Having a functional bathroom is important but it doesn’t hurt to have hotel-ish looking one too. However, you have to remember that your bathroom isn’t solely for good social media photos. So to find the balance between creating a beautiful bathroom and achieving a well-functional one, here are some tips that you can follow.
Before You Buy
When creating a space, people tend to immediately jump into buying new stuff. I get it; this is the most exciting and fun part. However, you don’t wanna end up regretting and wasting money on sanitary wares and fittings that you won’t be able to use because they don’t fit your existing space. So before you go shopping, measure the space, take note of where the pipe work is and know that relocating them will increase overall cost. Design your bathroom first; this will make it easier for you to buy things.
Set A Budget
Sure it’s nice to have a fancy bathroom but is willing to shell out a lot of money just for the bathroom alone? What exactly is your allotted budget for your bathroom? Settle this before you go ordering fancy sanitary wares and fitting online. Work within your budget. You don’t wanna end up with a pile of credit card debt because you wanted a gold toilet bowl but with more than half of the bathroom unfinished.
Choose A Style
A contemporary bathroom will make a statement in a traditional home, while traditional suites add class and elegance to modern homes. It’s always a good idea to consider bathroom suites that will stand the test of time. Contemporary bathroom suites feature clean lines and strong shapes, which makes them a great option if you want to create a designer look. Traditional bathrooms evoke a sense of nostalgia and will always remain a classic favorite. Create the perfect traditional look with a roll top bath, high level toilet and classic crosshead taps. Choose a style that appeals to you yet still practical for everyday use.
Consider Your Requirements
Figure out what exactly you and your family needs in your bathroom. Look at your bathroom and figure out what you use on the daily basis, what needs replacement, what is hardly touched. Do not feel that you need to have a sauna room in your bathroom just because it’s trendy or looks good on other bathrooms if you know no one in the household will really use it.
Buying Sanitary Wares And Fittings
You can either buy the products individually or you can purchase a complete bathroom suite bundle, which can actually help you to save money.
Think about who will be using the bath in your house. This will help you determine the kind of bath that will suit your bathroom.
When choosing a shower, space is a major deciding factor. If you have a huge space, then a separate shower and bath is fine. But if you have a narrow space, you might have to opt for combined bath and shower or decide to just stick with a walk-in shower.
Basin is one of the most fun things to shop for because there are a lot of different fancy designs to choose from. But, you would have to focus on the space you have and the overall look that you want to achieve in your bathroom. From there, you’d be able to choose the right basin for bathroom.
People assume there’s nothing much to consider when choosing a toilet. When in fact there’s a lot. Nowadays there are different designs that will be better suited to the space you have like wall-mounted toilets for small spaces. Aside from that, you can also find a toilet that includes a soft close seat to prevent accidental bangs, as well as a dual flush cistern to save water.
· Bathroom Vanity Units And Storage
Keeping your bathroom clutter-free is also important. There’s no point in having a hotel-like bathroom if it’ll only end up looking like a mess every time because there’s no space to store bathroom accessories and essentials. So carefully choose vanity units and storage that will cater to your needs.
