6-step bathroom planner
Now you know what you’re buying for, our handy 6-step bathroom planner will help you make the best use of your unique space.
Starting with the basics, this simple bathroom planning process is the quick and easy way to work out which products you’ll need in your bathroom. It even comes with a handy checklist, so you can find everything you need.
If you’re planning a full refurbishment, you should consider everything in this list, however, if it’s just a quick refresh or a smaller project, such as a cloakroom, you may want to skip some of the steps detailed below.
Step 1: Bath, shower or both?
Choosing between the product that put the “bath” in bathroom or a shower can often be the toughest decision of them all. It’s the focal point for your whole room.
Step 2: Toilets and basins
Due to their associated plumbing, it’s highly likely your basin and toilet will need to remain in the same position—but this shouldn’t stop you choosing a design that’s right for you.
- Toilet seat
- Back to wall toilet unit
- Concealed cistern
- Basin or vanity unit
- Basin waste and trap
Step 3: Furniture and storage
Next, you need to consider furniture. Keeping your bathroom clutter-free is the key to a stylish and relaxing space.
Step 4: Brassware
With your layout confirmed, it’s now time to turn your attention to taps, showers and those essential extras.
Step 5: Heating
Keeping your bathroom feeling warm and comfortable is vital, which is why you’ll need to consider heating. Why not replace that cumbersome radiator with a new designer model that fits with your overall design? Or, to keep your towels toasty, why not add a heated towel rail?
Step 6: Walls, floors and finishing touches
All that’s left to do is think about the little things that will make your dream bathroom complete. You’ll find we stock a wide range of beautiful matching accessories, along with great wall and flooring options, that’ll finish off your bathroom in style.
- Towel rail
- Robe hook
- Tumbler and holder
- Toilet roll holder
- Soap dish
- Toilet brush and holder
- Wall and floor tiles
- Shower wall panels
- Bathroom lighting
- Waterproof flooring
- Underfloor heating
