One of the rooms that we often overlook and do not put too much thought into planning is the bathroom. People will often make do with their bathroom and maybe give the walls a coat of paint or wallpaper. However, we should take more time in planning this essential room of our home to make it relaxing and comfortable. If you are planning a makeover of your bathroom, then you can get lots of tips from the experts in designing this room on the Readers Digest website. Below are some of the factors that you need to consider during the design process to make sure that your bathroom is as comfortable as possible.
Make Use Of The Space That You Have
Getting the most out of the available space that you have can sometimes require thinking outside of the box. Even if you are not planning on using their services, you may wish to speak to a couple of professional bathroom installers and get some ideas for planning your bathroom. The bigger companies use CAD (Computer Aided Design) to create a working plan of the available area and allows them to play around with the design to utilise the space as much as possible. Once you have got a few ideas, you will then need to decide on what you are going to include in your bathroom.
What To Include In Your Bathroom
The things that you can include in your bathroom are all going to depend on how much space that you have available. Most bathrooms will consist of showers, toilets, and sinks as a minimum. However, if you have space, you may also wish to include a bath, a bidet or even a hot tub or sauna. Work out what you need, what you want, and what will fit into your bathroom. Once decided you can then go shopping for the bathroom furniture and fixings.
Make It A Wet Room
One idea that is becoming increasingly popular is making your bathroom a wet room, meaning the floor can get wet and there is no carpets or vinyl floor. If you are keen on this idea, it is essential that you choose floor tiles that have some texture to them, as when smooth tiles get wet, they are also slippery. However, making a bathroom a wet room has lots of advantages, and when you have this installed in your home, you will wonder how you ever coped without it!
Decorating Your Bathroom
You will need to choose the tiles and paint colour to match your new bathroom suite. Another important consideration is the lighting in the room, as having good lighting can change the overall effect of the room. Having the lights positioned in the nest locations and being able to control the light levels will help to make your new bathroom a warm and inviting room in your home.
Get A Professional Installation
You can always hire a professional. Unless you have advanced DIY skills, if you want the best finish for the new bathroom, you might opt for the services of a professional builder. As well as being able to do the job to a high standard if you find a reputable builder, they will also most likely be able to finish the job much quicker. Let’s face it, it is hard to find the time in our busy lives to take on a large project. Fortunately, there are many websites that you can use such as Checkatrade, where you can find local builders with good reputations, and see reviews from their customers. Before you know it, you could be enjoying your new bathroom with the lights turned down low, relaxing in a nice hot tub!
