PLANNING YOUR BATHROOM CAREFUL PLANNING AND RESEARCH IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS WITH ANY NEW BATHROOM. Fitting a new bathroom is a chance to review how you want to use the room. Think about who uses it and how much space you have. Get a good idea of what you want from your new bathroom before you start and it will make your planning that bit easier. Start by accurately measuring the internal dimensions of your bathroom, taking doors, windows and radiators into account as well as any architectural features such as sloping ceilings. Mark the existing plumbing points such as water supplies, water and soil outlets. Now experiment with the layout of your new bathroom. Take time to explore the possibilities, check the dimensions of each item you are considering and make sure there is enough activity space around each item. Wherever possible try and use the existing plumbing - it can be costly and time-consuming to re-route the water supply and waste pipes. Sometimes however, moving sanitaryware around may considerably improve your space. Seek professional advice from a qualified plumber. Once you have confirmed the new layout of your new bathroom, you can decide on how you want your bathroom to look and feel. Bathrooms are usually the smallest room in the house, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. Reflective surfaces such as chrome, glass and shiny tiles will help bounce light around the room. Clever lighting can be used to create the mood of the room, and with several different lighting options, you can transform your bathroom from a bright, functional area to one with a softly lit, relaxing atmosphere. Remember to plan your lighting so that the necessary electrical work can be done at the building stage. Spend a little extra on the flooring. Wipe-clean surfaces are the best and larger tiles can help create a sense of space. Don’t forget to create plenty of storage space, using fitted furniture or shelving, so you can tuck your medicines and beauty products out of sight. This will leave a beautiful, clutter-free space to relax in.

IMPORTANT INSTALLATION INFORMATION A key element in the performance of a bathroom is the quality of the installation. We recommend you use a plumber from a registered association (see below) and consult him (or her) right from the start. Your local Ideal Standard stockist may offer a plumbing service or, if not, will be able to recommend a qualified plumber.
