Asking a Bathroom Expert about Space

Inadequate Storage

Storage is often last on the list or missed entirely when people are renovating a bathroom. It’s important to think about what you want to store. Ample storage space is a must for any vanity unit, while looks should never be neglected in order to ensure that the vanity you select matches the rest of the bathroom. The right vanity will combine good looks and handy storage options with plenty of usable bench space. 

Cash constraints

Setting yourself a budget and sticking to it will save you money as bathroom renovations are known to blow-out. Do research by checking online and visiting your local Bathroom Expert to see what’s on offer to ensure that your bathroom budget is feasible.

Spatial Planning

Knowing your bathroom size can allow the experts to help you layout the bathroom and consider the features you want in your bathroom. The bathroom has to be liveable, so do you have space for a toilet roll holder or even a hand towel rail?

It’s ideal to have at least one bath in the house, but you don’t need one in every bathroom. It is popular to have a standalone bath such as a freestanding bath which are usually the centre piece to every bathroom.

The shower is another feature to consider for a practical and attractive bathroom as it gets used the most. From choosing a screen for privacy to deciding on a shower head to sourcing the right water flow. You can choose a fixed or hand-held shower head, waterfall showers and high-low pressure jets. In terms of shower screens, do you want a framed, frameless or perhaps no screen at all? The expert can provide you the specifications on a number of shower screen options so you can utilise the space of your bathroom.


Don’t overlook the importance of lighting in creating a welcoming and refreshing space. The bathroom is one area of the house where it’s important to be able to see clearly, but where you can also relax in comfort. One other thing to remember when choosing lighting is energy usage - the right choices can make a noticeable difference to your power bill. In conjunction, utilising natural light can enhance the style you are trying to portray for your Bathroom.
