A bathroom or washroom generally is a room, usually in a residence or other commercial structure, which features either a shower or an indoor/outdoor bath. The addition of a washing basin to this room is quite common nowadays. However, it should not be considered as something that is just there to add value to the property, but rather, as part of the overall bathroom suite. In this article we will discuss the various types of bathroom suites and what wash basins can do for them.
When considering what to include in your bathroom, the main items to consider are the toilet and the sink. There are many different combinations possible when considering what to include in either one of these rooms. Let’s take a look at some examples below:
The basic 4-piece suite consisting of the sink, toilet and vanity unit can be a great option if you have a smaller bathroom area to work with. The main advantage with this type of bathroom set up is that all the items are relatively easy to access and are situated in such a way that they do not take up valuable floor space. All the plumbing is concealed in the wall behind the toilet and vanity units. This type of set up also provides the most practical and versatile solution when looking at adding a toilet and sink.
In a situation where you might not have the right amount of space available for installing an additional bathroom item, you could always opt for a bidet toilet. A bidet is basically a sink that can be attached to the wall. It is typically longer than a sink and usually has a built-in shelf where you can store cleaning products. They typically offer two sinks, one for the toilet and the other for the lavatory.
Installing a double bath or shower is one way to make small bathrooms look bigger. If you have a larger bathroom area and you feel that it might help to make it more spacious, then you should consider installing a double sink. A double bath can be used as a sitting area, a place to wash hands and a relaxing shower if desired. In some cases, installing a double bath can actually help to increase your bathroom remodel cost since it means you will need to add a second sink to the set up. However, a double bath will provide more value to your home than a single sink and is a much more functional solution for larger bathrooms.
Another alternative to having an expensive remodeling project include putting in more luxurious fixtures. Bathroom fixtures can range from a simple showerhead that will only shower the person in the room to a more lavish bathroom with jetted waterfalls and highly styled bathtubs. If you want to keep it simple then you can choose a simple fixture and this option will still give you much more functionality than a fancy shower. Whichever route you choose for your bathroom remodel costs, remember that it is an important investment that you are making and will provide you many years of pleasure.
