There are many things to consider when deciding to have a new bathroom. You need to be prepared before you start your journey. Everything from colours and design to going solo or getting a professional in to do the work – all these elements are things you need to think about when considering updating your bathroom.

Professional vs Going Solo

When you are planning to have a new bathroom fitted, there are quite a few things to think about. Do you need professional help with the design, style, product selection? Maybe even deciding on the colour scheme. There are many things which you may not consider when going solo on a project like this. Whilst you can do the whole process yourself from choosing products and colours to the installation, wouldn’t it just be easier for it all to be done for you? Imagine waking up to your dream bathroom. Okay, it doesn’t just happen overnight, but employing a professional to sort it all for you can make the whole process stress and care free!

Deciding on a professional?

If you decide to go down the route of a professional bathroom company, it’s good to gather some information about that company. Whether that be through recommendation from a friend, family member or colleague to reviews from Google and social media platforms, it’s good to know who you’re dealing with. Remember to look at the following:

  • Take a good look at their website
  • Read the customer testimonials
  • Look through their social media platforms
  • Read reviews from Google/social media platforms

Building a relationship with your bathroom designer

If you are going to be working with a professional bathroom designer and spending a significant amount of money, you need to ensure you feel comfortable, confident and certain that you can work with your designer. Whilst it’s important to build up a relationship with your bathroom design, ensure that you have the right ideas in your head so you can work together. After all, they cannot read minds! Your designer can then – not only give you great advice and expert guidance but listens to your ideas and needs. With this in mind, you’ll be well on your way to a lovely new bathroom!

Let’s talk budgets

Your budget is a really important part of starting the design process of your brand-new bathroom. It’s impossible to start designing your bathroom with no idea of budget and this can be dangerous as the costs can spiral. Outlining this at the beginning will enable you and your design expert to be on the same page from the start.
