Quick guide to creating the perfect Bathroom Renovation

10 questions you should ask when engaging in a building designer

Here a a few essential points to remember when planning out your next bathroom renovation:

Hide it well:

Storage is always the most sought after commodity in homes, but nowhere is this more true than in the bathroom. Things like wooden crates or stools are both functional and stylish and storage ladders will help in accommodating candles and other decorative items. Make the most of every centimetre by adding recessed niches (great to store shampoo) and mirror-fronted wall cabinets.

Light it well:

Consider adding natural, mood and task lighting. Warm down lights and a stylish pendant light will allow you to create different moods in your bathroom, while custom styled mirror lighting can infuse some glamour and improve functionality when you’re applying make-up or shaving. Adding a skylight can also have a dramatic effect and will oversize frosted windows if your room allows for it. Let there be light!

Expand the mirror:

Mirrors do more than just reside on your bathroom wall, they can also serve as the artwork in the room. Huge mirrors are a great way of reflecting more light in the bathroom making it brighter. Back lit mirrors are a great way to add some drama to your bathroom, and illuminate the space without creating the harsh shadows.

Tiles for miles:

Make a statement with patterned floor tiles, and keep the wall tiles simple and elegant. If you’ve got the space, nothing says luxury more than a natural stone tile. Bathrooms tend to have a smaller floor space so it wont necessarily break the bank to choose a more expensive, better quality tile. Subway wall tiles are trending in a huge way right now and their popularity will be long lasting. Don’t forget to complement your tiles with great tap-ware; its the jewellery of the bathroom and creates a serious WOW factor.

Tip –  When choosing the builder, remember that the cheapest isn’t always the best. Workmanship, dedication, management skills, availability and communication skills are the main priorities when making up your mind!
