5 Things To Consider Before You Refurbish Your Bathroom

For many homeowners, there are a couple of rooms in the house that are more complex to refurb than the others. Aside from your kitchen, your bathroom probably requires the most thought and planning before you can go ahead and start to redecorate. 

When it comes to bathrooms, many are aiming for a space that is both functional and practical – but also chic and stylish. There are lots of decisions to be made along the way, from minor details such as which bath taps you should purchase, to bigger aspects such as; where the extractor fan should go. To help ensure you have thought of everything before you get started, Building Vision London have put together a list of things you should consider. 

 

Be sensible about your budget

 

Refurbishing a bathroom can cost a lot more than you may initially think, of course, it can be as expensive as you make it, but you must clearly outline your budget before work starts. There are certain elements that are more expensive than others and these are usually the necessities so, make sure you have the budget for these before you start accessorising. 

We would recommend that you always price everything up before you start too, so that you don’t run out of money halfway through the project. 

 

Ensure that your specific requirements are clear

 

It is almost impossible to complete a project of this size by yourself, unless you are incredibly experienced. We would always recommend that you work with an experienced team of bathroom fitters on your refurb, and you can even get some help with the design process too if you need it.

However, when working with a professional team you will need to ensure that your vision for the room is clear. Don’t just assume that everyone is on the same page as you, double-check everything and ensure that you are happy with all decisions before you go ahead. 

 

Good lighting requires planning

 

This part of a refurb is always overlooked, especially in bathrooms, even though it is more important here due to the lack of natural light. Don’t just think that you can install a few lights here and there and be done with it, lighting requires careful thought and placement.

Think specifically about where other aspects of your bathroom suite are going to be and where you require the light the most. For example, if you’re having a mirror above your sink then you will want this to be clearly lit, the same way you will want enough light to get in and out of the bath safely. 

 

 

Planning your perfect bathroom 

Ultimately, the planning for any bathroom project is one of the most essential parts. Take into account everything mentioned above and ensure that you have a detailed plan to follow before you start your refurb.
