So, it’s time for a change. You’re tired of your old bathroom, or it just isn’t as practical as it used to be, and you’re looking to update for your current needs and personal tastes. Here at Bathtime Mobility, we are dedicated to helping our customers find the perfect bathroom for their needs – everyone should be able to enjoy their bathing experience, and there’s no use having a bathroom which has been completely designed for practicality, if it doesn’t make you feel completely comfortable.
So, whether you’re looking to redecorate or install a walk-in shower to make it a more comfortable environment, we thought we’d give you a few tips and things to consider when you’re planning on your brand new bathroom design!
3 Things To Consider When Updating Your Bathroom
- The Colours! – Of course, this is one of the quickest and easiest ways to update your bathroom. A new lick of paint can completely change the appearance of a bathroom, particularly if your current bathroom design looks dark or dismal.
Bathrooms take a lot of abuse in their daily life, thanks to the constant steam from baths and showers, so you need to make certain that the paint you choose is up to the challenge.Whether you’re painting straight onto drywall or painting over tiles, picking primer and emulsion paints which are designed to withstand steam, stains and mould is the first step in preparing your bathroom and ensuring longevity.
The colour scheme is important, as it will help to promote the kind of atmosphere that you desire, and the wrong bathroom colour scheme can make it an unpleasant space to be in.
Using fairly muted colours, such as gentle whites, creams and fairly neutral tones for the main part of the bathroom is the best practice, but brightening the room with splashes of vibrant colour, such as reds, blues and even subtle greens can make a real difference. One of the most popular schemes for modern bathrooms is a combination of muted oranges and browns, which can promote a real sense of relaxation.
- Practicality – It is likely that your needs will have changed since you first designed your bathroom. Whether those needs revolve around the amount of storage space you require or how mobility-conscious your design needs to be, don’t be afraid to make some fairly drastic changes.
If you prefer a shower, then it is usually best to install a walk-in shower, which can reduce the risk of falling for both mobility-conscious and unimpaired users. As an added bonus, they are also extremely easy to clean and are an effective way of future-proofing your bathroom design.
- Lighting – The lighting in your bathroom can make a real difference to its atmosphere and many modern bathroom feature two forms of lighting. With a single, bright light source, which will help you to wake up in the mornings, you can run the risk of making it a difficult area to relax in.
By including a dimmer switch, or a vanity-desk form of lighting along with the main light source, you can create an alternative lighting solution which is perfect for unwinding at the end of a long day.
