During your bathroom remodel, you'll likely need to have new electrical fixtures installed.Your electrician can be your partner in completing your bathroom rmodel by adding a few luxurious items you might not have thought of before. Here are some suggestions for items you can have your electrician install for your new bathroom.
Electric Radiant Floor Heating
Electric radiant floor heating eliminates the problem of cold bathroom floor tiles greeting your feet as you step out of the shower or bath. This type of heating is installed beneath your bathroom flooring to create a unique heating source. Once installed, the heaters will keep the whole room warm, not just the floor. You may even love this idea so much that you decide to install it in other rooms in your home. Radiant floor heat works with hardwood, tile and concrete flooring to keep your home, and your floors, toasty warm.
You may already have a vanity light and a ceiling light in your room, but adding sconces to a bathroom creates a truly stylish finishing touch. Your electrician can wire the wall for your sconces if you don't already have junction boxes present in the wall where the sconces will go. He or she can also simply install the sconces when no wiring is required. Consider placing a sconce on either side of your bath vanity, and place one on each side of the bathroom door for an added hint of beauty.
Heated Towel Racks
Heated towel racks make a smart replacement for your bathroom's existing towel bars. These racks can be permanently installed and wired into your wall next to your shower or bathtub, so you always have access to a warm, soft towel. Because these racks look like regular towel racks, they won't detract from the look of your new bathroom remodel. They can also be used as drying racks for your more delicate laundry items.
LED Shower Lighting
LED shower lighting offers a modern way to make over your bathroom. You can add this type of lighting in your shower ceiling to create colorful effects for the falling water, or you can add the more traditional white LED lights to your shower area for effective illumination as you bath. Your electrician can install the wiring for this lighting and make sure that the installation meets standards and regulations for damp or wet locations, and he or she can offer suggestions about different types of LED lighting on the market for your bathroom.
Don't forget to include your electrician in the planning of your new bathroom. He or she can install a host of different accessories to make your bathroom look and feel more modern and luxurious.
