Here are some tips to help you get started:
Initial inspection and recording of obvious damages
Examine the bathroom thoroughly and record which tasks have priority to be done. They do not need to be done all at once and all at once.
Is there water leaking from the faucets, from the cistern, from the sink siphon or around the basin? Does the pipette smell bad? Are there any stains or mold on the ceiling or walls? Do you have broken or inflated tiles?
These are damages that in consultation with the technical workshop should be repaired. Before proceeding with changes and transformations in tiles, sanitary ware, etc. You may not need to change them all. Only make repairs where necessary.
Preventive plumbing inspection
If there is no obvious damage to your bathroom and you can allocate an extra amount, we recommend that you check your bathroom plumbing on both the water supply and sewerage network anyway. The test will show that everything is working properly and there is no hidden water leakage. Hidden water leak which has not yet caused damage. The control is done with a special infrared camera and with a drainage camera.
Job planning and your budget
Determine how much money you can spend on renovating your bathroom. Maybe your budget is low from the beginning and your bathroom has damage that creates problems in your daily life, in your health and in the structural elements of your home. Then damage repairs are a priority.
After recording all the damage and the needs of the bathroom space, determine in collaboration with the technical workshop, which of these works you should and want to start first. Then launch the next repairs. Set a strict work schedule and schedule to get results.
If there is no damage to the plumbing that needs repair and you have little money, you can make small aesthetic changes to taste. You can change some accessories or install new lighting fixtures or a new cabinet.
If you can make more money, you can focus on bigger changes. Like changing the wall and floor tiles or changing the bathtub with a modern shower cabin. Again, it all depends on your budget.
Ideas for saving money on bathroom renovation
1. Limit the tile
Work on changing bathroom tiles can increase the cost of renovation. To save money, limit the amount of tiles and focus on areas such as the floor. It is also important to put good quality tile in the shower area. On the contrary, it is not necessary to cover the whole walls with tiles. If half of the wall, from the middle to the ceiling is plastered, it can then only be painted and reduce costs.
But if you definitely want to cover the whole bathroom with tile, then it is better to prefer good quality tiles. You will find many at affordable prices, as you will find them in a wide variety in the market.
Be aware that handmade ornate ceramic tiles cost much more. So it is better to choose only a few such pieces that will be placed in two or three selected places, to give the appropriate decorative shades. And of course you can always choose a simple and classic tile. It will also provide you with the opportunity for many combinations with accessories, to give the style you want in the space.
2. Bathroom sink counter
A popular trend in renovations is granite counter-tops. Because the bathroom counter is small, installing a granite counter-top is relatively inexpensive compared to a new kitchen counter-top, for example, granite bathroom counter-top!
But even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. How; Look at the colour. Neutral colours, in dark shades such as black and brown, as well as light beige are more popular, which means that they are more expensive.
To save money, consider and evaluate a wider variety of colours that suit your space.
3. Wall painting
Painting bathroom walls is the most economical and perhaps the most effective way to give an air of freshness and renewal.
But do not think that you do not have to spend time to choose the right colour shades that will make a difference in the space. You can play with the color in places like the window, bathtub or shower, sink, mirror, toilet, switchboards, wall corners and floor.
Another thing to consider is humidity. Since mold grows easily in an area such as the bathroom where there is daily humidity, then you should invest in high quality satin paint. Even better you can invest in a special anti-mildew paint, suitable for areas with humidity, such as bathrooms.
4. The accessories that make the difference in the bathroom renovation
The renovation of the bathroom includes small interventions that give style to the space in a very economical way. You can change the lights, the faucets on the taps, the hangers for the towels, while you can also make small constructions that will give you more storage space, such as shelves above the basin or next to the sink.
