Our Bathroom Makeover

For about a year now, we have been thinking about making over our master bathroom. Finally, we got on with it and discovered just how much there is to think about when installing a new bathroom.

Renewing a bathroom is not cheap and causes a lot of disruption, so we wanted to be as organized as possible. We wanted to make sure that we found the right fixtures and made the right decor decisions, so we did quite a bit of research to help us to do this. Here is our checklist to help you to do the same when it is time to replace your bathroom.

Bath or shower

The first decision for us was bath or shower. We both use a shower most days, but I like a bath every now and again and wanted a big one, which did not leave a lot of room for a shower. In the end, we ended up with both by turning a corner of the bathroom into a wet area and going for a mid-sized bath instead of a big one.

Once we had decided on the basic layout, we were able to move forward and choose the decor and finish.

Color scheme

For this bathroom, we went for clean lines, so choose light colors for the suite, flooring and walls. This color scheme has the added advantage of making the most of the natural light in the morning.

All of the fixtures are chrome. To add a touch of luxury and color we will be buying new towels in a rich tone.

The right tiles and flooring

The tiles and flooring were relatively easy to find. Again, we went for neutral tiles on both the floor and walls. We did this rather than going for the most up to date look that would leave us with a bathroom that looked dated a couple of years down the line.

Dealing with the rubbish

One thing we did not realize until we got started was just how much rubbish we would generate. By the time the walls had been stripped of the old tiles and we took up the old flooring we had a lot of rubbish to get rid of so realized we needed a skip. We turned to Skip and Bin construction waste removal because on their website we were able to find local skip suppliers quickly.

At the click of the button, we got several quotes so were able to hire the skip we needed at the best price. It was also easy to find those skip firms that would let us put the entire bathroom suite into the skip. Apparently, not all firms take them.

Unforeseen extras

The revamp went well. Because we bought everything we needed in advance there were no delays waiting for building supplies. The only issue we had was that one of the walls needed re-plastering, which put us back by a day.

Talking to friends who have recently redone their bathrooms unforeseen extras are normal. Therefore, it makes sense to budget around 10% for unforeseen issues and extras
