Bringing HOPE with Baths For The Brave

Sharing hope has always been a goal of Bath Expo & Window Expo – that is why we strive to improve the lives we touch… with every project! The highlight of our year is getting to partner with Baths for the Brave each November to renovate a deserving Veteran’s Bathroom to thank them for their service. In 2019, we were blessed to renovate the bathroom of Keith and Brenda Murphy – two veterans who served in the U.S. Army in Korea. After returning to the states, Keith was in a serious accident that forced the family to make the difficult decision to amputate his left leg above the knee. Despite the hardships they faced, the family was so full of joy and incredible HOPE!

Life with one leg makes basic tasks more difficult, and while Keith had found ways to maneuver well for the most part, bathing still proved to be a challenge. For most Baths for the Brave renovations around the country, companies were taking an existing bathtub and turning it into a low-threshold shower so that the Veterans could roll in or easily step in. Keith asked for his renovated bathroom to include a tub and grab bars placed in specific positions so that he could use them to soak or stand. With our customized bath solution, we were able to position safety grab bars exactly where Keith could use them, and the results were beautiful.

Throughout the whole project, Keith and Brenda were so kind and thankful – we were supposed to be bringing them hope through a new bathroom, but they brought our team more hope than we could have ever imagined. It was truly our pleasure to serve Keith and Brenda and meet many of their friends at our reveal party. Bringing stories of hope like these to our community are what Bath Expo & Window Expo strive for. Watch the video below for more of their story, and to see the before and after of their bathroom!

Get the Most Value Out of Your Bathroom Renovation

Get the Most Value Out of Your Bathroom RenovationYou likely use your bathroom multiple times a day. It’s the place you go to when you need to take a shower or bath, shave, or get ready for work, so you’ll want yours to look good and be equipped with comfortable and useful features. However, if your bathroom is an eyesore or has a tub or shower that is less than ideal, you may be considering a bathroom renovation. While undergoing a bathroom renovation can be an exciting time, you’ll want to take the time to carefully plan it so you can get the most value out of this project. Below are some tips to help you with your bathroom renovation project:

Come Up With a Plan

The first and one of the most important steps of any bathroom renovation project is the planning process. You’ll want to decide what type of remodeling project you want to do, whether full or partial. Once you figure that out, make a list of everything you want to change so you can start your search for products.

Determine Your Budget

It’s very important that you come up with a realistic budget for your bathroom remodel. Look at your finances and determine how much you can afford to put into this type of project. Once you get this figured out, you’ll have a sense of what types of materials and projects will be most feasible for you.

Decide on the Details

Now that you have a plan and a budget, it’s time to get a little more specific. If you’re planning on a full remodel, it’s time to choose things like the type of material you want your countertops and flooring to be made out of, if you want a vanity sink, bathing options, and more. If you’re opting for a partial remodel, take a lot of time to make sure you choose a bathing option that will meet all of your needs.

Choose a Dependable Company

The most important step when considering a bathroom remodel is picking a reputable company you can trust. After all, if you choose an inexperienced company, you might end up with products that don’t look or function how they should. Even worse, you may end up with a company that promises a quick project but ends up taking much longer than promised, rendering your bathroom unusable for who knows how long. When choosing a company, make sure to check their reviews and ask for pictures of their past projects to help you determine if they’re a company you can trust with your bathroom renovation.

Turn to Bath Expo for Your Bathroom Renovation Project

How to Make the Most of Your Bathroom With a New Shower

Save Space and Embrace Style with a New Shower Installation

When you ditch the tub and upgrade to a shower, you save plenty of space. The thought of converting to a shower might be stressful, but a bath remodel can be a lot simpler, cheaper, and faster than you think with Bath Expo. Here’s what you need to know before you tackle a shower installation.

Recognize Your Bathroom’s Space

Replacing a clunky tub with a shower is a commitment, so the first thing you need to be sure of is how much space you have to work with. According to Houselogic, building codes typically stipulate a shower floor that’s 30 x 30 inches; the National Kitchen and Bath Association suggests 36 x 36 inches to ensure a little more room.

You’ll also want to be sure that there’s space for a shower door to swing freely, avoiding any wall or toilet that might be in the way. A 30-inch or so buffer should suffice. Unless, of course, you opt for a sliding shower door or a partial glass panel, both great options for cozy bathrooms!

To Curb or Not to Curb

There are plenty of choices when it comes to the design of your new shower, foremost of which is the shower pan, a.k.a. the floor of your shower. Most showers opt for a “curb,” or a small lip to step over that helps keep the water where it’s supposed to be—headed for the drain.

Curb-free showers, on the other hand, allow you to walk (or roll a wheelchair) right in. However, this requires the shower floor to be lowered, or the entire bathroom floor to be heightened, which can be a costly process. Know your budget limitations before you decide!

