As that one place in the house where you are able to get a moment of peace for yourself, the bathroom is also one of the most popular places in the house. As a result, it can be subjected to more wear and tear than other rooms, so may need to be renovated more regularly to give it a lift. For many of us, working to a budget is a part of the process of doing any renovation, which requires us to follow some guidelines to ensure that we get the best job done that we possibly can, for the best value possible. Here are some tips to assist with making the process smooth and hassle-free.
If you are working on a budget, it is best to steer away from big plumbing modifications which will require you to cut into walls and flooring to move pipes around. The major expense involved with big plumbing modifications is not as much to do with the plumbing, but more to do with needing to retile the bathroom and redo walls. This does not mean that you cannot renovate your bathroom, but just that baths, showers, toilets, sinks etc, will need to remain in the same position as they were before.
When hiring a contractor/s to do the job for you, make sure that you do your homework, as getting the wrong person could really blow your budget if you end up needing to pay for their mistakes. Some contractors claim to be a jack of all trades - offering plumbing, electrical and plastering work all done by them, but this could leave you with a job that is not done properly, and you may not even find the mistakes until they are long gone with your money in their pocket. So save yourself undue stress and worry, by allocating the plumbing work to a professional Noosa plumber, and the plastering to a professional plasterer, and so forth.
Neutral Décor – Colourful Accessories
When it comes to choosing the colour scheme in your bathroom, the best way is to choose neutral colours for the tiles, paint, vanity, toilet seat etc, and bring colour to the space with colourful towels and accessories. Choosing neutral colours doesn’t mean that you have to do it all in white - it can be pale blues, pinks and yellows, but leave the bright colours for the parts that you can change.
