There are aplenty of Singaporeans who consider renovation or remodelling every year. When we renovate or remodel, we do not prioritize our bathrooms. We only think of our living spaces like bedrooms, kitchens, study rooms and theatre rooms. That is understandable especially if we have limited resources. The bathroom will have to wait.
After renovating the essential spaces, it is time that we give attention to our bathrooms – it is after all a room. We still spend some of our time there. If it needs renovating or remodelling, we should seriously consider it. The good news is that there are many bathroom innovations that will excite Singaporeans.
Let us take a look at how we can upgrade our bathrooms:
- Keep it modern: We have to think that less is more. In bathrooms, we do not need the bulky plumbing and space-hogging toilet bowls. We have to keep it modern and that means less. The trick here is to choose things that do not take a lot of space. A seamless and sleek bathroom is a pleasant sight we would want to stay there longer.
- Do not be restricted: Here in Singapore, we are restricted by space or layout. We just take things as it is. We have to think outside the box and not be restricted by space. We have to reposition things like the door, toilet or the flush system. In other words, we have to rethink and re-evaluate the spatial alignment of our bathrooms.
- Save the curves: The bathroom is a place that we should relax and feel the tranquillity. We can do this by saving the curves. The curves actually make it sexier. Let us do away with rough edges and corners. Let us save the curves.
- Keep it open: Bathrooms of the future are free and open with clear glass, walls and door less entries. If we want to keep it at a minimum, we have to consider the open shower system. This will free up some space and it will make the bathroom feel larger.
We have to invest in our bathrooms especially if we have plans to sell our flats or apartments. If we do not plan to sell our property, we should at least fulfil our dream of upgrading our bathrooms. Yes, we will spend money but it doesn’t have to be that expensive. We can still find classy yet affordable things that can upgrade our bathrooms and make it look like bathrooms we find in boutique hotels.
