How to Plan the Perfect Bathroom

If you are thinking of remodelling an old bathroom or planning a new bathroom here are some things to consider doing to help the whole process stay stress free, on track and in budget.

1

Set a Budget

Set a Budget

Decide how much you can afford to spend in total, including labour costs and stick to it. A good bathroom supplier will have a range of bathroom fixture and fittings to suit all budgets and a good bathroom designer will help you achieve the look you are after within your budget.

Take Lots of Measurements

Take Lots of Measurements

There is no point having your heart set on a standalone bath in the middle of the room, if it will be a squeeze walk around it. Measure your bathroom and try and draw a plan of it, with the position of any windows, pipe-work and door marked. This will give you a good idea of floor space and wall height that is available.

Gather Style Ideas

Gather Style Ideas

Bathrooms come in a huge range of different styles from traditional to more modern sleek designs. It helps if you can narrow down the look that you are hoping to achieve. Magazines about home decor are great for giving you ideas and Pinterest is great for creating an online scrap book of bathrooms and fixture and fittings that you like.

Heating and ventilation

Heating and ventilation

Heated towel rails are a very popular way of heating a bathroom as well as the towels. If the bathroom is especially large it may be worth adding an additional form of heating e.g. under floor heating. For ventilation, an extractor fan must be fitted in all new bathrooms in order to meet current building regulations. Without good ventilation your new bathroom could become damp and mouldy which could have serious effects on your health.

Find a Good Bathroom Installation Company

Find a Good Bathroom Installation Company

In our opinion this is the most important thing to get right. A good bathroom installation company will have years of experience so will be able to help you make the right decisions when it comes to designing the layout of your bathroom. They will know what works and what doesn’t and will often consider things that you haven’t. As well as that they will be able to turn your design ideas into reality. A well installed bathroom will always look better, and will stand the test of time much better than one which has been fitted hastily by inexperienced fitters.
