The Essentials Every Bathroom Condo Must Have


People living in a condo in the Philippines have increased over the past years. This increase is due, in most part, on at least three million people in the country coming from the provinces who work or study in the metropolis. These people usually opt to live in a condo to save on travel expenses and to make things convenient for them, when traveling to and from their homes to their destinations.

The popularity of condominium living raises the pressing concern of caring for every part of the unit that may be purchased or rented. It is not just a matter of giving extra care only on the particular areas of your condo, let’s say your living room and bedroom. Special care must also be given to other areas of your condo that you may not consider as particularly significant—for instance, your bathroom.

Your condo bathroom is a place where you can retreat and seek refuge after a long and exhausting day. Because of this, your bathroom becomes a significant part of your condo, even if you are thinking of it as ‘just another room’. Making sure your condo bathroom has all the necessary and interesting essentials contributes largely, given the appropriate care and maintenance.

Avoid confusion with color-coded towel tags

Most of the time, you may find yourself storing many towels for yourself and your loved ones in your condo bathroom, most of which are identical in color and design. Color code your towels with hanging loops so your family and guests can distinguish the white towels that belong to them.

To avoid confusion for hygienic purposes, make the hanging loops stand out in color to get the attention of your loved ones living with you in your condo. As much as possible, use distinguishing colors that are the favorites of your loved ones to create special meanings for them and your future guests.

Take a bath or a shower your way

In order to have an energy efficient home design in the condo bathroom, install a shower stall with an accompanying bathtub. You can save water energy by having one single system where water flows for both your shower and bathtub. Increased bills in water energy no longer becomes a problem with the utilization of this water energy saving method.

A small bathroom powder room does the trick

A mini bathroom/powder room comes in handy, especially to your lady guests, during condo parties. Make sure powder essentials such as lotion, perfume, and of course, powder, are readily accessible in this room for your guests’ convenience.

Pedestal sinks for the little ones
