Remodelling your bathroom to suit you and your family’s lifestyle is a significant investment and can go a long way in adding value to your home. Here is a checklist of smart improvements and investments to help you make your new bathroom a functional and luxurious space.

Extra storage in your bathroom may not be the first thing you think of when renovating, but it is important to take full advantage of the space available in your bathroom. Take a look at bathroom habits and family members products, if they are armed with lotions, products and cosmetics, ensure you plan accordingly. Designs like niches or shaving cabinets are functional as they create additional storage space. Creating a series of niches in the wall of your shower is a great way to provide space for shampoo bottles and other toiletries while providing a unique bathroom feature.

A well designed bathroom vanity ensures everything you need in the bathroom is in arms reach. A custom designed vanity installed in your bathroom enables you to choose the dimensions of the cabinets and shelving to suits your needs. If you have enough space, consider installing two basins, allowing for a busy family or couples to save time getting ready in the morning. A wall mounted vanity will give you easier access to your toiletries and increases the sense of space in your bathroom.

The materials you choose when renovating you bathroom can make a huge difference to the resale value and funcitonality of the new look. Plan which finishes you would like on the walls and floors of your bathroom, for example, if using natural stone on the walls and timber panelling on the walls you may need to consider their properties and if they are going to withstand heat, water, steam and chemicals from cleaning. Consider contrast a vanity stone bench top with a sleek monochrome palette or wooden cabinetry with a classic white basin and bath, depending on which bathroom style suits your home.

As flooring covers a large area of your bathroom and can change the whole look and feel of the room, it is important to consider which pattern, shape and texture you will use. Add texture by using pebbled tiles or create a simple stylish look by using neutral colours. Extend your chosen tile from the floor to ceiling for a high end look or create a feature wall with a contrasting colour.
