31 Jul Things to Avoid and Consider When Planning Your Bathroom:
At Bespoke Bathrooms, we do our utmost to bring your designs and ideas to life. Your bathroom should be a place of relaxation, cleanliness and a room you are proud of.
If you plan to undergo a complete renovation of your old bathroom or you’re working on a new build, Bespoke Bathrooms are here to help.
With that being said there are a few things that you should avoid and consider when planning your bathroom.
While these rules are not set in stone, they will help with the plan and execution of your bespoke bathroom.
Changing things too much:
While we work on renovations it sometimes becomes apparent that plans and possibilities don’t match. Moving your water systems around and changing the location of basics such as your sink and toilet can be a lot more work than you think.
Depending on the age and design of your home, walls may need to be chased and fresh systems put in. If not for practical reasons it is sometimes best to avoid such drastic changes.
We will work with you to come up with design ideas that complement existing features in your bathroom.
Underestimating your budget:
It’s important to factor in all moving parts when dealing with a bathroom renovation or new build. Labour, materials, overruns etc should all be considered when planning your bathroom budget.
At Bespoke Bathrooms, we will do our utmost to keep costs low, but you must have a preliminary budget in place, so no unwarranted surprises arise.
Feel free to ask us about any cost concerns and we will be happy to answer them.
While it may not seem important now, your design ideas should consider the future also. Do you plan to start a small family, will you be taking in elderly family members, or do you live alone?
All of these can play a part in design ideas and the final product. It may be prudent to put in place certain safety features or leave areas open for these in the future.
Brainstorm your potential plans and we can come up with some ideas that will match your present and future needs.
When working on a new space you may be tempted to fill all the open areas with appliances, shelving and features. We find it sometimes works best to leave these areas open.
Install what is necessary and put in a few features you have always wanted But we believe leaving some space for future alterations is always a good idea.
If something is missing, you will think of it in the future.
Think ahead of all the natural lighting you will have and what you will need to complement it. Sometimes colours work in our favour and other times they do not. Think ahead thoroughly to see what will work best.
We hope these few ideas will help you make planning your bathroom that bit easier. Sometimes forgetting one or the other won’t make a difference but all together can cause problems.
