When renovating your Bathroom, there’s a lot to keep in mind. Planning and building your customised dream bathroom will take its time, so don’t hurry to brainstorm and find the right components, it will be worth taking your time. Also, be sure you have a realistic and affordable idea, as you don’t want to run out of your budget halfway through! There are a few more things to keep in mind when building your new private relaxation area, so to assist you on your bathroom renovation project I’ve set up a small list of what to focus on. First, let’s look at the dos:
Do select age-appropriate interior
Renovating your bathroom isn’t a yearly project. When you invest in a bathroom renovation, you want it to last for at least two decades before considering to renovate again. A lot of people think sterile and boring when talking about age-appropriate bathrooms. Instead, think of hotel room bathrooms, which mostly are age-appropriate due to official standards and hotels not wanting to renovate every few years. With hotels, you will notice that they only improve the living comfort. If you go to the effort of renovating and reconstructing your bathroom, do so with the future in mind. One day, you and/or your relatives will be less mobile, so it’s a good idea to create an accessible bathroom. One way of achieving this, for example, could be with a walk-in-shower, which is easier to use than a bathtub-shower combination.
Do enlarge your bathroom optically
The all-time curse of city-apartments – a small bathroom. Don’t worry, there are some tricks to make your bathroom appear larger so that your guests won’t feel claustrophobic! Use bright colours and, if possible, a good amount of daylight to avoid a feeling of a crowded, small and tight room. Large mirrors placed over the sink or mirrored wall tiles in case of a lower budget are also helpful and they help to create the optical illusion of a bigger room.
Do add light
If there is not enough light installed, it not only makes it hard to shave or to put on makeup, it will also create a less warm atmosphere. A general rule of thumb is that there’s never too much light. If you have a window, don’t put anything in front of it or hang too dark curtains. Natural light is the best for your eyes and for your overall health!
