Expert Tips For a Modern Renovated Bathrooms
Here are our 5 must-know bathroom remodelling ideas and tips.
A beautifully renovated bathroom can not only be a reflection of your personal style; it can also boost the value of your Auckland home. In fact, a bathroom overhaul can give you
the highest return of any home improvement! Here are our top 5 expert tips for a modern, luxurious renovated bathroom:
1. Know how much it costs
The first step is to determine how much money you’re willing to spend. Knowing your budget will help make better decisions on the scale of your remodelling project, the materials you’re going to use and what details you can splurge on. As you plan your budget, it’s always a good idea to allocate a little extra cash for any unexpected costs that might add up later. Your initial budget planning will go a long way as you move towards a better, renovated bathroom.
2. Plan your bathroom layout
The next step is to finalize your new bathroom layout. To start, we usually recommend thinking about who is going to be using the space and what functionality and features that person might want to have. Adding an extra sink might be a popular choice for many Aucklanders, especially if your renovated bathroom is going to be used by more than one person. Aside from aesthetics and decor, it’s also a good idea to plan for functional storage and use your bathroom space wisely. Do not hesitate to speak to your contractors if you need any layout ideas and planning. Our experienced interior designers can help you come up with beautiful renderings of your renovated bathroom while keeping functionality and comfort in mind!
3. Add a few high-end materials
Here’s a little designer secret: adding a few high-end finishing touches might take your bathroom from great to luxurious! Look for wall coverings, countertops and sink fixtures that are on the higher end of the spectrum. Because bathrooms are usually smaller spaces, you’ll be surprised to discover that this extra step is actually within your budget.
4. Convert your tub into a shower
If you don’t take baths, having a bathtub might be the waste of your precious space. Converting an old tub into a modern, spa-like shower might be very cost effective because you won’t need to reroute your plumbing. While it makes for better use of space, it can also drive the value of your home when it’s time to sell.
5. Get an automated fan
Installing a quality fan is definitely worth every penny. From ensuring an optimum air quality to sucking all the moisture, having a fan is crucial to your bathroom remodel. Those Aucklanders who have younger kids or simply do not want to turn the fan time and time again, consider installing a fan that comes with a motion sensor. You could also get a remote controlled timer so that you could turn on your fan anytime and anywhere.
Whether you’re planning on putting your house up for sale in a few years or living in your home for many years to come, a bathroom renovation is a sure-fire way to add comfort and style to your everyday. It’s also a great way to add value to your house if you decide to sell later on.
