Designing or remodelling a bathroom

by | Dec 18, 2016 | Uncategorized | 1 comment


Planning to design or remodel a bathroom? The key to success is focusing on style and function to create a comfortable getaway.

Bathroom tiles are an important factor in bathroom design.  There are several benefits to using tiles in the bathroom, but the most obvious one is the beauty they add to the space. There is a huge range of style options to choose from, and it’s easy to find something to match your personality. Bathroom tiles also have functional purposes: they are water-resistant, durable, easy to clean and simple to install.

Aside from using the right type of bathroom tiling, there are other things you can do to make the space more efficient and aesthetically pleasing.


Installing a Bathroom Vanity

It’s worthwhile to invest in a bathroom vanity, because it allows you to store your toiletries and other personal effects you may need to freshen up. It can get unsightly and messy to leave your makeup and toiletries on top of the sink, and this is where a vanity would come in handy. With everything you need in one place, you can get ready and even clean the bathroom more quickly and efficiently.

Bathroom vanities come in a variety of sizes and styles, allowing you to find one that suits your lifestyle and the size of the bathroom. The key to choosing the right vanity is designing one that compliments your bathroom. Therefore, choose colours, styles and textures that suit the existing design. Consider who typically uses the space: opt for separate vanities for couples or pick a cartoonish theme for a kids’ bathroom. Also, remember to install the right mirror.


The Benefits of Toilet Replacement

When remodelling your bathroom, it’s an excellent idea to replace your toilet with a more efficient one. Since outdated toilets can consume more water than necessary, replacing your toilet with a more efficient one helps reduce your monthly bill.

Toilets also contribute to your bathroom’s design aesthetic. The toilet style affects the space the toilet occupies as well. Choosing a toilet with a high tank or one that’s mounted to the wall gives you more floor space to utilise.

Shop around for energy-efficient toilets; look for reviews on specific models. Narrow the options by checking if the toilet size is right for your space.


Installing Shower Sets for Your Remodelled Bathroom

Another bathroom product that will make your space feel more luxurious is a shower set. Shower sets come in a variety of designs, so you’ll find something that fits your needs and matches the design of your remodelled bathroom. Compared to bathtubs, shower sets are safer and more accessible, especially if they’re wide and have grab bars and non-slip tiles. Installing shower sets also makes your home more energy-efficient because you use less water and it gives the illusion of more space.

Installing a shower set can completely turn your bathroom into a clean, modern-looking space. Updated technology and materials allow you to have a shower set with basic functionality or a customised spa environment.

When starting your remodelling project, consider the drainage, splash and ventilation. Make sure to angle the shower head properly to minimise splash and ensure that the floor rests at a proper angle for better drainage. While showers don’t require special ventilation, you may want to add a fan to reduce humidity.
