Bathroom Renovation Tips
Completing a bathroom renovation can be quick and simple with the right know how. To get the best result for your bathroom renovation we recommend doing a little research, to start you off we have listed a few ideas. Our team here at AA Renovations have years of experience completing bathroom renovations so we want to share some of the key tips and tricks of the trade.
Tip 1: Choose the right builders.
Before you begin any of the renovation project it is vital to research your contractors. Choosing the right contractors can make a huge difference to every aspect of your renovation.
When trying to decide on a contractor there are a few important things to consider. A contractor’s testimonials, references and portfolio will give you a good indication of their customer’s satisfaction and their abilities. The contract company’s qualifications, registrations and memberships to organisations such as Homefirst Builders will show whether they are a trustworthy and industry recognised organisation. Finally a good building or renovation organisation should have guarantees in place to keep your peace of mind.
Tip 2: Make the most of your budget.
No matter what size your budget is, you should be trying to maximise it for the best results. A good contractor will take this budget into account from the beginning and stick to it until the end. There are however, a few things you can do to make it go even further.
While you may already have decided exactly what appliances, accessories and chattels you will use, it is still important to shop around. Prices can fluctuate and specials can start and end, so it is important to keep track of the best prices around. When purchasing a bathroom suite do not forget to ask for their best price. Asking for a quote and then comparing and contrasting prices before purchasing can save your hundreds.
Tip 3: Ensure the project finishes on time.
Not only is it inconvenient to have a project going on longer than necessary, but it can be costly too. To ensure your project will finish when the project manager says it will, ask for a guarantee. Getting a guarantee, either in writing or by choosing a renovation company like us here at AA Renovations who have an overarching guarantee for all clients, can save you the time, money and hassle of a prolonged project.
Tip 4: Make the most of your space.
The size of your bathroom should influence your suite and design decisions. To get the most out of your bathroom renovation we recommend you take into account how to best utilise the space for maximum style and efficiency. For example, choosing a diagonal corner shower can create the illusion of space in a relatively small bathroom. Alternatively, a bathroom with a large square footage can make use of design schemes which offer cohesion to its different elements.
If you are not sure about how to utilise your bathrooms space, simply speak to your local showroom hosts. Bathroom showrooms are a great way to visualise how your new appliances could work in your home.
Tip 5: Know what you want and stick to it.
It is important to have an idea of what you want your bathroom to look like. You should keep this in mind throughout the project and ensure that your project manager is well aware of your stipulations. To ultimately end up with your dream bathroom you should collate your ideas and present them at the initial consultation. You should then be able to review this when planning begins and the bathroom is drawn up. If however you are not sure of what you want, do not fret, a good project manager can make suggestions and offer you many options to review.
