Designing Bathroom Renovations

When it comes to updating or designing a new bathroom, here are some things you will need to keep in mind:

  • Consider if you will use the bathroom as a place for relaxing or to “get clean”. If you are going to incorporate a laundry into your bathroom, you may need to install extra plumbing and electricals. Calling in a design professional at this early stage may help you to decide what will work best for you and your household, and ensure that nothing is forgotten.
  • Try to leave existing plumbing and electrical services in place, as these can be very costly to move. If you want to move the shower or bath, for example, consider whether the cost to move the plumbing will be offset by a gain in convenience. If you do need to install new systems, make sure you consult a good plumber or electrician.
  • Water efficiency is another important consideration. Looking at water efficient fittings such as water saving taps and showerheads, dual flush toilets and grey water systems (great for the garden!) will mean that you are helping save precious water and saving money on your water bill. New water-efficient products on the market are vastly improved so using water efficient showerheads does not have to mean a lack of pressure.
  • Heating is another thing to take into account when designing the bathroom and there are several options available, depending on the climate and your needs. There are heated towel rails to warm towels for when you leave the bath or shower, heating lights that will heat the entire bathroom, to heated floors which will completely eliminate the dreaded feeling of stepping onto cold tile. Bathrooms also need sufficient storage. Shelving, cabinetry, recessed wall spaces and tow
  • el racks are all good ways to store essentials such as towels and toiletries.
  • If you want a classic bathroom that will not date, try to stick to a colour palette of neutrals and whites in the main areas – the tiling, bath, shower and walls. You can always update the look seasonally through the use of accent pieces, and well-chosen accents will definitely reflect your personality.
  • Many bathrooms are on the smaller side, especially in established homes, so speaking with the appropriate professionals will help you maximise the space. Some clever tricks for making the space appear larger include using larger tiles, mirrors, clever colours, vertical lines and tiling from the floor to the ceiling.
Bathroom Ventilation and Waterproofing

  • Bathroom ventilation and waterproofing is vital to prevent mould build up and water leakage. The best ways to ensure adequate ventilation is through the installation of exhaust fans and windows that cross-ventilate. However, ensure that your exhaust fan vents the moist air to the outside of the home in order to prevent moist air from causing problems in the roof space.
  • Waterproofing is an important component of your new bathroom. It is vital to ensure that water from the wet areas (the shower, bath and vanity/ies) does not penetrate through the walls or floor and cause damage to the structural integrity of the home or other damage. Waterproofing is done before any tiling or installation of fittings but after the walls and floors has been thoroughly prepared.
  • Ensure that the paint that you choose for the bathroom is able to handle the moisture levels. Semi-gloss or gloss paints are a good choice.
Types of Bathrooms

When you are considering bathroom renovations, there are many styles available to suit any household. Some common types are:

  1. The Retreat: the retreat is a relaxing oasis, almost like having your very own day spa at home. Gentle lighting, a spa, deep bath or luxurious shower, and a calming atmosphere makes the bathroom the perfect place to unwind after a long day.
  2. Minimalist:
  3. High Tech the bathroom of gadget lovers. The bath, spa or shower is the latest on the market and the bathroom features under floor heating, heated towel racks and other gizmos designed to make the bathing experience better. There’s even a plasma TV near the bath!
  4. Utilitarian this bathroom is designed to be used. While still looking attractive, the focus is to have everything easily accessible and to be easily cleaned.
  5. Colonial the deep old-fashioned bathtub and the classic tones of cream. This bathroom is older-style without sacrificing any of the modern amenities.
