Two key considerations when discussing your remodelling ideas with a bathroom designer

23 Jan

No matter how much time or money you have or how talented your bathroom designer may be, there will come a time when you should have a good idea of how you want your bathroom to look and feel. Here we discuss two very important questions to ask yourself before speaking to your potential bathroom designer.

How is your bathroom used?

You may be of the opinion that a bathroom is just a bathroom, but there is a little more to it than that. We are talking about a fair amount of personal space and everyone treats their own space in a unique way. Some of us will whizz through the bathroom in the morning while others can easily spend more than an hour there. The materials and colours that you need for your new bathroom can alter quite widely depending on the amount of time you tend to spend in your bathroom. Do you want it to be easily accessbile when it comes to reaching for cleaning products or hair products, or do you want a more relaxed and minimalistic feel to your bathroom design? Do you want bright and fun colours, or more muted and natural tones? Talk to your designer about your concerns regarding bathroom usage at the very beginning to make sure you get the bathroom design you want.

How old are you?

At first, this may seem to be a rather invasive question, but just give it some thought. As we get older, our needs change and that applies to the bathroom also. Perhaps you are close to retirement, and even though you are fit and healthy now, at some point you will potentially need to consider installing grab bars that can double up as somewhere to hang those towels while you are soaking in your luxury tub. The point here is that your bathroom needs to work for you and not the other way around. If your bathroom designer is talented and willing to listen to your wishes, they should be able to create a set of facilities that will suit you as you age gracefully.
