The bathroom is often overlooked when it comes to décor and maintenance, and most people aren’t likely to list it as their favourite room in the house. But think about it: the bathroom is where we clean ourselves, get ready for the day, and it’s normally one of the only truly private spots in a busy household. On average, we spend at least 30 minutes per day in the bathroom, so why do we overlook it? Instead, why not make easy updates that will impact the quality of the restroom experience?
Here are some quick, easy, and budget–friendly tips to upgrade your bathroom:
Drain hair catcher: Discovering a clogged shower drain is irritating, to say the least. The most efficient solution to prevent a clog from developing is to buy a drain hair catcher for your bathtub or standing shower. They’re quick and easy to clean up, and you won’t have to spend extra money on harsh drain cleaning chemicals that can be harmful to your pipes.
Of course, if you do find yourself suddenly dealing with a clogged drain, we can help guide you through that, too.
Plants: For a luxurious shower experience, add fresh eucalyptus leaves around your showerhead. The steam from the shower will activate and release eucalyptus oil compounds into the air while you shower. This spa-like experience will not only clear up your sinuses, but it will also help you relax, reduce muscle pain, and help with overall respiratory health.
Showerhead: There’s no reason to suffer through the experience of a showerhead with low or limited water pressure. Grime and build-up can be the culprits affecting the water pressure from your shower, but you may simply discover that the time to replace the showerhead has arrived. You can find high quality showerheads at just about any budget!
Bidet: Bidets have been around for a long time and are commonly used in many parts of the world, but they’re only just beginning to become popular in North America.
If you want to jump on this trend while remaining budget-friendly, you can purchase a bidet attachment for your existing toilet. After you’ve set your bidet to the perfect water temperature and pressure, we’re sure you’ll never want to go back!
