  • By Kate Williams

When you decide to renovate your bathroom, there are a lot of steps you need to take to ensure you create the best space possible. A few key features do have the ability to transform your space. No matter how big or small your bathroom renovation is, careful planning and well-thought-out choices are essential.

In this article, we will explore all the key tips you need to know before you commence your bathroom renovation. Following these tips will ensure you create an amazing space that you’ll love to spend time in. The tips to follow include:

Plan, Plan, Plan

First things first, you need to create a proper plan. Plan the renovation from start to finish, with a detailed timeline as well as budget. What are the key aspects that you are going to update in your bathroom? There are several important factors to include in your plan, like layout, storage, fixtures, lighting, and more.

Once you have your plan, make sure you share it with any relevant stakeholders, like the plumber, builder, etc. It is also a good idea to continually check your plan as the renovation continues to determine if you are on track or falling behind in terms of timing and funding.

Functional Features

While it is natural to focus on how the features will look in your bathroom, it is also important that these features are as functional as possible. Layout is key here. If you place important features too close together, it may create an unfunctional space. For example, if the shower is too close to the bath, you might not be able to open the shower door completely, or something as simple as where the toilet paper holder is located.

It's always a great idea to incorporate storage area within the furniture.

Storage is also key when it comes to functionality. Make sure there is enough storage which will allow you to keep the space as organized as possible. There are many features out there that can help you save space, which is important if you don’t have a large bathroom to work with. Finding each feature its own space and using high-quality shower materials is needed to ensure your bathroom reaches its full potential.

Chromotherapy Shower Heads

If luxury is the name of the game, you simply cannot go past a chromotherapy showerhead. Also known as color therapy, chromotherapy involves using colored lights to assist in promoting both physical and mental well-being. Creating a spa-like experience is easy with this type of technology.

Incorporate Natural Light

This can be difficult to do, but it is very important to incorporate as much natural light as possible. Think about where is the best place to include windows, light tubes, or even a skylight to bring in natural light.

Good lighting will give your bathroom a sense of space and tidiness.

Privacy is a concern in bathrooms, so it is a good idea to add frosted glass as well. Even something as simple as adding mirrors in the correct place can give the effect of even more natural light than there actually is.
