1. Lighting

Lighting is essential in a bathroom, especially if there are no windows for natural light. Welcome sunshine with large windows or incorporate stylish artificial illumination if you have no other choice.

2. Durability

It's one thing to include modern fixtures and fittings into your bathroom, but it’s another thing to ensure that those items are durable and resistant to moisture and mould. Opt for quality materials an you will have peace of mind.

3. Some colour

A bathroom with a colourful accent can be the decorative touch your home needs, so don’t be afraid to go with a vibrant combination.

4. Storage

Storage is necessary in any corner of the home, but that doesn’t mean you can just add a cabinet, shelf or cupboard anywhere, consider the best spot that is out the way and almost hidden. It is also vital to look at materials that will remain trendy for many years.

5. Shower and tub

You don’t have to choose between a bathtub and shower, especially if you have space for both. Invest in a tub and you will be soaking up the suds in luxury… you won’t regret it.

6. Plumbing

Living in an old home? It’s time to change your plumbing, doing so will ensure that you spend less money on water and sanitation and you won’t have that leaky tap problem either.
