If you’re thinking of giving your bathroom a complete renovation, you might be wondering what elements to include to increase style and comfort.  From showers and baths to heating and tiling, there’s a lot of different elements to consider.

Here are 5 must-haves for the modern bathroom.

A walk-in shower

Walk-in showers don’t just exude luxury but can be a good practical option for your bathroom.  So, if you’re thinking of fitting a new shower don’t be tempted to go for a standard over the bath set-up. If you have plenty of room to add a large shower enclosure, use it to create something special. A walk-in shower provides a seamless space, with plenty of room to install a stylish rainfall showerhead.

Underfloor heating

If you’re completely renovating your bathroom, then adding underfloor heating is a great choice for luxury.  The bathroom can be a cold space, so underfloor heating will make it nice and cozy.  Although more expensive to install than a radiator, the heating is more efficient. This hidden heating system is a great option if you’re a fan of clean lines.

A freestanding bathtub

If you have room for a shower and bath, then consider installing a freestanding tub.  These come in various shapes and sizes, with some real wow factor designs available.  Glossy white oval-shaped tubs are a popular choice for modern bathrooms, but there are brands that also allow you to customize your tub with your preferred color. A great way to add a bit of personality.

A floating toilet

Toilets have long been the ugly duckling in the bathroom suite.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.  If you’re going for a whole new suite don’t forget to put as much thought into the toilet as you do the bath and shower.

Floating or wall hung toilets look instantly more classy than conventional ones, with their cisterns hidden and a sleek flush plate rather than a handle.  They’re also easy to clean, which is a nice bonus. 

Porcelain tiles

Choosing bathroom tiles is often the thing that takes the longest, especially with all the options available on the market.  Porcelain tiles are the most durable option and one of the easiest to maintain.  If you want to create a brighter bathroom glossy tiles will reflect the natural light around the room.  But matt tiles can create a more natural and calming look.
