Things To Remember When Renovating Your Bathroom

If you have decided to update your bathroom, or you have moved into a new house where the bathroom needs renovating, then it can be easy to forget to include certain useful items in your bathroom. Luckily for you, this article should help you to remember.

Toilet, Bath & Sink

Just throwing them out there, don’t forget to install the basics – toilet, bath & sink. It’d be quite the feat to forget one of these, but make sure you have planned the space correctly and have left enough room for each element. It likely goes without saying, but just in case.

Shower Curtain

If your bathroom includes a shower that isn’t self-contained, then you will need to remember to install some kind of shower curtain or panel. If you don’t, then the water from the shower will spray all over the room causing water damage, damp to accumulate and potentially cause a leakage to the floor below. Needless to say, all of those are bad. That is why having a shower curtain or equivalent is important. If you elect to go with a shower curtain, then you will need a rail for it to hang from that goes alongside the bath. This might need to be screwed into the ceiling or wall depending on the rail, so don’t forget.

Heated Towel Rail

Installing a heated towel rail is always an excellent idea. It dries your towels and keeps them warm for when you use them next. It also helps to heat the room up and makes it dry quicker. This is all good stuff because it means that damp is less likely to occur and the room will feel fresher for longer between cleans. It is important to remember when installing a heated towel rail that it needs to be plugged into an electrical socket. If you forget this fact and decide to put in a heated towel rail late in the development of the room, then it is going to be a massive hassle for you. So don’t forget to make it part of your original plan when renovating your bathroom. There are a lot of choices, and you’ll want a heated towel rail that matches your room’s design and space requirements.

Built-In Storage

It is easy to just renovate a bathroom and only think about the actual facilities. In doing this, you’ll likely forget about all the other things that go into a bathroom. All of the bottles, medicines, toothbrushes and other bits and bobs. You must not forget about these and remember to plan where they are going to live once the bathroom is ready for use. If you can, you should create some kind of fitted or somewhere in the room. This will make the best use of the space available, and it will seamlessly become part of the room. This is better than suddenly having to purchase extra storage and having it feel mismatched with the rest of the room or be too big/small.
