Thinking of having a bathroom renovation?
Here’s a list of 10 ways to completely rethink your renovation.
1. Choose your materials.
When choosing materials for your bathroom renovation you will need to think about durability, cost, maintenance and the overall look and feel. From natural hardwoods and stone to elegant ceramic tiles, and from brass to chrome, there is a vast range of different materials which work well in bathrooms for your walls, floors, fixtures, surrounds and splashbacks. It’s worth researching the type of materials you like, so that you can make an informed decision about what’s right for your bathroom renovation.
2. Replace outdated sanitary ware.
Tired of the old bathroom suite? With a huge range of different styles on the market, there has never been a better time to think about replacing your out-of-date bath, shower, toilet and sink. You can create a whole new style for your family that’s more functional and beautiful. Whether you are limited for space or you have a large bathroom area, try out as many designs as you can to see which ones suit your home best. Consider wall-hung toilets, counter-top sinks and free standing bathtubs for a completely new feel in your bathroom.
3. Colour me beautiful
Consider a complete change of colour scheme for your bathroom renovation. White may still be the most popular choice for bathroom suites, but there’s no reason why your choice of suite should limit the colour scheme for the rest of your bathroom. From monochrome or grayscale bathrooms for lovers of the neutral, to natural shades and textures to complement stoneware or wooden furniture, the possibilities are endless. Choose tiles, paint, vanities and bathroom flooring which suit your style; from subtle, pastel shades to vibrant, deep colours. Or if you’re set on clean, cool white, consider some artwork to brighten up the bathroom and a few accessories in primary colours. A new colour scheme makes a huge difference to the feel of a room. Which one suits you?
4. Create an open plan look
It’s not for everybody, but an open plan bathroom can look simply breathtaking. Whether you’re renovating an en suite for your master bedroom or looking to revamp your apartment, an open plan design creates a wonderful feeling of luxury in your home. Never have that cramped feeling in your bathroom again! Open plan bathroom designs make your home and bedroom seem more spacious, romantic and relaxed. Step into a sunken bath for that decadent, penthouse feel. Create a peaceful haven with a freestanding bath for your family and guests and they’ll never want to leave!
5. Rethink the tiles.
Just because the standard bathroom tiles are square and white doesn’t mean that you have to be the same as everybody else! From small natural stone tiles in quartz, granite or limestone to large, ceramic tiles in every colour you can imagine, there really is no limit to the changes you could make simply by choosing a new set of tiles.
