If you bought a new home and the bathroom is outdated, you can do many things to bring this room into the future. Two things you can do include installing a new shower with glass shower doors and replacing the vanity. Below is more information about these renovations to help you get started.
Install New Shower with Glass Shower Doors
Remove the bathtub if it is old and rundown, and instead install a shower with glass shower doors. If you want to keep a bathtub, either replace it or have it refinished while installing your new shower.
Glass shower doors will improve the bathroom's aesthetics. Frameless shower doors are an easy to clean option. You will not have to worry about soap scum or anything else building up around the frame, which can be difficult to clean.
Having only a shower in a bathroom also works great if you have no children and/or if the bathroom is small. You can put the shower in a corner and make it any size you wish.
Shower glass is tempered and thick, which means it will not break easily. This ensures the glass shower doors are safe for you and your family. You can choose clear glass or choose a glass that is etched to give it a design. There is also frosted glass if you want some privacy while taking a shower.
Install a New Vanity
Remove the current bathroom vanity and install a new one. You can choose to install a vanity that is surrounded by a cabinet which will give you space to store things and save room.
You can also choose a pedestal vanity which instead, of a cabinet, sits on legs. This would work well if you already have cabinets installed in the walls which store things that you use in the bathroom. This is also known as a freestanding sink.
Wall mounted sinks are another choice. This type of sink also has no cabinet and is mounted to the wall instead of using legs. The plumbing is installed behind the wall, so it is not seen.
If you choose a cabinet vanity and have the room, consider a double sink. This not only gives you an extra sink but also more counter space. This would work well if you have a large family.
Hire a building contractor to make these changes for you. This professional can also give you other tips.
