Did you know that the average person spends 3 hours and 9 minutes sitting on the toilet per week? This does not include the time spent bathing, primping and a myriad of other things that we love to use the bathroom for. Just knowing that must be motivation enough to make your bathroom your new favorite. How…? Why don’t you read on to find out tips for designing your dream bathroom?
1. Get your layout in order
Before getting to the fun bits of finding a theme for your bathroom or picking our new bathroom furniture, get the basics right. Start with a scale plan of the space you currently have. Get accurate dimensions for windows, doors and other features that will most likely affect your design. You can look at many layouts that are compatible with your space and choose one that you deem best for you.
2. Get a theme for your dream bathroom
You can have an eclectic bathroom, a country bathroom, a modern bathroom or a classic bathroom. There are so many ideas for different themes online that you can consider for your bathroom. If none of the ones you see tickle your fancy, it’s a good idea to find a custom theme. The theme you choose must reflect your personality and also be functional and sustainable. If you share your bathroom with children, take this into account as not all themes are kid-friendly.
3. Decide between a shower or bathtub.
Most people would love to have both a bathroom and a shower, but this is not always the case. If you are one of the lucky ones, then this bit is easy. Get both! If not, consider what your preference and how much space you have in your bathroom. You can also refer to your floor plan at this point. Check how compatible whatever choice you’re leaning towards is compatible with your water pipes. Decide on the size of the bathtub or shower you want as well.
4. Get complementary bathroom furniture
Picking the right furniture that is cohesive is very important. Focus on key details in each piece that ties the whole bathroom together. For example, if you have chosen a Victorian theme for your bathroom, you can get tufted benches, small Victorian chairs, and ornate mirror frames. If you are not sure of how to match different parts of your bathroom together, go online and look at pictures of what others with the same theme chose for their bathrooms.
