Top tips for planning your new bathroom

Get in touch to discuss your next project

A new bathroom is a big investment.  It’s not something that should be taken lightly, nor should it be rushed.  That’s why at Precise, we walk our clients through the new bathroom journey – we encourage them not to run.

From our point of view, it’s really important to help you make the right decisions when it comes to planning your new bathroom investment, and that’s where Stuart, our Sales and Marketing Manager really comes into his own.  If you fancy getting to know Stuart a bit, you can read a bit about him here.

In the meantime, ask anyone who knows Stuart, and they’ll say his biggest work skill is listening, and really getting to know his clients.  No matter whether your new bathroom investment is relatively minor, or off the scale major, Stuart’s approach is the same.  It’s the same because he knows that the outcome is really important to you, and he wants you to be happy.  He also knows that your bathroom is more than likely the first place you head to in the morning and the last place you head to at night, so it can have a big impact on how you feel throughout the day.

If you do a Google search about planning a new bathroom you’ll get offered lots of articles and videos about bathroom design, but our advice is that you should start at a more basic level than that.  In fact, we’d even encourage you to leave the bathroom design to the bathroom designers.  By all means, flick through Pinterest, Instagram or interiors magazines to get inspiration for your bathroom, but unless you’re a wizard with a computer or with pen and paper, stop ahead of the design stage.

Here’s what we’d recommend you focus on:

  1. Who? One of the first things to ask yourself is WHO is going to use the bathroom you’re planning?  Is it an intimate en suite for your master bedroom that’ll only be used by a couple of people at the most?  Or is it the only bathroom in your home, therefore one that will greet guests as well as family members?  Or it might be a ‘spare’, overspill bathroom that will only get used from time to time?  Either way, knowing who will use your bathroom won’t only affect who gets involved in deciding what goes into it, it’ll also affect things like the decoration, the storage space, the investment and the importance of choosing hard-wearing materials.
  2. What? The next thing we’d suggest you focus on is WHAT you like about your current bathroom.  What don’t you like?  What have you spotted in places you’ve visited, on social media or in interior magazines that you’d like included in your new bathroom?  At this stage, it’s a great idea to take photos, make cuttings from mags, and even go as far as creating a vision board if you’re that way inclined.  Knowing what you like, and dislike, will help Stuart when it comes to making design recommendations and helping you select the most appropriate fixtures and fittings.
  3. Why? WHY are you re-doing your bathroom or creating a new one?  Why have you decided to invest your hard-earned cash into this room in your home?  Why do you feel your current bathroom isn’t satisfying your needs any longer?  Understanding these reasons and frustrations will help Stuart make sure that your new bathroom ticks all your boxes and a whole lot more.
  4. How much do you want to spend and how are you going to fund it? Having a budget in mind will help no end when it comes to making your bathroom journey easier and faster for you.  Bathrooms are like most things in life, prices range from the very reasonable to the downright ridiculous.  At Precise we deal with everything from conservative through to luxury bathrooms and can help you get the very best value for money once we know how much you’re expecting to spend. The other bit about your finances is of course how you’re going to fund your new bathroom.  Are you planning on using your savings or are you looking to borrow?  That decision is of course yours, but the good news is that at Precise we can help with finance too*.

So, as you can see, at Precise we take your bathroom investment really seriously.  We put as much effort into helping you make the right decisions as we would if it were our own investment.  That’s only one of the things that really sets us apart from our competitors.

If you have a bathroom project in mind, we’d love to hear from you.  Reach out and let’s get together to discuss it.
