How Builders Repair Bathroom Problems

Category : Blog

Bathroom Problems create hassle for any homeowner. The best way to solve these issues is to call for builders in Calgary. However, if you suffer from bathroom problems at a time when a builder isn’t available or at a time when you are on a budget, there are things you can do yourself to address the concerns.

Here are some of the problem areas you might be experiencing in your bathrooms and how you can fix them:

  1. Storage Space

Bathrooms have a very limited space. This is why storage spaces in the room are limited, too. If you can’t yet afford to pay Calgary builders for the construction of storage spaces, the best way for you to add some storage to your bathroom is to buy some fixtures. Instead of buying wide storage fittings, opt for vertical ones. Narrow but tall storage fixtures can save space but at the same time hold more bath items. You can use wall fittings to store your bathroom needs.

  1. Lighting

The right lighting can make a small bathroom look more spacious. If you want uniform lighting in your lavatory, add a sconce near vanities. If there’s a mirror in the bathroom, strategically place the lighting fixture on top or on the sides to avoid shadows. If you want a brighter light in the shower, you can place some fittings there as well. In this case, you must employ the help of an electrician to correctly place the wires.

  1. Towels

Calgary can be very cold. Warm towels could be a delight during the winter. You need to have a towel rack that warms it while hanging. Towel warmers and cabinets costs less than $200. You need an electrician to have these fixtures installed, however. Never try to DIY electrical wires or you might end up having rebuilt the entire home instead of just redecorating your bathroom.

  1. Regulated Floor Temperature

The city experiences very cold winter. Sometimes, stepping on a frozen floor can be very daunting. Therefore, if you want to have a regulated floor temperature, have a radiant floor heating system. This demands rebuilding so builders are necessary to be hired. If you don’t have the budget for this for now, go the cheaper route by buying fluffy rugs for winter so you don’t have to deal with cold floors. Just make sure to regularly change them as wet rugs could be breeding ground for bacteria.

  1. Dirty Clothes

Is the rest of your family throwing used clothes on the bathroom floor? Have a laundry cabinet in the room. You can easily buy this at stores.

  1. Bathroom seats

Sometimes you might need a seat when shaving. The seat can be helpful too if a family member is recuperating from an injury. You can buy a foldable stool if you don’t want to hire builders to install the bathroom fixture. Foldable seats are space savers. You can unfold them if need be and stack them away under the bathroom sink if not used.

These bathroom issues can easily be solved. On the other hand, if you really want a better-looking bathroom with all the amenities you need, you can always look for builders in Calgary to do the job for you.
