A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place!

You might have the most expensive renovation ever or the most stylish bathroom and lavatory equipment, but still, it won’t help if the room is messy and unkempt. Having all paraphernalia neatly and logically stored in proper places is key to the first lock of the door to success!

Some ornate shelves on walls are also an extremely convenient method of organizing things, but only those matching your bathroom decor!

Advice: keep in mind that even cosmetic jars and bottles, towels, and bathrobes are puzzles in the big picture of your room’s interior! So, try to match & balance all the colors, shades, and shapes in your bathroom. If certain things are at odds with the interior, you don’t have to throw them away - just hide them in a drawer or pour the liquid into another bottle.

No Frills!

As bathrooms are usually small- or medium-sized, there shouldn’t be any useless space-consuming objects. Sure, it is you who decides what should be in your bathroom and what to throw away, but some things seem to be extra. Sometimes they cannot be easily removed or hidden. Sanitary objects – toilets, wash-basins, urinals, or bidets – are always connected to water supply and drainage systems with the help of piping but, the latter is not always hidden or is only partially recessed in walls. What an unsightly picture it is! Sure, you can’t cut the pipes and throw them away - you’d better think it over before the construction starts. The issue with pipes hanging or sticking out of walls is quite widespread that’s why there are some decisions to eliminate the problem in the bud. Contemporary contractors utilize the method of recessed installations – that is making special grooves in walls/floor, which accommodate all the pipes/hoses/etc. Grooving is really convenient, but it presumes to be confident in the highest quality of pipes and professional mounting.

What if you’ve got an issue with wires or cables? Say, a washing machine’s cable is dangling about the place posing a threat of electric shock in case of its damage... It is not only a matter of convenience - it is your safety!

Advice: there exist special protectors & bridges aimed to protect exposed wires from damage. If there is no way to hide certain wires, the cable bridges or protectors are a good way out – protection without sacrificing any flexibility!

What if your pipes aren’t hidden in grooves? What if your pipes are hidden in grooves or drywall, but supply valves aren’t? Not a problem, we’ve got some decisions for you:

  • paint the pipes to match your bathroom decor;
  • wrap unsightly pipes with hay rope or any other material of such kind;
  • use outlet boxes for valves recessed in walls to create a finished appearance.

Trifles make perfection!

Your bathroom style is not only the color of tiles or wallpaper – it’s in the details! The color of the walls doesn’t have to be the same still, it should "echo" with that of the floor, furniture, curtains, etc. But your faucets, showerheads, valves, etc. would better be of one style and color to create a feeling of congruence.

Advice: select matching hardware (shower, faucets, valves, hoses) – you may choose standard bronze, brass, or nickel or match white/black plastic. Doing this, don’t forget about tube hangers/straps and even shower drains. So, whenever you add colors to your interior, mind their integrity with the overall style.
