Will you want an ocean-themed bathroom with a rainfall shower or to install a jacuzzi bathtub with a clean and crisp minimal styling?
It’s time to do some research. Let yourself get inspired by the types of bathrooms you can discover.

Think about how you want to think when you step into your bathroom first thing in the morning or at the end of a long stressful day.
Step 2: Assess your existing bathroom
Have a good look around. Think about your typical day-to-day life, whether you’re queuing for the toilet amongst your family members or planning a long soothing bath filled with bath bombs, think about the logistics of your bathroom; The space you have, its current layout, and anything you feel like is missing.
The tool of carefully planning and preparing will benefit you by helping you stick to a timeline along with the budget you have set for your renovation project. The more you plan ahead of the renovation, the better.
Step 3: Consider the technicalities

If you’re reconfiguring the room, you should find out where the waste pipes are and how your new layout might be affected by the electrics. Always seek professional advice when it comes to fitting, heating, electrics and maybe even tiling. There is a whole host of companies that could be suitable in the South West such as E-Electrical. There are some things best left to the professionals rather than trying to follow a quick hack video you found online.
Having the right team to support you through your renovation makes the whole process go a lot smoother.
Step 4: Time to add the detail
Once you have a grasp on your style and space, the fun part can begin. Shopping for the right products. The time where you really start to see the renovation process start taking shape and bringing life back into your bathroom.
Whether that’s considering the lighting to ensure you look fresh every morning regardless of the night before along with considering whether you want underfloor heating for those cold toes or large towel warmers to keep your towel nice and toasty ready for when you exit the bath? Of course, don’t forget the storage, from cabinets to whale-shaped soap dispensers.
