The Triple Threat bathrooms were pretty dilapidated but that can actually be a bonus as it's essentially a blank canvas, which presents an opportunity to create something that really works for you.
You need to think about what you want in your bathroom.
Do you want a freestanding bath, island or flush to wall bath? Do you need a double basin? Shower recess?
This is the opportunity to think about who is going to use the bathroom and create a layout and experience that suits their needs.
This size guide will help you plan your bathroom layout:
Plus you should plan for the following spacing allowances:
Step Two: Plumbing
With the layout in place, you can start thinking about plumbing. This will include the waste outlet for your shower.
You will also need to include a fall in your shower base that runs towards the drain. Australian standards state that you have to have at least a 10mm fall every 600mm.
This may be a good opportunity to consult a plumber to ensure that the plans you’ve laid down are feasible.
Step Three: Interior Design
Now you’re into the styling and design stage. It's time to browse for room ideas, magazines and social media sites for inspiration and ideas.
Our Room Ideas galleries are full of inspiration and our instant Scan and Play tile visualiser lets you see any tile in our range in a real room. If you need a little help with bathroom design our Complete Bathroom Packages will be your rescue.
The next step is to get yourself down to your local tile store. We have 100 outlets nationwide and Australia's biggest range of tiles, so naturally we'd recommend you visit Beaumont Tiles.
