Ways To Improve Your Bathroom

The bathroom is an important room in the house because it is a place where you can relax. The layout of your bathroom is important, as are the finishing touches – they 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 space but this will depend on what type of wall it is, the price and whether you can put up with the extra inconvenience 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 into.

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

If you fit a new bathroom suite, you don’t need to put it where the last one was – play around with the room layout 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, or 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 bet than a coloured one as colours come and go with fashion and replacements items will be easier to find in white. Also, a strongly coloured bathroom could put people off buying your house if you ever needed to sell. It’s much better to brighten up the bathroom with 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 sinks, baths, showers, floor tiles, and loos in situ – they can often look quite different from their photographs. Ask experts for help and get the best advice possible.
