Budget Friendly Bathroom Updates

13050800783_f08a608d10_z

You may think giving your bathroom an upgrade is a costly project. To some extent, it could be – but there are plenty of affordable ways you could give your bathroom a makeover regardless if you rent or own your home.

Take a look at the below budget friendly updates you can complete in a day’s time, no demo required:

  • Repaint surfaces – You’d be surprised at what a fresh coat of paint can do! Give your bathroom an easy refresh by changing up the wall color or painting over your cabinet doors. All you have to do here is remove drawers, doors, and hardware and sand down any loose or peeling paint before getting started. Follow with priming, painting, and reassembling – as detailed here »
  • Switch out hardware – Basic hardware, like toilet paper holders or towel bars, can be the first to really show age. If yours are looking a bit drab, change out any bars, hooks, knobs, etc. to something different to give your space a new feel (for minimal cost). You may want to purchase new hardware from the same company and collection to maintain a unified look.
  • Redo your floors – Vinyl flooring is not only extremely durable it’s also water resistant and requires little maintenance. And with installation as simple as peel and stick – why not give it a try! Most vinyl flooring has an adhesive that can easily go on top of your current floors – no demo required.
  • Accessorize – Now that you’ve changed up some colors, look for some accessories to match. New floor rugs, shower curtains, towels, or window treatments can easily make your space feel different.
  • Add storage – Increase your bathroom’s functionality by adding some additional shelving units above your toilet or under your sink. This is a good way to help de-clutter any counter space that could be an eyesore.

If these small updates just won’t cut it, contact the experts here at Patterson Plumbing & Heating. Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, will work with you to ensure your bathroom meets all of your remodeling needs.

Make Your Bathroom a Safer Place

bathroom-image-5

Though we may try and fight it, aging is inevitable – and if you plan on staying in your home for the long run, it’s important to pre-plan for your future comfort. Easily make your bathroom a safer place for years to come with the below updates:

Create the right lighting – Glare is a common issue in the bathroom and sconces on each side of the mirror are easier on the eyes than overhead lighting. Consider increasing the amount of natural light in the bathroom by installing a skylight or updating a window. And finally, be sure your shower area is well lit!

Install grab bars – We know what you’re thinking – those heavy-looking bars that are found in commercial bathrooms should go in the home? Not quite. Grab bars now include caddy shelves, towel rods, and toilet paper holders that will do double duty without being an eye sore. Choose fixtures to go along with the bathroom’s aesthetic and install properly so they can support weight if used. Place them at the entrance to the shower or tub, inside the shower, and near the toilet.

Install nonslip floors – Slick tile isn’t safe for anyone. Since the floor is bound to get wet, look for slip-resistant tile or vinyl. The more textured the tile, the less slippery it is. Additionally, ceramic tiles have adopted a slip-resistance number system – so choose tiles with a higher number for better slip resistance.

Consider your tub and shower options – Getting in and out of the bathtub can be difficult for people with mobility issues. Walk-tubs including a door to enter and exit from may be a good choice for your family otherwise a curbless shower stall can be easily accessible. Someone using a walker can easily enter and exit the shower, and parents can conveniently bath their young children or pet. Install a handheld shower head with at least a 6 foot long hose for reach and a fold up seat should it be needed.

Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, will work with you to ensure your bathroom meets all of your remodeling needs.

Design Ideas for Your Bathroom Makeover

From unique tubs to brightly colored walls, bathroom design has certainly evolved throughout the years. If you’re thinking of giving your master bath a makeover, take a look at some of these refreshing design ideas:
Wooden elegant bathroom
Organic Accents – With all the ceramic and porcelain surfaces found around the bathroom, adding some natural textures can make the space a bit more personal. Consider a woven basket, wooden decor, or fringed towels.

Black & White Combo – The black and white combo has been gaining popularity. For a chic look, choose white subway tile floors and charcoal gray paint on the walls. Bump this up a notch with patterned hand towels.

Quote Wall – With stencils or letter decals, put some of your favorite quotes on display – right on your wall! If selecting decals, stick with the vinyl type as they hold up better in humidity,

Statement Tile – Make a big impact with a graphic tile back splash. Choose from store options or even choose to create a hand-painted design. Or instead of tiny floor tiles, consider using shapely tiles with a bit more heft.

Unique Mirror – Sometimes, the only thing you need to do to give your bathroom a fresh look is updating the mirror. Swap out your medicine cabinet for an over-sized statement mirror.

Deciding on how to update your bathroom can be a difficult task, especially if you’re torn between what designs you’re looking for. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath, and let us guide you towards your dream en suite!

5 Things You Should Do Before Remodeling a Bathroom

Has your bathroom seen better days? Outdated tile floors, worn out bathtubs, and peeling wall paint are just some of the problems that arise in aging bathrooms. If you foresee a remodeling project in your not-so-distant future, make sure to do these five things before putting a sledgehammer through your drywall.

  • Decide what needs renovation – Not all bathroom remodels are created equal. Some remodeling projects could only require a new paint-job and shower head, while others need to be gutted and built from the ground up. Deciding which fixtures need upgrading is the first step to a successful remodel.
  • Set a budget – Setting a budget is an important step in any home improvement project. After determining exactly how much work needs to be done, you can begin to develop a realistic budget.
  • Measure, remeasure, and measure again – Few things can set a bathroom renovation back quicker than improper measurements. Measure how big your bathroom is, as well as your current tub, toilet, and sink. When shopping for new fixtures, always account for their physical dimensions and consider if they will fit comfortably in your bathroom.
  • Draft your new bathroom – This is where your dream begins to come to life. Whether by hand or using a computer program, lay out the floorplan for your new bathroom. This will give you a feel for the look and flow of your new bathroom, and if you don’t like something, it’s easier to change it now than it will be in the future.
  • Contact a professional – Even if you plan on renovating the bathroom yourself, it is always a good idea to consult a professional plumber or bathroom remodeling specialist before starting a project. They can help ensure that the renovation is completed correctly, safely, and efficiently, plus they could warn you of potential problems you could run in to with your plumbing system.

