Yes, say hi to enclosed shower areas, which is not a new idea anymore in our modern day Singapore, but yet, most of the homeowners here still haven't embraced the idea completely especially those who have an old HDB bathroom at home. Now, let's talk about why your bathroom is better to have a wet and dry area separated area.
1. Cost saving for your bathroom remodeling
Wet areas should have a tile finished, which is common sense. But when you have an enclosed shower area, you have more options to do the flooring of your bathroom without sticking to the expensive tiles. A vinyl flooring for your dry area is a cheaper alternative way to go instead of full tiling. You can simply choose the same flooring option as your pathway or a particular one just for your bathroom dry area.
2. Better visual aesthetics
An enclosed shower area makes your bathroom more flexible on a layout plan, even if the space is small. You can easily plan a customized cabinetry to store your toiletries in the rest of the space. Also some home decor items can be placed in your bathroom for visual aesthetics without worrying about them being destroyed by water.
3. Hygiene maintenance for your bathroom
It's easier to clean your enclosed shower area when you don't have to splash water all over the entire bathroom. Simply focus on the wet area, which is possibly the best place for bacterial and fungal growth. Save some money from your water bill by cleaning your dry area in regular way. Vacuuming always sounds easier than scrubbing the whole bathroom that's stained by water marks.
Enjoy a fresh sense of dryness when you step out from your shower cubicle, step into your bathroom to wash your hands when your feet are still in your socks, put your toilet paper rolls in a chic basket and place it on the floor just next to your wc. Or, brush your teeth while your sexy loved one is taking a shower just beside you without getting splashed.
