Top 5 Tips for Exceptional Bathroom Renovations in 2020

  1. Have a solid plan

Bathroom renovations are one of the most intricate renovations you can do within your home. Particularly when working within a small space, it is important to start your renovations with a solid plan of what you want to achieve. Spend time researching different bathware options, measure your spaces, and consider how many people your bathroom will service. If you are renovating more than one bathroom – what cohesion would you like to see in your multiple spaces? Choosing attractive bathware is paramount, but functionality is the number one priority for this space. Speak to experts to enhance your understanding of what is required to renovate your bathroom, and keep detailed notes to create a plan that will keep within a budget and time-frame you are happy with.

  1. Define your budget

The average cost of renovating a bathroom in 2020 sits around $18,000 to $21,000 for a standard bathroom, with luxury spaces costing upwards of $28,000. A project manager could be employed to manage the multiple facets of bathroom renovation. Dealing with multiple trades yourself can be time consuming and will often see you extend your timeline or blow out your budget. But keep in mind that bathroom renovation requires multiple trades to complete, so don’t forget to factor in costs for services like design, demolition, waterproofing, plumbing, installing, painting, plastering and more. Ensure you have additional funds to deal with any unexpected problems.


  1. Set your timeline 

Completing a bathroom renovation with professional help usually takes around 2-3 weeks. Bathroom renovations aren’t recommended to be done yourself as the multiple facets of renovating this space require specific skill-sets. Running into unexpected problems is something professionals can deal with easily, and you don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you don’t know how to combat a fault or poor installation. Don’t enter your bathroom renovation lightly – this is a space where you spend a huge portion of your life, and you want it to be done right!


  1. Choose the right products

Does your bathroom service your entire household, or is it an ensuite with a single user? Do you require any specialist equipment in your bathroom like railings or seats, or are you renovating your bathroom to increase the value of your home? All of these factors require you to make the right choices when it comes to products. Athena Bathrooms offers a huge selection of bathware facilities like vanities, mirrors, furniture, showers and baths that will suit your needs, and it is important to speak to someone who understands the nuances of bathroom renovations to ensure you pick the best products for you.

  1. Don’t forget the little things

So now you’ve got your new bathware installed, the tiling is done, and you are completely water-proofed – great job! But the cost and time needed to complete your bathroom isn’t quite done. A brand new bathroom isn’t complete without additions like lighting, storage space, added ventilation and heating for an extended space and more. Keep these kinds of additions at the front of your mind throughout your renovation to ensure you aren’t caught out. Plus, the addition of embellishments like new towels, shower racks, art, and the like just can’t be missed to make your brand new space yours!
