What You Need to Know When Designing a New BathroomJune 19, 2021
A bathroom or washroom is often a large room, usually in a house or other commercial building, which contains either a regular bathtub or an alternative shower. The addition of a wash basin to a bathroom can be quite common nowadays. This is especially true for smaller homes, as many homeowners are reluctant to fit a full wash basin into the bathroom, even if it is available. A wash basin can be a handy feature, especially when you have less room in the bathroom.
The word “washroom” and “baths” are both used synonymously to refer to any room which contains toilets, and which usually has a shower or a bath. In the US, a lot of people consider a bathroom to be a place where you take a “bath”, where you take a shower, and where you do some DIY things. Bathrooms are also places where a person can go to get “used to” someone, or to prepare for a trip.
There are many different kinds of bathroom suites for sale nowadays, ranging from budget friendly to expensive, depending on your tastes and needs. A popular suite type is the “four-piece bathroom”, described as having a toilet, a sink, a hand-held showerhead, and a bidet. These are all very convenient, as they have everything you need in one room. However, it is important to realise that there are disadvantages to having a four-piece suite, as they tend to look small and uninviting, as all the parts hang together by a string, rather than being fitted separately.
Another popular bathroom accessory for homes nowadays is the “bathtub and shower” combination. These are a set of integrated components, which are commonly included in low-cost hotels and serviced apartments. They consist of the bath itself, a shower, and a hand-held showerhead, with the tub sitting on top of the shower. This is a very efficient way to install a bathroom, as all parts can be easily accessed without much need for manual assistance.
If you’re looking to save some money, then you may wish to consider fitting a “do-it-yourself bathroom”, in which the toilet and sink are the only separate components to be fitted. The benefit of this is that you will not have to pay a professional to fit the bathroom for you. A word of caution, however: ensure that your plumbing is up to scratch before attempting any DIY plumbing jobs. There are many dangers involved, especially in older toilets, so make sure your plumbing is up to scratch before attempting any modifications.
Finally, if you would like a bathroom that has just the basics, as opposed to the full-featured suites described earlier, you can still get a “standard” bathroom. These are bathrooms that only contain a toilet, sink, and shower. It may be more expensive than a suite, but it is not overly luxurious, as it lacks features that extravagant suites feature. Therefore, if you want a bathroom with minimal features, you can still have one by installing a toilet, sink and shower combo, rather than individual suites.
