My go-to reaction when it comes to remodelling or redecorating any space of mine from my office cubicle to my bedroom is “oh, that’s pretty -I gotta have it!”. That’s probably why my walls have had four different colours in three years, and I have countless framed prints in piles all around my home. When it comes to the bigger remodelling aspects, such as my master bathroom, I needed to force myself to slow down, and realise what would work best, to make sure that I’d love it forever. Because there is no way I can afford to redo my bathroom every year, no matter how many cost-friendly bathroom fitters Bexhill has to offer!
My friends offered no sympathy in my inability to decide on just one design for my bathroom, but they were kind enough to offer advice on how to find the best solution:
Make a Detailed Plan
Drawing out the type of layout I most wanted, with different types of fixtures, flooring, and other materials I wanted to use, proved to be very helpful. Planning around existing plumbing ensured an easier construction process. I had about five or six different designs, and a lot of the same items showed up, making the final product the perfect combination of everything I wanted.
Don’t Make Purely Esthetic Choices
I am prone to buying something because it looks good, only to find out after the warranty expires that it doesn’t work the way it should. They key to knowing which fixtures to buy is to be shameless while shopping. Lay down in the bathtubs, sit on the toilet, lift the toilet seat up, twist each faucet handle, swing open and slam each cabinet door shut on every display. It’s not only useful, but cathartic as well!
From toilets to ventilation, it’s important to consider more than the visuals of the bathroom. Looking into low flush toilets is a great investment to make sure you’re not wasting water. Adding windows or extra ventilation systems (should your bathroom not have any or enough) keeps moisture and mildew out of your walls. Using kitchen and bathroom specific paints will also give you the colour you want, with the protection your walls need.
Multitask (If Necessary)
Remodelling my kitchen was being considered, until I realised I would just be prolonging the length of construction time in my home. There are companies like this kitchen fitter in Hastings that doubles as kitchen and bathroom fitter in the Bexhill area. Redoing both a kitchen and bathroom simultaneously can sometimes save on cost, and will definitely be more efficient in terms of productivity, and limiting the construction time in your house.
No matter where you live, deciding on a quality bathroom fitter can be difficult. Almost as difficult as finalising exactly how you’ll be decorating your bathroom! Hopefully the above list can help out (even if only a little) to make your remodelling process a little easier.
