A Beginner’s Guide to Re-modelling Your Bathroom (3 pics)




Although interior design can be a fun way for you to express your creativity, the work that goes on behind it can actually be pretty tricky. There are so many measurements to take, and what exactly should you have in hand before going to a showroom? Today’s post should point out the key things you need to know when approaching a bathroom re-modelling job. Get all your measurements For anyone who isn’t mathematically gifted, the number of measurements needed for a re-modelling job can at first seem rather intimidating, but you just need to know how to break them down. Begin by noting down the overall room size and square footage, before moving on to measure the doors widths, their distance from the walls on either side, and the allowance needed to open these doors. Then, move on to measure the dimensions of any immovable objects in the room, such as grade listed features that can’t be removed, fireplaces and so on. Finally, take the ceiling height.

Double-check everything Now go back and make sure you haven’t left anything out. Have you forgotten any nooks and crannies or wall recesses? They might not seem important now, but they will later if you encounter a problem. It may even be that a section jutting out conceals vital pipework, so now matter how strange a shape your bathroom ends up looking, as long as it’s accurate, that is what matters.   Draw everything out If you’re going to a specialist fitter, they’ll be able to generate a room image for you, but you should always go with your own drawn out just in case they make any mistakes. To see where things fit and how you can re-position furniture, you need a visual representation. Once you have it on paper, draw them in the bathroom itself by using pencil and chalk outlines on the floor.

Work out your budget Showrooms are useful, but staff may want to show you the most expensive range while your wallet says otherwise. From the toilet to the bathroom cabinets , take a look at some online retailers who have a lot of different ranges, and put together a budget for the whole room. Then, if you see a suite you love but you know you can get it for a cheaper price online, you won’t be coerced into spending beyond your limits.   Time-scales Finally, before signing on the dotted line with any contractors, get several different quotes on the work involved and how long it will take. People assume that a small bathroom will be a quick and easy job for a tradesman, but everything from the tiles you’ve chosen to the shower you’re having fitted can have an impact on the time required.   Hopefully the above list of considerations should stand you in good stead when you come to re-model your bathroom.
