5 Expert Tips for Pulling Off the Ultimate Bathroom Renovation
Renovating the Bathroom in your home is an exciting time! Yes, it can be expensive and there’s a lot of work which has to go into it, but the end result is always worth it. Well, provided that you do it properly that is. In this post we’re going to give you some quick and easy expert tips on how to get the most out of the experience and pull off the ultimate bathroom renovation!
1 – Do Your Research
This means doing more than simply picking a few nice colours out of a catalogue. The internet is a vast and seemingly endless resource, so you should take full advantage of it before getting started with your renovation! Take your time and try to gather as many different ideas as you can. There’s nothing worse than spending months renovating your bathroom, and then a week after completion discovering a design which could have been cheaper, easier and looks far nicer than the one that you settled with. Take your time, you’ll thank yourself in the long-run!
2 – Make a Wish List
Think about all of the things that you’ve always wanted and then consider the things that you can live without. Is this a family bathroom or an en-suite? If you think about who is going to be using the bathroom the most, it will make it much easier when it comes to your creating your wish list. Set a priority level for different items (toilet being high, wi-fi mirror being low)
3 – Budget Smart
It is important that you try to be as realistic as possible when it comes to budgeting, but that’s not to say that you can’t splash out if you really value having a beautiful bathroom. The important thing is to not cripple yourself and spend your life savings, while making sure that you afford yourself at least a few luxuries. Also, be sure to set a side an additional fund for unforeseen expenses which will invariably arise during the renovation process.
And while you may not be able to afford marble, there are cheaper alternatives which adopt the marble aesthetic. Just shop smart and prioritise your spending.
4 – Be Bold!
At the end of the day, this is your bathroom renovation, so be as brave and bold as you like. If you’re happy, then that’s what is important. Experiment with different ideas and materials and go as lavish and luxurious as your heart’s desire.
5 – Don’t be Afraid to Show Off
After all, what’s the point in working so hard if no one is going to see it? Invite friends over for dinner and insist that they use the bathroom and upload your pictures to your social media. But the most important thing of all is that you spend plenty of time to yourself, relaxing and enjoying the fruits of your labour!
