Get a San Diego contractor that will source supplies for you
It is not safe for you to go into crowded big-box stores and hardware stores to purchase building supplies. You can limit that exposure by working with a San Diego contractor such as Creative Design & Build who will go out and procure your bathroom and kitchen supplies for you. This includes:
- Countertops and faucets
- Lights and lighting features
- Flooring materials
- Mirrors and vanities
- Bar stools for your kitchen island
- Paint and wallpaper
Seek secondary accommodation during the remodel if possible
If the remodel at your property will take a few days, you can cleverly limit the exposure to other people by temporarily relocating your family to a secondary dwelling space. You could put up at a hotel. Or maybe you prefer a short term rental space on Airbnb? This will shield you from coming into contact with all the people who will be coming to your site daily. Nevertheless, we will endeavor to work fast so that you can have your new space all to yourself as soon as possible.
Decontaminate your San Diego space after the remodel just to be safe
Last, but not in any way the least, another serious measure you could (and should) take at this time is to decontaminate your newly-remodeled space to limit chances of coronavirus cross-infection. This will give you utmost peace of mind as you enjoy your new swanky kitchen or bathroom. Although all our staff at Creative Design & Build will be wearing protective gear and sanitizing frequently, there is always a risk that there is Covid-19 particulate matter in the air or on your surfaces. Hire a 3rd party cleaning service to do it for you. Or maybe you want to decontaminate your house by yourself?
Bathrooms are some of the most ‘delicate’ spaces in any home. Unlike other rooms that can be allowed to age a little bit, bathrooms have to be in good shape all year round because they are the hygiene headquarters of any given house. The kitchen holds the same position too. However, let’s focus on the bathroom for now. How do you tell that your bathroom needs some work? Here are a few pointers.
Bathrooms are highly susceptible to mold due to the water and moisture that is constantly circulating and flowing around its surfaces. The walls and ceilings are especially affected. And because most bathrooms are light in color, the mold stands out like a sore thumb creating an eyesore for all that visit. If this is the case with your bathroom, a fresh coat of paint is past due. Not only that, you may also need to improve air circulation/ventilation in there by maybe installing a larger window.
Cracked, dirty or stained tiles
Most bathrooms are covered in tiles. There are tiles on the floor and there are tiles on the walls. Over time, tiles will show signs of age (or neglect). And it does get to a point where the only solution is to replace them. If your tiles are broken, cracked, or stained, you most probably need to retile the bathroom. The same applies if the grouting on your tiles is chipped, stained or missing in whole. Retiling your bathroom not only gives it a facelift, it also helps prevent water damage behind the walls and underneath the floor.
No one enjoys taking a shower or a bath in a poorly-lit space. For one, everyone needs good visibility when taking a bath. Secondly, lighting is very important if the bathroom is to be kept clean. And third, great lighting simply makes a bathroom look elegant and chic. If your bathroom has just a single lonely dim bulb or no natural light whatsoever then consider installing modern lighting, improving the flow of natural light, and probably changing the wall décor to allow better light reflection.
Leaky faucets, pipes, shower or shower base
Plumbing is critical for a bathroom. The moment pipes and faucets start to fail the bathroom starts to get dysfunctional. And you don’t want your bathroom getting dysfunctional, whether it’s the toilet, the faucet, or the shower system. Not only can it get unhygienic, messy, and wasteful on water, it can also lead to water damage, rot, mold, algae, termites, and other related issues.
Last but not least, your bathroom needs a remodeling if it has outdated features. It’s very important to keep your décor updated with the times. And in 2019 some features are just too drab to have anymore. For example, if your bathroom still has glass bathroom tiles or that 1960’s green wall paint then it’s time to change it. A bright contemporary theme will immediately transform your space and make you want to spend more time in there.
