When it comes to small bathroom renovations, the key is to make the most of the available space. Clever layouts can revamp a studio bathroom, while other clients of ours will ask for us to make the most of what they’ve got. This can save you costs in the renovation process. Small bathrooms sometimes just require a retiling or a cleanup, with grout removed.
Modern bathroom renovations may require a whole project including new fixtures and layouts, or it could be about bringing modern elements to a classic existing design. For modern bathrooms, it’s important that the style has a degree of timelessness; trends come and go, and sticking to the latest trends may make your bathroom look dated once trends change.
If you’re on a budget, there are a few ways you can easily spruce up this room of the house:
- Do cosmetic renovations DIY — this can include building storage shelves and painting. Just be sure to do the right planning, and speak to experts beforehand for professional results. For tiles, plumbing, electrical and waterproofing, it’s a good idea to contact a skilled and experienced professional.
- Work with what you’ve got — if you can, keep your existing bathroom layout to save on the time and cost of plumbing and waterproofing.
- Shop around for the best prices — get a minimum of three quotes for any job you’re getting done by a tradesperson.
Grout can ruin the look of an entire bathroom. That’s why it’s a good idea to start small with your bathroom renovating ideas. What can you tweak e.g. removing grout, and where will you need to enlist the help of a tile restoration specialist or bathroom renovation company? At this stage, you could also create a moodboard or view bathroom renovation inspiration to help you set rules to govern the design process.
Bathroom renovations can be costly. You could easily budget tens of thousands of dollars to completely rebuild an average sized bathroom. Demolition, relining, waterproofing, tiling, plumbing, electrical, painting are all services that may be required during this process.
There are options however to restore what you have to bring your existing bathroom back to near new condition. This could work out to cost a fraction of a complete rebuild.
