Social media is full to the brim of interesting and unique-looking bathroom ideas that are designed to inspire us and push our creative flare.
It’s important that you’re happy with your bathroom as it’s a place where you can relax and be yourself. So, when you’re planning your new bathroom, there are a few things to consider.
How To Plan A Bathroom Design
Renovating your bathroom is an exciting project. There are lots of amazing and quirky designs out there, so there’s something to suit everyone. But before you start ripping out your old bathroom and make way for something new, you should start to plan your project to ensure you get the best outcome and guarantee satisfaction when it’s finished.
5 Steps To Follow When Planning Your Bathroom Design
1. Measure The Space
Make sure you measure your space so you know what’s possible. There’s no point dreaming of that giant spa bath when you can barely fit in a shower cubicle.
It’s also important to consider exactly how much space you need to be spare. Yes, you might physically be able to fit in all of your intended bathroom furniture, but also think about how much room you need to use your bathroom easily. Measure for furniture, but also measure for space.
2. Assess Your Needs
What do you use your bathroom for? Most new houses have more than one bathroom and usually, people don’t use the different bathrooms for the same thing. One bathroom might be your chillout zone with a luxurious bath and the other ensuite could be a quick shower and go bathroom.
You should understand what the intentions for your bathroom will be and also consider who uses the bathroom too.
If you and your partner use separate bathrooms, then it’s likely that some things can be missed out, while other appliances may need adding. Shaver ports, for example.
3. Consult With Experts
Never try to tackle a huge bathroom design project by yourself. You should always speak to the experts. Go to a few bathroom showrooms and take a look at websites. There may be hidden costs that you hadn’t thought about and potentially issues to do with electricity and plumbing which aren’t safe for you to carry out by yourself.
If you aren’t confident with DIY, it’s always best to speak to a professional bathroom designer who can give you some ideas on how to remodel, then let the bathroom building experts take over to build your dream.
4. Seek Out Inspiration
Social media is an excellent way to browse for new ideas that suit your style. Take a look at pictures for inspiration and try out new colours to ensure you have everything planned out before you start work. Creating a mood board of materials and colours is an excellent idea to secure your vision.
Starting out with no plan will often end in disaster.
5. Think About Trends
Trends come and go with interior design. The trick is to find something that’s on trend but is timeless. This means that you won’t need to replace your bathroom every few years, as that can get expensive.
If you’re looking for a classic, quality finish, marble or wood effect tiling, white fixtures and gold fittings is a timeless finish.
However, for the more modern minimalist, you could try some quirky hexagonal tiles, or a different colour of grout to really set off your bathroom, without feeling like you’ll need to change again so soon.
