Things To Consider When Planning Your Bathroom


I recently wrote a blog post about sprucing up our bathroom, where I briefly mentioned that I was adding accessories into our bathroom. It now has become a frequent topic of conversation between my better half and I what our ideal bathroom would be like. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the space to have a nice big bath, under a window, with a walk in shower and his and hers sinks? Yes, it would, but in reality that’s never going to happen as we simply do not have the space.

I have been toying with the idea of getting a walk in shower, my grandma often comes over but will never spend the night as she simply can’t get into the bath. We do have a shower but it is over the bath meaning you have to step over the bath to use it. If we were to get a low-level access shower, my grandma would be able to get full use out of it too. Premier bathrooms do walk-in showers that have been specifically designed to allow everyone to enjoy a comfortable, relaxing shower with complete confidence and safety. For us, we get the walk in shower we want, which looks stylish and fancy – but also it caters for the elderly too, as my grandma wouldn’t have a problem using it if she was to stay over.

Bathrooms are some of the most commonly remodeled spaces in anyone's house. It is easy to see why; we spend a bunch of time in there everyday, looking at ourselves in the mirrors and getting ready. We are bound to want that space to be pretty and relaxing. It is very easy to forget why you are remodeling though. I’m 24 and making a bathroom accessible to the elderly has never been a priority to me, but the more I have been thinking about it, the more I believe it would benefit us to. 

When we do eventually purchase our own home, it will be our forever house, somewhere for us to raise Emily, and then grow old together, enjoying each other’s company. If I am going to spend out all that money to get a lovely new bathroom, why wouldn’t I get one that is accessible for everyone, because who knows what the future holds. I would love to hear what things you consider when you plan your new bathroom?
