Fancy a Change?
One of the most popular reasons people visit Alistair Thorpe and heating for remodelling a bathroom is due to a change in circumstances within the family. Young families with children tend to rework their bathrooms to accommodate the newer additions to their family, adding more storage space and usually a larger bath if they donb t already have one. Along with new families, a new bathroom maybe beneficial to an elderly homeowner with reduced mobility who may find it difficult to get in and out of the bath, they might benefit more from a walk-in bath or shower.
Is It Functional?
Although the aesthetics of your bathroom are important, the functionality must always come first. These sorts of issues usually arise from the decisions of the previous owner, however, your thoughts and circumstances may be completely different from the previous owners. Instead of putting up with them why not do something about them? You would be surprised at some of the dysfunctional bathrooms that are out there, especially in smaller homes.
If your bathroom hasnb t been touched for a few years, it may just need a bit of a facelift. Styles and tastes can change at a rapid rate, sometimes a room can benefit from a little revamp. You donb t have to stand for that bright flowery wallpaper the previous owners left you with, itb s time to make your own mark on the room. Small changes such as little fixtures, the wallpaper or even the shower curtain can make a huge difference to your bathroom.
Is the Lighting Right?
When getting ready in the morning the last thing you want is poor lighting to make things even more difficult. The lighting in a bathroom is crucial, it can be as simple as adding a couple of new fixtures such as an LED/Hollywood Mirror or as extravagant as installing a skylight. Your bathroom should always be a bright and well-lit space but should be dimmable allowing you to create different moods depending on the time of day, and who is using the bathroom; after all your bathroom should be a relaxing place where you can unwind after a long stressful day.
