Tick tock. Tick tock. It’s time to redesign your bathroom. As they rightly say, time waits for no man, so the earlier you decide to renovate, the better. To help you even come to a conclusion faster, I have outlined some top reasons for you to make the change. They are detailed below.
Leaky faucets, broken tap, brown water stains on the ceiling below the bathroom, yuck! Your bathroom allows you take care of yourself, you should care for it also. You should take time to speak with professionals in the art of bathroom redesigning so as to know modern installations which help you reduce payment of utility bills.
The drains in the bathroom already see so much gunk and hair, when redesigning, you might want to go for drain pipes larger than the conventional 1½-inch pipe. The cost difference is negligible and the benefits are undeniable.
You knew this all along. In fact, it’s the only thing you see when you are in the bathroom. Quit the denial. Those hideous, fading colors are annoyingly conspicuous. It makes your bathroom look like an excerpt from a 1950 Zombie movie. When renovating, try colors like white, black, or grey. These are timeless designs which give your bathroom a bourgeoisie feel.
It is ironic that the place we go so as to have a good smell has a bad odor of its own. That old bathroom smell? Yup! It’s no good. It is a sign that renovation is needed. There are several reasons for this smell. It could be that the toilet’s wax seal needs replacement. You might also consider replacing any leaking sink causing mold growth. An equally good addition is to replace the windows with ones which allow proper ventilation.
Yes, we know you sing your heart out in the bathroom! You’ve even won several GRAMMYs and Oscars. But having brightly blinding lights in the bathroom is not acceptable. Neither should you allow dim disco lights. Fatal accidents occur in the bathroom and it can be avoided by using appropriate lighting.
There are energy saving bulbs you can consider when executing your bathroom redesign. Skylights are also wonderful features to add. For folks who apply makeup or shave, bright light fixtures should be factored into consideration here.
If you realize that everything you need in a bathroom cannot be conveniently stored in your bathroom, there is a problem. A cluttered bathroom is a recipe for disaster and the best way to declutter is to work hand-in-hand with professional architects and engineers who will come up with novel solutions to your storage problem.
You should consider the use of a vanity with drawer storage as opposed to doors. Drawers are preferred because of their accessibility and ease of organization. They are flexible to work with and can be structured to accommodate large items.
Every once in a while, you visit that exotic restaurant and a trip to the bathroom leaves you in awe. You immediately take out your smartphones to capture the beautiful view. You also take a few mirror selfies here and there. Have you ever felt that way in your bathroom? No? Maybe? There’s problem!
Tips on Renovating Your Bathroom
I believe your appetite has been whetted. Now, you are craving a bathroom makeover more than ever. There are some tips you can glean on achieving that exquisite bathroom design.
The Toilet shouldn’t be the first thing you see when you open the door.
Many times, the bathroom door will be left open and this makes visitors and others in the living room have a peek at your bathroom. Come on, you don’t want people seeing this, do you?
Right Height for Accessories
There’s no one-style-fits-all to this. Professional architects and designers know how to work the design to suit your height. Ideally, countertops are 32 inches from the floor, the roll of tissue paper should be about 6 inches in front of the toilet, the towel is hung on about 48 inches, etc. these dimensions can serve as a guide, but you should be flexible with it.
Get a Pro
Finally, you require the service of a professional. This cannot be over-emphasized. If you try to go cheap, you will end up spending more than you thought you will. Professional architects have a wealth of experience doing this, it is best you hire them.
