4 Essential Points For Bathroom Remodelling in Sydney

by Jun 12, 2017Makeovers & Renovations

Bathroom remodelling Sydney is an exciting mission. But, before you start getting caught up with colours, bathtub designs or towel handles, let’s look at a couple less exciting tasks you’ll need to accomplish to make your dream a reality.

Below are five points that’ll help you manage your resources, keep the project flowing smoothly and take care of the project. These tasks are often overlooked when undertaking bathroom remodelling in Sydney.

#1 – Create & Stick to A Budget

Your bathroom remodelling Sydney dream will remain an idea unless you allocate some cash for the project. You can opt to save for the project or take a home improvement loan. Always consider your options on how to finance your home improvement project as this may set some limits on your investment.

If you have no idea on how much it may cost you or how much you’ll need to set aside, you can request some no obligation free quotes. As a starting point a complete bathroom remodelling project in Sydney packages normally start at $10,000. Depending on what features or styles your wish to incorporate this may influence this amount too. Obviously more designer or luxurious options can add significant costs to the project.

If you are attempting to manage all the work yourself ensure you have factored in all costs including bathroom design, materials and labour into the total sum.

#2 – Plan Time Accordingly

Whether you have a small or large bathroom, the time needed to do a full bathroom remodelling in Sydney depends on the number of items you are replacing. As you can imagine a bathroom contractor goes through the same steps for a small bathroom as though it was a large one.

Remember to consider the time taken to facilitate processes such as procurement which often entails downtime for shipping. If ordering items such as custom tiles, or a specially designed vanity, make sure delivery happens when the installer or contractor needs them.

A well thought out sequence will help you achieve an efficient project and avoid unnecessary renovation errors and associated costs. Even if you have only one bathroom to plan for, a work schedule will go a long way in ensuring there is minimal interference with the project or your family.

#4 – Choose Carefully on Design Style and Functionality

If you are planning for a major bathroom remodelling Sydney project, consider doing a “full gut.” When done by professionals, demolition allows full access to all the required areas for the new build. As a result you new bathroom will function impeccably, just as planned. Also, you may reveal signs of water damage, corroded plumbing, and design errors such as non-waterproofing around baths or showers.

When thinking about paint colour, tiles, vanities, showers, tubs, faucets, etc. choose a design item you want to prominently feature then work the rest of the bathroom around it.

Take note of your desired functionality and consider aspects such as:

  • who will use the bathroom; and
  • how it’ll fit in with the rest of the house.

Also, if you are planning to sell the home in the near future, who would be your target buyer? In this case make sure the bathroom has the functionality and design styles that appeal to them. There is no point creating your ideal bathroom in a home that you are getting rid of in a few years time.

#5 – Don’t Forget About Ventilation

Ventilation is critical in a wet room. It needs proper planning and experience to get the optimum results of a ventilation system. Decisions include choosing the right fan and deciding on the best position for its installation. Then you need to ensure the electrical wiring is handled by a professional electrician.

Make sure you eliminate mould in your newly remodelled Sydney bathroom through ventilation. A well-ventilated bathroom is not only healthier, but it also ensures wooden fixtures last longer.

After the construction part of the remodelling exercise is completed, ensure you undertake the final clean. Do a thorough clean-up of all cabinetry, ductwork, and any other fixtures.
