Bathroom Remodeling - Artisan Remodeling & Design - Fort Collins

Sometimes it seems that you lose so many of the finer things in life when you lose your mobility. Whether it’s the difficulty in making all the arrangements to go on that dream vacation or the embarrassment that comes with wheeling yourself into a luxury spa and having to get assistance maneuvering yourself from chair to table to pool for all the treatments, at some point you begin to let go of those things that you used to enjoy, and just say “it’s not worth it anymore.”

It doesn’t have to be that way. For example, you can still enjoy spa-level relaxation in the comfort and safety of your own home, by engaging bathroom remodeling contractors in Fort Collins to make some changes to your existing bathroom.

A professional renovation team can make sure that the bathroom is wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair or walker, and install grab bars in appropriate places to help you maneuver around the room. But most importantly, they can install one of the great new walk-in tubs now available on the market. Hydrotherapy is one of the best ways to help relax tense muscles, and gently flex and massage limbs that can move more freely with the buoyancy of water. Available water and air jets add to the soothing atmosphere and hand-held shower extensions help you get water everywhere you want it.

You can also choose between a traditional, full-sized bather tub and a taller tub designed for use while seated. If you find that lying down in a tub as you once did, surrounded by candles and immersed in gently scented bubbles, is now a frightening thought because you might not be able to get up again, the taller tubs will still allow you to immerse yourself in bubbles while you remain securely seated on the built-in bench. Grab bars can be installed to make it easier for you to stand and walk out of your walk-in luxury spa, and there’s still plenty of room on the sides of the tub to safely place a votive candle or two, along with your favorite mp3 player to provide the soothing music you are accustomed to.

So don’t give up on pampering yourself just because you’re losing your mobility. For the cost of a few months’ treatments at the spa you used to patronize, you can bring that luxury, convenience, and enjoyment into your own bathroom.

Getting Started

· Begin your project by taking measurements and carefully developing a plan.
· Look at photos of other bathroom remodeling projects to acquire new ideas.
· List the changes you want to make in the order of their importance.
· Note every step needed to complete each phase of the bathroom remodeling project.
· Make a list of needed materials and tools along with their cost.
· If your budget is limited, decide which alterations you can postpone for a while.
· Inquire about the need of obtaining permits for your project.

Money-saving Improvements

Consider making some environmentally friendly improvements in your remodeled bathroom. By using less water and energy, you will save money on utility bills every month.

· Water-saving toilets use less water every time you flush, and toilets with dual flush fixtures use half as much water when flushing only liquids.
· Showerheads with water-saving features will let you take leisurely showers while using less water.
· Skylights make it unnecessary to turn lights on every time you enter the room.

Aesthetic Improvements

· Small rooms appear bigger if they have large mirrors. You may want to use mirrors on an entire wall to make the bathroom seem twice as spacious. However, remember that it takes more time and effort to clean mirrors than it takes to clean ordinary walls.
· Instead of installing new cabinets, try giving your existing cabinets new surfaces to improve their appearance.
