Bathroom renovations are an exciting prospect for your home but can also seem like a daunting task that is time consuming, costly and sometimes, a little overwhelming. To take the pressure off and to get you on the right track ahead of planning your new bathroom design and selecting your new accessories to finish it off, we are offering some tips to consider that will help you create the bathroom you’ve always dreamed of.
- A Realistic Vision
Assess your space and decide why you are renovating. Upgrading your bathroom can add significant value to your home or investment property, therefore ensure you do it right. Consider your budget, the amount of time you want to spend on your renovation, research to see if there are any hidden problems and bring in a reputable contractor to do your measurements, assess functionality and install the plumbing.
- Keep it simple
Renovating the entire design of your bathroom can prove cumbersome as plumbing and piping, lighting, ventilation and a bunch of other necessities need to be considered. Before ripping everything out entirely – keep it simple by adding new bathroom accessories; upgrading your finishes and/or applying a fresh coat of paint. These small adjustments can dramatically change and upgrade the look and feel of your space with minimal effort and budget.
- Finishing touches
Adding new and modern accessories to any bathroom will create the finished touch that will make a bathroom feel homely and comforting. When choosing your accessories you need to define your style and consider your colour scheme and the space you are working with. New colour finishes such as Matt Black or Brushed Bronze are especially popular because of their trend appeal, they work well with contemporary bathroom styles and add a touch of sophistication to your bathroom for visually interesting elements in this space.
- Upgrade your style
While upgrading your bathroom, consider upgrading your style too by incorporating interesting and new elements into your space such as adding a ladder rail that serves as a beautiful towel storage – giving your bathroom a functional purpose. As a focal point of the bathroom, our ladder rails have the style, simplicity and classic lines of a towel ladder twice the price.
- Ventilation. Ventilation. Ventilation
Bathrooms generate a lot of moisture which is a breeding ground for mould and mildew – be prepared for this and don’t allow it to ruin any renovations you’ve already done or plan to do. Be sure to have a minimum of one window, a built-in fan or fitted air vents installed.
While upgrading your bathroom might be one of the toughest renovations you will do in your home, it is also possibly the most rewarding one, so have fun with it and remember to make it your own.
