Designing your dream bathroom?

Read on for commonly asked questions, tips and tricks about renovating one of the most important rooms in your house.

What style of shower screen is best?

There are so many options for screening off shower alcoves in your home these days: you can choose from frameless, semi frameless, and even no shower screen at all! Then there are bi-fold shower screen doors, sliding shower doors, pivot shower doors and walk-in showers with no door at all.

With all the many design options available for your new shower and pricing varying greatly between the options, you may be a little confused as to what style of shower screen will best suit you. Let the experienced Bathroom Projects team talk you through the options and suggest a style that will suit both your home and your budget.

Timeless chrome, modern matte black or stylish gold tapware?

Just like with shower screens, there is a seemingly endless selection of fittings and fixtures to choose from for your new bathroom. You may be tossing up between choosing that ‘on trend’ matte black mixer tap you saw on The Block, versus classic chrome tapware similar to what was in your family home when you grew up. The Bathroom Projects design team will help you weigh up your options and choose tapware that is going to be functional as well as stylish.

How to maximise space in a small bathroom.

Is your bathroom small and cramped? This is a great reason to consider a bathroom renovation.

Often, storage space is a major consideration in a small bathroom. We know all the tricks to maximise your storage space whilst also maintaining as much surface area in your bathroom as possible.

Do grey tiles make a bathroom feel large or small?

The colour of tiles that you choose for your bathroom can have a significant effect on how you feel when you are in the room. What’s more, darker tiles on the wall can in some instances make a room feel smaller or more intimate, versus white tiles that can make a space feel larger and more open. For this reason, it’s important to make the right choice of tiles when renovating your bathroom.

Are you considering upgrading the tiles in your bathroom but unsure whether to select light and bright white tiles or modern and elegant dark grey or black tiles? Let our talented team visit you and talk you through the options to make sure you make the right decision for your bathroom.

Your lifestyle may be a consideration in our design choices, such as whether you use your bathroom as a space to chill out and relax at the end of a busy day, or if it’s a practical space in which you need plenty of light to be able to apply makeup, bathe the kids, or consider your outfit for the day.
