temperature and flow.
Dixon noted that her company’s Retrofit shower, with exposed piping, lets you change out the whole shower if need be without breaking the wall. “It just fits right onto the existing plumbing,” she said.
8. COOPERATE AND CLEAN
It might help to schedule bathroom times, and every person using the bathroom should learn to clear the drain and change the toilet roll, says Leslie Josel, author of “What’s the Deal with Teens and Time Management.”
“If the family gets into a few basic habits like this, the whole experience will be easier for everyone,” she says.
9. SET THE MOOD
Consider colors, materials, flooring and lighting that might spruce up the room. “These are a really low-cost way to redo a bathroom. Just pay attention to décor as you would any other room in the house,” Dixon said. “Soft celadon, creamy yellow or pure white with colorful accents give the bathroom more of a spa feel.”
10. ADD LITTLE LUXURIES
Small touches like warming towel racks, and plush, high-quality towels and bath mats can add a lot to a bathroom, says Dixon.
“Also consider candles and nice lotions and hand wash. And flowers accentuate any room in the house,” she says. “Little luxuries can completely change the feel of a bathroom, and everyone in the family will enjoy them.”
