With the beginning of fall, we also mark the start of the holiday season, so it’s time to start preparing your dream wishlist of gifts you would like to receive, or perhaps even gifts you would like to give to yourself (we could all use a little more self-love).
One gift that you will never regret, is the gift of a new bathroom. Your bathroom should be a place of tranquility and rejuvenation. The place you go after a long day of work to take a bath, wash your face, and get ready for a night of deep sleep. Make sure your space actually reflects all of those goals by upgrading some or all of it.
When was the last time you updated or renovated your bathroom? We’ll help make this dream a reality with a list of some of your must-have features and our assistance when you decide to make your bathroom dreams come true!
Try a New Layout
Reworking the layout of your bathroom will definitely take the most time and money, but it definitely has its benefits. A lot of older bathrooms and homes were designed in a very compartmentalized and segmented way. This really disrupts to flow of your space and can make it feel significantly smaller and claustrophobic.
Opening the layout of your bathroom up, even if you don’t expand the footprint, will make the space feel much larger and more spacious!
Upgrade Your Fixtures
This seemingly minor change in your bathroom will have a big impact on not only the way it looks but also on its efficiency! If it’s been a while since you replaced the faucets and showerhead in your bathroom, then there’s a good chance your faucet uses about 2.2 gallons of water every minute the faucet is turned on. By upgrading your faucet to one with a WaterSense label, you could reduce your water use by 30 percent.
WaterSense label products are certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency for using significantly less water than standard products.
Install a New Water Heater
Yes, this sounds like a mundane update to make, but what’s the point of having a luxurious bathroom if the hot water is unreliable? Upgrading your water heater will ensure that you constantly have hot water available, will lower your energy bills since new water heaters operate more efficiently, and will make your home more efficient by saving you water and energy.
Check the Details
If you want to get really fancy with your new bathroom, add a few of these extra features:
Towel warmer: It’s always a bit of a rude awakening when you step out of the warm shower and into the cold bathroom, but quickly bring yourself back to warmth with a towel straight from your towel warmer!
Mirror de-fogger: When you get out of the shower before work, there’s no time to waste, especially not when it comes to waiting for your mirrors to defog. Never worry about this inconvenience again when you apply a mirror defogging film. This thin film conveniently keeps your mirrors from fogging up from the steam in your shower!
