Bernardo Martinez, from Plum-Mex Bathroom Showroom in Farnham, shares his top tips to make renovating and creating your dream bathroom a breeze – whatever its shape or size.

Step 1: Speak to an expert

“The first thing I tell every client is to arrange a home visit. An expert will survey your existing bathroom, take measurements and offer recommendations for how best to use the space,” says Bernardo.

Plum-Mex can then create precise 3-D designs to give you a sense of what your finished bathroom will look like. You can ensure that everything fits and you have the correct plumbing system for the fixtures that you want.

Step 2: Choosing the perfect bathroom fittings

Thinking about what you want most from your bathroom will help you decide what fittings you need.

Add comfort and luxury to your bathroom with the Geberit Aquaclean shower toilet. At the touch of a button, a gentle jet spray of warm water extends to leave you feeling fresh after every use. You can control the temperature and intensity of the water spray. The toilet comes with a heated seat, an odour extraction unit, and a discreet orientation light on its base to help guide you at night.

If you love relaxing in the shower, consider installing a large walk-in fixture. A larger vanity will give you more storage for your toiletries and double basins can work well in bathrooms used by the whole family.

Step 3: Consider the overall look and feel of your bathroom

Choose products from a complete bathroom series to give the space a unified, collective look.

For a minimalist, subtle bathroom design stick with classic, simple fittings. The Geberit Smyle range works well for creating a clean and functional bathroom.

“I’d recommend the Geberit iCon series for smaller bathrooms - reduced depth washbasins and compact storage solutions will help you make the most of the space,” says Bernardo.

Water-saving toilets, like the ones in the Geberit Acanto series, can make your bathroom more eco-friendly. They reduce the amount of water used when flushing.

Step 4: Use a bathroom supplier that can oversee all aspects of your bathroom renovation

Find a bathroom specialist that can take care of every part of your bathroom renovation. This will make planning and designing your new bathroom much easier.

Plum-Mex consult with you on the project, discuss your ideas and offer professional advice. They can order the fittings in-store, design, fit and install your new bathroom.

“We’ll be on hand to help you every step of the way, making the process quicker and a lot less stressful,” Bernardo says.
