Understanding Construction Delays

About a year ago, I could tell that our home project was a little delayed. Our team of contractors had been struggling to work with some of their providers, so I decided to work with another team altogether. It was really frustrating, but I could tell that it was the right call to make. After we made the transition, the new staff got right to work addressing some of the most serious concerns. I wanted to create a blog all about understanding construction delays so that other people could see how difficult it can be to resolve them on your own. Check it out!

8 Less-Common Bathroom Remodeling Ideas

Gina Hawkins

Remodeling ideas can feel worn out, especially if this isn't your first renovation effort. You can look to these 8 uncommon ideas for inspiration in a new bathroom remodel.

Exposed Plumbing

Industrial looks are popular in many branches of renovation work, and bathrooms offer a chance to take advantage of something that's already there. This approach rarely looks great if you have PVC pipes, but you can swap them out for metal pipes instead. Leaving the plumbing exposed provides greater visual interest. It also might save you some money because you won't have to build the plumbing into the walls or hide it in a cabinet.

Heated Floors

Cold bathroom tiles are unpleasant. If you're doing a bathroom remodel, there's a good chance the existing tiles are coming up. Why not add some heating to the floor?

Side-by-Side Sinks

Especially if two people regularly use a bathroom at the same time, side-by-side sinks are a blessing. A couple might both need to brush their teeth and freshen up before going to work, for example. Side-by-side sinks can make life with a master bathroom much more convenient.

Greater Line Capacity

Bigger plumbing lines allow you to supply more water. It's a great addition if you're not getting enough pressure. Be aware, though, that it can lead to wastefulness. If you are trying to go green or have kids that are likely to let the water run, you might want to be careful with this bathroom remodeling idea.

Wooden Materials

The cultural association of tiles with bathroom remodeling is strong. However, a renovator or manufacturer can oftentimes treat wood to be sufficiently waterproof to do the job. Wood is a wonderful way to escape the monotony of white bathrooms and tiles, too.

Frame the Mirror

Many bathroom mirrors are frameless or close to it. Adding a frame can turn the already-interesting focal point into something that has a greater visual impact.

Embrace Your Vanity

A vanity can add function and provide another point of interest. They're also easy to accessorize, so you can tailor them to your specific needs. For example, you can readily use the cabinet underneath to add storage.

Feature-Rich Showers

Advances in waterproofing and smart home technologies have made showers more feature-rich than ever before. You can introduce in-shower entertainment options and voice assistance. It's also possible to add different kinds of jets and showerheads to provide a custom showering experience. Even unique and programmable lighting arrays can make a shower more interesting to see and use.