Pipes Galore

Much less fun than picking your style is making sure all your plumbing is in place. If you’re tearing out a tub rather than starting from scratch, you’ll need to retrofit the plumbing. Pipes must be inspected, the framing and subfloor must be checked for mold and mildew, and the wall must be tiled, covered in glass block, or replaced by a fiberglass kit to ensure it stays watertight and prevents damage to your home.

Make It Simple

All of this may seem like a lot. Trust us, we know. So let Bath Expo eliminate the stress and provide a custom shower installation! Our designers will come to your home, take measurements and photos, and talk with you about your options. Once you’ve settled on a custom shower that maximizes your space and works with your budget, we’ll come back and have the whole project installed in as little as a day or two. And we stand by our products—they’re so durable, they include a lifetime warranty.

Don’t delay your long-awaited bath remodel any longer! Give us a call and speak to one of our bath-to-shower remodel experts, or fill out our easy online form to request a free consultation and transform that cramped bathroom today!

Three-Quarter or Full Bathroom?

No matter what your dream bathroom looks like, Bath Expo of Texas is a leader in the bathroom remodeling industry with the skills and experience required to make your dreams come true. Whether you know exactly what you want or you’re unsure and just checking your options out, we’ve got custom solutions that meet your needs. Check out two of the most desirable bathroom types below..

Three-Quarter Bath

Three-quarter bathrooms feature a shower, toilet, and sink. In rare instances, particularly in older homes, you may find a tub rather than a shower in a three-quarter bath. If you want to keep your three-quarter bathroom but prefer showering to soaking in a tub, consider a cost-effective bath conversion and transform your tub into a shower. This style of bathroom is perfect for you if you want a complete-feeling bathroom, but don’t have a ton of space to work with.

Full Bath

Building on the three-quarter bathroom, a full bath has a tub, shower, toilet, and sink. Without all four of these components, the bathroom does not qualify as a full bath, even if real estate agents say otherwise. Full bathrooms are arguably the most valuable to your home as they feature both a tub and a shower, but they can also be quite large, limiting space in your home.

Shower/Tub Combo

Can’t decide which bathroom style suits you? Get the best of both worlds by choosing a bathroom that features a tub and shower combo. Tub/shower combo bathrooms are the perfect solution for those anyone who likes bathing and showering, or for families with young children who need the convenience of a shower with tub space for bathing little ones.

Combine form and function without compromising space in your bathroom by choosing Bath Expo of Texas for a convenient tub shower combo. For more information regarding our bathroom remodeling services and how we can help you create maximum value and functionality in your home, give us a call today. You can also complete our online form to request additional info and a free, no-obligation project estimate.

New Bath or Shower In as Little as a Day or Two!

The phrase “shower replacement” can induce stress in any homeowner—and for good reason! A replacement shower often entails huge expenses, lengthy installations, and unknown workers trudging in and out of your home. At Bath Expo of Texas, we’ve heard these concerns before, and that’s why we’ve designed a shower replacement process that is affordable, quick, and comfortable for you. Plus, our showers are completely customized to your exact specifications! Whether you need an accessible upgrade or a style makeover, our courteous professional installers can have your customized shower ready for use in just a day or two.

Three Reasons You Should Definitely Visit Bath and Shower Remodeling Showrooms

Think about the last major purchase you made. Was it a car? An expensive entertainment center? Or maybe it was your home.

Whatever it was, you surely didn’t go into it blind. Depending on the item, you probably read reviews online, visited several stores around town, and made a few in-person visits before signing on the dotted line.

So why should bath and shower remodeling be any different? Like any other major investment, it pays to fully explore your options before committing to a bath conversion or remodel—and there’s no better way to do that than by visiting a local showroom.

Why You Should Check Out Bath and Shower Remodeling Showrooms

We know you’re busy and that it can be difficult to justify adding another thing to your long to-do list. But with over a decade of experience here at Bath Expo, you can trust us when we say that visiting a showroom is worth the time. Here are just three reasons why:

1. You can see popular bath systems in person.

If you think you know exactly what you want for your bath and shower remodeling, you’d probably be surprised just how many homeowners change their mind when they view all the options in person.

For example, some bath systems look beautiful in glossy remodeling magazines…but would only make your master bath feel cramped. Similarly, some people think they want a walk-in tub but then realize how stylish and comfortable a roll-in shower can be.

By seeing the various bath systems in person, you don’t just see the features—you see yourself using them. And this difference is key.

2. You can see the real colors and textures.

In the same way, viewing your bath conversion options in person allows you to make educated decisions about styling. This is important because despite how far technology has come today, computer screens still cannot give an accurate representation of many colors.

By stopping by a bath and shower remodeling showroom, you can:

  • View the many colors available
  • Feel the texture and weight of various materials
  • See how you like colors and textures in combination
  • Mix and match different hardware finishes and trims

3. You can get expert help from trained professionals.

Some people avoid going to showrooms because they think they’ll be annoyed by heavy-handed salespeople or pressured into buying something they don’t want. And while we definitely can’t speak for all bath conversion companies in Texas, we can tell you that this is not the experience you’ll have at Bath Expo’s DFW showroom.

