Concept to Completion – The first steps in the Bathroom journey!

Posted by 17th-Jul-2023

After looking at the journey page hopefully, the creative thoughts are flowing through the veins.

The world is your oyster and there is a vast selection of products to choose from.

Sometimes too much choice, therefore Blaines are here to help!  we have created a simple and easy list of items to consider when you start out on your bathroom journey.

It really helps our design team to gather as much relevant information as possible to ensure a successful bathroom design and renovation process.

What are the main reasons for wanting to start a bathroom project?

Where has the motivation to start this project come from, is the current room tiered and needs freshening up, has there been a change of circumstances with the client?
What other goals will help tailor the design and recommendations accordingly?

How many people will be using the bathroom?

A family bathroom or an ensuite or a Toilet Room.
This will help the design to accommodate various users.

Are there any specific features or fixtures that could be included in the new bathroom?

There are many things that can go into a bathroom – consider what products you want, use and need – a bath, shower, storage, WC, heated towel rail, accessories

What is the preferred style for the bathroom?

This could include modern, traditional, rustic, minimalist, or any other design style.
Consider if the room going to be fully tiled, or half tiled, or is Shower Wall going to be used along with painting and decorating.

Are any colour preferences for the bathroom?

Colours can significantly impact the overall look and feel of the space. The colours of flooring and tiling can be longer lasting than the colour of paint and accessories.

Are there any storage needs for the bathroom?

Storage comes in many forms, such as vanity basin units, wall units, and tall units. It helps to think about what items you want to store in the bathroom to what storage can go in.

Are there any accessibility requirements to consider?

Does the bath need to be removed for a walk-in accessible shower; are mobility aids such as grab bars needed? Would a comfort height toilet be more suited for the environment?

What is your budget for the bathroom renovation?

Knowing the budget will help narrow down the design options and materials.

Are there any specific bathroom fixtures or materials chosen?

Such as manufacturers, materials, and products. If so, share any samples or pictures to get a better idea of the customer’s taste.
Have a look at our bathroom products page to get some ideas.

Are there any specific concerns or challenges with the current bathroom?

Understanding pain points can help address them in the new design.

Has there been any water leakage or moisture-related issues in the current bathroom?

Understanding past problems can help the designers prevent them in the new design.
Has there been previous leaks or have there been issues with mould and ventilation?

Are there any specific lighting preferences or requirements for the bathroom?

Adequate lighting is crucial for functionality and ambience.
