Everyone who lives in a well-appointed apartment, sooner or later will make repairs to the bathroom and toilet, photos of which then, perhaps, will be a source of pride. However, in order for it to happen just like that, you need to make the right choice of material for finishing these premises and make repairs in compliance with the requirements stipulated by construction regulations.
Requirements for materials for wet rooms
Bathroom and toilet in any apartment are the concentration of a large number of utilities related to water and sanitation. For this reason, any repair in such areas must meet the challenge of hiding these ugly, but so necessary elements from human gaze.
The constant use of water creates a humid “tropical” climate in the bathroom and toilet. This circumstance forces the use of repair work only those materials that are not afraid of a periodic increase in air temperature and increased humidity. It is important not only moisture resistance itself, but also requires that the material does not allow fungi, bacteria and mold, which like the humidity.
In most older homes, where it is primarily necessary to carry out repairs to the bathroom and toilet (the photo confirms this), the rooms have a very small area. For this reason, the type of finishes and materials chosen should not further aggravate this situation. Increased humidity, among other things, can cause a short circuit in the electrical wiring. Therefore, materials should not easily ignite or emit toxic substances when melting.
