The bathroom is the room in the house that is most reformed. Statistically, speaking of the total reforms in Spain as a whole, 25% of homeowners chose to reform only the bathroom in 2020, while in 2019 the figure was 22%. The kitchen, however, was reformed only by 10% of them. This indicates the importance of the bathroom in our home and we usually reform it more often than other rooms.
To renovate a bathroom it is good to know well in advance the different types of material, their durability, the distribution and necessary measurements for each element, choose the best coatings and choose the type of toilet. In addition, you have to think about creating lighting adapted to each area of the bathroom and, above all, that the bathroom is functional.
To make a reform we will have to take into account the following details:
You can choose between a built-in or countertop design, choosing between materials such as porcelain, metal or stone. If you install two sinks on the same front, think that between the centers of each one there must be a minimum distance of 60cm for its use to be comfortable.
It is one of the essential accessories. You can choose the design you want, size and shape. Perhaps you just have to take into account that those with simple molding in small bathrooms are lighter. The bigger the mirror, the more space it gives to the interior of the bathroom.
It is essential that you think about what weitht it will support. It must respond to your warehouse needs. They are usually 50-60 cm deep. The height is marked by the height of the sink and the length by what the space demands. The finishes are usually made of wood, lacquer, glass or melamine.
It is important to plan what type of lighting to use. Better always use LED to save and that each zone is independent, so that you can turn off the lights that you do not use, for example, while you shower. In addition, you always have to think about taking advantage of natural light, if the bathroom has a window.
FLOOR AND WALL COVERINGS
Ground parts eliminate joints, improving cleanliness and maintainability over time. Microcement, for example, is a continuous material with which you can make the sink or bathtub with the same finish as the floor and walls.
Concealed cistern toilets are visually lighter because the cistern is integrated into the partition itself. There are also compact or more voluminous floor-standing designs, for bathrooms where there is no shortage of meters.
Its main function is to isolate the shower and prevent splashing. It is essential that it be watertight and that safety glass be installed. Aesthetically, there are many options: from technological partitions that darken when used to screen-printed ones, with hardly any profiles or with very marked ones.
