There are lots of technical terms used to describe different types of lighting and light fittings, so if you’re feeling a little lost amongst the terminology, check out our handy jargon buster.
The bathroom is quite unlike most other rooms in the home as it has different requirements when it comes to keeping warm; it is usually damp and humid, we are often undressed in there, it is the first place we visit when we get up in the mornings, and it is smaller than other spaces in the home. All these factors - and more - make for some very specific heating requirements.
Bathroom radiators come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, materials and types and it can be difficult to know what to choose. The decision to purchase a particular type of bathroom radiator takes into account personal taste, budget, space considerations, safety, timescale for installation, energy efficiency and many other factors.
The ideal space saver, underfloor heating is becoming an increasingly popular choice for bathroom heating. Having the main heat source at the lowest point in the room is very efficient as heat rises, giving you the pleasure of stepping onto a lovely warm floor after a bath or shower.
When it comes to choosing your bathroom heating solution, there are a whole host of decisions and choices to be made to ensure you get the right heating system for your bathroom. Once you have decided on a heating system for your space, there are a handful of other fittings you’ll need to purchase alongside the system itself.
The bath tub is pretty much the centrepiece to any bathroom, even if you’re not creating a designer statement room. A bath tub isn’t something you’ll be replacing very often, so that’s why it’s so important to find one that’s right for you.
When it comes to choosing a new tub you’ll really feel spoilt for choice. One of the best ways to start narrowing down the list is to decide whether or not you want a freestanding or an inset bath. This decision will largely depend on how much space you’ve got to play with. Any bath is the centre piece and focal point of a bathroom, so it’s best to choose something that’s going to work well in the space.
Space is one of the main things to keep in mind when it comes to choosing a new bath. The size and shape of your bathroom will influence the size and shape of your new tub. While more generously sized rooms offer the luxury of choice, smaller or more awkwardly shaped rooms will need slightly more consideration.
Style and appearance are important when it comes to selecting your new tub and, of course, you’ll want it to be the perfect fit for your bathroom. More important than style, however, is practicality. It’s important to consider how you’re going to use your tub before you invest.
