So its been a while since there was an update to the current Status of my Bathroom. yes im still living with 50% usable bathroom. but now it finally starts to come together now that I found a guy that could design my Dream bathroom because how often will you have the chance to completely destroy an old bathroom and rebuild it to current Wellness Standards. The new concept has been drawn out by this new architect . I thought it to be best to share my progressions and also see inside tips maybe that some of you have here while im still in the Design phase. once we start breaking things it will be too late and the way things look now the rebuilding will start around August 2009 most rebuilders here are booked fully till after the summer holidays so I rather dont stress it anymore and design a perfect working relaxing centre. So let us begin with contemplating the new Design what is important for me might not be important for you or you might have an idea that I havent thought of yet more minds are better then one. Toilet: To start with the interior I wanted to do like the Japanese who think a toilet shouldnt be in the view or inside a bathroom specially not when you take a long bath. so in this new design I took out the toilet and will build it outside the bathroom in a corner thats kinda dead space but there is room to have it inside so maybe think about the cons and pro's for this. The toilet will have a Japanes system build on top of a normal toilet computerised water jets clean you up. and offcourse normal Toilet paper still available. a ventilation system that runs 10m longer after you turned off the light is included. No sink in toiletroom why would you ? walking to the bathroom is next door. or should we go for handwash mini sink ? Pro's ? Cons ? Sink: I was thinking a Dual Sink system I would have my own , future sale of the house would appeal to a big family buying the house since it has a dual sink kids fight for bathroom time no need 2 people can brush teeth now. does this really work ? id like to hear from members who have 2 sinks in their bathroom or would you rather go for 1 big sink ? or 1 sink and more counter space ? like in this design choose for a 100cm wide or even 90cm wide sink and a nice cabinet to store all the aftershave and colognes in ? Pro's ? Cons ? Mirrors: The mirros are custom designed to specs. build in mirror heating so you can shave right away after stepping out of the hot shower. Since we decided to go for custom cut instead of designer mirrors the mirrors will be installed at same level as the wall Tiles and will seem as if one with the wall. for lightening we will use SPOTS Pro's ? Cons ? Shower: Rainfall system from the Ceiling gives the whole bathroom a bigger perspective . a small handshower next to the rainfall system. either a 18cm head or 20cm head no bigger or else id have to replace the waterboiler all together . No Glide Bar to attach the small shower head ? To Turn on the cold /water ratio has been build not under the showerhead but a bit side so you can still reach it with your hand but it doesnt get wet less cleaning up to do and no residue buildup of water on it. again id like to hear from people how their experience is with a rainfall system versus normal small showerheads they had on a glide bar before Pro's ? Cons ? Drain: Quickdrain or easydrain system which is installed into the floor this makes choosing for floor tiles easy any size doesnt matter now. Pro's ? Cons ? Lights: Halogen Spots with a Dimmer will be installed. Pro's ? Cons ? Music 2 wireless Speakers waterproofed for bathroom use. uses a Sender/receiver system. the sender device will be hooked up to my AV amplifier of the cinema setup. I will then have internet radio, Cd music, Mp3 music in the bathroom via the wireless speaker system. Aquasound and Sonos are 2 systems I looked at ? anyone have a music system in their bathroom ? how many watts ? you choose for wireless system or Wired with the cables hooking up to next room thru the wall onto your stereo set ? Pro's ? Cons ? Jacuzzi whirlpool system uses Airjets and Waterjets. combination possible to use either system together or solo for a longer stay in the bath without getting too tired. no color light show . size 180*80cm. probably no Faucet from the wall the overfill drain system will be functioning as a water filler aswell a system I was adviced by the designer excists a dual system so saving to install a seperate water pipe anyone with any regrets after they went from a normal bath to a Jacuzzi system ? Pro's ? Cons ? Ventilation Special low noise ventilation unit ontop of the attic that runs 24/7 to keep the bathroom dry to keep fungus out and save the sanitair kit and general crap from building up. 3 settings 24/7 low and when you take a hot shower you can crank it up. Floor Heating : heating installed in bathroom and toilet. this will clean the shower area quicker and save cleaning a bit residue water buildup cant be happening due to water vaporates. sanitair kit stays longer good. maybe dual system run some CV hotwater pipes thru the new floor so in Winter the floor is heated by CV aswell as little by Electric heating and in summer Electric heating takes over fully ? Pro's ? Cons ? Design Radiator ? not taken into account yet with this design. which I think we need to heat up the towels or put somesort of a Towel heater /hanger system in the bathroom. Tiles and Wall theme ? Id like to have a Japanese theme or feeling to the whole bathroom if possible so we might end up doing a fancy White Wall with blackfloor and real Black Wood carved into edges to accentuate certain accessories. Extra Service the builder offers is building 2-3 powersockets into the Sink cabinets /drawers so you can plug in your electric razor ? uh ? :shocked003 or hairdryer ... I dont use either system but could be handy ? Pro's ? Cons ? So here are the layouts sofar...and Golden Tips will be taken into consideration.
