One of the first things to consider when deciding on a new bathroom is first and foremost, how much space do you have to work with? You need to be sure that each item has plenty of space to be installed and once it is installed that there is enough space for the doors to open into the room for example. It is very easy to overlook these things and end up with no space to move in your bathroom once it’s installed. To avoid any potential space issues, make sure to thoroughly measure the room and the items you are considering to be sure that they have enough space to not only fit in the room but also that you have enough room to install them in the first place.
Flooring & Walls
When choosing your bathroom you will need to decide on what type of walls and flooring you are going to want relatively early, on so that you can allow time for it to be fitted before the fixtures are installed. This can of course be done after but if you are replacing the whole suite it is best to replace the floor once the fixtures have been removed.
Things to consider when choosing the floor are deciding on the material. There is a variety of materials and finishes depending on your requirements and budget. This can be a choice form lino to ceramic tiles or treated wood or laminate.
Choosing a material is much the same for the walls. It is most common to choose a type of ceramic tile as they will protect the wall from water damage. Similarly to the floor they are available in all kinds of finishes to suit almost any style of room.
Alternatively you can choose to paint the room with specialist paint designed to be moisture resistant. This won’t protect a wall nearly as well as tiling the walls would however. Many rooms benefit from tiling the most exposed areas to water such as the shower area and splash backs around the sink and you are free to wallpaper the remainder of the room.
