I get it, planning a new bathroom can become overwhelming with the array of options available on the market. Plus, visiting showrooms nowadays is a bit tricky. Luckily, bathroom specialists across the country have made it easier to visualise and bring your dream space to life through virtual bathroom design tools. Sounds fun, right?
Let’s take a look at some of the best virtual bathroom design tools for easy at-home planning…
The 3D bathroom planner from Villeroy & Boch
The great thing about this tool is that you can either start completely from scratch with an empty room template or begin from a pre-planned template – are you team bath or team shower? Think about the room size and shape, must-have elements you would like to include and what style of bathroom you would like to go for – for example do you want to create a spa-like space or do want to renovate your guest bathroom? Choose from a wide range of fittings – from radiators and windows to walls and connections – and decide on furniture designs, toilets and basins. When you’re happy with your new bathroom plan, click save, print the floor plan, 3D view and sketch and receive your list of items, plus the checklist for planning your bathroom.
Duravit’s bathroom planner
Ever thought you could design your bathroom in four easy steps? Well, design experts at Duravit have created plenty of pre-designed templates, to make planning your bathroom easier, no matter the size of your space. So, choose a plan, set the dimensions and add other bathroom elements, such as windows and doors. On the next step, you can include the essentials, such as a bath or a shower (or both!), toilet, basin and furniture. Visualise your new bathroom, get in touch with one of their specialist dealers and make your dream space come true.
