Planning the Perfect Bathroom

Planning the Perfect Bathroom

Whether you’re adding a new bathroom to your home or remodelling an existing one, it’s important to make sure you plan carefully as bathrooms are long-term rather than short-term projects. You may refresh your living room every year, however, you won’t want to be doing the same with kitchens or bathrooms. Whether you carry out the work yourself or hire a contractor to do it for you, there are somecriticalpoints to bear in mind. Here are a few tips to help you achieve the cool bathroom of your dreams.

Protect your investment
Making improvements often means undertaking substantial alterations to your home, rather than simply refreshing the décor. It’s vital to take steps to protect the investment you are making. Whether you’re tackling the work yourself or using a contractor make sure that you have insurance coverage for common home repairs. You owe yourself the financial security of knowing that any unexpected problems will be covered. If you check out several home warranty companies, you should be able to identify one with great testimonials and an excellent company profile that meets your needs.

Bathroom layout
Once you know you’re covered for any repairs, you can begin by planning the layout of your new bathroom. When you’re moving furniture around a room, it’s quite possible to try out a couch, for example, in one place and then decide later that it would be better positioned somewhere else. That is not the case in your bathroom, as the fixtures and fittings have to tie in with the plumbing system in your home.

So, if you want to do something radically different to your current plumbing arrangement, it could well be an expensive job. On the other hand, flexible piping has made a big difference to plumbing possibilities and, if plumbing is not your profession, then as long as you consult an expert you may be able to achieve the design of your dreams without it costing a fortune.

Dealing with pipe work
Even though flexible pipe work can make bathroom design a bit easier, you must work out where the pipes will go as a result of the layout you’ve chosen, and then plan how to hide away the elements that don’t need to be seen. That is where a plumbing professional can be of help to you because understanding how pipework functions and what access may be needed if anything goes wrong or requires maintenance is vital. It’s more than a bit tricky if you’ve designed a fabulously beautiful bathroom only to find there’s no easy way to clear a blocked drain or identify and remedy another plumbing problem.

Lighting
Let’s assume you have agreed on the ideal layout for your purposes, whether you are creating an intimate en suite facility or a larger, shared family bathroom. Before you take the final decisions about the positioning of fittings, consider the importance of both natural and artificial lighting in your bathroom. Like kitchens, bathrooms benefit from cheerful, upbeat lighting, so make the most of your window spaces and consider installing plenty of brightly shining, recessed lights in your bathroom ceiling.

Textures
Fashions in bathroom design change just as they do for living spaces and bedrooms, so look for some trends that are likely to last when you decide on surfaces and finishes. It has to be said that tiles, although they’ve been around for many decades, are being supplanted today by alternatives such as panels and faux marble. Panels in stone resin have become particularly popular as they’re hygienic and you won’t need to spend the same amount of time cleaning them as, for example, the grouting between tiles. Faux marble has taken bathroom design by storm because it is stain resistant and non-porous, plus it comes in a variety of patterns, just like the real thing. In fact, real marble can be problematic in bathrooms when it comes to resisting water and stains, whereas faux marble performs better in all respects.

Finishing touches
So, with your warranty protection in place, your layout finalized, your pipework rationalized, and the lighting and finishes chosen, the final items to consider include whatever theme or genre you want your bathroom to reflect. That will affect your decisions about colors and the style of your fittings, particularly washbasins and baths. This is such a personal element that no one should decide for you. Instead, think of what might suit your home, and then go for what works for you. That might be vintage/heritage, contemporary or mid-century, or maybe you will end up inventing your own style and creating a unique bathroom.

Three Easy Upgrades for Small Bathrooms

Three Easy Upgrades for Small Bathrooms
So you’ve just moved from a flat into your very first free-standing home. Congratulations! While there’s nothing like the thrill of finally having a place to truly call one’s own, many new homeowners find themselves going through a crash course in how to maintain a home and perform any necessary upgrades during the months leading up to and immediately following their first home purchase.

