Invaluable Bathroom Tips
There are many things to think about when renovating and at Bathroom Depot we have heaps of tips and ideas to help you from start to finish. Here are a few to consider; organizing a plan and a budget, trades people, products and doing all the checks in regards to council regulations. It doesn't have to be difficult and when you have some simple tips you'll also have fun!
Pipes & fixtures
It's important to consider every aspect that you may encounter when renovating your bathroom to help avoid any unexpected surprises. For example, if you keep your bathroom fixtures/plumbing in the same position, this will help keep the costs down. It will mean not having to make any major changes to floors, walls or ceilings. By checking the position of all the pipes and fixtures, you can determine whether you are able to move things around without too much of an impact on your budget.
Although the above is the most cost effective way to renovate, we appreciate that sometimes having to rearrange the way your bathroom is set up is the reason for starting the renovation. If this is the case, you need to consider the access you may or may not have in your ceiling, walls and floor as this may profoundly contribute to your bathroom costs.
Preplanning your colour scheme is extremely important, as it ensures you will be happy with the end result. This will save you having to make any unexpected changes halfway through the job. Neutral colours are safe and suitable for most homes and create a bright & spacious effect. If however, you are more adventurous a combination of brighter and darker shades can be used to create a modern and contrasting effect. It's important that the colour scheme you choose will enhance the style and mood you want to reflect.
When selecting products it's necessary that you make sure you are getting value for your money. On average these products will be used for the next 8 to 10 years or more and itís for this reason that we strongly advise you to compare products to ensure they not only look good, but that they also come with suitable manufacturers' warranties.
