Coming home to a luxurious bubble bath is the perfect way to spoil yourself, after a long day with the kids or in the office. A newly renovated bathroom is like your own slice of heaven, particularly when you’re involved in the design process.
Reputable home builders will be able to provide you with guidelines when creating your masterpiece, as well as recommendations on the best products available.
Choose your Flooring
Whether you are building a new home or renovating an old one, you should always consider the flooring style of each particular room. Areas of the house with high foot traffic and dense moisture, such as bathrooms, should have a durable and easily cleanable surface, such as tiling.
Consider Storage Solutions
There’s nothing worse than having a cluttered bathroom bench. When renovating your bathroom, choose a wash basin that offers good cupboard space and a number of draws. Added storage will allow you to keep your bathroom looking more clean and tidy.
Update your Tiling
Updating your tiles can help to create a fresh and clean look in your new bathroom. Older tiles can often become cracked or display a build-up of mould, while out-dated patterns and colors can leave your bathroom looking like it was built in another time.
If you’re trying to achieve a sleek and modern design in your new bathroom, opt for neutral tones such as white, black or lighter shades of grey or blue. Most modern bathrooms use only a touch of color in designs, allowing owners to add their own personal inspiration with brightly colored, impermanent features.
Choose a Good Bathtub
It may seem like an obvious decision, but shop around until you find a bathtub that you simply can’t live without. The bath will be the centrepiece of your newly renovated bathroom, so you’ll want something that both fits in with your décor and provides you with the ultimate luxurious experience.
Choosing a freestanding bath is great way to draw attention, making this the focal point of your renovations. It may sound a little silly, but when buying your new bathtub, sit in it to get the full feel of the shape – looks can be deceiving, so this will help you to get the perfect bath.
Leave Plumbing & Electrical to the Professionals
While it may look easy on renovations or DIY television shows, updates to plumbing or electrical features in the bathroom should always be left to the experts. A mix up with electricity can have fatal consequences, while a plumbing disaster could leave your home without water for a week. Do your renovations the smart way and hire the professionals for any major works.
Home renovations can be a great experience and will often add great amounts to the resale value of your house, particularly when investing in bathroom or kitchen renovations. Whether you’re simply looking to update a few features of your bathroom or want a complete overhaul, follow these simple steps and you’ll be on your way to a relaxing bubble bath in no time!
