Building a bathroom has to be one of the most exciting experiences one could go through in a new home. The shiny supplies, the gleaming, white tiles and furniture, the wonderful feeling you get knowing that, in just a few days, your bathroom will look glamorous and amazingly top-notch! However, excitement is a pit that one must be careful not to fall into. Sometimes mistakes are easy to make, especially in such a complex progress where the excitement is easy to get wrapped up in, so here’s a few tips as to what you need to avoid when building your bathroom.
Shiny, cool showers and bathtubs are all well and good, but they’re worthless if you don’t have a compatible water system to make it work efficiently. You’ll need to have an expert look at your system in order to tell which appliances are compatible with it, such as whether it’s a boiler, gravity-fed system or pressurised system.
Regardless of how much space they take up, storage units and cabinets really aren’t to be ignored, and should still be a priority in your bathroom. You’re sure to acquire more soaps, shampoos, lotions and other items over time, so it helps to have storage space free. Not only to keep your bathroom practical, but also to shut away ugly bathroom necessities and leave pretty toiletries on display.
Let there be Light
A wonderful bathroom means absolutely nothing if you can’t even see it, and you’d be surprised how easy it is to accidentally forget about your bathrooms’ lighting scheme. Electricity and water don’t mix, so be sure to purchase water-proof lights that won’t get damaged by steam. Also, be sure to put your lights high-up, to make sure condensation doesn’t damage it either. Perhaps get a fancy mirror with a built-in lamp? Or a cutesy little overhead lighting system?
There you have it. We hope these tips come in handy to you. Building a bathroom is an exciting experience that a lot of people can get caught up in, so it’s important to keep the essentials in-mind and not lose track of what’s important.
