Anyone who is thinking of beginning a remodeling project to redo their bathroom knows how much work it is. If you’re planning on doing such a project soon or have already begun and you need a break, keep reading to learn some myths and facts about remodeling your bathroom.
Myth #1: Modern toilets cost more than traditional toilets. False.
Pressure assisted toilets actually have a special feature that assists in saving water. It is true that sometimes these toilets can be slightly more expensive initially, but in the long run the cost will be offset by the significant savings on your water bill. These advanced toilets have a special design with an inner tank in addition to the traditional outer tank. The inner tank is fully sealed all around and when water is fed from the water line, the air inside the tank gets compressed. When you flush the toilet, water moves by more than just the force of gravity — it is forced out with the pressure of the compressed air.
Myth #2: Large whirlpool baths are an extravagance that we don’t need. False.
Lots of people truly enjoy large whirlpool baths because they offer an extra level of comfort and relaxation at the end of a long day at work. They are more deluxe models than regular bathtubs, but people report that they are happy with their purchase because they have a new place to relax that used to be just a boring bathroom. Taking a bath in one of these fancy tubs is a relaxing experience and is nice because it keeps the water moving and at a temperature that you specify while you are taking a bath. You will never get cold and you will feel like you are in a hottub.
Myth #3: Soaking tubs are the same as regular tubs. False.
Soaking tubs are different because they allow the bather to be fully immersed in water. This style of tub is perfect for anyone who loves taking long baths and doesn’t like to get cold when their shoulders or part of their body is exposed to the cold air. Soaking tubs are actually very similar in design to other tubs, but they are taller so the person doesn’t have to sit above the water level during their bath.
Myth #4: Large whirlpool baths are too expensive for the average person. False.
One of the best things about today’s society is how any person can access even the best and most modern features and products for their home. If you want to save up for a whirlpool bath, you can do this and set aside some money. However, another way to do it is simply by putting some money down and paying the total cost off over time. This means that you can enjoy your new purchase immediately and you don’t have to wait until you have the entire sum saved up to buy the bath.
Myth #5: My bathroom is the last place I should remodel. False.
Lots of people focus on redecorating the kitchen or living room and they put off decorating the bathroom. They think it isn’t as important because it doesn’t have as big of an impact on guests. This is a mistake, because it’s actually on the most most inexpensive rooms to remodel and can have the biggest impact on your daily life.
