How will the bathroom be used?
The first step in planning the perfect bathroom is to consider how it will be used. Will it be mainly for showering, or will there be a bathtub? How many people will be using the bathroom? If more than one person uses it, you may want to consider having two basins. Is anyone in the family taller than average? If so, you may want to consider increasing the vanity heights.
Pick a style:
You may already have a good idea of the kind of bathroom you want. Whether traditional, contemporary or something in between, browse through some design magazines or look online on places such as Pinterest for inspiration. Once you’ve got a clearer idea of the style you want, you can start thinking about specific details like colours, finishes and fixtures.
Before you start planning, deciding which style you want for your bathroom is essential. Whether you’re looking for a traditional, hamptons, super modern or something more contemporary and sleek, knowing your overall style will help inform your decisions further down the line.
Choose your colours:
Once you have an idea of the style you’re going for, it’s time to start thinking about colours. Classic white is always a safe bet for a traditional bathroom, but you could also try out softer shades like taupe or grey. If you’re aiming for a more contemporary look, experiment with darker tones and patterns.
Think about storage:
It’s important to think about storage when planning your bathroom layout, as you’ll need to ensure enough space for all your essentials. Apart from increasing the vanity size, you can also consider contemporary wall-mounted shaving cabinets for extra storage.
Choose your fixtures and fittings:
There are a few things to consider when it comes to fixtures and fittings. Firstly, you’ll need to decide whether you want a bath or shower (or both). If you’re short on space, a shower might be the best option which is usually the best option for an Ensuite. Secondly, think about your sink and toilet – do you want them to be freestanding or wall-mounted?
Get the layout right:
Once you’ve decided on all your fixtures and fittings, it’s time to start thinking about the layout of your bathroom. You’ll need to make sure there’s enough space for everything to fit comfortably and leave enough room to move around freely.
