The bathroom is a very personal and private space; a place where we not only bathe, but a room in the home that can be a sanctuary and escape from everyday life. If you are considering renovating your bathroom or building a brand new one, what are some things to keep in mind in order to create your dream bathroom?
How Much Can You Afford?
The first step is to work out your budget. Only then can you really make decisions on what you can include in your dream bathroom. After this, come up with a list of the types of things you would like your new bathroom to include. Start the list off with the essential items (the things you can’t do without), estimate the costs of these items, then add in some non-essential luxuries. Always be sure to over-estimate the total spend, as there will always be unexpected costs.
Try and design things in such as way as to let in as much natural light as possible during daytime. This will negate that closed-in feel many bathrooms have. Put in an extra large window if there is space, and also add a large mirror over the vanity, as it will reflect more light around the room. For artificial lighting, you need at least one bright light to see by, but to really set a nice ambient atmosphere, you want to install some soft lighting as well. Perhaps even coloured lighting.
Just the right vanity design and vanity tops can really finish the bathroom off perfectly. Will you go for one basin or two? Marble and granite make for very luxurious vanity tops and are worth spending a little more on. If budget is an issue, then you can still get a stone vanity top by choosing from the vast variety of engineered stone available.
Fixture and Fittings
The trend at the moment is getting away from chrome and going for taps, spouts and other bathroom fittings that have a matt finish. This can look really classy when married with the right tiles and design. The choice is yours, but it’s a trend worth looking into.
