As rooms go, the bathroom stands out as one if not the most prominent room to consist within the home.
Most people will agree that when given a chance to envisage their perfect home the bathroom is dreamt of featuring extravagance and luxury all contained within a large room. This will feature expensive items such as hand crafted furniture combined with a mixture of traditional and modern fixtures and fittings.
However this for most is only a dream. We are all not lucky enough to have a large bathroom with a wealthy budget to furnish it. But this does not mean that we cannot create a beautiful bathroom that offers a tranquil and ambient atmosphere in which the body can relax.
Budget is also not always a necessity either. With a little planning and a good eye for a bargain this once bare space can be transformed in to a functional and yet stylish location in which you and your family can be proud of.
If like the majority of us, we have a small bathroom, limited to space then consideration has to be taken to what exactly can and cannot be used to decorate the room. You do not have to go spending a fortune either making the room enticing. Simply by using your initiative and creativity you can give you bathroom a fantastic overall. Using elements such as decorative mirrors and lighting combined with idyllic colours and functional yet stylish furniture, balanced with strategically placed accessories will enable your bathroom to become perfect for your requirements.
Where do you start though? The first options you need to consider are the overall purpose of your bathroom. Knowing exactly what and who is going to be using the bathroom will help you to realise the best accessories and furniture required. For instance, if the bathroom is only for you and your partner storage will not be a main precedence. But if the bathroom is going to be used by all your family including children etc. then the use of functional furniture that can be utilised for storage will be a main factor.
The main and possibly the most important issue will be if you require a plumber and electrician. This could be because you have decided to install a new toilet, sink or maybe a new shower. If this is the case you need to ensure what your overall requirements will consist of. If you are going to simply replace an existing sink or toilet then the project will be relatively straight forward and in most cases could be undertaken by a handyman. However if you are considering a total refurbishment, where the whole bathroom will need to be re-plumbed then you will in all likelihood require the services of a professional plumber and an electrician.
One of the most important aspects of remodeling the bathroom is the measuring up process. Many of us forget this priority which can result in cluttering up the bathroom to actually finding that items will not fit and in the worst case scenario become especially expensive. This is usually apparent through the excitement of going and getting new items of furniture and furnishings for the bathroom. Re-designing the bathroom can be extremely enjoyable but ensuring you plan and structures your project from start to finish will ensure it all go’s without a hitch.
