What An Enclosed Shower Does For You

In Los Angeles, enclosed showers are taking off as the supreme 2017 trend for your wake-me-later relaxation needs. In the bathroom trend of easy access with graceful simplicity, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Let’s get the basics.

What is an Enclosed Shower

Unlike the usual shower and tub duo, an enclosed shower is a space with glass walls, tile floored, and a hinged glass door to enter.

It couldn’t be simpler. Couldn’t be easier to use.

Enclosed Showers Give You Access

Face it. Tubs just don’t make sense. They’re weird to climb in, weirder to climb out of, and if you grab your curtains on the fall down - you’re replacing those.

With enclosed showers you just open a door. It’s that simple. Your shower integrates directly into your home seamlessly because the base is closely leveled to the floor.

That means if you or a loved one has a handicap, Novel Remodeling can easily customize your enclosed shower to make it completely accessible, like installing a shower chair for ease of use.

This general simplicity and commitment to access carries other virtues of an enclosed shower, like -

Maintaining Your Enclosed Shower

You would think that something so contemporarily designed would have a lot of finicky aspects; a nightmare to clean or repair. That’s not the case. See, the pieces of an enclosed shower are incredibly simple. Easy to maintain.You have -

The Stall

The Door

And your tiled floor.

There’s no tub to deal with. These simple pieces that combine an enclosed shower could not be easier to replace if something does break. It’s as simple as exchanging one part for another. General contractors like Novel Remodeling can easily handle the nature of shower enclosure repairs.

Cleaning an enclosed shower is as simple as taking a cloth to the glass with your favorite brand of cleaner.

Customize and Get Creative with Enclosed Shower

Something that people don’t know about enclosed showers is that they can be completely customized to your bathroom. This flexibility allows homeowners to add additional luxuries that can really change the experience.

If you don’t like the feeling of tiling beneath your feet, just change it to a wooden flooring. Paired with luxury shower heads, you are given the ability to visit the spa in your own home. Enclosed showers don’t waste all that warm mist like a conventional shower does. Instead of all that water soaking into your ceiling, causing gradual damage, that mist is used for your comfort.

Many homeowners install their enclosed showers with customized sound systems. Some have even gone as far as having an open flame and it’s no mystery why.

In a way, your enclosed shower is really just a specially designed room in your home for complete comfort. Because enclosed showers are not generally mass produced, they’re designed just for you.

Clean Slate : Why To Repaint Your Home in Los Angeles

Repainting your house is much more than just swapping one color for another. It directly affects your relationship to your home, and how everyone else sees it too. We broke down a few big reasons why you should repaint your house.

Increase Value

Painting your home is one of those magical little things that is easy on your wallet but big on value. Consumer Reports notes that painting your house can clear a 2 - 5% increase on the value of your home. At $2.25 dollars a square foot, even with the best brand of paint, adding a new layer of paint to your house is not only easy, it pays you back.

Freshen Up

Your house protects you rain or shine, both of which can take a toll. The sun hits hard, and paint chips in Los Angeles. Sometimes these little cracks in the paint can be fixed with patchwork but that ends up leaving the paint splotchy. Repainting the full exterior of the house gives a level of healing coverage that completely revitalizes a home.Novel Remodeling can help you get started on …

A/C Brands Are Not What You Should Worry About

I started researching this entry to find THE BEST air conditioner in Los Angeles for my readers. Unlucky for me, I soon realized that’s not the question to ask.

A/Cs are a strange wild west of manipulated scores, unrealistic criteria, and measurements that just don’t mean a thing. Lucky for you, I put in the legwork for some clear cut answers.

Air Conditioning Brands Don’t Matter

You ask me what the best blender is and I’ll research the finest strawberry to smoothie machine you’ve ever seen. I did that with double-hung windows.

But ask what the best central air conditioner is, and I’ll say that’s not the question you should be asking.

Here are a few brands you’re perfectly fine to choose from:

Goodman Trane American Standard Rheem Ruud Bryant

The technology behind air conditioners is not rocket science. Essentially, you have an evaporator, a condensing unit, and a fan. You can only spice up those parts so much.

There are bigger questions to ask. Like -

How powerful does my unit need to be?
