Are you renovating your bathroom? Are you thinking of replacing your existing bathroom? Please do not make the awful mistakes some people have. Simple mistakes can lead to disaster.
Bathrooms and kitchens are rooms that are used by many people in the home and should be designed for function first, and style, second. Essentially, you should decorate a bathroom in a classic and neutral way, to keep it from dating, and to preserve the appeal, of your bathroom, for resale purposes.
1. Never Buy Cheap Fittings!
You’ve splurged on tiles, and a good quality bath, and now your budget is depleted, so, you opt for the more budget-friendly taps. Never do this. As a rule of thumb, you should over-budget by as much as 20% for a bathroom. It’s small room, but, highly functional, and in the long run, spending more, will pay you off tenfold.
When you look at reselling your home, you will deeply regret the cheaper fittings. Cheaper fittings will not last as long as more expensive, ones, either – invest in your fittings, and swap out the fancy flooring, for something that is a little less costly. It will pay you off, in the long term, to do this.
2. Is Your Toilet Squashed Into An Unsuitable Space- In between the shower and a wall?
Function. Function. Function. You are going to spend a proverbial penny, quite often, and your bathroom ergonomics are very important. Ease of use, and the placement of your shower, bath, sink, toilet, and bidet, in relation to each other – is extremely significant.
A bathroom is a small room that must function at a high level, and if you do not have enough space – it can be a disaster. Imagine how uncomfortable you are going to be, trying to squeeze yourself into a tiny space, to spend your pennies. Never compromise space, for style, or extra storage, when it comes to the essential function of a bathroom.
