1. Doing the inventory of renovation projects
Starting to renovate the bathroom requires assessing the need for change, if you have to replace everything or relook some elements only. Because the budget will not be the same. The most important thing is to respect the one you have and to adapt the renovation accordingly. This requires meeting incompressible criteria such as:
What to renovate : Is it about replacing the tub with a shower? To change the furniture? Tiling? The area of ??the room : The cost of flooring or walls can vary significantly depending on the size. The materials used : Are you sensitive to quality or is it just the visual effect that matters?
Correctly answering these criteria will determine whether you are doing renovation work yourself or if you need to hire a professional.
2. Estimate the budget
Once you have identified your needs, it is a question of knowing the prices of the changes to be made to make an estimate of the budget to be engaged in the renovation. Floor, tiles, new shower, bathtub. Here are some benchmarks in price ranges:
Simple removal of old elements (washbasin, bathtub, shower): between 70 and 200 € Laying of tiles on the floor : from 40 to 60 € per square meter. Laying of faience on the wall : from 40 to 90 € per square meter.
3. Optimize expenses
Without having recourse to a professional, you can launch yourself in the renovation of your bathroom by making clever changes at a lower cost.For example, using paint to repaint old tiles, replace flooring with easy-to-install vinyl or PVC rolls, or accessorise the room to make it warm or zen.
4. Choose the decoration of your bathroom
This is the most pleasant moment in the renovation: when we choose what type of decoration we will offer to its bathroom! Everything is possible but we can not do everything either, we will have to decide for one or the other option. Here are some ideas:
A bathroom with a zen spirit : Parquet or gray tiles, white paint, plants, teak furniture and bamboo accessories, for a Zen bathroom, priority is given to natural colors .
A vitamin-rich bathroom : We choose a very flashy pop color – a yellow, an orange, a green – to paint a wall in the bathroom and brush our teeth to music every day!
A minimalist bathroom : A duo of black and white, some well-chosen designer accessories and your minimal bathroom will have everything you need!
