What's my aim?

Before you do anything, it’s important to establish how you’d like your bathroom to function. Maybe you have a large family and you need the bathroom to be functional to suit everyone or perhaps it's a space to relax. By considering these big questions before you start making smaller-scale decisions, you should be able to pin down exactly what you want from your ideal space.

How do I get the most efficient layout?

The layout of your bathroom is a big decision. Our bathroom designers will aim to create zones for washing and relaxing. This is useful for the smooth running of your bathroom and for ensuring that all electrical and plumbing components are correctly positioned. Our expert bathroom designers can take all of these options into account and come up with the most suitable layout for you.

What’s my style?

After considering the practicalities, you can finally get to the fun! Our bathroom designers take into account your sense of style, colour choices, preferred materials and come up with a fabulous design that will suit you. There are so many options out there so choose something that suits you best - maybe you’ve been attracted to designs that feature bold colours, or a luxurious marble bathroom with a feature bathtub. Or possibly a sleek, minimalist bathroom with hidden features has taken your fancy?

Where do I want my lights and heating?

At this planning stage, you should also consider accompanying elements of the bathroom design, such as lighting and heating. It’s so important to get your lighting right, not only to create a welcoming atmosphere, but to see clearly. You may decide to keep your toes warm with underfloor heating or plinth heaters, or otherwise you might need to find a good spot for a radiator. It's important to let our bathroom designer know if you plan to add any of these features at the start of the design process.
