Are you considering a bathroom renovation? Whether you want to update your bathroom's style, improve its functionality, or increase your home's value, a bathroom renovation project can be an exciting but daunting adventure. Therefore, it's essential to have a plan in place. In this article, we will guide you through the necessary steps to get started on your bathroom renovation journey.

Work out your budget

Work out your budget before you embark on any home improvement project; it's crucial to establish a realistic budget. Determine how much you're willing to invest in your bathroom renovation and allocate funds to different aspects of the project, such as materials, labor, and unexpected expenses. Consider consulting with a professional or researching typical costs to ensure your budget aligns with your renovation goals.

Gather inspo

To bring your vision to life, gather inspiration from various sources. Websites like Pinterest and Instagram, as well as our Project Inspiration Gallery are great places to start. Explore different styles, colour palettes, and finishes to determine what resonates with your personal taste and desired bathroom aesthetic. If you need help narrowing it down, discover the five trends we worked with House and Garden Editor in Chief, Tanya Buchanan to identify.

Build your Moodboard

A mood board will help you collect your ideas and images, displaying your theme, colour, and design direction. Creating a well-resolved mood board saves time in the design process, providing a solid foundation. We recommend continually referring to the mood board throughout the reno process to keep you on track and to help inform your design choices. By creating an account with us, you can use our free Moodboard tool and use this a to communicate your chosen aesthetic in a clear and visual way with our showroom consultants, your plumber, designers or any trades you’re working with.

Measure your bathroom space

Accurate measurements are crucial for effective planning and layout considerations. Measure your bathroom space meticulously, including the dimensions of existing plumbing, windows, niches, and any architectural elements that will affect your design choices. By having precise measurements, you can utilise visualisation tools like Imagin3D to experiment with different layouts and product placements, helping you refine your renovation plans.

Consult with a showroom professional

Engaging with experts can streamline your renovation process and provide valuable insights. Contact your local Reece Showroom or Bathroom Life to book a consultation with one of our showroom consultants. They have extensive knowledge of bathroom products and can guide you through planning your layout and product selections. Whether you have questions, need assistance with planning, or want to narrow down your product options, they are there to share their expertise. The showrooms are also a great space to draw inspiration from the displays, touch and feel the product in real life. Showroom consultants will assist you and show you the range of colours, finishes, features and configurations our products come in. You can book a consultation online here.

By sticking to a solid budget, a thoughtfully curated mood board, a clear layout, and guidance from a showroom consultant, you’ll be well-prepared to embark on your bathroom renovation journey. Embrace the process, stay focused on your vision, and enjoy the transformative experience of creating a bathroom that reflects your style and meets your needs. Best of luck on your exciting renovation adventure!
