There are many considerations you need to make when deciding to renovate your bathroom, and these can often be overbearing and confusing. We thought we would give you a guide on the first things you should think about before starting your project.
You might be thinking that a big bathtub and his and hers sinks would be ideal, but is there actually enough room for that? The bigger the better is not always the case when it comes to bathrooms. Careful planning and to-scale visualisations will help you to be realistic about what your bathroom can cater to and you can use this as a foundation for the design of the room.
Set yourself a budget and try to stick to it. Not only will this help you to stop spending too much money on your project, but it will also narrow down your choices. Use your budget to guide you, as it will be more of a help than a hindrance. With figures in mind, you can decide how much renovating you want to do and how is best to create your ideal bathroom.
Remember it’s not easy to change the colour of your bathroom so your best bet is to opt for neutral colours and choose accessories of different shades. This will make your job easier later down the line if you do want to change the colour scheme. The smaller the room, the lighter the colour scheme should be – giving the appearance of a bigger space.
Tiles, hardwood or laminate flooring are probably the best for a bathroom as they can be cleaned easily if there are any spillages. Use the design and furnishings to help you determine the colour and material of the flooring as everything needs to match!
There is no point in having a perfect looking bathroom if nothing works properly. Ensuring everything has been fitted correctly is essential and will save you a lot of money down the line. Try to work out how all your furnishings will work and whether your plan is viable, and seek professional help should you need it.
