The Lavatory List: How To Plan Out Your Bathroom Renovation

by Martha Simmonds

Planning a bathroom renovation? You’ve come to the right place. We know that renovating a bathroom can be intimidating. However, whether it be a commercial bathroom or a personal one in your home, it doesn’t have to be.

Whether you want to update your old bathtub with a new walk-in shower or add on some extra storage space for towels and toiletries, we have all the information you need to make the process smooth.

Our goal is to help you make informed decisions about what will work best for your home. With our step-by-step guide, we’ll take care of everything from picking out fixtures and materials to making sure everything fits in your budget. 

You deserve a beautiful space that reflects your style and personality. Let us show you how.

Consider the plumbing and electricity

The plumbing and electricity are two of the most critical aspects of your bathroom remodel, but they’re often overlooked until after the project has already started. 

This can lead to problems with water flow and drainage, which can cause damage or flooding. When installing new fixtures, be sure they are compatible with the existing pipes and drains. Enlist the services of a plumber before you start any planning or work.

Ensuring you have the correct wiring and electricity for all of your features (and safety) will mean hiring a licensed electrician who can help you with your electrical needs. For example, they will be able to make sure that everything is up-to-code and safe for use in your new bathroom.

Set a budget

It’s essential to know how much you can afford to spend on your new bathroom. You want it to be beautiful, but not too expensive. What will the cost of materials and labour be? How long will it take to complete the project? Will you need permits or inspections from the council? These are all things that should factor into your decision about what type of renovation is right for you.

Decide on your theme

Whether you like modern or traditional, rustic or elegant, there is something out there for everyone. You can choose from everything from traditional styles like Victorian and Colonial to modern looks like Industrial and Scandinavian.

Take the time to choose your theme early in the planning so you can choose your colours, materials and fixtures around these themes.

Make a list of everything you like and dislike

The first step in any successful project is to make a plan. Start by making a list of everything you need for the job, from materials and fixtures to paint colours and tile selections. It will help keep things organised so that you know exactly what you need when it comes time to buy supplies.

You want to make sure you have everything on hand and ready for when it comes time to start tearing down walls, laying tile, or installing fixtures. That way, there won’t be any surprises that will cost you more money in the long run.

Measure everything

Bathrooms can be the most personal space in a home and the most talked-about space in a public building. This leads us to want to add as many relaxing or eye-catching features as possible. But before you or your contractor start ripping out tiles or installing new fittings, make sure you know what size space you have available – otherwise, there may not be enough room for everything. 

Like the old saying goes, measure twice, cut once. The importance of measuring up the bathroom before renovating is to ensure that there will be enough space for all fixtures. If not, then it may result in a costly mistake. The same goes for commercial restrooms, accurate bathroom partition dimensions are extremely important when renovating these spaces.

Shop online to get the best fixtures for less

Source the materials online to save money. You can find everything you need for your next project, from tiles and fixtures to sinks and toilets.

It will save you money because there is no intermediary involved in the process. The products are cheaper than what home improvement stores charge for them, but they’re still high-quality products made by leading manufacturers.

We know that renovating your bathroom can be an overwhelming task, but we want to make it as easy and enjoyable for you as possible. Follow these steps, and you will have the perfect new space in no time.
