1. Consider the lights
Poor lighting in a bathroom could spoil all your hard work by casting shadows or making the space feel too cold and clinical. Book a consultation with a Mico Bathrooms consultant to talk to them about what lights would suit your budget and needs.
2. Plan plenty of storage
Bathrooms can quickly become cluttered as each member of the family accumulates beauty products and accessories. Even if planning extra storage feels excessive, you’ll probably find you need every inch of the bathroom shelf space. Include a simple bathroom robe hook on the back of the bathroom door to utilise an otherwise unusable space. Browse the options in the Mico Bathroom Book – an amazing source of modern designs and decor ideas with plenty of mirrored cabinets and vanities.
3. Save money by utilising paint
Tiling is beautiful but expensive. With good planning, you could avoid tiling altogether and simply use paint to beautify your space, possibly saving you thousands. Other options include glass – which can feature painted imagery – and bold patterned wallpaper.
4. Think carefully about grout
Talk to your tiler about your options and explore the pros and cons of each. White grout looks great to start with but can become discoloured – is there another option that would look good with your tiles?
5. Keep it simple
Avoid curves, steps, decorative mouldings and non-essential details or ornamentation in your bathroom. The simpler the design, the more cost-effective it will be to build. Consider a shower over bath when you have limited space, so you get a shower and bath.
