5 Ways to Tell That You Need to Update Your Bathroom

Do you find yourself postponing a bathroom update? Bathroom renovations may seem costly, inconvenient, and time-consuming, but their advantages are many and range from lower bills to improved comfort levels. If you are not sure whether you should go for a bathroom update, have a look at these five signs that tell you it’s time to go ahead with it.

You are constantly having to deal with repairs

Just like in any other room of the house, tear and wear take its toll on bathroom fittings and fixtures. Sooner or later, most homeowners must deal with leaking faucets, chipped caulking, cracked tiles, dysfunctional plumbing, or blocked drains. However, if these little things start breaking down or needing repairs one after the other, it may be time to arrange a full bathroom renovation. Although a bathroom update may seem a lot of work, tackling the root of the problem at once is always more cost-efficient and convenient than having to deal with problems here and there.

Energy-inefficient fixtures

New technologies have changed the way we live and think about public and private spaces. This also applies to fixtures and fittings, and particularly to those related to plumbing and lighting. If you haven’t updated your bathroom fixtures in a while, chances are that they will not be up to date with the latest energy-efficiency guidelines. This translates into higher water and energy bills. Modern toilets, faucets, and shower heads can reduce water consumption by up to 70 per cent, whereas energy-saving lighting can help you use up to 95 per cent less electricity.

It feels cramped

If your bathroom feels cramped or you are constantly banging into cabinets and other fixtures, this is a clear sign that a bathroom update is overdue. Awkward corners, oddly shaped rooms, and inefficient layout usually lead to that uncomfortable cramped feeling. “But there isn’t enough space to change that”, you may be thinking. The truth is that good design is the key, and it may be even more important than the actual amount of space available. When designed, and installed by professionals, even the smallest bathrooms can feel uncrowded and roomy.

Your bathroom has become a functional space

Have you ever walked into a hotel room and felt amazed at its stylish bathroom? There are bathrooms that we use and bathrooms that we admire. Think about how your bathroom fits into this. Is it primarily a place you go in and out of? Modern bathrooms should not only be functional rooms, but also spaces where you can retreat to after a long and stressful day. Professionals that specialise in bespoke bathroom renovations can add a few remarkable features that make the space more pleasant and enjoyable, irrespective of your bathroom’s size. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a little luxury at home!

It does not match the rest of your house décor

Over the years, you are likely to renovate or redecorate those rooms of the house where you spend a considerable amount of time, such as bedrooms, living rooms, or dining rooms. In some cases, this means that your bathroom will end up looking out of sync with the rest of the house. So, if you want to enjoy a harmonious feeling throughout your home, it may be the right time to arrange a bespoke bathroom installation.

It is obvious that remodelling your bathroom offers many benefits and can be more cost-effective than you think. Leave your bathroom update project in the hands of trusted professionals, and you will be pleased that you made this decision.

Ensuite Bathroom to wet room

This Client was looking for a full refurbishment of the Master Bedroom En-suite, utilising some of the area of an adjacent box room as a dressing room. The key requirements were a Wet-room Style Shower Base and Twin Basins, with Storage and a minimalist contemporary finish. The internal partition walls forming the bathroom were remove and repositioned to create a room of suitable size from what was required whilst utilising space from the adjacent room to form a walk-in Dressing Room. The partition walls were constructed to conceal all the pipe-work and trimmed out to allow for the installation of two bespoke recessed mirrored cabinets over the basins

The new bathroom incorporated a 1200 fixed shower screen, leading to the Wet-room Shower Base. From our comprehensive knowledge and experience of creating reliable wet-room installations we appreciate the importance of the preparation of the wall and floor substrates to ensure the job will last without any of the potential problems associated with this type of job if the correct procedure it’s not followed. The room was fully tiled to walls and the intricate procedure for tiling to the floor within the wet-room is imperative. The ceiling was cloaked with a tasteful PVC Cladding with low energy recessed LED lighting and a high performance in-line fan. The room was fitted with twin wall hung vanity units and bespoke recessed mirrored wall cabinets to provide plenty of useful storage space. A colour coordinated towel rail with dual energy supply was fitted to provide a heated rail even when the central heating is not on. Electric under-floor heating was also installed.

Bathroom Refit with Bespoke Vanity to Conceal Stairs Bulkhead

This client of Bespoke Bathroom Solutions was looking for a full refurbishment of the bathroom, ideally with the inclusion of a separated shower cubicle in addition to keeping the bath. Whilst the room was a reasonable size it was not ideally suited for including a cubicle without making some key alterations to the layout as the room has a sloping ceiling and the staircase bulkhead to the floor below encroached in the room.

To achieve a suitable layout for the bathroom design, the central heating system was altered to incorporate a combination boiler hence the cylinder cupboard became redundant, however due to the staircase bulkhead forming part of the cupboards lower structure it could not be totally remove. A new structure was formed to conceal the bulkhead incorporating storage for a vanity unit and formed a suitable position for the basin. A full facade was built to conceal a redundant window which was built to conceal a wall hung W.C frame and concealed cistern and form a suitable void for a recessed cabinet over the basin position. The new bathroom incorporated a bath of slightly reduced length and a suitably sized shower cubicle. A purpose built vanity unit was constructed below the basin with recessed storage above. A wall hung W.C suite and heated towel rail we also included. The room was fully tiled to walls and floor.New low energy recessed LED lighting and a high performance in-line fan were installed.

Marble Wall Job

This client of Bespoke Bathroom Solutions was looking for a full refurbishment of a bathroom in a 17th Century Property. The brief was that the room should have a real unique wow factor using natural marble slabs on the walls and floor and should incorporate a feature niche and plenty of sparkle.

The room was fully stripped out and the wall plaster was removed back to sub-structure. The walls were then fully lined out plumb and square with external grade plywood incorporating voids for pipe-work, niche storage and concealed cistern frame. A metal frame ceiling was also built with a central recess to accept recessed lighting and a skimmed finish.

The new bathroom incorporated a bath of slightly reduced length, framed out for a marble bath panel. A walk in shower with a low level shower tray. A purpose built oak vanity unit with matching recessed mirrored storage above and a granite vanity top and conical vessel basin. A wall hung combined W.C & Bidet unit.
