It looks like regardless of how a lot planning goes right into a room, there are at all times adjustments that I’d make in hindsight. Our grasp rest room is not any completely different.
Total, I’m more than happy with how the room seems and capabilities, and when speaking a couple of room that’s and will probably be used recurrently by an individual in a wheelchair, operate is essential. However there are two most important issues that I want I may return and alter. One in all them is absolutely an inexcusable oversight. However the different one was one thing that I couldn’t actually have identified as a result of all of that is new to us.
Outlet(s) Behind The Center Cupboard
That is the “How may I’ve neglected that?” mistake that I want I may return and alter. Why on the earth did I not assume to place an outlet behind the middle cupboard on the vainness wall in order that we may hold rechargeable gadgets hidden away within the drawers?
I’ve a number of issues that I’d like to hold plugged in — a face cleaner factor, a pink gentle remedy factor for the face, a enamel whitener factor. I don’t assume I spotted what number of rechargeable gadgets I’ve till I really began shifting issues into the lavatory.
I might say that my oversight of an outlet behind the cupboard is THE largest and most irritating mistake that I made on this rest room, and because the cupboard is beneath a window, there’s no straightforward approach to repair it. I don’t assume there’s any method in any respect to repair it in any respect with out messing up a wall beneath one of many vanities, and that’s not going to occur. I’ll reside with the inconvenience earlier than I’ll go backwards on this rest room and must restore a wall.
The excellent news is that I don’t use these items each day, and I believe I can discover a approach to hold these things within the glass-front cupboard within the water closet. Since that cupboard has an outlet proper by it, and already has an extension wire operating into it for the LED lights, I believe I can plug issues in and hold them charging in that cupboard, and perhaps put them in a basket in order that they’re not too seen. There’s at all times an answer. 🙂
And the second factor I’d change in hindsight…
I’m not fairly as laborious on myself with this as I’m on the outlet oversight because the complete wheelchair-accessible bathe was model new to us, and we didn’t actually know what to anticipate.
At one level, I had thought of having two showerheads on the identical wall because the bathe is so large.
I ended up altering my thoughts as a result of the entire level of getting such a giant bathe is in order that Matt can freely transfer round in his wheelchair within the bathe. Having two bathe heads on the identical wall would imply that he could be shoved over to 1 facet or the opposite, and that appeared to defeat the aim of getting such a big bathe for him. And it appeared to me that having a most important showerhead plus a handheld could be a lot.
However now that we’ve been utilizing the bathe, I want I had gone not with two showerheads, however with three. And I wouldn’t put all of them on the identical wall, however I might put one on every of the three partitions within the curtained off bathe space.
It’s solely a difficulty once I’m serving to Matt along with his bathe. Clearly, once I’m showering, one showerhead is a lot. However once I’m serving to Matt along with his bathe, having three showerheads (one on every of the three partitions) would enable me to assist him, freely transfer round him, whereas at all times having the ability to hold heat beneath a stream of water. As it’s now, Matt will get all the nice and cozy water (sure, he needs the showerhead and the hand held each pointing at him to maintain heat 😀 ) whereas I’m over to the facet freezing.
It’s high quality. 😀 It truly is. I’m prepared to be just a little chilly whereas he has a pleasant bathe. And the bathe could be very good. Really, it’s been greater than good. It’s been life-changing for Matt. However I do want I might have identified then what I do know now.
These are actually the one two issues that I’ve wished I may change. However total, I completely love our new rest room. I do sit up for the day that it doesn’t have an exterior door, although. I can’t wait till that door results in our new bed room as a substitute of to Cooper’s fenced in yard. It’s a bit irritating for now having my large canine observe grime and dust via our new rest room. 😀 However that’s a brief inconvenience that WILL be modified ultimately.
