Choosing a bathroom design in Perth should be an easy thing to do. However when faced with the plethora of available products it can be daunting.
Begin by looking through magazines. Tear out or mark all the bathrooms that appeal to you. Look at the home- themed TV shows and make a note of the bathroom features that you like. Over time you should be able to see a familiar theme/pattern running through your choices. At this point, you may choose to do it alone or get the help of a qualified designer. Indeed some people find the choices so overwhelming that it is best to get the designer in at the beginning!
Decide which process is easier for you, remember that the cost of using a professional can often be offset by the fact that they can save you on some products, save time finding tradesmen and most importantly save costly mistakes by making wrong choices. You will, in all probability, have to live with the mistake or the dream for a long time. You have to decide which would be easier to live with.
Next work out your budget – a vital step! You cannot have a “champagne” bathroom on a “beer” budget, so it is important to be realistic. Remember to leave money in the budget for demolition of an old bathroom, if applicable. After the budget has been considered it’s time to measure up the space you will have to work with, you cannot have a large spa or bathtub in a tiny bathroom . It is also wise to consider your storage space in the bathroom design particularly for future users such as teenage kids.
When you have worked out where everything will go, remembering it is always expensive to move plumbing, then you need to choose your fixtures and fittings. Tile shops can be ideal for this as they invariably have the laminate samples available so you can put that part together there. If you do not want laminate tops be sure to take samples of your chosen items to the tile shops or tile samples to the other shops you need to visit. Remember your lighting and mirrors as well as paint colors; you are planning the whole room.
