With Christmas fast approaching, now is a great time to think about any home improvements you might want to make this New Year. Kitchens and bathrooms tend to be the most popular choices for renovations and improvements, and as styles in these rooms change quickly, this is no real surprise. But what are the most important bathroom renovation considerations this New Year? And how can you make sure your new bathroom is perfect for your requirements? Well, here at Lancashire Installations, we are bathroom design and installation professionals. And this is our guide to everything you should consider when renovating your bathroom.
Top bathroom renovation considerations this New Year
To make sure your bathroom renovation brings improvements to your home, you should consider:
- The bathroom fixtures
- Any specific requirements
- The layout of the bathroom
Specific bathroom requirements
If you struggle with mobility issues, you might have a specific set of requirements for your bathroom, including no high steps or lips, and raised or lowered sinks and toilets. These requirements should be the top of your list of bathroom considerations.
The bathroom fixtures
The toilet, the sink and a bath or shower are typically the only fixtures used in a bathroom. If you have a large bathroom you can probably install both a bath and a shower, but in a smaller room, you will probably need to choose one or the other, or combine the bath with a shower.
In terms of the fixtures themselves, you should choose the option that best suits your style aesthetically, but also improves practicality. For example, wall hung and slimline fixtures can save space, while a double vanity sink unit can make it easier to share the bathroom each morning.
The bathroom layout
Finally, you should consider the layout of the bathroom. Make the best use of the space available by using corner baths or showers, and make sure there is plenty of floor space in the centre of the room.
