When it comes to bathroom remodelling it can be tough, especially if you haven’t had any experience in this area before. If you are looking to take on the job with no professional experience then it may be in your best interest to take some time to properly prepare, so Bathshop321 are on hand to share some helpful bathroom remodelling tips.
Be sure you have a good design
Taking the time to plan and design a bathroom that not only contains all of the modern features and luxuries that you were hoping for will ensure that you won’t fall short when it comes to the installation.
Don’t create problems for yourself by completely swapping the room around; if you have a bath tub, sink and toilet set in your bathroom and you planned to switch them around you would have to pay an enormous amount or take on a huge project yourself to rework the house plumbing.
When you are tearing our old bathroom fixtures and fittings it’s wise to gear up with adequate equipment. A thick pair of workman’s gloves, a dust mask, goggles and if necessary, a hardhat can help prevent and injury.
Be sure the room is nicely ventilated so excess dust in the air can leave the room easily; an open window or extraction fan can help can ensure the room is much clearer of dust and airborne dirt.
It may occur to you easily that the colours in the bathroom walls and features should match or contrast nicely, but people often forget that exposed plumbing should be included in this too. Be sure to match the colour of your exposed plumbing with that of the surrounding fixtures; if you have a bathtub, sink and toilet that area all white it’s fair to assume that your plumbing should be white too.
Use Reliable Contractors
If you come across a job that you need professional assistance with, be sure to source a certified, licenced contractor. There are far too many ‘handymen’ and ‘cash in hand’ contractors out there who leave people’s homes in an unsightly mess; don’t let this happen to you. Certified contractors can be found in your local directory.
Remember, if you are looking to take on a full bathroom remodelling job single-handedly, be sure to carry out extensive planning and preparation, you certainly won’t regret it!
