Bathroom Design Essentials - What You Should Consider When Designing, Building and Renovating Your Ultimate Bathroom - Part 3
Over the last 2 weeks we considered a number of factors that you should consider when designing and renovating bathrooms. (Read Part 1 of Bathroom Design Essentials and Part 2 of Bathroom Design Essentials for more.)
The design of your bathroom should consider the following:
I hope that you've found the last 3 articles informative. It is important to carefully plan bathroom layouts. Look at alternatives. Visit bathroom accessory showrooms to view different baths, toilets and taps. Consider alternative tiles and how they'll fit with the fittings and fixtures you choose. Consider alternative light fittings. Don't just go for the cheapest. Of course it's also usually not necessary to select the most expensive finishes. Consider the needs of you and your family, what's practical, your budget, and what future buyers will like.
Many bathroom accessory suppliers have facilities to convert your bathroom plans into 3 dimensional colour drawings so you can better visualise what your new bathroom will look like. Some architects and builders even offer virtual reality where it's possible to view your bathroom as if you were walking through the completed bathroom.
Of course it's also important to use reputable contractors, especially for waterproofing, plumbing and tiling (note in future articles I'll discuss what to consider when choosing contractors and later good and bad floor and wall tile layouts). You wouldn't want your dream bathroom ruined by faulty workmanship.
Good luck with your bathroom design and construction.

Very informative. Thanks for the writing. I too have been trying to decide between the rectangular mirror and a circular one for the past few days now, but never know, how the circular design could be used to break up some harsh edges.
