Showing up to a Showroom for Bathrooms


Embarking on the journey to choose a new bathroom suite is an exciting yet pivotal moment. Making the most out of your showroom visit involves thorough preparation.

We’ve helped thousands of bathroom journey’s over the years and know it can be a daunting task on where to start.

Here’s an in-depth guide based on our years of experience on what to bring to ensure your time is not only productive but also enlightening.

An Idea of Measurements

This will usually be the first question that a bathroom designer will ask you. While it’s not expected for you to have measured to the millimetre, a rough idea of the size of the room will give the designer ideas on what will and won’t work in your space.

It’s often broken down into two parts

Room Dimensions: Provide measurements of your current bathroom space, encompassing length, width, and height. This foundational data offers designers insights into spatial constraints and opportunities, laying the groundwork for an optimised design.

Window Size and Placement: Don’t forget to note down the size and placement of windows. This information aids in planning the layout, maximising natural light sources for an optimal and inviting bathroom atmosphere.

A Visual of Your Current & Dream Space


Don’t worry there will be no judging of your current space! A picture is such an important thing for a designer. Capture your existing bathroom from various angles. These visuals provide designers with a clear understanding of the current space, enabling them to envision potential improvements. Additionally, bring along images of bathrooms that inspire you. Don’t get tied up on bathroom jargon just get as many visuals as possible!

Functional Insights


When it comes to the heart of your home—the bathroom—understanding its dynamics is paramount. Beyond the mere aesthetics, sharing insights into the daily challenges you encounter becomes a pivotal aspect of our collaborative design process.

Be it storage limitations, concerns about lighting, or specific layout constraints. Your insights guide our designers in crafting solutions that go beyond aesthetics, ensuring your new bathroom is not just visually stunning but also tailored to enhance your daily routines.

Lifestyle Considerations


Consider the needs of your family. If your bathroom serves a family, communicate the specific needs and preferences of each family member. This could influence decisions on features like bathtub size, storage capacity, or accessibility considerations.

Discuss your daily routines and habits, offering insights into how you use the bathroom daily. This can inform decisions on fixtures, storage, and layout.

Budgeting Guidelines

In your quest for the perfect bathroom, a clear understanding of your budget is pivotal. By openly communicating your budget range, you empower our designers to curate proposals that not only align with your financial expectations but elevate your vision within the set budgetary constraints.

This collaboration ensures that every design recommendation is not just a reflection of your style but also a testament to the art of achieving sophistication without compromise.
