7 points you should consider Before Starting Your Bathroom Renovation

Remodelling your bathroom is one of the most important projects when it comes to home improvement. Everyone spends a considerable amount of time in the bathroom so make sure it is a pleasurable experience. Below are some points for your consideration:

  1. Determine the aim with your renovation:- The first step when renovating is what do you want to achieve? What is the main objective of renovation – utilisation of space, adding more functionality, specific lifestyle needs or creating a wow experience. You should communicate your vision to your project handler.
  2. Visualise all your design elements:- Before going ahead you should collect samples of materials and colours. Create a mood board to help you see how the various design elements will come together.
  3. Choose Quality Fixtures :- The fixtures you choose in your bathroom will affect the look and feel of the room. You should  consider styling elements such as undermount or top mount sinks, waterfall taps, soft-close hinges and chrome detailing around tiles.
  4. Be inspired by timeless trends:- You should get in touch with the  latest design trends through the internet, magazines or bathroom showrooms. Do you want a squarer modern sanitary ware or rounded and traditional?
  5. Design your space around your footprint:-  It’s important  to research your choice of appliances based on your space because their dimensions will play a vital role in the overall layout of the bathroom.
  6. Select Durable Flooring:-  Water-resistant, non slip, durable flooring are advisable for bathrooms and always ensure everything is sealed and secured too. Do the research and gain the appropriate knowledge to enjoy your bathroom in the long run.
  7. Hang A Stylish Mirror:- A stylish Mirror is the focal point and these days they are available with LED lights, sensored on/off switches and can even stay mist free!

Stylish Bathroom Design Ideas For kids

Designing a bathroom can be very rewarding. It doesnt matter if you are renovating your existing bathroom or starting from scratch. Try to think of the theme, colors & decoration. If you do this then things are more likely to match and you are sure to create that wow factor. So if you are designing a bathroom for your kids read these suggestions:-

  1. Install Downsized Bathroom:-  First thing that one should remember is the height of the bathroom fixtures, these should be at child level. Install Lower sinks, soft flooring and a fun decor.
  2. Bathroom Themes :- There are different themes for childrens bathrooms. You can choose themes like an underwater experience, jungles ,princess or pirates. You may want to use stickers that can be removed in due course.
  3. Bathroom Colours:-  Choose colour that matches the theme you have selected. Children prefer bright colours and you can also paint images on wall that suit your theme.
  4. Fixtures:-  Choose fixtures that will create a friendly and safe environment for your child. If your child is younger then use a soft shower curtain and when they grow up then you can install hard glass door. Their should be enough storage space in the form of racks and cupboards.
  5. Safety and Accessibility:-  Safety is one of the important point, choose a non slip bath tub and non slip bath mats. Use rounded ended bathroom hooks and counter taps which can’t hurt your child.

Restoring An Old Or Period Home: Heating, Plumbing And Energy Efficiency

Like the UK as a whole Solihull has some wonderful period houses – with some of the oldest housing stock in Europe. Buying an old property for renovation can be an exciting way to get the best of both worlds – the traditional look and feel of a historic home, with the advantages in comfort and convenience of a modern build.

Planning your improvements
Depending on the condition of your property there can be many aspects to consider: damp proofing can be important for an older building, timber preservation may be vital to the structural integrity of the house, and electrical systems will undoubtedly need updating.

One key area for work, if you want a period home with modern comforts, is energy efficiency, heating and plumbing.

The energy use of your home, along with attaining an even comfortable temperature will depend on the level of insulation you can achieve, and the quality of your hot water and central heating systems.

Our tips for getting the best from your systems include:

  • Make sure you find the right boiler for your property – there are many highly energy efficient units on the market, but make sure the one you choose has enough capacity for your home.
  • Find a highly recommended plumber and gas engineer for all your system and boiler installation needs. A good installation firm will be able to take care of all your plumbing requirements, including fitting your new bathroom.
  • Think carefully about the temperature controls on your new system – room thermostats will give you the greatest degree of control and allow you to set the main thermostat slightly higher for better overall performance.

Guide to bathroom design and installation – for Solihull and further afield

If you are thinking of replacing your suite or going for the full redesign, it’s a great step to take – new bathrooms add value and appeal to your home, not to mention making day to day life more fun.

But this kind of work can take time, money, and needs good decision making to ensure a satisfactory outcome; choosing the right company to carry out the redesign and fit can make all the difference.

Designing an en suite, cloakroom or family bath that suits you
Getting the design right is key to success, and for that you need to have a clear idea of what you want. Popular designs right now include spa style bathrooms, with clean contemporary lines and a minimalist feel, or hotel style with added luxury touches.

This calm, clutter free style might be right for you, or you might be thinking incorporating a splash of colour, or period features such as Victorian taps or a roll-top bath.

Facilities that meet your needs
Before you go shopping for your new bathroom in Solihull, consider how you and your family use your existing facilities:

  • Do you need a separate shower?
  • Are towels on the floor an ongoing problem?
  • Is there enough storage?
  • Is there enough light?
  • Could you benefit from an additional W.C or shower room downstairs?

These are all aspects of design and use that can be considered when thinking about your installation.