Our certified professionals will be there for you through every step of the process; from idea conception to the finished project. Our bathroom remodeling division, ReBath of Pueblo, is a one-stop shop for all of your remodeling needs.

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Trends for 2015

iStock_000043738514_Large

According to an Angie’s List survey – homeowners plan to go big in 2015, especially where their bathrooms and kitchens are concerned. Here are some of the top trends to keep an eye on this year:

  • Walk-in Showers – Homeowners are looking to ditch the bathtub and instead install walk-in showers with large rain head faucets and handheld sprayers.
  • Free Standing Tubs – For those still wanting a place to relax while bathing, freestanding bathtubs such as the contemporary basin style or antique clawfoot tubs are front of mind.
  • Gray is the New Beige – Walls, cabinets, and tile are all going gray scale. From kitchens to bathrooms, we’ve seen this trend come into play in the last few months and expect it to continue.
  • Stainless is Still King – For kitchen appliances, stainless steel still holds the crown. Only reason consumers may opt out of stainless is if they want custom made fronts that match the kitchen cabinets.
  • More Closet Space – Consumers are shopping more and increasing the size of their wardrobe. Most look to remodel their master ensuite to hold a large walk-in closet.

If you’re looking to renovate your bathroom or kitchen this new year, contact the experts at Patterson Plumbing & Heating. Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, and kitchen remodeling division, 5 Day Kitchens, will work with you to ensure your new remodel meets all of your family’s needs.

Keeping Plumbing Projects on Schedule

When it comes to your home’s functionality and water usage – plumbing should be at the top of your list of priorities. The next time you look to begin a plumbing project, make sure it is completed on time, and on budget.

Unsure about how to get this done? Simply create a schedule to stick to, lay out all necessary costs, materials, and your estimated timeline. Then give your favorite Pueblo area plumbers a call, here at Patterson Plumbing & Heating to discuss your options:

Budget: Depending on the project you are undertaking, the cost can range significantly. Gauge an appropriate budget for prices you are willing to pay for materials, labor, whatever else may come up.

Materials: Some materials may require additional maintenance or tools – thus increasing your budget. We’ll make our recommendations and prepare pricing by the job, not by the hour, so there are no surprises.

Timeline: To make sure your project is on schedule, is to plan a timeline in advance. This way you and your plumber know the expectations for completion way before the project begins.

Keep seasons in mind: While we are available in all seasons for same day service, holiday seasons tend to be busy. Consider the excess use of plumbing systems in your home when family comes to town. Planning a timeline in advance is especially good for these reasons.

Keeping track of these important plumbing project factors will help ensure everything is completed on time and within your budget. The unexpected always has the chance of occurring so leaving some cushion room in your plan can be beneficial as well.

How to Prioritize Your Remodeling Projects

Bathroom Remodeling, Replacement & Installation For Pueblo, Colorado Area Homes

You know your home is a big investment, and the best way to care for it is by keeping up with necessary repairs. Once you are sure all the parts of the home that are vital to keeping it operating properly (roof, doors, pipes, etc) are in tip-top shape, then you can begin your wish list.

This wish list should prioritize what you’d like added to your home. Is there a baby on the way and you need extra room? Or on the other hand, have your children flown the coop? Are you getting your house ready for sale? This wish list should reflect the answers to these questions so your remodel really fits your family’s needs.

Once this is done, get estimates for everything and set yourself a budget to be sure all costs are accounted for. From there, you can decide which items on your wish list you can begin work on. Kitchen and bathroom renovations typically get you the most bang for your buck.

And that’s where we come in. Our bathroom and kitchen division along with our primary Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Water Treatment services make us your one stop shop in home remodeling. Give us a call and see how our experts can help you achieve your ideal home. With our “Up Front Pricing,” you can be confident that the job will be done right, at a price you can afford, every time.

Common Problems During a Bathroom Remodel

Remodeling your bathroom adds greater usability and style to your house, as well as helps to increase the property value when you wish to sell. They also include some of the most hazardous systems in your home, electric and plumbing, that can cause some serious roadblocks to your renovation.

Angieslist.com provides us with some tips on dealing with these common problems:

Mold – Before beginning your remodel, check for signs of mold. Black spots, patches of drywall that appear wet, etc. Mold will develop behind drywall so you may need to open it up to check. If you discover anything call a mold remediation company to eliminate the problem before your reno.

Plumbing – If the original contractor ddn’t install your plumbing properly, you’ve got a problem. Give one of our plumbing experts a call at Patterson Plumbing & Heating to check your plumbing system and make sure its safe to use for your new fixtures.

Drainage – Poor drainage may mean clogged pipes, or other serious issues like water flowing to the wrong place. If you find water to be pooling up in the shower/tub give us a call!

Venting – Every bathroom needs an exhaust fan AND an outside vent. Test your venting system by turning on the shower and fan and see if your mirror fogs or drywall starts to sweat. Then turn off your shower and see if the humidity in the room decreases – if not, the bathroom isn’t vented properly. It could be a blocked/damaged fan or you may need a proper venting system. Either way call in a professional to be sure!

Each home is different, you may not encounter these issues or they may take over your renovation. But catching them early helps you finish your remodel within your budget! If you have other plumbing related questions contact us here at Patterson Plumbing & Heating today!
