If you're in the process of designing a new bathroom for your home, don't forget about the extra amenities that will set it apart from all the rest. One of the great things about designing a new bathroom is that you can add all those things that will make the space more enjoyable to use. Here are several amenities you need to add to your new bathroom.
Separate Tub and Shower
If you've decided on a traditional shower/bathtub combination for your new bathroom, you might want to reconsider. There are a number of reasons why you should opt to separate your shower and bathtub. Two of the biggest reasons have to do with comfort and ease-of-use. First, a frameless shower allows you to walk in without the worry of tripping over the frame. Second, when you choose a stand-alone shower, you can install a whirlpool tub, as well.
If you've decided to go with basic fixtures, it's time to think about an upgrade, especially where your faucets and toilet are concerned. For your faucets, choose hands-free models to allow you to control the flow without the need to touch the faucets. Hands-free faucets are easier to use and will reduce the spread of germs. Where your toilet is concerned, you want to choose one that has a few perks. First, choose a toilet with push-button flush. That way, you don't have to deal with the bulky tank-installed handle. Second, choose a low-flow model so that you can save water each time you flush. Finally, choose a toilet with an automatic lid. That way, you won't have to worry about surprises in the middle of the night.
If your bathroom has a beautiful view of the yard, talk to your contractor about adding a garden window to your new bathroom. Garden windows bring more natural light into your bathroom. Not only that, but a garden window will allow you to relax in your tub while enjoying the view to the outdoors. No more feeling boxed in while you soak in your tub.
If you live in a region that experiences cold, winter nights, you'll want to invest in heated floors for your new bathroom, especially if you've chosen tile for the flooring material. The floor can be extremely cold on your feet during the winter months. Heated floors will keep your feet nice and warm, even during the coldest winter temperatures.
