In order to get the best bespoke bathroom for your home, you should thoughtfully consider your practical needs as well as your aesthetic desires. If you need a bespoke bathroom because you or a member of your household has a disability or accessibility issues, your considerations may be very different than someone who simply wants a unique, beautiful bathroom that makes use of high-tech toilets, showers, and other fixtures. Other considerations include the state of the plumbing in your home and its compatibility with the type of bathroom that you want. Typically, it is a good idea to hire a quality contractor and interior designer in order to get optimal results. In some cases, you may also wish to hire an experienced plumber to assist you in planning your new bathroom.

Although many people may not pay much attention to their bathroom, thinking of it primarily as a functional room, other people are concerned about both the aesthetics and the usability of this space. For individuals who have mobility issues, a poorly designed bathroom can make it very difficult to perform basic hygiene functions. You may also wish to transform your bathroom into a spa-like atmosphere with special bathtubs and showers that can offer relaxing and therapeutic bathing.

If your primary interest in a bespoke bathroom is aesthetic, you should begin looking through interior design magazines and noting color schemes and styles that you like. You may want to cut these out or copy them from the magazines so that you can show a contractor or interior designer the look or looks that appeal to you. You should also begin the hunt for a good contractor, preferably someone with experience in building a custom bathroom. In many jurisdictions, contractors and remodelers are licensed. If you live in such an area, contact the licensing board to verify whether a contractor is licensed and to find out if the contractor has been the subject of any disciplinary action in the past.

In situations where your bespoke bathroom must be designed to accommodate someone with mobility issues, you may wish to hire an interior designer or architect who has training in accessible or universal design. It may be wise to ask this professional to meet with those members of your family who have accessibility needs so that the professional can assist your contractor in building a bespoke bathroom that meets the needs of your family member while also complementing your home's appearance.
