Add a Master Bathroom In Utah

Add a Master Bathroom Utah

 

If you own an older home and do not have the benefit of a master bathroom, but would really like to have one, there are several ways to achieve this dream. No one can promise that it will be inexpensive, but it the cost of it will depend on what method you choose and how elaborate you want to get.

 

The one obvious solution to adding a master bathroom that might be the easiest, but not necessarily the least expensive, is by adding a home addition. This can be the easiest because you are building an entirely new structure that can be laid out exactly as you like and there will be no tearing out and redesign involved, at least in the new space. This can be more expensive obviously because there will be all new building material involved and the cost of a contractor to build it, unless you are experienced enough to do it your self. Most of us are not.

 

Other ways to add a master bathroom to our home is to redesign some of the existing space in our home. This could involve connecting two bedrooms. If you go with this option, there will have to be plumbing installed and purchasing the new bathroom necessities like the bathtub, toilet, and sink. Of course, these purchases will have to be made no matter where you locate your new master bathroom.

 

Converting a garage, carport, or patio space can be places that could potentially be used for creating a master bathroom. Just use your imagination. You could also use an existing large bathroom in your home to connect to a bedroom to create a master suite. A smaller bathroom might be constructed in some other area of the home for children or guest. If you have more than one bathroom already, this might not even be necessary.

 

Will a little rearranging of a few walls, many good changes could be made for the better in your home. However, changing the floor plan in a home can be a little tricky. There could be structural elements involved that might be dangerous to the health of your home.

 

If you have any doubt about any structural changes you intend for a master bathroom or any other redesign, consult with a professional for advice. You do not want to start changing things that might not need to be changed. A professional contractor or home designer may give you some valuable tips to make your master bathroom project go smoother with less potential for mistakes.[1]

The Benefits of Carpet In A New Utah Home

The Benefits of Carpet

 

Swatches of carpet of tufted construction

Image via Wikipedia

First off carpet is not for everyone. Some people hate the cleaning that they have to go through when it comes to carpet, some may get sick of the color that it is, and it could bring down the value of your home or make it harder to sell if you have carpet installed, well it could, this is not the case every single time. But then again carpeting does have a lot of benefits and can also be considered up there when it comes to satisfying home improvements to decorate the interior of your home.

 

With that being said here is a quick fact for those that are living in the United States, is that carpeting is chosen 50% of the time for a homes flooring. That is above vinyl and above tile flooring, along with the other types of flooring that are out there. Now let me get into some of the advantages of having carpet in your home.

 

Carpet Is Insulated

First off carpet and padding can be considered a great insulator. That means that when you are heating or cooling your home, you will be able to do it more efficiently if you have padded carpet installed in that room, or better yet through out the entire home.

 

Carpet is Safer Than Tile

This is where the slip and falls will not happen is when you are on carpet, well the falls might but not so much the slipping. Tile can be dangerous when it comes to this, especially if you have a spill and you are walking around on some non slid resistant shoes, you are just asking for an accident, it is definitely better for toddlers too in my opinion as I have one of my own and she is always falling down hurting herself, thank god it is on the carpet though.

 

As stated above carpet makes for great insulation, this is good for trapping sound. If you notice when you are in a tiled home there will be a lot of echo when you are watching television or playing a movie on the big screen, this can be a problem for those that stay in apartments as you will more than likely always have neighbors. Carpeting is one way that you can help keep the sound trapped in your place and your place only.

 

The Disadvantages of Having Carpet in Your Home

It can be a pain in the butt to clean if you do not have a carpet steamer, or cannot afford to call out the carpet cleaners every couple of months. It is not really necessary to clean carpet that often though if proper care is taken, such as not letting anyone where there shoes inside of the home on the carpet. Shoes tend to cause wear and tear on a carpet really fast, unless you get a stronger type carpet like Bourber.

 

Also I have seen it happen many times, and pets such as dogs and cats can tear certain types of carpets to shreds with their claws. Although carpet is really not that difficult to patch if you have some carpet patching tape, it is still hard to do and not look like a patch.

 

All in all I favor carpet over tile, and especially vinyl flooring just about any day of the week for those reasons above. It’s mainly the pet thing that gets me about carpet though, if you have any advantages or disadvantages that you do or don’t like about carpet than please feel free to share them here.[1]
