Tips for a Smooth Bathroom Renovation

You might finally have the means to renovate your bathroom. Perhaps you've found up-to-date design inspiration that has motivated you to refresh the look of your bathroom. Maybe you wish to remodel your bathroom in a recently purchased home, or you want to update that old bathroom that needs improving? Either way, renovation is a highly complicated process.


But as time-consuming as it can be, an efficient and beautiful bathroom is a worthwhile home investment. If you haven't experience the process of a bathroom renovation, you're going to want to be prepared for the fundamentals of your new project.


Here are four of our top tips for undergoing a smooth bathroom renovation.

1. Create a Budget

Suppose you don't create a budget for how much of your money you're able and willing to spend on your bathroom renovation. In that case, you'll probably struggle with balancing your priorities and design along with the costs of labor and quality materials.


Renovation can get expensive very quickly, making it imperative to take a step back from the excitement and chaos and make a note of how much you want to invest in your new bathroom. Doing this will help with accurate quotes and a well-suited schedule of works.

2. Plan a Bathroom Layout

For your new space to be cohesive in design and function, you must develop a well-thought-out layout design before you begin your bathroom renovation. This plan helps create the perfect bathroom space ideal for you and the positioning of sanitaryware, decor, storage, and even tiling.

As it's a heavy-use room in the home, it only makes sense for you to want to enjoy your bathroom space — and an ideal layout will help you achieve this.

3. Plan a Lighting Scheme

A bathroom is your personal space and can be a place for you to unwind and relax when showering, bathing, shaving, grooming, and even applying makeup. Therefore, considering a lighting scheme when renovating your bathroom is a great way to create ambiance for these different uses.


Lighting can be essential in creating a beautifully functional bathroom that complements the design through task-oriented, accent, and decorative lights.


4. Selecting Your Sanitaryware

It's ideal to choose your toilet, sink, shower, and bath during the design stage and not at the point of installation to have a smooth bathroom renovation. Selecting these items ahead of time will avoid costly mistakes and save you and everyone involved in the project more time and money and make the renovation process much more straightforward.


Refreshing your bathroom is a fantastic opportunity to design a space that's better suited to you and your lifestyle. In reality, it doesn't necessarily have to be a complex process.


It's easy to become engrossed in the exciting design aspect of renovations, but it's also essential to consider the function of the space. Hopefully, these tips will help you decide how to start renovating your bathroom without a hitch.
