The bathroom is arguably one of the most rewarding rooms in the house to renovate. Do it right and it’ll bring you years of pleasure. But do it wrong and it might end up being your biggest nightmare.
If you’re planning house renovations, North London homeowners should start with the bathroom: it’s a great way to freshen up the look and feel of your home. But before you start taking tiles off the walls or removing the bathtub, you need to understand exactly what you’re in for.
At Combit Construction, builders in North London, as a team of specialist builders, we’ve completed many successful bathroom remodel projects. And that’s why we’ve put together this step-by-step guide to help you through each stage of your project: we don’t want you to make any of the common DIY mistakes!
This might sound obvious, but we can’t put enough emphasis on planning! The more forethought and effort you put into planning, the more straightforward your project will be.
Draw out the footprint of your bathroom area and plot in each item (e.g., bath, shower, toilet, vanity etc.) to see how you can maximize your space. Remember, you must allow enough room for doors to open and for free movement within the space.
At this stage, it’s important to concentrate on functionality rather than aesthetics.
2. Choose Your Builder
The bathroom is an important room in your home, so you’ll need a quality builder to manage your project. It’s always wise to get more than one quote and compare them. Arrange a time for your builder to visit your property to make a physical assessment of your renovation project: a face-to-face meeting is a great opportunity for you to assess each builder’s punctuality, professionalism, and overall approach to your project.
