Bathroom Renovation Guide
Bathrooms and en suites may be the smallest rooms in the house but to carry out a refurbishment involves almost every trade from plumbers to tilers, painters and plasterers. And the key to getting it right is organisation. These small projects have a tendency to drag on, so to ensure the contractor and his crew are out of your hair as swiftly as possible make sure you have bought everything before the builder starts. This means all materials can be delivered as soon as they are needed on site. This will avoid unnecessary delays. Think about the details that you would like to include and discuss all of them before work starts. For example, if you want a recess in your shower to hold shampoo and shower gels, be clear about this from the outset as it will be difficult and costly to install after the tiler has started.
Calculate the floor and wall areas separately and allow a minimum of 10 per cent extra for wastage. When getting a quote for tiles make sure that the supplier includes grout adhesive and tile trims as this can be an unwelcome extra cost once you have committed to a particular tile.
When choosing shower doors there are a number of options: off-the-shelf or the bespoke frame-less glass screens and doors that are made to order and need to be measured once all of the tiling is finished.
Another important consideration is the power source for lighting around mirrors and shaver sockets. A great idea if you are fitting a mirrored cabinet is to get the contractor to install the socket inside the cabinet so that your toothbrush or shaver can be stored inside while charging keeping surfaces free.
