One small room, one giant leap
We will all be excited when friends and family can finally come over to visit, but if your cloakroom isn’t up to scratch, now is the time to get ready for what will be a new way of life. Hands before homes.
From antibacterial hand-wash to gel sanitizer, our hands have never been cleaner. While restrictions may have eased, our attitude to hand hygiene has likely been changed for good. Bubbles have been created, but what happens when restrictions are lifted, and all of our friends and relatives can finally come over?
It’s impractical to stay at home forever and for many of us, it simply isn’t possible. So we will naturally shift focus to how we reduce risk. And let’s not forget, it’s not just guests that will need to be vigilant. It is just as important for all of us to remember to wash our hands, the moment we return home.
Cloakrooms aid cleanliness
Having a cloakroom near the front door is fast becoming a priority. We’ve always known that washing our hands is the best defence in preventing the spread of any bacteria or virus. But most of us would never have considered the importance of making sure we do so before entering any property. Life has changed for good and whether it’s your best friend, the carpet fitter or your evening book group, everyone who steps into your home is likely to feel more comfortable being able to wash their hands first.
With so many people washing hands, the downstairs loo will be under more scrutiny than ever before. For most of us, installing or redesigning the cloakroom is a task that has previously dropped to the bottom of the list. Right now is the best time to give your loo a facelift and it’s money wisely spent. Whilst hand hygiene is an immediate priority, looking to the future involves not just protecting ourselves, but the value of our property.
Redesign the loo
If you are thinking of moving house any time soon, you can be certain that a top-notch downstairs washbasin and vanity cabinet will be on the priority list for anyone looking for a new property. With all of this time at home, most of us are realising the importance of spending wisely and investing in the future. The downstairs cloakroom will fast become one of the most important investments in any property.
If you want to do one thing that will make you feel more confident about the future. To prepare for those certain visits from relatives and friends all keen to get together. Then redesigning the downstairs loo is a great place to start.
