Before you start renovating your bathroom, it’s important to ask yourself a few different questions to make sure you get the bathroom you’ve always dreamed of. We have compiled a wish list to help you get started with your planning process.
Renovating your bathroom is easy to say and think about, but it’s actually quite difficult to do. It requires a lot of planning and steps before you can actually enjoy your bathroom. Fortunately, below you will find a handy little checklist that will allow you to access the bathroom of your dreams.
Determining if you need a building permit
Next, you need to determine whether you need a building permit to renovate your bathroom. In Australia, any work on an existing wall involving a change in the structure, shape and functionality of the building requires a building permit.
However, if you are renovating on a small scale with a low-impact development, you may not even need a permit. You can talk to your local county to determine if you need it or not.
How much will it cost?
While many people fear this part of the process, it is a necessary evil. The next step is to determine your Budget and figure out how much it will all cost. How much are you willing to spend on your bathroom renovation?
If you have not yet defined the exact Budget for your renovation, now is the time to get a complete quote for your needs. The offer you receive and your Budget depend on the size of your bathroom, the target level and a number of other factors. As a rule of thumb, don’t spend more than five to ten percent of the total property value on your bathroom renovation.
