The bathroom in our home is one room that is often overlooked, as let’s be honest, we do not spend a lot of our time in this room of our house. However, it is one room that you should look to plan well, and that goes for the layout as well as the décor. If you are looking to redesign your bathroom in your home, then you should look at some of the design inspirations that can be found on the House & Garden website, where you may be able to get some good ideas to incorporate into your bathroom in your home.

What Facilities Do You Require?

You may think that this is a redundant question as everyone needs the same things in their bathrooms. However, each home has a differing amount of space to play with, so you will need to design your bathroom layout, bearing this in mind. There are quite a few options for you to consider.

• How many sinks do you require?

• Do you need a bath?

• Do you need a shower?

• What kind of toilet do you want?

• Do you need a bidet?

• Do you want a hot tub?

When you know what it is that you want in your bathroom, you can then start the process of looking for all your bathroom accessories including showers from a trade and retail supplier.

Work Out Your Colour Scheme

When you know what the layout of your bathroom is going to be roughly, you will then need to work out the colour scheme that you are going to implement. You find that modern bathroom fittings and fixtures come in a wide variety of different colours, so it should be possible to source the fixings that you need in a colour that pleases your sense of taste. Once you know what the bathroom is going to look like in your mind’s eye, you will then need to install the fixtures and fittings, and this is something that you can either get an expert to do for you, or if you have advanced DIY experience, you can do this yourself.

Finding A Reputable Contractor

There are many excellent websites that you can use to check the credentials of potential contractors, and one of the most popular ones is Checkatrade, where you can find loads of contractors within your local area, and you also get the advantage of being able to read their previous customers reviews about them. One thing that you need to bear in mind with these types of reviews sites though is that the companies pay for their listing on the website, so it is within the websites own interests to make sure that their clients look appealing as possible.

Doing The Work Yourself

If you are going to do the work yourself then this will require more planning, you will first need to ensure that you purchase all the supplies that you need, as well as also making sure that you have all the tools that you will require for the job. Make sure that you plan things thoroughly to ensure that you have everything in place before you start the job. Remember, the bathroom is an essential room in your home that everybody needs access to, so when planning the redesign of your bathroom make sure that you do the job as quickly as possible, reducing the impact that it will have on both you and your family.
