The First Steps For A Bathroom Remodel

When you have decided to strip out your old bathroom and fit a new one in, you might immediately log on to Pinterest to find the tiles, flooring and suite that would look great in your home. However, there are some important steps to take before you can even start to think about enjoying your new washroom.

 

  • New layout?

The first thing to consider is if you want to change the layout of the existing bathroom, whether by knocking through a separate WC and bathroom, moving the sink or toilet, or altering where the shower goes.

If the current layout does not work for you, it is wise to think carefully how you can fix this, so you don’t have to remodel the bathroom again in the near future.

Moving plumbing and knocking down walls can add a substantial cost to your budget, so factor this in.

 

  • Design

After settling on a layout, you can have fun designing the bathroom with the help of a specialist. They can often show you how a virtual image of how the appliances will look in the space, so you can get an idea of what the final design will be.

 

  • Get rid of the old bathroom

Get rid of any fixtures and appliances you are not keeping, so the space is completely empty when the fitters arrive to install the suite.

Home Building recommends getting the flooring checked after it has been removed to see whether it is uneven and might need screeding before new tiles or laminate is laid down.

 

  • Fitting

The next stuff is to get all your new appliances, floor, tiles, cabinets, and plumbing fitted by the experts, starting with the wall tiles.
