Many people assume that if they are remodelling a small bathroom it will only take a few days, or anyway it will take much less time than a larger one. This is not necessarily the case. Depending on how many items you are changing in the bathroom your contractor will have to go through all the same steps as a larger bathroom. However, planning refers not only to defining the duration of the renovation works but also certain intermediate steps such as ordering and purchasing tiles, fixtures, custom-built vanity or cabinets to make sure they can be delivered when your contractor needs them. Planning time is also crucial for those with only one bathroom in their house as they will have to make arrangements where to take a shower and use the toilet while the bathroom is taken apart.
An upscale remodel includes expanding the room an additional 8 square feet into existing space, adding a window, moving fixtures such as the toilet and replacing them with high-end models, a 4-X-6-foot tiled shower with a shower wall, a bidet, stone counter tops in the vanity with two sinks, linen closet, tile floor, lighting, an exhaust fan and other amenities.
A bathroom is a room of personal hygiene. It is a room where individuals create visual character. Construction of a bathroom is based around millimetre perfect design techniques with the scope to move freely within your bathroom. Visual effects, colour and layout are important considerations along with colour and practicality. 27 years in the building industry has enabled our team to be diligent expert craftsmen.
A small budget means there is always a temptation to do some or all of the work yourself to save money, but a DIY bathroom renovation can easily backfire. According to research from Gumtree Australia, 75% of Australian homeowners have commenced DIY projects, with one in five ending poorly. DIY is a HUGE risk. Did you know that Dream Bathroom’s all-inclusive bathroom renovations packages cost about the same as a DIY project so why would you take the risk? Well, here are six big reasons to not DIY:
When you’re ready to start the renovation process, it is important to consider popular trends as well as your own family’s needs. First of all, you should consider how best to use the space you have. Think about what your family needs most, and then determine if that pedestal bathtub or larger vanity is worth the investment. Next, find ways to add more bathroom storage. Adding more cabinets and shelves to such a small space can be tricky, but it is often crucial for storing towels and beauty supplies. Finally, think about the overall feel of the space. With a creative use of materials, even a bathroom can have decorative elements.
