We have always considered the bathroom to be a place to get clean and relax after a long day. More and more homeowners, however, are looking to remodel this particular area of the home with health and wellness in mind. The concept of a “spa” is no longer just a luxury but something that can be incorporated into bathroom design.
In this blog, local custom home builder Sadler Building Corporation shares some of the considerations to keep in mind when designing a healthy bathroom.
Take Advantage of Technology
Technological innovations play a vital role in bathroom design, emphasizing improved access, ease of use and healthy living. Take toilets, for instance; these are equipped with features such as heated seats, hands-free flushing and even self-cleaning systems. The presence of alternative and improved control of systems and the increase in the number and types of tools that speak to the senses add to the bathroom’s spa-like vibe.
Install an Exhaust Fan
Moisture build-up inside your bathroom creates a potential for mold growth. Avoiding this is possible with the exhaust fan. Ideally, it is hardwired into the switch to operate at all times and cannot be turned off. However, it can also come equipped with moisture or motion settings. Whatever your choice, the exhaust fan is worth adding to your bathroom remodeling plans.
Never Forget Lighting
Just like every other room in your home, the source and color temperature of your lighting is critical to promoting a healthy bathroom. As you begin and end your day here, the lighting should be warm enough to prevent the increase of stress levels. Of course, don’t discount sunlight; a well-placed window must let adequate natural light into your bathroom.
