Renovating your bathroom is an exciting venture, but it can be equally daunting. Unlike your bedroom and living room, there are not only stylistic choices but unique logistical problems too. It may be possible to eat out while your kitchen is being refurbished but having bathroom facilities is something you can’t do without!

Although bathrooms are not the cheapest of home improvements, a good bathroom can last you a lifetime. With that in mind, we have put together a list of common mistakes that can affect the longevity of your bathroom’s lifespan and its quality:

A low-quality finish:

As stated before, a beautiful bathroom can last you years, or even decades. Choosing bespoke furniture allows you to choose every single element of your bathroom from hand-painted cabinets, worktops to die for and space-saving storage solutions.

Bespoke Interiors work closely with high-quality brands such as Grohe, Roca, Aqualisa and Ashton Bentley to ensure that the quality of your furniture and fittings matches your design.

Lack of planning:

Renovating your bathroom means there are certain safety procedures that need to be carried out, for example electrical safety checks and IP ratings must be conducted. Installing things in the wrong order can turn out to be a nightmare. Choosing an experienced designer is essential to planning the room that works.

Lack of co-ordination:

Individual trades can be guilty of a lack of communication and joined up thinking. It’s always a cheaper option to get individual trades in to tackle each part of a bathroom renovation but ultimately, the lack of co-ordination between the trades results in mistakes or delays. Choosing a company you trust can alleviate the stress associated with communication and planning by having a dedicated project manager to orchestrate the project behind the scenes.

We recently introduced a remote design service for those wanting to limit contact due to Covid-19. The idea behind this remote service is to start, progress and finalise the design process and pricing for your future kitchen, bedroom and bathroom projects. 

Poor plumbing:

The nightmare associated with poor plumbing can leave you stressed and out of pocket. Whilst detecting poor plumbing can be hard, it is recommended to do your research and check reviews. Low cost plumbing can be a costly mistake later down the line.

Don’t rush the layout:

An effective layout uses every element of your space efficiently, but it is easy to fall into the trap of sticking to your old layout. A bespoke bathroom is the perfect way to utilise every inch of your space efficiently. We can come up with dynamic and creative solutions including compact suites and hidden cisterns.
