It looks as if irrespective 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 very happy with how the room appears to be like and capabilities, and when speaking a few room that’s and will probably be used frequently by an individual in a wheelchair, perform is essential. However there are two fundamental issues that I want I might return and alter. One in every of them is basically an inexcusable oversight. However the different one was one thing that I couldn’t actually have recognized as a result of all of that is new to us.
Outlet(s) Behind The Center Cupboard
That is the “How might I’ve neglected that?” mistake that I want I might return and alter. Why on the planet did I not assume to place an outlet behind the middle cupboard on the vainness wall in order that we might maintain rechargeable objects hidden away within the drawers?
I’ve a number of issues that I’d like to maintain plugged in — a face cleaner factor, a purple gentle remedy factor for the face, a enamel whitener factor. I don’t assume I spotted what number of rechargeable objects I’ve till I really began shifting issues into the toilet.
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 for the reason that cupboard is beneath a window, there’s no simple technique to repair it. I don’t assume there’s any approach 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 dwell with the inconvenience earlier than I’ll go backwards on this rest room and should restore a wall.
The excellent news is that I don’t use these items day-after-day, and I believe I can discover a technique to maintain this stuff within the glass-front cupboard within the water closet. Since that cupboard has an outlet proper by it, and already has an extension twine operating into it for the LED lights, I believe I can plug issues in and maintain them charging in that cupboard, and possibly 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 onerous on myself with this as I’m on the outlet oversight for the reason that entire wheelchair-accessible bathe was model new to us, and we didn’t actually know what to anticipate.
At one level, I had thought-about having two showerheads on the identical wall for the reason that bathe is so massive.
I ended up altering my thoughts as a result of the entire level of getting such an enormous 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 at least one aspect 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 fundamental showerhead plus a handheld could be loads.
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 problem after I’m serving to Matt together with his bathe. Clearly, after I’m showering, one showerhead is loads. However after I’m serving to Matt together with his bathe, having three showerheads (one on every of the three partitions) would permit me to assist him, freely transfer round him, whereas at all times with the ability to maintain 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 aspect freezing.
It’s effective. 😀 It truly is. I’m keen to be somewhat chilly whereas he has a pleasant bathe. And the bathe could be very good. Truly, it’s been greater than good. It’s been life-changing for Matt. However I do want I might have recognized then what I do know now.
These are actually the one two issues that I’ve wished I might 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 an alternative of to Cooper’s fenced in yard. It’s a bit irritating for now having my massive canine observe grime and dirt by our new rest room. 😀 However that’s a short lived inconvenience that WILL be modified ultimately.
