Designing your bathroom isn’t always easy, especially when you don’t know where to start.

Our very own Stuart Kerr, Retail Operations Manager at BAGNODESIGN, features in The Resident Chelsea and shares his top 5 tips on how to achieve and enjoy your dream bathroom.

Start off by doing your research and with so many social media platforms to go to for sourcing inspiration, you won’t fall short of ideas. Whether traditional, retro, modern or something completely unique, Instagram, Pinterest and Houzz are all great digital look books to inspire you.

Creating a wish list is next on your “list” of to do’s. Depending on your property, how many bathrooms you have, who uses them etc, you will need to collate a list of things needed, to meet requirements as well as be practical and look amazing. A person living in a studio apartment will have different requirements to that of a family living in a house with several bathrooms for different purposes e.g. master bathroom, kids bathroom, guest/cloak room etc.

One that nobody ever wants to deal with is budget! Be realistic and stick to your budget, Kerr advises. Not only that, also set aside a contingency for “just in case” moments, and if still left at the end of the project, then you can use this towards completing the look with those all important finishing touches with beautiful accessories.

With the bathroom being a personal space where everyone spends time to relax at some point of the day, don’t be afraid to experiment and let your individuality shine through the materials and finishes you choose. Once you have proudly achieved your dream bathroom design, all that is left to do is to show it off!
