We all have a general idea of what the bathroom of our dreams would look like, but unfortunately many of us don’t have the space and we definitely don’t have the budget to make it happen. We have to work with what we have and so with some consideration and some thinking outside the box, there is no reason why you can’t get close to the bathroom that you’ve always wanted but were too afraid to create. If you’re thinking of making changes to your bathroom right now then it’s highly likely that you moved into the property when the bathroom was already completed and you didn’t like it back then and you certainly still don’t like it now. It’s time for a change and you need to remember that this is one of the busiest rooms in the house, so anything that you want to have done needs to be done quickly and needs to be done properly.
We are always looking for new ideas like using black bathroom tapware instead of the typical chrome ones and it is thinking like this that can help you to create a bathroom like no other. Many people tend to look over important things like tapware when it is always the small details that make a big difference. The following are just some tips that will hopefully help you to create the bathroom of your dreams.
- Plan the layout – Just don’t start removing some items and replacing them with others without first figuring out the whole bathroom layout and how you want everything to be at the end of all of the work. There may be pipes that are sticking out from the walls which is a common plumbing problem and so it might be a good idea to have these tucked away inside the walls to provide you with more space to work with. You need to consider whether or not there is enough room for a bath and if there isn’t, what kind of shower do you want to install. There are toilets and sinks specially made for smaller bathrooms, so consider these as well.
- Consider the tiles – Hopefully you have decided to put tiles on the floor and on the walls and so this leaves you many different options to choose from with regards to size, colour, shape and patterns. Depending on the size of the space that you have to work with, certain tiles will work better than others. If it is a small space then it might be a good idea to have some bright colours in your tiles to give the room more scope and the illusion of space. Tiles are incredibly affordable and so take your time and make good choices.
This is a room that you and your family are going to be visiting every single day of the week and in many cases 3 to 4 times a day. You’re not going to get another chance to refurbish it for a number of years, so take all of the advice that you can get and use it whenever possible.
