There are several things to consider when building a good bathroom. You need to think about how the space is going to be used, which area of the house the bathroom should be located, and what design, practically and aesthetically, are you in favour of doing.

Refer to the checklist below to know of the many issues you need to consider to ensure that your family bathroom or master bedroom en suite is both enjoyable and functional.

 

things to consider with a new bathroom

A room without enough storage space may look quite messy, when clutter is left behind. Your bathroom should be seen as a space that is able to effectively store all your items and equipment, such as hair products, hair dryer, makeup and other personal supplies. 

  • You may use vanity drawers for accessible storage of toiletries and medicines instead of using doors
  • Cleaning supplies may be stored in doors under the sink which will also keep them out of sight
  • Open shelves with wicker baskets are not only a decorative statement, it is also a good place to store your towels
  • Make use of off floor storage where it is possible
  • Use open cabinetry where the plumbing is exposed and wall mounted sinks to visually open up small bathrooms
  • Expand the room with the use of a lighter colour pallet, you can stick with neutral colours and natural minerals for a classic look
  • Make the room look wider by having mirror reflect the longest wall
  • For a bathroom to look bigger and feel cleaner, opt to use a curb-less shower
  • The toilet should not always be the first thing you see in the bathroom
  • Soggy damp towels can be hanged using stylish electric towel rails
  • To avoid cold floor tiles, have heating installed before you get the floors tiled
  • It is a great idea to have a smaller master and separate en suites
  • It is more functional to have a separate toilet room, sink and shower if you only have little space available
  • Avoid having the toilet in your direct line of sight if you bathroom connects with a shared space such as your living room or kitchen
  • It is important to have a ventilation fan if you do not have a window that is directed outside
  • The more that the bathroom is used for long hot showers is a cause of poor ventilation. This would often result to high humidity, damp towels, swelling vanity cupboards, as well as mould and mildew problems.
  • The vent should be directed outside the building. Take extra precautions if the steam vents into the attic space.
  • Use a single switch for the light and ventilation fan by wiring them into one
  • Use materials that are moisture-resistant instead of porous materials for your cabinets and vanity to reduce expansion, rot, or discolouration over time.
  • When using porous stone like travertine marble and hardwood be sure that they are sealed. Also be careful of soft-wood, non-waterproof MDF, particle board and fabric.
  • You may consider using non-slip tiles and mats
  • You may choose to have invisible non-slip coating applied to go along the smooth ceramic and stone tiles.
  • Personal hygiene such as shaving, waxing, applying of makeup and hair styling will require a good light source
  • For an ambient light you may use pot lighting in the ceiling
  • Lighten up your face evenly, and remove shadows, by installing task lights on either side of the mirror
  • Show-off you bathroom features by adding an accent lighting
  • You can still maintain your privacy while capturing natural light by using a skylight
