Your bathroom is one of the most important and functional rooms in your home so it's important to make sure it's comfortable and suits your needs. When starting to plan your layout and design, it's helpful to create a list of items you'd like in your space. Do you need a bath? Or does a shower suit your family? Focus on exactly what you'd like and need, no matter how out-of-the-box or indulgent it might seem.
During the planning stage of your bathroom project, you may be looking for some inspiration and ideas. Take a look at our top tips for designing the perfect ensuite and what you should be considering to keep your bathroom safe for the whole family.
If you’re planning a large family bathroom that will service more than just two people, space is essential. If you don’t want to lose the luxury and indulgence of a bath, consider a shower over bath installation that will save floor space without sacrificing a bath in your home.
Storage is also another area you should consider closely before putting pen to paper. How much bathroom storage do you need? Do you have room to store your towels and other linens? Will a single bathroom vanity unit be enough for everybody using the bathroom? Have you considered dual basins in the bathroom so at least two people can you utilise your space comfortably at the same time?
Ventilation will help to minimise the chance for mould build up in your bathroom so plan early for an exhaust fan and heat lamps to keep your bathroom clear of excess moisture.
