Restoration Ideas You're Sure to Love

After owning the same house for more than 20 years, it came time to decide whether to sell the home or fix it up. And after weeks of contemplation, I realized that I just was not ready to close the door on all the memories held in the home. But I also didn't want to live in a shabby old house anymore. So, I decided to do get involved with some restoration projects – the kitchen, bathrooms, and living room were all updated, as well as the roof. I also redesigned the entire property's landscape to give it a brand new look. Now that everything is complete, I miss the process! So, I thought I would relive some of my favorite projects by sharing ideas, tips, and tricks for renovation that might interest you. Hopefully you'll find the things I have to share inspiring and encouraging.

Why You Should Customize Your Shower For Your Bathroom Design

by Jonathan Lucas

When you are beginning the process of planning a design for a new home bathroom, customizing your shower doors is an investment that you should definitely consider. With an emphasis on using long-lasting materials, creating clean lines, and a designing with a minimalist appeal, bathroom trends are leaning toward the shower as a focal point. Modern bathroom designs eliminate the tub in the bathroom to create an open space and a sophisticated design through a high-style shower. So if you're ready to go modern with your bathroom design, there are a few reasons you need to customize your shower.

Custom Works For You

Whether you need to frame a space that is larger or smaller than average door sizes or want a look that is unlike anything you'd find in stores, custom shower enclosures work for you. Custom frameless shower doors can be paired with any type of enclosure and hardware option, giving you a design that doesn't make you compromise on styles. Custom frameless options are also a great way to update a bathroom that won't be completely renovated, so you can save money on total remodeling and still get an entirely new look for the end result.

Choosing to customize will give you unlimited options for designing, so you can choose the presentation and feature aspects you want to see everyday. But customization also gives you the freedom to design with options that are easier for you to maintain. Custom hardware, glass thicknesses and finishes, and frame features can make it easier for you to find a product that you can maintain. Since each of these options carry inherent maintenance needs, customizing each part of your new shower will ensure that you install a product that can last as long as possible, and it will look great for life.

It's A Great Investment

Customization is a smart investment for your home, because custom designs and features can add curb appeal and value when used instead of inclusions that are mass-produced. Though customization can be more expensive up front, you will get a product that can meet your needs better, and it will also offer a better fit for your room.

Custom bathroom inclusions also offer a unique alternative to stale design options, and results will be appealing to both you and potential buyers if you decide to sell your home. Investing in remodeling your bathroom is one of the best ways to add value, and with customization, you get a beautiful finish that can be a feature aspect for your home.
