A bathroom renovation can be a daunting process. There are many decisions to be made along the way and completing the project will require detailed planning. But giving your bathroom the elegant upgrade you've always wanted will be worth it! Here's a list of ideas for your bathroom renovation that will help you plan the process and make the right decisions.

Design the bathroom of your dreams

There are many things to consider when you want to remodel your bathroom. A bathroom must be functional, practical, and preferably, a bit luxurious. Designing the bathroom of your dreams is all about having a thoughtful plan and budget. Use this list of ideas to help you get started:

Do you know your needs and wishes?

Start by figuring out what you want from your bathroom renovation. Use your current bathroom as a starting point: what do you like about it, what do you want to change, and what can be preserved? Your bathroom may not need a complete makeover; changing the tiles, fixtures, or interior décor is sometimes enough. If it isn't, the preparation you do before embarking on this new adventure is essential!

Think about the location of sockets and electrical appliances, ideas for lighting, storage space, and the position of windows and roof windows. It can be expensive, or even impossible, to go back and install items once the renovation has been done. A well-planned design can save you both time and money.

Key takeaways
  • Decide what you like and don’t like about your current bathroom, then decide if you need small changes or a complete renovation.
  • Natural light is the key to creating a spa-like atmosphere or luxurious bathroom design.
  • VELUX roof windows allow you to add daylight and fresh air without compromising privacy.

Do you have a plan? And a budget?

Whether your bathroom renovation is a DIY project or you're going to hire a contractor to do the job, a plan and a budget will go a long way!

A bathroom renovation is an investment. Start by establishing a budget and timeline. If you're doing the work yourself, allow more time for each step and consider hiring professionals for technical work such as plumbing and electrical.

A detailed plan also makes it easier for a contractor to understand what you want from the renovation. Make sure your contractor is on the same page as you - don't just assume - and spell out every part of the plan. Over time, keep checking in to make sure they're aligned with the plan.

Make the most of your bathroom renovation with these interior design tips

Small bathroom? Think big! Bathrooms are often smaller than other rooms in the house, so indulge a bit without going over budget. Heated floors of less than 100 square metres can be affordable. Smart showers and bathtubs save energy and add convenience. Consider what you can splurge on without going over budget, and when possible, reuse, recycle, repair, or buy second-hand.

Let in natural light and plenty of fresh air

Bring a new look and feel to your bathroom with natural light. Daylight makes your space come alive by bringing out the true colours of your walls and décor. When it comes to creating a spa-like atmosphere or luxurious bathroom design, natural light is key.
