Remodelling your bathroom can be a big and challenging task. We have gathered our best tips for home bathroom remodelling, so you can get the best out of your renovation process and finish with a bathroom you love!
Tip 1: Create a budget, and then stick to it!
Any kind of home renovation can be costly, so it’s important that you work out how much you are willing to spend on your bathroom before you rip anything out of the wall. Decide what you want to change about your bathroom and work out if there is anything you can keep and reuse to drive the total cost down: these can be big things such as the mirrors or basins, or even little things like the shower head. Then work out what you do want to spend money on and make a plan.
Tip 2: Make a plan and get the professionals on board early.
If you plan on moving plumbing fixtures, design your ideal layout and then check with a professional to see if it is feasible and cost-effective. They might be able to save you money with a slightly different layout that is logistically easier.
Tip 3: Ventilation is important
Make sure your bathroom plan has sufficient ventilation, as this will prevent mould growing and causing costly problems in the future.
Tip 4: Think carefully about your materials
Bathrooms endure a lot of wear and tear through daily use, so it’s important to choose durable materials that will last many years. Avoid fittings that are made of cheap flimsy plastic, investing in good quality brass is worth the cost. Choose good quality non-porous tiles, waterproof paint and solid cabinets that won’t swell and crack in the humid environment of a bathroom.
Tip 5: Lighting can make the space
People spend time making sure they look presentable in the bathroom mirrors, so make sure the lighting in your bathroom allows for people to see themselves clearly while standing at the sink. An affordable option is to add some softer lights to the walls near the mirrors to achieve this.
Tip 6: Don’t skimp on storage
Having a neat and tidy bathroom makes for a more pleasant space, especially as it is often the smallest room in your house and clutter can make it feel crammed. You can add storage under your basins, by attaching an extra cabinet to the wall, or simply by adding more hooks.
