Do’s and Don’ts of DIY Bathroom Renovations
Though bathroom renovations may look easy, they actually prove to be one of the hardest rooms in the house to renovate. When you’re wanting to do-it-yourself renovate, the job may become harder if you don’t know what to do and what fixtures and products that are cost-efficient.
If you’re a renovations rookie, here are some do’s and don’ts to keep in mind for your DIY bathroom renovations.
DO: Rework what you have
Not everyone has the budget to completely start from scratch with their bathroom renovations. So, there’s no need to splash out on each and every bathroom item, when you could just add a fresh coat of paint or add vibrancy with a new, bold colour.
Knowing how to implement selective changes will bring about the look of a total transformation, while still being budget-friendly and just by reworking what you already had.
DON’T: Go to too trendy
Yes, you read correctly. Bathroom trends like Hollywood-style mirror lightings and busy, granite bathroom countertops once ruled the bathroom scene. Bathroom trends come and go, and you ideally don’t want to renovate every ten years in anticipation of a new decade and new bathroom style trends.
Products like matte black bathroom tapware and neutral colour tones, are timeless, chic choices and definitely a ‘DO’ for your DIY bathroom renovations.
DO: Incorporate fresh and neutral colours
There’s nothing wrong with a white themed bathroom. The colour white in your home, and especially your bathroom, symbolises cleanliness and sterility. However, an all-white bathroom can be blinding and a bit bland.
Jazz up your white bathroom background with some DIY tapware in black matte shades. Classic or modern tapware ranges will also compliment your DIY bathroom renovations and provide brilliant contrasts to your fresh and neutral colour tones.
DON’T: Compromise on bathroom tapware quality
It’s tempting to buy the cheapest bathroom tapware, from cheap taps, spouts to cheap showerheads. While you’ll be saving some money in the short term, there’s no guarantee the bathroom tapware you buy will be durable enough to stand the test of time. You’ll also no doubt have trouble with confusing installation instructions (or lack thereof) with cheap-quality bathroom tapware.
