Bathroom Scenes 48 FI

Make your bathroom a showpiece in your home, after all, it is one of the most used rooms in the house! Before embarking on your bathroom renovation, take some time to consider the following tips:

 

1. Make a list – identify the items in your bathrooms which are essential and what are the indulgence items. This will help you work out where to allocate the money in your budget. Underfloor heating would be great to have, however isn’t as essential as a good shower head!

2. Don’t always look for the cheapest tradesman to complete your renovation. Get some testimonials from past clients and ask to look at their past work. Even better, use someone that has been referred to you personally. It is important to know you can trust the team working on your new bathroom.

3. Neutral colours help give the illusion of greater space. If you are working with a small area, consider using white or off-white tones in the bathroom

4. Install a vanity that suits the size of your bathroom and ensure it has adequate storage space. There are vanity options with drawers or doors or a combination of the two. For smaller bathrooms, you may consider forgoing the vanity and using an overhead storage cabinet instead.

5. The right bath tub is essential, so try before you buy! Jump in the tub and make sure it is comfortable for you to sit in. Is it long enough and deep enough? Make sure the bath tub fits your space and doesn't make the bathroom feel cramped.

6. Buy a good quality toilet and make sure it suits your bathroom design! Have you selected a rectangle bath or basin? Select a toilet which has a square profile instead of a round one.

7. Complete your look with some high quality tapware and accessories. Continue the consistent look using round or square items that compliment the shape of your basin, bath and toilet.
