According to many of the product dealers that we work with at BCI Acrylic, homeowners are usually less satisfied with traditional bathroom renovations than with smaller projects. In fact, the most successful remodeling projects are those that seek to improve a certain area of the bathroom only—which is usually the wet area. While traditional bathroom renovations that makeover the entire bathroom is costly and time-consuming, wet area renovations are fast, affordable, and address the most pressing issue that bathrooms face, which is water damage.
If the idea of getting your feet wet with a quick and convenient remodeling project appeals to you, focusing on the wet area is an excellent option. In this article, our team at BCI Acrylic will go over what a wet area remodel is and how it can add serious value to your home.
Wet Area Woes
Cheap quality materials and older constructions are the main reasons why your bathroom’s wet area may look and smell past its prime. In the past, bathroom materials weren’t made to stand up to the daily abuse of water. As much as you may scrub and clean your bathroom’s wet area, the shower, tub, and the walls and flooring surrounding these areas will become harder and harder to clean as time goes by.
Sometimes, all that your bathroom really needs is a quick modernization of these products with strong, high-quality, waterproof materials that are engineered to resist mold and mildew build-up. Today, that means a quick replacement of your aging products with high-quality acrylic shower walls, showers, bathtubs that won’t crack, peel, fade, or chip. Premium products like these don’t have to be expensive, and can really pay off in the long run.
Evaluating Your Options
Depending on your bathroom’s needs, remodeling your wet area can mean anything from updating the faucets and fixtures, to shower or bathtub replacement, a tub-to-shower conversion, shower enclosure replacement, and more. It can also mean retiling the flooring with no-slip, waterproof floor materials, having a walk-in tub or walk-in shower installed, a simple wall surround installation, or other options.
The best part about wet area remodeling is that it can be tailored to fit your budget—while still offering exceptional results. The trick is to focus on what part of the wet area needs the most attention, and how this area can be improved to look nicer and function better than ever.
What if I Need a Full Bathroom Renovation?
If your budget allows for a full bathroom renovation overhaul, the sky’s the limit. As with any scale of renovation, however, choosing your contractor wisely will make the biggest impact on how successful your project is—and how satisfied you are with the money you invest and the final result.
Clearly, full renovations are more expensive and time-consuming. Often, they’re also unnecessary, as a simple replacement of your aging materials can offer surprisingly dramatic results at a fraction of the price. In any case, make sure to find a reputable and well-rated contractor that can help you to evaluate your options.
