A Few Things To Consider When Renovating Your Bathroom

Sunday, September 01, 2013

Renovating your bathroom can be a very interesting task. But before throwing or buying pieces, there are several things that should be taken into account in order to have the project of our dreams. Because a bathroom renovation can be overwhelming and it can take time and money, here’ s a list you should go through.


If you did not know that already, you should first think about how much you are willing to spend for the renovation. Setting a budget will help you make important decisions in what follows. Once you have determined how much you can spend, then you can have a clearer idea about working hours, tiles and other accessories.


Many people think that to renovate a small bathroom takes only a few days, much less than it would take to renovate a bigger bathroom. That is not necessarily the rule. Depending on how many things change in the bathroom, this will determine the working time. However, planning doesn’t t just refer to the duration of the renovation, but also, to some interim steps, such as ordering and purchasing tiles, for those who want something custom made, and delivery. Timing is also crucial for those with a single bathroom in the house, because they will have to talk to someone in order to take a shower. Also, you have to give your neighbors an estimated time frame, because things will get noisy.

Style, design and functionality

The first step is to think how you want your bathroom to look like. There are many factors that you have to take into consideration such as paint color, choosing tiles, shower, bath, taps etc. The search itself can become overwhelming, so it’s a good idea to start online. You can browse more items and then try to put them together, or you can choose a strong element and build all the other items around it.

Design should be hand in hand with functionality, so consider the people who are going to use it or the possibility of selling the house over some time.

Sanitary equipment and accessories

No restoration is complete without repairing or changing the sanitary equipment such as shower, bathtub, toilet, bidet, sink, taps and shower. For example, a great online shop to start looking for sanitary equipment is Bidet King. You should also take into consideration reconditioning or replacing bathroom mirrors. You can give a fresh and pleasant new look by changing door handles.


There are 3 important things to consider when it comes to dimensions that need to be calculated in a bathroom: locating of water ducts, electrical wiring and standard size items of sanitary equipment. Therefore, make sure that you have accurate measurements and specifications when you go to the store. It can be very frustrating to going shopping without accurate measurements or buy things that do not fit the size or specification.

The handyman

Hiring a craftsman for this operation would be a smart thing, considering the complexity of the work [electrical, plumbing etc.] and there are many specialists on the market ready to start working. Therefore, it’s best to benefit from the advantages offered by hiring an authorized person to work in your home. This way you will receive professional advice and the worker can guarantee for the job.
