What’s Your Budget?

When planning a bathroom remodel, the best place to start is to figure out a budget you’re comfortable with. When you know how much you have to spend, you can then start looking at different bathroom suites within your price range and thinking about things like wall tiles, flooring, etc. Remember to factor in any contractor costs or the cost of installing your new suites as well so you don’t accidentally spend more than you can afford.

Consider Storage Solutions

Any cluttered room can feel uncomfortable, and as you will have cleaning products and toiletries to store in your bathroom, you must have enough storage to keep the room tidy. If you have kids, you might also want to ensure that the storage for bleach and other cleaning products is out of reach. You might even keep your bathroom towels in a linen cabinet in your bathroom, too. Make sure you’re thinking about these storage units and how you can fit them into the overall design; otherwise, your bathroom might look untidy, or you’ll struggle to find places to keep these various items stored.


There are various bathroom design styles you can choose from, but it’s worth thinking about how it will fit in with the rest of the house. For example, a vintage bathroom suite can look wonderful in a period property, but it would be out of place in a modern home with sleeker features. Likewise, you might want to keep it simple with a neutral color scheme, which is always timeless, rather than risking a décor choice that will be out of fashion in a few years.

How Much Space Do You Have?

Another thing to keep in mind is how much space you have to work with on the remodel. If you have a smaller bathroom, a walk-in shower might and no bathtub might help to make it feel more spacious and luxurious. However, if you can’t live without a bath, then a bath and shower combination will be your best option. You should also make sure that you’re not purchasing a bathroom suite that is quite bulky, as it will look different in the showroom to your bathroom (always take measurements with you!)
