” There must be quite a few things that a hot bath will not cure, but I do not know many of them.” -Sylvia Plath
To many of us, the bathroom is a place of ultimate comfort. It is that one place in our homes wherein we can relax after a long day and just let go of our stress and worries. In our bathrooms, we are afforded a unique kind of privacy that is not found anywhere else in the home, and with that, we indulge ourselves in the form of a hot soothing shower or pander our penchant for hot bubble baths. For this reason, it was assigned its most apt moniker yet, the comfort room. Today, comfort rooms are no longer regarded as simple and straightforward rooms intended for bathing and cleaning ourselves; rather they have transformed into places paramount to our relaxation. In this regard, our bathrooms should have the semblance of a sanctuary–an optimal environment not only for getting ready to face the day but for a soothing soak as well.
Inevitably, part of your day is going to be spent in the bathroom so you might as well create an ambiance that is not only satisfactorily comforting but one that actually encourages you to spend time in it insomuch that it could become a favorite time of yours in your daily routine. So, if you find yourself dreading morning showers or evening baths, you might want to attribute that to the poor condition or subpar layout of your bathroom. If any of these signs are present in your unit in Avida Towers Cebu or elsewhere, it might be time for a bathroom upgrade or total bath overhaul:
1.) The layout does not make any sense
Do you wonder why the door gets soaked every single time you take a shower? Is the sink placed way too close to the toilet? Are there features that made you wonder why they are set the way that they are? If any of these pertain to your comfort room, it might be that the plan was substandard from the get-go insomuch that you have a resulting illogical layout. While you can choose to bear the burden of a speciously designed bathroom, at some point in your life, it is going to be inconvenient. After a while, taking a shower will feel like a chore if you have to wipe the door routinely and soon enough, what was once a minor inconvenience would now be considered a major annoyance in your daily routine. If you cannot live with a badly planned bathroom, it is time to renovate it.
2.) Storage space is inadequate
Of course, having enough storage is always a pivotal aspect when it comes to choosing a place to live in. Unfortunately, most homeowners are of the erroneous belief that the same sentiment should be applied in creating their bathrooms. Sure, it might not be the first on your list when it comes to having enough storage space in, but if you are dealing with a bathroom that has virtually no storage of any kind then finding a place for your toiletries is going to be a nightmare. You cannot reasonably expect to keep all of your bathroom essentials on the floor at all times and at some point, stacking your towels on the back of the toilet would no longer cut it. Sure, you can hoard as many bathroom caddies you wish in order to store everything you need, but eventually, they would crowd your bathroom and make it feel cluttered and stifled. In lieu of purchasing innumerable caddies, take this chance to upgrade the storage space in your bathroom.
3.) The space no longer feels enough
Over time, your family will grow and what was once considered a charming little bath would now become a cramped area with all of your families’ bathroom essentials. Incidentally, this once cozy place would now feel like a warzone wherein everyone would constantly be fighting for their turn just to use it. Sharing your bathroom with just one other person can already feel like someone is impinging on your private space. Now, imagine sharing one bathroom with your entire family–it does not exactly paint a pretty picture, does it? Apart from affording everyone their own private space, having an extra bathroom would significantly reduce the time needed to get everyone ready and out of the door. Plus, it mitigates the likelihood of any of your family members falling behind their morning schedules.
4.) You are thinking of selling your property in the future
A bathroom remodel is one of the prized features most prospective homeowners would look for. Apart from guaranteeing a boost in your asking price, having an upgraded bathroom can also contribute to a faster sale. So, if selling your home is in your plans, you might want to consider renovating and improving that bathroom today.
