Bathroom renovation is a challenging task, especially if you are doing it yourself. If you want to get the best renovation results, hiring a bathroom renovations Sutherland Shire service might be a good idea. If you are planning to DIY bathroom renovation, here are is a step-by-step guide to renovating your bath:
Create a Realistic Budget
To begin with bathroom renovations in Sutherland Shire, you need to create a realistic budget. Make a list of new fittings, fixtures, and surfaces. The easiest way to establish a budget for bathroom renovation is to hire a professional renovator. They will design the new bathroom according to your budget, the size, and the scope of your bathroom. If you are making a budget by yourself, add up all the costs, and then add on an extra 10 to 20 percent extra.
Clearing out your bathroom can be an extremely dirty, dusty, noisy job. If you decide to do this yourself, be sure to wear work gloves, hearing protection, eye goggles, and a dust mask. First, remove the old vanity and sink, disconnect the toilet, and strip off the wall tiles. Be careful with plumbing pipes, electrical cables, or metal ducts.
Your bathroom floors, walls, and showers are continuously exposed to hot, soapy water and intense steam. Choose your surface accordingly based on bathroom condition. Porcelain tile is the best material for any bath floor. You can also go for granite, marble, Corian, or Staron. All are extremely durable and anti-slippery.
Address Storage Needs
Storage is important if your bathroom is being shared by two or more people. Get a closet that will provide space for your towels, toilet paper, bath mats, makeup, cleaning supplies, and medications. You can install wall-mounted shelves to save space.
Improve the Lighting
Proper lighting will make your bathroom attractive, warm, and welcoming. Your bath should have two types of lighting -ambient and task. Ambient lighting provides overall illumination, while task lighting delivers illumination for specific tasks, such as shaving, applying makeup, and personal grooming.
Upgrade the Ventilation System
Install a ceiling-mounted vent fan to exhaust steam, hot air, and unpleasant odours. Proper ventilation prevents condensation, helps towels to dry faster, and prevents the growth of mould and mildew.
No matter what’s the size or style of your bathroom, these steps will ensure that the bathroom renovation goes smoothly and you get a new, beautiful bathroom.
