Your master bathroom isn’t exactly the inviting place that it was in years past. Everything still works fine, but you aren’t happy with the look. One approach is to rip everything out and start from scratch. Another way to go is to consider reglazing various surfaces and give them new life. Here are some of the reasons to consider this approach when you’re updating the bathroom.
You Can Change the Color
One of the things that many people don’t realize is that reglazing can be used to change the color scheme of the room. This is good news, since you really love your older clawfoot tub and hate the idea of having to replace it. The one thing that makes you pause is the pink finish on the tub. You can have it reglazed to a glossy white, a deep blue, or even go for a two-tone combination if you want to go with a black and white motif. When you’re done updating the bathroom, that older tub will look as if it recently graced a display at a local decorator shop.
You Can Transform the Shower Tiles
The color is not really the problem. In fact, the shower tiles are neutral enough that they allow you to use all sorts of different colors as the seasons pass. The only real problem is they have dulled a bit. Even when the shower stall is cleaned, it still looks a little worn out.
All it will take to transform the space is a simple shower reglazing. There won’t be any problem finding the right glaze to preserve the color you like. What the process will do is remove any residue lingering on the tiles and make them look as if they were just installed. Once the job is done and the glazing sets, you’ll be happily surprised at the quality of the results.
You Spend Less Money
There’s no doubt that refinishing different surfaces will save a lot of money when you’re updating the bathroom. Think of what it would take cost in terms of purchase, delivery, and arranging for a professional to connect those new fixtures. Compare that to having a pro come in and reglaze those same fixtures. There’s plenty of other things you could do with the money you save.
The Process Takes Less Time
Does the prospect of having the bathroom out of commission for a week seem less than appealing. If you opt for reglazing, a professional can have the job done in a matter of hours. In most cases, the glazing will need no more than 48 hours to finish setting. Two days of using the guest bathroom versus the master bathroom is something you can handle.
Whether you are tired of the look or if the look is just tired, it makes sense to consider what reglazing the tiles and other surfaces will do. Keep in mind that while you can purchase kits and try to do the job yourself, that is a difficult task for a novice to take on. Your best bet is to call a local professional and arrange for a quick inspection. Talk with the pro about what you have in mind and obtain a quote. When you see the final figure and learn how quickly the work can be completed, it’ll be easy to set a date and get ready to enjoy your rejuvenated bathroom.
