It seems we’re always working on a bathroom fitting of some sort, whether it be designing and installing, or as part of a larger renovation job. Deciding on the right bathroom for you is not quite as simple as it may seem. Here’s a list of just 10 things you might like to consider if you’re thinking about a new bathroom.
Your new bathroom units don’t have to be the same size, shape or go in the same place as your old units. Water pipes can be relocated and your door can be rehung to open in a different direction.
Extra storage can be created with built-in or free-standing units. If floor space is limited, consider shelving or wall cabinets.
- Water Pressure
Your water supply and boiler type may impact on which shower units are suitable for your bathroom.
Your new bathroom may require additional lighting for shaving or applying make-up.
Whether you choose natural stone, treated wood or vinyl – make sure it’s slip-resistant, easy to clean and hygienic.
Areas subject to splashing water need to be tiled to protect the walls. Mirror tiles can create a sense of light and space. Mosaic tiles are great for awkward shaped rooms.
Bathrooms require specially formulated paint which is moisture resistant to prevent mould growth.
Moisture resistant vinyl or wipe clean wallpapers may be an option for creating feature walls.
- Rules and Regulations
Any rules and regulations should be checked with your local authority before any significant electrical, plumbing, building or maintenance work is carried out.
- Health and Safety
Water and electricity don’t mix! Always seek advice from a professional qualified plumber, electrician or bathroom fitter.
