Is Your Bathroom Meeting Your Needs?

Design Trends
before and after of WA Assett renovations

As you and your family grow, you will probably reach a time where that bathroom designed 10+ years ago just isn’t meeting your needs and is probably very out-dated in terms of design.

Your bathroom should be a stylish, efficient and comfortable space that adds value to your home and suits your lifestyle. It’s time to ask yourself is your bathroom meeting your needs, today?

Is your bathroom due for an update? Read our five questions to ask yourself below to find out if you’re due for a new bathroom.

Struggling for storage?

Do you find yourself stuffing things into drawers and cupboards to keep them out of site? Storage is a key inclusion for smart design and if you’re struggling to find storage, it’s time for an upgrade.

Maximising the space in your bathroom comes down to smart design. Don’t let that dead space above your toilet be wasted; it is the perfect place for an extra set of cupboards or shelves. That unused linen cupboard next to your bathroom can be transformed into an extra powder room freeing up traffic and creating a more private toilet for you and your guests. It’s important to recognise these opportunities and include them into your design.

Do you want to bring in more light?

Alongside being functional, lighting can be decorative and requires a good plan. No woman likes to do her make up in bad lighting, so lighting is definitely an important consideration when designing a bathroom. This may be ceiling, vanity or accent lights, which are carefully chosen to reduce shadow on the mirrors or show wet spots on the floor.

It’s important to also include natural sources of light such as windows and skylights to simply reduce glare and transform the area into a more open space. If you want to bring in more natural light to your bathroom, then you could be due for a renovation.

Is your bathroom stuck in the ’80s or ’90s?

There’s nothing worse than walking into a bathroom from the 90’s, but maybe walking into a bathroom from the 80’s does beat it. Out-dated bathroom’s can definitely take the joy out of your bathroom experience and is one of the main reasons that people decide to renovate their bathroom.

Bathrooms are known to add value to your home, so if you’re looking to inject some new life and bring your property into the 21st Century, then the bathroom is definitely the place to start.

Is your bathroom a space you resent?

Does the idea of having a shower or taking a bath make you uneasy or scared that you may slip? As your body becomes more fragile and your balance uneasy, it’s time to update your bathroom design to suit this. Transforming your bathroom into a liveable bathroom is something we love most; nothing beats hearing from clients that they have fallen back in love with their bathroom and feeling confident to take a shower or bath on their own.

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then it’s time to seriously consider a bathroom renovation. Get in touch with the WA Assett team for a complimentary in-home consultation and estimate today via our website enquiry form or call 9473 1800.
