Style and Substance

Your bathroom renovations need to take into account not only the style that you are after, but it needs to be functional as well. Depending on the condition of the existing plumbing, bath, shower and sink, you might only want to change the look of your bathroom.

Basic Re-Decoration

If your bathroom is generally in good condition, you might want to consider just re-decorating. You would leave everything where it is, and give the room a whole new look by painting, accessorizing and changing features.  You might want to add or take away ‘furniture’ such as bathroom cabinets for a more drastically different look.

Simple Renovation

Maybe you want a new shower. Or a new bath. A simple renovation might involve moving or changing a feature, and if for example you need to do some repair work, it is worth thinking about making the most of the disruption and renovating at the same time. It is a good idea to seek a professional’s help, so you can see what options you have available to you.
