The 4-Step Guide For A Bathroom For All Seasons

pexels-photo-105934.jpg


When most people design a bathroom, they very rarely consider how the changes in the seasons will affect the design and practicality of the space. However, it is super important that you do try and design a bathroom for all seasons when you decide to remodel or update yours. Here are some ideas that you should try and incorporate to help your bathroom sing no matter what time of year it is!


Consider The Windows


Windows are incredibly important in any bathroom, but you need to make sure you install some that are ideal for both winter and summer. For instance, tilt and turn double glazed windows are particularly good. The double glazing will keep the bathroom well insulated during the window so that you don’t have to shower in the cold. You can then tilt the windows slightly to let out steam. Thankfully, they won’t be wide open, so you don’t have to worry about a cold breeze. Then, in the height of summer, you can turn the windows all the way to allow as much air as possible into the room.


Add A Bidet


They might not be the most fashionable of items, but it’s worth getting Benjamin Franklin plumbing to come and install a bidet into your bathroom. These will come in especially useful once the weather turns cold and your family gets hit by all manner of bugs and viruses. Using a bidet is a lot more hygienic compared to using just toilet paper, and it can greatly help you cut down the chance of germs and bacteria spreading around the house.

Go For Neutral Decor


When you smarten up and redecorate your bathroom in the summer months, you might be a bit taken with all the nice weather and decide to add some bright and flowery decor to your bathroom. But you need to think about how this could look in the darker and colder months - it could be quite overbearing. So, it’s a good idea to stick to a neutral decor so that it suits the bathroom all year around. Remember to add plenty of lighting fixtures and mirrors so that the room always feels light and airy even on dark winter days.


Add Some Smart Tech


Why not add some smart tech to your bathroom? It’s great all year round, especially during the winter! Smart heaters can be turned on and off using your phone, so you can make sure your bathroom is nice and warm once you get home on a cold winter’s evening. It also means you can turn off the heating if you are out and the temperatures start to get higher than expected. Another nice little addition to a modern bathroom is a demisting mirror. This allows you to leave the windows closed during winter while you are showering as you don’t have to worry about the mirror fogging over from all the steam!

Once you design a bathroom for all seasons, you will find that you will get a whole lot more out of it!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
