Some important things you must keep in mind while planning your bathroom renovation project.

Balanced Budget Approach to Your New Bathroom Design

Wrong budgeting can get you in a difficult financial position in the middle of the project. Set financial boundaries by at least getting ideas of labour and material costs from builders or installers you can trust. As you have made all your calculations on what the bathroom installation and bathroom furniture may cost, you can decide on what suits your budget. How much you can afford to spend, deduct labour charges from it. The remaining amount will give you the perfect idea of how much you can set aside for the floor tiles, wall tiles, cabinets, taps, mixers, fixtures, and the extras that you want.

Is There Any Timeline For Bathroom Renovation

How Long Does It To Renovate a Bathroom?

It does not matter how big, small or simple your bathroom is. Renovating your bathroom will take more than just a couple of days. This comes down to how extensive your bathroom remodelling design project is. Regardless of the bathroom size always consider that your contractor will have to administer certain steps that will take the same amount of time. For example, replacing the lead pipe if you have any to copper or to pvc pipes. Setting a realistic timeline is necessary so that you, the resident of the house, can make temporary adjustments during the time of the bathroom refurbishment. Add a day or two for cleaning the bathroom and making it fit for use and learning to use the new features once the renovation is completed.

Does Bathroom Renovation Go In Sequence?

Bathroom remodelling has a sequence. Unless you adopt a systematic approach, your remodel project might be unnecessarily prolonged and many things may go wrong. At Powerpillar, we make sure that we work from down to up. In other words, we start from demolition, and then the plumbing and electrics. Followed by floor and walls before the ceiling. This sequence has been used in several bathrooms was always successful. It will not only prevent mistakes during installation but also makes sure that if there is any leaks in the pipes you will notice before installing the furniture.

What Is Your Bathroom Design Choice?

There are many choices of furniture, designs, paint colours, appliances, faucets, tiles, fixtures, etc. when it comes to refurbishing your bathroom. There are many options for fixtures and appliances. The list of things that demand your attention is never-ending not to talk of this modern days technologies. Nowadays, you have smart toilets, water saving taps or shower mixers that knows when you need hot shower. With the wide array of design options at your disposal, you might end up placing design over functionality. In this situation, there is the challenge of sticking to the idea and budget. Ideally, you must first choose those items that will define the look of the new bathroom design, and then proceed to make the rest of the choices around them. Remember that the bathroom is a part of your home, so you must consider the larger picture. Does the fittings go along with the existing colour or materials in the rest of the house?

Do You Have Unlimited Space For Your Bathroom Remodel?

What is the smallest room in the house? You guessed it! The bathroom is usually the smallest room in the house. Electrics and plumbing especially with what most people are going for these days. Concealed taps. They take up quite some space behind the shower. Draw the shape of the bathroom and measure up the square metre for correct purchase of the materials. That is why at Powerpillar we help you with 3D virtual drawing with accurate measurements of materials and furniture that will fit to the size of your bathroom. We give you the option to maximise the space in the bathroom. Using virtual drawing will reduce risk ordering or buying something that will not fit to the space or does not match the colour you intended. Sometimes, we have ordered materials but the original colour is not the same as what we saw online. Getting the wrong material or fixture will extend and delay the bathroom remodelling. It is most times advisable to hand over the job of renovation to a reliable bathroom renovation company to manage. They know what they do with experience. They will take the consequences of delays, damages, returns and warranties. Avoid ending up with something that does not fit, and make sure there is enough free space in the bathroom. Everything you wanted might fit but do you have enough space to use and enjoy your new bathroom? Do not block the way! Use your intelligence if you are planning for more bathroom storage. Think of accessibility while compromising style because your bathroom might have irregular corners

Big Difference Comes With Small Things

There is no doubt that major changes such as a new sink, toilet, bathtub, and shower door can make a big difference to the look of the bathroom. What most people do not realize is that even small things like faucets, door handles, drawer handles, and showerheads can make a difference too. It is wise to make a checklist of these tiny components and add them to your shopping list. The best part is that they will not affect your budget by a lot, yet they will make an appreciable impact.

Do It Yourself? (DIY)?

Most of the works in bathroom refurbishment required highly skilled, experienced and some certified professionals. The works that may require these bathroom fitting professionals are the plumbing and electrical works. Bathroom renovation can throw surprises at you when you least expect them. Some of the surprises are discovering rusted and crumbling plumbing stacks or pipe works. Rotten joists due to a leaky shower which may lead to taking out the floor boards and inviting a builder. These build up pressure on completing the job on time and within budget.

Shopping For The Right Material

The main reason for choosing the floor and wall surfaces must be waterproofing and slip resistance (Anti-slippery floor). It is all about just price, appearance and personal choices that make the difference. There are different kinds of finishing surfaces; granite, marble, and ceramic materials. Highly branded and durable ones can be slightly expensive. You can go for them if they are within your budget. Stained or painted cement, vinyl and vinyl tiles or sheets are relatively inexpensive. You may as well decide to plaster or skim the walls with water resistant cements.

Electricals: Lighting and Ventilation

Most bathrooms have big windows and have enough lights coming through. Recently, most people downlight or spotlights in their new bathrooms. We would suggest that you get a qualified electrician to do the job for you. The lights you should use are the ones specifically meant for bathrooms. Bathrooms is a damp place. Mostly filled with vapour and humidity. These can give rise to mould which is quite unhealthy. Adequate ventilation can also prevent wood decay and protect the bathroom furniture. During the wiring process, discuss with the builder and the electrician where would better for an extractor fan.

The Cleaning

The will be a lot of dust left after bathroom renovation. After the grouting you need a special chemicals for the cleaning the tiles. Newly renovated bathroom needs a thorough cleaning before you can enjoy it. Paint and cement drops and stains, light fixtures, windows, floors, and walls cannot be overlooked, but cleaning them can be a daunting task. If your bathroom has undergone major changes, it is recommended that you hire a professional cleaning company rather than doing it yourself.
