Renovating your home can be a challenging task, but it sure has its upsides. Not only will you have the benefit of having a do-over for your home, but you’ll also be able to use this opportunity to improve and maximise your living space. The bathroom is second only to the bedroom in being the place that’s an absolute must for renovation. Bathroom spaces can have a huge impact on your day-to-day routine as it’s the first place you’ll visit to start every new day. Here are a few additions that you can look forward to installing in your renovated bathroom space.
Rehashing the bathroom space
Looking to spice up your bathroom? Having it converted into a wet room can make it look stylish and functional at the same time. Not only are wet rooms generally easier to clean, but you also won’t have to worry about getting the floor wet after taking a shower. You can clean the installed tiles easier while your design artfully integrates the facilities, which makes for a sleek and professional look.
Common materials you can look to use in waterproofing your bathroom space include sheet vinyl or concrete. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are great options for flooring. But If you opt to use porous tiles such as marble and limestone, you have to consider maintaining your flooring by sealing it once every few months to prevent making the floor slippery.
There’s more than one way to enhance your bathroom’s functionality without sacrificing too much of its design. A popular method of improving water drainage is creating a subfloor which can be tiled over to enhance water flow on your flooring. Another technique is installing showers that have tilted flooring for easier water flow. You can apply the same concept to your entire bathroom flooring, but you need to have a corresponding powerful drain to match the high volume of water. Installing a channel-style drain can prevent clogging.
Buying a freestanding bath
If a shower is not enough for you, a freestanding bathtub is an affordable alternative and is easy to maintain. The benefit of owning a freestanding bath is that it can be placed anywhere in the room. Since it’s practically movable, you can install it with ease with only a nearby water valve to consider in installation. Freestanding baths range from practical to elegantly stylish as they come in all shapes and sizes, perfect considering your renovation space, and without limiting available options. You can also have your renovation catered to the tub you’ll be purchasing, so it’s best to prepare in advance.
Relocating your necessities
Besides your facilities, you also need to consider where you’ll be storing your toiletries. Finding a dedicated area for storing shampoo and soap in your shower space which is within reach of your shower or tub area can seem like an obvious thing to do, but it’s also an obvious thing to miss.
