4 components every bathroom should have

Remodelling the bathroom—you’ve been thinking about this project for ages and now the work is finally starting. Whether you have to deal with an existing plumbing system or you’re starting from scratch, help from a plumber is sure to be really welcome.

The components of any bathroom

The first stage of the project is to determine which components you want your bathroom to contain. Choosing bathroom plumbing can be a nightmare for those who don’t like making decisions. If you’re in need of some inspiration or don’t know which way to turn, take the time to visit some retail showrooms or specialized stores, or ask your plumber about the best solutions for your space and budget. You’re sure to get lots of good ideas for different layouts.

  1. Bathtubs

A freestanding, therapeutic, or corner bath, a bath with feet, a drop-in bath, or tub shower: there’s certainly no lack of choice. Before purchasing a new tub, check the solidity of the floor, as you may have to reinforce the joists under the new bath. Built-in baths always look attractive, unless, of course, you opt for a bath with feet. Baths made of acrylic are a good choice, as the water tends to cool more slowly.

  1. Showers

Your options are also plentiful where showers are concerned: corner, rectangular, glass, ceramic, walk-in, to name a few. Although it may prove to be a more complex job, the addition of a separate shower is a wise choice, as much for the practical aspect as for the added value to your property. Whatever type of shower you choose, it is important to insulate the bathroom plumbing pipes in order to limit heat loss, especially if they’re in an outside wall.

  1. Sinks

The possibilities are endless when it comes to bathroom sinks. Pedestal sinks, which take up less room, should be fixed securely to the wall, as the only purpose of the pedestal is to hide water pipes and not to serve as support. At the moment, basin vanities are extremely popular, as they have more storage possibilities and have some very practical counter space for all your grooming paraphernalia. In this case, it’s the vanity that must be fixed to the wall. Double basins are also increasingly popular in master bathrooms; they’re great for getting through the morning rush hour without a hitch.

  1. Toilets

Choice in toilets has increased a lot in recent years, especially where height and water savings are concerned. For more privacy, think about building a low wall to separate the toilet from the rest of the bathroom.

With a good plan and the help of a plumber, you’ll be able to make all the right choices for your bathroom plumbing and create your very own dream bathroom!
