Raise a hand if you love spending time in your bathroom. Mine is up in the air. Due to the atmosphere I love to create in there, my showers always take much longer than expected. First of all, I never set a foot in there without a device connected to my Bluetooth speaker. Music is a must have. For me, it’s as important as the towel I wrap myself in afterwards.
However, this pleasant atmosphere would not be possible without first supplying your bathroom with all the essentials it requires and decorating it in accordance with your style. Imagine setting your mind on a shower after a long, exhausting day and, all off a sudden – you find you are missing one shower head. Oops, how utterly inconvenient, am I right?
Of course, you wouldn’t let that happen. But, still, imagine it. The picture in your mind right now only goes to show how much we take for granted some of the most indispensable elements our whole existence depends on. Have I taken this too far? I might have. Anyway, you get what I am trying to say.
In order to try and avoid these inconveniences, you have to think about everything while designing your bathroom. And I mean everything. There are proper steps to take. And you better not skip any, or you will end up with a badly used space.
Know Your Space
Who here hasn’t dreamed of an enormous bathroom, with a hot tub and everything? When you think of your perfect bathroom, it slightly feels like you are thinking of a spa. Oh, wouldn’t that be great. But, let’s get real for a change. You can’t just snap your fingers and expand the room as much as you would like.
So, take a really long and good look at the space that is to become your bathroom. Now do it again. Can you picture it? Does it have enough room for everything you are trying to fit in there? Stop, no, don’t think that you can squeeze just one more thing in there. It just won’t work, trust me.
You want to achieve a neat, ordered look, and not to end up with a cramped space you will eventually grow to resent. The key is to remain objective and think of a way to incorporate all the essentials while still keeping it in line with your style. In any case, the accessories you are thinking of right now can be added later if you find that they can contribute to the overall look. But, for the time being, think in terms of the most essential elements.
Know Your Budget
The next significant step is to determine your budget and limit your expectations within its scope. Sure, you want all the best things, but you may have to give up some too. After all, money does not grow on trees. For most of us, anyway.
Be that as it may, and no matter the details of your financial plan, rest assured that you will be able to furnish your bathroom with all the necessary equipment. Just make sure to hop on any bathroom supplies review website and you will be able to find everything you need and within your budget. So, decide on the amount you want to spend and do some research in order to get the best quality for your money.
Remember Not To Forget
After you have done some careful planning, it’s time to start shopping. However, in my experience, there is a big chance that you will forget something. No matter how much time you have invested in preparation, something always slips away. It’s an unwritten law, I guess.
Given this fact, I will try to make your life a bit easier. Below, you will find a number of bathroom essentials that are the easiest to forget. And yet, they are absolutely necessary for your everyday life. Grab a pen and put these on your shopping list.
Since we have already had our encounter with this magnificent product at the very beginning of our article, it deserves the first place on the list of most essential supplies you do not want to forget. You are probably laughing and saying something along the lines of: “Who could forget such a thing?” But, trust me, it happens. Okay, I admit it, it happened to me. Laugh all you want, but make sure to WRITE THIS DOWN.
When shopping for a shower head, there are several things to consider. Some of the features you should pay close attention to include: corrosion resistance, installation difficulty, water pressure regulation and, of course, the warranty offered. After checking for these specifics, you can choose the design that best suits the overall look of your bathroom.
Continuing along the same lines, this is another must-have on our list. Similarly, you want to check the basics, such as temperature control, installation process, size, weight, and once again, the warranty you can get. In addition to that, when shopping for a faucet, you should check out the available spraying options.
Well, I can bet that you would have forgotten this one if it weren’t for me. Am I right? Who on Earth thinks about shower filters when decorating their bathroom? Nonetheless, you definitely should, especially if you don’t own a whole house water filter.
But, what is it that these filters actually contribute? By removing chemical contaminants, such as chlorine, they make your water much less harsh. This has a great impact on your hair and skin, leaving them feeling significantly softer and healthier.
Slip in the shower much? Then make sure to add this to your list. And even if you have never slipped in your lifetime, it’s best to be on the safe side. Remember, you want your non-slip mats to be antibacterial and mildew resistant. The rest, like the size, design and color, is up to you.
