A dressing room is dream of many people. Nowadays, many living rooms have a bathroom design in master bedroom. Therefore, many owners turn bathroom in master bedroom into a walk-in closet. Let's take a look at wardrobe change precautions in master bedroom bathroom!
Bathrooms are usually waterproofed, but if sewer pipes are to be blocked if they are converted into a dressing room, original waterproof layer will be destroyed during project, so waterproofing must be done again and dressing room waterproofing requirements will be met. much higher than in bathroom. The bathroom is guaranteed to keep water out to impact upper and lower occupants, and wardrobe even avoids moisture as much as possible. Several coats of waterproof paint can be applied, especially if tenants upstairs agree to a closed water test to avoid problems in future.
Most bathrooms in master bedroom are hidden bathrooms, so an exhaust fan should be installed in bathroom prior to renovation to keep air circulating, wick away moisture and reduce chance of mold on clothing.
Install ceiling and play with keel
As a cushion, it is best to raise ground and put wooden keels under it, and leave a distance of about 10 cm between cabinet and ceiling in modified dressing room. Although we will make a soundproof and moisture-proof layer on top, it is necessary to leave a certain space to prevent exposure to moisture to wardrobe.
Wooden cabinets are easily deformed from moisture, so it is best to choose wear-resistant boards and polymer panels for wardrobe door panels, and use anti-corrosion metal as support legs at bottom of cabinet.
When changing wardrobe, it is necessary to deodorize drains and drains in floor of original bathroom. The floor drain should be sealed, but not sealed. Use a sealing cap with mold-resistant neutral silica gel to close it, which is convenient for future maintenance.
Many people ignore noise problem in bathroom. When we think about it, we usually hear sound of a toilet flushing or sound of running water. Wouldn't it be a bit annoying to hear that sound after it's been turned into a dressing room? Therefore, when finishing, pipes should be covered with soundproof materials, and pipes should be hidden in a cabinet so that sound can be greatly reduced.
