Dos and Don'ts for Bathroom Renovation

A bathroom renovation is one of the best upgrades you can do around the house if you are looking for a good return on investment. If you’re planning on selling your home and want to increase the value of your house, then you might want to look into this home renovation idea.

To make sure your bathroom makeover is done right, here are some dos and don’ts to consider:

Dos for a bathroom renovation

  • Do comply with Australian bathroom regulation standards: All building work must follow the Building Code of Australia including renovating a bathroom. You need to make sure that the whole shower floor, walls, and fittings are all waterproofed.
  • Do stick with the budget: Overcapitalising is a big no-no when renovating a bathroom. When selling your house, you want to make sure that you’re going to get your money back. As much as possible, try to stick with your budget.
  • Do find a good builder and plumber: The builder will renovate your bathroom, and your plumber will do all the pipework and fixtures. You don’t want the builder to do all the work as they don’t have the appropriate experience in installing pipes and fixtures.

Don’ts for a bathroom renovation

  • Don’t attempt to DIY: Doing it yourself is more affordable, but when you’re doing major work you might want to leave it to a professional. This way you avoid making costly mistakes and voiding your home insurance policy.
  • Don’t use the bathroom during the renovation: You will need to use a spare bathroom during the renovation. If you don’t have one, you can ask a family or friend if you can use theirs. The bathroom renovation will typically only last for a few days, so there’s a bit of a sacrifice but the end result will be worth it.
  • Don’t forget to look for inspiration: A great home idea starts by finding a good source of inspiration. Look for design ideas for your bathroom that will define your personal style. Don’t forget about functionality as well such as adding storage and installing low-flow faucets and showerheads to conserve water and save money.

Whether your bathroom is small or big, it’s important that you follow these do’s and don’t when completing a bathroom makeover, so you can enjoy its updated design and function for many years to come.
