Our Top Tips for making the right design choices
Budget for possible surprises with your Bathroom Fitting
Unrecognised damage from water leakage is a common issue with bathrooms, whether from a leaking shower tray or toilet leak. Build in a 10-15 percent margin into your budget for a project. If you don’t use it then there’s a little extra for other things.
Hide the toilet
We recommend that, where possible, this particular fixture should be concealed by a smaller room partition or half-wall. If not cost effective then a furniture piece will often provide a solution.
Spend Time choosing appropriate surfaces
Besides a range of costs and appearance, your surfaces will take some abuse over the lifetime of the room. Time spent choosing the right size, type and material of tile for your surfaces is rarely wasted.
Go large on the shower
If a shower features in your thinking then don’t hold back. Our clients around Cardiff often comment on the pleasure of a shower and we are finding a growing interest in top line shower products, his and her showers and power shower installations.
Consider water efficiency
An efficient installation can save a substantial amount for a typical family of four across a year is on metered water supplies. The design of shower heads, taps and toilets contribute substantially to water saving when viewed over an extended period. Discuss this with us if you’d like to know more.
Provide adequate ventilation and light
Make sure you don’t overlook the importance of good ventilation and lighting to a quality design. Ventilation is important to prevent mould and mildew on or behind your units and surfaces. Lighting needs proper consideration to ensure the key areas of the room such as toilet, shower and bath approach have adequate illumination. We can advise if requested.
Bathroom Selection Mistakes To Avoid
Make sure you spend adequate time on the planning process for your Cardiff bathroom installation. Many clients are tempted to rush headlong into a redesign for their new or reworked bath area. In this case patience (and good guidance) is a virtue.
Don’t skimp on skilled tradesmen
Tempting as it may be to tackle at least part of your work in a DIY fashion, make sure you leave complicated designs and requirements to professionals like ourselves. We would say that wouldn’t we but, be assured, we have had to rescue many installation projects where the DIY enthusiast has come unstuck.
Don’t cut corners on key materials
Strangely potential customers often try to make savings in areas that get the highest use. Avoid the temptation and, if needed, look to make savings in areas such as light fixtures and basic tap finishes and other fixtures are the places to look.
Don’t forget water use
Don’t underestimate the quantities of water you and the family are likely to use, especially with multiple head showers, whirlpool baths and similar. This may lead to higher water charges but also your general use of energy will go up and the thickness of delivery pipes may be inadequate.
Don’t buy products without seeing them in person
The web is fantastic for checking out bathroom products and ideas but products, in reality, aren’t always as they appear online. Dimensions and finishes are particularly prone to misinterpretation when viewed online and compared with the actual product. We always recommend visiting a showroom before embarking on a project to get a real feel for the ranges of products available.
Don’t forget about storage
Often overlooked, a good and well laid out storage element is an essential part of the modern, quality Cardiff bathroom installation. Don’t be caught without that towel or groping for a robe when stumbling out of the shower.
