Buying furnishings and fittings for a new home or for a home you’re renovating can be a daunting process. With bathrooms in particular, the sheer volume and variety of different products and styles available can be quite overwhelming. If you are interested in buying your first bathroom suite, you will want to follow these valuable tips:
1. Best Value
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Ensure you choose a suite that will actually save you money. Make sure that you are selecting a matching suite that provides a discount over what purchasing each individual piece would cost. This is one of the biggest advantages of buying a suite, they more often than not come out as the best value compared to buying separates.
2. Design Choices
Of course you want to select a suite that complements your home but take that little bit of extra time to look around to ensure you get the best design for your home. Make sure that whatever you select, it works with and not against the rest of your home’s current and medium term future styling and furniture options. Remember also to optimise your use of available space. You can find bathroom suites particularly designed for those bathrooms that are on the smaller side.
3. Match Accessories
If the suite you are interested in purchasing has a range of associated products and accessories, you may want to consider investing in those as well. It will help you in creating a unified look for the whole room.
4. Balance is Key
Find the optimal balance between price and quality because you really do get what you pay for. While many new bathroom suites are designed to be very cheap in an attempt to appeal to the widest market possible, sometimes they are unfortunately of much lower quality. You will notice the difference if you pay for steel, cast iron or quality acrylic versus very cheap plastics. The good news is that many online bathroom supplies stores offer premium quality goods at heavily discounted prices so you can keep to your budget without compromising on quality.
5. Wonderful White
White will likely never go out of fashion as far as bathroom design is concerned. Stay with this simple, traditional colour, and you should never have an issue integrating the design or décor of your bathroom with the rest of your home. Don’t be afraid to stray from white though if you have a very specific colour choice you’re wanting to implement.
Choosing your first bathroom suite doesn’t have to be completely overwhelming if you just stick to these basic tips and seek out bathroom supply experts who can consultatively assist you in making the best selection to fit your own personal needs. And remember, you don’t have to only use one bathroom suite, it’s entirely possible to play mix and match with products from a variety of suites. By doing this you will find your own custom design really stands out and will bring you years of enjoyment.
