There some aspects to bear in mind when you are planning to renovate your bathroom and the tips below may help you.
- Choose off white and neutral colours – The bathroom is usually one of the smallest rooms in a house so you should avoid choosing dark coloured tiles and sanitary ware. Instead opt for white, off-white or neutral colours to make the space seem bigger than it actually is.
- Use frameless shower screens – If you have an older style bathroom, chances are you have one of those frosted glass shower screens, which are bulky and make the area look cramped. If possible, choose a frameless glass shower screen, which will make the bathroom look brighter and more spacious. Their lack of unnecessary joinery also makes them easier to maintain and clean.
- Make use of all available space – Bathroom space is usually a premium and this why you should make the most out of all available nook and crannies such as under the sink so that you can neatly store your items. Ensure that you choose cabinets and drawers that are deep enough to hold items such hair dryers and tall bottles of toiletries. Also, mirror-fronted cabinets are an excellent choice in maximising storage space.
- Install an exhaust fan – Dampness is the number one cause of mould so you should ensure that you have proper ventilation built into your bathroom renovation design to avoid moisture and humidity build-up. One of the best ways is to have an exhaust fan installed to prevent the steam from a hot shower from fogging up the entire bathroom.
