Still Not Convinced?
Here are the steps that you can follow for a usual bathroom renovation:
Make a Rough Plan for Your Renovation Project: To start off your renovation project, you have to plan out what features and fixtures you need to add/replace in your bathroom. In other words, this is the part where you have to decide what exactly you need to renovate.
Think About Your Total Budget: Once you are done creating a renovation plan, you have to think about what your total budget is. Understanding and setting a budget beforehand will let you make the right choices when purchasing fixtures, paints, etc.
Acquire the Necessary Permits: Depending on the location of your home, you may need certain permits before you can renovate your bathroom. If you’re living in an apartment building, then you will need the consent and approval of the management board as well.
Prep Your Bathroom for the Renovation: To renovate your bathroom, you have to first gut it. Depending on the type of renovation you’re going to do, the ‘gutting’ process could range from the simple removal of a few fixtures or it could entail the complete demolition of the bathroom.
Here are some things that you should take care of before gutting your bathroom:
Ensure that the water supply to the bathroom is turned off
Ensure that there is none of the belonging or any other useful items in the bathroom
Ensure that you wear the right protective equipment during the gutting. This equipment can include masks, gloves, gumboots, etc.
Ensure that you don’t damage any of the fixtures or items that you want to reuse.
Install the New Flooring/Fixtures: After gutting your bathroom, you have to move on to installing the fixtures/flooring. If you want to install fixtures such as a new tub or sink, be sure to check that the piping is not leaking or broken. On the other hand, if you are going to install some new flooring, you will need to properly prepare the sub-floor.
Paint and Finish: And once you are done installing the flooring and/or fixtures, you can paint your bathroom with the colour of your choice. If there are any wooden or other ‘polishable’ surfaces/products in there, you can give it a good finish to make it look nice and new.
A Few Bathroom Renovation Tips and Tricks
Make some space for greenery. Adding a few plants to your bathroom can help in improving the overall look. It can also help in making your time inside the bathroom relaxing and pleasant.
Be careful about the flooring. When it comes to bathrooms, you want to install some waterproof flooring in there. Wooden floors are definitely not a good idea.
Pick a good colour. Having the right colour in your bathroom can change the way it looks. A dark murky brown (yuck) colour can make your bathroom look cramped and scary. Go for something light, like white or pearly pink, etc.
Be generous with the lights. In a bathroom, you can never have enough lights. Consider putting lights on top of the vanity, somewhere around cabinets, in the recesses, and just about anywhere where they can serve a purpose.
Make niches and shelves in the walls. Much better than bulging and protruding cabinets are recessed shelves and niches in the walls. They can give you some good storage space while also staying discreet.
Renovating a bathroom all on your own can be fun, but it can be difficult as well. Start your project on Aireno and we will help you make your renovation project smooth and streamlined.
