Thank you for visiting Bathroomguru Review – Your ultimate DIY home improvement destination for ideas on bath renovations, remodelling your bath, design tips & tricks, current washroom trends, lavatory repair, powder room product reviews and interviews with home improvement industry professionals. Check out our site to learn the secrets of professional washroom renovators and make sure the job is done right the first time. We have the insider tactics and techniques to help you fix up that ugly restroom!

If you are a first time home renovator, you should create a restroom renewal checklist to ensure a smooth transition from task to task and keep your development costs down. Fixtures such as faucets, pedestal sinks and medicine cabinets can be replaced quite easily when redecorating your small bathing area. However, if you are planning to put in a new bathtub, upgrade your shower, or re-tile your floor or walls then more planning and design preparation will be needed. If you don’t plan on doing the work yourself, finding a reputable home improvement contractor is very important.

Your bath alterations will be less expensive if you do the majority of the rebuilding yourself, but be sensible. If you don’t need to reposition the plumbing pipes or the ventilation air ducts, then you can probably do the work yourself. But if most of the work incorporates plumbing then you may want to hire a professional plumber, so be prepared to add this expense to your residential transformation budget.

Creating a theme for your bathing space will bring your spatial design elements together. You can hire a qualified decorator to help you find creative insights you may not have thought of by yourself or you can look at interior design pictures in magazines or online for inspiration. Your bathing area has evolved from being just a place to wash and perform bodily functions to creating a more personalize bathing space. A popular trend in washrooms is to transform your master bath into a home spa that incorporates design functionality with therapeutic rejuvenation. Another direction in lavatory construction is the incorporation of green eco-friendly building materials. Designing your bath can be done by anyone as long as you remember to apply the six principles of good washroom design.

Upgrading your bathroom can be fun and exciting and if done properly updating your habitat will be a good home investment for years to come. Come on in and lets get started with that bath renovation project you have been putting off for far tool long!
