Bathroom Planning and Design


The best way to begin developing a bathroom plan is to clarify what you want and need. As you are deciding what features your bathroom should include, focus on the specific needs and preferences of the people who will use it.
This bathroom planning guide aims at providing you with bathroom design ideas useful in planning a bath space. These are some basic DIY instructions you may want to review before starting.
Start with first things first. Measure up the bathroom area and make a rough sketch with the fixtures you have, you wish to change, and even fix in case itís a new bathroom. This will help you estimate the exact area you have around to play with. Next thing should fall in place with a realistic budget. Even if you are thinking of redoing the plumbing job, estimate the costs, for it can be expensive. With the budgets and fixtures you want in hand, it would be easy to dwell on ideas and new fittings. It could be a vanity, shower enclosure or a new tub; make sure you think of the space. Itís important to move around too, and you donít want to clutter your bathroom.
Modular bathrooms done in little space are in vogue. There are more people looking for smaller bathrooms fitted with modern amenities. With meticulous and creative thinking, you should be able to fit in the things you desire, say a shower cubicle, for instance.
You get corner shower cubicles that save space and if there is space constraint, you could always use a separate overhead shower cubicle and use curtains to keep away the water splashing.
Tubs come in different shapes too and save your bathroom precious space. Get a deeper bathtub that saves space around the foot-end or baths where you sit straight, saving on the length. For bigger bathrooms, when you have good space on hand, you can play with the space with fewer constraints. Estimate the space, the gadgets and fixtures you plan to add. The saunas, shower cubicles and tubs are all possible, just work on it in a way that helps the space look open. Just let your creativity speak in your planning and design!

Bathroom fittings

ē Faucets

ē Toilet Seats

Toilet seats come in different shapes and sizes. Depending on the available space, you can round up from a choice of elongated, rounded or corner seats. The elongated seat is great for comfort, but pay attention to details and dimensions. You donít want your hands touching the ground when seated. Also, for smaller bathrooms, you can get one of those corner seats that save space.

Taps are functional things and you would like to consider the water flow and temperature control system before you buy. There are designer taps you get that is the perfect combination of style and function.
