5 Stunning Design Tips for Creating Your Dream Bathroom

Whatever your budget may be, there is always a way to upgrade your space.

Whether you are looking to design your master bathroom or guest bathroom, there are plenty of areas you can focus on modernizing. But, one of the areas that has the most return on your investment is the bathroom.

So where should you spend those money? Here are five necessary features for a dream bathroom design.

Widened Doors

In most homes, the average width of an interior door frame is twenty~four inches, which is not wide enough for a person using a walker to get through without awkward manoeuvrers.

Install a door that is at least thirty-two inches wide to make sure everyone in the house is able to easily enter the bathroom whenever they need to use it.

Taller or Height Adjustable Toilets

The average toilet does not sit at the same level as the seats on wheelchairs and walkers.

Adding a comfort height toilet that is taller or height adjustable will make it easier for the mobility-challenged to move between the toilet seat and their wheelchair (or walker).

Walk-In Bathtubs

Bathtubs can be a challenge to get into or out of for any person, much less an older adult whose balance is not what it used to be. Walk-in bathtubs allow for an easy entry and exit while reducing the risk of tripping over the edge that is just a little bit too high.

Grab Bars

Grab bars are a necessary addition to a bathroom designed for those who want to enjoy their bath. Install them with a walk-in bathtub and next to the toilet to help people keep their balance as they make use of the bathroom.

Make sure they are braced in and can take the weight of someone who weighs as much as 110-140 kgs.

Non-slip Surfaces

Non-slip surfaces are a desirable feature in any bathroom. Make sure baths, shower trays and flooring all have non-slip surfacing in order to avoid the too common slip-and-fall accidents that can occur.

Ditch the Bath/Shower Combo

When you design your dream bathroom, it is an excellent idea to ditch the old bath/shower combo and instead either go with a gorgeous glass shower, a whirlpool bath, or both, if you have the room for it.

This will take your bathroom to a whole new level. The shower can be tiled with gorgeous tiles or better still if you want to save money and still get the look go for Showerwall panels.

Get A Double Sink Vanity

If your bathroom is used by more than one person, then renovation time is the perfect time to have a double sink vanity installed.

Having an extended vanity with two sinks in it will make sharing your bathroom so much easier and the added space will be a dream. You can also customize your vanity by choosing whatever style of sinks, countertops, wood finishes, etc., that you desire.

This can go a long way in not only making your bathroom more functional but also making it more modern and personalised to your style and taste.

Update Your Flooring

If you still have the old linoleum flooring in your bathroom, it is definitely time to redesign and upgrade your flooring. There are so many gorgeous types of tiles out there to choose from.

Design Your Dream Bathroom

A bathroom re-design is always a great idea. It will enhance the appearance of your space and is an investment that will enhance the value of your home.

    we have a shower that is 1700mm and we want a shower wall panel to fit do you do wider than 1200mm

    • Hi Marie,
      For lots of logistical reasons 1200mm is the widest size. The idea is you mount them side by side if you have a larger area. Your fitter can easily cut to size. Also adding end trims will give a neat finish.
