What have you got available to spend on completing the bathroom renovation?
PLANNING AND BUDGET
The sanware and the tiles and all the pretty bits to make your bathroom look amazing are just a portion of the final costs.
Additional costs to consider are the adhesive and grout, new power points and light fittings, possibly plumbing upgrades, removal of the old bathroom tiles, basins and baths and delivery and storage of your new materials, ready for installation.
You’ll need to chat to the plumber and electrician before you start, as they’ll need to be there at the beginning during demolition as well as at particular stages along the way – i.e. making sure the power to your backlit mirror or heated towel rail is there before the wall tiles go on, or that the shower will have correct drainage, before you lay the floor mosaic.
Discuss the scope of work required and get a quote from them – and their availability to be on site! They need to schedule their diaries around progress on your bathroom renovation. They’ve done it before and can offer good advice on the pitfalls to avoid.
Anticipate lots of chopping, cutting, mixing and dust – you’ll need to cover and tape the rest of your home to keep it clean.
An experienced project manager takes away a lot of the guesswork and hassle and can also assist with fine tuning a realistic budget, offering alternative solutions – choose wisely.
Budget sorted, layout and design ideas and a plan of action ready – it’s time to visit the Tiletoria showroom!
VISIT THE TILETORIA SHOWROOM
The staff have been involved with numerous creative clients over the years and are able to discuss your ideas and give you detailed advice on each and every aspect of your planned renovation. They can help you avoid costly mistakes.
Their catchphrase is “Luxe for Less” – finding those bespoke, luxurious pieces that will enhance the look of the space, at a great price.
Take a walk with them through the showroom displays to get a better idea of how things will look and work together.
There are options for all budgets, with ranges of baths, basins, taps and toilets to meet all pockets.
Also note how the tiles have been laid, possibly a herringbone layout?
Large format tiles help to visually increase the size of a space – with the added bonus of being easier to clean.
Lighting is just as important, and the showroom displays have been lit to create the perfect mood.
And talking about mood, there are mood boards everywhere. They can even help you create your own, helping you visualise what goes together and how the end product will look. Ask for a sample to take home with you.
The staff will guide you through the process, confirm the stock availability and get everything ready for you to get going on your renovation.
Renovating your bathroom is a process, both a creative one and a practical one.
I was incredibly lucky with the team on site, competent and professional, as well as the selection of tiles and sanware we purchased from Tiletoria. The results were amazing and worth the effort and investment.
Take your time in the planning, chat to the right people, be aware of what your budget is and be realistic about the time it will take to complete.
The sales team at Tiletoria will advise and assist along the way, ensuring you are able to create the bathroom of your dreams, adding value to your home and to your life.
