I hope you’ve had a good week. It’s getting a bit frantic around here as pre-Christmas delivery deadlines approach.
We have also been working on a bathroom plan for clients who are remodelling their existing space.
Bathrooms can be tricky and costly. If you are remodelling and the existing floorplan works, it’s more cost effective to leave plumbing as is and update fixtures and fittings.
One thing you need to work out before you start is who uses the bathroom and how?
If it is an ensuite in a busy home then double basins could be the key.
If you have young children, or are considering selling your home anytime soon, then make sure you include a bath.
And don’t forget storage. Towels don’t store that well in bathrooms as the steam and moisture can effect them so, if possible, keep them in the linen cupboard outside.
Do think about storage for beauty and hygiene products, though and a great place is in a mirrored cabinet. They’re a bit better these days than the old shaving cabinet with the sliding mirrored doors!
And add some colour. Tiles come in every shape and colour these days and there is no limit as to what you can do with them.
Again, think about how the bathroom will be used and add colour accordingly.
I hope you get some time for a soak in the tub this weekend.
