Any parent or grandparent will gladly tell you, life with kids is different than any other time in your life. For households completing a bathroom renovation project, these four surprising ideas can help add organization and functionality.
Electric Outlets in Surprising Spaces: Tired of a countertop full of clutter? Consider adding electric outlets inside drawers and medicine cabinets. This is great for hair dryers, electric razors, electric toothbrushes, and anything else that would usually get in the way on the countertop. Best of all, it keeps these items out of sight and out of mind in case unexpected company drops by.
Slide Out Stool: Parents of younger childrenknow that reaching the sink can be tough for the littles. Thus, a slide out stool from the cabinet kick plate can help. Most cabinet companies are able to do this for a relatively inexpensive cost and it keeps you from tripping over a kiddie stool in the middle of the night.
Motion Sensor Lights: Speaking of middle of the night trips and younger children, consider putting the bathroom light on a motion sensor. This way, younger children who cannot reach the light switch aren’t stuck in the dark. Plus, if you have a household that is notorious for leaving lights on, a motion sensor can help you save on your lighting bill.
Dimmer Switch: Ever gotten up in the middle of the night, turned the bathroom light on, and it was so bright that you were instantly awake and unable to go back to sleep? With a dimmer switch, lights can stay at a functional level while avoiding hurting your eyes.
While these bathroom renovation ideas are certainly surprising, most general contractors and electricians can complete them with no problem.
