Ultimate Guide To Bathroom and Kitchen Design

If you’re planning a renovation project for your bathroom and kitchen, you must be aware of the remodelling mistakes that homeowners make. Let’s face it, a remodelling project is time-consuming and nerve-wracking. Being able to know the common mistakes will prevent setbacks and delays on your project.

To help you get started, we listed the DOs and DON’Ts we observe when we have a remodelling project at Mitcham Tiling.

Decorating Your Kitchen


Consider Lightning

Your kitchen should have good lighting. You need to consider natural lighting, the size of the fixtures, and the colour of the paint you’re going to use.

Add Backsplash

Having a backsplash can make a huge difference in how your kitchen looks. It’s one of the quickest and easiest ways to remodel your kitchen.

Upgrade Hardware

If you’re not planning to renovate your kitchen or buy new appliances, you can replace old knobs and pulls to make your kitchen more appealing.


Forget Storage

You need a lot of storage space in your kitchen. Maximise every space in your kitchen. You can add plate racks, cabinets, pull-out pantries, open shelves, or drawers.

Clutter the Counters

A well-designed kitchen looks neat. Cluttering your kitchen counters with an oven toaster or microwave decreases the visual appeal of your kitchen. Besides, cooking with a messy counter is frustrating!

You can keep those items on accessible shelves or cabinets instead.

Overdo Design Trends

Popular trends are stunning and appealing if executed correctly. However, being a blind follower of trends is never a good idea because sooner or later, they will be out of style. Instead, choose the style preference that will keep you happy for a long time while putting on some trendy accents.

Decorating Your Bathroom


Keep it Neutral

When it comes to designing a bathroom, it’s best to keep it neutral because popular trends will make your bathroom look outdated in the long run. While neutral colours and designs, you can easily add more style or personality to your bathroom.

Consider Getting High-End Lightning

An energy-efficient home increases your property’s value. Invest in LED lighting to save energy and increase the beauty of your bathroom. LED lights are easy to install and can be programmed to change colours!

Splurge on the Shower

You can use your shower as a design element or focal point. Most homeowners are investing in heated shower floors and multiple showerheads that gives your bathroom a more luxurious look.


Forget Ventilation

Your bathroom is prone to moisture and if there’s no ventilation, your bathroom can be a breeding ground for mildew and mould. Investing in a strong ventilation fan is already enough. You can also install windows to improve the airflow and increase the natural light in your bathroom.

Skimp on the Vanity

An impressive vanity makes a big statement. You can get double sinks, large mirrors, and additional storage.


Kitchen and bathroom renovations need to be planned out carefully for the project to be carried out smoothly. If you’re unsure of how to start, it’s best to consult an expert to help you out. Here at Mitcham Tiling, we are equipped with skills and tools to help you bring your vision to life.