Instead, you’ll see friendly faces who are ready to let you guide your own experience. If you want a lot of help, we’re here! And if you don’t, we’ll let you browse our expansive space and approach us if and when you’d like to.

Visit Bath Expo’s Dallas/Fort Worth Showroom to See the Magic for Yourself!

Stop by the Bath Expo DFW showroom to view your bath and shower remodeling options with absolutely no pressure, or contact us now to get all your questions answered and schedule a free, no-obligation estimate in your home!

5 Surprising Health Benefits to Using a Whirlpool

When you first think of a whirlpool, the image of an upscale, high-end spa is probably the first thing that comes to mind. Purchasing a whirlpool or jetted bathtub for your home may seem like one of those needlessly extravagant things you’d only see on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, but the truth is that whirlpools can be found in all kinds of homes from modest to mansion.

Getting a whirlpool walk-in bathtub may be a bit of a splurge but what if I told you that there were some sneaky health benefits that come with the purchase?
So what are these benefits?

Stress Relief

The primary reason to soak in a whirlpool (aside from actually getting clean) is to relax. There’s something about sitting in heated water and bubbles that simply melts away stress. It’s no secret that stress quite literally kills, and so any efforts you can take to reduce stress in your life can only have a positive impact on your overall health and emotional well-being.

Weight Loss

Surprised? Don’t be. This is backed by simple science. Sitting in heated water will raise your heart rate and really get your blood pumping. And what’s a side-effect of an increased heart rate? Spent calories. Yes, you read that correctly. You can actually burn a few extra calories while relaxing in your jetted bathtub. The increased circulation can be beneficial to your muscle and skin tone as well.

Reduced Inflammation

The water in your whirlpool is heated to over one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. This heat can help provide immediate relief of any pain or discomfort you might be experiencing due to injury. The increased blood flow will help decrease stiffness, aches, and inflammation in your muscles and joints.
Detoxification – Heat also opens the pores in your skin. With your pores open and the drawing effect of the hot water, toxins and other accumulated gunk can start to slowly seep its way out of your body. Bonus points if you add extra ingredients to your bath that help facilitate this process.
Better Sleep – If you have trouble winding down at night (and a lot of us do), then taking a quick soak in your whirlpool walk-in bathtub can help send you peacefully off to dreamland. The combination of relaxed muscles, improved circulation, and the gentle massaging effect of the spa jets is better than anything you can take in pill form. No more counting sheep!

Get Started on Your Whirlpool Walk-In Tub

You can see that purchasing a whirlpool for your home can actually be a healthy choice. But just a quick word of caution. It’s best to consult a medical professional before making your final purchase. A doctor will be able to tell you if having a whirlpool is the right choice for you given your specific medical history.
When you’ve decided a walk-in tub is right for you, the experts at Bath Expo Texas are here to help! Simply give us a call or fill out our online form, and we’ll help transform your bathroom into the spa destination your body needs.

Selling Your Home with the Help of your Bathroom

There’s a lot of little tricks professionals use to sell homes. From planting flowers outside to baking fresh cookies before showing your home, the sell is often in the details. When thinking about ways to enhance the selling potential of your home, there’s one thing you should never overlook: the bathroom. 

A beautiful bathroom can make all the difference when it comes to creating a great impression for potential home buyers. The question then becomes, “should I invest in a bathroom remodel, or should I fix the bathroom up myself?”

How a Bathroom Remodel Can Help Sell Your Home

According to a study conducted by Remodeling Magazine in 2013, the average bathroom remodel produces a 72 percent return on investment. If nothing else, remodeling your bathroom will add value to your home, which is a good reason in itself.

That being said, what can a newly remodeled bathroom do for selling potential?
  • Creates a distinction. If there are several homes for sale in your area, an upgraded bathroom can be the distinction you need to help sell your home faster.
  • Establishes trust. Those who are looking for a permanent or long-term home usually want something that is move-in-ready. A modern, fully-functional bathroom tells buyers that this home has been well-kept and up-to-date.
  • Attracts serious buyers. A fixer-upper is more likely to attract real estate investors who are planning to flip the property. This means getting a lower price for your home. A simple bathroom renovation means you can increase the selling price and attract serious buyers.

As you see, there are some great benefits of a bathroom remodel. There is something else to keep in mind: bathroom remodeling isn’t an area for cutting corners.

Trying to remodel yourself can often make matters much worse, leading to costly repairs and renovation projects. Instead of stressing over how to get your bathroom in shape quickly and affordably, trust your remodel to the experts in Texas at Bath Expo, home to the fast, ultra-affordable bathroom remodel!
