As the New Year approaches, many people consider home improvements that can transform their property. As one of the most important rooms in the home, the bathroom is one of the most popular options. But what are the important considerations when installing a new bathroom this New Year? And how can you be sure to achieve the right results?
What are the important considerations when installing a new bathroom this New Year?
There are a number of important considerations to bear in mind when it comes to installing a new bathroom this New Year. These include:
- Planning the layout
- Choosing the fixtures
- Consider the finishing touches
Planning the layout
One of the first things you should consider is the layout of the new bathroom space. This should factor in plumbing constraints, which will determine the positioning of the toilet, sink, bath and/or shower. Once this has been established, you can then plan the layout of other important aspects, such as storage cabinets, vanity units and aesthetic features.
Choosing the fixtures
Following this, you can then choose the fixtures. There are a number of considerations to bear in mind for this, including:
- The style and design- traditional, contemporary, or rustic, are all different and popular style options for any bathroom space, and the bathroom fixtures you choose can all reflect these styles. If you are aiming for a cohesive space with a clear design style in mind, it’s important to choose fixtures that complement this design style and coordinate well with each other.
- Water efficiency- different fixtures have different levels of water efficiency and if you are wanting to save on energy bills, and be more conscious of your water usage, water saving fixtures can be very beneficial. This can include low flow toilets and shower fittings.
- Size factors- if space is a limited factor in your bathroom then you can consider using slimline bathroom fixtures. These take up less floor space than traditional fixtures and can help to make more reusable room in your bathroom.
Consider the finishing touches
You will also need to consider the aesthetic finishing touches. From the grouting and tiling to the taps, shower fittings and even the lighting, there are a range of factors that can have a big impact on the look and feel of your bathroom space.
