Quick tips for remodelling a bathroom

Here are some of our top tips for bathroom remodelling:

  • Don’t cram in too much – Allow space in your bathroom to stand, dry yourself and move around without knocking into units.
  • Include lots of storage – Clutter can quickly turn a beautiful new bathroom into an unsightly mess, so make sure you include storage to keep all your products hidden from sight.
  • Let in as much natural light as possible – Natural light is great for creating the illusion of more space and can add impact to a gorgeous bathroom, especially roof glazing to save wall space.
  • Embrace quality lighting – In addition to daylight, you’ll want to have excellent quality artificial lighting such as backlit mirrors (for anyone wanting to do their make-up in the bathroom) or other ambient lighting.
