The restroom can be a very important part of your home. In addition to the fact that this is possibly one of the most private spaces in your household, it also needs to be maintained in a constant state of cleanliness and needs to be able to let the person using it relax and feel free. Often we come home tired from the day’s challenges, work and school looking forward to a long shower or a soak in the tub. Imagine having to take that shower break in a restroom that does not work right or feels claustrophobic? Here are some helpful tips to design a restroom that you will be proud to even show off.
Give it enough spaceWhen you consider modern bathroom designs in your floor plan, make sure that you allocate enough space for it. You need to have enough space in a restroom for it to feel breathable inside. The fact that it will be damp and wet a lot of the time means that the smaller the space is, the clammier it is going to feel. Make sure that you allocate enough space so that the shower, tub and toilet area are all accessible safely and easily. Also make sure to not position the toilet area right next to your wash basin or shower.
Buy good fittingsWhen you do bathroom improvement in Canberra or construction, the fittings that you choose will play a large role in the final result. Skimping out on expenditure and buying something of low quality will not help you in the long run. Most home owners find out that repairs can be expensive, time consuming, uncomfortable and stressful, especially if the house only has one restroom. You do not have to buy branded designer fittings that will cost you a fortune, just try reputed brands that will give you some sort of warranty if possible. Also remember that if you buy fittings which can only be imported down, you will find yourself in a fix if there is an urgent repair. Look for fittings that are easily available as well.
Let enough light and ventilation inA restroom that does not allow for enough light and ventilation will begin to smell musty and like moldy. Try to build in some pergola like structure at least so that enough natural light and air enter through into the restroom. You can also place an exhaust fan into a wall so that the air inside will be drawn out. However, the fact that there is natural light and air coming in means that your restroom will smell fresh, remain dry and look pleasant always.
