There is so much choice when it comes to bathroom suites, so it can be a little challenging and overwhelming to choose a new suite when the time comes to redo your bathroom. It’s an expensive investment for your home, so it’s important that you get it right.

As a result, you need to make sure you plan thoroughly and realistically. Here are our top 3 tips to make sure you get it right.

The basics

Before you embark upon any planning, it is important to first of all set a clear budget and measure the available space. Getting these two things clear right at the very beginning will save you a lot of unnecessary stress further down the line.

Knowing the measurements of your room will save you from falling in love with your dream suite, which just wouldn’t work for your space as you can eliminate it quickly and move on.

It will also help with things such as deciding on things such as whether or not to have a freestanding shower and bath.

Setting a budget is extremely important when making any home improvements, so assess how much you can spare, and make sure that you factor in around 10% as a buffer for unexpected costs.

This will help you to keep your expectations realistic when you are making choices on where to save and where to splurge.

Plan for the future

As you are going to be spending a lot of money and time on your new bathroom, it’s well worth considering not only what you currently need from the space, but also what you might require in the future.

For example, you may not have a family yet, but what if you decide to start one within the next few years? If you make the space suitable now, it will save you having to redo your bathroom all over again when the time comes.

It is also worth thinking about things like installing a bathtub, which would increase the resale value of your home should the time come for you to move on.

Decide on what style you want

One thing that can make the whole planning process much easier is choosing the style you want to go for right at the beginning. This will help to eliminate what you don’t like as you go about choosing, rather than feeling overwhelmed with choice.

If this is your first time redoing your own bathroom, it’s worth taking the time to look at some inspiration, to help cement what your own personal style is. There are plenty of inspiration photos on Houzz here, or on Pinterest.

There are so many styles to choose from, from modern and sleek to vintage victorian styles, so it’s important to get the style you want decided early on.

Alternatively, you could consider using a specialist bathroom designer for your first remodel. Aston Designs, who are bathroom specialists in Milton Keynes told us “we take care of everything from the design to the installation, and make sure that it will work with your lifestyle”.

The most important thing when it comes to choosing a suite is to make sure that it works for you and your family, and is realistic for your space and budget! So we hope that this guide has given you some inspiration in making your decision.
