What do I want in the bathroom from a functional perspective?

Think through the key elements of a bathroom and which ones you require for your style of living. Do you have a family so a large bathtub for the children is ideal? Or are you not bothered by a bathtub if you have a fantastic shower? Is it essential to have lots of storage space for towels or is it just a display area for your best products?

How do I want it to look?

Function is crucial, of course, but how you want your bathroom to make you feel is also important. Think about whether you want it to be a relaxing space or a quick shower zone, and the look you’re aiming for, whether modern or traditional. Try making a moodboard of styles, materials and colours, so you can get a feel of what works for you as a whole, and to make it easier to convey your vision to your designer. Our bathroom designers can help you with tiles, floor coverings, colours and fixtures if you need any inspiration.

Should I change the layout of my bathroom?

Changing the entire layout of your bathroom can seem daunting however it may free up so much extra space or allow you that freestanding bathtub you've always dreamed of so it's worth exploring the options. Moving elements could improve the flow and functionality of your bathroom. Perhaps moving your bath to under the window would allow more natural light into the room or using the space of a formally boxed in wall could allow for a shower area.

What kind of lighting is best in a bathroom?

Bathroom lights can make a huge difference to a bathroom design. Small spotlights are very popular and are a great, safe feature to a bathroom ceiling. Think about using accessories to create light such as a light up smart mirror. It is important to consider your colour scheme when looking at bathroom lighting as colour temperature can impact a design - consider where you would like warm or cool lighting to compliment your colour scheme.

What about storage?

It goes without saying that the key to keeping your new bathroom smart is good storage, so think about what you’d like to keep in there – linens and towels or just toiletries? Consider a free standing vanity unit to save on floor space or building in a small cupboard with heating fro your towels. Our bathroom designers are experts in finding extra space you might not see in your bathroom design so make sure to chat to them if storage space is important to you!
