Renovations are stressful enough without having to worry about something going wrong. The last thing you want is for the final result to look different than what you expected, which is why designing certain spaces like bathrooms should be left to the professionals at Aqua Bath & Lighting to ensure perfection.

When it comes to bathroom design, there are so many aspects that need to be considered such as different types of materials, style, lighting, and fixtures to name a few. It’s easy to get lost in the design process and make the following mistakes:

While style is definitely important, remember that functionality should be your main concern. There’s no point in having a pretty bathroom if it doesn’t actually serve a purpose. The design has to be relative to the space that you have so if the tub or sink you had your eye on is too large, do not try to force it in the bathroom as this will affect the space negatively. Work with the size and space you have and select designs accordingly.

Set a budget and stick to it as best you can. There may be some adjustments that have to be made during the process; however, having a number in mind right from the start will help you select items within that budget and help you stay on track. Incorporating a buffer into your budget never hurts because a design and renovation project can sometimes produce unexpected problems you may need to fix or update in the process.

Choose designs that make sense for your home and lifestyle. This is a space that is going to be used every single day and in most cases by multiple people. If you have children, keep that in mind when designing your bathroom as it could make a difference in certain areas and aspects. Optimize the space based on your needs and remember that functionality should be your main goal. Beautiful fixtures will definitely help, just make sure they are not in the way.

Lastly, while selecting tiles and paint colours are exciting and fun, aspects such as plumbing, electrical components and ventilation should be assessed before any of the other designing process begins. Without these things, a bathroom cannot exist and the wall colour will not matter. Make sure everything, down to the water pressure, works properly so that the planning and designing does not go to waste. The last thing you want is to have to renovate all over again.
