Bathroom remodels can be daunting but they don’t have to be. If you are thinking of remodeling, then we have some quick and helpful tips to help you build a better bathroom.
You’ll want in-shower storage for your shampoo, soap, razor, and body wash. Don’t settle for cheap plastic units that hang from the shower head or attach to rods that run from your tub to the ceiling. It’s an easy solution for when you’re renting, but when you own your home, they can look ugly and can ruin your attractive new design. A better option is ceramic tile shelving that’s installed in the corner of the shower. The shelves run for about $10 at home centers and tile stores.
However, my favorite solution is to build in-the-wall shelving. Once you tear out the old shower, add framing between the studs in the walls for the shelves. The finished shelving, especially if tiled, looks attractive and doesn’t protrude into the shower, so you don’t have to worry about knocking off the shampoo bottles with your elbows when you’re singing karaoke into the shower head. Yes, it’s a win win.

If any part of the project takes you out of your comfort zone, call in a professional.

When you’re dealing with electrical or plumbing, DIY mistakes can be catastrophic.
