Top 10 Tips to Create Your Dream Bathroom Part 2

In the previous article, the first 5 tips to create your dream bathroom were very much centred around planning and ideas. From setting budgets to using your imagination some very important points were covered. In part 2 we get down to some of the nuts and bolts that can be very easily overlooked and where choosing a first-class bathroom design and fitment company is essential. The final 5 points to consider when creating your dream bathroom is where experience really pays off and where Gary Fullwood and his team become the most important part of your kitchen.

Tip #6 Airflow and ventilation

Bathrooms generate heat and moisture and these combined can become a nightmare. The biggest challenge with even the largest of British bathrooms is ventilation. Without Sufficient ventilation moisture from condensation and steam can begin to cause problems. Firstly, with all the steam the bathroom becomes uncomfortable and mirrors become unusable, surfaces become wet and the moisture remains only to go cold and start to smell if not dried up quickly. Mould and mildew poorly ventilated bathrooms and the bathroom soon becomes the perfect home for all kinds of bugs. Very often a window or two in a bathroom is just not enough and not everyone likes to open the windows on a cold winter’s day. Taking time to consider options for improved ventilation is vital to make your dream bathroom one you will love to use.

Tip #7 Lighting

As with every room in the house the bathroom needs the right lighting. Having the right lighting in your bathroom can make sure it is a dream bathroom, not a nightmare. Daylight is always a preferred source of light and with windows fitted in the ceiling, these can act as superb ventilation as well. But choosing the lighting is not as straightforward as just sticking a single light in the middle of the ceiling. With the introduction of LEDs, mood lighting takes on a life of its own. Of course, you need lighting to see by, to shave and put on makeup. But when you are soaking in a bath you need lighting that helps you relax even further. When it comes to lighting a good bathroom designer will wow you with some of the most innovative lighting solutions on the market.

Tip #8 Storage

For many people, a lack of storage is a top reason to redesign or replace a bathroom, so when creating a bathroom from scratch including as much storage as possible makes sense. Bathroom storage has a come a long way from a small medicine cabinet and maybe a cupboard that also contained the emersion heater commonly called the airing cupboard. Bathroom design has followed in the footsteps of kitchen designs and innovate, even quirky, storage ideas now often define a bathroom.

Tip #9 Colour Matters

Back in the late 70s and early 80s, the avocado everything was the rage, you will be amazed how much of this is still in use today. You may have a preference for a certain colour, it may be your personality or just a colour you like. However, choosing the right colour for your bathroom is not quite as straightforward as you might expect. Depending on the size and style of your bathroom certain colours work and others simply won’t. A good bathroom designer will help you choose, and you will be pleasantly surprised at some of the suggestions.

Tip #10

Finally, the top tip for creating a dream bathroom is right under your feet. The flooring in your bathroom is an important consideration. With so many choices of tiles, stone and vinyl, plus more choosing the correct flooring is not always easy. You need to consider safety as well as cleaning, bathmats to soak up excess water can be an option and it all boils down to taste and of course your budget.
