4 Top gadgets for a user-friendly bathroom
It may not be the first room you think of when it comes to quality time at home but your bathroom is the happening place for personal hygiene and grooming.
Here’s a few tips to amp up your user experience:
- LED lights are usually the best choice for your bathroom because the light bounces off the walls and mirrors. This provides brighter light without the large wattage.
- Avoid relying on overhead lighting for shaving and make-up. It casts shadows on your face that can distort your appearance and make it difficult to see what you are doing.
- Lighting that falls onto your face is the best for close-up work.
- For shaving and applying make-up, lights along the side of your mirror are the best. LED strip lighting can work a treat.
How about a heat, light & fan combo?
Heat, light and fan combos are a great option for bathrooms – especially in units where there often isn’t any ceiling space to accommodate an exhaust fan.
A great new product on the market is the Rapid Response by Fantech. It features a stylish, contemporary round or square design with the LED light positioned in the centre of the grille.
The light can be controlled separately to the fan and they come in a choice of black, white or silver to suit your décor. They are also relatively quick and easy to install and well worth considering.
You’ll need one of these anywhere that gets damp or steamy like your bathroom or in an internal laundry if you have a clothes drier. Internal powder rooms are another area that can be difficult to ventilate properly.
Fantech has a model designed especially for ventilating tricky areas. The ceiling-mounted exhaust fan draws fresh air from under the door cavity while stale air is removed.
There are lots of exhaust fan options available to suit your needs – including units with a light and exhaust fan in one. We can help you choose the right exhaust fan for your bathroom, powder room or laundry.
We also replace existing fans when they break down or become noisy. It’s usually a simple process. So if your exhaust fan has seen better days, contact us on 0418 442 578 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Heated Towel Rails
Don’t forget your towels – there’s something comforting about stepping out of a hot shower and wrapping up in a warm towel.
These days, heated towel rails are very economical to run. Some models are safe to install in or near your shower, so you can grab your towel before you begin to drip dry.
They come in a range of sizes to suit most bathrooms – even compact ones. We can help you find a perfect fit for your bathroom.
