How do you renovate a bathroom stress free? Work with a designer!

Renovating your bathroom is a humongous task and one which requires proper planning. If not done correctly costs can escalate well over budget, leading to a stressful and overwhelming experience.

Hiring a professional designer not only turns your dream bathroom into a reality but also makes the experience enjoyable and stress free.

Why do you need a Professional Bathroom Designer?

It’s very important to get the layout of your bathroom right. Your designer will begin by designing a layout which is functional and practical. Danni from RenoVogue believes it’s important to understand how a family functions in the home and how the bathroom is to be used.

You need to consider the placement of baths, vanities and taps, etc.  Provisions also need to be made for ample storage, adequate ventilation and power points. Lighting, which can sometimes be overlooked, needs to be thoroughly planned to ensure the right results. Whether it be ambient lighting, or lighting for applying makeup, the right designer will be able to advise you about the most appropriate lighting options.

Your designer will also help you select finishes such as stone, tiles and the appropriate joinery material. Selecting the right finishes is crucial to the design process. These finishes not only need to compliment the design, but need to stand the test of time.

Make sure the designer clearly understands what you want. Be open and don't hesitate to ask questions.

Make sure the designer clearly understands what you want. Be open about your expectations, and don't hesitate to ask questions. You should try and decide on a budget before you start as bathroom renovations can cost anywhere between $5,000 and $80,000. Also, ask for a tentative time frame required to complete the project.
