Pampering ourselves is one of the best investments we can make for our health and wellbeing, and there is no better destination to go to for that pampering than your own home by upgrading your bathroom.
Add Custom Window Solutions
You want light and sun in your bathroom, but you also don’t want to worry about neighbours looking in. Having frosted glass can be a decent way to do this, but you shouldn’t have to deprive yourself of the great view just because you don’t want anyone to violate your privacy. A good alternative to this is with custom blinds from Westminster Blinds. These blinds work wonderfully, though you will need to be mindful of where they are located. If the window in question is in your shower, you may need uPVC shutters. If your window is elsewhere, for example, over the toilet, then roller blinds can be just the ticket to add privacy and design to your property. If you’re still not sure which type of window shutters to get, check out Plantation Shutters.
Ensure Your Bathroom is Properly Ventilated
You do not want your only ventilation option to be opening a window. This will cause a lot of damp and mildew in your bathroom and make it a very hostile place to be during the winters. Not only that, but opening your window (even in summer) invites pests into your bathroom that you simply do not want.
To avoid all of these issues, you will need to invest in a proper ventilation system. This can be an upgrade to an outdated fan you already have in your home, or it can be done by adding one entirely.
Upgrade the Shower and Bath
If you have to upgrade your space piece by piece, focus first on upgrading the shower, the bath, and then combo of the two. A new shower stall should have all the different settings, from side jets to a removable shower head to even a rainwater feature. These options can really make a big difference to your experience.
As for a bath, if you can, try to choose one that includes jets. These are the perfect spa addition to your bathroom and will allow you to be pampered whenever you need.
Fix Your Water
Many areas in the UK are hard-water. This means that it contains high levels of calcium and magnesium. These can damage hair, can cause mineral build-up and limescale, and can dry out your skin and irritate your eyes. Around 60% of people in the United Kingdom have hard water, but you can stop it. You will need a dedicated solution that works to get rid of the hard water at the source. This is more than just a water softener you can add to your shower; you’ll need professionals to come in to install the water filter that will catch or nullify the calcium and magnesium.
Upgrade the Design
Of course, if you want the full pampering experience, then you need to invest in a full redesign of your bathroom. From new tiles to a new sink and toilet, to even the artwork or wallpaper you use in the space, it can all improve the room. A beautiful bathroom is a luxury experience you deserve, so design it, shop around for quotes, and save up to give yourself this luxury treat right at home.
