How to Take Care of and Look After Your Bathroom Fittings

After spending a small fortune on designing and installing your new bathroom, it without a doubt makes perfect sense to spend a small fraction more time and money to protect each unit with the best protective solutions available for whatever each item requires. The bathroom is the room in anyone’s home that will consistently be facing the pressure and strain that a wet or damp environment can deliver, so it is really the most important room to treat with any added protection that is available so that you do all that you can to ensure that your items fitted within the room will maintain their fresh, stylish look for many years to come. It is also important to take precautions to protect the bathroom walls and flooring in the same manner, for the same reasons. For example the paint that one would use for decorating the bathroom is different the type of paint used to colour other walls inside your home (in case you are not already aware about this).

So after ensuring that the floors, walls and ceiling have the suitable protective layers applied to them, or have been decorated using the right formula of paints, the next thing to do is identify all other fittings and decorations that should have a little more protection from the water splashing and damp air that they will be frequently experiencing. Most people will correctly choose to apply this type of protection onto all of their wooden items, however a surprising percentage of people will forget or neglect that any stone items in the bathroom also need and will benefit from being treated with sealers and colour intensifiers.

After you have identified all the items that should be treated with some sort of water protective solutions you can then go and buy the respective solutions for each of the items and start the process of applying the protective layers onto your items. Before actually painting or spraying on the protective coats/lacquers, you will need to sand down and wipe down the surfaces of the items you are treating, so you will not be trapping any dirt or stains beneath the coat you are adding to your furniture.

Fitting Your Bathroom with a New Bath

Fitting Your Bathroom with a New Bath?

If you are struggling to decide upon the style and shape of bath you will be fitting into your soon to be newly renovated bathroom then this post might be just what you need to help you make up your mind. Being someone who has worked many years in the building trade, I have witnessed many bathroom renovations, so I would like to think that I have a good idea of what works and what doesn’t. Also I can give good advice on the certain types & styles of baths that are best suited to all sorts of different situations that a homeowner or home designer might be challenged with, while going through the process of furnishing the property they have recently purchased/designed.

Recently I have actually been responsible for overseeing a number of bathroom renovations for medium to large sized properties, with medium to large sized bathrooms. During these renovations, I have noticed that there is certainly a trend in choosing the freestanding type bath tubs instead of the wall fitted baths which in the past had been the standard for nearly ever bathroom, certainly being the most popular style by far. Not only are people going for the stand alone, free-standing bath tubs, but they are also selecting the designs that tend to be quite a lot deeper than that of the traditional, wall fitted baths of my generation. This deeper design of tub offers a more relaxing experience for the bathers, as they can fully immerse themselves into a warm bubble bath, without the worry of any limbs getting a little cold due to the person being a bit tall and not being able to totally, comfortably remain all underwater when bathing in the baths of the past, at a depth of what many of us would be used to.

I have to say that these Free-Standing or Claw-Foot Bath Tubs do sometimes look fantastic and they provide more flexibility with how a bathroom is designed, also it makes the process of keeping the bathroom clean a bit more practical. If you have a sizeable enough bathrooms and a big enough budget though, then I would recommend looking around for the right style of Drop-In Bath design to fit in with the rest of the bathroom décor and furniture. In my opinion, the Drop-In Bath Tub Designs really give off a sense of luxury and class and for me, they would be the Bath of choice if I were to be renovating my own bathroom.

It is important to do what it takes to get your bathroom looking and feeling great; as it is the first & last room you will visit in your house each day (of course this is obviously not including one’s own bedroom). Due to the bathroom being a part of your first experience of each day, it is the place that will usually or most likely also play a roll in ‘setting the mood’ for the day’s events, or in some cases just the mornings events. In  the same sense, as the bathroom is the last room you spend time in and experience before finally ending the day by getting back in to bed, it will either assist you with mentally ‘winding down’ and being prepared for a restful night’s sleep. Alternatively It can compound and add to the days pressures and stress that you’ve had to endure, making it more difficult for you to float away into the comfort of your dreams.

Now that you have taken my above comments into consideration, I assume you will have the same opinion as myself and many others, in that you should approach your bathroom renovation with the ethos that no expenses should be spared, with each item and fitting meeting the highest standards of bathrooms in the UK.

