Some key things to think about are: Is it a family bathroom? If so, you'll probably want to factor in lots of storage space. Do you always shower and rarely bathe? Consider a standalone shower or wet room instead of installing a bath you won't use. If you like baths and showers, a bath with a shower it gives you a flexible option. Is space at a premium? Think about how you could incorporate storage cupboards on the walls rather than floor – maybe above the bath or even built in underneath. Do you want to use your bathroom to relax in? Consider getting a freestanding bath for a luxurious feel, and having somewhere close by to store candles and magazines. Are you a couple sharing the bathroom? How about getting two basins to make getting ready in the morning less chaotic? If someone will be using it to do make-up or dress in, then you'll want to make sure there is plenty of light and a decent-sized mirror. Asking yourself these questions will help you refine the little changes to make or elements to incorporate that will make a lot of difference to your bathroom and your enjoyment of it.
If you're not sure you can afford an entirely new bathroom, there are ways to give your existing one a fresh new look on a budget and without replacing the sanitary ware (the toilet, bath, sink and shower). First, you'll need to do a thorough clean. If the grouting is mouldy, try using a specialist cleaning product, available from supermarkets and DIY stores. If that doesn't work, buy an anti-mould grout-reviving pen, which you can get in black or white depending on the colour of your grouting. If you choose to redo the grouting altogether, use a sealer that will help prevent staining and mould growth in the future. To help prevent the mould coming back, try to leave the bathroom window open after showering or, if there isn't a window, install an extractor fan and leave the door open when you leave the room. If you are lucky enough to have a cast-iron bath but the ceramic covering has started to crack, consider buying a resurfacing kit or hiring someone to do a professional job for you, rather than replacing it. When you come to sell your home, buyers tend to rate period features.
The Inkstone bathtub by Steve Leung is another example of a product which impresses through simplicity and quality. Its design is refined and elegant and it's easy to imagine all sorts of sophisticated bathtub surrounds and chic bathroom decors that go with it. We suggest a casual-chic approach. The Burlesque tub designed by Giorgio Silla has an ovaloide shape which in itself is enough to make it stand out from other similar products. In addition to that this tub is carved out of a single solid block of stone. Its exterior is quite sculptural but in a simple and elegant manner. Kalla bathtub, its design is a harmonious balance between the intrinsic beauty of marble as a material and the rather special shape which suggests a rectangle but with curved corners for a more delicate and pleasant look.
