Budget Bathroom Renovations
When you make a decision to renovate your bathroom you will be expecting to either spend a lot on a complete new bathroom or to just update the bathroom you have. If you decide that you need to renew your bathroom suite as well as new tiles it will be worthwhile consulting an expert in this field.
Of all the household jobs the novice handyman undertakes, bad plumbing has the potential to cause the most damage and therefore cost massive amounts in repairs and remodelling. A seemingly properly plumbed in bath may seem for a while but behind the scenes may be dripping down through the floorboards and interior walls. Only after months of damage will this become apparent, but will leave you with a huge repair bill. So without question – if you’re in any doubt about doing it by yourself then get a plumber in to do it properly!
On the renovation side of things, there are so many new types of baths and showers to choose from it would probably make your head spin. So make sure you visit your local bathroom suppliers and they’ll advise you on what is best for the size of your bathroom and if it is possible to install a power shower. A power shower depends very much on the water pressure in your area.
If you are in a low pressure area it is possible to install a further tank. If you have enough room you can have a walk in shower. When it comes to baths you will be spoiled for choice. Jacuzzi and whirlpool baths are very popular at the moment as are Victorian baths. If you are going to spend on a bathroom renovation you can turn it into the most luxurious room in the house.
On the other hand your bathroom renovation may just involve updating your present room. You could start with a new coat of paint. This will freshen up the bathroom immediately. A new light fitting will also help change the appearance of the room and you can get a great selection from most reputable DIY stores.
If your bathroom is constantly cluttered it is a good idea to invest in some extra storage cabinets. These can be fitted over the hand basin to store toiletries such as toothpaste and makeup. Cabinets for under the hand basin can be used for larger items such as spare towels and toilet rolls. If you are thinking of replacing the floor tiles you should look for end of line bargains as you can get top of the range tiles at a fraction of the cost.
You may need to re grout the tiles surrounding the bath and this is not a difficult job but it will make a huge difference to the overall appearance of the bathroom renovation. Investing in new towels to coordinate with the new colour scheme will complete the look of your newly updated bathroom.
