If you live in Loughborough, Shepshed, Hathern, Kegworth, Quorn and other areas of Leicestershire and the East Midlands, and feel now is the time to start thinking about a bathroom refurbishment in your home or work property, we can help. Synergy Plumbing Services specialise in bathroom renovations and we can take care of the whole process, from design to installation. With superb aftercare to boot, a bathroom refurbishment is an exciting project for any property owner and should lead to stunning results. Here are some things to consider along the way.
How do I plan my new bathroom layout?
With the help of Synergy, the best approach is to look at the existing layout. What does, and doesn’t work? What could be improved? There are practical elements to consider such as where the pipes and electrical points are currently placed, and whether these should be repositioned. And it’s not just the toilet and basin that you need to consider when it comes to bathroom reconfiguration, you also need to take into account accessories such as radiators and towel rails.
How can I make the most of the available space in my bathroom?
Positioning units and fixtures against the bathroom walls rather than situating them in the centre is a great way to maximise space. In particularly small spaces, give thought to the type of door that you use. An inward facing door could be replaced with one that opens outwards, or you could even swap your door for a sliding option. You could also give some thought as to whether you need a tub in a particular room if a shower will suffice.
In houses where there are mixed age groups, or in properties owned by older people or those with mobility issues, it is worth thinking about whether or not your bathroom should be disabled access friendly. Synergy can install walk-in baths and sit-down showers in addition to stability rails and a whole host of other safety measures.
