The bathroom is one of the most important parts of your home. It’s where you relax, bathe, and get ready for the day. It’s also a place where you spend time unwinding at the end of your day, so it should be an area that reflects your style and personality. If you’re not sure how to design a new bathroom, here are some common mistakes that people make when they redecorate their bathrooms and hence you must avoid for a better-designed bathroom! Be sure to avoid them.
Storage Confined to Vanity
A mistake that many people make when designing their bathrooms is keeping the storage confined to their vanities. This means that there is no room for anything else in the bathroom. If you want more storage space for all of your items, then consider adding shelving or racks above your sink area so that you can store things like razors, toothbrushes without having them take up valuable space on your sink cabinet itself. In addition, if there isn’t enough space for these items on display, then they won’t be visible when you walk into the room and can give off a cluttered look instead of being clean and organized.
The right lighting in your new bathroom will make everything look better and feel more comfortable. Make sure you choose fixtures that provide plenty of light for all uses, including, grooming and showering! Avoid the mistake of poor lighting in your bathroom by using a dimmer switch. This can help you adjust the brightness without having to change bulbs or move furniture around.
Poor Placement of Fixtures
You need to consider how many fixtures you want in your bathroom before choosing a layout plan. It is important that each fixture has enough clearance space around it so that it does not block another fixture’s view when turning on or off a light switch next to them (which could lead to accidents), when you’re getting ready in the morning, or unwinding after a long day at work or school. Try to stick with standard sizes so there’s no guessing about where things go once they’re installed in your bathroom.
Forgetting the Window
Windows are an important part of any home’s decorating scheme because they let in natural light. However, not all windows are created equal! When selecting a window for your bathroom make sure to pick one that is able to be opened from the inside, this ensures optimal ventilation.
Windows add not only to the ventilation benefit of your bathroom, but the aesthetic as well. Having the ability to let natural light into your bathroom, and open the window helps with maintaining the cleanliness as well. Studies have shown that sunlight helps to kill some forms of bacteria. Make sure to consult a professional when thinking of adding a window to your new bathroom.
Thus, a bathroom should be created taking into consideration the different elements that make it more comfortable to use. Get your bathroom remodeled now for an elevated look now by availing the services offered by Crosby Home Services.
