Modular bathrooms are great new trends in designing and remodeling. They can save the homeowner money and allow them to move their plan around,altering the look and feel of their home,while still retaining much of its functionality.
It’s always a good idea to break down your space in pieces before you start working on it. You might think of what you want and then work backwards to see what you have and where you want to place it. Then add to that idea until you’re comfortable.
We’re going to discuss one piece at a time. The first thing to decide is whether you are going to use the bathroom as a shower room,where you shower and get dressed or as a bath. Which way is the better way to go?
In a shower room,you’re going to need to make sure that you are very careful about the size of the room. Too small and you could be dealing with some pretty serious water damage and mold. A modular bathroom is a great way to get this worked out. This will make it easier to get the tub or shower you need without the worry of the walls and floor not being large enough.
Another thing to consider is the location of the plumbing. If the plumbing is in the same area as the shower area,you’re going to run into some problems. Since the modular type of bathroom is generally a smaller room,plumbing is more spread out. That also makes it easier to get a decent sized tub or shower,which will not only look great but also provide plenty of room for all the necessities of the bathroom.
Now,let’s say you’re in the shower room. What do you do? This room has to have access to the tub and shower without any problem.
Modular bathrooms take care of that. You can put the tub and shower on the side instead of in the middle of the room,which will eliminate most of the trouble.
The shower room is where the “shower” really comes in for most people. A modular bathroom will make this easy because you can create the appearance of an enclosed room. You can choose from a wide variety of materials to match your taste and help you customize your room.
I like to add curtains to make my room look larger. It gives the illusion of more space. Many modular bathrooms come with curtains that fit into the walls and look like you can’t see through them.
And then we have the dryer. Is there such a thing as a modular dryer? Yes! Many modular bathrooms come with a compact,portable dryer unit that looks like it’s permanently installed in the wall.
That’s okay though because you can actually turn the dryer on and off with the push of a button. Some manufacturers also have remote controls,so that if you need to dry your clothes before they become all wrinkled,it’s easier than ever to do so. Also,they have a built in iron that works great.
The modular bathroom is a great way to combine the functional and the decorative elements of the design. You can get creative and keep all the comforts of your family and friends but still have room for all of your essentials.
