Improving Your Bathroom

The bathroom is an important room in the house because it is a place where you can relax. Bathroom layouts are important, as are the finishing touches – they both combine to give the overall effect. Planning changes to your bathroom or designing a whole new one can be fun but should be done properly to avoid problems in the future. Sometimes you will have the luxury of being able to design your bathroom from scratch.

Whereas most people will probably have to work with what they have and will be limited by the size of the room. It is possible to knock down some interior walls to create extra room but this will depend on what type of wall it is. The cost of doing it and whether you can put up with the extra hassle whilst the work is being done. Obviously, you will also need to consider if it is worth losing the space from the room you intend to knock through to.

Even if you are constrained by fixed bathroom size, there are still plenty of things that you can do. It could be as simple as changing the paint colors and bathroom tiles or adding some nice plants and a chair, or it could be a bit more radical such as getting a new bathroom suite.

If you fit a new bathroom suite, you don’t have to put it where the last one was – play around with the room as much as you like or as much as constraints will allow. Think about fitting a shower unit instead of a bath to save space. Consider having a shower head fixed in the bath to avoid the need for both a bath and a shower cubicle.

A white bathroom suite may be a better option than a colored one as colors come.  Go with fashion and replacements, items will be easier to find in white. Also, a madly colored bathroom could put people off buying your house if you ever needed to sell. It’s much better to brighten up the bathroom with fresh paint because it is a lot easier to change.

If you are making major changes to the room. The best thing to do would be to go to a showroom and look at baths, showers, sinks, floor tiles.  Loos in situ – they can sometimes look quite different from their photographs. Ask experts for help and get the best advice possible.
