Posted on October 29, 2017 at 9:09 am

When you are fitting out a new bathroom, it’s important to get the design right. This will help the room to work with you and your lifestyle, making it a good addition to your home. One of the ways in which you can ensure a successful bathroom project is to hire a bathroom designer. They will often provide fitting services as well, so you can get everything sorted in one place. Often, the design service will be free of charge if you do decide to use their fitting services as well. They can do everything for you, from choosing tiles and flooring to figuring out the plumbing.

Choose a bathroom designer with lots of experience and a good portfolio. Check their website to see if they have previous projects listed on there. A reliable fitter will want to show off their work and will often have a good selection of photos for you to browse.

Buying Bathroom Cabinets – the Options

Posted on September 30, 2017 at 2:26 pm

Bathroom cabinets are important to ensure you have enough storage. When you are choosing cabinets for your bathroom, there are some considerations you will need to remember. Here are some top things to think about:

  • Do the cabinets match the rest of the bathroom? Choose something that will complement your existing bathroom design, unless you are planning on having the whole bathroom replaced.
  • Could you possibly build the cabinets yourself? Cabinets can be very expensive for what they are. If you are good at DIY and know your way around a toolkit, could you possibly build your own storage?
  • Do you want soft close cabinets? Soft close doors will not slam shut and look and feel more premium. Some bathroom companies sell soft close accessories as standard.
  • What is your top price point? Shop around to find good deals on cabinets. Options will vary depending on price point and quality.

How to Choose a New Bathroom Design

Posted on August 26, 2017 at 12:29 pm

A new bathroom can be an exciting and also exhausting process. You need to go into it with plenty of ideas about what you will do. The first step is to establish the design you want and make sure your design is going to meet the needs of everyone who uses the bathroom.

The best way to put together a new design is to talk to a professional. Interior designers or bathroom showrooms will be able to help you. They can come to your property and measure up to find a design that will work with the space you have. Discuss with your designer what is important to you. For example, if you want a separate show and bathtub, now is the time to tell them.

Once you have a layout, concentrate on aesthetics. This part can be great fun – you can choose items like sinks, flooring and tiles to give the room that personal touch.

Choosing the Perfect Bathroom Tiles

Posted on February 12, 2017 at 4:41 pm

Bathroom tiles will play an important part in the appearance of your bathroom. You want to choose some that will look good now as well as in years to come. Spend some time making the right selection to make your bathroom look modern yet timeless.

First of all, think about the colour scheme of the rest of the room. Decide whether you want your tiles to blend in or make a statement. You could always choose a more neutral colour and use a bold tile trim to make the tiles stand out without going over the top.

Make sure you know what you are looking for and that you are happy with your final selection. Look through lots of home magazines – pick them up from different retailers and see what they have done with their bathroom displays. Visit lots of shops to look at tiles in person and see how they really look.
