浴室の改装:改善点 Bathroom Remodel: Improvements


使いやすくなった! It became much easier to use.

前の浴槽:入り口に蛇口があり、狭くなって浴槽に入りにくかった。また、腰掛け部分が平らではなかったので、浴槽に入りにくいどころか足の短い私には深い浴槽から出るのが怖かった。Tub Before: It was tight around the tub entrance because of the faucet. Also, around the tub were rough textured tiles and the rim of the tub sitting on top of it created an uneven surface. So it made it uncomfortable to sit on, which made me scared to go in and out of the tub.

今の浴槽:蛇口を壁に取り付けたので、俄然入り口が広がった。また、浴槽周りもスムーズになった。これで深い浴槽でも怖くない。年寄りに優しい。Tub After: The entrance to the tub became much wider because we moved the faucet to the wall. The tub surround is now smooth dolomitic marble. I can sit on it now which makes it easier for elderly people to go in and out the tub.

前のシンク:ベイスンが小さいのに蛇口が大きかった。Sink Before: The basin was so tiny but the faucet was large.

今のシンク:ベイスンを巨大にした。Sink After: We installed the biggest sink available.

シャワー室のベンチ:カウンタートップと同じ素材(花崗岩と大理石の中間の石)にしたので柔らかい感触になった。今までの物置場所が、ちゃんとしたベンチになった。Bench in the shower room: Changed the surface from tile to the same material with counter top, dolomitic marble, so the surface is soft and smooth. I can sit on it now instead of using it as a shelf.

キャビネットの高さ:左に見えているのは私のキャビネットです。右に見えるキャビネットの壁はバンちゃんのです。彼は身長が186cmもありますが、私は150cmしかありません。だから私のキャビネットの高さをバックスプラッシュ分ほど(15cmぐらい)低くしてもらいました。この違いは朝晩の私の生活を100%向上してくれました。The Height of Cabinets: The cabinet on the left in the picture below is mine, and the one the right, showing just the dolomitic marble as a waterfall, is Banchan’s. My height is only 4’11”, but Banchan is 6’1″. So, I requested the cabinet height to be about 6 inches lower than his. This change made my life 100% better everyday.

この他キャビネット内も便利な作りになってますが、以上の点に比べたら瑣末でしょう。We made more improvements inside the cabinets but they are trivial compared to the other improvements I already mentioned above. So, this is it.

ただ、この全面に広がる景色はやっぱり最高です。外の景色を中に取り込むというアイディア、まさに成功です。Just that, the view spreading out like this is fantastic. My idea, to bring in the outside view, worked so well.
