Design Your Own Bathroom: 5 Features Worth the Investment

Considering bathroom remodeling? Maybe you're just interested in specific features, such as a tub-to-shower conversion or bathtub replacement. Before you call a contractor or visit that home store, you'll want to begin by establishing a budget before you shop around. Perhaps the most complicated part of the entire remodeling process is making sure that your budget allows for an affordable bathroom design that doesn't sacrifice quality when it comes to the features that are used the most. If you're ready to take the next step toward the bathroom of your dreams, here is our list of the top five bathroom features that are definitely worth the investment, minimizing the chances of major repairs or even another replacement shortly down the road.

Tub Or Shower

If your existing tub or shower is stained or chipped (and you simply can't stand to look at it anymore), it's time for a replacement. Whether you decide on a bathtub-to-shower-conversion or simply a replacement, you'll want to make sure that quality is at the top of your list when it comes to this major bathroom feature. Re-Bath of Arkansas offers top-of-the-line replacement bathtubs, featuring DuraBath® SSP that won't dent, rust, peel or crack. If safety is a concern, we also offer walk-in bathtubs that provide peace of mind that you and your loved ones will be safe both entering and exiting the tub. 

Vanity

Your bathroom's vanity is used just as often as the other features in your bathroom, if not more. You'll want to invest in a quality vanity that is durable and beautiful - without breaking the bank. Look for a countertop that won't easily stain, scratch, or chip, and you'll want to ensure that the sink will also withstand the test of time with frequent use. If you need a vanity with ample cabinetry, you'll want to check that the drawers and doors open and close properly and are made of a material that won't warp in a humid bathroom environment.

Toilet

You don't want your investment in this bathroom feature to be a flush! The toilet is considered the primary appliance of your bathroom, for sure. If your toilet is broken or leaking, it's time to replace it. Most toilets start displaying obvious signs of wear and tear after ten years of use, so you may want to replace it simply due to its age before serious problems appear. Here at Re-Bath of Arkansas, our expert team includes a professional plumber who will make sure that your toilet's components are functioning properly during your installation. 

Faucet

A faucet can be a beautiful focal point in your bathroom, but it's only as good as its effectiveness. If the handles stick, or if the finish is fading or peeling, this is one of the most inexpensive features of your bathroom that can be quickly and easily replaced. Here at Re-Bath of Arkansas, we offer faucets in a variety of designs and finishes made from durable materials that will last for years to come.

Flooring

You'll want to keep durability and safety in mind when choosing a flooring material that will provide a non-slip surface. One of the most popular trends in bathroom flooring is radiant heat, which is often just referred to simply as "heated floors." We offer tile, natural stone, fiberglass, and wood options from top national brands that are not only stylish but long-lasting!
