Planning a new bathroom can be an exciting prospect, but it can also be a little daunting. Although many bathroom designs may look sleek and attractive, they may not be the best fit for your need. Here are some important elements of design, you should consider for your renovation.
While those bathroom designs in magazines may look fantastic, they may not be practical in an actual home. Remember that your bathroom is a vital room in your home, so the space needs to offer maximum functionality and an attractive design. If your bathroom design is a little too basic, you may find that it ends up being cluttered with niknaks to make it more functional. You need to consider the unique requirements of your household and home layout. Although sleek, glass surfaces may look wonderful, if you have small children, they are likely to end up covered in fingerprints and be at risk of damage. In this scenario, a better idea is to incorporate surfaces that are easy to wipe down that still look fantastic into your plans.
Storage is always an important feature in bathroom designs, so it needs careful consideration. Large cabinets can allow you to store everything neatly away, but if not carefully planned it can look a little sparse and cold. Open storage and shelving can be a solution, but it can leave the room feeling cluttered and untidy. Ideally, there will be a mixture of storage options to create a happy medium. You can also plan your storage options into dead space in the room to make the most of the area available. This can be invaluable in smaller bathrooms and make larger rooms feel even more spacious.
Although a hot pink bath may be right on trend, you need to consider how it will date. A bathroom renovation is a vigorous process so you are not likely to want to have to update every year or two. For this reason, you need to consider the longevity of your chosen design. For an ultra modern design, choose neutral fixtures and allow theultra moderndesign to be reflected in elements which are more easily changed. For example, it is far easier to replace a shelving unit and flooring rather than needing to replace the entire bathroom suite. These are just some considerations, that we at Matrix Bathrooms are more than happy to talk you through in more detail to make sure you get the best bathroom design for your needs.
Colour and Texture:
Finally, you need to consider colour. As discussed above, colour can have a massive impact on the longevity of your bathroom design. However, this doesn’t mean that you should opt for a very neutral colour palette. Whites are a popular choice but they may need to be warmed up a little. Adding pops of colour in decorative accessories, towels, and shower curtains can immediately brighten up the design.
If youprefer a neutral colour scheme for a clean and sleek look, you could consider how textures could also warm the look. Soft towels, different finishesand textures can make your white design feel more homely and welcoming.
