When does your bathroom need a new look?

If you have just moved into a new house, there is probably no need unless it was a pre-owned home. However, if your house about ten years old or even more, you may want to consider an upgrade or simply change a few things around. Here are the areas you should consider.

The shower


Most bathrooms will have a shower area which is either enclosed or open with a curtain. If it is an open one, consider getting an enclosure. Shower heads collect a lot of debris over time and can rust, look at 2017’s most recommended rainfall shower heads to buy so that you can replace it with a newer model that will also give you a great feeling when you shower.


The sink

This fitting needs to be replaced if it is old because it gets used a lot too. Consider buying an entire set which will match with the toilet and bath tub if you have one. Sinks come in many designs with some being made of glass, ceramic and even granite. Make sure you get one which can accommodate a hot and cold water tap and in can you want to get two, ensure they match.
