4 Signs your Bathroom layout isn’t working for you
The bathroom is one of the most useful rooms in the home, and unfortunately one of the more costly and complicated ones to deal with when it comes to renovating. While it is easy to pretend that your bathroom is functioning well for you and your family, there are a few things that you might be overlooking that could make all the difference when it comes to the layout.
Here are some of the signs to be looking for that might suggest that the current layout of your bathroom is no longer right for you, and that it might be time to renovate.
The space isn’t working anymore
What works for a single person, or even a couple, is often not the type of bathroom that works well for a young family. If you are finding that using your bathroom with young children is difficult, perhaps because you have a large walk-in shower and no bath, then this can be a good indication that your current bathroom layout is simply not working for you anymore.
You lack storage
An untidy bathroom is never a good thing and while you might think that your bathroom is too small to add storage that simply isn’t true. Even the smallest of bathrooms can be adapted to provide some storage. If your bathroom is permanently untidy, then this is a good sign that you need to add some storage. Whether you choose to add freestanding storage or fitted units that work with your bathroom suite consider your new layout carefully to ensure you select something that works well for you.
As you get older, you may find that getting in and out of the bath can be very difficult. Installing some safety features may help to make your bathroom less glamorous, but it might be necessary to accept that you need to make it more accessible. A well-converted bathroom with a large shower unit could be the answer to, providing you with a more user-friendly layout.
If you have a separate shower cubicle and bath, but you find yourself only ever using the one, then your current bathroom layout probably isn’t the best one for you. Why not look at changing the layout you do have to create a more spacious bathroom that fits your needs. Perhaps an extra-large bath or a stunning walk-in shower would work better.
