Bathroom Renovation Checklist

Plan and organise your renovation to help you stay on budget and achieve the desired results

Planning Your Renovation

You usually start a bathroom renovation to improve your bathroom’s form and aesthetics. This then leads to an opportunity to improve the functionality, usability and storage space. A smarter bathroom renovation encapsulates the whole bathroom design, planning and building work that will thoroughly consider your needs now and in the future. Careful planning and then execution of the whole process will ensure you end up with a beautiful bathroom.
Choosing the best layout for your new bathroom depends on many factors. Functionality, design preference, fixtures and fittings, and cost all contribute to the decision. We recommend consulting a qualified interior designer before commencing any home renovation to fully explore your options

Assess Your Needs

  • Measure the dimensions of your current bathroom
  • Make comparisons with what your neighbours have (This helps assure that your home’s value is in line with the neighbourhood.)
  • Decide what features you like about your current bathroom and what you’d like to change

Plan Your Project

  • List all your bathroom remodelling goals
  • Create an idea folder for your dream bathroom remodelling project
  • Determine what your top priorities are
  • Plan for alternate facilities while your bathroom is being worked on
