When it comes to renovating a home, the bathroom is one of the rooms deliberated about the most. The bathroom also tends to be the room people renovate the most often, and with things like moisture being omnipresent in the bathroom, this isn’t surprising.
Letting a bathroom go too long without a touch-up or complete renovation can present an opportunity for mould to take hold, which is never a good thing.
But how do you choose a new bathroom? What options are out there?
At McRobert’s Plumbing and Heating, we have provided domestic bathrooms to all kinds of homes, so we’re in the unique position to talk about what you should consider when it comes to picking your new bathroom.
How To Choose Bathroom Features
If you’re not going for a full renovation – or even if you are – choosing what bathroom features to change or what to keep the same can be a challenge. There are a variety of options to consider, such as:
What Tiling To Go For
Tiling is a staple in bathrooms. Not only do they protect your internal wall linings from the moisture a bathroom is expected to produce, but they can add style to your bathroom.
There are various types and shapes of tiles to choose from. Some prefer the subway-style tiles with their harsh geometry and matte tones. Others prefer softer, flatter tiles with decals such as flowers.
Choose tiles that will reflect not only your personality but will tie in nicely to your overarching home theme.
There are a few valid options for bathroom flooring. You’ll want to avoid laminate flooring, as this will buckle and warp very easily when exposed to moisture. You could consider vinyl flooring, linoleum, or good old-fashioned tiles.
A trend that’s been making a comeback is bare stone, polished down to look very contemporary and stylish.
Radiator Or Towel Rail?
For bathrooms, you’ll, of course, have the choice to install a towel rail in place of a radiator. Either will work for bathroom space, and both will be able to adequately heat a bathroom.
However, radiators will tend to take up far more space than a towel rail will. In this respect, if you have a bathroom on the smaller side, then it may be best to opt for a towel rail to save space.
How To Choose Bathroom Installers
This is another factor to consider that many homeowners will not pay all that much attention to. Who installs your bathroom features is just as important as the features themselves.
Choosing the cheapest bathroom installers around isn’t always the most sensible option. You’ll want to choose a company that has an abundance of experience installing bathrooms and knows bathrooms inside out.
