The bathroom suiteEven the simplest of bathrooms, well painted walls and contrasting tiles will benefit from a great bathroom suite. Changing an old one for a new one is always first choice as the contemporary designs on offer today offer the homeowner a wide variety of choices that are modern, well constructed and that wear well.
Obviously most people work around a budget and finding a bathroom suite that fits into this is not as difficult as one thinks – it is helpful to think long term though, what is spent today will add literally thousands in investment in the future, so choose carefully. Get the best quality you can afford.
Even if you are only changing your bathroom suite you will find that contemporary designs fit well into existing spaces, and in fact can revive even a traditional room into something more modern and visibly more appealing. Or perhaps you are thinking of changing only your taps which has the ability of brining your bathroom into the 21st Century.
Many outlets offer perfectly teamed bathroom suites, the bath, toilet and basin all in one price. For those who are “creatively” challenged, this is a great idea – you’ll get a bathroom that is perfectly co-ordinated, neat, clean and appealing.
If you have more of a creative flair, the world is your oyster! Creating you own design and finding fitting to match is enormously satisfying. Just remember re-sale though, too much “individuality” on items that are fixed in place and that not easily be changed can actually put some people off.
The variety of suites on the market is staggering. Looking at the bath itself, your options range form corner baths, rectangular or circular, to deep spherical natural stone baths, Victorian cast iron to soothing jet baths, or a simple well crafted acrylic bath.
Not that long ago bathroom sinks, or basins were largely overlooked. Today you can find a host of designs to fit any budget. Form the proverbial “pedestal” basin, hand tooled stone, ceramic, drop-in or sit-on versions that come in glass, are round, square or rectangular. Just remember that your basin should blend in, not stand out.
When it comes to a toilet, your choices are just as vast. You can even find those that are environmentally friendly; they eliminate odours by extracting air through the sanitary fixtures and can control bacteria!
