Bathroom designs tend to be smaller spaces that are easy and lower cost to redecorate or renovate. Here are some areas of focus you might want to take into consideration!
Many of us are looking to make improvements to our lives now it’s 2022. If you’re looking to get involved with home improvements this year, you might be wondering where to start. Your home is your oyster. Bedrooms, lounges, dining rooms – you may already have a specific space at the top of your to-do list. If you’re unsure where to start, why not go with the bathroom?
Things to consider when planning your bathroom design
One of the easiest things to change in your bathroom is your colour scheme. If your bathroom has walls, you can repaint, completely changing the look and feel of the space. Make sure to buy bathroom-specific paints, as these are specially made to be able to resist regular exposure to water and damp atmospheres. Popular colours tend to include blues, greens or whites and greys. But you can go with whatever you think fits!
There are all sorts of flooring that you can have in your bathroom. Of course, you need to be logical with your choice. Options like carpet or wood flooring don’t tend to be the most water-resistant materials and can grow soggy, mouldy, begin to lift or smell over time. Popular options tend to include tile and laminate. The good news is that there are so many different colours, designs and more in these materials that no matter what look you’re going for in your bathroom, you’ll be able to find something that works well!
Towels, robes and other bathroom linens serve more than a practical purpose alone. Sure, we all have them to dry off after a bath or shower, but they can tie in well to your bathroom’s design too if they’re stored in your bathroom! Consider quality options that tie in with your colour scheme and add a bit of texture to the space. Richard Haworth offers a variety of options.
New Bathtub or Shower
Whether you have a bathtub or shower, this is likely to be one of the most used parts of your bathroom. The majority of people will have a bath or shower every day. So, it’s not all too surprising that the spaces tend to experience a fair amount of wear and tear. This is a larger investment to make, but if your bath or shower is looking worse for wear, why not try replacing it?
You could go for the same design, which will be pretty straightforward, as a bathroom fitter or plumber will be able to do a direct removal and replacement. If you want to go for a different style, there might need to be some remodelling work or changes to your plumbing carried out. This will make a major change to space but will look fresh and new.
Final thoughts on bathroom design
Hopefully, some of the ideas outlined above should help to get the ball rolling. Make sure to come up with a budget for your renovations and redecoration before getting started and always use reliable contractors with a good portfolio and good reviews!
