A bathroom is the second most important room in the house after your kitchen. It is designed for total relaxation, luxury and functional use. It won’t just add luxury to your bedroom, but will also increase the value of your home. Plan in advance to avoid making significant changes later or worse, mistakes that can cost you dearly.
First of all, it’s important to assess your needs and what you’d like to have in your bathroom. Despite the size of your home and intended bathroom, you need to come up with a small haven in your choice of style to relax after a long tiresome day at work.
Whether you’re renovating your bathroom or building a custom home, these tips will help you create a luxurious bathroom you’ll enjoy using and having en suite your bedroom:
1.Assess Your Needs for a Bathroom
What do you want to have in your bathroom? Note that whatever you opt for is dependent on the space you have available. Do you want a shower or bath or both? What about storage and basins? The fittings, fixtures and color theme you opt for should be guided by what you want your bathing space to achieve.
For instance, do you want an invigorating and energizing bathroom suite or a luxury haven to escape to after a long day? Visualize on how you want your bathroom to be to guide the kind of design items you pick. Use magazines and good spas you’ve visited before to find inspiration.
2. Create a Layout Plan
Although changing your flooring, fittings, tiles and repainting your walls can give your bathroom an instant look, create a layout plan if what you have isn’t working for you. Moreover, if you’re building a custom home or can afford the costs that come with changing an existing bathroom, go for it.
Opt for sliding doors if the space you’ve got for creating a bathroom is small. Use an online design tool or a graph paper to create a DIY layout or use a designer to come up with a plan that makes the most of your existing space.
Make sure your plan caters for your future needs in old age or if you intend to eventually sell your home; you might need a bath for these two reasons.
3. Choose Your Style of Choice
Seek inspiration from online design websites or blogs, interior design magazines and real bathrooms in hotels and spas to get inspiration for your own. Whether you want a contemporary, classic, modern or whatever style in your bathroom, there are endless options to choose from.
Compare the cons and pros of various design styles to find what suits your needs, tastes and personal preferences.
4. Add Ventilation
Although windows facilitate free flow of fresh air in and out of your bathroom, add proper ventilation to ensure your bathing space stays fresh. Ventilation also comes in handy to ensure condensation doesn’t damage the furniture you might want to use in your bathroom. It’ll also ensure no steam gets to your bedroom.
Install vanity in your bathroom to provide the extra space you need to store your towels and other toiletries. Inbuilt storage is perfect for small spaces.
There’s also need to add lighting, trendy floor tiles, develop a budget, hire a qualified contractor and ensure your bathroom isn’t just decorative, but also functional.
