Sharing the bathroom can lead to disaster, especially for those living in tiny Detroit area apartments. There are many conflicts that occur simply because more than one person needs to use the throne at the same time. This is why the bathroom has been labeled the most important room in a house. There are a variety of solutions for helping with this conundrum. This guide supplies the best tips for sharing the throne in the Detroit area.

Shorten shower time with proper heating and cooling

Advance Plumbing and Heating

1977 E. West Maple Road
Walled Laked, MI 48390
(248) 669-7474

Hours: Mon to Fri- 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sat- 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Having the proper heating and cooling systems installed will shorten shower length and the amount of time spent drying and dressing, but it doesn’t mean you have to shell out a hefty chunk of change on heated towel racks or tile floors. People become apprehensive when they know they will be stepping from a hot shower into a cold bathroom, especially in Detroit’s frosty winter months. Place a small space heater in the bathroom during the colder months and a fan in the warmer months to provide the proper heating and cooling in the bathroom. This can also be accomplished by adding an extra adjustable vent in the bathroom. At Advanced Plumbing and Heating, professionals can help renovate any bathroom in the Detroit area to ensure adjustable heating and cooling.

Better lighting hastens vanity affairs

Universal Plumbing Supply

14511 W. Eleven Mile Road
Oak Park, MI 48237
(248) 542-2663

Hours: Mon to Fri- 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sat- 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The majority of bathroom time is used on tasks that need great lighting. From makeup to flossing, having a bright and direct light surrounding the bathroom mirror will quicken each task. Bathroom light fixtures can be both effective and beautiful, but not all light fixtures will work for all bathrooms.  For a huge variety and easy installation of bathroom light fixtures, go to Universal Plumbing Supply, serving all of the Detroit area for over 30 years.

Adequate counter space avoids clutter and accidents

KSI Kitchen and Bath

Ann Arbor, MI 48103
(734) 769-7669

Hours: Mon to Sat- 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Open Late Thurs until 7 p.m.)

There is nothing more frustrating than not having enough room in which to “work” in the bathroom. Clutter builds up, especially around the sink, and reaching for the comb lands the toothbrush in the toilet. To avoid this, it is important to have all the counter space needed to organize the tools of the trade. There is no place better to go in the Detroit area for counter top and storage needs than to KSI. The company specializes in cabinets and counters for any bathroom.

Personalized totes for each person provides a personalize bathroom experience

Nu Way Kitchen and Batch

Utica, MI 48317

Enjoying the throne in a personalized way is difficult when everyone’s personal supplies are everywhere. It can be quite upsetting when looking for the boy scented soap and finding only girl scented soap. That is why sharing the throne also requires personalizing it. Custom totes and shower caddies of all sorts are offered at Nu Way. Buy one for each bathroom user and make a personalized experience possible.

Ensuring privacy and time frames keeps conflict to a minimum

Atlas Plumbing Supply

Detroit, MI 48207
(313) 579-2700

Hours: Mon to Fri- 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sat- 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

It is time to relax for a long bath and someone barges in without warning, demanding to use the bathroom. These sorts of bathroom conflicts cannot always be avoided, but there are ways to lessen them. Set a timeframe for the bathroom, especially for bathing and showering. Find a small “do not disturb” sign and always lock the door. It is hard to keep track of time in the bathroom. But if you just don’t want to and appreciate a good, long steam, try a steam generator. Find the latest steam generator with adjustable time settings at Atlas Plumbing Supply. There you will find all your bathroom needs with the latest technology to revolutionize the restroom experience.
