浴室を初めて改装する際の秘訣があります。

1.まず、浴室にどれだけの空間があるか正確に知っておく必要があります。そして使用予定のある全アイテムの規格を正確に測り、浴室に入るか確認しましょ�
2.濡れているものが一切ないことを確認しましょう。 古い浴室の改装の際には、古い備品が水に触れていないという確信がない限り、取り外すことが賢明でしょう。 また、下地が完全に乾いているという確信がない場合には、新たに設置する備品を翌日に取り出すことが賢明でしょう。

3.どの種類の壁や床が取り付けに最適か理解し、また、取り付けに際しては完全に接着していることを確認しましょう。そうしなければ、要らない仕事が増えることになります。

4.調和する備品を購入しましょう。浴室で使用したい全てのアイテムの写真を撮り、それらを配置した様子を想像しましょう。想像したものが気に入った場合は購入し、気に入らない場合には購入を控えましょう。

5.良い照明は浴室を引き立てます。まず、浴室で使用する照明の規格や形が気に入っているものであることを確認しましょう。また、浴室が薄暗い場合には、利用しにくくなることを覚えておきましょう。浴室は快適な部屋ともいわれます。その名の通り、浴室は快適でなければなりません。

Bathroom basics

Published on October 29, 2014, by in Guide.


The bathroom is the smallest part of the house, so you need to use the space economically. Bathrooms are not hard to design, as their use is pretty straightforward.

The most basic design is to use white. You can hardly go wrong with that. White is a very neutral color and choosing the fixtures are easier. You should also have plenty of storage space for towels, medicine, tissue paper, soap, and other stocks of toiletries you will be storing in the bathroom. You should also have some scents in the bathroom – but nothing to strong. A subtle scent from potpourri or scented candles will do the trick – avoid air freshener smells, since they’re too artificial. You may also opt to use older styles, but be sure that you maintain a balance between old (antique) fixtures and new ones.

Clueless about Bathrooms?

If you are renovating your bathroom for the first time, some tips:

1. You need to know exactly how much room you have. Take complete measurements of everything you will use to know if it fits in your bathroom. Rule of thumb, it is better to leave more space empty than crowding your bathroom.

2. Make sure everything is dry ! dry! dry! If you are remodelling an old bathroom, it is best to tear out the old fixtures unless you know that they have not gotten wet. If you are uncertain that not everything is dry underneath, then the new fixtures you install will probably be taken out the next day.

3. Know the kind of walls and flooring to put in and be sure that they are really sealed, because it not, it would mean even more work for you.

4. Shop for fixtures that blend well together. You can take pictures of all the things you want to use in your bathroom and imagine them in all their proper places. If what you see in your mind’s eye is awesome, then go for it. If it’s awful, forget it!

5. Good lighting does wonders for a bathroom. But first make sure that you like the size and shape of the lights to be used in your bathroom. Remember, if your bathroom is dimly lit, it would be hard to use that area. Sometimes bathrooms are also called comfort rooms. As the name implies, it should be comfortable.

Of Fixtures and Faucets

Choosing from the many types and forms of faucets and other bathroom fixtures you may wonder why some are cheap and some are quite steep. While most of the more affordable ones look quality and seem to have sturdy make-up they are mostly plastic and will break down more easily than other more expensive brands.
