Design tips

Designing your bathroom can sometimes be overwhelming. Besides budget and time constraints, there are other things to consider before you start:

  • Ensuite or family bathroom? Ensuites tend to focus on indulgence and escapism, while a family bathroom needs to be practical. The differences between the two will have a significant influence on your design.
  • Size: Could you increase the size of your bathroom? If remodelling, could you join a separate bathroom and toilet to create one room?
  • Plumbing: Do you plan to reconfigure the plumbing or are you happy with the existing layout?
  • Style: Which style do you prefer — period, classic, contemporary or cutting edge? Consider the long-term effects of your choice of colour for the bathroom suite. White is standard but it never goes out of style. Also think about what decorative finishes (tile, glass, marble, wood) you want.
  • Do you like baths or do you prefer showers? If it’s baths, would a conventional bath work well or would you consider a spa? You can also add something special to your shower, such as a hydro-massage or rain showerhead.
  • Consider the style of basin, vanity, toilet and furniture you want. Will there be more than one person using the bathroom or ensuite, and if so do you need dual basins?
  • What type of lighting, fittings and attachments will you need? Chrome is low maintenance and goes well with a white suite.
  • Storage: Avoid messy clutter by incorporating adequate storage in your bathroom.
  • Heating and ventilation: Ensure your bathroom is effectively heated — you may like to add heated towel rails to make the space more inviting.
