Choosing the Right Vanity for your Bathroom

The vanity is not the most attractive part in reconditioning your bathroom but choosing the right one can make a difference. So knowing the way to select the right materials, size and style for your vanity that is suitable for your bathroom and will function for your needs is essential. Read and learn more of the following:

Placement

Find a good spot for your vanity that will not hinder the traffic flow in the bathroom, or obstruct the bathroom door or the door swing of the shower. Take note if the areas around are accessible for cleaning and if there is enough space for foot traffic if the vanity doors are open. Moreover, remember that the vanity has a lot to do with the bathroom’s function, and create a space around it for proper function.

Changing the plumbing around for the installation of a vanity can be very expensive. Placing the vanity at a distance from other bath fixtures is a higher cost for rough plumbing. Look for any plumbing services in Sydney to deal with plumbing issues.

Materials

A humid, wet and busy environment is the usual place for vanities and choosing the right materials for your vanity that can withstand this kind of environment is very important. Among the materials suitable for a durable vanity are laminates, wood veneers and thermofoil. Wood should be sealed and lacquered well but it doesn’t guarantee that it will not get any damage when exposed to water for a long time. Also consider the durability of your vanity top and opt to easy-to-clean grout.

Storage

In making a decision about the amount of storage you will need, consider the things you really use. Make an inventory of the things you store in your existing vanity and organize everything based on what you need to have in reach and you just need to have nearby. You may consider hanging vanities with drawers for a good amount of storage. In case you cannot change your tiny vanity cabinet, you may install additional cabinets that rest on the counters.

Size

Basically, the size of the vanity follows with size of your bathroom. At the same time, consider evaluating the lifestyle and things you demand for a vanity. This will give you a clear picture of how big your vanity should be. It is recommended to get started with a vanity that is at least 21 inches deep and 24 inches wide.

Choosing the Right Tile for Your Bathroom

Tiles can add value to a bathroom! And with their hygienic and water resistant properties, are a popular choice for any wet area. There are various unique finishes on offer that can’t be matched by other materials. Whether it is ceramic, porcelain, travertine or slate, bathrooms can accommodate all types of tiles.

Here are some tips to help you narrow down your choices and find out which is the right tile for your bathroom:

Hygiene

10836323064_8574f2c299_bWith their fresh appearance and easy wipe surfaces, tiles offer a great hygienic solution to a bathroom. While tiles are water-resistant, they are not totally waterproof. Before tiling, you can waterproof the shower area with a waterproofing kit to prevent any potential water damage to the walls behind the tiling. Also, if you opt for natural stone tiles for your bathroom, make sure that they are sealed with the recommended maintenance products prior to fixing to prevent water damage/staining.

Tile size for my bathroom

Typically, it is advised to avoid using large bathroom tiles such as 60x30cm in a small bathroom, as it will make the room significantly smaller. But if most of the tiles can be applied without any cuts, the result can be impressive.

With small tiles like 10x10cm, its several grout lines can sometimes look unattractive. For many people, medium sized tiles such as 40x20cm are a common choice for either large or small bathrooms today.

Using tiles to make a small bathroom look bigger

One way to make small bathrooms look bigger is to use light colored bathroom tiles such as white or cream. They reflect the light more as compared to darker colors, giving an airy and spacious feel to your bathroom. Another way is to use the same color wall tiles as the floor tiles.
When you’re shopping for tiles for your bathroom, try to visit a trustworthy plumbing shop in Australia. Check out the various choices and find out which one suits your bathroom. However, you might also need professional plumbing services when installing tiles for your bathroom.

Why? Well, because if we cannot help them because it’s too late, then we will be able to help ourselves because we are able to take note of the things that they should have done but they did not do when they had the chance because of certain reasons like ignorance, pride and panic.

Sometimes it’s different and sometimes it’s our property and everyday life is at stake because of these complications brought about by storms.

The most common issues with stormwater are under sizing of the system, Sydney experiences heavy rainfall at times and so we recommend having a stormwater system that is adequately sized to be able to cope with this demand. Build up of debris that has not been cleared is also another problem, as well as broken or damaged pipes from ground movement, tree roots, crushed from heavy machinery or vehicles driving over them. Another problem is dry ground due to lack of moisture in the ground that can lead to pipes cracking. This will result in more damage due to local tree roots searching for moisture in the pipes.

So, if you need a stormwater Sydney plumber, then we will always be here to help. We will help you determine the issues on your property. Please do not hesitate to call us when you need anything, or book a job immediately and we will be more than happy to be of service.
