Bathrooms South-West London is one of our key services at Kluk Construction. Over the years we’ve crafted many new spaces that are functional as well as attractive. Interestingly, as a nation, we’re also living much longer according to UK National Statistics. If you’d like to learn more read on for our guide to designing a future-proof bathroom.
Future-proofing your bathroom begins with scrutinising the space because a genuinely good scheme will suit everyone and work for any stage of life. Start by thinking about who lives here now and how this may change as time moves on. For instance, will you be caring for elderly relatives or will you yourself still live here in your old age? By getting the layout right now then it’s likely you’ll save on having to do any more updates in the future. Any required additions down the line should also be done now such as a walk-in shower with step-free access.
When it comes to bathroom design it’s important to choose a palette you won’t grow tired of. Teal tiles are big now but will they be in three years? Neutral colours are probably much safer. Natural stone is one good pick with a feature wall of mosaic tiles. Then there’s fixtures and fittings in brass, chrome or black which will pull the overall look together.
The bathroom is one of the most used rooms and therefore deserves an excellent suite. If you choose to scrimp on this then you’ll regret it later when the room quickly begins to look dated. Brands like GROHE, Vitra and Laufen are all leading bathroom furniture designers. These brands may cost you more upfront but in the long run, less and are likely to leave a lasting impression.
Walk-in showers are an accessible option for all ages and are safe for users with mobility needs. Not only that but they can also boost value, adding up to 5% according to Nationwide. Then there are digital measures such as smart showers to achieve the perfect bathroom experience. Never be scalded again with pre-set water temperatures and future-proof safety features.
They say less is more so when it comes to the home, keeping it simple speaks volumes. It’s also key for restoring the balance of our overworked senses – what better way than with bathroom design? Avoid any radical trends and instead invest in an appealing and timeless style. This will also come in if you ever wish to sell up, a classic style always wins.
