Bathroom remodelling: first be smart, then be fancy
When visualising your perfect bathroom and choosing its’ layout you should always proritize accessibility and functionality. It is best to start with the floor; consider installing an electric mat which will always keep your feet warm and a programmable thermostat will allow you to save energy. You should also decide whether you prefer tiles that are easy-care (porcelain/glazed) or nonslip, which can be matte finished or sand grain glazed. Also, make sure that the tiling is durable enough, meaning it either grade 1 or 2, as grade 3 is intended for walls. Pay attention to the absorption percentage number, which indicates how much water will seep through.
For showers, the number should be less than 3%. If you’re not sure what solutions to go for, feel free to contact the experts at Roman Home Remodeling Contractors who will be more than glad to help. Moreover, You should not neglect ventilation. This is why you should get a fan and place it conveniently, outside of shower.
