Bathroom needs to be functional, safe, comfortable and relaxing. We will tell you how to avoid common mistakes in a bathroom layout.

Choose right materials for your bathroom

The majority of home injuries happen in bathroom. Do not use smooth floor tiles there. Better choose floor tiles with an anti-slip surface.

Pay attention at the ceiling decor. Plastic panels won’t save you from a possible leak. Suspended ceiling is the best variant. If water accumulates in the ceiling, make a puncture on the ceiling surface.

Calculate the right number of tiles

The situation when you miss 2 tiles to finish your project, and the store does not deal with the same stuff any more is common. Better buy tiles in advance.

Note: diagonal tile layout needs 15% more tiles, and horizontal – 10% of the required amount

Do not skimp on bathroom faucets

If your budget is tough, make the right choice.Thus, choose once a cheaper, but more reliable and needed unit, than a fashion stuff. Otherwise you will have to repair your faucets or toilet once and again.

Install a high quality ventilation

Bathroom ventilation system is very important. It protects the room from mold and dampness.

Tip: sometimes additional fan on automatically with the light, however, is not always convenient. Better make a separate switch for your ventilation.

Pay attention to the height of the bathtubs and sinks

The standard height of a sink is 85 cm from the floor. A suspension model can be chosen if a sink is used by a shorter person.

Sometimes we have to install a bath on the podium. It may be inconvenient, especially for shorter people.So select a different bath tub model or install stairs.

Note: if your bath tub is built into the tiled podium, provide a hatch there to have an access to pipes

Do not install the toilet in front of the entrance

Do not install toilet in front of the door. Hide it behind a small wall ledge or partition.

Bathroom or shower – make your choice

Most of people would prefer to relax in a bath tub, however if your bathroom is small, choose a built-in corner shower stall.

Note: do not install bathroom light fixtures until you finish repairment there. Due to a high humidity all lights need additional insulation and grounding.

Take care about bathroom storages

Mount additional corner shelves, install a cabinet. This stuff for storing bathroom items should be provided in advance.

Note: Towels, detergents, cosmetics and hair dryer need to be at hand. Bathroom furniture is a must.

Remember about outlets

Provide at least one outlet with special protection against ingress of water near the sink.
