Everyone dreams of having a beautiful and contemporary bathroom that is the perfect place to relax and wind down, but it can be challenging to know where to start to ensure it has that WOW factor.

However, before the installation begins, many things need to be considered, such as evaluating your bathroom space, thinking about what you want your dream bathroom to look like, ensuring you understand the measurements of your space and, finally, designing the perfect bathroom.

Read on to discover what our bathroom fitters in Birmingham believe are the key stages to beginning your luxury bathroom renovation project and how Bayliss Bathrooms will manage all stages of the renovation to ensure reaching your bathroom goals is simple and stress-free.

Evaluating your bathroom

Before starting your luxury bathroom renovation, you need to know what you want to achieve with your project.

Consider whether you want your new bathroom to have a central focal point, such as double basins or a stylish free-standing bath or whether you want to install a luxury wet room, storage space that is stylish and discreet, or underfloor heating and mood lighting for that extra bit of luxury.

Understanding what you want out of your bathroom will then provide the perfect foundation for a successful renovation, so be sure to know your preferences, from likes and dislikes to budget, and everything in between.

Seeking inspiration through gathering online mood boards of what you like can also help with a better understanding of which colours and styles you want to feature in your new luxury bathroom.

Measuring up your bathroom

Now you know what you want in your dream bathroom, you need to have a clear understanding of your bathroom measurements.

You can start to think about which fixtures and features will work within the size of your space, and how they can be placed to best utilise to ensure your new luxury bathroom has a spacious and modern feel.

Additionally, getting your measurements right is crucial when it comes to planning your bathroom layout and understanding when any technical installation work will need to be carried out when adding luxury wet rooms, lighting, or even underfloor heating.

Working with Bayliss Bathrooms, our team will come out and take these measurements on your behalf, ensuring accuracy and leaving you with more time to focus on the important things, such as the design of your bathroom.

Designing your new bathroom

With the right measurements for your bathroom, you can now start on your initial design concept.

Working with an experienced architect for a bathroom remodel can help you ensure your bathroom has a fresh and contemporary feel, using the right materials, features and lighting to make it ooze with luxury.

Explore some of our luxury bathroom installation case studies:

  • Our master suite renovation used a beautiful egg-shaped freestanding bath under the window as a central feature with spotlighting underneath creating a warm glow.
  • We also renovated a large ensuite, adding a luxurious and contemporary double shower with light and modern grey and white marble tiling and glass frame.

Want to create the perfect bathroom? Our bathroom interior designers can work with you to identify the fittings and fixtures, meet your style requirements and even help you find the right materials, including eco-friendly bathroom materials that still promise luxury.
