What You Need to Know About Renovating Your Bathroom

Renovating your bathroom is an exciting prospect and your opportunity to have things exactly as you want them in one of the most important rooms in your home. 

To ensure you end up with the finished result you desire, it’s important to consider and plan a number of things first. So below, we’ve written your essential low-down of everything you need to know about renovating your bathroom.


Your current bathroom layout may work fine for you, but if it doesn’t, what would you change? This is your opportunity to reconfigure things and to think about potential additions that would give you your dream bathroom. For example, you may want to move the tub away from the window, or add a freestanding shower. So long as you plan things to fit with your wet walls (the wall or walls in your bathroom where the pipes for showers, sinks, baths and toilets hide behind), you can pick the layout that works best for you.


The colour scheme of your bathroom will be one of its main features, so choose something that reflects your style while also being long-lasting. It’s probably wise to go for a neutral bathroom suite in case of selling your home in the future, but you can choose more statement colours for tiles and accessories if you wish. 

The colour scheme can also affect how big your bathroom looks, so if you have a smaller space to renovate, lighter colours can help it look a little bigger. You can also use lighting and mirrors to maximise the feeling of space in the room.


While you can have any type of flooring for your bathroom, laminate, tiles or hardwood are probably the best options for keeping clean and withstanding small amounts of water that are likely to spill. All of these come in a range of designs and colours, so you can have fun matching your chosen colour scheme to achieve a perfectly stylish look.


While we don’t want to spoil your fun, it’s important to know exactly what your budget is before starting out, so that you can stick to it! The cost of bathroom suites right down to accessories can vary hugely in price, so make sure you know what you have to spend and try not to get carried away!
