Planning your bathroom

A guide to designing a bathroom that works for you

Whether you’re designing a bathroom from scratch or renovating an existing space, it’s useful to spend some time exploring what your ideal bathroom looks like. From a relaxing haven from the outside world to a vibrant and modern space full of the latest technology, hansgrohe is on hand to guide you through your options.

The freedom of the new

Designing for a new build gives your imagination the freedom to run wild. From the floor plan to the decor, everything can be tailored to your own tastes and requirements. It’s also a chance to integrate some of the most innovative technology, ensuring that your bathroom fulfils your needs well into the future.

Personal priorities

Use our checklists to methodically work through the design and planning stages for your new bathroom.  

The first step is to consider who will be using your bathroom - is it just for you, or are there young children or perhaps older parents who will share it? It’s worth considering its use not just today, but for the future as well. Designing a multigenerational bathroom gives you peace of mind that your investment will serve your whole family long-term, and hansgrohe offers a wealth of attractive designs that offer both form and function.
