Improving your master bathroom or a guest bathroom may have benefits, but it will not benefit your household as much as making improvements to the family bathroom. Installing a smart toilet or touch-free faucet are ways that you can remodel the room and use newer technology. While these ideas may be on your list of things to do, you may have other plans in mind.
It is important to know when you will be working with the plumbing or electrical system. If you know that you are using the electrical system, you should hire an electrician for help.
Radiant Heat Flooring
An excellent feature that is not too common in bathrooms is radiant heat flooring. It is possible to add this kind of flooring to any room in your home, but the bathroom is one place that your entire family will benefit from its installation. On a cold winter day, your family will appreciate using the toilet, taking a shower, or getting ready in the morning while having warm flooring.
Since you will be adding a heat component to the bathroom, you do not want to handle this without an electrician's help. Before you plan it all out, you can have an electrician look at the power limits for the overall system as well as for the specific area to figure out weaknesses. It may or may not be necessary to add extra power through the addition of a circuit breaker.
The lighting in the bathroom may be sufficient for providing overhead light and enough illumination around the mirror where your family members are most likely to look at themselves. But, you may not like what kind of light you must use while in the shower or bath tub.
An electrician can help you install lights in the shower area and above the bath tub. This will make the family bathroom more functional while also minimizing electricity usage with task lighting.
Another project that you should consider hiring an electrician for is installing a bathroom fan. Not having one can work when you open the windows while showering or taking a bath. But, it can get stuffy in the room and stay that way for a while after a long and hot shower. A ceiling fan will keep this from happening and make the bathroom more pleasant to use for everyone.
When your bathroom remodel primarily involves the electrical system, you should feel confident with hiring an electrician and then handling all the other labor-related tasks on your own.
