Bathroom Renovations Ashburton

When you think about your bathroom, does the image that come to mind make you feel proud and happy?  If not, it’s probably time to think about renovating.

Bathroom renovation is a serious business, and an entire industry has evolved specifically to cater to the demands of this rapidly growing market.  Navigating your way through this industry can be a difficult and confusing challenge for inexperienced renovators.  This article will hopefully help you find your way.

Of course throughout the Melbourne metropolitan area you can find thousands of homes that were built during the early 20th century, and sometimes even earlier.  Many homes in Ashburton were built between 1925 and 1945, and most have remain relatively unchanged or with only minor modifications.

Bathroom renovations for Ashburton residents in these older houses should be considered a major priority, not only because of the value it will add to your home, but also because it will make your family safer.  Those old pipes were often made from toxic alloys, and with almost 100 years of corrosion, they could be creating health risks.

Getting your renovation on track, if you’re going to do it properly, means doing plenty of research and visiting different suppliers to find the items your newly renovated bathroom will require.  The product categories you need to consider are:

  • Tiles (wall and floor)
  • Lighting
  • Extractor Fans
  • Ventilation
  • Mirrors
  • Sink
  • Shower
  • Tub (depending on space)
  • Cabinets
  • Towel Rails
  • Pipes and Fittings

Now another thing you should consider is that some of these products should technically only be installed by people with appropriate licenses to install them, such as electricians and plumbers.  You may also need permission from the council before you commence the project, in some special circumstances, which can depend on a lot of different factors.

After sourcing suppliers and researching brands, you would be ready to order the products you want.  Then you pick them up or wait for delivery, and then you can get to work.  Of course you will also need to ensure you have all the necessary tools as well, which is an expense that many novice renovators overlook.

If you worry about the consequences of making mistakes in any of the above steps, it may be more prudent to consider finding bathroom renovations designers in Ashburton who can take care of all this for you.
