    Bathroom renovation tips

    Bathroom Specialists

    Hi, my partner and I are looking to make our bathroom a bit more luxurious (nothing too la de da haha but just a bit of a flare, you know?). What recommendations do you have in mind for the design and what are the best facilities to change to achieve the ideal results? Should we prioritize changing the bath and shower over say the sink or toilet, as we are also on a budget?

    "I'll have a look on Instagram first. Then look to see what combination of furniture, tiles and sanitary will give a stylish design and try to make sense of the budget. You can always upgrade your sanitary as long as the walls and floor area are covered with no gaps and uneven ground and bad labour is to avoid. Maybe you'll like to proceed with finding the cost of the items, then, stripping off the walls, levelling the floor area and walls, plumbing, sanitary reposition with all plumbing adjustments and tiling patterns, tile sizes, shapes and finally with decorating (grout colour, tile colour, wall colours and brands, sanitary suite, other bathroom furniture). Always remember that nobody's rushing you. But once ready just have the right person/ company to make sure there's good communication, skills. A knowledgeable and friendly service. The least you want is someone who gives you a bad feeling about everything."

    "Hi- Depends on your budget. New bath/shower bath screen. You may be able to tile over existing, but you’ll need to get a pro to assess. That would save money and time! Taps, towel heater would also “lift” the room."
