Many people wonder about which room in the house is the busiest. Many people think that it is the kitchen because that’s where we have our meals, and that’s where we all catch up in the evenings. However, they are wrong because it is the bathroom and we spend a great deal of our time in there getting ready for work, for school, and when going out on the weekends.
In most homes throughout Australia, there is always a queue forming outside in the morning, as family members wait their turn to get inside. There are frequently arguments about whose turn it is next and as a parent, it can become a complete nightmare to just get some time to yourself to relax. This is why the bathroom is the most important room in the house, and this is why it has to be perfect.
The bathroom can always be problematic
Many people when they move into a new home, or they have purchased one formerly owned by another family, are never happy with the bathroom, and they promise themselves that the moment they get some extra cash, they are going to do a bathroom refurbishment.
This will include, of course, ripping out and replacing the bathroom floor and wall tiles. If you are currently planning to change how your bathroom looks, then the following bathroom renovation tips should help you to make the right decisions.
Measure, and measure again
You need to figure out what the new layout of your bathroom is going to be. If you’re happy with the current layout, then leave things as they are, but if you do want to move things around then this is going to cost quite a lot because you might have to reposition your water pipes. Once you measure the area, you can start to pick out your new toilet and sink, and make sure you choose the right size of tile for the floor and the walls. If they are too big, it will make the room look smaller and vice versa.
Choose your tiles wisely
Don’t just assume that the large stores are the cheapest for the tiles that you want. Be sure to shop around and make sure that you get the right pattern and the right colour that will allow you to connect with your higher self, when you’re having a hot relaxing shower or bath. In many cases, the smaller dealers are cheaper to buy from, so shop local if at all possible.
Always remember to buy extra boxes of tiles because you never know when you’re going to need to replace one and it can be never guaranteed that the same tiles will be in stock in the future. If you want some more tips with regard to renovating and make additions to your home, have a look here.
You’re probably only going to get one chance to make the necessary changes that you want, for the next 10 to 15 years, so make sure that you make wise choices, so that you get the bathroom of your dreams.
