Top tips for designing your dream bathroom

Posted

Building a new home is the perfect opportunity to find inspiration by looking at home designs, house and land packages and South West display homes to see the construction quality of home builders and view the latest interior decor. One of the most exciting rooms to design and create is the bathroom.

While the bathroom can be overlooked, with your South West home builders you can create the ultimate ‘wow’ factor. You deserve a beautiful looking space to relax in soaking in a bath after a long day, so why not surround yourself with things you need – and want?

Here are some design inspiration tips to build the best new home bathroom – perfect for your family home.

Abundant storage

Work with your South West home builders of choice to create the most functional storage spaces in your bathroom. When you walk through South West display homes, take notes on where creative storage solutions are used. A minimal vanity can hide its drawers, cavity space under the benchtop is ideal for baskets for laundry or towels, and wall hung containers can be used for dental care items. Summit South West’s Eclipse display home can show you how much storage space can be achieved in a dream bathroom!

Good lighting

Natural lighting is warm and inviting, so why not make the most of it? We spend a lot of time looking in the mirror so bringing in daylight can make a big difference. Consider creating a stunning view from your bath with a floor to ceiling window, just like we have done in our Freshwater display. This will provide you with an abundance of natural light, perfect for getting ready in the morning! Alternatively, if there’s not a lot of natural light available, consider uplights or LED downlights to help make your bathroom light and bright. 

Cleaning made easy

Save time on cleaning your dream bathroom with clever wall mounted toilets, vanities and faucets. Using solid-surface choices for your walls, vanity and floors will not only add beauty to your bathroom, but you won’t have to worry about cleaning grout. With South West home builder Summit South West, you have the luxury of creating your own look with a big selection of Essastone benchtops – which come with the choice of a double vanity upgrade! View our Capella and Orchard display homes to see how it can be done.

Mirrored wall placement

Next time you go through some South West display homes, see what type of mirrors are used to create the illusion of a bigger space. Ask yourself, how does a standard mirror above a vanity stack up against mirrors running wall-to-wall without visible fixings?

Ensure adequate ventilation

Ventilation is vital in bathrooms because moisture in the air can lead to condensation and mould growth, and there are simple ways to avoid this as well as foggy mirrors and dampness. A big standard window or bi-folds is the obvious choice, but look at ventilated skylights, exhaust fans and roof windows as well.
