Preparation is key

Get clear on your measurements

Ensure you have accurate room measurements and layout plans, including any doorways, windows, or nib walls. It's handy to also have existing plumbing and drainage location information on hand.

Product Dimensions

Utilise our Imagin3D tool, our 3D Planner to help you create a visual representation of your bathroom. This tool can help you understand how different products will fit within the space and really start creating a clear visual. Hot tip: This is also a great tool to share with your team of trades and consultants to communicate your plan.

Build a checklist:

Develop a checklist encompassing all the decisions and orders you need to make. This methodical approach helps you keep track and ensures no important aspect is overlooked. Rest assured our team of consultants can help you with this and through consultation will prompt you with questions on your requirements.

Prioritise your preferences:

Identify which product features matter most to you, be it sustainability, a bath for the family, Australian made products, smart technology integration, or specific delivery timelines. Think about modern additions like LED mirrors, Smart Toilets, sensor tapware, and thermostatic shower mixers to enhance convenience and potentially increase your bathroom's resale value. If you have any questions, add them to your checklist to raise with your consultant.
