As a first-time buyer, updating a bathroom is a great way to put your own stamp on your home and start a fresh. Re-imaging your bathroom can be a daunting task, but it allows you to create a bathroom that works for your needs and can grow with you in future years.
When it comes to what to consider, we’ve put together our top bathroom tips to ensure you make the most out of your new bathroom.
Making quality choices
Whatever choices you make now as a first time home owner, you need to feel confident they’re the right decisions for you and your family. Quality products you can rely on for the next 10+ years help you save money in the long run.
At Bathrooms Direct Yorkshire we have a wide range of carefully selected brands that we choose to work with, including Villeroy and Boch, Hansgrophe, Victoria & Albert and many more brands that are renowned for their high-quality products and attention to detail.
Multipurpose bathroom furniture
Combination bathroom furniture is a tried and tested method of saving space. Instead of sticking with traditional pedestal sinks and baths, go for a more contemporary look with fitted furniture. A combination sink-and-toilet unit looks smart and takes up less space. You also get extra storage for towels and toiletries. What’s not to like about that?
We stock a wide range of fitted bathroom furniture from industry leaders, including Villeroy and Boch and many more.
Let's be honest, there is nothing more boring than traditional bathroom radiators, especially in a modern bathroom. Contemporary radiators and towel rails allow you to select something that can blend in with your design and make a positive impact to the overall feel of your bathroom.
Designer products such as Bisque radiators are guaranteed to provide the modern finishing touches your bathroom deserves. These bathroom radiators are available in a range of shapes and styles with a chrome plated finish for added luxury. They add that modern touch and create the perfect space to relax and unwind in.
Clever storage hacks
Excessive clutter makes any room appear small, not least a bathroom. Fit a wall cupboard or replace a pedestal sink with a sink unit. This lets you store towels and toiletries out of sight and maximise the available space.
The plus side of owning your first property is having full permission to take storage solutions to the next level compared to the limited space in your rented accommodation. During the redesign of your new bathroom, it’s important to take into account opportunities to incorporate storage space wherever possible.
Incorporating some of these steps will let you transform your bathroom into an entirely new space and allow you to put your own stamp on your new home. As first-time buyers it’s important that you can make your new home your own.
