When you are ready to update your bathroom, there are design features that should be considered. Just a few changes can transform your bathroom into a whole new space. We have listed below 8 features that we believe will make your bathroom everything you want and need.
1.Top Quality Plumbing Fixtures
The plumbing fixtures in your bathroom are very important. How they are made and what types of parts were used is vital information and worth researching. It is best to avoid buying any plumbing fixtures that use a lot of plastic pieces, as they tend to break quickly and can affect their function.
Spend the extra money and buy the higher quality product. Not only will it make the whole process easier, but it will also give you the ease of mind that your fixtures will work properly and last a long time.
2. Ample Storage Space
When transforming your bathroom, storage space is very important. So many items are kept in the bathroom and how and where they are stored can be challenging. We suggest a combination of open and closed type cabinetry and shelving to make it easy to find things your family uses every day while keeping personal items tucked away.
Drawing up a floor plan ahead of time can be a great way to designate spaces for storage that were not previously available. There are many beautiful cabinet styles to pick from when you decide what will work best for you.
3. Cabinets with In-Drawer Electrical Outlets
When choosing your new cabinets, consider installing in-drawer outlets. These are very popular and add such convenience to your new space. Many electric items are used in your bathroom and can create clutter while also being a safety hazard. With in-drawer outlets, you will free up countertop space from clutter and provide a much safer environment. It can also be more appealing to have the outlets hidden and it will give more wall space for shelving or cabinets.
4.The Right Lighting
The right lighting for your bathroom is key. The bathroom is both a place where bright lighting can be needed for first-aid use or hair trimming, while dim lighting is great when you want to relax in the tub after a long day. Therefore We suggest upgrading your lighting with multiple concepts that will fit all your needs.
Here are a few types of lighting to consider:
- Ceiling Lamp
- LED Strip Lighting
- Vanity Lighting
- Track Lighting
- Wall Sconces
- Inset Ceiling Lights
- Pendant Lights
5. Heated Floors
This design feature is highly recommended and a favorite of remodelers and their clients. Having a heated floor brings an extra level of comfort to the bathroom that everyone is sure to love. There are many options for adding heated floors based on the size and type of flooring you will be using. With this type of update, you are also adding a great selling point, which can increase the value of your home.
6. A Shower Niche
The number of products a family uses in the shower can make it challenging to find space to store them all. When updating this space consider adding a shower niche. Gone are the days of using flimsy spring load shelving or shower caddies that get dirty fast. A built-in niche is a better option and can be customized to many styles.
Inset shelving allows for more space in the shower as well. Just be sure to measure the height and dimension of your products and consider extra space for overflow so the niche will be built for your needs. It can also provide extra style in the shower by using a contrasting accent tile or other material to add design.
7. Placement of the Shower Controls
It may have never crossed your mind that your water knobs in the shower could be moved. How many times have you sprayed yourself with cold water? Just imagine having your shower controls near the entrance to the shower where you could start the water before entering the stream. You’ll be able to moderate the temperature with one hand instead of jumping right in to expose your entire body to the too-hot or -cold water.
8. Handheld Sprayer
If you do not already have a handheld sprayer in your shower, this is a feature you must include. The addition of a handheld sprayer can offer convenience and accessibility, from making cleaning the shower a breeze to improving shave time. It can also be a great asset for anyone older or disabled that may need to sit in the shower. It is a great feature to have when cleaning up the kids or washing your furry friends as well.
