For one of the smallest rooms in the house, it’s surprising how much thought is needed to pull off a Brisbane bathroom renovation successfully.
Unlike the average bedroom, the bathroom is packed full of options. Here are five things to keep in mind when planning your next bathroom renovation and selecting fixtures and fittings.
1. How to choose a toilet
If your Brisbane bathroom renovation includes a new toilet, there is a surprising range of choices. Choose to save on space by installing a hanging toilet or building the cistern into the wall. You also have different pan types, including S-traps that connect to the floor and P-traps attached to the wall. Your current bathroom will have the plumbing to suit the toilet type, so careful consideration will be required if you are planning for a new kind.
2. How to choose a bathroom basin
The efficient use of space is vital in a bathroom renovation. The basin is an important location and so needs some thought. You will want a sink that’s big enough for a multipurpose area used for everything from face washing and cleaning teeth. Large families may want to consider dual basins, so everyone has some space during the morning rush.
3. Choosing tiles for your Brisbane bathroom renovation
You are spoiled for choice when it comes to tiles. You will need to consider size, as well as colour and material. If you’re mixing and matching to create a unique space, keep your choices to a minimum – no more than three different types is optimal. You will also need to make sensible choices if you are planning on selling at some point. Tile colours and styles can age and quickly go out of fashion if you opt for trendy designs.
4. Let there be light
Lighting can make or break a bathroom design. Using different layers of lighting will make the bathroom space more versatile. Think about the type of lighting you need in the different areas, such as accent lighting to highlight bathroom features, vanity lighting for makeup and shaving, and mood lighting for relaxing in a warm tub.
5. Brisbane bathroom renovators
Choosing who does your Brisbane bathroom renovation is perhaps one of the most critical aspects of creating your dream bathroom. Choose only experienced bathroom renovators who are fully licensed and registered and can handle your bathroom renovation from design to installation.
