Do Not Panic When It Comes To Darkness. Do This 3 Steps, From Now On Say Goodbye To Black, Damp, Stink!
Most people have experienced the pain of choosing when buying a house, right? For their favorite house type, they have a high price. The price is right for the house, but they are not good house type. For the right price and good type of house, its location is too remote. In the end, under the limitation of budget, you can only choose the relatively satisfactory house. But this will inevitably have a small regret, such as “dark bathroom”.
The most distressing thing about the dark bathroom is just that: no light, no ventilation, humidity, so the transformation of the dark bathroom should start from these points.
# “Steal light” or “make light” to make the dark bathroom bright #
The solution to the problem of lighting is generally divided into two kinds: one is to cut the wall to steal light. Since there is no light, we will tear down the wall to create a light source. One is to create something out of nothing. When the wall can not be removed (i.e., the former option is not feasible), we have to use light to forcibly create a light source.
1, Cut the wall to steal light
If the light is obstructed by the partition wall, then cutting the wall and adding windows or installing frosted glass doors can achieve the light, that is, to introduce light into the space.
Chiseling the practice of stealing light can only be used for non-load-bearing walls. Load-bearing walls can not be smashed.
2, Make something out of nothing
When the wall can not be removed (that is, when the previous option is not feasible), we can use light to create light sources.
For example, place lamps around the mirror. We have all seen the kind of mirror with its own lighting on the back. This kind of lighting would be more reasonable. The reflection through the wall allows a soft light to be seen, increasing the illumination of the face.
In addition, the dark bathroom can also be designed with multiple local light sources and partitioned installation. This can realize the mutual cooperation of positive and negative light sources, and enhance the brightness while not lacking the sense of hierarchy.
# Ventilation equipment to make the dark bathroom no longer smells #
The unpleasant odor in a dark bathroom is a real headache. The dark bathroom that can be transformed by cutting the wall can be ventilated through the window, but what should be done in the dark bathroom without a wall to cut?
1, the installation of exhaust fans is currently the most common way. Even in the open bathroom, the placement of exhaust fans is indispensable.
Exhaust fans are broadly divided into three types: top-absorbing, wall-mounted, window-mounted. I recommend using the top-absorbing type, because it has the highest value and no restrictions on installation conditions, so it is the most popular. Note that when installing the exhaust fan, be sure to install a non-return valve. Otherwise, although the smell of your own dark bathroom is drained out, others’ smell is backed up again.
2, inhibit internal odor. Internal stink often comes from the floor drain and toilet. This problem cannot be solved by exhausting more power. We have to get to the root of the problem.
For example, check whether the floor drain is clogged or check whether the water storage bend is dry and other phenomena. For example, whether the toilet is easy to hang dirt because of the poor quality of the glaze, and then whether the toilet seal flange is well installed or whether there is aging phenomenon, etc.
# Reasonable design, humidity refusal #
The dark bathroom is not ventilated, and long-term humidity, so it is easy to appear water seepage leading to wall dampness and other problems.
1, Wet and dry separation
The ” dry” in the wet and dry separation refers to the sink, and “wet” refers to the bathroom. Wet and dry separation is to separate the bathroom and sink. If you want to reduce the moisture in the bathroom, we must control the area of the wet area, therefore, wet and dry separation is essential.
2, Try to waterproof the walls all the way to the roof
In general, the waterproofing of the walls of the shower area will be painted to a height of 1.8m. For the dark bathroom, I recommend that the waterproofing of the walls will be painted all the way to the roof.
3, Drainage should be fast
If you want to quickly increase the drainage speed of the bathroom, you can start from two aspects: increase the slope of the drainage slope, and select a fast drainage not easy to plug the floor drain. When doing the water drainage slope, in the area from the edge of the corner to the floor drain, it is necessary to ensure that the height of the slope drops 1 cm per 1 meter. The slope of the drainage slope can be increased a little bit to drain quickly in the dark bathroom.
The above are some suggestions for improving the dark bathroom, have you learned?
