The bathroom serves many purposes in the house, although it is usually the smallest room,
it should be one of the most functional.
What helps you start your day in the morning and quietly end it at night.
Over time, bathrooms age with age, however, their function declines.
We believe that every bathroom has untapped potential to better meet the needs of the family.
Here are some ways to do that.
More than 60% of homeowners prefer a shower over a traditional bathtub.
And given that the bathroom gives you five square feet more usable space than a bathtub,
it’s no wonder.
But the good news is that you don’t have to completely remodel your bathroom to take advantage of this functional improvement.
A simple conversion from bathtub to shower can be quick and easy.
Older people and those with limited mobility tend to find this upgrade particularly useful with a lower sill shower base.
The latest trends in smart bathroom products can also be within reach,
making them even more effective.
And while this optimization isn’t likely to be good for you,
partnering with an experienced professional can make installation as seamless as it is functional.
Observe safety tools
Adding grab bars to your new or existing bathroom goes a long way toward making your bathroom more functional and welcoming.
Slips and falls are quite dangerous, and family members young and old will benefit from this small but powerful security measure.
These are not the cold, sterile grab bars of previous generations.
The modern grab bars are beautiful in their own right,
and perfectly complement the aesthetic of your bathroom.
Recent data shows that portable bathrooms are appreciated by homebuyers,
and can increase the value of your home more than almost any other upgrade.
Lighting the way
Upgrading light fixtures in your bathroom is often overlooked,
but it’s a powerful way to make a room more functional.
Poorly lit bathrooms feel small and cold, and they can make everyday chores like makeup and hygiene take longer.
Installing new lighting from a pendant or sconce will make the space appear larger and more inviting.
It will help reduce the amount of time you spend on normal tasks.
There is a seemingly endless variety of lighting fixture designs,
which means upgrading your lighting can be as beautiful as it is functional.
Not only is the new lighting widget one of the most rewarding improvements you can immediately make, it’s among the most affordable.
Installing a small charm instantly improves storage capacity and ease of use in your bathroom.
By keeping towels, toiletries, and all other daily necessities organized and tidy,
your bathroom looks spacious and tidy.
If access is difficult for your space, add easy-to-access storage space.
And if you’re deep closets force you to constantly search for the products you need.
Or if shallow drawers are causing things to get lost, it’s time to rethink your storage needs.
With a highly functional space that takes your personal needs into account.
Whether its deep drawers, wide baskets, small containers or narrow shelves,
your storage solutions should make your life easier.
This provides quick and easy access to the items you use every day.
Cleaning your bathroom isn’t the most pleasant chore in the house.
If there’s one room in your house that really needs a good weekly cleaning, it’s the bathroom.
Flying, broken or cracked tiles and moldy grout lines might not make your job any easier.
Once mold is present in shower walls or around the bathtub, it can be nearly impossible to get rid of.
So the modern bathtub and shower has been designed with your comfort in mind.
Using grout-free, non-porous and completely waterproof patterns that resist mold and moisture.
Put a mirror on the wall
Mirrors are essential for a bathroom, but that doesn’t mean they’re boring.
Gone are the frameless squares hanging over the sink, and today’s mirrors are beautiful and smart.
Get creative with shapes, frames and styles to suit your design aesthetic,
then add a touch of modern intelligence in the form of anti-fog technology,
smart touch capabilities, charging stations and even backlighting for true functionality and style.
If you want to catch up on the local news before you leave for work,
and if it’s for something other than checking road conditions and traffic delays.
But your time is short and your hair is wet from the shower,
so modern technology lets you catch up on the news on a flat screen mounted to the bathroom wall – water-safe – while you’re done getting ready for the day.
Mirrored medicine cabinets are a very practical dual-purpose solution for keeping bathroom essentials close at hand,
but out of sight for the smallest members of your family.
Not only do these mirror/cabinet fixtures add beauty and depth to your bathroom,
but they provide plenty of extra storage where you need it most.
A variety of styles means there is a model that complements any aesthetic.
Adding new towel and shower bag hooks is a simple, affordable,
and totally functional upgrade to your bathroom’s look.
Modern bathroom designs continue to blend aesthetics with practicality,
and these easy-to-use accessories are no exception.
A variety of materials, colors and finishes can make the final product impressive,
even for the most discerning homeowner.
When it comes to fully functional bathroom upgrades, towel hooks can be hard to beat.
Just having a place to hang wet towels, rather than having them piled on the floor or hung from doorways,
can instantly change the way your bathroom feels day in and day out.
And making your bathroom more functional should be as fun as it is practical.
