3. Set a Budget
This may be the last thing you want to think about when planning a renovation, but it must be done! Outlining an overall budget will help prevent you from overspending. Throughout the renovation process, keep checking up on this budget and reminding yourself of how much budget is remaining.
4. Choose a Statement Piece
A statement piece is usually the largest piece in your bathroom, which can be the shower or bathtub. Once you have decided your statement piece you can now explore the sizes and shapes that best fit and utilise the space in your bathroom. If you chose both, a shower bath is probably your best space saving option. Choose from a square, B-bath or P-bath with a glass shower screen to create the illusion of a larger space.
Consider the amount of storage you may need, depending on the size of your household to avoid cluttered, un-tidy spaces. No matter the size of the bathroom, there is always a storage solution. Choosing a vanity unit with a generous amount of storage is a must, most of our furniture ranges have co-ordinating storage from mirror cabinets to side units if needed.
