What’s on your wish list for a new bathroom?

Posted on July 11 2013, Bathroom Planning

Here’s a selection of what we have been asked for when designing, specifying and installing new bathrooms.

Plenty of storage solutions (can you ever have enough?)

I want my bathroom to be: sleek and stylish / neutral / with a wow factor / practical family / boutique hotel … and almost anything else you can think of we have heard!  This is where a specialist bathroom designer comes into their own and can specify products that will meet your wish-list in a design as individual as you are.
  • A comfortable bath to soak in – here we show a couple of favourites with many of our clients the Victoria and Albert Amalfi slipper style bath shown here with Piano Black exterior, and the modern Teuco Wilmotte bath

    • Mirror cabinet with shaver socket and storage – this is a must for hiding all those messy bits and pieces away

    Can we ever have enough storage?  Dansani Abu Look

    We can offer a wide assortment of mirror cabinets including Soundsystem from Duravit, which has an integrated sound system – you can stream music via your smartphone!

    The quality of sound is amazing – even on an exhibition stand where we first heard it!

    • More space

    This is where a designer can see at a glance how to make the best use of your space, and where to add storage

    • Somewhere to dry towels and add warmth

    The Bisque Seta is also available as Seta Towel for use in bathrooms.
    Here is a selection of towel warmers we have used in a some bathrooms we have installed recently.

    You can choose from a huge selection of towel warmers in all shapes, sizes and colours!

    •  Traditional with a twist

     Many of us live in older houses and whilst cutting edge modern works in some homes, some of us prefer to keep a traditional style in our bathroom.  Again this is where a specialist bathroom designer can make a huge difference. 

    Soak in Style Design – Traditional with a Twist bathroom plan

    Our client was very specific in her brief of the sort of look she wanted to achieve, dark rooms that are well lit with funky but traditional style additions.

    • Warm floor

    Underfloor heating – a feline favourite

    We always recommend underfloor heating if there is a shower, or in a family bathroom where there might be some water spills from children.  Nothing beats having toasty warm tiles on a cold winters evening – and if you have any cats in the family they will think so too!

    • All the latest gadgets

    For those who want a TV in the bathroom, or a high-powered shower, a whirlpool spa bath or a shower bidet we can guide you in the right direction.

    So you’ve had a wish-list for a long time, and with one thing and another you haven’t got round to making the big decision.  But finally, it’s time for a new bathroom!  Bathrooms are used daily by everyone in the family, but they can also be a retreat at the end of your day.  They are often used by your guests, so this is something to bear in mind when planning what you want.  A new bathroom can add significantly to the value of your property, and a fully trained bathroom designer can help you make the most use of space and come up with suggestions you may not think of within your budget.
