Upgrading your bathroom is easier than you might think. Follow these tips to uplift your space and add value to your home.

 

You can take your bathroom from drab to fab. All it takes is careful planning and a little help from the experts. Although it’s tempting to rush off to select your (that’s the loo, basin and bath) and tapware, there are a few things you need to do to ensure your bathroom transformation goes smoothly. 

Find inspiration

Begin by getting a sense of the type of bathroom you want. Find inspiration. Look at Pinterest, magazines, blogs, renovation shows and even friends’ homes to kickstart the process of defining your style.

Make a mood board

Collect images and samples of what you love and create a collage. Include colours, textures and the style that best reflects you and the people who will be using the bathroom.

Plan your space

Now for the practical: measure the area you’re working with. Mark out existing fixtures and plumbing (it’s more economical if you don’t move fixtures too far) and ask a few key questions:

  • Who will be using the bathroom the most, and what do they need?
  • What are the priority inclusions?
  • Do I have room for a bath?
  • How much storage do I want?

Create a budget

Budgets are critical and they are not hard to compile. It’s important to work out how much money you have available so that you don’t end up overspending. Always leave an amount as a contingency, because bathroom renovations often throw up budget surprises. Caroma has a free online budget template which can help you plan.

Ask the experts

Consulting professionals is important when it comes to bathrooms – and the earlier you do so, the better. A number of different skills have to come together, including plumbing, tiling, waterproofing and electrics. Obtain at least two quotes for each trade and be sure to check licences and reviews.

Choose the essentials

There are many decisions to make when renovating a bathroom, including tiles, vanity, sink, bath, shower, taps, toilets and accessories.This is the fun part. For a seamless finish, ensure all these elements work together harmoniously. Luckily, Caroma can help. The Luna range has been designed to work together, no matter what you choose.

Health & Safety

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
