Do you know you’re ready for a new bathroom installation but think it’s going to be a big hassle? It doesn’t have to be! All you need to do is plan thoroughly and consider the different factors that could affect the design of your bathroom. Below, we’ve outlined some key things you need to think about before committing to your dream bathroom.
This is the point where you want to be gathering thoughts and ideas and creating a vision of what your new bathroom will look like. You’ll want to think about the aesthetics of your new bathroom installation. Will it be ultra-modern or are you opting for something more traditional? Are you going for neutral shades or aiming for a pop of colour? Once you’ve asked yourself these kinds of questions, you’ll begin to get an idea of what your bathroom design will be.
Planning Your New Bathroom
The next stage is to start looking at the logistics of your new bathroom installation. Firstly you want to assess what you need – for example, do you want a combined bath and shower or separate units? It’s worth bearing in mind that it might be easier (and cheaper) to stick with the layout you already have in place.
Thinking about Space
It’s also important to think realistically about the space you have. Does your vision maximise the space available? You might have a dream bathroom in mind but if you have a small space to work with, it’s no good cramming loads of fittings in and leaving no room for anyone to stand! Also, if the layout of your bathroom isn’t currently using the space well, then it might be a good idea to think about changing it up.
Using Your Bathroom
As well as considering your available space, it’s also important to ask yourself if your design will fit the intended use. An en-suite bathroom is very different from a family bathroom! An important factor here will be storage – you might need a lot more space for kids’ toiletries, and you might want to keep certain things out of arms reach in your family bathroom.
