Step 1 – Know Your Measurements

If you’re considering a bathroom refurbishment then first things first, you need to have your exact measurements and dimensions. Whether it’s a large family bathroom or a compact ensuite, they are crucial for deciding how things will ultimately look and fit. Photos and drawings are really useful too as they give the bathroom expert a visual clue as to what they’re dealing with. They don’t even have to be fancy, rough will do.

Don’t forget the ceiling height and measurements and locations of the doors and windows too. This will enable TileStyle’s bathroom design specialist to guide you more clearly as regards to the perfect design.

Step 2 – Decide What Style of Bathroom You Want

modern or traditional bathrooms
Modern or Traditional Style? What’s your preference?

Deciding on the style of your bathroom will be one of the main influences in the overall design. Do you want a traditional bathroom design or a modern and contemporary design? Ask yourself what design will tie in nicely with the overall aesthetic of your home. Are you going for a minimalist look or more of an eclectic vibe? Do you want to incorporate smart home technology such as a digital shower, Bluetooth mirror or shower toilet? Anything is possible…

Step 3 – Identify Who Will Be Using This Bathroom

Do you need to consider future-proofing?

Is this a family bathroom, an ensuite or a small WC? It’s important to identify who exactly is likely to be using this bathroom and how many. For example, is this a family bathroom that will be used by both adults and children and do you need a bath to bathe the kids?