For me, I would consider the bathroom vanity unit as being the furniture item/bathroom fitting that should be the centre piece of a person’s home bathroom, and I you know where to shop online, you can find some stunning single & double basin bathroom vanities; my favourite types tend to be the stone top vanity units, and there is a big selection of them online, leaving you with many options to choose between

Bathroom Fittings That Offer Great Convenience

If you are refitting/renovating your bathroom then you of course must have many things to think about in regards to how you will want the new bathroom to look and feel. There are the obvious fittings that you will need to purchase, like the bathroom sink/basin, the toilet and then either a shower unit or bath, or perhaps both (if you are fortunate enough to have a large enough space in which to comfortably fit in a bath and shower unit). You then need to start considering and planning what will be the other accessories that you would like to have in the newly designed bathroom. For example, what type of towel rail will you have, will you have a towel rail? Will you get a wall hung bathroom sink, or will you go for something like a nice oak vanity unit, that will provide some much needed storage space. How about a clothes basket for dirty clothing, perhaps this is something you could do with? Also, an important fitting in my opinion is certainly the bathroom mirror! What size will it be and how are you going to ensure that the lighting of it will be good enough? Some people forget to give this important factor enough thought and end up positioning their bathroom mirror in a place that offers only a dim light reflection – this would not be an issue if the mirror had its own lighting fitted to it, but I have experienced many occasions where this was not the case, which made seeing any clear details of my face extremely difficult and left me feeling very frustrated.

So, my advice for anyone who is currently going through a bathroom redesign is to give good thought and attention to the type of mirror you will be purchasing and fitting in the new bathroom. The type that I consider as being the best are the wall hung cabinet mirrors, due to them being space efficient and offering great lighting from the built in lighting systems that most of them have. If you can get a double door bathroom mirror cabinet then that would be the ideal for size too. The mirrored cabinets will most of the time provide a respectable amount of storage space within them, which is really convenient for storing your shaving equipment, toothbrushes and toothpaste, cleansers, soaps and much more. So if you were to ask me about what I would pick as being the number 1 bathroom accessory fitting, that offers great convenience, I would not hesitate to select the wall hung mirrored bathroom cabinets.

How to keep good smell in your bathroom

Many people choose to put air fresheners in the bathrooms of their homes to make these stays more pleasant. Because, in addition to the frequent cleaning necessary in every bathroom, the humidity and the continued use by different members of the house can lead to unpleasant odors. To avoid them, ventilation is essential, especially after the use of the shower, which usually causes condensation, as well as the toilet.

 

If you are interested in creating a pleasant atmosphere in your bathrooms with a fresh and natural scent, here are three simple and inexpensive ideas that you can put into practice with little effort.

 

Home bathroom freshener

Make your own air freshener with citrus and spices by reusing some glass or plastic bottle and placing a piece of fabric that transpire, tulle or burlap type. Fill the container with the spices you want to combine and the peels of some citrus. The skin of the lemon is combined with a little clove and cinnamon. We can also fill our air freshener with lavender, rosemary, jasmine, cinnamon with orange or any scent that pleases us.

 

Essential oil in toilet paper

A simple and effective idea to give a unique aroma to your baths is to pour a few drops of essential oil inside the cardboard of the toilet paper. You can use this trick with both the roll you’re using and the ones you store in the bathroom. Just a few drops will give an incredible scent to your bathroom without the need for air fresheners. You can choose the aroma that you like best: lavender, vanilla, jasmine, rose, lemon, sandalwood, etc.

 

Trick to absorb odors in the bathroom

With this other trick, you can absorb the bad smells that are generated in the bathroom while leaving a good aroma. Use a small plastic container (lunch box type) and make holes in the lid. Inside, you should pour baking soda with a few drops of the essential oil you prefer. When closing the container, the holes in the lid will allow the bicarbonate to absorb odors and the aroma of the essential oil will impregnate.

 

One last thing

The most important thing to reduce the odors in the bathroom is to clean the bathroom regularly. Cleaning your own private bathroom will probably not need to be washed every day. The best way to do is clean it once or twice for a week. Not only the smell is better. We also have good hygiene as well.

  1. Rubber floors

Rubber floors have many qualities and benefits, but the most recognized is the fact that they mostly allow a greater significant adhesion, so they are generally widely used in places with slippery floors. Many people use rubber floors for bathrooms, which often serve as anti-slip.

Undoubtedly one of the most suitable areas to place this type of floor is a bathroom, because it provides some security to users who often wet feet try to cross those rooms. Non-slippery rubber floor in bathrooms and toilettes is one thing that can help reduce accidents; it is also suitable for anyone like teenage children or who is clumsy.
