Are You Wanting to Renovate Your Exiting Bathroom?
If you are renovating your current bathroom, take note of the pros and cons of your current design. Consider the space, lighting, storage requirements and style.
Ask yourself these three important questions before undergoing any renovation:
- What are you wanting to achieve?
- What is your budget?
- Who will be utilising the space?
Now it’s time to start doing your research. Carefully consider whether the proposed renovation needs to either fit the existing structure or require structural changes.
Once you have undergone all your research, get a designer in to carefully assess the layout and structure of your bathroom.
Deciding on bathroom fixtures
Bathroom fixtures are an important element in every bathroom. Luxury and functionality need to be carefully combined to create a seamless bathroom. There are many styles, shapes and finishes to choose from.
As you go through all your fixtures take into account their use and what you want out of each fixture, there are endless possibilities and so many essentials to consider.
- Are you wanting a wall mounted shower head or a rain shower head?
- Does a freestanding bath work in the space?
- Are you wanting an undermounted sink or does a vessel sink look better with your design?
The right bathroom cabinetry is essential
Cabinetry is one of the most vital elements in a bathroom, it will enhance a bathroom’s functionality and help utilise the space.
As Perth custom builders, we recommend doing your research. Make sure you are aware of your options before making any decisions on bathroom cabinetry. Your first step should be deciding on the layout of your bathroom. There is an abundance of options to help you utilise the space you have. With options of deep drawers, shelves and cupboards. Keep an open mind while shopping around.
Let’s talk tiles
Tiles have a major impact on a bathroom design, with so many different styles, sizes, patterns and materials choosing tiles can be a daunting task.
First of all, take a look at the space as a whole, consider the placement of the cabinetry, shower, toilet and vanity. It is important to know how much room you have to work with. If your bathroom is small, consider going for a large, light coloured tile. The colour and size of the tiles will impact the size of the bathroom. Large scale tiles are currently on trend and a light colour tile will help create an airy, spacious bathroom.
There are many different types of tiles to choose from, however, learning what tiles work best will help your decision process. Porcelain and ceramic tiles work best in very wet areas, since they are the easiest to maintain. Natural stone tend to require more maintenance and glass tiles look great on a wall or feature.
Does your bathroom have natural light?
Natural light will enhance the space by creating an airy, light filled bathroom. Skylights work well in a bathroom however If your bathroom does not have a lot of natural light, carefully consider the placement of artificial light such as pendants and downlights.
Have a look at our past blog post ‘Consider Natural Lighting’ for more information.
Let’s take a look at our Kensington bathroom renovation
Our Kensington renovation is a perfect example of a functional and stylish design.
Traditional white cabinetry with deep draws and cupboards have been used to enhance the storage space. A his and hers vanity means two people can comfortably use the bathroom.
The large shower has been built with a soap niche and rain shower head for added luxury, whilst the use of highlight windows allows the natural light to beam through the room.
The clients chose a large dark charcoal floor tile which beautifully contrasts against the white wall tiles and cabinetry. This bathroom is a perfect combination of luxury and practicality.
