It is essential you thoroughly plan your bathroom design to ensure no mistakes are made during the renovation process, which could end up costing you a lot money that could have been avoided had the planning been up to scratch. Use CAD bathroom software to plan your room to its exact dimensions so you can properly work out which fixtures look best where and how you can create the most space in your bathroom. Careful planning will make sure your bathroom ends up the way you want it without avoiding any costly mistakes.


Even though you may not have considered it in your planning, bathroom lighting is an extremely important feature and can help transform your room. You’ll need both task and mood lighting to make your bathroom complete, feature lighting is a must if you can afford to splash out!

You should first consider the size of your bathroom and the amount of natural light it lets in. If your bathroom is small and only lets minimal amounts of natural light in, you should find lighting that will give the illusion of space and give your bathroom a light and airy feel. If you do get a lot of natural light, through a large window for example, then you should concentrate on lights that will maximise space when it’s dark outside. You’d be surprised how lighting can really make a small bathroom look much larger than it actually is.

When planning your bathroom you want to ensure the lighting is modern yet practical for all of your daily needs. First you should consider task lighting, this is the practical side of lighting, you’ll need task lighting to ensure you can carry out all the usual bathroom day-to-day activities. For example, you’ll need enough light surrounding your mirror so you can apply makeup or shave and not miss any bits! Consider a dimmer switch if you like to be woken up in the morning with a bright light and you can tone this down for a relaxing evening bath.

If you can afford to purchase feature lighting, why not try downlights above the shower to illuminate it and make the cubicle look more luxurious? You can also purchase taps with built-in LEDs that will change the colour of the water as it flows, this is a very fancy effect but these little touches can really transform a bathroom. You can also purchase fancy backlit tiles to really show off your bathroom lighting.

Another way to improve a bathroom is to install a fancy shower head. No matter what the size of the your bathroom is, you can still create a sophisticated look. Try a monsoon shower head if you only have a small space to play with and are installing an over bath shower head. Monsoon shower heads look modern and are extremely powerful, ensuring you have a shower that looks superb and works brilliantly.

If your bathroom is large, you may have the space to install a wet room. If you are thinking of doing this, it’s best to consult a specialist as the drainage and waterproofing in the room must be just right. You will probably need help choosing the appropriate wall and floor coverings.

You can judge how much space you will need for your wet room using bathroom planner software.
