How to start your bathroom renovation process.... 

There is a lot to consider when preparing for a new bathroom renovation. Not only does the space need to be functional, but it needs to be stylish and comfortable too, all within a set budget and completed within a set time frame. With so much to think about it’s no wonder it can be overwhelming to know where to begin, let alone how to get it right!

 

So we sat down with our design experts to understand their top tips to starting the bathroom renovation process….

Show us what you’ve got

The best place to start is understanding how much room you have to play with. Are you using your existing bathroom foot print, or combining the bathroom and separate toilet into one? Start by running a tape around the room, and note down where the existing door way is, any windows and don’t forget to include the height of the room. Starting with the size of the room is going to allow you to understand how much room you have to play with, the size you can allow for your vanity unit, how many square meters of tiles you will need and so on. So don’t do anything until you know what you have to play with.

Inspiration is key

Next up… get inspired! As soon as you see a bathroom space you like the look of capture it or save a picture. Whether it be a Pinterest board dedicated to your bathroom reno or an album on your phone as long as you are keeping record of what you like, you are on the right track. This album will go a long way when it comes to selecting colours and finishes as you will soon notice that you are drawn to the same styles over and over again. Even if you don’t notice it at first, look a little closer.

Who’s bathroom is it?

Understanding who will be using the new bathroom is very important in determining what fixtures and fittings will need to be included in your renovation. Will a double vanity need to be included in a parents retreat? Or maybe large format tiles to minimise grout and cut down on cleaning time. It’s not only important to answer who is using the bathroom but when? This will give insight into how the room is to be used and the ability to customise your bathroom design to your families specific needs. Your bathroom may be a rotating door in the morning as your family gets ready for their day, so two mirrors could be a great option for your bathroom. Or maybe you enjoy winding down of an evening and a luxurious freestanding bath is a must.

 

So take note and your batch designer can work with you to unlock your bathrooms potential based on your families unique needs. Call us today on 1300 833 883 to book in your FREE in home consultation today.
