You browsed Pinterest, spotted your dream bathroom designs, and now you are ready to take the next step, finding and purchasing an ideal bathroom suite. The text below covers what to pay attention to in this endeavor.
Budget and Space Planning
Although pretty exciting, bathroom remodeling is a time-consuming process that often brings concerns and stress. But a well-thought-out plan can prevent all of that.
First, go through the space in your bathroom and see what you want to change. Design enthusiasts, as most of us are, can’t create a clear picture and be objective regarding what is possible.
Therefore, it is advisable to contact a professional who can tell you whether your wishes can be brought to reality.
For instance, keeping the plumbing layout untouched makes the process less complex.
Thus, changing the bathroom suite elements is the most noticeable but straightforward option.
Then, depending on the available space, you can consider adding additional furniture, accessories, and decorative items.
How Much Money to Spend
Logically, the next question revolves around finances. If you are remodeling on a budget, take some time to look for discounts or even second-hand bathroom suites.
In these cases, you must be extra cautious and examine each element to ensure they are not damaged and completely functional.
Also, regardless of your budget, you want to find pieces that are easy to maintain and durable.
The search may be easier for those with a larger budget. However, the market is packed with options, leading to prolonged decisions.
Define a Style and Purpose
The question of purpose here is about who will use the bathroom. For instance, if you live alone or with a partner, you have more freedom to play with bathroom remodeling.
However, if you are a family with kids, you must adjust the space for all the household members.
The bathroom must be practical and safe. The elements you choose should have rounded edges and smoother lines to prevent any potential injuries to your little ones.
In addition, you must ensure the medicines and chemicals you use for cleaning the bathroom are out of reach for your children.
The best option, in this case, is to install the medicine cabinet high enough so they can’t open it.
As for the style, it will depend, as we said, on who will use the bathroom. Still, even if you have kids, you can allow yourself to explore and show your style through a bathroom design.
So even when searching for a bathroom suite, ask yourself what look you want to achieve: traditional or contemporary. It will be easy to find sets in whatever direction you decide to go.
Choose the Bathtub
Choosing the bathtub will depend on your bathroom’s size. Consider installing a freestanding bathtub if you have a larger space and aim for a more stylish look.
On the other hand, a shower bath is ideal for smaller bathrooms as it combines the best of both worlds.
It allows you to take quick showers and most models have one end of the tub bigger to enable more space for showering.
In addition, you still get a traditional tub to enjoy long and relaxing baths in.
Examine Showerhead Offers
When we look at the general offer, we can find three types of showers on the market.
Concealed, exposed electric and digital showers. However, the selection continues as looking for a suitable showerhead model is a different adventure.
For instance, those looking to create a contemporary look often go for rain showerheads.
In contrast, a shower with a slider rail kit that allows height and angle adjustments is ideal for families with kids.
Choose the Toilet
Three types of toilets are available on the market: close-coupled, back-to-wall, and wall-hung.
The first type is ideal for traditional bathrooms, while a back-to-wall toilet is usually the option for those aiming for a modern look.
Finally, a wall-hung toilet is perfect for smaller bathrooms as it doesn’t take up a lot of space.
Choose a Basin
We’ll mention two types here: a basin with a pedestal and a vessel basin.
The first type of basin is among the most popular as it comes in different shapes and sizes, such as full and semi-pedestal and is available for all budgets.
On the other hand, a vessel basin is not a traditional option but is equally popular as it gives the bathroom a modern and sophisticated look.
Remember, the head designer of your bathroom makeover is you.
Still, we hope our guide helped you make a plan or inspired you to take action if you considered it earlier. One more tip.
When purchasing bathroom elements, pick the ones from the same collection to ensure the different shades match.
