Renovating your bathroom can be a very exciting task. But before you take the plunge and start the reno, there are some less exciting things to consider so your project turns out just the way you dream it. However, before you enlist professional help, it’s important to know the basics of what goes into a bathroom renovation project. At Package Deal Bathrooms, we know that renovating a bathroom can be overwhelming, costly and time-consuming and have prepared a list of simple steps to make sure your project stays on track and the renovation runs smoothly with least disruptions.
- SET A REALISTIC BATHROOM RENOVATION BUDGET
Bathroom renovation projects can be costly and how much you decide to spend on your bathroom renovation ultimately depends on your personal tastes and budget. Take a realistic approach about what you can afford and set your budget. We highly recommend investing in high-quality materials and high-quality workmanship. Highly utilised areas like the faucet, sink, toilet need to be the best quality and skimping in these items is not a good idea as you want these things to hold up. Cheapest isn’t always best. If you are trying to do your bathroom renovation Adelaide on a budget, consider renovating just a couple of elements, like you can keep the floor but change out the sink to meet your budget. Always account for unexpected repairs in any remodelling or renovation project. It’s a good idea to budget for 10 to 20 percent more money than you need for unforeseen problems that may be uncovered when work starts.
- CHOOSE THE BEST ADELAIDE BATHROOM RENOVATION TEAM
The key to any successful bathroom renovation is hiring the right team or contractor. You want to look for a team of expert Adelaide bathroom designers with years of experience. Be sure to find a committed, licensed, insured business that follows a design-build approach and can work within your budget and timeframe, while maintaining quality and exceeding expectations. It is important for the renovating firm to be enthusiastic about your space and your ideas.
- WORK ON THE RENOVATION SCOPE AND KNOW THE TIMELINE
The big question on all homeowners’ mind is “how long does it take to renovate a bathroom?” The scope of your bathroom renovation will determine the timeline. There’s more than meets the eye when planning a bathroom. To ascertain the time needed to complete the reno project, discuss all ideas and possibilities with the professional contractor you’ve chosen to do the refurbishment work. A simple bathroom design refresh will take less time, while a full bathroom renovation or remodel can take several weeks. Your Adelaide bathroom contractor will be able to tell you the sequence of all the jobs which need to be done to complete your dream bathroom in time.
- BATHROOM REMODELING TIPS TO CONSIDER
Be prepared for the inconvenience: When you start a bathroom renovation project, you won’t be able to use all or some features of your bathroom for a significant period of time. Be patient and find an alternative bathroom or use other bathrooms in the house.
Prevent water damage: We cannot stress more on the importance of waterproofing. To prevent structural damage and mold problems in the future, make sure the contractor completely seals and waterproofs the tiles and drywall, seals the floors, tubs, shower and fixtures.
Focus on what’s important and make it timeless: Features that you will sue every day such as cabinets, sink, taps, shower head and toilet — consider spending more to get high-quality items. Look for good bargains, if possible, on decorative items that you can easily replace, such as cabinetry knobs, drawer pulls or lighting. Your material choices and mainstream design can be modern and cutting-edge but it’s important to keep it timeless for home’s resale value.
