Designing a modern bathroom doesn’t have to be a chore, nor is it about all the obvious stuff, like the colour of the suite. As we will explain, there are other elements that you will need to think about to help you create the perfect bathroom environment.
Making sure you use all your available space, even if you have limited room. You want to make the most of the space available and this is where great design comes in.
Where will your fixtures go? Is there any leeway to move them? And, once fitted, can you move around them comfortably?
Also, you will have to consider storage and how much you will actually need. Just remember, less is more. There are plenty of ways to help you maximise your storage space all while not taking up too much room, and you can add ‘creative’ ways to solve your storage problems.
Make sure your design considers all the storage opportunities available to you.
The one thing that matters here is getting the right balance between the space and the design of your bathroom. Getting the balance between design and functionality is the key to creating a room that will see you for many years ahead. Whatever the size of your bathroom, getting the design right in the first place can mean the difference between a beautiful space and something cluttered that just doesn’t feel right for you.
Your bathroom lighting needs to be one of the first things on your bathroom design list and not an afterthought.
Lighting is important in bathroom design and is one of the golden three things you should always pay attention to (lights, tiles, and mirrors). Get one of these wrong and you will not get the effect you are looking for in your bathroom.
Another key decision to think about in your bathroom is colour choice. Do you want bright and airy or dark and moody? One of the first thing to consider is the amount of natural light you have in your bathroom and how best to use it. With good design, you can make even the darkest of bathrooms into a design statement which you can be proud of.
What is key to bathroom colour design is the tiles. Bathroom tiles are so versatile and come in many different sizes and colours nowadays. Chosen wisely it is the tiles that can give your bathroom the WOW factor.
You don’t need a massive budget to get the dream bathroom you want; the important thing is to make sure your budget works for you. Having the right budget is essential and making sure to spend it wisely AND get the effect you want. It’s no good spending everything up front on a suite, then wishing you had made the tiles your focal point. A properly set budget means you can have your cake and eat it, as long as you spend and save in the right places.
You will be very surprised at what an experienced bathroom designer can do even with a limited budget.
