Top tips when thinking about renovating your bathroom – some handy tips from Bathroom Butler.

Renovating a bathroom can be considered to be one of the toughest renovation processes to go through. Bathroom Butler, manufacturers of top-end stainless steel bathroom accessories and heated towel rails have shared some tips, that can be taken into account when renovating a bathroom.
  1. Choose the right people for the job, find good contractors, plumbers and electricians etc. Don’t try to save money here and cut corners on selecting top professionals as this can be an expensive mistake to make. If you are moving plumbing around — take pictures, document where the water pipes are being installed. This will help you later when you are installing your bathroom accessories to know where your pipes are, so you don’t drill the plumbing.


  1. People often think that the bathroom needs to be tiled throughout from floor to ceiling, which is not necessarily true. Tile only the areas that are exposed to water such as the shower area, behind the vanity and around the bath. Use tiles in combination with different materials to create interesting contrasts such as mixing marble and stone with wood and steel to bring a contemporary feel to a space that has been traditionally stereotyped as functional


  1. Plan ahead. Make sure you think of everything down to the smallest detail, even the electric point if you want to install a heated towel rail for example. Bathroom Butler’s heated rails add a touch of class and sophistication to your bathroom and keep towels dry and more hygienic, which was proven by a scientific study.


  1. It is important to budget accordingly and includes a 20 – 30% contingency for unexpected challenges. Something homeowners often forget about is the final fittings and finishes which bring the whole bathroom design together, so make sure you budget for bathroom accessories accordingly to ensure the overall look is successfully achieved, rather than being an afterthought at the end which can compromise the overall design.
