What To Consider When Installing Your New Bathroom

So you've decided to get a new bathroom installed - that's great news! An updated bathroom is a great way to add a new lease of life to your home and living space. But what's next? With countless design options, plumbing issues and budgets to manage, we're here to help simplify the process.

Top 4 things to consider when installing a new bathroom

We've outlined the four most important things to think about and consider when it comes to installing a new bathroom.

1. Budget and planning

While it's probably the most mundane part of designing your new bathroom, it's important to take into consideration your budget at the initial planning stage. Before you get carried away with buying the most expensive and high-tech features and fittings, make sure you establish a realistic financial framework and prioritise your must-haves over unnecessary expenses. Don't forget that you can always encounter unexpected issues along the way, so have a contingency in place.

2. Space and storage

No matter the size of your bathroom, proper space planning and execution is essential. You should account for doorways, windows and plumbing locations - hidden pipes and drains dictate where certain elements can go, for example. Any reputable installer like ourselves would be happy to help configure the most optimal layout for your new bathroom. Fixtures such as mirrored cupboards and walk-in showers are a great way to save on space.

3. Ventilation

It's vital to ensure that you maintain proper ventilation in your bathroom to avoid excess moisture, mould growth and unpleasant odours. We recommend you invest in a high-quality extractor fan and make sure it vents directly outside your home. Wherever possible, you should keep your windows open.

4. Lighting

Proper lighting is essential to creating a bright and inviting space in your bathroom. We recommend you look at layering different light sources if possible - a well-lit environment can make even the smallest of bathrooms feel spacious.
