Increasingly, people are trying to make their homes a safe and comfortable place like a cocoon. The em-ergence of these new trends has led to a greater share of housing in bathrooms and bathrooms. Toilets and bathrooms have been less of a concern for homeowners in terms of interior or lighting. But things have changed these days. There are two reasons for this.
The first is that the safety of toilets and bathrooms has become very important. Because it is known that many people are injured by slipping in the bathroom and bathroom. In particular, as the aging society b-egan, the elderly were injured by slipping and falling in the streets and houses.
It is a reality that many people who fall and fall injured their pelvis or leg are killed. The interior and lig-hting of toilets and bathrooms are no longer just a dimension of beauty, but a dictator of life. In this sit-uation, more and more cases of remodeling the interior and lighting of the restroom and bathroom.
What is the best value for the interior and lighting of restroom and bathrooms? It is, of course, the safet-y of the person using it. In particular, restroom and bathrooms are places where moisture and moisture may increase on the floor and walls. So remove this moisture and moisture to prevent slipping.
◆ 'Dry bathroom' is safer
There are two types of restroom and bathrooms. One is a wet toilet and a bathroom. This is literally the way the floor is wet. Another way is dry restroom and bathrooms. Drying means creating restroom and bathrooms that are dry on the floor.
In terms of 'safety', the recommended type of restroom and bathroom is, of course, dry. Drying is the cr-eation of restroom and bathrooms that do not dry on the floor. For example, we can see dry restroom a-nd bathrooms in European or American homes.
Dry restroom and bathrooms are typically finished with natural wood or granite, separate the bathroom from the restroom, and install a bathtub in the bathroom. However, dry restroom and bathrooms are still unfamiliar in some asian country. Therefore, there is a nee-d for wisdom to improve safety by modifyin-g existing wet toilets and bathrooms.
First of all, the floor mat is made of non-slip synthetic resin to enhance the safety of users. In particular, anti-slip mats should be placed in front of the sink, in front of the toilet, and inside and outside the batht-ub. A better way than using these mats is to replace the floor with a non-slip finish.
◆ Use a light fixture with moisture and water resistance
Next is lighting. For lighting fixtures in the bathroom or bathroom, it is recommended to use a lighting f-ixture of IP67 or higher that resists moisture well. In addition, it is preferable to use an LED lighting d-evice having a long life and good light conversion efficiency, since the bathroom and the bathroom are places where the lighting device is frequently turned on or off. It is also necessary to install LED lightin-g fixtures on the mirrors in front of the vanity so that the face c-an be seen clearly.
Restroom and bathrooms are no longer 'a space for avoidance'. Therefore, more and more people want t-o produce more beautiful space. But the most important thing in toilets and bathrooms is safety. Pursui-ng beauty after securing “safety” is the right approach to the interior and lighting of restroom and bathr-ooms.
