What to Consider When Choosing Your Bathroom Accessories and Fittings

With so many types of bathroom fittings and accessories to choose from, it’s easy to get overly excited.

But before you over purchase for your new bathroom, here are some factors to consider when shopping!

DECIDING ON A THEME FOR YOUR BATHROOM

Flo Designs: Scandinavian Theme

Fancy an all-white modern and contemporary theme, or perhaps you’re going for a beachy resort feel with sandy and natural colours?

Deciding on a theme can help narrow down your choices when it comes to bathroom fittings and accessories.

PRACTICALITY AND USAGE OF YOUR BATHROOM

Ease of Cleaning

As busy homeowners, we all want a bathroom that requires minimal up keeping while looking effortlessly stunning.

Hence, some things to keep in mind when planning your bathroom include:

  • Avoid toilets with lower quality plastic cistern. They tend to discolour into an unpleasant shade of yellow over time.
  • Heavily framed showers collect lots of dust. Instead, opt for frameless showers as they are easier to keep clean while allowing more light in for a much brighter and airy space.
  • As much as possible, choose large tiles instead of smaller ones. Less grooves between tiles means less grime gets accumulated. This translates into more free time!

Family Friendly Bathroom

Keeping your bathroom family-friendly can create a safer and more comfortable space for your family for years to come.

  • Accessibility

By incorporating flat surfaces and avoiding swing doors, you can free up space to move around.

  • Railings

Railings make it much easier and safer for older folks to move around.

  • Floor surface

To prevent slipping when the floor is wet, go for tiles that are at least R10 slip rated.

Space Planning

Before you go all in and purchase everything you like, consider the size of your bathroom. This will determine the kind of appliances and fittings you can accommodate.

Some things to consider when planning bathroom spaces include:

  • Front toilet clearance

It’s recommended to place your toilet bowls facing a wall or door. This ensures sufficient room to take care of needs, while keeping the door unobstructed.

  • Side toilet clearance

If you’re placing your toilet bowls next to a wall, leave some room between them. This eases the cleaning process and allows for more comfortable usage.

    • Style of fittings

Bathroom by I-Chapter

There are a few trending items that look great and work well even for smaller bathrooms in Singapore. Two of such trends are vessel sinks and floating vanity counters.

Designing the Perfect Bathroom for Your Family

These tips and trends are here to guide and provide some direction for you. Make the choices for yourself to see if they fit into your new home and add your own creative flair to them!
