What to Consider When Visiting a Bathroom Showroom



How to Get the Most Out of Your Bathroom Showroom Visit

When it comes to renovating your bathroom, there’s a lot to consider beyond simply choosing the bath-shower, tiles, basin, toilet and other amenities.

Bathroom renovations are big investments, so you want to ensure you end up with a beautiful, functional space tailored to your needs and lifestyle. It’s particularly significant if you plan to stay in your home for a few more years or are planning to sell it soon. Enhancing your home with a luxury bespoke bathroom is one of the best things you can do as a homeowner, but for some, it’s challenging to know where to start.

One of the best ways to start your luxury bathroom project by visiting a bathroom showroom.

At a showroom like Village Bathrooms’ one in Uckfield, you can get inspired by exquisite displays, explore product options, and consult with bathroom design experts to guide your vision. However, to truly make the most of your showroom visit, it’s important to arrive prepared with the right questions in mind.

Here are some key areas to focus on:


Establish Your Bathroom Renovation Budget

One of the first things any bathroom designer will ask is your budgeted investment for the project. While cost is always a bit of an awkward topic, having an open and honest discussion about your financial parameters is vital.

Determining your budget ahead of time allows the designer to guide you towards a design that fits within it. Therefore, this avoids unnecessary wasted time and ensures you end up with a bespoke, functional, and nice-looking bathroom you can afford.


Define Who the Space is For

Will this be a shared family bathroom, a relaxing personal ensuite, or a setup designed with accessibility in mind?

Figuring out who will be using the space can influence the entire design approach, with bathroom specialists factoring in your unique circumstances when piecing together mock-ups during your consultation in-store.

If mobility or ageing in place is a consideration, ask about bathroom accessibility features that can be seamlessly integrated without compromising on style.

Determine Your Preferred Bathroom Design Style

Do you lean towards traditional luxury bathrooms with classic lines and antiqued fixtures? Does a sleek, modern bathroom with tidy minimalism appeal more? Or perhaps you prefer to blend both contemporary and traditional bathroom elements.

Having a sense of your favourite design style provides a starting point for the designer, though you’ll also want to keep an open mind to creative ideas you may not have considered.

Even if you’re stuck for bathroom design ideas, or have an open mind, a showroom visit can provide a great source of inspiration. Exploring what’s on display in the showroom and shooting ideas back and forth with a designer can be tremendously beneficial.


Explore Opportunities for the Space

Often, homeowners make assumptions about the limitations of a bathroom’s existing layout, thinking that small bathrooms must maintain its current setup. However, don’t let this deter you; our experienced designers have encountered many challenging spaces and can identify opportunities you may have missed.

If you’re concerned about your current bathroom’s poor lighting, lack of storage space, impractical layout, and more, then let the designer suggest creative bathroom solutions to transform the room.

During your showroom visit, don’t be afraid to ask about factors like timing, any potential access or preparation needed, protective measures for the rest of the home during the project, and more. Complete transparency is key.
