When designing a small bathroom you need to seriously consider the bathroom accessories and their long-term cost as well. Along with choosing the best design for your small space you should also think about how the fixing of equipment is going to affect its durability in the long-term. A good example is choosing the wrong location to fix your closet and identifying this only when the bathroom starts leaking into the kitchen. These experiences though are unexpected they are surely likely. Keeping this aspect in mind will allow you to choose the location and accessories used as well as the plumbing perfectly.
The foremost issue to be addressed is indisputably surface finishes, the materials that go on your toilet floor, walls, countertops and storage facility. These determine how your washroom works in terms of convenience, maintenance, feel, look, smell. Materials that withstand exposure to moisture or humidity, hot and cold conditions and are friendly to work with and maintain are ideal for washroom surfaces. While ceramic tiles for walls are tried and trusted, we certainly do not require limiting ourselves here. A little imaginative, careful planning can make some exciting options work.
If you are considering the wall placement of the niche, it is also important to think about height. Clearly, think of placing the niche at the right height from the floor so you won't have to reach too high or low to use your bathroom products. If you are installing a niche in a shower or tub combination, position the niche so you can access bath products easily whether you are taking a shower. In a home, a lower height will allow kids to reach everything in a safety manner.
What size you pick is going to determine how beautiful or ugly your place is going to look. So, consider how much space you have in your bathroom, cloakroom or other room and what washbasin size would be ideal for that space. Also, where you are going to place your basin. If you have a big bathroom, you have wide variety to choose from. You can opt for counter-top basins, pedestal basins. However, if you just have small space to place your basin then avoid counter-top. You can opt for wall-mounted basin, corner basin or other small basins which won't take much space.
If you want to upgrade that old vanity, you should give a go to the antique dresses at antique stores or flea markets. The beauty of these antique stores is that they offer beautiful vanity furniture at a fraction of the cost of new furniture. So, heading to these stores is a great idea if you are on a tight budget.
We tend to think of a sink as a necessity, but it should also be a great looking accessory for the room it is in. You want a product that blends well, holds up well, and offers a great price. If you are in the market for a new one, consider getting a ceramic sink. There are plenty of reasons why this is a good investment.
Who says the bathtub has to be white? Also, why does it have to be brand new? A trip to the flea market and other state fairs opens up your horizons when it comes to home pieces that are one of a kind and carries in itself the kind of history that you can never experience with brand new items.
You may decide to install a circular sink, for example, which looks great in a semi-recessed design. Alternatively you might prefer a square or rectangular shape. All of these basins are widely available in a range of materials including glass, stone and ceramic - which gives you something else to consider.
