Matters needing attention in bathroom decoration

Six points for attention in bathroom construction

1. Threshold

The threshold is a checkpoint to prevent water from overflowing from the bathroom. Its design and construction points are as follows:

1) The upper surface of the door sill should be inclined to the inside of the bathroom so that the water drops can slide smoothly to the inside of the bathroom;

2) The threshold should be the same width as the door frame, and the thickness of the door frame should be the same as the wall thickness, so that there will be no big ins and outs when laying floor tiles, and the chance of cracks is relatively reduced.

2. Ground waterproof

There are many kinds of waterproof materials, and currently the most commonly used is waterproofing agent. When laying the waterproof layer, it should be about 20 cm above the foot of the wall, at least not lower than the height of the threshold. When there are reserved pipes on the floor, the waterproof layer also needs to cover the reserved pipes. After the floor is waterproof and dry, cement mortar or protective measures must be used immediately to prevent damage to the waterproof layer.

3. Floor tiles laying

There are three essentials for laying floor tiles:

1) There must be a slope of about one percent of the drain, with the slope facing the floor drain;

2) The joints of floor tiles should be of the same thickness and should be aligned with the joints of wall tiles;

3) When the front wall of the bathtub is made of bricks and tiles, it is best to place the floor tiles under the wall first, and then attach the wall tiles to avoid cracks.

4. Washbasin

Washing countertops should be "whole body" (that is, the surface material of the countertop is consistent with the internal material composition and color). It is not possible to choose a countertop with only one surface rubber shell, because the countertop with only the surface rubber shell cannot be repaired once damaged. (To check whether the countertop is "full-body", light can be used to illuminate it from the back at a close distance, and the "full-body" countertop is the one that can transmit light). In addition, a caulking agent must be applied to the joint between the countertop and the washbasin to prevent water from leaking out of the joint.

5. Toilet

Generally, when installing the toilet, it is customary to use cement mortar to fix the toilet. In fact, this method is wrong. After fixing the toilet with this method, the toilet cannot be disassembled again. If the pipeline is severely blocked, only knock it off. The toilet is a way.

6.Exhaust fan

Generally, when people build houses, they don’t pay much attention to bathroom ventilation equipment. Most of them just install an exhaust fan. The bad gas in the bathroom cannot be exhausted to the outside, but only circulates in the bathroom.

As an important functional area in home life, the bathroom is naturally more thoughtful in the decoration. In order to create a comfortable and warm bathroom space, you must know the following points.
