Updating Your Bathroom? Need Inspiration? Here’s a Checklist for You.

Friday, September 25, 2015

You might not think about it, but many people struggle to come up with ideas for a new bathroom design. I am one of those people, and it bugs the hell out of me! You'd think that choosing a new bathroom design is a simple and straightforward process but it’s not.

The bad news, for me at least, is that it is a rather long and drawn-out procedure. I find it hard just to choose something and move on; I have to take my time weighing up the options in my head!

Although I haven’t made my mind up yet, I feel like I am getting there.  I can somehow envision that perfect bathroom of my dreams. If you're stuck for inspiration, remember that you’re not alone so don't feel down about it.  Below is my tiny checklist on updating our bathroom… 

Get rid of the radiator

We all know that radiators are useful for hanging and drying your towels on after you've had a bath or shower. But it’s not designed for every home.

Also, I'm certain that it isn’t that efficient at heating my bathroom up on a cold winter's morning. The plan is to get it removed and be replaced with underfloor heating fitted instead. Studies say that heat rises. The heat will make the floor warm to walk over on a cold morning and that same heat will rise and fill the bathroom.

Therefore, my towels will dry just by leaving them hung up on a hook behind the door!  Right?

Rearrange the storage space

I am not much of a fan of the behemoth that I call my bathroom cabinet. It is mouldy, ugly and not too practical. I also don’t like the fact that it occupies a large amount of wall real estate.

Thanks to the http://www.bellabathrooms.co.uk site where one can find lots of ideas for replacement. I am, of course, talking about a stylish new vanity unit! In place of the old cabinet is a large mirror surrounded by LED lights.  Cool, yeah? 

Move the bathroom around by 90 degrees

For some reason, the previous owner of my place has decided on an unwise layout for the bathroom. It doesn’t make practical use of the space, and it makes people using it feel claustrophobic!

The solution will be quite simple if I'm honest. I’ll simply have the bathroom moved around 90 degrees counter-clockwise! Now there is a more efficient use of the space, and you no longer feel like a tinned sardine.

Get those windows tinted

One annoying aspect of my bathroom is the fact that it's at the front of the house. That means I can't open the window without people down in the street being able to see me!

I have to settle with a roller blind so that I can keep the window open for ventilation while I shower each morning. But, the bad news is it blocks out all the natural light.

Another easy solution I’m thinking of investing in is to have the window tinted! I’ll look for a particular tint that still lets me look out to some degree but people can not look in from the outside.

How about you?  What’s your bathroom improvement checklist?

Have a great weekend everyone!
