Planning Your Renovation

Step 1 – Plan

This may be one of the biggest projects that you undertake in your home. It is important that you think about the following questions to help get your project underway;

   layouts bathroom

Why do you want to renovate?
Are you looking for more space? tired with your existing floor plan? Do you want modern fixtures and accessories? Do you just want a bathroom face lift? Does your bathroom leak or is it just falling apart?

Who uses the bathroom?
(Males, females, kids, adults, teens, elderly, infants etc) this information is useful when listing your requirements eg: storage, themes & accessories

Do they have special requirements?
Consider the needs of others that will use the room. eg: having a shower over a bath tub may save space in a small room but how does an elderly relative or family member get in and out? Do your wife and or teenage daughter need extra storage room for make-up and other personal items?

Is this your only bathroom facility?
If so, should you go on holidays while the renovation is taking place? What alternative arrangements can we make? Do you need to hire a port-a-loo or portable bathroom? A quality renovation takes 3-4 weeks to complete on average and the toilet is the first thing removed and the last thing installed.

What is your financial picture?
Do you have savings set aside for the work? Do you need a bank loan? How much can you afford to spend? What does a new bathroom cost anyway? Bathrooms are the most expensive rooms in your home to renovate. Apart from the kitchen, it is the only room that has permanent fixtures and fittings and requires five different licensed and specialist trades to put it together.

1. Plumber
2. Electrician
3. Carpenter
4. Waterproofer
5. Wall & Floor Tiler

A reputable renovator will not want to cut corners to save money, nor want to give you only half a job because that's all you can afford. After all, he has to put his name to (Guarantee) the work for seven years. A realistic budget is required to achieve the best results.
Step 2 - Gather Information
  • Visit some retail showrooms to get a feeling for overall concepts to establish colour themes and styles. At this stage, it is not necessary to focus on individual items until your builder has given you the relevant sizes and specifications
  • Collect pictures from bathroom magazines, notes and articles on styles and projects that interest you and your tastes
  • Compile a “wish list” with all the things that you would like to have in the bathroom
Step 3 - Prepare Yourself For A Design Consultation
Have you established your needs and wants? Examples:
do you have special requirements such as storage, lighting, etc?
Do you need to maximise space ?
Do you want or need a different layout ?
Have you thought about details ie: tile heights, relocation of walls, windows, ceilings etc?
Have you worked out a realistic budget and time frame for the project?
Have you collected magazine cutouts to give us an idea of what you like?
Have you visited showrooms for bathroom themes?
Have you researched the internet?
Have you completed
If you answered yes to most of the above questions... you are now ready for step 4.
