Bathrooms are an essential part of any home. When considering what type of bathroom suites you require, you have to look at the style of your house, and more importantly, the room you have to fill.
There are lots of bathroom websites and showrooms out there so shopping around is always a good idea. Find your style that fits you, and then get a suite to fit the room. Look out for great deals, but don’t get so overwhelmed with them that you end up with a bath tub that won’t fit your room!
The key thing to remember is to measure the space once, then measure it again. It’s surprising how often people only do 1 measurement and when their bathroom arrives find out that it doesn’t fit. This can be a costly mistake so measure 2-3 times just to make sure.
One thing to look out for when buying online or offline, is a classic trick used by companies who offer free delivery, but bump up the prices of their products to reflect this, so again, shop around and work out your best deal, as it won’t always be the one’s offering free delivery or free extras. Ultimately your bathroom is a long term investment and will ultimately add significant value to your property, if done correctly!
How many of use have gone to look round a new property and been put off by an aubergine suite, and grotty tiles?!
Adding features to a bathroom is where you get your main style, a bath tub with traditional taps and embossed square looking bath panels will make the bath look traditional, where as smooth lines and funky taps will give a more modern look. So use these types of features to add your character, even colourful toilet seats can be used to personalise your suite if white isn’t your thing.
However, don’t get put off looking at endless rows of white items which all start to look the same. A good way to do this is by going to showrooms, and seeing how suites look in a bathroom environment, this can also help in working out what style you want for your bathroom. Not all of us have the time to go out and visit showrooms and a lot of websites offer good life style images showing how their bathrooms look.
Once you have chosen your bathroom suite and measured and measured again, its time to get your new bathroom into your home. Check out our plumbing forums for some helpful insight. The main thing is, whatever style you go for, make sure you enjoy your bathroom!
