In many Australian homes, the bathroom is certainly one of the smallest rooms in the house but it is certainly one of the most important. It is the place where we spend a great deal of our time every day and it is definitely the most popular room on the weekends.
You will regularly find a queue outside the bathroom on a night out and so if you are intending to do a bathroom refurbishment or create a completely new one, you need to get it right because it will be a number of years before you get another chance.
There are some essentials for a new bathroom that you can’t leave out like a bathroom vanity and you need to choose wisely when it comes to other things like fixtures and finishes. If you would like some guidance in this regard then the following are some of the top tips to help you to create the perfect bathroom.
Keep the original layout
You really need to work with the space that you have because if you start adding to the current space then you could end up spending a lot more money than you first anticipated for your new cozy bathroom. If it is your wish to create more room then go for a toilet, sink and shower that are specially made for smaller spaces.
Create the right focal points
When choosing fixtures and fittings, pick a theme and stick to it. If you would like a more vintage style bathroom then choose things that are from a certain era. For a more modern, sleek look there are so many options to choose from and you really can’t go wrong no matter what you choose.
Maybe take out the bath
When you think about it, you might use the bath 5 to 10 times a year and for the rest of the time, it is just taking up space. Consider removing it altogether and this will provide you with a lot more space to move around in the bathroom area. A walk in shower would be a much better option and a shower is a lo easier to keep clean than a big bathtub.
Create lots of light
Maybe add a window or a skylight to the room to get more natural light coming into the room. This makes the space appear larger and encourages more sunlight to shine through. A large mirror is always a good idea as this allows all of this new light to move easily around the room.
Always be sure to stay within government rules and guidelines when completing any kind of bathroom refurbishment
This is a room that you are going to be in a lot so design it with yourself in mind at all times. Do what is going to be comfortable for you and choose colors of paint and tiles designs that match your personality. Try to stay within your budget as you may get carried away and start adding things that are going to drive the price upwards. If you follow the above four tips then you can’t really go too far wrong.
