Bathroom Renovation Steps

Bathroom Renovation Steps


Beginning your bathroom renovation journey is an exciting step in improving the overall look and feel of your home. Creating a functional bathroom layout that still feels like your personal style requires both significant planning and a team of qualified bathroom renovation specialists to guide you through the process.

Planning Your Renovation

It’s important to plan your bathroom renovation from the very start. This includes determining your budget and choosing the right bathroom designer and tradespeople to assist you with selecting the right layout and design for your space. With thorough planning, your bathroom renovation has the best chance of running smoothly and successfully.

Setting Your Budget

Knowing your bathroom renovation budget before commencing your project will help you make decisions around the team you want to work with, the features you want in your bathroom and the quality of fixtures that will meet your needs.

Once you’ve set your budget, it’s a good idea to put an extra 20% of your original figure aside for unforeseen expenses. As projects can only be quoted at a single point in time, it is possible that even the best-planned bathroom renovations may experience challenges along the way. The right team will work to the best of their ability to produce a luxury bathroom design that follows your budget while ensuring a high level of functionality and style.

Choosing the Right Specialists

Choosing the right bathroom renovation specialist will have a significant impact on the build’s efficiency and the quality of your final result. When it comes to selecting the right bathroom designers for your needs, it’s a good idea to thoroughly look through their portfolio to ensure their tastes align with yours. If they do, meeting with them to discuss budgets, layouts, styles and designs will help you choose whether you and the bathroom designer are a good fit.

At The Inside Project, our team of bathroom designers have collaborated with experienced tradespeople for many years. This ensures that we can use our expertise as bathroom renovation project managers, designers and specialists to guide our tradespeople and create bespoke, quality bathrooms that the whole family can enjoy.

Planning Your Bathroom Layout

After your budget has been set and your bathroom renovation project manager, design team and tradespeople have been chosen, it’s time to sit down together to plan your bathroom layout. Generally, the best bathroom layout will depend on your budget, existing space and whether you’re eager to move any plumbing or alter your bathroom’s existing fixtures.

For inspiration, you can explore some of our previous projects such as our Maribyrnong Bathroom Renovation and Moonee Ponds Bathroom Renovation.

Designing Your Bathroom

Once you’ve planned your layout, you will be presented with a wide range of bathroom design ideas that bring together your vision and personal style.

Your designer will work closely with you to confirm all the elements of your space, ensuring that you have a functional bathroom that maximises storage while also looking stylish and comfortable. For more ideas, take a look at our Bathroom & Ensuite Renovation in Yarraville.

Focusing on Functionality

The core of your entire bathroom renovation should be creating a functional bathroom design. Throughout the entire planning process, your chosen bathroom renovation specialists will take your family’s needs into consideration, using them to inform every design and layout decision. Ensuring everything works together to create a functional bathroom layout is vital for you to get the most out of your bathroom remodel.
