathtub.
Although pressure assisted toilets may seem more expensive than gravity toilets, they do a better job of removing waste from the bowl with less water. High efficiency toilets combine minimum water usage with maximum flushing power. High efficiency toilets should be able to flush using 20% less water than is mandated by law and should be flushed only once. They should require minimal cleaning with environmentally unfriendly detergents. Modern low flush toilets designs allow for the use of much less water per flush. Water saving toilets require the sewage treatment system be modified for more concentrated waste.
You can create your own link with a creative sink. A sink comes in several different styles including self-rimming, bottom-mount or a vessel. Sinks are made with many different materials including stainless steel, ceramic and plastic. Stainless steel is commonly used in kitchens and commercial applications because it represents a good trade off between cost and durability. Plastic sinks come in several forms including injection-molded thermoplastics, high-end acrylic drop-in and undermount. Handmade glass sinks are becoming more popular in high-end homes.
There are several ways to go about your bathroom remodel, including adding a water saving toilet or walk-in bathtub. The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your home during the sale process, so make sure to keep it up to date. Your bathroom is the best place to start in the home remodel process.
