Bathroom Design

February 5th, 2013

Top Mistakes In Bathroom Design DIY Enthusiasts Make All Too Often

Bathroom Design appears so easy. Just make a vision of what you want in the remodeled bathroom, draw the details on paper, and then execute the design. Easy-peasy, lemon squeezy. But remodeling a bathroom is not exactly for amateurs unless the planned revisions involve minor changes like changing the soft furnishings (i.e., curtains and mats) and adding wall hangings for the various odds and ends. You must contact the professionals when major changes are involved lest you become a victim to the following DIY mistakes.

Bathroom Design Mistake #1: Improper Installation

Think of it: The bathroom is the most dangerous area of the entire house. This is because putting every possible hazard – water and electricity, slippery surfaces and hard corners, and breakables – are crammed into the smallest area in relation to the other rooms. In fact, 70 percent of all house accidents happen here!

When your bathroom design plans overlook a single aspect of safety, you are putting yourself and your household members at high risk for accidents in the bathroom. Think of the possibilities: The electrical outlets can be placed near the water source, thus, increasing the risks of electrocution. The improperly-mounted shower door and bathroom mirror can easily break. The plumbing system can spring leaks that will weaken your home’s foundation. Indeed, there is a reason why professionals are well-versed in Singapore’s stringent building codes – the safety and security of families and individuals living in the condos, apartments and hotels are at stake even with the simplest bathroom renovation.

Bathroom Design Mistake #2: Improper Water Conservation Measures

Singapore is well-known for its expertise in water management from its generation to its conservation. The city-state has, in fact, used such expertise in the so-called water diplomacy. It then makes sense that water conservation in homes is a significant concern among homeowners, contractors and designers. Bathrooms must be designed in such a way as to promote water conservation, which professionals are trained to do.

This cannot be said of many DIY enthusiasts whose idea of water conservation may be limited to taking a shower instead of a bath in the tub. In contrast, professionals know many ways to conserve water including auto-shutoff faucets, low-flow showerheads, and high-efficiency water.

Indeed, why make these bathroom design mistakes when you can call in the professionals and save yourself time, effort and money?
