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 need 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 towards the perfect design.
Step 2 – Decide What Style of Bathroom You Want
Contemporary or Timeless Classic? 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 contemporary bathroom design or more of a timeless classic 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 feel? Do you want to incorporate smart home technology such as a digital shower, Bluetooth mirror or one of our TOTO shower toilets? Anything is possible…
Step 3 – Identify Who Will Be Using This Bathroom
Is this a family bathroom, an ensuite or a small WC? It’s important to identify how many people and who is likely to be using this bathroom. For example, is this a family bathroom that will be used by both adults and children and do you need a bath to bathe children?
Step 4 - Future Proofing Your Bathroom
Do you need to future proof this bathroom and make it more accessible for an older person perhaps in years to come? Future proofing your bathroom doesn’t mean you need to compromise on the aesthetics. Less-abled bathroom designs are so much more appealing now and we have some beautiful modern designs available at TileStyle. Fabulous and functional. These are all important aspects of the thought process when it comes to lasting, clever bathroom design.
