10 smart bathroom renovation tips

When it comes to renovations it is important to set a budget and stick to it. It’s all too easy to blow out on selections from tiles to tapware. When you have a budget in place you can ensure you don’t over-value the space.

Here are the top 10 tips when it comes to smart bathroom renovations.

  1. Plan a layout and stick to it. This will help you make the most of your space and keep your entire project on track.
  2. Plan your plumbing and electrical needs early so you can make allowances – they should never be an after thought.
  3. Don’t forget about waterproofing.
  4. Where possible try to replace the toilet suite for the same style. This saves extra work when it comes to tiling and plumbing. In Australia there are two common styles – research which one suits your existing infrastructure and you will save a bunch of extra work when connecting it up.
  5. Mix and matching tiles can often save you a bundle and can create a very unique space. There are also many seconds stores where you can get high end tile ranges at a fraction of the cost grabbing line run-outs and bulk discount ranges.
  6. Big mirrors make small spaces feel more open
  7. Smart storage is priceless. Think about under vanity storage spaces or wall mount storage zones. Remember there are spaces you can take advantage of across the entire room.
  8. If you aren’t big on cleaning try to minimise grout lines –  big tiles make a statement, make the room feel bigger and reduce grout cleaning zones
  9. Plan for living – not for show. Every display home looks great but are not always ‘practical’ when it comes to actually using the space. Approach it in a smart way that embraces the best of both worlds.
  10. Less is more. It’s also timeless.
