And plan again! Picture this: you see a showroom bathroom, fall in love and buy it, and then get it home and find out that it doesn’t fit your bathroom space.
Small considerations like door openings, wall space for storage and your viewpoint entering the room will all impact your bathroom choices. A key factor that will affect your design will be the position of the soil pipe, so bear this in mind from the start.
There are a number of great planning tools available online which allow you to map out your space in both 2D and 3D in some cases. Bathstore allows you to plot in 2D, with the option of booking an expert design consultation instore to see your plan come to life. Victoria Plum use SketchUp on their website to allow you to plan and visualise your space in 3D without the need for a CAD design degree!
Whilst you may want to refresh your bathroom space in an older property, think about what is already in place. Vintage tiles which have been spruced up can be a nice addition within the room and, cleverly complimented, can add real style and individuality to the space. This will also reduce the potential cost of removing tiles which may be stuck on pretty tight – you might learn to live with a repurposed tile if it means you can splash out on a good shower. Aquatique is a great shower to consider in this instance; it’s traditional style and elegance brings a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’.
