The Toilet Zone
- You’ve sat on one, you’ve sat on them all? Not so, says Jeannie. “Many adults are trading out their lower toilets for comfort height, which is like sitting on a chair… they’re easier for adults, but hard for children to reach.”
- For a sleeker toilet than the old standard, consider a one-piece toilet or a behind the wall system.
- It’s OK, and necessary, to vent. Beyond the obvious bathroom benefits, proper and modern ventilation is less noisy, relatively inexpensive (less than $100 to $200 for ceiling mounted fans, the more expensive are equipped with heater, light and night light) and can eliminate the mold and mildew that wreak havoc on remodeling and design.
Want minimalist furniture? Try a custom closet …
- “If the master closet is off of the bathroom, people can basically customize it to where they only need their bed and a couple of nightstands.” Designer closets require more space than traditional closets, but they are also space savers with designer shelves and drawers for storing all clothes, shoes, belts and jewelry.
Redesigning a bathroom is less of a daunting task with the right team, concludes Jeannie. “If you get the right contractor, ideally one who is doing the work himself, and you have your plans drawn up, it should be a positive experience adding comfort and value to your home.”
