Planning Your New Bathroom Suite

Whether you’re planning to fit a top-of-the-range new bathroom suite, or you’re saving money and buying a budget bathroom, your new bathroom should be somewhere that makes you happy. Although bathrooms are still functional, everyday spaces, they’re increasingly seen as a place to indulge in a little lit of personal pampering too.

Planning for and choosing your new bathroom suite

Look realistically at your bathroom space, and plan your new layout. Think about what you might need and want to include, and see how likely it is that all of these things will fit – you may need to compromise on your requirements in order to avoid overcrowding your bathroom.

Choose from either traditional or modern designs of Dubai sanitaryware bathroom suite depending on your personal taste and the style of your home. If you stick to fittings that have clean lines without undue detailing or fussiness, your suite will not date so easily, and future bathroom redecorations will be a simple (and cheap) job consisting of replacing your accessories and updating your decor.

It’s very likely that you’ll need to add some bathroom furniture to your bathroom suite. Even a single, simple bathroom cabinet can provide quite a bit of storage space and help to keep your bathroom clear of clutter.

An overcrowded bathroom will both look and feel smaller than it is. You should leave a minimum of approx 60cm ‘user room’ in front of your basin and toilet, and 70cm alongside your bath.

If your room is small, think about using wall hung fittings which leave the floor area clear: this tricks the eye into believing that the room is larger than it actually is. Dual purpose pieces like a shower bath are also ideal in a confined space, as they eliminate the need for two separate pieces of sanitaryware.

Planning the installation

If your current bathroom layout is workable, it’s well worth avoiding making any changes. By keeping your existing bathroom layout, you’ll be able to avoid the additional installation costs of moving your pipework.

When employing a contractor to fit your new bathroom suite, remember that you’ll be entrusting this person (or company) with your home. Get quotes for the work from different contractors – but don’t necessarily go for the cheapest quote that comes back. Instead, make a shortlist and meet each contractor personally, discussing your bathroom plans with them. You should then obtain references. Get both financial references, from sub-contractors or the contractor’s bank, and references from previous customers too.
