As the festive season draws to a close, and you take time to reflect on the year that’s passed as well as the year ahead – what better time to finally begin that bathroom renovation you’ve been dreaming of? Now that the guests have returned home and your house is once again your own, you’ve got the time and the space to get stuck into the task.
Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned home-renovator, the bathroom is one area which can be daunting. You’ve only got to watch the latest reality shows to realise that the bathroom can be the most important room in the house. It can also be the hardest to tackle. Budget blowouts, plumbing disasters and decorating dilemmas are all possibilities, and can lead to your dream renovation turning into a bathroom horror story.
Here are the top 5 reasons, despite your experience level, that you need to hire a professional for your bathroom renovation:
1. Style tips from a professional
Your home reflects your individual style and character: Your bathroom should be no different. Whether or not you’ve got a good grasp on your preferred personal style, it can be hard to combine all elements to create a harmonious, workable space. Hiring a professional renovator means that you can tap into their years of experience and know-how. Your renovator has seen hundreds of bathrooms, of all shapes and sizes and they know what works. Gold Coast bathroom renovators Intrend Bathrooms and Interiors are not only master renovators, but designers and decorators as well – their team will help you to achieve exactly the look you’ve been dreaming of.
2. What will fit in your space and make the most of it
We all know what it’s like to use a small, pokey bathroom and wonder why on Earth there is barely room to reach the shower beyond the vanity unit. Poorly designed bathrooms can make everyday use almost unbearable. Here’s where a qualified, professional renovator comes in handy. Not only have they seen it all before, they also understand how to get the absolute best use out of your space. You may be dealing with a tiny bathroom footprint, or simply wanting to make the most out of the area you’ve got: your professional renovator will help you to design your layout and choose the pieces which will work best in your new bathroom.
3. The best products to suit your budget – avoid a budget blowout
How many times have you seen couples on The Block get to their final week, only to find they’ve blown all of their cash on that $12,000 bathtub? Whether you’ve got a tight budget or not, your choice of products is important. An experienced bathroom renovator has an understanding of products to suit every budget, and has the relationships with suppliers to get you the best value for money. Avoid a nasty budget blowout on your bathroom and consult with a professional.
4. Professional finish
You may be fairly handy with the occasional Spakfilla repair or wobbly table-leg fix – but have you ever sealed a shower to be watertight? The consequences of a less-than-perfect job in the bathroom can be astronomical. This is one area of the house where you definitely do not want to take chances. Your professional renovator will ensure that your new bathroom features immaculate finishes to match those beautiful new tiles. Don’t DIY and regret it!
5. Avoid the stress and potential disasters of doing it yourself
Blowing the budget, or blowing the sewerage pipe: You don’t need that kind of stress. Unless you’re a skilled specialist, there are any number of unforeseeable problems that can arise when renovating something as important as your bathroom. Not only will it keep you up at night, it can also put your bathroom out of action for much longer than planned. Renovation is a much more complicated process than many people understand, before undertaking the task. Proper design, fitting, installation and finishing of your bathroom is of the utmost importance to your successful renovation. Consult with a professional today, and make that dream of an amazing bathroom renovation a reality.
