Are you considering a bathroom re-design? If so, you are likely considering all the design features that you want and should include in the room.
However, it is important not to overlook the potential features that definitely shouldn’t make their way into your plans for the bathroom’s design.
We have seen many bathroom design sins over the years. In this article we have rounded up some of the most common design mistakes that should be avoided when considering your bathroom re-design.
COLOURED BATHROOM SUITES
Coloured bathroom suites should be avoided at all costs. Although a trend in avocado or creamy yellow suites existed in years gone by, the time for these is definitely not now.
If you’re after a dated, tired-looking bathroom then go ahead and install a coloured bath and toilet.
For a stylish, clean and simple look, always stick with a white bathroom suite. It provides a timeless and more sanitary feeling design, as well as acting as a selling point when marketing your home.
Another surprisingly common mistake we see is the use of carpet in the bathroom. Yes, it’s warm and comfy underfoot, but it will soon become damp, mouldy and smelly. Not what you want in a room that should feel clean and relaxing.
Instead, choose one of the many more suitable bathroom flooring options such as tiles, linoleum, rubber or wood. These are all easy to keep clean and mould free.
And if these options don’t offer the warm feeling that a carpet does when stepping out the bath, then consider installing underfloor heating, invest in a pair of slippers or use a bath mat.
NO CONSIDERATION FOR STORAGE
It’s all well and good designing a modern, simple and minimalistic bathroom. But it needs to be practical as well.
All too often bathroom storage comes as an afterthought. If there’s nowhere to store your bathroom essentials then the bathroom isn’t really very usable.
