6 Essential Things To Note Before Renovating Your Bathroom

shares

Renovating a bathroom can be unexpectedly complicated ­­– replacing old hardware and fixtures might appear to be straightforward work, but things can get tricky when taking into account the aesthetic appeal and utility of new installations. That said, here are some nifty options which can help revitalise your bathroom’s appearance!

Consider your fixtures
As the primary “point of contact” in a washroom, choosing the appropriate tapware is one of the finer points of interior design. For instance, with their sleek design and incorporation of Ecosmart water-saving technology, hansgrohe mixers embody the form and function expected of modern-day bathroom fixtures.

Space it out
Your shower area is perhaps the most important component of the bathroom after the water closet, so choose fittings that are well-designed and offer optimum functionality. GROHE’s Eurodisc faucet and mixer line feature sleekly-designed forms coupled with intelligent features, such as precise fingertip control and water-saving technology. The collection also includes on-the-wall shower fittings and a concealed thermostatic bath mixer that promises to elevate your shower experience.

Storage woes
Keep your bathroom clutter-free with vertical storage spaces. Not only do cabinets offer the option to store toiletries in tidy receptacles, they also help to hide unsightly clutter behind a pair of sleek doors.

Keep it organised
Like the organised look of cabinets, but prefer unfettered access to your toiletries? Consider getting a wall shelf instead. Sturdy and unpretentious, this is the perfect storage option for homeowners with a penchant for practicality.

Double duty hardware
Combining practicality and vanity, mirror cabinets provide the best of both worlds by keeping personal products out of sight while helping you to stay prim and proper.

Heated debate
Think about the type of water heater to use. Tank water heaters work by storing hot water which ensures a ready supply at all times. However, this also means that these models waste precious energy on keeping stored water constantly heated. Unlike their conventional counterparts, tankless models work by heating cold water on demand (thus saving gas and/or electricity) and they are relatively smaller in size as well. Moreover, tankless models also have a longer lifespan of 20 years, compared to their cousins.
