Home renovation can be a daunting process at the best of times. Whether you’re looking to give your living room a spruce up or your kitchen an injection of style and sophistication, a redesign takes time and planning to carry out effectively. This is especially important when working on smaller spaces such as your bathroom.
As an essential component to any home, a stunning bathroom can really transform your living space. Indeed, a great looking bathroom is a great way to add significant value to your property whilst creating a space that fulfils your homes needs. However, much like any other renovation job, forward planning is crucial, especially as there are factors such as plumbing to contend with.
With this in mind, here are some of our top tips on renovating your dream bathroom.
Although it can seem tempting to install that freestanding bath or the wet room you’ve always wanted, it’s important to be realistic with your budget, space and needs. If you’re working with a smaller budget, the expense of replumbing your bathroom to fit your design vision can be costly. Also, if you have a smaller bathroom in a family home, your needs are going to be very much different to a couple, for example.
Therefore, it is essential to spend time thinking about these factors when picking out fixtures to ensure that you find the right installations for you.
Now that the boring side of planning is out of the way, you can begin to think about the perfect design for your bathroom. Although styles and trends change year on year, the two most popular design themes for today’s bathrooms are either traditional or contemporary.
Traditional bathrooms lend themselves more towards a pleasant and rustic aesthetic, with softer edges and intricate, yet charming, fixtures. This can include anything from cross-head taps and slipper baths to chain flush toilets. The colour schemes focus on warmer colours whilst incorporating wood finishes to really accentuate the charming theme.
On the other hand, a contemporary bathroom utilises much more up to date trends for those looking for a sleek and stylish design. Emphasizing more angular and symmetrical fixtures, such as wall-mounted toilets and basins or waterfall taps. Unlike traditional designs, contemporary bathrooms take a more monochrome approach to their colour schemes, accentuating the white fixtures with darker wood and tiles.
Both can look truly stunning in your home and are a great jumping off point when considering design ideas.
Don’t get caught out
Of course, it’s important to remember that, if you’re doing work on your bathroom, it’s going to be out of commission for a while. Therefore, if you don’t have a backup, it could be a real pain. Get in touch with a friend who lives nearby or dust off that gym membership and use their facilities; whatever works best for you.
