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.
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?
A family bathroom or an ensuite or a Toilet Room.
This will help the design to accommodate various users.
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
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.
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.
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.
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?
Knowing the budget will help narrow down the design options and materials.
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.
Understanding pain points can help address them in the new design.
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?
Adequate lighting is crucial for functionality and ambience.
