1. Decide on a Budget
The first step you should take when you’re planning bathroom renovation is to decide on your desired budget. There’s no point coming up with an opulent bathroom design with all the bells and whistles only to be shown a price tag you can’t afford. To avoid any unnecessary disappointment and heartbreak, decide on a suitable budget and work your way back from there. If you’re unsure how to come up with a suitable budget for your basic bathroom renovation, contact A Plan Kitchens to speak to a friendly member of our team about your bathroom renovation plan.
2. Find the Right Contractor
The next step in planning a bathroom renovation is to find the right contractor who can turn your bathroom renovation dream into a reality. Bathrooms are complex structures, requiring the cooperation of builders, plumbers, electricians and even cabinet makers. Thus, it’s important that your contractor understands the intricacies of renovating bathrooms. The seasoned veterans at A Plan Kitchens have a wealth of knowledge and experience renovating bathrooms and kitchens, and we can help you with your bathroom renovation plan.
3. Choose Materials Carefully
When you’re renovating your bathroom, there’s a general expectation that the renovation will last a long time before it needs to be revamped again. As a result, it’s important to ensure that the materials that you use are durable and strong, so that they don’t degrade with use. In addition, choosing sustainable materials and appliances such as shower heads ensures minimal electricity and water usage, minimising environmental impact and saving you money on bills.
4. Apply for Council Approval
It’s not always necessary to apply for council approval for a bathroom renovation. However, if you’re changing the plumbing system during your renovation you will need approval. In addition, if you’re removing a wall or separating the bathroom from adjoining rooms, you also may need to apply for council approval before you commence work. If you’re unsure whether you need council approval for your planned renovation, speak to a member of our team today.
5. Invest in Good Lighting
Good lighting is essential for any bathroom renovation plan. Make sure you invest in high quality lighting fixtures to provide your bathroom with sufficient illumination. The vanity and sink in the bathroom are typically the areas that require the most lighting as this is where the most time is spent looking in the mirror. A lightbar or an LED fixture is usually sufficient in this case.
