6 Tips for a Successful Bathroom Remodel

6 Tips for a Successful Bathroom Remodel

The bathroom can sometimes be an afterthought when it comes to renovation. In reality, it’s one of the most important rooms in the house. People spend as much as 416 days in the bathroom over their lifetimes. So, it’s important to create a space that works for you.

Functionality and relaxation combined

The bathroom isn’t usually one of the largest rooms in the house. But whether or not you have the luxury of space, certain essential features need to be incorporated, from fixtures to waterproofing and ventilation.

By working with an experienced design team, you can find the best way to make the room both practical and calming, whatever type of space you’re working with.

Plan carefully

Before beginning any renovation, it’s essential to have a clear idea of what the finished space should look like. Before settling on designs, think about what your must-haves are. Otherwise, you might end up missing something important.

For example, do you need a bath or shower? What is your maximum budget? Are there any features you can’t compromise on (for instance an accessible sink)?

Think about what works in your space

When considering designs, it’s easy to get swept up in what looks great in other rooms. However, each space has its own features to take into account. If your bathroom is on the smaller side, consider which tiles and colours will make it look larger.

Similarly, the type of lighting you use might depend on the natural light you already have. Designers can help you work out how to blend artificial and natural lighting for a calming glow.

Visualise your design

Drawing a plan of your bathroom will help you to visualise how the space will work. You can do this by hand, with the help of a programme, or work with a trusted team who can mock up designs and drawings for you.

Your drawing should be to scale and include features that will remain as well as new additions, so you won’t need any guesswork.

Don’t forget storage

Minimalist bathroom designs can create a soothing, spa-like ambience, but the lack of storage can seem like a stumbling block. In reality, well-thought-through storage solutions can make clever use of the space to hide away any clutter.

Whether you choose floor-to-ceiling cupboards, display items strategically, or create space elsewhere, it should always be a solution you’re happy with.

Choose your materials

Working with high-quality materials can help you achieve fantastic finishes. These could be similar materials used to those in the rest of the house, creating a seamless link that flows between rooms.

Alternatively, you might choose to make the bathroom a feature, adding bold touches and using unique materials. Everything from large free-standing baths right down to cupboard door handles can make a difference to how your space feels.

Work with trusted professionals

It might seem more cost-effective to do work yourself, but without the right skills you may spend much more in the long run. 

The construction company you use is there to make your dream bathroom a reality. So, it’s vital to choose a reputable company that you can trust. We have collaborated with Epic Constructions on many of our projects in Mallorca, who are local experts.