This applies in particular to homes more than 40 or 50 years old and which may be in need of a new roof, electrical upgrades or something as simple as a kitchen or bathroom upgrade to make the space as liveable and user-friendly as possible. The good news is that even a relatively small bathroom can be improved upon without spending an exorbitant amount. Following are just a few examples of how this can be done:

Smaller vanity
If the bathroom in your new home is rather small, then the first thing you will want to consider is the amount of space taken up by the vanity or any other ground-level bathroom furniture. A well-appointed bathroom is for nought if it’s impossible to move around in, so ask yourself if there are ways in which to create more space. If the vanity takes up a significant amount of space at ground or waist level, consider replacing it with a narrower one with a basin above the countertop. These increasingly popular models, available from bathroom supply companies such as Vitra bathrooms and Hansgrohe bathrooms, take greater advantage of vertical space than many of the more common designs. Many early adopters have even found the height of the basin more user-friendly in that one need not bend as far forward to rinse after brushing teeth or washing hands.

Shelving
Even if space at waist level is limited, the total amount of usable space in your bathroom need not be. Although smaller is better when it comes to bathroom furniture which may have potentially impede movement within the bathroom, this typically means having less space in which to store essential items within those pieces of furniture. One overcomes this problem by maximising the use of the available wall space with shelving and attractive cabinetry. By taking advantage of spaces above toilets and even inside the shower cubicle, you will be able to store everything from bath towels to shaving cream to any decorative objects you may wish to include to make the space more inviting. If they fit the colour scheme, the added shelving and cabinets themselves will also make the space more attractive.

Lighter colours
There’s nothing like an outdated wallpaper pattern to make a bathroom – or any other room in the home – seem small, uninviting and perhaps even unsanitary. Luckily, this is generally one of the easiest problems to solve in a bathroom. In this case, the simple solution is to use lighter colours to brighten the space, create the illusion of a larger space and even make it feel cleaner and more inviting after, say, a strenuous workout at the gym or an afternoon of toiling away in your new garden. A couple of coats of high-gloss paint are all it takes! If you feel more ambitious, consider covering most or all of the wall space with light-coloured tiles or another wall covering which will help to prevent the growth of mould and mildew.

Modernise Your Home with a Luxury Bathroom

Modernise Your Home with a Luxury Bathroom

If it has been years since you moved into your current home and you are just now considering your options for a bathroom remodel, the current trend may seem a bit overwhelming – especially if your taste is very traditional. The good news, though, is that the décor of the newly re-modelled bathroom need not match the rest of the house, so if you are planning a bathroom remodel, don’t feel compelled to also bring in an interior designer who can make the rest of your home look as modern as your new designer bathroom.

It’s a well-known fact that kitchens and bathrooms are the most worthwhile investments for increasing your home’s value and the odds that it will actually sell if you ever decide to put it on the market.

Simple colours, optional contrast
While 2017 home remodels have been all about bright colours, kitchens and bathrooms are both lighter and more austere in terms of colour scheme. Not sure you like the idea of a mostly white and grey bathroom? Then simply add a few bold black accents – perhaps even a whirlpool bath! Intermittent black floor tiles and black fixtures will also stand out boldly against a white or off-white wall, as will any bright chrome fixtures or trim. The current trend is modern chic, so play around with contrast if that’s your preference.

Modern technology
One feature of today’s designer bathroom that may take some more traditional-minded homeowners by surprise is the incorporation of modern technology, including Bluetooth for wireless sound systems, LED lighting and more. LED lighting is becoming commonplace in new buildings and homes due to the drop in price over the last several years as well as the consumer expectation that conventional builders make an effort to increase the sustainability of their products.

The wireless sound system is a sign that Generation Y has arrived and made the incorporation of technology into all aspects of daily life a given rather than an extravagance. Don’t shrug it off as a fad; with future generations taking the latest technology for granted, it’s well worth your while now to begin outfitting your bathroom and other parts of your home to meet the audio-visual standards of today’s twenty-something who, in another ten years or so, might come around with a realtor helping her to find her future home.

Often, simply updating the bathroom furniture or upgrading the shower will do the job. Consider installing Hansgrohe showers which are promoted as being a source of refreshment and relaxation. Gently dousing you in water, vigorously massaging your body and washing away all your negative energy. And yes, they also get you clean.

When planning your bathroom remodel, be sure to find a reputable UK-based retailer that can provide the parts and installation to make the designer bathroom of your dreams a reality. PT Ranson offers complete planning, delivery and installation services and will work with you from start to finish to provide you with the designer bathroom that meets your exact specifications at a reasonable price.

A bathroom remodel is a major investment in your home, after all, and we want you to be certain that the sum you invest today will result in a new look for your bathroom that you will love for years to come and that will leave you in a good position to sell if you ever decide to do so.
