Have a Plan
Know what you want with your bathroom before you contact us – even if it’s just the basics, like if you want to replace to the shower with a bath, color schemes you like – and color schemes you hate!
We will work with you to help you to achieve whatever bathroom remodeling you desire, however it is going to save you time and money if, when you speak to us, you can tell us what you are aiming for.
Do you want to hire a designer?
Many online guides to home or bathroom remodeling will advise you to hire a designer. Whilst this is not bad advice in general, it’s not always as necessary as some guides will make out.
Rest assured, we will work closely with you to produce a range of designs that match not only your dreams for your bathroom, but also your budget.
That being said, we are also happy to work alongside any designer that you wish to appoint.
Understand bathroom sizes
This will help you to not only make your own designs, but to understand the designs that we (or your designer) presents.
Basically, most pieces of bathroom furniture such as the toilet, baths, shower cubicles etc all come in broadly standard sizes.
Get your hands on some hardware catalogues and take note of the dimensions of typical products. That way you will have a better understanding of how the space you have can be utilized.
Space Saving Designs
When you contact us we will walk through all the various options you have available to you during your bathroom remodeling.
It’s worth pointing out at this stage however that we have a wealth of experience of working in smaller bathrooms, and maximizing the available space. Many people assume that the space they have is simply not big enough for a worthwhile remodel – and we’re here to tell you that’s simply not correct!
Again, we will work closely with you to achieve your dream bathroom, but there are a number of simple techniques we can use – something as simple as employing a corner sink to maximize central floor space – that can be really effective.
A Concentrated Budget
The bathroom can often be the smallest room in the house – in fact, “smallest room” is an old fashioned name for the bathroom in England.
Because of this fact, the bathroom is the one room in the house where, in terms of the budget, a little can go a long way. By investing larger parts of the budget onto a luxury item – such as a dream bath or elaborate tile installation – that concentration of the budget in one area means that it can often have a far bigger impact than in a larger room.
Is One Enough?
Never forget that one of the other primary functions of a room remodeling is that it can be used to change the function of a room.
Therefore, if you have a budget in mind for remodeling your bathroom, pause and consider if that money could be better served by transforming another room – even a large closet – into a second bathroom.
The original bathroom could perhaps enjoy a renovation instead of a full remodel, freeing up the funds for more overall bathroom space.
These are all just starting points to begin the conversation between you and us when we take the first steps onto the road to your perfect bathroom.
