But wait a minute, not all renovations have to be costly. Sure they are if you gut the room and start from scratch but sometimes a few little fixes can make the room look like a million bucks. Well start at the sink. Sinks themselves dont have to be a big ticket item and with all of the different vessels out there now to choose from you could go from a basic sink in the counter idea to a new look, beautiful glass or ceramic bowl that sits atop.
Cork is made from bark and is great for the environment and a highly renewable resource. Additionally, it is water, mould and mildew resistant, making it a great fit for bathrooms. Installation however can be tricky and is best left to a professional. Bamboo is eco-friendly and a highly sustainable resource and available at a fraction of the cost of hardwood floors. Engineered bamboo is a smarter choice than solid bamboo because the planks are perfectly suited for wet environments such as bathrooms and are extremely durable.
Ceramic tiles are a preferred choice as they require minimal maintenance, but may not be as comfortable for the underfoot, which can easily be overcome by installing radiant floor heat. You can opt for mosaic tiles, which arrive in pre-mounted plastic mesh sheets, and eradicate the need to individually install them. Ceramic tiles can be slippery, but texturing helps and smaller tiles tend to be less slippery owing to the fact that more grout is used, which provides a skid free surface.
In some parts of the world we see toilets that allow us to crouch over them, squat if you will with some people saying that this is the best and most effective way to do our business. Squat toilets are becoming more popular in North America now as people realize that you dont have to strain so much and the squat is actually better than sitting in order to get the job done.
