Planning the design of a new bathroom can be a daunting task. You want to make sure every single penny of your investment is well spent. To ensure you don’t focus your attention in the wrong places (and spend an inordinate amount of time worrying about things that you shouldn’t be) we’ve created this post that delves into the four things you should prioritise when planning your new bathroom.
Ultimately, your bathroom serves a purpose. The toilet, shower (maybe even a bath) and sink all need to function properly. These are all things that the people in your house use every single day. If they don’t work well, it can be incredibly frustrating. Perhaps more infuriating than anything else is a shower with weak water pressure. As annoying as it can be, thankfully, there is a simple solution: installing a shower pump. Quality shower pumps can bolster water pressure and give your home the high pressure shower everyone craves.
After ensuring that everything in your bathroom works adequately, you then need to see what you can do to make sure everything runs efficiently. If you have a water meter installed in your home, you have a strong financial incentive to ensure that all your bathroom fixtures use water efficiently. One way you can do this is to fit aerating shower heads and taps. Another way you can do it is to install central heating pumps that autonomously find the most efficient way to heat and distribute water around your home.
Tucked away in the corner of the house, or hidden away under the stairs, bathrooms can often be quite confined spaces. Getting the most out of this space requires careful planning and an ability to find space-saving solutions. Part of this is furnishing your bathroom with pieces that are perfectly suited to the space. Fitting a corner basin is an especially savvy way to maximise the amount of room you have. Mounting the towel bar on the back of a door and opting for a shower curtain instead of a sliding glass door are similarly effective moves.
The appearance of your bathroom is always going to be a priority. Tempering your aesthetic vision with practical consideration is an inevitability but striking a delicate balance between the two is possible to accomplish. Tiles are a good example. Sleek and refined, they are also water resistant - making them more than capable of withstanding splashes of water the sink and shower. 2019 has ushered in a couple of important bathroom trends. Neutral and understated, grey bathrooms have become extremely popular. So too, have rose gold fixtures. If you want to be on top of the latest trends – and these ideas sound appealing to you – consider incorporating them into your bathroom design.
