It’s been less than 24 hours since Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement. Already the planning for the big day has begun. Much of the couple’s plans are very hush-hush, but around the globe, countless people have started figuring out how they’re going to spend the big day. That might mean skipping work to gather with friends and watching the entire ceremony on TV — or it might mean going on a no-tv-or-internet-news diet until the whole thing is over.
Luckily, planning your Oakbrook bathroom remodel doesn’t have to be nearly as stressful. Americans may be fascinated with the British royal family, but they’re in love with their homes, and making improvements and upgrades is more popular than ever.
Here’s a three step process to make planning your bathroom remodel stress free:
Step One: Look At Your Family’s Needs
Every Oakbrook family is different. Some families consist of only one or two people, while others have far more people. One of the most popular remodeling projects is adding a second (or third!) bathroom. This can promote family harmony and make it easier for everyone to get ready on time in the morning. Families who have aging family members may remodel a bathroom to accommodate older adults; this can include changing the height of the toilet, installing walk in showers, and more. Your bathroom remodel should be designed to meet your family’s current and likely future needs.
Step Two: Today’s Bathroom Design Trends
We can be sure that Kate Middleton’s choices as a bride-to-be will be strongly influenced by tradition. Bathroom design, however, need not cleave quite so closely to yesterday. The trend toward modern, streamlined, easy to care for and easy to use bathrooms leaves Oakbrook homeowners with a lot of freedom from a design perspective: choose from today’s popular soothing palates that feature organic shades and soft, cool blues; a stark modernistic approach of mirrors and steel, offset with greenery; an eclectic combination of personally pleasing individually selected pieces — the choices are endless.
Step Three: Finding an Oakbrook Plumber You Can Trust
Trust is essential. Prince William has purportedly put substantial amounts of time and energy into identifying the woman who will serve as Kate Middleton’s personal bodyguard. In much the same way, you want to research and identify the best possible plumber to work on your home. Ask family and friends for referrals, do your research online, and interview your candidates. Having a trustworthy plumber on the job is the best way to make your bathroom remodel stress free!
