Renovating A Bathroom? Consider These 3 Essential Tips

A bathroom renovation can be an exciting process, because who wouldn’t feel interested in enjoying a brand new bathroom during their morning and evening washes? There’s nothing quite like replacing an old shower unit to one with great water pressure, rejuvenating an old toilet unit, or implementing new fixtures like underfloor heating or towell radiators (both of these are lovely to experience in the winter).

That said, bathroom renovations take more focus than you may require when renovating a conventional room space. This is because the plumbing involved in bathrooms and the necessary adjustments it will dictate can influence our decision-making thoroughly. If we’re not careful, we might make mistakes we’re not expecting.

It’s also important to consider a few measures for making the bathroom a comfortable space to occupy, from how you approach the winter designer to what kind of locks you place on the door. In this post, we’ll discuss three essential fixtures to keep in mind when renovating your bathroom in the best possible way:

Orientation

It’s harder to perfectly orient a bathroom in the exact way you might want, because plumbing installations means that the toilet may need to face a certain way, or that it will be easier to place a bathtub in a certain direction, with the drain on one side. With a good plumber, however, you’ll have more freedom to determine which installations go where, and what compromises you might wish to make in return for more space. Turning a small downstairs bathroom into a shower wet room, for instance, could help it take on more room, with an overhead shower that provides more coverage when trying to get clean.

Privacy

It’s good to care for your privacy as much as you possibly can in a bathroom, but this can be much more important depending on where it’s situated in your household. A ground floor flat that an outside street looks into? That requires careful planning. With proper curtains (netted or otherwise), blinds that let light in but protect from onlookers, and frosted glass, you can design a bathroom that will repel those who would otherwise catch a glance in, while still keeping the space airy, ventilated, and pleasant to occupy.

Unique Necessities

No two bathrooms are entirely the same, and so it’s a good idea to make sure that you opt for the little quirks you feel are important. A certain style and shape of mirror, or perhaps a freestanding bathtub if you have the space to spare can lend character and beauty. For practical purposes, a storage area for towels and a medicine cabinet you can keep safe all make a difference too. For some people, a little wooden holder for many toilet rolls can be a good implement to install, while for others, heightened toilet basins with pull-strings to flush can add some rustic charm to a cottage environment. It really does make a difference in the long run.

With his advice, we hope you can consider the best essential tips, even when renovating a bathroom.
