Are you looking for a new bathroom style for your HDB or landed property? If yes, you should do a proper bathroom renovation. A well-managed bathroom renovation is 10 times better than an impulsive bathroom redecoration. To have a manageable bathroom renovation Singapore, consider creating a checklist that consists of your budget planning and your target.
Small things matter in performing a bathroom renovation! If you’re going to renovate your bathroom, a bathroom renovation checklist is definitely a must! Besides for estimating your expense, a remodel checklist is also beneficial for preventing you from purchasing unnecessary things!
In order to obtain the right materials on your checklist, you need a renovator getting them for you. Elpis Interior Design is here to help you! We believe that our expertise in design and build services will ease you to have a perfect bathroom remodel!
Some Do’s For Your Bathroom Remodeling
We believe that the effort you have to put in remodeling your bathroom is undoubtedly much. To avoid having a chaotic renovation, here are tips to guide you creating a bathroom renovation checklist!
A List of Priorities and Expectations
The first question you need to answer is: “What is your big-picture goal?” If you have any, put it on the list! Divide it into small details so the purpose will be achieved well. After that, write down your priorities and expectations. It’s okay if you have high expectations, but you have to put your priorities on the top list.
Deciding the amount of renovations before doing a bathroom remodeling is a must. Add details to your budgeting plan and calculate them. For an easy budget setting, you can hand over all your budget planning to Elpis Interior Design!
Pick Your Design Style and Color
One-tone colors or multiple colors are fine! The thing that is noteworthy is that you have to be consistent in choosing the colour scheme for your bathroom.
Materials and Permits
Before starting the renovation, try to buy your needs as much as possible. This will give you a lot of ease since you don’t have to go back and forth to the manufacturers. Also, consider getting an upgrade for some electronics in your bathroom.
DIY or Hire a Pro?
Decide whether you can do some stuff yourself or you should hire a pro before starting the renovation. It might give you more effort, but hey! You could save some money if you don’t have to hire a pro to do simple things. So, yeah. Give a checklist DIY a shot!
Items to Add/Remodel
If your shower screen is still in a good condition, then check a “No” to add/remodel items on your checklist. Does the medicine cabinet limit your bathroom space? Try installing a floating vanity! Add that to the “Items to Add” list. A wall mounted cabinet would never go wrong!
Legends said that an ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure. Yes, expecting for the worst case scenario is sometimes better to anticipate the obstacles you might find during the renovation. Ask yourself detailed questions like “Will the new tub fit through the door?” if the answer is no, then try finding a solution for it.
Firstly, you need to choose the type of sink you need. Do you need to create a spacious illusion to your small HDB bathroom? Then get yourself a wall-mounted basin with a large mirror above that. Your sink faucet also has to match the basin you got.
Create a Timeline
A logical timeline is probably the little thing we often miss. As the matter of fact, a timeline helps you in structuring several crucial installments. For instance, don’t finish bathroom floors before installing the shower.
Here are the items whose prices have to be calculated wisely before you install/upgrade to your bathroom.
