Renovating your bathroom is a very exciting and interesting task and should be thoroughly planned out. Renovating your bathroom can be overwhelming, Classic Quarters Group has prepared a a few simple points for you to consider when undertaking your bathroom renovation.
First think about how much you are willing to spend on the renovation. Setting a budget will help you make important decisions such as whether or not not to move the services and what quality level of materials to buy. Once you have determined the amount you want to spend, you can get a clearer idea on bathroom furniture, tiles and other accessories.
People tend to think that renovating a small bathroom takes much less than it would take if renovating a larger bathroom, but this is not necessarily true. For example, a bathroom renovation specialist will have to go through the same processes whether you were installing a large bathtub or a small one. Classic Quarters Group is a Sydney bathroom renovation specialist that can take care of everything in a very reasonable timeframe.
If you have decided to go for a major update of your bathroom, the whole plumbing layout should be reviewed. This will give more value to your home over time because your house’s age is generally the main cause of hidden problems such as broken water pipes or electrical wiring issues. It saves time and money in the medium to long term, not to mention less headaches and issues!
There are three important things to consider – locating pipes, electrical wiring and size of standard bathroom accessories, such as bathtub, mirror, cabinets, faucets etc. This is one of the reasons you should choose a professional bathroom renovation company. This way you can avoid a lot of mistakes which result in wasted time and money. We can advise you on how to use the space to ensure we can include as much or as little as you want in your bathroom. There are lots of space-saving ideas in bathrooms such as built in shelves in the shower for toiletries, hidden cisterns, and vanities with good storage (that of course look great!).
A bathroom can be impractical or even dangerous without proper lighting. Firstly we want to work with the natural light and then consider adding to the light levels where needed. As a general rule of thumb, the bathroom should have at least 4 watts of incandescent light per square meter.
Ventilation is essential in a small, wet room such as the bathroom. It is also a difficult task that requires good upfront planning. Poor ventilation can lead to excessive moisture in the bathroom leading to rotting timbers or unhealthy mould. We can discuss options that will best suit your use of space.
