What Makes a Great Bathroom?
At the end of the day, the bathroom is one of the most important parts of your home as it should be an oasis. Let’s take a look at what features make a great bathroom.
It’s Easy to Maintain
A bathroom should be easy to maintain. For example, if the water where you live is particularly calcium and mineral-rich, it’s best to avoid black tiles and countertops as they will be left with water spots every single day. You should install tiles and that are easy to clean and blinds that are suitable for a bathroom environment.
Energy efficiency is essential in the bathroom and only becoming more and more important. If you plan to stay in your home long-term, this is just as important as if you are planning on reselling your home, where energy-efficient features will maximize ROI. You can go for tankless water heaters, low flow or tankless toilets and even blinds that help retains temperatures inside the bathroom by blocking out the heat or cold.
It’s Bright, Fresh & Breathable
Relaxing, great bathrooms are bright and airy. They invigorate, refresh and rejuvenate, giving you a sense of calm, peace and tranquillity. Going for large windows, white or neutral-toned tiles will create an ambience you will love.
Wooden, porous materials and humid environments don’t mix well. You will experience mould growth, mildew and wooden blinds or boards that bend, crack and warp due to moisture exposure. Our experts at Archia will guide you in choosing the best materials perfectly suited to these high-humidity environments.
Some Features to Consider
Consider a Floating Vanity
Have a small bathroom? A floating vanity is perfect. Tuck a storage unit underneath or your child’s booster stool. Floating vanities also create an effortlessly minimal and contemporary look.
Consider Quartz Countertops
Quartz countertops are ideal for the bathroom as well as the kitchen. Quartz is much more durable than marble or granite and won’t stain or scratch as easily as it’s manmade with a special process that ensures its durability.
Consider Modern Shower Glass
As we stated before, if you live in an area with calcium or mineral-rich water, you’ll notice that it leaves behind water spots that are stubborn and difficult to remove. To counter this, consider anti-spot shower glass that will remain crystal clear even after a long shower.
