Renovating a bathroom is a exciting but daunting process and comes with its challenges. Our experienced team can guide you through the renovations as we work on them, keeping you in the loop and giving you insight into the process.
When it comes to building or renovating, one of the primary steps is to work out your budget. This is a crucial step that many overlook. By setting a budget, you can make realistic decisions for your project that won’t break the bank. We also highly recommend setting a realistic budget that allows for the unexpected, especially when it comes to bathroom renovations. Sometimes we find that a bathroom re-model presents problems that were otherwise unnoticed. By addressing these issues when we find them we can ensure that you will have a new bathroom that will last for years to come.
The team at Finesse Projects are experienced, bathroom builders. We understand the temptation to conduct a DIY renovation project, however, when it comes to bathroom renovations, it’s best to hire a professional. A significant part of bathroom renovations is to waterproof, if you don’t waterproof properly, you can face costly repairs further down the track.
Ventilation is another crucial element of a bathroom renovation. There’s nothing more upsetting than seeing the signs of mould on your brand new bathroom. When we work on a bathroom, no matter the size, we ensure that there is enough ventilation. Even if you don’t have windows, we can install exhaust fans that will ensure the steam is extracted.
Trying to Fit too Much In
You might have found your dream bathroom on Instagram, however, it’s important to make your expectations realistic. We can work with any sized bathroom to ensure that your bathroom dreams are realised. If you are working with a small bathroom, you might not be able to fit all the elements you initially planned, such as a bathtub or spacious shower. When working with smaller spaces, separating the toilet from the primary bathroom can free up some extra space, should the rest of your home allow.
Lighting is another element of renovating that is often the last thought, however, a bathroom needs good lighting to allow for optimal use. Most grooming occurs in the bathroom, so it’s important to have great lighting. Not only the primary light source, but you should also consider where you need the lighting most? A large mirror and light-toned tiles are great ways of optimising the lighting without needing to install multiple lights.
Similar to ventilation, drainage is a crucial element of a bathroom and will ensure that it lasts a long time. We have many years of experience in creating bathrooms that are designed to endure. The key to perfect drainage it to ensure a slight slope in the floor, this can be difficult with smaller bathrooms, so it’s important to hire professionals who will deliver high-quality and functional results.
Don’t Follow Trends
Whilst trends are great for inspiration, a space like a bathroom is not the space to be designing to follow a trend. It’s a risky space that should be designed with longevity in mind as renovating a bathroom can be a lengthy and costly process. Opt for neutral colour palettes and simple but stylish tiles. You don’t want to get to two years after the renovation and already be out of style. This doesn’t mean that your bathroom can’t be trendy, adding small touches such as a colourful bathmat or toothbrush holder.
If you’re new to the building world it can be intimidating to decide on the appropriate materials for your home. Our processes allow us to get to know our clients and their projects more in-depth. So we can provide you with the knowledge and guidance to select the correct materials for your bathrooms.
Not Enough Storage
Trying to work storage into a bathroom can be a tricky process, however, it’s necessary in a bathroom. You might not think you need a lot of storage, but once you don’t have enough the problem shows. This is why it’s good to get as much storage space as possible while you’re renovating rather than pull in temporary storage and clutter later on.
