How to Prepare for a Bathroom Makeover

bathroom renovation
A bathroom makeover is an extremely exciting time for your household.

However, along with the fun of picking out a new design, there can also be feelings of nervousness and stress, especially if you are not adequately prepared.

A good way to handle this is to ensure you have properly planned for your renovations.

Having everything in order and ready to go, will mean that everything goes smoothly when the decorating begins. In addition, you will feel confident in your decisions.

If you’re currently planning a big bathroom makeover, and aren’t sure where to start or what steps to take, we have you covered.  Read on for some helpful advice on what to do in the lead up to the new look:

Think about your room

Before you start buying paint or picking out features, have a brainstorm.

It is crucial to think about the layout of your bathroom, and what you are going to do with the space available.

Consider where the pipes in the room are. Hiring a plumber to have them moved can be a considerably expensive job.

Think about where you’d like your furniture to go. Getting a good visual image in your head of how you’d like the final room to look will give you direction and goals when purchasing renovation materials.

An example of this, is when installing cladding, you should be aware of the thickness of the plastic wall panels and how this will impact your space. This will mean that you don’t make any mistakes further down the line, that could be expensive to fix.

Visit a showroom

Whether you are low on ideas and have no starting point, it is always a good idea to visit a showroom.

This will mean you can get some inspiration for your home, and see how designs look.

Showrooms are a great way to get ideas for your colour scheme, layout or features. It is even an opportunity to pick up some samples of the different types of cladding or waterproof bathroom flooring on offer to you.

Get measurements

One of the most important things you can do when preparing for a bathroom renovation is to ensure you have the right measurements from the start.

Doing this will mean that you can fit everything in properly the first time! There’s nothing more heart-breaking – and awkward – than having to return your dream bathtub because it doesn’t fit in the room!

Ensure you measure the room thoroughly, and then check your measurements again to guarantee everything will come together perfectly.

Get the right tools

When we talk about tools, we are not just talking about a hammer and a drill here.

For a functioning bathroom, you need to ensure that you have the standard bathroom features like a bath, shower and basin.

However, for a bathroom that you can be proud of and truly relax in, you should ensure that you have a few important extras.

For example, having the right amount of cladding and plastic shower panels to cover your bathroom will help to keep heat in, look stylish, and prevent undesirable damp and mould from destroying the aesthetic you have worked hard to achieve.

If you keep these tips in mind when beginning your bathroom renovation, it should keep the process simple, and ensure that everything goes to plan.
