|Whether you’re installing a new bathroom or remodeling the old one, the most difficult and complex part of the job is the shower. There are several factors to consider. First, bathrooms come in a seemingly unlimited number of styles, such as single and double threshold, neo angle, neo round, and neo square, and come in a variety of sizes including 32x32, 36x36, 42x34, 48x46, 60x30, 60x36, and 60X42. Then there’s function; a family with young children may need a bathtub with shower enclosure, while an elderly couple may require a walk-in shower with a seat and a safety bar. Finally, you must take into account that whatever you decide on could end up changing the flow and feel of the entire bathroom. Choosing the right shower for your home is not only important, it is essential.
Bathroom products are our specialty. Our Brooklyn showroom was designed as an open space where customers can walk through at their leisure and browse our wide selection. We can also use our expertise to help make all of these choices a little easier. For the shower floor we recommend either a shower pan or mosaic tile. Should you prefer a shower pan, we recommend using acrylic material on account that it is durable, lightweight, mold resistant and easy to repair.
However, don’t be too quick to rule out tiles altogether. For hundreds of years people have used tiles to create stunning mosaics or to add a touch of grandeur to their homes. It can be argued that when you are laying tiles, you are creating art. Think of your bathroom walls as a blank canvas with endless possibilities. Faux wood porcelain tile is very popular right now, and sizes include 6x24, 6x36, 6x40, 4x40, and 8x40, with a price range of $1.50 to $8 per square foot. It is one of the many styles on display at our showroom, where you can get a good idea of your options.
Space is another concern when designing a bathroom. You have a relatively small area to work with, so you want to make the most of it. A bathroom vanity is a great way to add extra storage space for towels and toiletries. They come in both traditional and modern style, and can be hung on the wall, have legs, or a toe kick. Sizes include 24, 30, 32, 36, 48, 60, 72, and 84. Our showroom has all of these and more on display in a wide range of styles, colors and sizes from many different manufacturers.
So now your bathroom is finished. The fixtures are perfect, and they compliment each other nicely. However, it can feel incomplete without vignettes; they are what make the bathroom truly feel like a part of the home by adding a personal element, be it flowers, antique perfume bottles, or scented soaps, that also fit the color scheme and pattern. Our showroom has full bathroom models with contemporary vignettes that can help you add that perfect finishing touch.
