Bathrooms are a necessary part of civilised life, and every so often they need to be renovated or refreshed. The first choice is whether to DIY it, call in professionals, or compromise. There are some of the following ways to make the choice a bit easier and the best way is to plan it all out on paper first:
Decide what you want from your new bathroom. If you have elderly or vulnerable people living in the home, a wet room can make their lives infinitely better. A stripped back minimalist style is easy maintenance and always looks neat and tidy, making it a great option for large busy families. On the other hand, those with a taste for luxury might want to splurge on a regal bathroom in which they can pamper themselves with lengthy bubble baths, perhaps with a nice glass of wine to hand. Once you have decided on the basic style, amazing designs can be discovered at bathroom showrooms in Harrogate.
- Colour Scheme:
Choose your colour scheme based on your favourite colour combinations, but do bear in mind the fact that some colour schemes are easier to keep looking clean than others. In general, avoid any scheme that might look grubby – some shades of yellow, green and brown, and avoid décor that features streaks, splatters and blots. Instead, opt for clean blocks of colour teamed with polished mirrors and chrome.
- Things to be Wary of:
Make sure the flooring is properly sealed and made from a waterproof product. Also make sure that you check the quality of your pipework before you seal it behind attractive facings. These two jobs are so critical to the condition of your bathroom and even your whole home, you might want to call in a professional. This is especially critical as any issues with leaks and flooding might impact severely on your home, and can invalidate your home insurance.
- Things to Embrace:
Ensure there is enough storage in your bathroom. There is a surprising amount of stuff that we need in order to present a clean and tidy face to the world, so do make sure you have enough space to keep everything neatly. As functional and practical as bathrooms must be, there is also (usually) space and time for some decorative features. Having a good-looking bathroom will make keeping it clean and tidy a pleasure, as well as making it into a unique and attractive room that will give you pleasure for years to come.
There we have some points to consider when renovating your bathroom. The route you go – all professional, all DIY, or somewhere in between – depends entirely on your choices, your expertise, and your confidence in your own skills. However it’s better to get professional help catered to your own taste to produce some stylish & breathtaking designs.
