What About A Bathroom Without Windows? How Can I Better Renovate A Windowless Bathroom?
The bathroom is an essential and functional area.
However, due to the reason of house planning or area limitation
Many bathrooms do not have windows.
Ventilation, lighting has a big problem.
For example, for some dark bathrooms without windows, it is a combination of stuffy, dark, wet, smelly and other difficult problems. So, since the type of household problems can not be changed,
Ventilation in the bathroom is the most important issue. Because there is no fresh air, and can not produce displacement and convection with the dirty air inside, it is easy to breed more bacteria, resulting in a smelly and damp bathroom. Air problems simply can not be improved. Generally, people will install exhaust fans. It works together with the ventilation pipe to expel the waste and then let the fresh air from outside in. Currently, there are three types of home exhaust fans on the market: ceiling-mounted, wall-mounted and window-mounted.
- Ceiling type: better appearance. It can be installed on the ceiling of the bathroom. This exhaust fan has a shorter pipe, so you also need to buy a matching ventilation pipe.
- Wall-mounted: Smaller in size. It can be set above the wall. However, because of its weak air extraction, it is only suitable for installation and uses in bathrooms with smaller areas.
- Window type: It is different from the first two. It has a two-way operation. It can both exhaust the indoor air and replenish the fresh outdoor air into the room, so the window-type ventilation is more effective.
However, the air volume of the exhaust fan is very small. It can only achieve local ventilation, and the time limit is short. If the air problem in your bathroom is serious, you should install a better fresh air system to provide fresh air for your home continuously, so as to achieve the real sense of air circulation. You can also open the window without changing the load-bearing premise.
Ventilation using bath bombs: Some integrated bath bombs now also have a ventilation function, especially some big brands in the design have this aspect in mind. Its disadvantage is that the exhaust air of the bath bar is not the main function. Efficiency is slightly lower.
First: the location of the light source must be well zoned. In general, the bathroom light source must not be less than three: respectively, the shower area, toilet area, wash area. These three main areas are the main areas of human activity. If the three compartments are placed side by side, you can also install two lights: a light source for the vanity mirror; toilet and shower area share a light source.
Using a large mirror + mirror front light to supplement the light source is a very practical approach. One, you can hit an even light and ensure that every dark corner can be filled with light. Two, it is also convenient to brush your teeth and wash up. This maximizes the shortcomings of the lack of light to make up for.
Second: the choice of bathroom light color. Generally speaking, the light transmission of the windowless bathroom is not very good. This is a higher requirement for lighting. In fact, the main thing is the color light of the light source. There should be a windowless bathroom with a cool color light source. Cold light is the most suitable for the zone of dark light. This can be able to enhance the contrast, and the view is brighter.
The windowless bathroom has almost no light surface, so the decoration should pay attention to the choice of color. Generally speaking, white is the best. On the one hand, it is better to match the white and bathroom products, and on the other hand, white can reflect light very well. This will look brighter bathroom.
As for the white match, first of all, the tiles can be white. I suggest choosing the one with stripes, which can expand the reflection interval. Secondly, you can use white for daily necessities in the bathroom, such as dressing counters and towels. The overall effect is also more refreshing.
Together with the transparent glass partition design, all can solve this problem well and visually improve the shortcomings of the lack of light.
When renovating a bathroom, whether it’s installing basic sewer pipes, toilets, sinks or faucets, it’s important to conduct meticulous tests and inspections to prevent water leakage. This can cause problems for daily use.
In order to eliminate water leakage problems as much as possible, we must apply waterproofing materials and then perform the necessary closed water test. In addition, try to buy high-quality floor drains, plumbing and hardware, which can also ensure the comfort and cleanliness of the bathroom.
Of course, if you usually clean diligently, timely wipe the countertop water and stains, and then use the heating and ventilation function of the bath to exclude moisture, I believe that your family’s healthy home must be dry and clean, refreshing.
Fully enclosed bathroom, the most likely to cause odor dispersion problems. If the bathroom at home is comparable to a “public toilet”, it will be a kind of experience?
In fact, to do the waterproof, ventilation, ventilation these points, deodorization problem can basically be solved. But at the beginning of the renovation can not ignore the point. It is the use of a U-shaped sewer pipe to form a water seal to eliminate the source of odor from the source.
The floor drain is an important interface connecting the drainage pipe system to the indoor floor. As an important part of the drainage system in a residence, its performance directly affects the quality of indoor air. It is very important for odor control in the bathroom.
This floor drain that is popular now has a large drainage opening. Its drainage speed is ten times faster than ordinary floor drains. It not only acts as a water stopper, but also makes the downward flow of water faster.
Due to the small space in the bathroom and limited ventilation, it is not suitable to place too strong a smell of fragrance. The scent here should be light and sweet fruit, floral and marine scents.
In addition, after going to the toilet, cover tight toilet flush in time. This is a good habit to avoid the accumulation of floor drain debris, etc. These can play a role in isolating the odor to a certain extent.
Wet And Dry Separation
Nowadays, new houses usually have the necessary separation of wet and dry. You can use glass or other partitions to let the dry area and wet area away. This can be used to exclude a series of hidden dangers in the process.
For a small house, the problem that many people worry about is the lack of area, thus not being able to do wet and dry partitions. Look at the planning area of each of our functional areas in the picture above, in fact, it is possible to make a shower room with 5 square meters in the bathroom.
For the partition of a small house, glass is preferred. This saves space and supplements the light source. And the transparent glass not only can have the effect of visual expansion, but it also makes the space look clean and clear.
In the past, old houses did not have the function of “wet and dry”, so they were mostly separated by a simple shower curtain. This practice is of course better than nothing. However, this not only can not effectively isolate the moisture but also easy to breed bacteria, moisture, odor are inevitable.
The bathroom is small, but it is the most visible area of the level of housing decoration.
Especially for small families, if you are not serious when decorating, it will definitely bring hidden dangers to future life.
