Autumn is a wonderful time of the year to renovate your bathroom. It is clear that a bathroom is one of the most used rooms in a home. A renovation can be a quite challenging process, especially if you don’t know where to start. Home designs point few things to consider when you plan to renovate your bathroom.
Don’t you know if the bathroom needs a refreshment or a renovation? Ask yourself a few questions. Did your needs change? Did your taste and style change? Maybe you need more storage space? Or you don’t want those white wall tiles anymore? Well, it’s perfect time to give your bathroom a new life.
Deciding how much money you are willing to spend due to renovation is the first step you have to do. The investment includes the cost of materials and finishes, lightening, fixtures and fittings, and of course the cost of labour – painting, tilling and plumbing. Depending on the bathroom’s size and the material’s quality, a bathroom renovation can cost between $3.000-$20.000. You can decide to paint on your own, but don’t forget to leave the critical job to the professionals.
Next, design a new floor plan by measuring the floor’s dimensions and marking the positions of existing doors, windows and remaining fixtures. You are going to need more money and time if you plan to change the bathroom layout. It is clear this includes adding or removing walls or setting up a spa/sauna. Additional cost will come from repositioning the plumbing or electricity too.
