Bathroom Renovations - Where to Start?

Often the thought of taking on a renovation to your bathroom can be a little overwhelming. You may have an idea in your head about what you want it to look like, the general colours you think will accomplish your goals for this room and perhaps a change in the layout of the room. Many people are daunted by the thought of entrusting the task to tradesmen and you might find that you would like to do the renovation yourself. Wherever you start out and no matter what your goals are for your bathroom renovation, there are a few things that will get you started on your wonderful journey of transforming your bathroom.

  1. You really should consult a professional in the industry. Look on the web at locals in your area and look at their portfolio. If they don't have many completed jobs or the jobs they have completed don't seem up to your standards, walk away immediately. You need to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the job is going to be done properly as you are probably going to live with the consequences for a while. Look at our portfolio page, this will give you a good standard to hold other professionals against.
  2. Look through images on the internet of other bathroom renovations, and go looking at bathroom supply and tiling outlets and start imagining what you want your new bathroom to look like. Look through our extensive bathroom portfolio and ask Jai to come out and give you a quote. He has done so many bathroom renovations and has wonderful creativity, he may just give you an idea that makes all the difference.
  3. If you are planning on doing the renovation yourself to cut costs, ask questions. And then ask some more. Get quotes off professionals and have them on hand in case you change your mind. Get advice from people in the industry who do this stuff for a living. They will probably know a touch more than your mate who means well.

Above all, remember to enjoy it. Renovations are hard work, but they should be enjoyable knowing that hard work and perseverance pays off well. If you have great people to deal with through the process who take care of most of troubles for you, put your feet up and have a cuppa!
