Tips For Creating Your Dream Bathroom

My favorite thing about interior design is that it is subjective. It is unique to each individual looking to renovate or redecorate a space. It gives homeowners the chance to express their personality and unleash their creativity in a way that suits them. Of course, however, there are some universal principles that can be applied regardless of your style. Principals that can help you get the most out of your space, whatever that space may be. This article is designed to help you do just that, to help you create your dream bathroom space.

Stellar plumbing

You can have the most glamorous bathroom going with the most luxurious and high-end suite available, but if it doesn’t work or function properly, nothing about your bathroom will be dream-worthy. First and foremost you need to take your bathroom back to basics and ensure that all of your plumbing and waterworks are properly installed and working effectively. Not only that you want to ensure that you are getting the most out of your dream bathroom and its appliances by ensuring your plumbing is up to standard. What is the point in having a luxurious rainfall shower if you cannot use it to full effect? Use tried and tested reputable plumbers such as when it comes to your bathroom remodel.

Splurge on the washing appliance

If there is one big-ticket item worth spending on then it has to be your bathtub or shower. The main purpose of your bathroom is to wash and you want to do it in luxury. You want your bath or shower to be so enticing that you do not want to get out. If you want a luxurious bathtub then think about how you will most enjoy the tub. Do you need it to be oversized? Deep? Complete with jacuzzi jets?

If showers are more your thing then consider what it is that makes your shower impossible to leave. Do you want a walk-in shower full of space? A rainfall shower? Or a seat installed so you can sit and enjoy the warm water cascading over you as you shower?

Whatever you opt for you want to ensure that it will give you the bathing experience dreams are made of.

Heating and ventilation

Creating the dream bathroom has to include a certain number of practicalities. Together with plumbing the heating and ventilation of your bathroom should be high up on the priority list. To create the most comfortable environment in your bathroom you want to get just the right amount of heat and fresh air.

You want your bathroom to be warm enough in the colder months that you are able to step out of the shower without shivering yet with the ability to be ventilated enough to avoid dampness and mold and mildew build-up. A key consideration is therefore to pay attention to the quality and type of heating and bathroom fan you opt for. A top tip, a noisy fan will only serve to detract from the relaxing zen-like experience you may be hoping to create in your dream bathroom.

Fixtures and fittings

Fixtures and fittings are always an important part of any bathroom design. They have a practical purpose that serves to complement or accentuate the design style of your bathroom, so getting them right is key.

Try to choose handles that are comfortable in your hand and practical for the purpose. You don’t want to find yourself struggling to get into drawers and cupboards with wet hands. Once you are satisfied they are comfortable you can shop around for fixtures and fittings that not only fit in with your design but that make your bathroom stand out.

Get the flooring right

As with any room choosing the right flooring can make all the difference to a room. Over and above all your flooring needs to be practical for a room that will be subject to a lot of water and high temperatures. You will then need to research the different options available and the benefits they offer. For example, porcelain and ceramic tiles are a great easy-to-care option whereas laminate can give you the look you want but for less. There are a plethora of flooring options when it comes to your bathroom you will just need to consider your taste, preferences, and importantly your budget constraints. However, carpet is best avoided in bathrooms, if you want to feel the comfort and warmth of material underfoot then opt for a plush bath mat instead.


Finally there is nothing dream like about being in a dark and poorly lit space. As with every room in your house you want to create the perfect lighting. You will want it to be bright enough when you need to see well yet tranquil and calming enough to promote a relaxing atmosphere. Look for clever ways you can add the appropriate lighting to your bathroom to transform it into the perfect space for your needs.
