What You Should Think About Before Renovating Your Bathroom

Renovating your bathroom can be one of the most energy and budget taxing elements of your entire project. This process can go smooth and effectively if you plan everything before beginning. To ensure that you can complete your bathroom project without exhausting yourself and your budget, we have compiled 3 tips for remodelling your bathroom on a budget. 

While bathroom renovations can be tedious, planning can significantly improve the process and make it easy to build your dream. To effectively achieve what you want, this is the most important step of renovating any room of your home.

Not only for your sake, but for builders, this plan will allow everyone to accurately understand and reflect your vision in the final product. Even if you simply want to remodel to increase your sale price, planning is important so you can ensure that the final product is perfect.


Aside from the plan, an important aspect of designing your dream renovation is to have a vision. Your vision is what you want your space to look like in the end – it will be difficult for you and the crews to complete your renovation if you have no ideas what you want it to look like. 

If you have no ideas, it could be helpful to either consult an expert or research current housing trends that may give you inspiration for your home. Once you have found something you like, you can begin planning.

When you have a solid vision and plan of your space, you will begin designing it. This includes checking the existing room to decide if it has the capacity to bear the changes you have planned to this point. Then, depending on the outcome of the results, you will adjust your plan accordingly. 

For a bathroom renovation, it is important that you understand exactly how much space you will need for every aspect of the space. This means knowing how big or small your shower will be, whether you simply want a shower closet or if you want a bathtub, and how big or small your sink needs to be given the space remaining. 

It is important that these questions are answered to ensure that your bathroom renovation runs as smoothly as possible. The answer to these questions is also necessary before moving onto the next step in the process.


We understand that very few of us are wealthy and cannot drop cash at everything we want whenever we want. So, we believe it is integral to your project to create a strict budget plan. Home renovations can be extremely expensive, especially in Melbourne, so it is helpful to understand how much you have available to use on your project. A clear budget will help keep you on track during the process. 

Coming up with a good budget can be difficult, especially for a bathroom renovation. A smart budget is created by knowing and understanding which items need to be the highest quality – and therefore higher prices – and where you can compromise some quality to get a cheaper price on items.
